"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?"

Any clip that includes "Creak. Slam. Sit." of course deserves the top slot! Though I'm surprised that "A Worthy Uhhh" didn't rank on the Best Of list. I'm glad it at least made B-B-B-Bonus status.

Does this mean that unfunny is officially the new funny?

very disappointed that the Reggie Watts/Paul Giamatti freak out didn't make the list or at least one of the bonus slots. That ep still makes me cry from laughing to this day. I have to listen to it at least once a month to get my fix.

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.

Now, perhaps most importantly, Scott is heading to a Phish concert tonight. I am excited.

And to think, some people didn't want Jack to return.

How dare you voters forget about Jason Mantzoukas reading from Patrick McMahon's limerick notebook!

Looking forward to Andy Richter, he's quietly become one of the top couple guests (wasn't he the one that pulled out Hot Saucerman?)

PFT and Scottobot have Wittles/Saucerman levels of chemistry.

In case anyone is still wondering, this is more or less how the tangled smooch between Huell Howser, Huell Howser, Jessie Ventura, Paul F. Tompkins, Pauls F. Tompkins & Yogi Bear works.
