Dennis Reynolds: If he starts giving me shit, I'll spit at him.
Mac: We should all spit.

Hidden meaning not really hidden
20 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

The allegory of this episode is simple but great : the show hadn't won a single award at that point, and the gang was refusing to add crappy romance and light dumb jokes to their show, even if it was the single best mean to win an award, as brilliantly mocked concurrent awarded shows usually proceed (we won't name names, showing mercy).

And they would rather spit in the faces of the award granters than change their show.

THANKS TO THE GANG ! ;-)

PS: The Show finally won a couple of awards in 2016 => http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472954/awards?ref_=tt_awd
