Thoughts/Theories/Trivia/Questions (1:05:00 – 1:27:15):

  • Have the McMurray’s and Shoresy hooked up?
  • Katy and BOTH McMurrays?
  • Was Stewart’s reference to the roots of the “ache dancing” (Estonian, Samoan, etc…) the seed for the Dax and Ron takedowns?
  • Where did Coach’s
  • Thoughts/Questions/Observations from our degens:
Mark Sparky – Facebook
Love Mrs McMurray! That way she looks a Daryl when they talk about his upcoming performance is sexy as hell!
Valerie Lopez  – Facebook
One of my favorite episodes!!! When I interviewed K Trevor Wilson, I mentioned how much I thought this episode conveyed friendship and helping a friend in need in the final scene. He joked about how hard it is to line dance in overalls.
Question/Theory – anyone else creeped out by how similarly goth-y and creepy Pastor Glen and the Skid’s music sounded? And we all saw how creepy the McMurray’s were!
Courtney Kristin Scag – Facebook
I think what was creepier to me about the McMurrays was that they did that ‘act’ in front of the entire town. I mean we all know bad gas travels fast in a small town, so I would guess that the whole town actually knew it, but it wasn’t ever portrayed outside of the smaller group settings that we’ve seen before. And you gotta laugh at McMurry’s response to Wayne, something like well these costumes were gonna have to get dry cleaned anyways.

jeresyd79 via /r/Letterkenny on Reddit

Are you going to talk about how during the scrap dairy saves Wayne?

Mark Sparky via Facebook

Other than the occasional box shot, why don’t the women fight?

Mitch Cole via Facebook

2 things:

1) Notice that Squirrely Dan is still finishing his beer as he runs into the fight

2) Dan looks no more than mildly inconvenienced at Rat Ass trying to choke him out. He doesn’t even look mad. Just slightly annoyed

Valerie Lopez via Facebook

1) Found fact when we rewatched this episode. For anyone that watches the -ish shows, when one of the guys comes out of the truck saying “my name is blah blah blah” and a second guy says “my name is”– the first guy cuts off the second guy. That second guy plays Vivek in the tv show Grownish. We learned he’s a Canadian actor!

2) the moist/squirt/yeast wordplay is impeccable in this episode – add your own!!

I do enjoy re-watching along with your podcasts. A few random thoughts and I had to turn on closed captioning.

1) All the word play is awesome.

2) I think Glen and the skids win this episode. Glen gave a “STRT”, then Roald says to Glen ‘What happened to “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid”?’ as he’s looking at the ground. And Glen gets excited.

3) Did Glen have a Doctor Who reference with Allons-y?

4) Which one of you called my sister a skank? Oooo, there’s not much I can do about this one kiddo. Its all right, boo. I got her.

5) Squirt Cobain… TOO FAR!!!

6) Fight scene music matches up great with the fight – No Age “Boy Void”


7) I actually watched the credits – What are “Moist Consultants” – there are 3 names listed
