It's Pops McKenzie. There is a pic out there of Bret & daddy being photographed together on the street during a break in filming.Spumony5000 wrote:Wow nice catch. I didn't even notice him in the background. I'm going to look for him when I watch this tomorrow.

Goldfish are very cheap, especially the non-fancy version Bret was buying.
Bret's unstoppable animal jumper buying would be more of a problem, I reckon!
I was thinking back to the $2.79 cup that bankrupted them. Although if they really were broke, I suppose they could eat the fish later on... you know, dip them in honey...

Also, I don't think the term "budget bears" will ever cease to crack me up. Where do they come up with this stuff?
True dat. With the exception of Sally, all their chicas on the show have been pretty in a "real" way as opposed to a Hollywood way. Sarah Wynter who played Keitha is actually bordering on model-esque good looks (if you see her with makeup at premieres - whoa!) but it was totally downplayed on the show and that rocks.Jilly wrote:I'd also like to give a big shout out to the casting gods of FOTC. THANK YOU so much for casting regular looking women as Bret and Jemaine's love interests, or potential love interests. Why is it that loser sitcom guys almost always date gorgeous models (or part-time models, as the case may be)? I don't mean to slight any of the wonderful, lovely actors who have been on the show, I just think it's awesome that Bret and Jemaine aren't dating, say, Jennifer Aniston.

About the first song: Bad Atom, I agree with you -- it really did feel like a season 1 song.
And Nancy, when you mentioned Piano Man/Billy Joel, did you mean the overall feel of the song, or was there a specific Billy Joel reference that you caught? Because as soon as I heard the song, it totally gave me a Billy Joel troubadour vibe, but I can't put my finger on why. (I love 1970s Billy Joel!)
