I can't believe there's only two episodes left after this one. I'm going to miss it during the hiatus.

"If I don't get a solid five it ruins my sunny disposition." - Ron

"You don't have to have th seat so far up." - Detlef Schrempf
"...Yes, I do." - Tom

"Do these phones dial out?" - Donna
"Yes, why?" - Leslie
"No reason." - Donna

The bit about Jerry having the switchboard was great. I don't think I'll ever get tired of the characters verbally abusing him, lol.

"Sweet! Headlining!" - Andie
"Yeah, headlining...at 2 am...on cable access..." - April

"I suffer from a condition known as Sleep Fighting." - Ron
"That must be horrible." - Leslie
"Only when I'm losing." - Ron

The beginning with the puppy and seeing them lose money while Ron was caning that chair was great!

I didn't realize Jerry was Gerry, lol.

I loved when Leslie was about to drop her pants it cut to "Stand By...Experiencing Technical Difficulties."

"I'm not big on charities. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Don't teach a man to fish and you feed yourself. He's a grown man, fishing is not that hard." - Ron

Detlef looked odd without his old goofy flat top.

Another awesome episode - sure last night's Community had a lot of brilliant moments, but I think this episode delivered more solid laughs. Tom singing in the club after only having had 2 light beers - GOLD.

I loved Tom in the club, he was great! This show is hilarious, second to Modern Family for me this season.

Gerry plays the piano like a virtuoso, and everyone's either bored or hating it... and Leslie with the "ok, enough of that racket" comment.

Poor Gerry... he's the Meg Griffin of this show.

Anyone else notice Amy Poehler wrote this episode?

It was her first writing credit on the show. And it came out pretty good.

This was such a hilarious episode, easily the funniest of the season so far.

I noticed and I hope she writes more. Wish Tina Fey would write more 30 Rock shows.

Amy will be on SNL tonight.

The best line for me was "It's Gerry's Sex Night? That ruins sex AND tonight!"

Hilarious that Leslie's solution to stop Mark proposing was to pull her pants down.
