Russ: a little frustrating.

Final Thoughts

After another game of Odds-Even to decide who goes first.

Romo: I am really pissed at Audrey. She further supports the reason why all women are weak and stupid. Almeida is smart enough to stay away from them bitches. I hope he screws Michelle and then leaves before she wakes up or even better sends her away with just cab fare.

Russ: This episode reminded me of my Scotch. Sharp, strong and not that watered down. And it made me a little horny.

Murtz: I tried to come up with final thoughts for this episode. But my brain was consumed with the thought of what Audrey and Edgar’s kids would look like. With no Robert Purchase in attendance I feel that Tony did not get the credit that he is normally awarded. MARWAN FOR LIFE!
