-The talk about the tv stations makes me laugh because no where I stayed had cable, so with only three channels to choose from, you didn't have a lot of options. But I think that even with cable, the most channels you got were like 25-30. NZ had just started getting Comedy Central there right before I left and that was a big deal. lol

-It's looks like Bret's just jumping around in the background to keep warm. They look so flippin' cold during that song.

-"Two man gang. Can you have that, David?"
"That's a pretty small gang. Technically, the smallest gang possible."

-The whole "He may be dead. He maybe did what?" conversation cracks me up every time.

-"I wouldn't have done it if I knew you were going to hassle me about it." Sounds like something I would say. lol

-I like to watch Jemaine because he tends to break and want to laugh a lot. Noticed a new one during the scene with John and Bret and those two girls at the bar when John says "I guess I'm somewhat to blame as well."

-I'm always amused that they are just standing there talking when John is mugging the old lady and then when he comes over, he has that lady's purse in his hand.

No real reason for this one, I just thought Bret looked cute here. Cute and cold. :)

Image
I don't know why Bret thought he needed a new cup. There's like 10 of them on the night stand.

Image
Lately, I've had a weird fascination with the buttons on Jemaine's shirts. Well, more like the lack of them. :wink:

Image
I don't know why I'm just now noticing that Dave shot Murray with his paintball gun. :lol:

Faith, I noticed the paintball smudge on Murray, too! LOL!

He should have had a heavier jacket on. That suit wasn't going to keep him warm. At least the other two have on layers.

At a couple of different times in the alley scene, you can see a handkerchief/wad of cotton in Dave's left hand. The paintball gun apparently froze to Arj Barker's hand in that scene, and I'm assuming he has the cloth there to prevent that.

I honestly don't know how poor Bret did that scene in just a shirt and vest. That kind of cold makes me crazy.

I also saw Jemaine holding his side and grimacing a couple of times while he and Bret were running from the muggers. I think he looked and sounded the sickest in this episode. He was very pale and clammy during the prison cell scenes.

Mel's strip search/gang rape conversation always, always cracks me up. :)

Faith, I noticed all the cups too - maybe they'd already sold them? :lol:

I always wondered why Jemaine was wearing a cast on his arm. I mean, he must have been hurt in the mugging, but I just don't get it. :hrm: :lol:
Oh, and Murray saying, "One of my CDs is missing," cracks me up.

During the "band meeting" in Murray's car, Murray tells Jemaine that they said he didn't need the sling. "one of my CDs is missing." is a great line. :)

I agree with all that's been said here. This is truly one of the best episodes in Conchords history :roll2:
