Who Said That: All Things Halloween

Haven’t done one of these in a while. Rules refresher: quotes from different television shows. Without any cheating, Google-fu or using anything other than your brain, see how many quotes you know. I want the names of both the television show and the character who said it. Bonus points if you know the name of the episode.

1. You know what I love about Halloween? It’s the one night of the year chicks use to unleash their inner ho-bag.

2. Well, to have **** explain it, “It’s, blah blah blah blah. It’s so super, fun, and it’s gonna be great!” Lot of gods with unpronounceable names. Twenty minutes later, you find out that it is essentially a Hindu Halloween.

3. When I was little I, like, worshiped Halloween. And truthfully, part of me still does. ‘Cause it’s your one chance all year to be someone else.

4. **** hates Halloween, you know. Makes him moodier than a pumpkin full of PMS.

5. I could have gone to tricks-or-treats! Halloween is over and I missed it! Instead, I spend the night on a pumpkin patch and all that came was a beagle!

6. Halloween is my kind of holiday. It’s not like those other stupid holidays. I don’t get pine needles in my paws. There’s no dumb bunny, no fireworks, no relatives. Just candy. Boom. You go out and you get candy. It’s as simple as that.

7. Hey. **** came as doody.

8. I’m Adam. You know, like Adam & Eve, Adam? Wait till you see my snake.

9. Urge to kill fading… fading… fading… rising! Fading… fading… gone. Come, family. Sit in the snow with Daddy and let us all bask in television’s warm, glowing, warming glow!

10. Of course. I wish I’d thought of that before I put down my deposit. I could’ve been God.

11. I want to be a mad scientist, I’m going to come out in a blood-stained white lab coat and freaky makeup and a big giant Don King kind of hairdo, and I am going to turn the whole front yard into my laboratory!

12. A: Any big Halloween plans?
B: Oh, you know, the usual: slapping on my sexy nurse duds and rolling tweeners for their chocolate.

13. Now that I’m older and… deader… I see that Halloween is amateur night for death.

Vocab Word of the Week

kegger and I are starting a new Are You Me? feature: the word of the week. Each week, we’ll post a new term, word, or phrase taken from a television show. For the inaugural edition, y’all get two words. You lucky people.

piss jitters [pis jit-erz] n; 1. a shivery feeling you get when you pee; 2. a strong feeling of imminent misfortune or danger; the creeps. “If someone said something to me about my family, it’d give me the piss-jitters, but I’d ask them about it, not hide in a kitchen.”

rehymenated [re-hahy-muh-n-eyt-ed] v; becoming a virgin again after being rescued from hell by an angel and having all your old scars and injuries healed. “Brother, I have been rehymenated. And the Dude does not abide.”

Dear amelie,

Just for you, I have been very productive today.  I’m on episode four of season one of Supernatural.  Just for you!  And yeah, it is a pretty good show.  And yeah, Sam and Dean are ridiculously hot, so even if it was a crappy show, I’d probably still be watching it.

Sunny invades Oxford!

amelie is inebriated at the moment, but she ordered me to blog, so, being the faithful and sober friend that I am, I’m following orders.  (But mostly I just wanted to rat her out for being drunk.  amelie isn’t drunk often, so it’s fun to make fun of her when she is!)  

The cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is in Oxford this weekend for a wedding!  How cool is that?!  Dee and Mack were seen at Ajax today at lunch eating, and The Waitress and Charlie were seen at City Grocery this afternoon.  

We’re both huge fans of Sunny.  And I have to say, if I saw Charlie walking around the Square, I’d have a very hard time not yelling out a couple of lyrics to “Dayman,” or mentioning Greenman or something like that.  So I guess it’s a good thing I’m not on the Square tonight.  

All in all, Oxford is pretty tame when it comes to seeing celebrities.  We generally don’t freak out.  John Grisham lived here (and still does occasionally) for a while, and Morgan Freeman comes to visit the Chancellor of Ole Miss quite frequently.  Ethan Hawk has signed books at Square Books, and Tom Cruise hand delivered a horse to Grisham after the filming of The Firm.  A few movies have been filmed here, and a few people have sworn up and down that they’ve seen Brad Pitt on the Square, but I’m not sure how true that is.  

During the debate, supposedly Oprah was staying at John Grisham’s house.  (But then I also heard that Arnold Schwartsenegger was there, too, so I’m not sure which story is true.)  There were a few Arnold sightings at Square Books, though.  But anyway, I’m rambling.  

I’m hoping I’ll hear a few stories about people running into the Sunny crew, but we’ll see.  I knew a few people are going to be hunting them down tonight on the Square, so hopefully I’ll hear fun stories at some point in the middle of the night!  

amelie, I hope you don’t have a hangover tomorrow morning!  Enjoy the wedding that you TOTALLY aren’t talking me into going to.  (Although I do have to say, it would REALLY suck if the Sunny crew was going to THAT wedding.  Wouldn’t that be ironic!)

Weekly Wrap-Up: All Things TV

1. The Office was cute last night, but it felt off. Although we loved Michael’s “It squeaks when you bang it. That’s what she said.” moment. And how cute are Holly and Michael? Too bad David Wallace (Hi, David Wallace! Nice to see you! You’re awesome!) is going to bust them like a pinata.

2. Supernatural was okay, but not the best of the season. However–HOWEVER–it did end on an awesomely funny moment that we will watch over and over and over again. Some clever person over at TWoP has christened it “Thigh of the Tiger.” We think that’s brilliant.

3. Pushing Daisies is getting better and better as the season goes on. Getting backstories on Olive last week and Emerson this week really helps balance out all the focus on Ned and Chuck. Thanks to Emerson, we learned a new way to make friends (Hi. My name is Blah Blah. Do you like blooby-bloo? I do, too. Let’s be friends!), which is a nice follow up to his lessons in how the mind works from two weeks ago: “Do you understand how a head works? Do you? Because very time you say something I got to think it. You say ‘Monkey in a bellhop suit driving a car,’ I think ‘Monkey in a bellhop suit driving a car.'”

4. Chuck also continues getting better this season. We have to find a way to book DJ John Casey and DJ Mad Dog Carmichael for a party. Poor Sarah/Jenny/Katie/whatever her name is. Also: she beat the crap out of Nicole Richie. That makes us really happy, and probably a little mean. Also also: Corey is all grown up! But where were Shawn and Topanga?)

5. How I Met Your Mother should be called How Ted’s heart gets broken all the time. amelie knew Stella wasn’t the mother (amelie: unless she is and then I knew that, too), but poor Teddy boy. Maybe we’ll get to see another awesome break-up beard. This show is good at continuity, so fingers crossed.  (kegger:  The episode ended sadly, but can I tell you just how much I loved how Barney tried to resist the bridesmaids to get Robin but then ended up having a threesome?  That’s SO Barney.) 

6.  True Blood was about as uneventful as it was last week.  To give you an idea, here’s a recap of last week:  Jason’s ass, funeral, Suckie’s boob.  That’s it.  And this week:  Suckie’s boob, Jason’s strung out on V, bar fight.  They’re making Jason into a cracked out druggie (which he TOTALLY isn’t in the book) and they’re adding all kinds of shit that isn’t in the books that they shouldn’t have bothered with.  And Voodoo exorcisms?  Really?  Just because it’s set in Lousiana?  Really?  Come up with something a little more creative than that, please!  And please, Bill, please stop calling Sookie “Suckie.”  Or actually, “Suckieeeeeeee,” because he totally draws out that last bit, and it makes my ears bleed every time.

Weeknight Smackdown!

Things have changed, but not much. We get Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday nights off now. Sunday night is a grab bag–maybe we’ll watch True Blood, maybe we’ll watch something on DVD. The question is which night is better: Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday?

Cons: It’s Monday. We hate Mondays. And since Chuck and HIMYM overlap, we have to watch one and record the other, and that’s more work than we like to do on Mondays (if you’re amelie, that involves the wonderful DVR. If you’re kegger, it involves two televisions and a VCR. Either way, it’s less than fun.)

Thursdays: My Name Is Earl, The Office, 30 Rock, Supernatural (kegger:  Psst!  You forgot It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia!) (amelie: oops!)
Pros: We’ve already established that we like to laugh. The Office–we work with these people, y’all. Everyone who’s ever worked in an office has worked with a Michael or a Dwight or a Jim or a Phyllis, and kegger actually does work with both a Dwight and a Creed. Although kegger doesn’t really watch Earl or 30 Rock, she has to admit that they are a little funny and should be included on this list. One day, she will understand why Supernatural is on this list. (kegger:  I promise, I’m really going to watch Season 1 soon!  I promise!) (amelie: mmhmm.)

Cons: Once again, everything is jammed up all over the place. Record one thing and watch another live. It gets old, and we don’t like it. Plus, the shows we like are up agains CSI and Grey’s Anatomy, so they never win in the ratings. It’s no fun being a fan of a bubble show, and those seem to be the only shows we fall for (coughVeronicaMarscough).

So, who’s the winner of the Weeknight Smackdown? Drumroll please…

Thursday Nights
And we are unanimous in that.

Thought for the day

Isn’t almost every crime technically a hate crime?

Nine things I love about Pushing Daisies

In honor of tonight’s return of the Pie Hole and Ned and his Pie Hos (and in no particular order)…

1. Digby the Alive Again Dog

2. The musical numbers

3. Emerson Cod’s love of money

3.5 Emerson’s love of knitting

4. The symmetry of the names: Charlotte Charles, the Darling Mermaid Darlings, Boutique Travel Travel Boutique, Couer d’Couers…

5. All the delicious-looking (and occasionally homeopathic-mood-enhancing) pies

6. Jim Dale as the narrator

7. Ned’s arms angst

8. The fact that Vivian’s name has two Is and Lily’s name has one I, and Vivian-the-character has two eyes while Lily-the-character has one eye.

9. The coroner, his Christmas sweater, and his mm-hmms
