    I loved the I Can't Play the Piano skit in the beginning!

    It was a very fresh way to begin the episode. The one after

    was confusing and gave me a puzzled look on my face of what's going on. I also liked the good use of the cops sketches

    in this episode too. I wasn't that into the ones with Tony Baldwinin them though. I think that the last two sketches I should mention are the Freak and Liposuction ones.

    The Freak one was funny because it showed Bruce, Kevin, and Dave (my three favorite members) for most of the time, and it was original. This is like the Liposuction one but this one had a song with it instead!moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In the "Celebrity" sketch, you can see the road blocks barring off the road they use for for the male hookers. It's only shadows and a partial reflection of the orange baracades, but you can see them.

    • In the "Celebrity" sketch, you can see the camera man in Scott's reflective glasses.

    • In the "Freak" sketch, you can see the orange tube in Kevin's hand that he used to squirt the fake blood on his face.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Nosebleeder: (while taking his lunch break at the freak show, some kids try to pressure him into performing) Look kids, I don't have to impress anyone anymore. Oh sure, when I was young and I was desperate to make friends, I'd nosebleed at the drop of a hat. But now I accept myself for what I am: a 30-ish bachelor whose interests include model airplanes and pottery, and whose nosebleeding. And if you can't accept that, then I'm afraid your friendship isn't needed here.
      Kids: Friendship?!? (giggling) Who wants to be YOUR friend? You're a FREAK!
      Nosebleeder: Piss off! Just piss off!

    • Gordon: (blaming his wife for why he got fired) That lunch you packed me, it was so horrible, made me wig out. I went crazy! I went all wiggy, Fran!
      Fran: Jeez...(defensively) It was a perfectly good lunch.
      Gordon: Soup in a bag, Fran? SOUP IN A BAG?!? A man works all morning, and he's subjected to SOUP in a BAG?

    • Bruce: Hello. (Pause) Very nice duck.
      Mark: Thanks. (Pause)
      Bruce: Hold it! How's a guy afford a nice duck like that on a cop's salary? (Pause)
      Mark: Found it.
