"There was no abundant intentionality!"
This show is so versatile. Not only does it capture the rough language of the New Jersey mob, but it perfectly nails the pretentious pseudo-intellectual blather of college students. What a great show these writers could make set at a first-rate university. Plenty of opportunities for sex and conflict both between students and faculty.
Some more favorites from last night:
Meadow's anthropological analysis of conflict resolution among Italian criminal organizations.
"Do me a favor, hold this!" (SMASH!) "I saw that comin'! (laughs)"
The headstone with "PEEPS."
"Fuck the foot! It wasn't the fucking foot!"
Vito looking very very scary outside the porta-toilet. He's usually just comic in appearance. How'd they do that?
" . . . and as my parter told me, I AM carrying a full load."
Edit: Also have to mention that one of my dreams came true on Saturday. I saw the Pixies in concert in Palm Springs (I've seen Frank Black a half dozen times as well as Kim Deal's short-lived band the Amps). They played a very tight set of their most popular songs. Of course, there was no new material so no surprises but, oh those perfectly crafted songs! Hope they put out some new stuff.
