That is a horrible name for a penis....
11 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Two Finger Rule" is one of my favorite episodes.

This is partly due to the scene where the four(later five) guys are in the living room talking about sex. Michael Clarke Duncan's character had me in tears with "Mr. Roundtree"

The Alan character was great to, especially in the same scene.

The singing thing at the end was great too. Jake didn't appear much in this episodes, neither did Berta, but even if their appearances were small they were really funny. Great acting, great script, great episode. I highly recommend seeing this episode. It was truly a masterpiece. Even if you think the show jumped the shark, I still think you should watch the episode.
