    Jimmie Johnson may have gotten some southern hicks (just kidding, I mean passionate personable NASCAR fans) to tune into Breaking In for the first time with his appearance, but the show is still the same as it always is: a few funny lines, but a bunch of characters who are just far too over the top. The show moves a million miles per hour, which I guess is okay for a racing episode, but they just need to slow things down.

    I chuckled a couple of times, but I also shook my head at some of the lame jokes I was surprised made the final edit.

    I gave Breaking In a shot, but I don't know if I'm going to watch any more.moreless

    This just in: "Breaking In" is getting significantly better. I actually did laugh at a few lines even though the laughs were usually few and far from each other. Michael Rosenbaum should be a series regular, he's doing a fantastic job as the arrogant boyfriend.

    Trevor Moore needs more screen time! He only got, what, 2 lines in this episode? The cast's dynamics were great and the printer story line wasn't as awful as I pegged it out too be.

    The flashbacks continue to be the best thing about this show. Also, I love the pacing. Comedy still needs some work, but it's definitely getting there. The cast is really keeping me watching.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Melanie: So let me get this straight. You can hack into the FBI mainframe and put the Hamburglar on the most wanted list, but you...
      Cameron: But I managed to lock my keys in my car. Yes, we established that.

    • Dutch: (to Cameron) Hey, there he is. My girl's asexual bestie. Totally nonthreatening. I love this guy.

    • Cameron: Hey, a hybrid? What happened to your gas guzzler?
      Dutch: Going green, Broheim. Yeah, I saw this intense movie about how we're killing our planet.
      Cameron: "An Inconvenient Truth."
      Dutch: "Water World." Yeah, the great Kevin Costner plays this fish dude. Really opened my eyes. So... I bought this puppy. Then I ripped out all that electric crap, dropped in an ass-ton of ponies. Well, I got a Michael Bolton. Giddyap!

    • Marcus: I like your face. You have a sister?
      Cameron: No.
      Marcus: How about a wig?

    • Jimmie Johnson: So, um, how much do you know about NASCAR?
      Cameron: You mean the one where the guys with the mullets drive around in a circle and call it a sport? Not a fan. Why do you ask?

    • Dutch: (to Jimmie) Oh, I'm more than a fan, man. You're my second favorite human on the planet right after the guy who invented boobs!

    • Oz: Our newest client... one Jimmie Johnson, best known for being...
      Cameron: Being 5-time consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup champion and the Associated Press' Athlete of the Year 2009.
      Oz: Looky here. Someone figured out how to type "NASCAR" into their little computer machine-y.

    • Oz: Hey. Hey. I told you to stop fixing things around here.
      Cash: I know, I know, but hear me out. Look, I gave the copier a fully robotic brain. So now it has a F.P.G.A. neural cluster with monster computing power.
      Oz: Can it still make copies?
      Cash: It's a work in progress. I'm fixing it.

    • Cameron: Please don't banish me back to the I.T. annex.
      Oz: Calm down, chicken wing. Mistakes happen. It's like the time I went hunting with my friend. We'll call him Dick. He got super wasted and shot a guy in the face. Now ol' Dickie wanted to cap him again and bury him in the woods, but we did the right thing. We let the CIA take the rap. Understand what I'm trying to say?
      Cameron: Uh... yeah. You were with Dick Cheney when he shot that guy?
      Oz: (nods) No.
