One of the best episodes in awhile. Loved Andy talking about April and Chris getting married.

Loved Ben's great pride in being nationally ranked in "Settlers of Catan".

Loved every minute of Ron. His expressions and comments at Tom's bar. The ice cream in his mustache, then his giddiness at the steak house. Perfect. Just perfect.

Just a really great, "feel good" episode. I was literally smiling at the end of it.

Same. Loved it. The intro was GREAT: "Water? As in fire water? That's racist....But seriously, I'll have a whisky."

I loved that they were correctly using the 5-6 player expansion for a 6-player game.

still can't believe THIS is Andy. Zero Dark Thirty treated him well.

The scotch lotion and the steak house guy's reaction about not needing to specify liquid was my favorite part, though the vodka flashes of light were also fun.

"THIS is the wrong way to drink alcohol!"

The aroma-sphere had me burst out laughing.

Was it me, or was the aroma-sphere the Entertainment 720 warehouse?

Wait... Settlers of Catan is actually a real game?

I'm with you guys... it really was a great episode. This series has the most likeable characters and has many "feel good" moments/episodes without being cheesy.

Chris: To Ron
Ron: Just Perfect. Perfect Chris.

Tom (cluing in only after standing on Lucas Oil field): Ohhhhhh... this is where they play the games.

Gerry: I'm a big fan, Mr. Luck
Andrew Luck: Ok guy, settle down.

I also enjoyed the bit about getting the Longest Road card with seven road segments and hitting 10 victory points.

I LOVED the Catan part - it has validated for me all those Catan nights spent not socializing like a normal twenty something. I would probably enjoy a similar Bachelor party!

I could totally relate to the perplexed reactions of his friends.

Yes Coral, it is a real game.

Agreed, this episode was incredible. I already loved this show, but it elevated my appreciation for it even more. It is more than just a great comedy.

As memory serves from last year, Rob Lowe and Jim Irsay actually are friends. I love how this show always pulls actual Indiana sports stars. I believe I've heard them say the "holy grail" is to use Larry Bird at some point.

Yeah, Rob Lowe is friends with Irsay. Back during the Peyton Manning thing before he was cut loose by the Colts, Lowe tweeted some "inside" information.

Yes, it is. Sadly I have participated in a Settlers of Catan party night.
