The ending to the joke told throughout the episode ("How do you think I rang the doorbell?") belongs to this: A woman, tired of living alone, decides to put an ad in the local paper. She asks for three things: 1. A man who will treat her nicely, 2. A man who won't leave her, and 3. A man who is good in bed. Several weeks go buy without a result, and the woman is resigned to life without a man who can embody those qualities. Then, the doorbell rings and she opens it to find an armless, legless man in a wheelchair. He says, "I'm here about the ad in the paper. As you can see, I have no arms, so I can't beat you, and I have no legs, so I can't run away from you." The woman is skeptical, and asks, "Yeah, but are you good in bed?" The man answers, "How do you think I rang the doorbell?" See more »


In the scene when Nick spits soda on Kim, she kicks the paper glass. It falls to the ground, but in the next shot it is back on the bench. See more »

"Are we gonna go to Hell for this? I don't wanna go to Hell."
24 October 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

'Tests and Breasts' is stacked with character moments, whether it's Daniel cheating his way through a math test or the geeks watching a porno for sex ed. We've all been through that roller-coaster portion of health class, and Sam's increasing discomfort . . . well, who among us couldn't relate to that? It gives Tom Wilson room to shine as Coach Fredricks, a role that goes from jerk to thoughtful teacher in the space of an episode.

It's also a showcase for James Franco, bringing charm and confidence to a loser like Daniel. The rising tension in the counselor's office at episode's end yields one of the show's best moments. Backed against a wall, sometimes all you can do is just break into laughter.
