  • Simply Hilarious!

    I really laughed at this episode and was surprised about how much conflict Jay has in his heart about picking between two women. It was a really funny and heartwarming episode and possibly one of the funniest.

    I mean come on what can be funnier than Jay being kicked out onto the balcony of his apartment while Jeremy talks to Ilivia and a guy taking a picture of him, all entrances blocked off and rain just starting all of a sudden and then him loosing his clothes - I cracked up so hard! Then the twist on the joke when Jeremy gets out on the balcony and all of a sudden two birds come and land on his arms, the sun comes out and two girls are out there all of a sudden, hilarious! Plus the jokes about Saturday Night Live or as this show has it Yesterday Night Live, LOL! Oh and I like the La Queen Latifa jokes, they were great, not to mention Franklyn's lines - Brilliant!

    A great episode all in all!moreless

      Phone Call: (replaced by Jay's alarm clock radio) "The following is a test of Faye Dunaway's vocal cords. We repeat: this is only a test."


    • Name: Olivia Newton-Hawke
      The name of Jeremy's sister is a nod to famous Australian actress/singer Olivia Newton-John, who is probably best known for her role as Sandy in the 1978 film version of Grease, and her pop song from the '80s, "Physical".

    • Jay: I hate Qantas.
      This is an allusion to a Qantas Airways ad campaign featuring a koala delivering the above line in response to Qantas bringing tourists to his home.

    • Olivia: (sings) I come from the land down under...
      She is singing Man at Work's hit single "Down Under". This song is also referenced a moment later when Jeremy arrives looking for his sister and Jay offers him a vegemite sandwich.

    • Episode Title: "Lady Hawke"
