    The fifth episode airs tonight at 11 PM Eastern. No Sunday repeats since AS pulled it due to low ratings.

    Second favorite episode after the court room one. Best moments:

    -"This rabble of mid-level managers, teachers, doctors, lawyers, and Nobel laureates will BOW before the might of Leonardo Leonardo Leonardo! Sorry, Leonardo Leonardo." :D

    -"There's a bottle with a note in it." "Then throw it out!"

    -"Oh we have a delivery. A SPECIAL DELIVERY OF PAIN!!!" Just the way Jay delivers that line is gold.

    -"For break, pull cart with teeth!"

    -Jay completely disregarding the "Do Not Pull" switch

    -The repeated "You wanted to see me, Coach Dante?" prank

    -"Oh God, it's the kid in the helmet."
    "Yes. LOOK at him."

    -The incredible ease with which Dante is able to convince Jay to play on the team. "OK."

    -The fact that Randal would rather read Asian chick nudie mags instead of allowing his Asian maids to have sex with him

    -"Escort Service"?
    "Well, actually, it's supposed to be "Leonardo's Plumbing and Heating and Escort Service", but it's eight cents a letter."

    -The Challenger explosion joke

    -"Go sexy Randal The Pharaoh Wizard!" (a guy with a net chases him)

    -Jay's repeated "Get him!"

    -Dante cropped out of the baseball picture at the end

    Best line of the episode.

    "You said you wanted to see me, Coach?"

    "What do we do, Coach Dante?"

    So much greatness in this episode.

    I think by episode 4, and especially this one, Clerks TAS had found its comedic groove. Too bad we never got much more.

    The sequence where they beat the malnourished children at baseball was so funny, yet so wrong.

    Low ratings? Low ratings again!!?? NOOOOO!!!!!!!


    Sorry 'bout that.

    Anyway, I liked this episode. The fact that Randall chooses to play an arcade over having sex was funny. I don't really understand the joke that Dante was a coach yet his team didn't remember him at all. The bottle gag was funny. As was the return of the "why are we walking like this?" gag. And Charles Barkley's cameo with the Star Wars characters was also funny.

    Yeah, this show could have at least gotten like a dozen episodes..

    ABC really shafted it.

    God, Randall is cool. I wish I could do to him what he did to all those girls, then I'd be a true man.

    I'd pick the real life Geishas over the mags, though.
