HBO Flight of the Conchords Show - Season Two- Ep 9

Postby Whambi » Mon Mar 16, 2009 3:41 am

Nice to finally see Bret shirtless and sticky.....yum!

I liked the mugger from Season One making a reappearance and saying that he doesn't do pro-bono work!

I can't believe there is only one episode left.......say it isn't so FOTC!! :|
If I did I'd hold you tight into every single night & we'd fall asleep together & we'd wake up in the sunlight. Well, maybe I'm a dreamer, but, maybe one day you'll see, that dreams are......
......Yeah, yeah she gets it, stop cockblocking me!

I had a good time with this one, because of Petland Discounts!!!!

I didn't stop laughing once the sign hit the screen, but it's really an inside joke: When my ex had a club act back in the 70's, he and his partner did takeoffs on very bad local NYC tv ads, and one of them was for Petland Discounts! It was a hokey ad as I recall. I can't believe they're still in business, but for the guys to use it made me giggle.

Anyway, there were plenty of other laughable moments:

Bret's Billy Joel "Piano Man" tribute about his girl

The plethora of goldfish!

Jemaine's line about hitting on Bret's girlfriends, "do something everytime, all of a sudden you've got a reputation"

Dave thinking the guys were from Never, Never Land :roll2:

Murray's NZ poster: New Zealand Worth A Go

:( Murray throwing Greg under the bus :( (I felt so sorry for Greg, but it rolled off his back like water off a duck - I adore Greg!)

Jemaine after Murray tells them there was nothing to have a band meeting about : "You called us up and told us to come in to tell us there's no need to come in!?!?"

Bret and Mel in the garbage (do we think she's a pro at this? :wink: )
Doug in the dumpster!

Murray with Jemaine as wingman (apologizing to Greg - Jem supposed to keep the businessman busy with talk of the stock exchange, calculators)

So good to see John the Mugger from Season 1 again! The pro bono bit :rolls:


Jemaine with the glasses "You look like the Hamburglar!"

After getting maced, Jemaine's crying and wailing :roll2: :rolls: :bounce:

The Hug (Murray and Greg)

My mouth was wide open in "Freaky" when Bret went shirtless with Jemaine's honey and money! :P

All I can say is Awwwww - poor Bret, and awwww, only one show left :tears:
Oh, fish-like Lady
Lady-like Fish
I don't think so Bro, she's a Lady, Lady, Lady, Lady
No, no, she's a fish that's just a little bit
La-dy-ish! Yeah!

I liked the episode, but I thought Freaky, like Carol Brown, was way better live

I agree, TheFool, the best scenes of this episode are from the "cheap zoo" / petland

Brets codename = chicken torso

Bret in a kilt (self explanatory) :cheer:

Dave's advice = stand with your feet apart like your balls are on fire
Jemaine's reply = don't do the accompanying face though Bret, just the stance

saleslady = is that a walkie talkie on your kilt
Bret = it's an old iPod

I could watch that scene over and over.......Thank you HBO OnDemand

I loved this episode. I loved the song about his fake girlfriend. (I actually have a fake boyfriend! except he knows I exist and does not actually want to be my boyfriend :( ) Favorite line:"sounds a bit gay."
Can't make up my mind about freaky. I miss the freakiocity part, but the addition during the credits was amazing.
Oh, and I miss "rudimentary"! I loved rudimentary! It was my favorite word!

I can't actually talk about how much I love this episode yet. I've just been running around all morning with a ridiculous grinny face on. Oh, and eating toast with honey for breakfast. It's still too absurdly funny and loveable for me to too talk about, and really, all I can think about are Bret's hilarious honeyed nipples. So for now, I will practice superb psychological avoidance techniques and post this innocuous screencap:

Yes folks, that's a kiwi on the chalk-board. A KIWI! Image





Don't think about nipples don't think about nipples don't think about nipples.

I have to re-watch this one again. I got the feeling I did with "Love is A Weapon of Choice". Kind of confused at the end, but knowing there was tons and tons of good stuff in there.

I thought the first song was shot brilliantly, and was hilarious. Even my husband was laughing at Jemaine's dry asides. I am still on the bubble about "Freaky", whether it's live or filmed - it's just not one of my favorite songs of theirs.
"Women like three things - men in kilts, Southern Comfort, and Chris Isaak's Wicked Game."

Take out the SoCo and Dave pretty much has me pegged.
Yes, Dave is like a stopped clock. He is right two times a day. Mmmmmm. Kilts.

They've had an uneven track record with female actors this season - yay! to Karen the Garfunkler, Keitha the Australian, and Paula the "loser Kiwi" bureaucrat. But not excited about BrahBrah or the Petland clerk. Must be because I'm missing a Y chromosome or something.

I know that I will be on the floor when I rewatch it. I just know it.

ETA: Anyone catch that they used the fake last name Jemaine talked about in a magazine article? (think it was the Observer)
Jemaine Clemaine?

Ditto. I waited all season for that song to come up and it was like :que: Definately liked the live version better, but the video was :thumb: :thud: lol!

God, I loved this one so much. So many hilarious little bits, and Bret was just too darn cute. I thought Freaky was a little too slow for my tastes (I liked the live version better), but the bit over the credits was great! I LOVED the first song - have to watch it again to catch all the lyrics.

And oh, Dave. :roll2: I don't know why, but his "what the f**k does he know about women?" line made me laugh really hard. That pet store scene with them in the car was just priceless.

I cannot believe there's only one more left. This has gone by far too quickly!

"A new low", my least fave ep of either season. I laughed once - when Jemaine got maced. I don't feel like watching it again but I know I should coz there's a chance I may come away with a better opinion of it. :(

anyone notice the return of the white dog picture
and the missing radiator (between the beds) ?

i loved this episode, only because it was super bret-alicious.
nice red boxer-briefs, little B.

'freaky' has a great little hook, which has remained in my brain since last night.

jemaine clemaine as the hamburglar, priceless! his dancing
and whatnot during 'freaky' hilarious...always a scene stealer!
put this on (the oven mitt)

however, i thought the sidestory about murray, greg
and the sammiches was yawn-worthy.

still and always, to me at least, a funny, toe-tapping, 30 minutes of bliss.

Now I understand the honey references this morning, Neepje!

I knew I loved honey for a good reason ...

Love the "cheap zoo" bits. Brilliant!

Okay, I revise my opinion of Freaky - I just got it from iTunes, and this song is flipping hilarious. I'm going to be singing this all day now. :lol:
