  • NOTES (2)


    • Mike: I thought the ostrich guys were sick in the head.

      Mike is referring to the Ostrich Farmer episode (#2.2) where Mike had to enter a pen of large hissing and kicking ostriches. He had to try to catch the ostriches by grabbing them by the neck and putting a hood over the head to lead them out of the pen.
