Did You Know?


When Dennis is trying to convince the welfare case worker they deserve help, the pencil is in her hand, back to the desk and then back to her hand. The position is inconsistent. See more »


Mac: [looking for workers at the local welfare office] Well what about this guy. He looks big and strong
Charlie Kelly: Yeah but you're going to have trouble getting any work out of him.
Mac: Charlie!
Charlie Kelly: No, not cause he's black. Because it's like two in the afternoon and he's asleep in his chair.

Ridiculously Funny!!
20 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the first episode I've seen in this series and I am hooked. The idea that someone would become a crack head in order to receive welfare payments is absurd. These guys are really funny. They ask the drug dealer how much he "recomends for a first time user." When Mac explains the "Work for Welfare" program to Charlie and Frank, watch Charlie's reaction. "I don't understand--are you asking me a question?" There are so many little comments and subtleties that are hilarious. I am not ashamed to admit that I taped a few episodes and watched them a few times each. You pick up new things every time you watch. Very Funny! Great show. I hope they make a lot more episodes.
