Sorry to break it to you, but the cats own you now.

And are already plotting my murder. At the last stop I came back and they were both on the driver's seat. (At each stop I would take them out of the carrier, put some water in a dish on the passenger-side floor and let them play while I went in.)

Steward: "To where?"
Dorothy: "Not Europe, France, honey. France is in Europe."
Lorelei: "Well who said it wasn't?"
Dorothy: "Well, you wouldn't say 'Is this the way to North America, Mexico', would you?"
Lorelei: "If that's where I wanted to go I would."
Dorothy: "The dealer passes."

Guys. Is everyone listening to Off Book yet? I know we talked about it before, but it's seriously about to surpass HDTGM as my favorite podcast. Good thing it's on opposite sides of the week, so I don't ever have to decide on which to listen to first. This week's episode is the hardest I have laughed in a long time, so if you're not listening yet, try this one first and then go back and listen to the others (which are also GREAT).

And then go hit up the forums threads for those eps. I want this show to have all the listener interaction it deserves.

I listened to the first episode today and loved it. Not sure I'll have much to say about it in the message boards but I'll definitely be listening.

Hey look, I watched Gigi today and I'm a bit confused. I mean, for a Musical Monday pick it seemed a bit out of place. I mean, there just wasn't much music to speak of. And the Ben Affleck/Jennifer Lopez chemistry was pretty unremarkable. No wonder this killed Martin Brest's career.

I can definitely see why this was considered one of the worst movies ever, but still puzzled about the pick.

No, no. I see what happened here. You watched Gigli. We're watching Gigi - the Musical about child prostitution...

Oh! OH! Oh oh oh!

That explains so much.

I kept waiting for the singing, and then I thought that Christopher Walken or Al Pacino might do a little soft-shoe but instead Al just shot that guy in the face. Justin Bartha could have sung a whole number about The Baywatch. Missed opportunity.

Time to watch the one about... child... prostitution...?

And...not a lot of dancing. There's tons of sitting and singing, though...

Gigi is the Fleet Foxes of musicals.

If you want a movie about child prostitution with VERY little singing and/or dancing you could always watch Pretty Baby (with Brooke Shields) or Taxi Driver (with Jodie Foster).
Lorelei: "Pardon please, is this the boat to Europe, France?"
Steward: "To where?"
Dorothy: "Not Europe, France, honey. France is in Europe."
Lorelei: "Well who said it wasn't?"
Dorothy: "Well, you wouldn't say 'Is this the way to North America, Mexico', would you?"
Lorelei: "If that's where I wanted to go I would."
Dorothy: "The dealer passes."

Why are we watching a movie about an aging male golfer?

OK I can be the butt of jokes. I had NO IDEA Maurice Chevalier is actually in the movie! I looked on YouTube to try and compare/contrast him with Louis Jourdan and then I found out.

I also had no idea Chevalier was a painter. How did we miss him in the painter pun thread?

Hmmm... coming into this late makes me slightly nervous about actually watching this but I trust my fellow Cameron. Maybe I'll wait another day or two.
My Howdy sense is tingling. Break out Google maps and my abacus...there's a C&O to be solved! And this time, it's personal...
