  • Perhaps no other episode of the third season better highlights how quickly this show can move from absurdist silliness to serious character drama back to absurdism. -- JCaesartalk 01:10, 16 February 2008 (EST)

  • It's been a year and a half since this episode aired, and it's still memorable. Michael mourning a dead bird, the developments between Jim and Karen. This episode is one of the higlights of the third season. -- JCaesartalk 01:10, 16 February 2008 (EST)

  • Definitely one of the series better episodes even if they did later beat the concept into the ground with the one hour sequel. My favorite part of the episode is the drunken "local celebrity" Tim Stack playing himself which is made even funnier by the fact that Tim Stack actually wrote the episode. --The-jam 17:42, 4 February 2008 (EST)

  • One of the funniest and most anticipated episodes of HIWYM.
  • While watching this, I was following the countdown clock online to see exactly when the slap would occur and even though it was a little off from when it actually happened, that showed how anticipated I was for the slap to occur and will be one of my favorite episodes of this show. -- HuskersRule 03:05, 14 February 2008 (EST)

  • This episode is the perfect example of this show's absurdist humor. From the creepy blue man Tracy keeps hallucinating, to the stabbin' robot, to Dr. Spaceman, to Jack threatenig Conan, to Pete's wig, to Tracy passing out in Conan's chair the laughs just keep coming up until the credits roll. --The-jam 17:42, 4 February 2008 (EST)

  • So many episodes of this show aired it's hard to pick out the best. The boys' trip to Vegas was especially memorable in that it really got down to the core of the show. It's just the boys having fun as a result of Vince's fame. The whole episode was great but Seth Green's cameo was especially memorable as was Drama's signal crossing with his masseuse. Then when the two storylines collided with Drama decking Seth Green out of nowhere. --The-jam 17:42, 4 February 2008 (EST)
