Most of my favorite moments (and there were a lot of them) have already been posted, but I'll quote some anyway just for purposes of redundancy:

There were so many great moments: Tom's Mamma Mia review...

 PFT's laugh at "Morgan Spurlock's girlfriend". It was, pardon the phrase, epic.

I enjoyed how much PFT was enjoying Tom's rapid-fire GOMPs towards the end of the show.

I'm re-listening to Wurster's second call. It's amazing. One of my favorite kind of calls - the obscure namedropping and bizarre popcultural references, plus lots of nods to everybody listening who has some knowledge of previous calls and the Newbridgverse. Similar in style to "Club Pizzazz" and Matthew Tompkins' calls.

Batman confusion was pretty great.

He's probably not that familiar with that particular comedy troop and thought he was hearing something vaguely racist.

or maybe he's like me and just avoids them because of their name.


my least favorite part of the show was when tom said he un-facebooked james, and then i looked and found out that tom un-facebooked me too. i don't think i'm as bad as james.
but i'm not sore about stupid internet crap, so it's no big deal.
it happened right around the "morgan spurlock's girlfriend" part tho, so it took some of the funny out of that for me.

best moments for me:

- PFT's "ballroom dancing" story.

- steve in north hollywood's "double."

- spike's continued absence of any sense of humor whatsoever, and the calmness and vulcan-like logic he exhibits as he answers "no" repeatedly to tom's increasingly ridiculous questions. he's so deadpan about it i lose it every time a particular line of inquiry begins.

- the underlying message behind abba's "take a chance on me" is "i'm garbage."

The reason last week's show was so awesome is that it was in 4/4 time.

I'm afraid to check whether or not Tom has de-friended me.  Even the thought of actually makes me a little anxious, which is pretty ridiculous.

All my favorite moments have already been covered, but in defense of that Batman call: "Straight Up: the Dark Knight" was pretty hilarious.
Oh, good heavens. I didnít realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the OíConnor family.

Second favorite, right after Spike has done the "Hello, Patton" and laugh at Tom's request:

Tom (laughing): Thank you, Spike. You're a good guy.
Spike: Thank you. I'm glad somebody approves.
Tom (stone-faced): Get off my phone.

That is tied with PFT and Tom laughing on the Morgan Sperlock call. That shit had me crying.

- the underlying message behind abba's "take a chance on me" is "i'm garbage."

I've actually spent time in the past breaking down the lyrics to TACOM, trying to see if the subtext suited the purposes of a protest I was involved in. It was mindblowing to hear the theory vocalized since I'd come to a similar conclusion myself then and nobody else I told this to agreed in the least, if they cared at all.

Now you HAVE to tell us what exactly you were protesting.

I feel wary divulging too much, but the point of the protest in general was to sway the foot soldiers of a larger interest into seeing things in a new light, or Taking A Chance On Me (me being the cause in that case). I can tell you the song didn't work out, although it's become more of a personal anthem for me as an appeal to life to life itself, since tbsowfmu and the abba box came into my life.

This makes it sound more like you're working on the Andre 3000 campaign.

One of the most surprising things I've ever heard on the show.
