Recorded LIVE from the Downtown Independent Theater as part of the RIOT LA festival, it’s a b-b-b-onus episode of Big Bang Theory Comedy! IT’S BEEN quite a while since high school student Traci Rearden has been on the show as she catches up with Scott about their time at prom. Harris Wittels also stops by with a fresh batch of Foam Corner and a mysterious vigilante hero hailing from Cumberbatch County, Florida simply known as JW Stillwater appears who fills us in on his life as a crime fighter.

I just want to say that it was a pleasure to listen to the trombone side of the WYR theme (I guess the recording mic was positioned near the left speaker). Kudos for your arrangement chops mr. Sondheim.
British Empire and whatnot...

The closing sentiment-off is the greatest thing that has ever happened.

I loved this amazing tete-a-tete:

JW: Y'ever see Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?
TRACI: No.
SCOTT: Sure.
JW: Umm, Daniel Craig, the actor, he like uh, he hooks his glasses into his ear and just lets them hang under his chin like that.
TRACI: Harry Potter?
JW: Yeah, Harry Potter...? Did someone say Harry Potter? Did I say it by accident?
TRACI: 'DANIEL CRAIG-'
JW: 'DANIEL CRAIG?'
SCOTT: She's never seen any movies other than Blue Jasmine. She doesn't know.
TRACI: Is he in that?
JW: No. Not in that.
TRACI: Then I don't know who he is.
SCOTT: Any time anyone mentions a movie she says 'Harry Potter?' hoping that Harry Potter is in that.
TRACY: 'Cuz I read the books so I can keep up like I saw the movie.
JW: Hey, even a broken clock is right twice a day. You're bound to get lucky one of these times.
TRACY: Ok.
JW: Hey, you ever see that movie about them wizard schools?
TRACY: NO. I read the book-- Oh, Harry Potter?
Likes: Tomatoes, umbrellas (all kinds), some dogs, most cats

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe J.W. Stillwater, aka Eddie Lee Capers, is an expansion of a "character" PFT did during the Best of 2013 episodes. His voice also reminds me a little bit of the time PFT did a Huell Howser impression when there was an alternate universe Huell in the studio. Anyway, great episode; I predict that, with this, one of our Best of 2014s has already been released.

EDIT: Found it, it's in Best of 2013 Episode 4 starting at around 1:07:30.

I love that Paul F. expanded a silly riff in a Best Of episode ("sireens") into this JW character.

Yep, that was fantastic. I love that in his one appearance of the year where Paul isn't playing a character, he still manages to create a character.

The opening prom discussion and closing adage-off were both gold. Also gold - pretty much everything in between.
