  • About six months ago i was... abducted by Aliens

    Ever heard the expression 'i fell out of my seat from laughter' well i'm proud to say that I indeed 'fell out of my seat from Laughter'. It was an episode that didn't rely on an original storyline but still made it hilariously funny. 'Phil Patterson... the sane choice' I laughed at the joke long before he said it. The episode sets a great mood for its audience right from the start. I enjoyed the Parody of those who appear in political announcements and martin played it very well. I loved that he felt the need to show him ass to Seattle.



    A hilarious episode recommended to all.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Life at KACL: This episode sticks to the established continuity as Bulldog prepares to do his show immediately after Frasier's.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Patterson: Together, we can live the dream.
      Frasier: Phil Patterson... (with a pained expression on his face) the sane choice.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Scene One Title: ANDY WARHOL SAID IT BEST

      This title refers to the statement made by Warhol in 1968 and reiterated in 1979 that "In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes". In this instance, it refers, of course, to Martin's brief period of celebrity as a TV supporter of congressional candidate Holden Thorpe.

    • Scene Six Title: THE FAULT LIES NOT IN OUR STARS, BUT IN OURSELVES

      This title borrows a line from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar (spoken by Cassius): "The fault, dear Brutus, lies not in our stars, but in ourselves".

    • Scene Four Title: Citizen Crane

      This, of course, parodies the 1941 Orson Welles classic Citizen Kane.

    • Episode Title: The Candidate

      The episode title shares the same name as the 1972 film The Candidate.
