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'.

Everything's Better in Canada

Episode 414 "Well, you've been to enough heterosexual suicide pacts to know this is a wedding cake!" ~Brian

This was a spectacular finish to all of the drama of season four, a season that I was expecting to dislike but ended up intensely loving. It had so much going for it and very little holding it back—Brian's journey to the finish line with Michael was touching indeed and Gale Harold's acting was beyond superb. Even after two seasons, I'm still in love with the Rage storyline completely. I really hope that the movie gets successfully made because it sounds awesome! Ted and Emmett also had several more amazing (and hilarious) bonding moments, especially the scene where Emmett goes out of his way to make Ted's "birthday" just as fantastic as possible. The renaming of the Liberty House was a fitting end, as was the amazing (and much-needed) ending scene between Ben and Michael set to Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. Overall another spectacular season finale, but I prefer the other ones.
