"Michael Bluth had just been stunned to discover that a contract his company was counting on was being cut back."

"You initially told us to design and build 22 homes and now you say 18. That doesn't give us enough capital to complete the job. I mean, we've already got the blueprints drawn up and everything."

"Well, that part wasn't true, but they would've!"

And at the end, the company survives with only 18 houses! KNOCK ON WOOD~~~~!

Another great episode. Stiller was hilarious in his guest role.

GOB: "My middle finger and index finger..."

Doctor: "Switched! First time ever!"

*interns applaud*

Tonight's episode was freaking gold. There isn't another comedy on TV that even touches this show.

So snarky, so delicious, so cathartic. Also, the swat at Family Guy and their intrusive ads.

"This kid's got moves."

I knew it was coming. I felt it. I SAW IT COMING.

And I stil laughed my ass off.

Was that Dan Castellaneta as the Doctor?

I'm really starting to get into this show, but is it just me or did anyone else hear a lot of lines that were noticeably dubbed in in post?

I don't know why, but I could really hear them standout with that show.

Otherwise, it was an awesome show.

And yes, that was Castellaneta as the doc.

Recently watched the first season in a weekend and it only furthers my growing love for this show.

for me, best line was Gob's:

You've got to love Michael allowing the original doctor to complete his whole sentence this time. What awesome continuity!

I also thought Ben Stiller as Tony Wonder was a perfect casting choice. I really hope he comes back for other guest shots.

Yes it was. And *THE* best part of the episode was when he was talking to Michael about one of the many mistakes he had made and he very un-emotionally and quietly said "d'oh".

This show is too good for words. The gags stay sharp on repeated viewings, and I swear I always catch a new thing.

I was watching the Maggie Lizer 2 parter from a few weeks back. I caught "Skip Church's" on a Sunday morning the first time, but is was only this (3rd) time through that I caught the name of the Chinese place where Barry eats on Friday nights. Miss Temple's. Genius.

This is the only show that would make me want to buy a Ford Escape or eat at Burger King.

This is also the only show on TV whose writers I really wouldn't want to piss off. Re-watching this week's episode, I realized how bitter the barbs at FOX were when you heard them without the effect of surprise or initial shock. I mean, I got them the first time; it's just that they seemed less acidic then.

Anyway, I can't remember where I was reading it, but supposedly the Burger King and Ford Escape jokes were both writer backlashes against network "notes." Supposedly, they were encouraged to include more products in the shows (I'm guessing as inducement for better ad deals in the future: e.g. "Hey, [company], our show already mentioned you on the air twice!"), so the writers did so in the most obvious manner possible. This tradition supposedly goes back to "Pier Pressure" from the first season. Apparently, FOX wanted a family friendly "very special episode," where Michael taught George-Michael a valuable lesson. Suddenly you have J. Walter Weatherman, arms falling off and a whole lesson about not teaching lessons.

Of course, I can't corroborate any of this, mainly because I'm lazy. (Maybe someone else can. Justin, I'm looking at you, here.) But it's nice to think that the writing staff isn't afraid to call stupidity and tackiness on the carpet and absolutely refuses to take orders. Though if the show is canceled and never again appears on TV, I wonder how good I'll feel about that.

The teaching lessons stemming from network notes is now legendary; I hadn't heard that the oh so subtle product placement jokes had directly stemmed from notes as well but that makes delightful sense. I *do* remember that the original title for the episode Motherboy XXX was "Tendercrisp Chicken Comedy Half-Hour," which just rules the schools.
