    This episode had a lot of funny parts, but sometimes they let Roger go a little too crazy. That whole "precious" thing was just insanity, as was the hole in the ground full of horny British women.



    But I did like Stan's idolizing of Ronald Reagan and how it led him to Nancy Reagan who pretended to be crazy to ward off the intruders.



    Sometimes this show is really clever, and it always is funny, but I was just not that crazy about tonight's episode. I felt that it went a little overboard and could have avoided things such as the hot tub at the end.moreless

      The title of this episode is a parody/reference to the J.R.R. Tolkien story/movie The Return of the King. Also referenced in this episode from the book/film are the characters of Legolas, Aragorn, and Gandalf. Roger also freaks out and starts acting like Gollum, wanting his "Precious," and trying to cast the medal/ring in the fire to destroy it. Finally, Roger bites off Stan's finger just like Gollum bit off Frodo's finger.
