"Empire Strikes Back is the Rosetta Stone of your language, of the beep boop language!" is definitely Scottabot's quote of the year or QOTY for me. The way he delivers it so emphatically gets me every time.
Also, Huell Howser becomes Dr. Manhattan with Jesse Ventura as his Quado is my favorite bit of the year.
"Were that the chimes at midnight?"

I don't think I can fully explain how much I love the fact that the Farts and Procreation is #1 (I absolutely voted for it). I think it really encapsulates everything that is great about CBB. Long form improv, characters, dedication to bits, absolute lunacy, Harris Wittels...Having said that, much like Trainspotting or Requiem for a Dream, I have no interest in ever listening to it ever again, despite absolutely being in love with it.
Thanks for the great year, Scott and co.! Looking forward to the coming year!

I nailed it in my predictions (see Part 1 thread), so I'm extra glad about the number nose and one rankings. I listened to those episodes 2-3 times each and still listened to 'em again in the countdown and laughed my ass off. I love that Andy Daly also got the number 3 spot, he deserved it.
Am I the only one who kept thinking that Scottabot and PFT should host an awards show after these countdown episodes? That chemistry is like the Anti-Hatthway-Franco.
Thank you Scott and guests for a fantastic year. Cheers.
