"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.



I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you?

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.

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.

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.

A few thoughts: - Big Mike is the designated backstage hug machine. He does an admirable job. - Every week I feel like Siobhan is actually getting away with what Nick Mitchell was hoping to do last season.
