Yay! White Josh is still consistently fantastic.

OMG the Cringe song - how I love it.

Also more of Paula in a corset please.

This episode was a bit lightweight but that was nice after last week's exposition-fest. It was great to just spend some time with these characters. Loved Patton Oswalt in the Cringe song.

Paula looked fabulous in her Hallowe'en costume and all of the girls looked great in their skeleton dress (as did Patton Oswald in his skeleton suit).

It seems a shame there was a controversy about the directing credits on this episode. (Sorry, you may have to scroll to the top of the thread to get the full story).

I know it was lightweight, but boy did a lot of things happen! I can't wait to find out what havoc the not-so-silent partner wreaks on the firm.

And Rebecca's song...I have resembled that song in the past. The Cringe definitely encapsulated my personal low-grade everyday horror.

Of course Josh bought a baby koala costume for Hebecca. And I love how he described Hebbie: "the daughter of my ex-girldriend and her boss"...but I remember there being more to it than that...

I also liked how it ended with Rebecca, Heather, Valencia and Paula having a VERY EXTENDED version of a sitcom episode ending.

Both songs were fantastic, and I feel personally represented and/or assaulted by each of them.

(Also, I realize there are only so many styles to parody but Rebecca hits a note in "Time To Seize The Day" that's exactly the first note of the first season opening theme and it kept throwing me off.)

Oh, and I really liked how every time the new partner was in a scene or being talked about, they used notes from "Who's the New Guy?" - I think they even had someone say "who's the new guy?" at one point.
