  • Still trying to get Vince in Smoke Jumpers...

    Classic episode. Actually progressed forward with the plot and accomplished something. The gang is hanging out the entire time and Drama busting on Turtle reminds you of the older episodes where they all ripped on each other. Very funny from start to finish. Ari has some of his classic lines mainly yelling at lloyd and finally something goes right for the guys. Lately every time something good seemed to be happening for the crew at the end of the episode some call would come in or some decision made and it would be another "oh sh*t" moment would happen and vince is back at the bottom. Not this time. It ended on a high note, and we can all only hope that its finally getting better and think about what good is coming.moreless
  • This episode has you clinging on, waiting to hear what is in store for each and every character, until the pivotal moment when Ari states his intentions about his new job. Love itmoreless

    Episodes such as this are exactly why i watch the show.

    First Class Jerk revolved around everyone making key decisions in their lives, and the fact about making wrong ones.

    Ari Chose to stay with MGA, Drama went around town blabbing about turtle getting jerked on the plane, Josh Weinstein screwed Vince into a lunch date and Dana Gordon gets Studio head, ie Vince gets the movie he wants for the price he wants

    This episode has you clinging on, waiting to hear what is in store for each and every character, until the pivotal moment when Ari states his intentions to stay with his clients. Love it

    Poor Turtle... im always backing him.

    Great Episode!moreless

    • When Ari is talking to his wife about the offer, she has the iPhone upside down for part of the conversation, which is corrected the next time we flash back to her.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Lloyd: What's wrong?
      Ari: Has so much cum squirt in those eyes you can't see what's right in front of your face? Amanda Daniels takes that job, Vince is fucked and I'm fucked. Which means we're all fucked. And we're fucked in the way you like to get fucked, not fucked in the way normal people like to get fucked.

    • (about Jamie-Lynn Sigler & Turtle)
      Ari: Oh yeah yeah, I'm sure she's got a fetish for guys who are built like a South Park character.

    • (Lloyd walks out of Ari's office after scolding him)
      Ari: You throw a lot of jew guilt for a chinaman!

    • Lloyd: I've been putting your calls through for three years now and I haven't interrupted or given my opinion. Even when I know I can stear your twisted mind into greener pastures. But I can't keep my mouth shut anymore!
      Ari: That's because it's filled with
      Lloyd: Shut it Ari!
