    Cut To: In the Pond

    Video: YouTube

    George: "What happened?"
    Rodney: "I took our car over to town, came back around the back road and boom -- cut to: in the pond."
    George: "What exactly happened?"
    Rodney: "I took our car to town, came back, boom, cut to: in the pond."
    George: "No don't cut to in the pond, don't cut!"
    Rodney: "I'm with you man."

    Rodney (Jordan Peele) can be maddening, especially when he cuts to things -- like the car getting trashed. He kind of skips over the most important parts.

    George: "All these people live here. This is a commune."
    Seth: "We prefer 'intentional community.' We're not a bunch of hippies sitting around playing guitar."

    No Seth, this is a straight up commune. Plus, Seth plays guitar. A lot.

    Beepers and Zenith Televisions

    Video: YouTube

    Eva: "I know New York is a great city, but I do not miss that lifestyle at all. I mean it was just stress, and Blackberries, and sleeping pills. I used to drink a triple latte every morning just to wake up."
    Linda: "Well, I see your point, but I kind of value the sleeping pill and the Blackberry and the latte."
    Seth: "You know you can really get trapped in that web of beepers and Zenith televisions and Walkmens and discmens and floppy discs and zip drives, laser discs, answering machines and Nintendo Power Glove..."
    Linda: "Wow, you know so much about technology."

    Seth (Justin Theroux) does seem to know an awful lot about technology (Zenith TVs aside). Think he stashed a Nintendo Power Glove in his room at the commune?
