The One Where Stan Is Outsmarted...
8 September 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode. It's quite funny.

In this episode, Stan goes to get a new car, and is constantly outsmarted by the salesman. He's not as good as a negotiator as he thought, and because of this, he loses his confidence, and even gets suspended from the CIA. Meanwhile, Roger, and Steve set up their own drive-in in their backyard, because they think girls will only make out with them in cars. And we see the continuation of the Golden Turd storyline.

Newspaper Headline: "Despondent Pluto drowns two of its moons"

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
