Good job on stealth matchmaking, Gina!

Sister was the worst! Just like Dad!

The opening Backstreet Boys bit was one of my favorite things on this show in a while, so good.

Also if we get to see Doug Judy again, I am totally predicting he's going to show up married to Jake's half sister, because making him family would be just about the perfect end for his character.

Doug Judy has better taste than that, as evidenced by his attempted wooing of Rosa.

I really loved the Boyle-carrying-Terry moment. Boyle has been unpleasant lately; it’s nice to see him getting a moment of Awesome.

The Boyle-carrying-Terry moment. For those who may not be familiar with the source material.

It was nice seeing Sewage Joe again!

It still blows my mind that Sewage Joe and host of terrible short lived daytime exploitation talk show The Test are the same person. Do an image search for Kirk Fox and behold the transformative power of a creepy mustache and a pair of glasses.

I think he's acting. He would need to do yoga for that kind of bone strength.
