Keith talks about a "Japanese horror flick they want Celeste to do the remake for". The reference is to The Grudge (2004), which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar. Michelle Trachtenberg, who plays Celeste, also played Gellar's (as title role) little sister Dawn in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997). See more »

Brenda: So how's it going with Olivier?
Margaret: He's a very passionate man. He's lot of fun if you don't take him too seriously. And he's completely supportive of my decision to have vaginal rejuvenating surgery.
Brenda: [disgusted] Awww, mom!
Margaret: Darling, I've had a couple of children. You expecially took your toll. I mean, c'mon, no one wants to fuck a glass of water, if you know what I'm saying.
Brenda: [puts away the glass of water she's drinking]

The episode so horrible and misguided it nearly kills the series
12 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is rare in episodic television that a single show can be so dreadful that it upsets the integrity of a whole series. This is the case with the despicable "That's My Dog," a tasteless, out-of-control descent into cheap, anything-for-a-shock sleazoid TV hell. It is hard to take the character of David seriously after the bloody nonsense that he's forced to go through here. And this ultra-violent, druggie psycho with a gun episode thinks it's so "revolutionary" that it even dispenses with the successful "Six Feet Under" paradigm: the complex multi-story, multi-character editing. Nearly everything we know about David is smashed in this episode... especially his identity as a super-vigilant funeral director who would never allow anything despicable to happen to a body in his care! The whole show played like some third rate slasher film. How did the producers who created this magnificent series allow this lurid episode to happen? What kind of hold did writer Scott Buck have over these normally elegant artists? Were they so desperate to shake things up that they unwittingly risked the ruination of the series? This episode is an outrage.
