anyone know where i could find a copy of some of the scripts for these episodes?


"there is some question why he is referred to as a 'cat with a beak.' " REALLY? "Cat" is a just another way of saying "dude." I refuse to believe that it's THAT old of a reference! In any case, it's in keeping with the '60s jazz swing-style of the theme tune.

Removing Quotes[edit]

Just a note here for future editors. Right now I am in the process of fixing formatting of the page. In the process I am also paring down some of the quotes from the episodes to better fit WQ's focus on quotes. I really like this show but many of the great moments are great visual moments and don't translate well as quotes. -- Greyed 17:36, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Done with the reformatting for now. Some of the sections seem a tad long, esp. Phil Ken Sebben's. Most of the episodes are not bad, one or two still feel a bit long. -- Greyed 21:48, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
