Quotes

Mac: All right, let's get this guy outta here, send him a message.
Dennis Reynolds: Let's do it.
Charlie Kelly: Right, let's slash his tires.
Mac: Well, not that though, because then he can't leave. That doesn't make any sense.
Charlie Kelly: Well, you start putting plans under microscopes, nothing's gonna make sense, all right?
Mac: Lots of things make sense. Slashing someone's tires so that they leave makes no sense.
Charlie Kelly: You're gonna put everything I say under a microscope, bud?
Dennis Reynolds: It's a stupid idea, Charlie.

Highly underrated.

That doesn't sound right, But i don't know enough about stars to dispute it...

Frank cracks me up so hard in this episode, his attitude towards a certain mortal sin is beyond hilarious.

Excellent episode, one of their strongest.
