    Nothing yet? Some funny bits.

    "Stella!"

    "You'll never go broke playing to a rich guy's ego - - - write that down,"

    "Blind side was the Black kid who played tight end."

    "Offensive line."

    "Sorry. African-American kid."

    City Council meeting was a little weak, though.

    I thought it was good. I get what the Stella bit was about but didn't really find it funny. Jay/Manny together always make me laugh. The "offensive line" joke was great.

    When this show first came on the air I couldn't stand the Phil character at all. Now he's one of my favorites on the show. It's Claire I can't stand. I've always like Julie Bowen but her character on MF annoys the hell out of me and I don't find her funny at all.

    I was fully expecting that the dog they took from that girl was not Stella at all, but there was no follow up. Was that really Stella, or did they take the wrong dog?

    I had been building up this season and my sister, niece and nephew came over last night and we watched the whole two hours. Hilarious good entertainment!!! :D

    I think the 'offensive line' joke was the most well-written joke I've heard in years. That was awesome.

    It really made me want to look up the writer of the show and see if that person ever wrote for Arrested Development.

    I saw the "STELLA" thing coming a mile away the minute Cam was in his undershirt. :)

    I thought Phil's announcement that he was blind-siding his wife was the funniest line in the episode.

    I agree, it took me a beat, then I laughed hysterically. My roommate didn't get the joke and looked at me as if I'd lost my mind.

    It took Toine a second too, but he's a foreigner and English isn't his first language, so I don't hold it against him. :)

    I ended up having to explain it to her, and once you have to explain a joke, it just isn't as funny.

    Very true. But also, the reason it was so funny was that it took a couple seconds for it to register!

    This season hasn't been up to the standard set by the show last year. It is still a great show, just not clicking on all cylinders so far.

    "You'll never go broke playing to a rich guy's ego - - - write that down,"
    -Funniest line of the year. His delivery was perfect too.

    Manny: Hello Ma'am, do you love Christmas?
    Neighbor: Actually I'm Jewish.
    Manny: Well then you must appreciate a good value.
    Jay: Oh Jesus....


    Me: Spit-take

    The whole video with Phil and Luke was great. I meant to see if it is actually on youtube.

    "Offensive line" was just so smoothly interacted between them that it was perfect.

    I loved that all three plots had them going door to door for different reasons.

    "Offensive line" was an Arrested Development caliber joke.
