: What's the meaning of "pick-a-peck"? It's in the title of an animation episode (Ranma 1/2 ep 140) which I'm having to translate. I searched using Google, Dictionary.com, Answers.com and here, and unfortunately I couldn't get a clue of this expression's meaning. :(

: Thanks in advance for any help provided.

A peck is a unit of measurement. I always see it as a bushel of sorts.
Literally, pick a peck means to gather a large quantity of something.
