  • This is a war between Shirts and Skins, boys and girls, men and women. The women defense the woman who shot her boss after she was fired because she woul´dn´t sleep with him. The men defense the (of course..) male boss.moreless

    In this episode David gets fired twice, and why wouldn´t he? If I was his boss, I had probably fired him in every episode, almost. He uses some unorthodox methods to find the dirt on the woman they are up against, and Maddie finds out after breaking in to his office. But to Dave, anything that is thoughtprovoking, challenging, stimulating and infuriating is fun.



    The last 10 minutes of this episode makes it definitely worth watching. Maddie harrasses David, sort of, and then comes the bloopers from the 4th & 5th seasons.



    And then a quote:



    Maddie: She´s not some nutcase!

    David: Her middle name is Macadamia!moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Herbert is clean-shaven when his male co-workers catch him making out with Agnes in the closet, as well as when they take him back to the office to lecture him. However, when David enters in the midst of the lecture, Herbert turns to face him and suddenly has his usual amount of stubble. (If this was supposed to be intentional--some joke about how fast his beard grows--it was a little too subtle to work.)

    • David has been talking to the receptionist at the mental hospital for less than a minute when the alarm sounds because Herbert and a patient are fighting. The dispute is apparently over a ping pong game, which Herbert claims to have won 15-13. For that to be true, each point would have taken an average of two seconds. That is not possible.
