At one point, when the camera pans back from Francine in a series of pictures, the final shot is an aerial view of Langley showing 3 treble staffs of six measures among the streets (possibly the music for the American Dad theme). See more »


Stan Smith: Oh, you're off the hook, Steve. I know you never bought into the whole Nicaraguans-Russians-and-Cubans-invading-Colorado thing. Besides, I've got Barry now. I don't need you... per se.
Steve Smith: You don't need me?
Stan Smith: Per se, Steve. Geez, doesn't anyone appreciate Latin anymore?

The One With Evil Barry...
3 August 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's so funny. It's definitely one of my all-time favorite episodes from this season.

In this episode, one of Steve's best friend's, Barry, becomes close with Stan, and Stan tells him that he doesn't need his medication. After being off it for a while, Barry. decides to replace Steve as his favorite. Or just replace him in general. It's so funny what happens.

Newspaper headline: "American Dad" Releases DVD, Small Girl From Basement.

Best part of the episode: Barry's evil voice.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
