Oh definitely. I love the way Jemaine says that part! It's a pleasure watching the Carol Brown video. It's great knowing that Michel Gondry directed that episode too. It's my favourite episode of the second season so far :)

From the latest episode:

Murray: *Opening drawer, producing tub of gel * Look at this. Style. That's what we need. I know what you're going to say -
Jemaine: Oh-aaaahm
Murray: I knew you were going to say that.

Jemaine: Go away Murray...

Bret: Did you finish the gel on your body hair?
Jemaine: N-no! Have you been gelling your beard? Your beard looks good!
Bret: You used my half of the gel!
Jemaine: What are you doing?! What are you doing, put it down! OH! That was very dangerous! How dare you throw this at me!
Bret: You do not throw that at me.
Jemaine: I think its a fitting revenge for you throwing it at me.
Bret: Woh! That was dangerous.

Okay, so they're not actual lines, but the terms "cheap zoo" and "budget bears" need a place in the Conchordian Quotable Lexicon.

That conversation cracks me up so much! I absoloutely love it

Then when Mel walks into their apartment and Bret says..
"Jemaine! Jemaine, she said she had mousse"

Also this-
B: Jemaine, I've glued my head to my hand
J: You idiot Bret!
B: You got a pillow on your head
J: What where?
B: Other side
J: Oh! Where both idiots!
B: Idiot, man.
FIVE MINUTES LATER...
Murray: What are you sitting there so relaxed for Bret?

I'm laughing even reading it back to myself.
Dwight, you ignorant slut!

Just a few from the recent episodes:

Jemaine: So we look like some Simon and Garfunkel look alikes.. who don't look like Simon and Garfunkel?
Murray: Exactly!

Bret: Is there a New Zealand government gun?
Murray: Yes, but the army's got that.

Jemaine: Dave, I'm going on a date with a woman tonight.
Dave: Gonna bang her?
Jemaine: She didn't mention it.. She mentioned dinner.

Bret: Why are you wearing your Art Garfunkel costume?
Jemaine: I dunno. She just prefers me to wear it. (Long pause) It's not weird. (Awkward silence) Yeah, it's weird.
Bret: I didn't say it was weird.
Jemaine: Yeah, but it is. It is weird.
Dave: It is really weird.
Jemaine: Dave's right.
Dave: But it's also the coolest f**king thing I've ever heard in my whole life.
Jemaine: Thank you.

Brian: Bret, what can you bring?
Bret: I can make a half a dozen croutons.
Brian: Half a dozen? Do you think you could go higher than half a dozen?
Bret: 900?
Murray: They'd be very small.
Brian: 900? I think that'd be too many. Try and split the difference. Try to come down from 900 but up from 6 or 7.
Bret: I could probably make 15 croutons, if you'd like.
Brian: Excellent!

Bret: Good morning, Jemaine. Your hair doesn't look cool.
Jemaine: What?! Why didn't you tell me earlier?

Jemaine: What if he's keeping the gel for himself.. to make himself look good.
Bret: Don't think so, man.
Jemaine: That big.. ginger head of his.. looking great.

J: Seems like an odd time for Jazzercize.
B: Yeah, it's an impromptu Jazzercize class.
J: Doing it by yourself?
B: Me and a couple of the guys.
J: Just you and a couple of guys from Jazzercize, huh? Getting together and doing some impromptu Jazzercize.. at night?

Brahbrah: I don't remember you having a beard yesterday.
Jemaine: Sometimes I grow a beard.
Brahbrah: It looks like it's glued on.
Jemaine: Yes, and sometimes I glue one on.. when I'm pressed for time.

Sooo many. So so so so many great lines.

One that really seems to stick with me though is Murray's "okay, well let's not get bogged down in AIDS"
:shock: :lol:

I also love that so many great lines are almost thrown away, in that they're said quietly, or spoken over with no "that was a joke" pause for laughter. You have to be quick (or watch several times :wink: ) to catch them. The two that really spring to mind were both Bret's:
"on foot?" when talking to Brahbrah about the escapee
and "don't touch anything" right at the end of the doctors waiting room scene

:lol: :lol: :lol:
It's all about the music.

I love, love, love this exchange:

Dave - "Man, you guys seem a little cooler than usual today."
Bret - "Yeah, we're a little bit cooler now."
Dave - "Usually you wear clothes from the 70s.
Jemaine - "They're not from the 70s. They're from New Zealand."
Dave - "Isn't that the same thing?"
Jemaine - "They're similar, I s'pose."

Favorite parts from "Wingmen":

Bret: I've got a girlfriend.
Dave: No.
Bret: Well, no not completely a girlfriend. She doesn't know I exist.
Dave: But you do, you do exist don't you?
Bret: Yeah, I exist.
Dave: But you guys said you didn't exist before.
Bret and Jemaine: Yeah, we exist.
Dave: Then why'd you tell me you were from Never Never Land?
Bret and Jemaine: New Zealand.
Dave: But you said you guys flew here.
Jemaine: On a plane. On a plane, Dave.


Dave: Women like three things: men in kilts, Southern Comfort, and Chris Isaak's Wicked Game.
Bret: He does know more than you.
Jemaine: I think you're oversimplifying women.

Jemaine: Where does she work, this girl?
Bret: She works down at the cheap zoo.
Jemaine: The pet store?

From "Unnatural Love":

Well, of course the whole scene between Bret and Jemaine at the beginning which has already been mentioned and when Bret and Murray meet Keitha and she says she sounds like Marilyn Monroe and Murray's like "Yeah, I suppose, if you squint your ears." :lol:

Before they sing Too Many Dicks, Dave says, "Too many dicks!" Bret says,"What's that man?"
Then the part that slays me is the way Jemaine says "How many?" :roll2:

I always die when Bret sees the lipstick on Jem's face at the doctor and tells him that he's got crabs. That whole exchange is priceless :roll2:

Or when Murray and Bret keep asking him if Jemaine has his wallet at the band meeting and he goes "Yes, I have my wallet." Then they cut to him asking Keitha if she has his wallet.

Tough Brets episode - during the band meeting where Murray mentions there were many complaints when the guys played a gig at the library:

B: Its so hard to play there, everyone wants us to be quiet
J: Shushing us constantly
M: They're trying to read!
B: Well, we might as well not be there if we're not gonna make any sound
M: You can make sound....just make it so people can't hear you


New Zealand Town episode - Murray just finishes discussing how hair gel can make the guys look 'cool' and not just them thinking they're 'cool' in their minds. Then the Prime Minister walks in and asks about a cool band to play at New Zealand Town.

B: Would you like us to play?
PM: Well no, we're looking for a cool band
M: They are available
J: We're considered quite cool, aren't we?
M: In their minds....yes

Murray is such a scene stealer sometimes, he is incredibly funny. Actually the whole New Zealand Town episode should be quoted, it was hilarious and one of my favorites from season 2. :nod:
Oh, it was always "Bowie's bumped into a door..."

That is the most amazing bit from probably my favorite episode.

As is the hug scene: "I'm not participating in this hug."
