Did You Know?


Michael Novotny: Think I'd look good with a new haircut? I think I would, do you?
Brian Kinney: What did have you in mind?
Michael Novotny: I don't know. Maybe buzz it all off or bleach it.
Brian Kinney: That'd be cool... for two years ago. So, what's wrong?
Michael Novotny: Nothings wrong. Why you think somethin' is wrong?
Brian Kinney: Because every time when somethings wrong you wanna change you're hair.
Michael Novotny: That is so not true!
[Deb comes up with the coffee]
Brian Kinney: [to Deb] Michael's thinking about changing his hair.

I love the direction this series is going!
27 December 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

"Well, I can't draw anymore. What's the point in wasting my time when I can be here popping pills and drinking beer, sticking my gimp hand down guys' pants?" ~Justin

I really love the direction that the series is headed directly after this episode, with Michael starting his own business with a comic store (thanks to a couple of amazing scenes and lots of encouragement from Brian) and Ted starting a porn business (I can't WAIT to see how that crap ends up for him!) It was also interesting to see Justin regain his courage to draw again in a somewhat different way, as motivated by Brian. It really is true that Brian loves him; the very first thing he thinks about when he sees the new high-tech drawing device is Justin and only Justin. Debbie is also touching in her sincerity in almost every single sequence. I can't wait to see the next episode, as this one was just thrilling, touching, and hilarious.
