Loved that.

It's good to see Craig heavily involved in an episode.

I agree. One of these days I'm just going to have to suck it up, take some Dramamine, and watch Cloverfield.

I got all the jokes but I didn't laugh once - not a bad episode, it just didn't bring the funny.

At first I thought the Pan Flute players were only going after poor people (hence only Kenny dancing)....guess not.

But man, when that Indy line came up I lost it.

And to someone else who posted - yeah, it was great to finally see the core four altogether again. Its been a while.

How many folks here don't have any Peruvian pan flute bands nearby? I got a kick out of the beginning of the episode because I see those bands every day.

I've never seen one in public in my life.

Saw them several years ago around flea markets and those types of things, but not in a looooong time.

That's probably why the episode seemed kind of dated to me.

I've never seen one, and I live in the northeast.

A two parter? I figured next week we'd get an episode on the election, it's really they're last chance before Nov. 4th.

I had no idea what the pan flute band thing was (but I'm in Michigan... I didn't see much red on that map) so the ep was kind of flat for me. But I did love Craig talking about how nobody hangs out with them.

I wasn't crazy about the Peruvian Pan Flute stuff either. Kind of a redux on the homeless/hippies stuff in past episodes. The guinea pigs and "our friend was raped in peru" totally redeemed the episode, though.

Yeah, I live in a big city and haven't seen them either. Heck I WORK at Union Station (train station for the city) which is 99% tourists and never saw one.

It was okay... I'll reserve judgement until I see the 2nd part. I do have to admit if Matt and Trey take a powder on an election episode opportunity for this pair of "bank" episodes, I will be VERY disappointed.

The pan flute guys are always down on the Riverwalk, especially right by the food court at the River Center Mall.

I didn't get the pan flute references either, but I have a feeling that part 2 will twist this into something else...

it wasn't really funny, but at least it was different.

Pan flute bands are all over NYC. I see them in Grand Central and Times Square nearly every day. It always sucks because I think someone's playing the theme to "Monkey Island" and then it turns out to be some generic crappy song.
