  • Earl tries to write off Little Chubby who has taken over for his father after his death, because a kick in the nuts changed him from a nasty person to a good person. But helping him makes him revert back, so Earl is in a quandry

  • I am not a huge fan of Norm, but he did a great impression of Burt Reynolds. Everytime he did the quick laugh, I started laughing my a$$ off. He had Burt down to a T.
