Superb episode!!! Awesome chemistry. Don... I just love him. I've watched every youtube of his improv team "Fuck That Shit", and I cackle with laughter. Thanks to all.... I4H has been on a roll the last few weeks, in my opinion. When the magic is happening it all just seems to flow.

@tittefan420 agreed!


My fav episodes tend to have high-chemistry talent such as Tarver/Lippert or Gemberling/Ozeri/Pally/etc.

I also loved Besser/Shneider and the Armen/Besser episodes.


The more I think about it, the smaller-cast eps are usually pretty great too.


Keep em comin Matty B!

I am super delayed on commenting on this but I genuinely laughed so hard. The timing with music! The callbacks, the knee skinning! OMG. This was amazing.
