    This episode was probably the worst so far of the season. Season 4 of Weeds is far from Emmy-worthy, but this was even a step down from what they've been putting on recently. Nancy wasn't even funny in this episode.



    We've officially reached filler-land in Weeds. It's clear that the show is going slowly and hopefully there will be a major action-packed ending to the year. Unfortunately we have to sit and wait and just hope that comes true. Kevin Nealon was on in this episode and we can hope him moving in leads to more screen-time.



    I will give them credit for one thing though. Pretty much every comedy pokes fun at the Jewish faith, it's almost mandatory, but never have I seen a show mock the Shiva. So hats off for that, but come on Weeds writing staff, you're better than this.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: The Hebrew letter over 'DAY FIVE' is supposed to be 'Hé' (ה), the fifth letter in the Hebrew alphabet (its numerical value is 5). Instead, the letter shown is 'Het' (ח), the eighth letter (numerical value: 8). Both letters look similar, except that the upper left corner of 'Hé' is open.

    • The letters over the title cards 'DAY TWO', 'DAY THREE', etc in the day titles, are Hebrew letters, which represnt numerical values (like all hebrew letters). For instance, the letter over 'DAY TWO' is the second letter in the hebrew alphabet and represents the number 2, and so on.

    • 'Shiva' is Hebrew for 'seven'. In Jewish tradition, the grieving family (1st degree) sits in the house for seven days, starting right after the burial of their late loved one. During the 'Shiva', people come to console them.
      The mourners are not allowed to eat their own food in the first meal after the burial, so their friends and neighbours provide food for them.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Lenny: Listen, genocide can happen again if we're not vigilant. It must never happen again.
      Shane: It has happened again.
      Lenny: What are you talking about?
      Shane: Genocide. In Rwanda, Cambodia, Bosnia.
      Lenny: No, no. To Jews. It must never happen again to Jews. What do I give a shit about the other places.

    • (Nancy steps into Andy's smoky van)
      Nancy: Sorry, I hate to interrupt this think tank. Andy I need your help.
      Andy: I'm toasted.
      Nancy: That's okay, there's no math involved.

    • (About the marijuana he gave them)
      Silas: So what do you guys think?
      Andy: Awesome.
      Doug: Legendary.
      Andy: I can't feel my left...anything.

    • Andy: Are we gonna die tonight?
      Nancy: Probably not.
      Andy: Still, we could. Let's say thoughtful things about each other.
      Nancy: You're a good person. You've really stepped up for the kids. You make me laugh. I'm glad you're part of the family.
      Andy: I miss Yael.
      Nancy: Thank you, Andy. That's very sweet.

    • (Lenny lights a candle)
      Shane: Isn't that a fire hazard?
      Lenny: It's on a dish.
      Shane: What if there's an earthquake?
      Lenny: Well, I think the odds are in your favor that the two houses you live in won't burn down... although your mother is a wild card.

    • Shane: I want to stay. I'm not leaving.
      Len: Fine. It'll add to the value of the house. Three bedrooms, two baths, and a little boy. I can sell it to a priest.

    • Guillermo: I had to smother a guy with a pillow once, too. My arms got tired. You?
      Nancy: Not so much. It was Tempur Pedic. Conformed to her face.
