There has to be a catch if Malory invites the ISIS drones to a dinner party at her home. Malory wants the U.N. contract from stuffy Torvald Utne, the guest of honour. Everyone but Archer shows up with a date, including sensual "Carina," squired by Woodhouse. Malory claims his "hoors" pilfer her medicine cabinet. The ISIS crew repels Utne. Luckily Archer has time to hit an ATM machine so he can go back to Malory's with a blonde bag of eye candy. Malory has murderous Huns in her kitchen; nobody expects "The Needle." Archer goes for the baby aspirin, ends up talking to Tiny Man, and wonders if Malory switched the aspirin for LSD. It all turns into a team-building project. If Longpig is the alternative, remaining dinner guests are happy to help a neighbor redecorate. It's win-lose-lose: just ask Trudy Beekman! Written by LA-Lawyer

Getting the Contract
17 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mallory must convince Utne to give ISIS a big contract. She decides to throw a big dinner party, but he is a total ass. Behind the scenes are some killers who are set to kill the guy. A Swedish chef and his nineteen year old assistant who wants a baby by him. Then there are the Russians who are setting everything up, including sending a sexy blonde to kill everyone. Archer bumbles around, his feelings hurt. There is a medicine cabinet with all kinds of mislabeled poisons as well as calcium pills. The conclusion is hilarious if you can overlook violent death and find it funny. Continuous outrageous plot lines abound. And then there are more references to Johnny Bench for some reason.
