    After a mixed start to the season, I thought tonight's episode (S6E3) was excellent. While the first two episodes still displayed that rapier wit Veep is known for, I felt the scattering of the Veep ensemble made for an unfocused start.

    But the gang (mostly) coming together tonight made for an A+ episode, with a few lines worthy of the 8sec rewind. Loved how they brought Minna back; she was always a good foil for Selina.

    Hoping the writers can keep this going...


    [Note: there was a thread for E1, but nothing since. Season Threads work well for shows like this.]

    Agreed. This was a great episode. Minna asking Selena what type of orgasm she preferred was hilarious.

    "I just come and get it over with."

    "Just from talking?"

    I'm starting to get the impression that Jonah's maybe not too bright..?

    Selena gave Gary that horrible food that she made herself-after throwing away most of what the chef made for her (oh, that Bernaise sauce...) - I can't tell if that was sweet or horrible...

    Drugged-up Gary was hilarious! Making the pulse oximeter "talk" and telling Katherine that Selena didn't think she was pretty..

    And he was useless to Selena-"What's the password to my phone?" "I dunno!"

    When they fell asleep together, and Gary put his arm around Selena...:oops:

    Dan is rapidly becoming the worst person on the show- "I look like a minority hire! - At least 3 women owe me an abortion refund!"

    For you [Jonah], disaster is a step up!

    Lots of good laughs in this one!

    I wonder if Gary's was a "sympathetic" heart attack.

    Wasn't it just last episode when Amy ditched her fiance that was running for Governor of Nevada? Then suddenly this week she's back running things for Selena. Was there an explanation that I missed, or was it just a given that Amy didn't have any better job prospects and would come back to work for Selena?

    I loved how Mike was trying to push the completion of her memoir, because he doesn't get paid until it's finished.

    It's the best comedy on TV hands down.

    My favorite was his comment about the current President, "Whoo, that Montez is a Latin piece of ass."

    I think that was the joke. I think Amy just showed up and Selena didn't bat an eye. Notice she was still screeching for Richard? And one of the characters eyed up Amy and was questioning her being there but it was thrown away.

    OMG-the look that Selena gave Gary when he said that-JLD is the BEST!

    And how he shares his studio apartment in NJ with 3 roommates-he gets up at 4 AM so he can get to the brownstone by 6 to steep Selena's tea...God Love Him!

    No Veep tonight.

    It was scheduled earlier, but for some reason they've postponed it a week.

    Re: the season finale "Groundbreaking"

    Gary with the fanny pack and mullet- :D:D
    Candy Striper Gary - "I crushed [the ice] myself" "I'll get you a cookie"

    Selina was horrible to Katherine from the start- "Will you be nursing?" NO!
    (Richard (edit-sorry, his name is Andrew-I always think his name is Richard because he's such a d**k): "Those are for Daddy!" :eek::eek::eek:)
    Oh-there's some black s**t coming out of it-
    Oh, can you give us your number in case we have any questions about it
    The nurse gave the number to Richard (edit-Andrew)-RUT ROH!
    I think I want to run for Congress..

    And then Selina makes the birth of Katherine's child all about her-of course!

    Good gravy, she is the WORST!

    Poor Dan!

    Jonah's running too? BLA HA HA!

    I saved this one to watch again...too many little things, I am sure I missed something!

    Selina's ex is named Andrew. Richard is the bio father of her grandson and also her grandson.

    Loved the libgina.

    Selina really is the worst. But the show is awesome!
