Robin Sparkles and Canada jokes are always gold on this show. Loved all the guest stars, too.

Maybe the best episode of the whole series.

Holy crap Coulier sold that whole sequence. It was mildly entertaining bit and then BAMM! Coulier....then Sagat. Awesome.

Not sure who said it previously but they really need to abandon the college flashbacks with Lily. Hannigan just can't pull off the 20 year old Lily anymore.

Also, I didn't recognize Priestley at all.

The bit with Dave Coulier was even funnier when you know that he has stated that he thinks that the Alanis Morrisette song "You Oughta Know" was written about him.

That was well reported here during that time so I'm sure many knew that. I assume people(outside of Canada) know of Alanis's pre-"alternative" career too.

Yep.

Not the best, but one of the best in a really long time.

I was really surprised to see all the cameos, specially the guy from Rush and K.D. Lang. Somehow I wouldn't think they would do something like this.

They're Canadian. You just have to ask nicely.

I really loved all the Canadian jokes. Stereotypical...but true. Tim Horton's is great. I could go for some Timbits right now.

Great episode! Do most Americans know about Tim Horton's? I wouldn't have had a clue if I didn't know any Canadians.
