Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Adam and Jennifer have a visitor, Toby who is Amish. Russell takes him under his wing and shows him New York. Audrey has a misunderstanding with co-workers who now think she is pregnant. Jeff thinks everyone is congratulating him on his prowess.moreless

    One of the better episodes of the season. Great one-liners. Everyone is sitting around talking about Adam's hippy parents and how they are always sending some real winners to visit Adam and Jennifer. Adam walks in and announces that this is Toby, he's Amish. "Jackpot!" Russell calls him "Quaker Oats" and agrees reluctantly to show him around New York.

    Audrey has a really obnoxious co-worker who is pregnant and she is getting forced to do all her work. One of Audrey's other co-workers misinterprets something Audrey says and they all assume she's pregnant too. Getting her out of all that extra work and her own!

    Of course she and Jeff have been trying to get pregnant so now she has even more incentive. So she walks into the house, Jeff has his beer, his chili, and the game, but sex trumps them all so he's into the bedroom in a flash. Afterwords when she continues to act amorous he says, "I think I can rally, but twice only!" The next day he comes to her office all peppy because he is happy with his performance and when everyone congratulates him he thinks it because of the "two times" because he doesn't know everyone thinks Audrey is pregnant. He is so proud he manages to get the subject into every conversation he has much to Audrey's chagrin. Meanwhile Russell is totally corrupting Toby. The funny thing is in the end Toby returns to his home claiming no one could lead such a worthless life (like Russell's?) and thanks Russell for showing him how he is not really missing anything.

    I must admit I saw the way Audrey's tale of pregnancy was going. The other workers immediately assume when she tells them she is not pregnant that she lost the baby. They feel sorry for her and tell her to go home and relax for a few days. Which she happily does.

    Thanks for reading...moreless
  • Russell,...Amish Russell...

    Though we witnessed a typical Rules episode with all the chic one-liners and stuff, I couldn't help notice a character change in Jeff.

    Pat Warburton looked like a goofy 18 year old telling everyone he got laid. Though, we did see a similar thing in the super-sperm episode, this was really different. Russell play his usual manwhore role. Here, he tries to mentor an Amish dude, who has never experience the big city life. The closing sequence was legendary. Adam and Jen still continue to give us some really lackluster performances. The only joke that Jen tries to make is about the phone call from Tobi's parents. Honestly, I didn't find that funny at all.

    Nice episode. Jeff and Russell save the day.moreless
  • Twice.

    Another great episode of Rules of Engagement tonight. I really hope this show gets brought back for another year as one can argue that it has been CBS' best comedy lately.

    Tonight we had some classic David Spade as he showed an Amish teen the way of big city life, thinking he was enjoying it, only for said teenager to think he was trying to keep him living his own lifestyle.

    I am not sure why they felt the need to add all these Audrey at work scenes either. Not that they're horrible, but when a show starts incorporating a random new office you know they're kind of low on ideas.moreless
