  • Dave gets a white noise machine to calm him down and Max upgrades his radio personality. "That's my favorite cricket!"

    Wow! This episode is so funny! This episode made me laugh all the way through! Jon Lovitz was very funny in this episode, and he worked well with the cast throughout this season. But I think the funniest person in this episode goes to Dave. His storyline is that Joe gets him a white noise machine to lower his high blood pressure, and Dave becomes so relaxed that he's obsessed with it. The way Dave is relaxed is so hilarious. In the other storyline, Max makes the "Today In History" segment more interesting. Anyway, I highly recommend this episode to anyone that likes to laugh.moreless
