Mike wrote:Jay had just gotten some money out of a safe to pay Jon's character:

Jon: That was good, I didn't hear a thing.

Jay: It's a quiet safe.


i dug the running gag of the "safe" being another performer offstage just taking the money.

almost forgot another one of my favorites...Clinkenbeard was taking Audrey on a date to the state fair. he had to hit the center pin three times to win her the big bear. he hit the first two no problem. then he turned around with his back to the audience.

Jon Clinkenbeard: "Tell me if i miss." ::throws it over the shoulder, wins the bear, gives it to Audrey:: "There. Look how happy you are."

it was the supreme deadpan confidence that sold it for me. 8)

Menelaos: How do I know you're my real mother? What was the name you called me in childhood?
Ruby: I called you ::makes unintelligible high pitched warbling noise::
Menelaos: MOM!!!

Oh man, "There, look how happy you are" was such a wonderful noir line.

Love this show so much...

Pick Your Own Patch show, March 12
Kaci asks a creature named Pillar (Jastroch), who also happens to be a pillar, if he wants to walk across a field with her.

Jastroch's reaction: "You . . . asshole!"

Also, honorable mention goes to Kristin for instead of telling Kaci she had a green thumb, that she had "a finger in her." She then proceeded to make it even more ridiculously innuendo-filled by trying to say everything she could to make it not sexual.

From The Violet Underbelly - March 12

Context: Former criminal mastermind Danny Trew (Marc Majcher) is asked to do one last job, even though he has a safe job as a dockworker. His response (paraphrased until I get the actual quote)...

"Ever been to the lion cages [at the zoo] and watch the lions? Zookeepers will walk right into the cages and feed 'em great big steaks, and the lions won't even attack 'em. Know why? There's no fight left in 'em, being behind bars for so long. They just take the steaks that come to them. Know what happens if they try and eat the zookeepers? They get put down. I just want my steak."

That was "True" in my mind, and I think they were tigers. But yeah. I was totally surprised and delighted with what was said by the time those sounds stopped coming out of the hole in my face, all by themselves.

From Austin Secrets, 3/24/11:

Valerie: I'm hungry. Would you like some pudding?

It needs no context...

(If you really want to know, Valerie plays a mom who puts sleeping medicine in her kids' pudding to make them sleep early. She is then sent to a parent/teacher conference, and then she tries to get the teacher to eat the pudding with the above line.)
