Tim Heidecker's kitchen show thing, he's been doing these very earnest and inept cooking segments, eventually Eric shows up to talk some sense into him and gives the undeniable line "Dude... you're making sauce." Delivered with such contempt.

The backwards spinning clock behind the first interviewee in this Onion clip really gets me. Just something so aggressively unhelpful about it

Can I hijack this thread to ask what series (and ideally which episode) of Big Train contains the man who can't open doors? Thaaanks

The Larry Sanders Show. The season 2 finale, "LA or NY?". The very final line:

"Fuckin' frogs."



Bit of context: Larry isn't making a xenophobic remark about the French, he really is just inordinately pissed off at some noisy amphibians, which is much funnier

It's definitely Series Two, and I'm pretty sure it's the first episode.

While it's definitely a joke (or at least, a scene designed to provoke a response depending on the type of person you are), I used to not even be able to think about this scene without bursting into laughter. It's just so perfect in every way. https://youtu.be/dqrFJO29b9o?t=160

Tim Key's Late Night Poetry Programme, the Work episode. Tom Basden is complaining about something and Tim transitions seamlessly between shhh and shhhhut up.

It's definitely Series Two, and I'm pretty sure it's the first episode.

you're correct! thanks a whole heap.
