February 7, 2007: This Turned into a Damn Tearjerker Season 1, Episode 6

Is this show really about robbing Mick Jagger or is it about spoofing other shows? Last week we had the ubiquitous sappy date, and this week we had the reuniting of a long-lost father and son. And what a moment it was. What a lovely thing it was to finally hear those words every parent wants to hear upon seeing their child for the first time: "I assume you're my millionaire father, but who are those other people?" The bonding scene was the "They aren't really doing this. Oh, my god, they're really doing this" kind of greatness that comes along every so often (more often than not with this show, but rarely outside of it). I don't know who thought of having Gary sing "Cat's in the Cradle" in Hindi, but it was a moment of pure nirvana for me. Of course, this was really an episode to showcase Maz Jobrani, what with that and his singing the ringtones that supposedly made his character a millionaire. He, Rockefeller and Squatch always get the best lines, but tonight his, "When I was just a little bit older than you, I once had a romantic interlude with the cafeteria lady at my school. What? At the end of the day when the hairnets come off, they're just ordinary women with needs," was a strong contender for the win, as it was hilarious and expanded on the character's (already well established) backstory. Of course, the other dialogue in the running was Rockefeller's exchange with the Burton security guy, after referring to Ajay as his son "Tyree": - "My lady's so white, she like a nurse's uniform." - "So you end up with an Indian kid from that?" - "Hey, I don't question the boss. I'm an intelligent-design guy all the way all the way." Basically, this show is evil, and I love it. In addition to satirizing other television shows, we got a wonderfully successful mocking of corporate culture tonight, when Eugene got the cubical-dweller out of the way by saying that everyone was headed to the break room for a birthday celebration. I also loved his explanation that to move the filing cabinets took one set of authorizations and to move them back took another - it just seemed so (depressingly) real. Other wonderful moments included Louis taping up his face ("Joe College: getting it done") and the "Halloweem" discussion (and no, that isn't a typo, all of you who haven't yet seen the episode). But the greatest one-liner of a night full of great one-liners - and I'm sorry if this leaves you with a horrible mental image until the next episode - had to be, "You're the female, Indian Don Rickles." Welcome to the height of snarky absurdity, population: Gourishankar. show less
