  • Oscar tries computer dating. After filling out his application Oscar is matched with Felix's ex wife Gloria.

    Oh man this one is near genuis. Perhaps one of my favorite ones. Watching Felix get upset when Oscar says he is above average is hysterical. Felix quickly remarks, "What is your definition of average? The Wolf Man." I get a kick out of this all the time. Felix gets further enraged when Oscar is then paired up with Felix's ex wife Gloria.
