    I think a lot of people had a problem with this episode because it didnt do anything as far as advancing the main story of the plot with Vinces next job. I did however find all of the side stories to be very comical and in my mind that more then made up for the episode without any Vince drama. I liked the Vince / Eric drama with the two girls, I thought the writing really showed the character of Eric a little bit more. His relationship with Sloane has lasted much longer then I would have oringinally have guessed, so I wonder how much we will continue to see her in season three. I thought Turtle / Dramas storyline was also very good. Once again comedy rained supreme as the two of them try to nail two hot girls they found while in the park. And obviously the climax of the episode had to be Flyod and Aris parts. Pivens acting on those scenes were amazing and Flyod actually did a really good job standing out on his own in this episode without the connection with Piven to help him out. Overall I thought this was one of the funniest episodes of the shows history, which makes up for the lack of the plot moving foward.moreless
  • Turtle and Drama try to pick up women in a dog park, with partial success. E and Vince dodge Amanda's calls about the Wharton flick. Meanwhile, Ari pimps out his assistant.moreless

    I have to say that I love Lloyd, although why he stays with Ari is sometimes a mystery. Ari getting an attack of conscious is pretty funny, and I guess this goes a long way to explain Lloyd's loyalty.

    The two women they meet at the dog run are total twits. I realize that Drama and Turtle don't really have standards other than "hot", but still. I love that Turtle finally can't take it anymore and goes off on the chick. He was right about her being stupid throwing meet between two Rotts, I mean seriously! I also like that Turtle likes his dog more than he wants to get laid.

    I'm not as pleased with the Amanda storyline. Vince can be a royal pain in the butt about things. I didn't like them dodging her calls and giving her the run around. However, it plays true to character, so hey, whatever. Still a great episode, part of what makes the characters believable is that they are kind of pains a lot of the time.moreless
  • Not the best, but better than some other shows

    I still like this episode, even though it wasn't a great one, at least it was better than some horrible shows that are on the air. Nothing really going on with the story, I actually forgot what movie they are tryin' to get, and it's just weird to see that Ari isn't tryin' to get Vince back anymore, it's almost like he just gave up. I thought that we'd be seein' a lot less of him, but it's cool that we still get to keep up what's goin' on with him. Of course, we're just waiting for that time when they get back together.moreless
  • Most disappointing Episode Yet

    Even though i feel this was the most disappointing episode in entourage's three seasons, it still had some moments when you realise how good the show actually is. Lloyd has to be the best employee at any company in LA, as who would seriously go throguh with what he did, if it wasn't for Ari's new found conscience then Lloyd was about to be abused. But there was too much with Eric and Sloane which is a storyline which is bareable at the best of moments. All in all, the episode simply is a filler episode and should be seen as nothing more.moreless
  • What was that all about?

    This is one of the episodes that made no sense at all!!! Drama & Turtle are too busy trying to get some that it makes them look pathetic, not to mention the place where they are trying to get it' the dog park?? I understand there are many beautiful women in LA, but a DOG PARK, come on?

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Drama: True dog people know that a Rott's tough exterior is merely a protective shell that hides a wealth of sensitivity they have within.

    • Ari: Let me get back to you on that, David. My assistant's about to be gang-raped by a gang of one.

    • Ari's Wife: Tomorrow's a new day, Ari. Remember... you always have a chance to get it back.
      Ari: We're Jews, baby. No, we don't.

    • Eric: You guys should have groomed yourselves.
      Drama: Please, E, in certain cultures it's illegal to look this good.
      Eric: You're a regular fucking felony, Drama

    • Ari: Lloyd, Calm Down. It sounds like you're having multiples for Christ's sakes.

    • Drama: Fucking Arnold. I got blue balls so bad, my dick feels like it's gonna break off.

    • Drama: Lhasa Apsos are very finicky dogs. And finicky dogs have finicky owners. And finicky owners wait two weeks before they even give you a tug.

    • Turtle: All right. What do you say we start with little miss fluffy-white-poodle over there?
      Drama: That's not a poodle, turtle. That's a Lhasa Apso.
      Turtle: Whatever. Check out the ass on the broad walking it.

    • (on going for a 'date' with a gay writer)

    • Drama: Turtle, you reek of desperation.
      Turte: How much longer can we stay here?

      Turtle: I always have to earn it.

    • Ari: Remind me never to get on your bad side, Lloyd.
      Lloyd: Ari Gold, you could never.

    • Ari: We may be whores at my agency, but we ain't pimps.

    • Ari: He's never had a straight agent. If I'm going to be his first, I have to show him I'm a friend to the gay man.
      Lloyd: But, your not a friend to the gay man, Ari.
      Ari: Lloyd, this is the big one. So just go grab your best dress and know that today your love of cock is a huge asset to this company.

    • Ari: Sacrifice, Lloyd! Like the kamikaze pilots used to do.
