    Aside from Heiress A Parent, this is my favorite cartoon of the fall. After a rather gloomy first appearance, this Sam character somehow became incredibly funny to me. I loved just about everything she kept saying. And I think Princess Pi found its groove with this story.

    Originally known as "Princess Pi vs. The Libby" before TVTropes corrected the issue that the cartoon originally complained about:

    Also, for this scene to work I had to contradict something I'd said earlier about Pi inventing TVTropes. In any other series I would have worked around it, but this is supposed to be a lawless series where I can throw such continuity worries away, so I made the contradiction the joke. A third person will probably be credited for inventing it later.

    Of course, Sam Adams also works as a beer joke, so I think that joke still holds up on a different level.

    Probably one of your best and funniest action sequences yet - I always enjoy seeing you write car chases. The whole "You'll take my brains out through my nose!" conversation is brilliant.
