Personal Notes:
Use a 10 inch pie pan for best results. Use of a 9-inch pie pan has been known to overflow the pie plate. And, if your 'helper' takes the pie out of the oven too soon and turns the oven off, and then you put the pie back into the oven and turn the oven back on, a not-so-small oven fire may result (from the rich pie ingredients that overflowed onto the oven coils.) If your 'helper' tries to extinguish the flames by whacking at them with a cookie sheet, it will only make the problem worse ('fanning the flame" is the technical term). Use of a kitchen-sized fire extinguisher is helpful in extinguishing the blaze, although one should note that, once pulled, the extinguisher will completely empty itself. Good to know. But not too hard to clean up, all things considered. Try to avoid 'extinguishing' the pie, as the extinguisher probably has 'chemicals known to cause cancer to man'. If you get a little on the pie, cover it with ice cream before serving it to discriminating guests.
