Quotes

Abed Nadir: I chose "My Dinner with Andre" because it's about a guy who has an unexpectedly enjoyable evening with the weird friend he's been avoiding lately.
Jeff Winger: You think I've been avoiding you?
Abed Nadir: You and I hung out more last year. It makes sense. Everyone else is growing and changing all the time, and that's not really my jam. I'm more of a fast-blinking, stoic, removed, uncomfortably self-aware type. Like Data. Or Johnny Five, or Mork, or HAL. Or KITT, or K9. Or Woodstock and/or Snoopy. Of course Spock ...

A fantastic episode
26 March 2011 | by martyyuSee all my reviews

I don't want to give too much away but I was so mystified early on in the episode, with its heavy themes and paucity of jokes - it was still captivating and amusing - but then the payoff is so surprising and hilarious. Then, upon rewatching, I saw how smart the writing was and was laughing at new and different things.

Then, after watching the source material that inspired the episode and then watching the show a THIRD time, I saw even more jokes. Clearly, I have way too much time on my hands. But kudos to the network for airing such a ballsy, intelligent, anachronistic shaggy dog joke. And mad props to Danny Pudi for his amazing performance. Watch the episode again to just see him and how he changes throughout the episode. He's the reason for this show's success.
