At UC Irvine Things get steamy when George-Michael finds himself in a love triangle with his best friend Ray and his girlfriend Becky.  (George Michael)

 

 

  • lol George Michael and his punctual wood block.
  • Tracey is that red-haired girl from everything!
  • George Michael with his porn stache from Spain and neverending references to matador pants and late dinner times.
  • "Todo mio.  Mia?  Mio."  GENDERED NOUNS ARE SO ANNOYING!  (Also it depends on whether you refer to it as habitación or cuarto.  So could be either.)
  • Haa... Harris/heiress makes sense now
  • "You were in the remake of Dangerous Cousins!  I signed up to Netflix because of that movie!"

I was really happy to finally get a glimpse of Tracy. It wasn't much, but that was one of the main things I was hoping to see so I'm glad they included it.

It made total sense that Tammi Littlenut/Maria Thayer was the original Tracy; I wish she had had a bit more screen time and Isla a little less. That Tammi Littlenut is in everything!

 

Loved that GM made the woman cry by telling her she was a bad mother, and having The League's Sophia play her was pitch perfect.

George Michael's overt sexuality and flat out puttin the moves on Maeby kinda creeped me out.  Along with that shadow of a moustache.

That scene between Michael, George Michael, and Maeby mid episode will go down as The Narrator's finest hour ("After all he wondered: Wouldn't this be the action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants?"). Also, it's cool that Ron Howard actually gets credited as The Narrator in this new incarnation.

  • George Michael's version of the credits have wood block in the mix.
  • The sign that George Michael knocks down in the stair car saying "Your future starts now" was used somewhere else, but I can't quite remember where... "George Michael" is just taped on on brown paper.
  • Gob's segway that was gifted to George Michael has a sticker on it that says "state evidence"
  • In Spain George Michael is watching the (unfortunately awful) show that Mitch, Jason, and Will did, about the teachers (Sit down, shut up... I had to something it to remember the name.  Man, I wanted to like that show so much but I just couldn't... But I digress)
  • George Michael's chicken sounds like "block block" apparently... and it's hard to do in matador pants.
  • George Michael would not recommend putting all of his Anns in that (being a Harris/inharrising money) basket.
  • They're shooting a thing at Maeby's house.  "Actually, they were just clubbing a Thing." Ha.

Fun fact: George Michael's pregnant Spanish lover uses "coger" to mean "fuck," but I'm fairly sure that meaning of "coger" is only used in the Americas.  (I may have just looked that up in my Spanish dictionary.  It says vulgar Am. which I think supports my understanding of it.)  (for the record, "joder" is probably the word you're looking for.  ...There are no kids on this forum, right?)

Does everyone else know about this already? It's too perfecto.

 

"George Maharis Arrested in Men's Room", Gay Scene, December 1974: "Famous Hollywood actor George Maharis was arrested November 21 and charged with committing a sex act with a hairdresser in the men's room of a gas station in Los Angeles... He was booked on a sex perversion charge along with Perfecto Telles, 33, the hairdresser, and released on $500 bail, according to police."

David Henrie. He's an actor on Wizards of Waverly Place. There were alot of references to childrens shows on this season. I think Mitch having  young daughters and watching those shows with them has definitely seeped into this season.

"Make me cry!"

"You're a terrible mother."

 

Very funny episode.  Cera does rock the Zuckerberg look.

Probably my favorite show currently airing<br />The Office - nowhere near where it once was, but still alright<br />Modern Family - good stuff!<br /><br />New shows this year I'm still watching (have dumped a few):<br /><br />Walking Dead - great stuff!<br />No Ordinary Family - mediocre<br />The Event - Reading the recaps and board comments is immensely more entertaining than the show, so I watch!<br />Raising Hope - awesome!<br />Running Wilde - good! (will they ever burn off the remaining eps?)<br />The Cape - started out awesome, starting to fizzle<br /><br />RIP:<br /><br />Pushing Daisies - possibly the greatest show of all time<br />Lost - lackluster resolution to most mysteries, but still a monumental show<br />24 - downward spiral the last couple years, but once again, still a monumental show

This was my favorite episode thus far.  I was laughing out loud in many instances; I"m sure I can't remember them all.  Loved the tag with Zuckercorn as well.  He is still my favorite extra character.

 

The scenes of George Michael tutoring Maeby while going back and forth between tutoring and hitting on her also had me in stitches.  GM does the straight-man/awkward so well.

Thank you! I was wondering what that said. So why was Gob's segway in a criminal investigation?

This episode is still one of my favorites of the new episodes (except for the BabyTok bit).

 

Even after a year in Spain, and the events of Marta Complex, the Bluth boys don't know how to speak Spanish ("Ciao fathero,"  "adios brothiero").

 

Also enjoyed GM's Almodóvar (Átame!) poster in his dorm.  Ha, oh study abroad.

 

On the gas station news when GM is pumping, John Beard is described as a "Former non-fuel anchor"

 

On GM's dorm room door white board: "Missed me!  Leave a note!"
