Ellen wrote:“Something Special For The Ladies” - This was great. “Mostly Scottish and quarter Italian” - Jemaine worked this in for Tracy.
Ellen wrote:Tracy’s grief when she identifies with “Frumpy Lady”. And Kipper’s “she makes a real effort.” I thought Nina Conti did a great job with voice inflection for her character. It must have been challenging to create a slightly scary but essentially harmless fan character without crossing over to disturbingly psychotic fan character in an attempt at humor.

Ellen wrote:Brian’s allegations that the Finn Brothers are into freaky fan/band stuff, and Bret’s shocked “that’s illegal.” Great line.
Kate wrote:I have to agree with Sherry. This was my least favorite episode of the bunch. I found the threesome bit a little too something, but haven't got the word to express it.
Kate wrote:I'm not going to dwell on this any longer because I found it not a very pleasant storyline, actually. I felt the wife character was demeaned by the husband character, and so on. So, that's that.
Kate wrote:What I did find very funny was the part about the cat wearing specs and looking like his namesake. And the whole bull storyline was blessedly funny, too, but more on that later.
Kate wrote:I won't say what I think about Jemaine singing anything in French, even non-sensical French of "Fudafafa". Sherry says no swooning, and so it shall be. "Le Baguette" will forever have a new meaning for me. Enough said.
Kate wrote:This part: "'We're only two men ladies' Its, 'Were only two men comma ladies'", made me laugh out loud. The fact, as Sherry said, he felt the need to clarify that just underscored brilliantly the feeling that he remained fragile from that dinner with Kipper and the Mrs.
Kate wrote:The whole Neil Finn thread woven through these episodes is brilliant. He does nothing even subtley funny, but makes me laugh nonetheless, just from the sheer absurdity of it.
Kate wrote:The bull and the tavern bit was very funny, as well. The Brian and Trevor relationship is just so hysterical.
Kate wrote:And, finally, as someone to whom computers are a constant nemisis, I have to take a moment to say a special thank-you to Sherry for persevering on, even after the computer did in her first draft. I really appreciate the effort these write-ups take, and enjoy them so much that even though, as I said, this was not my favorite episode, this write-up is excellent, and helped me remember the good stuff about it. You deserve a gold star, woman! And, one of those friend-hugs!
Andria wrote:And a big huge fat thanks for the sound clips for the bull segments! Woot!
Andria wrote:My favorite exchange from the whole series is in Part Three. The exchange between Brian and Trevor is hysterical. The way that you don’t actually hear what Trevor is saying, you are left to imagine the other end of the dialogue, is reminiscent of classic movies. Some things are more amusing when left to the imagination. Each person can place their own thoughts into the silence and tailor the scene to them specifically. Brian actually shows some ‘manly’ anger. “Remember what happened last year?”
“We’re going to sell the meat in a raffle!” Who comes up with these lines? Kudos to Brian, erm, Rhys.
Andria wrote:I find it hilarious that all the innuendo has to be explained to Bret during the fan dinner. Jemaine’s embarrassed explanations are squirmy, indeed. I find myself trying to imagine how the logs in the fire were arranged. I can’t picture it…
Andria wrote:While Part Three isn’t my favorite, I love all of Brian’s Bits – so it does still get points for that. Hopefully that wasn’t too ramble-y. I was really trying to be succinct!
