Great thread:)

I just watched episode 11 (S01) again the other day, the one with the fake record deal. In scene where the guys reveal to Murray that the deal was fake you can actually see Bret crack a smile. It is during the speech where Murray calls them jesters in the courtyard of the king :D

I have noticed that part as well, biscuit! It's hilarious! Because Bret is not usually the one breaking character *looks in Jem's direction*

Yeah, well, I guess there might be a reason why we can hardly see any of J at all in that scene :wink:

But to be honest I don't find it as easy as some of you to spot where J is loosing it.

His face lightens. Usually his character has this permanent scowl on his face and never even cracks a smile. When he's losing it his face and lips loosen up.

Then the one in the last episode of season 2 when, after the play, Murray is telling Jemaine that his acting is "still a bit boring." Priceless!

And I might be imagining this, but in S1-3 when Jem belts into the "what's the real cost" segment of Think About It, Bret turns toward Jemaine and has a smile and then looks back the other way.

:lol: I didn't notice that the last time I watched it but it was quite obvious now that I knew what to look for. Hilarious :lol:

I don't often notice them first (or third...) time round, but that one stood out to me like a sore thumb the first time I watched the episode. You can actually see him choking back laughter :lol:
Definitely one of my favorite bits in one of my favorite episodes :D
It's all about the music.

At the end of 'The Tough Brets' when Jemaine and Mel are showing the painting around town during the credits, Jemaine's smiling, like all the way through.
You're so beautiful...

I'm not sure if this is me reading too much into it but at the beginning of the Yoko episode, when Murray is mad they don't want to go on the interesting building tour and then tells them to enjoy their dates (or in Jemaine's case, his pretend date), Bret looks like he's trying not to laugh. Then when Murray walks off and he's like "Are you going to say Bye?" and then Murray says no, Bret looks like he's still trying not to laugh.

I wondered when I first saw this if those were just normal people walking around and Jemaine was truly embarassed. Kristen is having a blast, you can tell. Imagine walking around NYC at night and running into THAT just by chance! :roll2:

:o

What about The Tough Bret's dance number?

Or Jem's ridiculous cuteness throughout?
