  • List's come and go but Brotherhood lasts forever.

    Randy gets a winning lottery ticket and makes his own list. Randy and Earl learn a lot about being brother's while teaching a couple of other brother's named Zeek and Arlo about being the same. Randy stole Earl's Andrew Dice Clay Belt Buckle a long time ago, and blamed it on Zeek, a friend of Earl's. They decide to make things up to them with Earl and Zeek becoming best friends again. Randy befriends Arlo while Earl and Zeek are buds again. Arlo tells Randy he wants a relationship with his brother Zeek just like he and Earl have. They devise a plan to make and make it happen.

    On the Joy and Darnell front, the keep getting relocated when Joy doesn't like where they are at and breaks their cover. Eventually she puts things together and realizes the FBI agents handling their case are having an affair. She threatens to out them unless She and Darnell get a good relocation assignment. In the end Joy always gets what she wants.

    In my opinion a great episode about brothers taking care of brothers and family taking care of family. Joy would not stop outing their identities until she got what she wanted for her family and turned to blackmail in the end.moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Randy: (removing covers from furniture) I think we should have left the plastic on, you know, so that we wouldn't have to get up to pee, like Mom and Dad did with my bed.
      Earl: Randy, they put the plastic on because you peed the bed, not so you could pee the bed.
      Randy: The chicken and the egg, Earl, the chicken and the egg.

    • Joy: I have told you. I want my name to be Goldie Crystal. I want to live somewhere with skyscrapers and cosmopolitans, and gay men who are your best friends. What is so hard about that?

    • Zeke: We don't click like you and Randy. You're like Venus and Serena Williams, you know.
      Earl: No, I know one of those is a planet but I don't know who that other dude is.

    • Joy: How'd y'all get here so fast?
      F.B.I. Woman: We keep close eye on things the first week.
      Joy: How close?
      F.B.I. Woman: Close enough to know you're wearing the same thong as yesterday, just turned inside out.

    • Earl: One time this pirate walks into a bar, he's got the ship steering wheel attached to the crotch of his pants.
      (Randy smiles)
      Earl: Bartender says, "Hey pirate, you got a steering wheel coming out of your pants," and the pirate nods and says, "Arr, it's drivin' me nuts."
      (Randy laughs)
      Randy: That one was actually funny!
      Earl: What do you mean, actually?

    • Earl: (To Randy) But you said you weren't jealous anymore.
      Randy: (To Arlo) I'm not jealous, I'm just sick of having to hang around this looser, BO factory, three balled jack ass form the state of Douchettussetts.
