It's always sunny in philade--aaeieiiiibblrrrp

I haven't watched this show extensively, but lately i've had some time on my hands, waiting for a little something to happen, and heard that the show had episodes on comcast on demand, so i decided to watch. i've watched it before and laughed, but remembered that usually i didn't like necessarily the whole episode, but found it funny.
yeah, from what i've been watching, it seems that the episodes on the whole i'm not comPLETELY crazy about, possibly b/c i'm not crazy about 2 of the cast choices, one moreso than the other. but there's usually at least one thing in an episode that makes me laugh really hard. at LEAST. even just one weird line or delivery. really laugh.
This is one of those things. God i was crying. Her ARMS! and please note the "Jesus Christ!" from the audience.

only thing i think would've made it funnier is if the heaving at the end was either HER from the audience instead of him (they do a nice job of adding subtle touches in the show) or if her's followed his, sympathetically. but now i'm getting picky. what can i say, i'm a script-puncher-upper.

i never tended to ever dry heave when getting on that there stage . . .

but my bladder would get frisky - and i would eventually get to the point of dry peeing.

wait - is that even any kind of a real thing?!?!

did i really do it?!?

I used to get scarily gassy before every improv show, as if a pipe was about to burst down there, but once I was onstage it went away. Still happens occasionally.

Last year I wanted to make a parody of this show called "It's Often Blustery in Chicago," with a little guy who screams in a high-pitched voice all the time, a guy who thinks he's better-looking than he is, a guy who works out too much, and a girl who's kind of cute but an emotional nightmare, and they'd all say "shit" a lot and treat each other terribly. I have a friend who really likes this show, but I still don't get it. The scene you highlighted is the only thing that's made me truly laugh. Convince me there are more moments like the "Jesus Christ!" one, Mary.

same here, (gassy bursting feeling, not dry peeing!) but moreso before a play. and the worst before carrie white: the musical. i don't really ....sing. and i was the first or second (blocking it out) person to saunter out onstage to sing to open the show. i thought--what do i do if i have to run off to the bathroom. right now! or during the scene! but it would always go away the second before i had to step out. crazy.

actually, to this day, if i hear the opening montage from the musical, or that first song intro, i get butterflies and a sick feeling.

re: IASIP, i always thought the same thing, but then people who i think are very funny, and trust the comedic sensibilties of, love the show. so i gave it another chance. leslie didn't like it either, but is now warming up. there are big good moments in it. and sometimes, moments will make a show, or a play, for me.
