Loved the They Might Be Giants reference, and I thought for a while that the windmill woman played Gretchen Speck in "Wonderfalls" - they look somewhat familiar. All in all, a very good episode, just as quirky as ever.

Dash Mihok has been in quite a few different things. No telling where you know him from. Personally, I remember him best from the modernized Romeo and Juliet, the Thin Red Line, and the Day After Tomorrow.

This show keeps getting better! I was in tears tonight - but cheesy mechanical pigeons will do that to me. Excellent episode!

"Hand up!"

The musical interludes definitely fit the show. I hope they continue them.

I think this may be one of the best shows on TV right now. I mean by the end of the show you can't help but smile and feel good. I loved tonight's ep and how things all worked out.

Yeah Jayma Mays is awesome. She was also in a few episodes of Ugly Betty. Someone needs to give her a fulltime role.

It is interesting though. I kinda felt like they wrote her off the show because she DID have a new gig lined up...

I wish they would have explained why the redhead had a wooden leg. Great episode despite that. Its just quirky and funny, but also very well written and develops the characters a lot more than other shows. I wish they would expand on the PI though. I feel that he is kind of shallow (meaning all he ever does is complain about Chuck.) He did have the best line ofthe show so far... "Bitch! I was in the vicinity!"

Good examples, but when I see him I immediately think of Mr. Frying Pan in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

Another great episode.
I like how the writers are working Olive into the episodes and it not feeling forced. I'm so intrigued to see if she's going to discover Ned's ability or if the aunts are going to find Chuck is still alive.
I also get a laugh from seeing Cod's face whenever Ned and Chuck get all lovey-dovey.

That would be "Bitch! I was in proximity!"

Favorite line was when PI said, after Lefty Lem escaped. " One Armed Bitch is Speedy."

Great Episode. I picked up on the "Birdhouse in Your Soul" reference about 20 seconds before Olive explicitly says the title, but that they went on to actually sing the song as well was even better.

I also liked how the three members of the love story in this episode (the fugitive, the girl, and the pigeon) all had prosthetic limbs.

I missed last weeks episode (stupid thing didnít record! ) but I like that Olive knows about Chuck; she still doesnít know that Ned has the power to bring people back to life though, which is good.

I agree that Chi McBrideís character (Emerson) isnít as well developed, but I think the writers will most likely develop his character more in future episodes; its been renewed for a full 22 episode season, so thereís lots of time. Heís been excellent as the comedic guy thus far and Iím glad to see him as a regular on a TV series again.

I would never dance on that roof! Those Aunts are great supporting characters.

She doesn't really "know" about Chuck. According to the narration, she thinks Chuck faked her death and fooled her aunts.
