  • This was my first acting job. It was cool working with Kevin Nealon and Mary-Louise for the first time. I didn't smoke any weed all day because I was treating the job with respect, but as soon as I got home...I smoked a bowl.moreless

    10
    Kevin Nealon asked me, "How is it going?" knowing it was my first day.



    I said, "Alright, I guess." Then I shared with him something more, "I am just trying to pretend everything is happening for real and that the cameras are not there."



    Kevin looked right at me. Put his hand on my shoulder and with a straight face, "That is called acting my friend...why don't you just keep it up."



    Then he walked away. That was the sage advice I received from the master of the subliminal.



    I just got word that my character is going to be appearing in the second episode of season two. I can't say any more than that this year is going to be funnier than last year.moreless
  • very good episode.

    9.2
    Now that we have got the intro to the characters, Weeds really gets into the comedy factor. This episode was very funny, but sad at the same time. Shane missing his father was really heartbreaking. When he shot the lion because thats what his father would have done. Celia and Isabels little fued was very funny this episode. All she wants is for her daughter to be thin, which you can see it comes from the inside. But she goes about it all the wrong way. I liked though when her husband was calling it karma for what she did to her daughter. I kinda feel bad for the woman but at the same time really hate her. Thats what is so good about the writers. This episode was really great, and it is just getting better.moreless
  • This is probably one of the best episodes of the first series, there is so many little comical pieces spread throughout this episode, the tricks that parents play on kids and vice versa.moreless

    9.7
    What we find is that Nancy's clientele, looks like it is diminshing rapidly after she finds that Doug has got himself a medical marajuna card, that he can go down into town twice a day and buy upto 8 ounces per visit, and Doug can't wait to tell all of his poker buddies, obviously this would mean less customers for Nancy, who has to go and see this place for herself.



    In the meantime, Celia has her younger daughter on the bathroom scales for her weekly weigh-in, and is appalled at the result, she is adamant that she will lose some weight. The next night she is telling her husband that she found her daughters chocolate supply and that she substituted her chocolate for laxatives. Which was not very nice at all, especially after she had a bowel accident at school in front of her whole class. But hearing that her mum had done that, she decides to switch her moms sleeping tablets with immonium tablets to bung her up - this was absolutely classic.



    Nancy goes back to her dealer, after a trip to this medicinal weeds clinic, and with her head full of weed type information, especially the cooking weed angle. Their is some witty banter between them all which I do like to watch time and time again.



    Nancy prepares alot of weed snacks and takes them to the poker night, for Doug and his buddies, then when Doug says that he will probably just buy all his needs from the medicinal weeds clinic. Nancy's comeback is an absolute classic, as she explains, that with her, they don't need to fight the traffic into town, have a risk of things happening, not to mention having the state have a copy of your drivers license in order to get a medical card !!!



    That sells them all for Nancy's business for sure.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In "Previously on Weeds", when Shane says: 'You don't have any money in your checking account?', he is asking a question. In "Free Goat" he makes it a statement.

    • On Craig X's "big board" the crew has substituted the names of some of the episodes from this season for some of Today's Specials.

      "Free Goat" (second episode)
      "Fashion of the Christ" (fourth episode)
      "Lude Awakening" (fifth episode)
      "Dead in the Nethers" (sixth episode)

      "Punishment Light" (eighth episode)

    • To get back at her Mother, Isabella empties her Mother's bottle of TrimSpa X32 and replaces it with Imodium AD.

      TrimSpa X32 is a popular diet pill that claims to prolong the amount of time food can be digested and thus not convert into fat.

      Imodium AD is an over the counter medication that relieves the symptoms of diarrhea. However, since Celia doesn't have diarrhea, she becomes severely constipated instead.

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Celia: (Walking into Nancy's House) You really should lock your front door.
      Nancy: I do lock it. But Lupita leaves it open so she doesn't have to dig for her keys. Drives me insane.
      Celia: Their subtle revenge for having to clean our toilets.

    • Doug ( to Nancy): Me no needy no more weedy.

    • Craig X: Second, we've got the "Here's Johnny", the King of late night. You don't wanna be messing with this stuff until the sun goes down. It'll knock you out.

    • Craig X: You hear that dial tone? That's my clones, they're off the hook.

    • Nancy: Let me rephrase. You sold me bullshit. Skankweed. And I can't move it and I want a refund.
      Heylia: And I want an ass like Beyoncé's. Ain't neither of us gettin' what we want.

    • Conrad: You got enough THC in those (popcorn) balls to keep Steve wonderin'.

    • Nancy: Thanks for talking me through this.
      Conrad: You know what? It gives me a real sense of accomplishment working with over-privileged white women.

    • Conrad: How YOU doin'?
      Nancy: Me? If this doesn't work out, I could end up being the oldest Gap employee in Southern California.

    • Nancy: (reading Celia's flyer) "What To Do If You Meet A Mountain Lion." Give the mountain lion some room. Don't make eye contact. Talk to the mountain lion softly. You sure this isn't "What To Do If You Date A Mountain Lion?"

    • Nancy: But most of all, I don't Xerox your license and put it in a State controlled databank.
      Doug: What? I'm in a databank?
      Nancy: You sure are. So when your wives find out and divorce you, they'll get custody of your children because their overpriced attorneys will be able to prove you're nothing but a bunch of irresponsible pot heads who can't be trusted.
      Doug: I'm in a databank?
      Dean: Celia would have a field day with that.
      Doug: I'm in a databank?
      (Nancy nods)
      Doug: I-I-I'm up for Council re-election, I can't be linked to any pot clubs. Any of you guys know any good hackers?

    • Lupita: Your butta don't look right.
      Nancy: It's sage.
      Lupita: Don't smell like sage.
      Nancy: Obviously your menopause has affected your sense of smell.
      Lupita: I don't a smell with my couchie.

    • Heylia: (To Conrad) You gave away my cornbread recipe? And she put weed in it?! You don't put weed in my cornbread!!

    • (After finding out that Celia tricked Isabelle into eating laxatives.)
      Dean: I hope our children survive you!

    • Celia (whining): Have you ever had sex with a woman?
      Nancy: None of your business.
      Celia: Oh come on, tell me...
      Nancy: OK, I slept with a woman in college once.
      Celia: How was it?
      Nancy: Boring.
      Celia: Well maybe you didn't do it right.
      Nancy: She said it was the best she'd ever had.
      Celia: What are you doing Friday night?

    • Doug (in the medical marijuana store): Hey, any more Stephen Hawking? I wanna be wheeled out of here.

    • Heylia (talking to Nancy): Serious shit calls for serious cash. And your cash got a sense of humor.

    • (Isabelle is standing on a scale.)
      Celia: You've been sneaking food…
      Isabelle: No I haven't, I swear.
      Celia: Then congratulations, you must be pregnant.

  • ALLUSIONS (18)

    • Vaneeta: Yeah we got the Blue Mystic and the White Widow, but ummm, you gonna have to wait on the O.G. Kush. That **** sold out quick.

      Vaneeta is talking about call brands for various strains of marijuana. Blue Mystic is a mostly Indica blend which has soft blue hues and is related to the White Widow. White Widow is a 75% Sativa 25% Indica hybrid and is considered by many to be the best cannabis in the world due to their high levels of THC. O.G. Kush is a mostly Indica strain which originated in Los Angeles and has become a very popular over the past year.

    • Heylia: And I want an ass like Beyonce's. Ain't neither of us gettin' what we want.

In the last few years, Beyonce is also an actress staring in such films as "Carmen", "Goldmember" and a remake of "The Pink Panther".

    • Craig X: It's an indica-sativa blend. The flavor is bellissima.

      There are two major families of marijuana, Indica and Sativa. These families can also be grown as a hybrid, merging the two families. Indicas originated in Afghanistan, Morroco and Tibet and are short, thick plants with broad dark green leaves. Their taste range from skunk to fruity sweet and provide more of a body high. Sativas originated in Mexico, Columbia and Southeast Asia. They look the exact opposite of Indicas, with tall, thin plants with slender leaves and appear in lighter green colors. Their taste range from earthy to fruity and provide more of a head high.

    • Nancy: I went to this place, this store and it was like the Whole Foods of pot.

      Whole Foods Market is the world's largest retailer of natural and organic foods, which was started in 1980 in Austin, Texas.

    • Heylia: Ha Ha! We got ourselves a regular Pablo Escobar up in here. Heh heh heh.

      Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria was a Colombian drug lord who came to fame in the 1980's smuggling cocaine into the United States. When he was at the zenith of his empire, Forbes magazine estimated Pablo to be the seventh-richest man in the world, with his Cartel controlling 80% of the world's cocaine market ($25 billion annually). In addition to being known for being rich, he is most infamous for being very ambitious and very brutally ruthless.

    • Silas: Oh yeah, Deaf Megan can do that. Dennis Kling says that like, her mouth, is like a Dirt Devil.

      Dirt Devil is a brand of handheld vacuum cleaners sold by the Royal Appliance Company. By saying that Megan's mouth is like a Dirt Devil, he's commenting on how good she supposedly is.

    • Silas' Friend: Daredevil? No, he's blind not deaf and I don't think he sucks dick at all. He's a superhero.

      Daredevil is a comic book hero created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett and published by Marvel Comics. Originally created in 1964, renowned writer Frank Miller brought new life into the series by revising the concept of Daredevil in the mid-1980's. In 2003, Warner Brothers released a movie based on Frank Miller's vision, staring Ben Affleck as Daredevil.

    • Conrad: You got enough THC in those balls to keep Steve wonderin'.

      THC the common name for Tetrahydrocannabinol, which is main psychoactive substance in marijuana. In other words, it's the main active ingredient that makes you high.

    • Nancy: Me? If this doesn't work out, I could end up being the oldest Gap employee in Southern California.

    • Vaneeta: Surprise the shit out of me girl. I thought for sure you'd end up broke. Livin' in a trailer park, having to score SAG cards for your kids to put food on the table.

      SAG stands for Screen Actor's Guild, which is a union for actors. For most work in Hollywood, you must be a member of SAG and thus have a SAG Card. One of the only industries where children are allowed to work is in film and television.

    • Silas: (Written in graffiti on a wall) I'm sorry. PS: my maid thinks I f***** a Smurf.

      Smurfs are popular animated characters that are all blue in color. They were created in 1958, but didn't become hugely popular in the United States until the early 1980's when Hanna & Barbera created a cartoon show for NBC, which is still being aired in approximately 30 countries.

    • Doug: (In the medical marijuana store) Hey, any more Stephen Hawking? I want to be wheeled out of here.

      This is in reference to Dr. Stephen Hawking, a theoretical physicist who needs a wheel chair to move around because he suffers from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) (or "Lou Gehrig's disease"). A disease which kills nerve cells in the upper spinal cord, and therefore they cannot carry signals from the brain to the muscles of the body; which causes total paralysis.

    • Craig X: Second, we've got the "Here's Johnny", the King of late night. You don't wanna be messing with this stuff until the sun goes down. It'll knock you out.

      This is in reference to "The Tonight Show" where co-host Ed McMahon would announce "Heeeeeere's Johnny!," to introduce the show's host, Johnny Carson.

    • Doug: It's like Amsterdam, only better because you don't have to visit the Anne Frank house and pretend to be all sad and stuff. This is in reference to The Anne Frank House; the former hiding place, where Anne Frank wrote her diary, which is now a well-known museum located in Amsterdam.
