Quotes

Officer West: Sir, we've got a report of a kid being kicked on the street by a group of adults.
Bret: Yes, that was me.
Officer West: They said it was a group of adults.
Bret: Umm... that was my gang.
Officer West: OK, so why'd you kick the boy?
Bret: Umm... well, I guess that was gang related.
Officer West: Well, in the future I suggest that you don't kick children. We'll let this go because we don't like that particular kid, but we've got our eyes on you.

Two movie parodies for the price of one!
27 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This show is always a hoot. Low-key and deadpan, it is wonderfully anti-sitcom. Great original songs as well. This episode is probably my favorite. The show had already done a number of homage/parodies, but here they give us two brilliant examples.

West Side Story has been sent up many times, but don't let that stop your enjoyment here. What they do with it is hysterical!

The best moment, though, has got to be what they do to the self- serious pomp that is Magnolia. No, no the frog sequence, but the Aimee Mann/Wise Up bit. The parody is set to a song called Hurt Feelings and, as in the movie it references, everyone in the cast gets in on the fun. They even switch the cinematography to match the look of Magnolia. So funny. I loved it, hope P.T. Anderson does, too:-)

(p.s. I'm a sucker for a parody/homage - The David Bowie episode from season 1 is my second favorite of the series. Check it out)
