Blue Man Group Discussion: What did you think of this episode?

General Thoughts:

1. I think I never got the "banana stand" joke until now.

2. I love the dead dove in the fridge. How very Gob to think he can return it.

3. That hair in the yearbook, and their crazy hair now. I am glad I didn't see this one first. Lindsey would have really bugged me with that hair.

4. The sign in the living room calls it Suite Valley I think. Definitely not Sudden Valley.

5. Maeby's banana accounting was great and then T-Bone points out it may not be right.

6. Tobias buys the (Tr)actor magazine. "Look at all these parts!"

7. Tobias's audition for the fire sale! Singing Amazing Grace!

8. Poor Tobias crying in the showers! Lucielle's, too.

9. Gob and his dramatic acts of defiance!

10. No Buster in this one :(

Great quotes:

"There's always money in the banana stand."

"Mr. Manager"

"Is there a carbon monoxide leak in this house?"

"Would you like to try that a little simpler." "No."

"Remember how crazy our hair was back then?"

"A flamer"

"He's my son. I want you to make him stop calling me."

"Their grownups. They're aloud to have fun whenever they want."

"I'm going to get blamed for this."

Running Gags (I want to think of a better name for this. Any ideas?)

"No touching!"

Fireball trick! No lighter fluid yet.

"On the next Arrested Development" - did anyone else think this was real at first? It took me at least three episodes to figure it out. I kept thinking I was missing one.

I love the fake teasers at the end!

Isn't this where we first see Tobias the never nude? When he's in the shower? I don't think it gets explained yet though...

I love the banana stand...where can I get a frozen banana around here?!

I watched for the cutoff, Bib, but they never showed that part of him. We only saw Tobias from the waist up, so it is hard to tell. He did try some of Lindsey's conditioner, which helped his self esteem. I've got to get me some of that stuff :)
