    Seriously, Jim, Andy, and Ryan are the new Three Stooges, and Cheryl and Dana are like the new Lucy and Ethal. Together, the make a great cast. This episode made me laugh so hard. It was just plain funny, and classic Jim. This season has had one great episode after another. Its a shame sitcoms are being killed by reality shows. But nonetheless, this episode was terrific, IMO. Jim is, IMO, the funniest sitcom currently on the air, of course, since sitcoms are a dying thing, there aren't as many sitcoms as there used to be. But I will definetly remember Jim as one of the great ones.moreless
  • More cartoonish than ever

    I would never expect much realism in this show but this episode seems to have stretched things so far that I didn't enjoy it at all.

    This is supposed to be Chicago, not some small town where a museum might not have guards.

    I can understand a dinosaur skeleton having a sign that says "Do not touch" but the reason wouldn't be because it's going to fall apart. Can you imagine that it *never* gets touched with all the kids who visit a musuem? Can you imagine the lawsuits if the dinosaur fell on those kids?

    Maybe I could have bought the plot if Andy slipped and caused a chain reaction that resulted in a more substantial blow to the dinosaur.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Gracie hands Jim his false ID, she says, "Here we go, Mr. Dimas." This presumably refers to Jim's nonexistent "friend" Gus Dimas in Season 3's "Imaginary Friend".

    • When the T-Rex skeleton collapses, the pieces sound as if they are made from polystyrene plastic instead of solid rock like real fossils. This suggests the museum has an artificial display skeleton, but the imitation bones were really created so that the actors could lift and handle the immense pieces.

    • When Cheryl and Dana go to the movies, they reveal that the movie stars Matthew McConaughey. Two months before this episode aired, Matthew McConaughey's hit movie "We Are Marshall" opened. Kimberly Williams-Paisley played McConaughey's wife in that movie.

    • Animal House
      At the end of the episode when Jim is leaving the museum, he is jumping around exactly like John Belushi did in the 1978 movie "Animal House" when he is spying on the sorority house.
