Trivia

The ending to the joke told throughout the episode ("How do you think I rang the doorbell?") belongs to this: A woman, tired of living alone, decides to put an ad in the local paper. She asks for three things: 1. A man who will treat her nicely, 2. A man who won't leave her, and 3. A man who is good in bed. Several weeks go buy without a result, and the woman is resigned to life without a man who can embody those qualities. Then, the doorbell rings and she opens it to find an armless, legless man in a wheelchair. He says, "I'm here about the ad in the paper. As you can see, I have no arms, so I can't beat you, and I have no legs, so I can't run away from you." The woman is skeptical, and asks, "Yeah, but are you good in bed?" The man answers, "How do you think I rang the doorbell?" See more »

One of the best episodes ye

One of the best episodes yet, if not the best yet.

There was plenty of hilarity. The Geek's storyline was brilliant. Sam learned about sex, watched Daniel's porno and became uncomfortable around sex. Fredrcks eventually told him that those movies are mostly fake which comforted Sam greatly.

I liked Neil's part of the story, he'd be a porn star if he could.

The Freak's storyline was about cheating. Daniel -- the handsome devil that he is convinced Lindsay to help him cheat by playing the old 'poor me, everyone thought I was dumb' tape. Lindsay fell for it but teacher Kowchevski didn't.

Once Daniel was forced to prove his innocence he blew it. So to save his ass again, he told the same old story which led Lindsay to realize how stupid she had been for believing him. She cracked up and couldn't stop laughing.

FOUR stars for this episode, we got to know Daniel a little better.
