You have too many dogs.

I don't know why, but I was hoping/expecting "But, they're your dogs?"

I'm a bit disappointed by both the story arc and details so far this season, but Henry Winkler took this show on his shoulders and carried it, then started sprinting.

His career turnaround is incredible and he's still a beautiful person; his appeal, I suppose, was never solely on looks and his personality was a big component of it. I think that the continued development of deft expression of charisma is hard earned, but paying off splendidly.

Poor Hank! Heartbreaking.

There were so many terrific comedic moments in this episode that I can't wait to watch it again.
The screenwriting scene just dripping with irony that was almost surpassed by the scene with the crew trying to gaslight Katie? about Barry's outburst in order to keep their jobs on a show about domestic abuse.
And then pretty much everything after Gene escaped from the car was simply masterful.
I'm not so worried about hank and Cristobal -- loves conquers all.
I wonder if HBO is really considering Pam!

That final scene was both heartbreaking and utterly chilling.

That scene between Barry and Sally... Absolutely chilling. You can see Sally slipping right back into a abusive relationship.

The scene with the dogs made me laugh uncontrollably for at least like 2 minutes. We had to pause the show. Just brilliant construction.

Yeah, there was some dark shit in this episode, but the combination of "you have too many dogs!" and the way the dogs just kept coming was really, really funny.

Such a great fake-out to have Gene's return home turn into Barry's reveal. That's such a standard sequence to reveal the villain has gotten there first, except now it's our hero.

The tiny yorkie that followed Gene home had me laughing way longer than I should have.

I will never not die laughing at the cover of Toto's Africa that is always playing in NoHo Hank's hangouts

This show does a great job of incorporating gags that are just general humor. Besides the setup of the couple with too many dogs, I liked how NoHo Hank's breakup was met with an extended audio sequence, which was very realistic.
