My friend and I watched the ep twice last night and didn't notice the Crazy Doggz poster. Guess I'll have to watch it again. :)

I still don't know what's in the bag J puts on the pillow.

We looked at the guy in the cell and decided he was probably sitting on a toilet but not using the toilet coz we didn't notice his pants down. Have to check that again.

There was a lady at the restaurant who I thought was trying to pinch Jemaine while he was dancing but she was only dancing in her seat. It would have been funnier if she was trying to pinch his rump.

Re: Jemaine's pole dance my friend said he looked like a monkey hanging on a pole. :lol: I didn't think he was half bad. I've got to look up the lyrics coz I can't make out a lot of them but every time Bret sings something about checking your resume for any other skills the like typing part cracks me up.

I thought Mel was SO fantastic and Murray too as usual.

I thought Jemaine looked pretty good too... I can't do that... :eh: :macarena:

And while the typing bit is brilliant, I like the part where Bret tells Jemaine not to bring people home because he has a roommate. Something about that makes me :roll2: everytime...

I think she meant a gorilla hanging on a pole coz monkeys would hang quite natually on a pole and swing around with ease & she was trying to make a point of how unnatural he looked.

I've never tried to dance on a pole but it looks like it would involve impressive upper body strength, which I lack, but as evidenced by Jemaine in his mesh top he's got that goin' on. :waggle:

I like the bit about going to work with his work tool. :lol:

I loved how through most of the song Jemaine was in a red light and Bret in a regular one. And each time they showed him in the red light room I bust out laughing.

This thread is getting NSFW with all the sugarlump closeups. They had a blurb about this ep in the Grub Street blog on New York Magazine, http://nymag.com/daily/food/2009/01/yea ... _lump.html
And now, we celebrate Chinese New Year with a clip from Sunday's episode of Flight of the Conchords. You may have noticed Bret and Jemaine played a gig at 169 Bar; their video for "Sugar Lumps" was filmed at Wing Shoon Seafood Restaurant next door, which boasts a sizable dim-sum selection that includes, er, "beef balls." The Kiwis also tried their luck as gigolos outside the tiny dumpling joint that's a few blocks west on East Broadway. Happy New Year!

NSFW indeed! I had to do some speed scrolling past that close-up of the goods. :lol:

Regarding Sugalumps...how can you *not* love a song that contains the words "kerfluffle" (however it's spelled :lol: ) and "tomfoolery" :clap: :oops:

That's also Arj, Nancy :nod: but don't worry..you're not the first one to miss that :wink: I loved Arj's rap..he really knows his way around rapping..I read somewhere he does it professionaly? I wonder if Steve has something to do with that :lol:

I ADORED this episode..It's a wet Jemainiac's dream :drool: 'nuf said!

Mel was absolutely brilliant! ..and I loved the songs too.. :jc: well done, guys! :clap:


The guy with the glasses was Arj??? He looked like the Asian who danced last year in Boom. I guess I'll have to have my eyeglasses looked at!! :rolleyes:

Ok, I just watched it again. This show has some seriously funny scenes. But come on everybody, Eugene was so brilliantly creepy, wasn't he!?!

Jemaine- "Isn't that my flyer from the lobby?"
Eugene- "Yes- I didn't have a copy."

Hell, the shifty eyes and avoidance of how he knows so much, how uncomfortable Jemaine gets in the elevator. Great scene.

I was so relieved to see all of the positive response that this episode is getting here. My husband was NOT laughing at all and I felt a little like a "john" watching it!! Needless to say, I watched it when I got home--hubby's not home yet. Laughed out loud with no guilt. Rewound "sugar lumps" to catch the hilarious lines, oh, about 8 times!! LOVE IT :supz:

I love the way Brits and Kiwis say con-domes.

So, they actually made money with the Nigerian, Mr. Saladu? Lols.

Not having seen Midnight Cowboy myself, but I'm guessing this episode is a takeoff on that w/o the dire ending. Both are bad at prostituting and wear western inspired clothing.

A good summary of the plot of Midnight Cowboy, with naive stud Joe Buck and sickly con artist Ratso Rizzo:
