    This is in no way like any other episode of Birdman, but it's still hilarious! More hilarious? If I had to choose between this episode and the entire series, I'd still choose the series. But this episode beats out, that first thing I said about! Yes, it sure does.



    I will enjoy this episode again, right now!



    Screw Flanders! Screw Flanders!
  • Brilliant. The best employee orientation video ever made. Not only is it a totally different stab at characters we've come to love, but it's peppered with past characters and references ("chairs are for earners"). Gotta love a deeper look into series fmoreless

    SUMMARY: Brilliant. The best employee orientation video ever made. Not only is it a totally different stab at characters we've come to love, but it's peppered with past characters and references ("chairs are for earners"). Gotta love a deeper look into series favorite Stephen Colbert's character.



    ....the summary was all I had to say. Watch it.



    Ha HA! It.

    • Phil Ken Sebben: (performing "Hamlet") To die, to sleep; To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub...Ha ha, rub! For in that sleep of death what dreams may come...must give us pause...make us bear those...uh, I've forgotten. Huh...I know I'm depressed about something. Uh-ba-da-da...mother: dead...no, father dead, mother alive, kind of a sexy thing with the mom, uncle: probably killed my father, girlfriend: crazy as a loon, her father's a chatterbox, I killed him...ah, this is all too complicated.

    • Phil Ken Sebben: I told you to leave ten minutes ago! You know what? Get out of here, you're fired!

      Phil Ken Sebben: No really, you're fired. Leave. Ha ha haa! Right to work state.

    • Peanut: Hi, I'm Peanut. You can be butter, and, oh gosh, I guess you'll be jelly... and, this is just off the top of my head, how about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, what do you say?
      Narrator: *WRONG* The correct way is...
      Peanut: Hi, I'm Peanut. You can be butter, and, oh gosh, I guess you'll be jelly... and, this is just off the top of my head, how about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, what do you say?
      Narrator: *RIGHT* The difference? This time, he's unplugged the security camera in the corner, which means there's no evidence of this encounter.

    • Harvey: So I'll just put my savings in this diversified index fund. Safe and sound.
      Phil Ken Sebben: It's 1985, Birdman, wake up! The smart money is going into S&L's... like that one!
      Harvey: You mean Lincoln Savings & Loans?
      Phil Ken Sebben: Right, S&L's are unkillable. Ever seen It's a Wonderful Life? Even that Bailey bastard couldn't screw it up! ...And the rest on gift certificates!

    • Narrator: But no matter what we do, it all comes down to company's one mission statement: Putting clients first by putting employees first, immediately after prioritizing fiscal responsibility and leveraging profitability toward exceeding by empowering our employees to put clients (and themselves) first, in a diverse and respectful environment of only those that come first, first.

    • Narrator: Sebben & Sebben is one of the most successful law firms in the country. But Sebben & Sebben is so much more. More potent and powerful... and frightening.

    • Phil Ken Sebben: Oh hello, I didn't see you there! I was too busy counting money, sometimes I stay up 13, 14 hours a day and I still can't keep up. Ever get a paper cut from a $7,000 bill? Doesn't tickle. But that's not for you to worry about! No, you're just an ordinary employee who will never be burdened with huge sums of money!

    • In the Alabama Air National Guard photograph, there are 17 men, with one seat left vacant, between Busg F.V. and Busi H.X. If you change 3 of the letters up or 3 of the letters down, you get Bush G.W., or possibly George W. Bush. George was in the Texas Air National Guard, but he never saw duty in Vietnam because of George Sr's political influence. :., he's not defusing bombs with Phil and company.
