I don't know that any one show would generate enough posts for its own thread, but maybe we can use this thread to discuss funny moments from all comedies? We'll see.

I discovered Fresh off the Boat in reruns over the summer. I love it, and this past week's episode that heavily featured "End of the Road" was great. Evan is my favorite. I loved this moment with him:



Even better, though, was the cut to him power walking with the neighborhood ladies

I tend to stick to English comedies and older US comedies. The newer stuff is just crap.

The recent good comedy i've watched is Hot in Cleveland. I love Betty White, but I stopped after Season 2. May want to watch it again they are now on Season 6 already.

The Good Wife isn't marketed as a comedy and surely has a lot of drama, but it's still one of the funniest shows. Last night, "I had wine at lunch, but I wasn't drinking" killed me! Also, all of those actors trying to get into that small office was comedic gold

This isn't a current sitcom, but I have a Golden Girls question and don't know where else to ask it. I saw an episode the other night where Stan is getting married again. Dorothy wants to stop it, but she ends up meeting his soon-to-be-wife in a hotel bar, likes her, and escorts her to the wedding. Did the show ever say what happened to that marriage? It wasn't long before Stan was back trying to get Dorothy again.

From what I recall Catherine, the new wife, throws Stan out on a Christmas Eve - the same episode where the girls volunteer at a food kitchen for the disenfranchised - Dorothy gives him cash to buy some flowers etc and he makes up with her. After that I can't quite recall. The show, although absolutely brilliant and funnier than just about anything since, wasn't very good with consistency. I think they end up getting divorced.

Gotcha, thanks. I will have to look out for that if I see that Christmas episode.

Anyway, a lot of TV shows are inconsistent, especially comedies. I am sure some of it has to do with the use of different writers, as well the fact that half-hour sitcoms usually aren't meant to be serial in nature. So many shows, for instance, have a love interest for a character in one episode that you never hear about again even if the episode ends with them on good terms.

Another example I saw recently is a Friends episode where Joey makes a Curious George reference and has to explain it to a clueless Rachel. That's in straight contradiction to an early season episode where Rachel has a Curious George doll and Marcel attacks and Rachel makes the crack that her doll isn't so curious anymore (great line, btw smiley: laugh). It was likely different writers who didn't even know about Rachel having that doll, or the same writers just forgot.

And yeah, with The Golden Girls I think the amount and ages of the children of the various characters changed throughout the series. I think there was also an episode about Rose hating hospitals, yet later in the series she volunteers at one.

Fresh Off The Boat this week was hysterical. The Mr T outfit (and how they tied it into the plot), Evan and the HOA (knowing about being on a dead street from the HOA, "Strike Alice's comment from the record" and "Hmmm I'll allow it"), Constance Wu's prep for the fight with the boys (and her line "Pigs don't date. Pigs feed a crowd at a reasonable price"), the Traveling Wilbury's costume ("Jeff friggin' Lynne"), the Resevoir Dogs homage, Grandma Huang as Garfield...I didn't stop laughing

There were discrepancies with Rose and Blanche's children. Dorothy and Sophia's kids stayed the same throughout the 7 year run. Dorothy had two children; Michael and Jane I think her name was. Sophia had 3; Dorothy, Phil, and Gloria Blanche definitely had 2 girls and maybe a son; her daughters were Janet and Rebecca. She also makes mention of a son called 'Skippy' in a couple of episodes. Rose I can't even remember how many children she has but her daughter Kristen is at college in one episode and sleeps with Dorothy's son Michael and then in another episode a couple of seasons later she's a middle aged woman with a 9 or 10 yr old daughter lol. One thing I find interesting is that the siblings of the girls never changed throughout the series but never were there more than one sibling per girl per episode present. For example when the singling came to visit only one sibling per character was in the episode. And they rarely mentioned the other sibling too. Dorothy had two siblings; Phil and Gloria. We never see Phil and on the two occasions we see Gloria they never mention the cross dressing brother. Even the episode where Phil dies and they attend his funeral the sister Gloria isn't even present. Blanche only ever had two sisters for the first half of the series; Charmaine and Virginia and both are in episodes separately and Virginia and Blanche talk about Charmaine during their teens however there's no mention of the brother Clayton until later in the series and when he's in the episodes there's never any mention of Charmaine and Virginia. Also, in the episode where Big Daddy (Blanche's father dies) we only see Virginia. Even Sophia's siblings; Angelo and Angela eventually both move to Miami from Sicily and supposedly never cross paths. In a very early episode Sophia makes mention of her 'brothers' but we only ever see or hear of Angelo. I'm pretty sure for arose we only see her sister Holly onscreen. Other she makes mention of her siblings, there are like 7 or 8 of them but I don't think she ever mentions their names.

^ Haha, true. And in thinking about Phil's funeral, why was it in Miami and why didn't his kids (or Gloria, as you mentioned) attend? I mean, it isn't meant to be taken so seriously, but it's kind of funny to think about.

Constance Wu killed it on Fresh off the Boat last night. I was at her comment that Santa is "labor not management—look how long it took him to promote Rudolph! Clearly not good at spotting talent.” And of course "you know those street signs that say Men At Work…women don’t need those. It’s understood.” Her jazz walk was hilarious, too.

Also, Eddie co-opting "Dear Mama" was terrific.
