Did You Know?


Justin leaves California in the morning (possibly sometime before noon) and therefore, would not be in Pittsburgh until sometime after 7 p.m. Since it is winter, he would not be back when the sun is up. He's also surprised that Brett was up when he comes into the kitchen. This would be early morning (possibly 8 or 9 a.m.) which would make the time in Pittsburgh either 11 or noon so he would never make it back to Pittsburgh before sunset. See more »


[Ted and Emmett are lost in the middle of nowhere]
Emmett Honeycutt: I think we should have taken a left at this little squiggle here.
Ted Schmidt: I thought you knew how to read a map!
Emmett Honeycutt: Of course I know how to read a map. You go down this road, make a left at 'Up Yours', then continue on about 3 miles to 'Go Fuck Yourself'.

Episode #4.14
12 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a wonderful season finale. I loved to see the scenes from the bike ride. And also to see Brian finishing it with Michael supporting him (and being the great friend he always is) while the others were waiting at the finish line. Was great to see him arrive in the night with all the snow and the rest cheering them up! Also some wonderful scenes between Ted and Emmett. Loved to see Emmett arranging the being sober birthday for Ted in the forest.

Was also great to see the marriage celebration of Ben and Michael, with cake and everything else Brian got. And the scene when Michael asks Ben if their marriage is real, is beautiful and emotional.

All in all this episode was great because one felt so many loving connections between the characters, whether it was friendship, marriage or moving in together.

The only sad thing is to see Lindsay and Mel separating. But I have a feeling they will be together anyways.
