  • Anger

    The Good:

    -Ryan picks up a copy of 'The Exorcist' from his bed at the beginning of "Anger."

    -Kristen and Ryan reach a point of reconciliation.

    -"Wilfred" spoofs 'Ghost.'
  • Anger

    Anger was a superb episode of Wilfred and I really enjoyed watching because there was the usual great amount of humor, a good story, and some background about Ryan's past and a dog he used to have. Ryan gets dragged into helping his sister who is throwing a party for her boss. Wilfred causes all sorts of trouble and does things a dog like him would do in a situation like that. Wilfred channeled a dog from the past, it was kinda creepy and hard to tell if it was for real, or if he was messing with Ryan, but what is real to Ryan? This is a great question and I look forward to finding out what happens next on Wilfred!!!!!!!moreless

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Wilfred: Anger is like Herpes, you're not meant to keep it to yourself.

    • Ryan: Bitched out by Kristen. What a great way to start the day.

    • Wilfred: Ryan, remember when I told you a few weeks ago that you are a total pussy? Well, I just want to apologize for not emphasizing that enough.

    • Ryan: She didn't treat you that well, either. Which was surprising, because I thought everyone loves Wilfred.
      Wilfred: Everyone does-- except her, because she's not human. Cold black heart, dead eyes. Nice tits.

    • Wilfred: Keeping another dog on the side, are you?
      Ryan: Sneakers was my dog 20 years ago.
      Wilfred: 20 years, 20 minutes-- it makes no difference to me, Ryan. You know I have no concept of time.

    • Wilfred: Snuggled up against you licking your ear? What, in the same bed? Where did you meet this budgie smuggler, a Maroon 5 concert?

    • Wilfred: I've got it. It wasn't a homo chip. It was a glowing orb of gayness, brought here by aliens that you summoned, because...
      Ryan: Stop. You know what I think? It's pretty coincidental that you suddenly start acting like my old dog Sneakers.
      Wilfred: What? You think I'm acting?
      Ryan: You tell me.
      Wilfred: Ryan, dogs are very empathic creatures. In fact, some cultures, the Hindus for example, they believe that we dogs can help the living communicate with the dead.
      Ryan: Are you saying that the ghost of my dead dog is trying to possess your body?
      Wilfred: Dude, can you blame him?
      Ryan: The glowing orb of gayness is more believable than that.

    • Wilfred: All right, I've been thinking it over and I know what happened last night. After I went to sleep, you somehow managed to get some kind of homo chip planted in my brain
      Ryan: You caught me. Let's go to the vet and get that removed.
      Wilfred: No, no vets. That won't be necessary.
      Ryan: Wow, miraculous recovery.
