I doubt they could top last week's patched-together ep, but it would be nice if they tried.

Denny's closing was great

Go Brad

While that little bitchy snack cake lawyer was right, it sure was satisfying seeing Schmidt kick her ass in court.

Lots of great laughs. All the characters have such unique personalities and interactions.

Brad's line after denise said intercourse had me laughing the hardest. But I already forgot it. I think it probably was the awkward pause then brad saying something like 'which would be the...?'

When Edwin was going gung-ho about suing, I definitely burst out laughing again when he mentioned suing the federal government for not regulating things enough.

Larry Miller is great as Edwin Poole. And the beginning w/ him and Denny reminding everyone whose names were on the door and including Shirley.



Brad is money.

This is the only thing that I do "not like" about this show, as much as I like Brad, I just want him to be Eddie.

Back to back excellent episodes. I know they need to give the other cast members stuff to do but Denny/Alan is why I tune in. It took Shatner 40 years or so but he finally found someone he plays off as well as he did with Nimoy. I wonder was this episode also part of an episode not broadcast by ABC last season? Also, I'll take more Larry Miller please as he is only one of the funniest actors on the planet. Next week another Waiting For Guffman alum, Parker Posey.

Me three.

Didn't care much for the whole Brad/Denise thing. Didn't care much for Poole's storyline at first...until the "Skinny little bitch" showed up. Who was she? Crane/Shore stuff was gold. As usual.

Not according to the production number: Last week's was 1F18, while this week's is 2F20. I think they just did a good job of melding last week's into the season.

Denny's closing.

It must be the same corn syrup that the Boston video game manufacturer uses for his products.
