laughing so hard at the "parent court" moment. I can't decide whether Ned's lie was actually worse than Duck's.

I hope all the people who were worried Amnesty wouldn't have as many goofs in it were blown away by the water park naming

You'd hear a lie and think, "well, that's it. That's the worst lie possible. It gets the trophy for worst lie!" And then, five minutes later, you'd hear an even worse one.

If these folk are committed to hunting monsters without Kepler figuring out what they're up to, they've got a hard road ahead of them!

Definitely my favourite episode of this arc so far - the waterpark name-goofing was the first time this arc it felt like Griffin wasn't tightly holding the reins and steering things.

H2-Whoa, That Was Fun was the perfect name. I really loved Duck's, "I've just remembered my connections in public services."

I had to stifle my laughter at the supermarket when Griffin was punishing the worst lie he’d ever heard

I really love how Duck's character is developing. He's a really thoughtful and stoic person, but he also manages to speak before he thinks so often. Like the whole jetpack thing, and his list of potential locations, and remembering his connections in public services... It follows a pattern: "Hey, here's the first thing that popped into my head! On a moment of reflection, I recognize how stupid that is. But I guess I'm committed to it now, so, yeah, let's go with it."

Coming in late to add my voice to the choir, this was a really great episode. Story stuff happened, goofs aplenty from all of the boys, and Griffin seemed really comfortable (for once) to let the narrative unfold naturally.

Here's hoping that we'll get many more of these.

This was really good, and the waterslide park names were awesome. I think they've all found their stride with this game.

I'm hoping that Justin and Griffin (particularly) now having slightly less insane work commitments (or at least having more control over them) is a factor in this seeming more relaxed. It occurs to me that needing to cram writing, recording and editing into his schedule may well have encouraged Griffin to be more focused on directing things at the table, just in order to not have to spend a long time making it work in the edit.

This was one of the best and funniest episodes for a long time. I was listening to it in the pool, and I risked drowning during the naming of the water parks. That would certainly have been an ironic way to go...
