Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Rat Dog, 10/14/07

Loved it. The phone switch was predictable but the outcome hilarious, esp. Leon's part.

The ending...one of the best in Curbs history.

Pretty good episode. Prettay, prettay, prettay good!

I just thought the pacing was better than the last couple of episodes, and there wasn't any extreme Larry behaviour.

Hilareous ending, but still overall an average episode, as this whole season has been pretty sub-par. Take away Leon, and this season blows, the guy is funny in every scene with Larry.

I swear, Kevin Farley has the same mannerisms, voice, and look (especially with the sideburns and mustache) as his brother - it's spooky. It was a nice surprise. I haven't seen him since "2gether".

Wow didn't know that was his brother, but the first thing I thought when when I saw him was Chris Farley.

I can't believe that was Farley's brother! I kept saying throughout how much he reminded me of him, just like the pervert busdriver Chris Farley played from Billy Madison.

I didn't love the episode. To me, the best Curbs are the ones that don't have the stories all forced together, like I felt that this one did.

So what was Leon applying for? Was it a telemarketing job? He doesn't exactly seem like a financial services type of guy. And what about Vivica? Do we know what she does?

The scene at the end with the Rat Dog is the hardest I've laughed in a long time. The camera angles were priceless.

I didn't know that was Farley's brother but he definitely reminded me of him. Was he actually going in for a kiss at the end of their 'date?'

The early setup bits seemed too scattered and forced, but the payoff at the end was a howler.

God, I love this show. Between the "cocksucker," the hand job, and the rat dog, I was dying.

That's what it looked like!

Loved when Larry and Leon threw each others phones from the balcony.

Started slow and finished with a bang. Leon is just absolutely hilarious. His phone conversation with Hal had me laughing harder than anything in a long time.

I loved how they both lied to each other about whether they got a call.

Best episode so far this season!
Everyone's look of disgust at Larry after he stomps the spider was hilarious.
The rat dog stomping was just as funny. Wrong, but funny.

I was wondering why they made such a big deal of the stomping and spider-killing early on. The ending pretty much cleared that up.

The deaf woman was kind of hot, who is she?

Sammy has grown a lot, naturally considering the long hiatuses between seasons of Curb.

I agree! She looks familiar, too, but I can't place her.

Noticed this as well. A really big difference, from what I remember.

Great episode. Farley killed me. It makes me miss his borther even more. "It looked like a rat..." Leon has been a great addition. The phone switch had me dying.
