Divine Comedy..


It seems that t.v. is flooded with too much drama. Yes, I love Lost, yes, reality t.v. is mind numbing and wonderful, but I have to say give me comedy. There are very few seriously funny shows on t.v. anymore. Here are a couple that I truly appreciate. If anyone has any recommendations on some witty shows that I may be missing let me know, so I can watch and enjoy with the rest of you..

"Now for baby Parry's 1st birthday he will be wearing a tux, and a top hat. But the question I have for you is. Is if we give him the cane and monocle to go with it, will people mistake him for a midget?" - Notes from the Underbelly


"Oh Robin, my simple friend from the untamed north. Let me tell you about a little thing I like to call 'mind over body' ... You see, whenever I start feeling sick, I just stop being sick and be awesome instead. True story. " -How I Met Your Mother


"The most sacred thing I do is care and provide for my workers, my family. I give them money. I give them food. Not directly, but through the money. I heal them. Today, I am in charge of picking a great new health care plan. Right? That's what this is all about. Does that make me their doctor? Um... Yes, in a way. Yeah, like a specialist." -The Office


"You know what's weird? Donald Duck never wore pants. But whenever he's getting out of the shower, he always put a towel around his waist. I mean, what is that about?" - Friends


"The code of the schoolyard, Marge! The rules that teach a boy to be a man. Let's see. Don't tattle. Always make fun of those different from you. Never say anything, unless you're sure everyone feels exactly the same way you do." -The Simpson's


"To me, the thing about birthday parties is that the first birthday party you have and the last birthday party you have are actually quite similar. You know, you just kinda sit there... you're the least excited person at the party. You don't even really realize that there is a party. You don't know what's goin' on. Both birthday parties, people have to kinda help you blow out the candles, you can't do it... you don't even know why you're doing it. What is this ritual? What is going on? It's also the only two birthday parties where other people have to gather your friends together for you. Sometimes they're not even your friends. They make the judgement. They bring 'em in, they sit 'em down, and they tell you - 'these are your friends! Tell them thank you for coming to my birthday party." - Seinfeld

(*ten points if you can tell me who said them)

Awesome shows! I can't go for the 10 though--I know--LAME! :) If only I had a better memory...

caitlin said...

Oh, I didn't know it was a real word, I thought you were just being funny, so I made a joke about it. good to know though! Thanks! :)

shell said...

um... caitlin... I totally made that up! I have no idea what a "fig pimp" is!!!

I'll go use the urban dictionary though and see... no definition there.

That totally cracks me up that you thought I was serious :)

Scott and Lindsey said...

Michael Scott, Chandler and Jerry?? Just guesses. Those are the only ones I watch, but the others sound great too.

LOVE THE OFFICE. Thursdays now have it and Lost back. I'm so happy.

caitlin said...

Shell, yeah I thought that was kind of strange, but I just went with it! Too funny.

Scott and Lindsey said...

Wait no, I think it is Joey.

Amber said...

I don't know. Both girls have the same manicure it seems and they are both tan. It is hard to tell I replayed the last part a million times. I can't wait two weeks! I will lose all respect for him if he does!

caitlin said...

Lindsey you were right the 1st time. (Chandler) :)
