I love how ridiculous it got towards the end as even Stan pointed a gun at Kyle. "You couldn't just go home, could ya, Kyle?" And then there was Kyle's escalating incredulity as Dubya explained stuff after killing the guy.
The "I have a clue thing" surprisingly never got old for me. Kyle constantly saying "Really?" when the President was explaining things made me laugh. I don't think this was as good as last weeks, but still a pretty good episode.
Lisa: Poor predicatble Bart, always picks rock Bart: Good ole rock, nothing beats that
Kyle's "Really?" with the tilted head like a confused dog killed me every time. But the Hardly Boys ruled. Almost Terrance and Phillip ruled. The Hardly Boys need to make return appearances like the goth kids and the Raisins girls do.
"I got a clue." "I got such a raging clue." "My clue's pointing left." "Ooh! Let's follow that clue!"
The Hardly Boys was so totally random -- what prompted them to goof on the Hardy Boys books all of a sudden? -- and hilarious. In fact, I insist Matt and Jeff Hardy take it as their new gimmick when they reunite. That'll get them totally over (with me).
The episode started with Rosie screaming. After several interminable seconds, we learn it's a flashback to a tickle fight with her brothers. The opening ends with her fading from the framed window of her house door.
