"Pick it up for six more."
It was only a matter of time before Castor got fired. Without his medication, his mental health deteriorated further. Not only that, his insane ideas also came out during a manic state as he spoke during a meeting in front of Elliot and the rest of the team.
"Oh good, I could use a laugh."
Matt's latest troubles in life manifested in Episodes taking shots at a number of targets that needed to be made fun of. Greedy families. Gossip rags. Petty criticism of weight gain. Sex scandals. Illegal substance use. Rehab.
"Did you see the nineteen year old?"
Matt LeBlanc is truly messed up in the head. While he is not a deliberately vile person, he is nearly incapable of empathizing with the difficulties that other people are going through. This also included the harm that he had inflicted on Jamie.
"Man, we are just plowing through that family."
Somehow despite the plug being pulled on Pucks, things still got worse. The all too overly pleasant trio of Carol, Andy and Myra delivered the news, but without really saying anything at all. Just more standard meaningless crap that ultimately spelled the end.
"Yeah, I'd drive off that."
It is just so typical of Carol to say something like this. This time it was after Beverly pointed out that Castor was Carol's Thelma and Louise. It turned out that things between Castor and Carol did not just end with the awkward impalement from S3E4.
"I can't roll over at night."
One of the things that Episodes excels at, is in its non-stop mockery of all things Hollywood, audience, and social issues related.
"Is that still on?"
As usual, things were not going so well at Stage 32. One of the actors, Stoke (Howie), wanted to get some flex-time at the expense of everybody else. Stoke had landed himself a role in a movie that was headed by a severely overrated douche nozzle director.
"Maybe we should try adjusting your medication again."
There is something that can be said about Matt's ability to dig himself out of a hole. For now, at least. Diane was right about his nasty vicious circle, and she should have stuck to not wanting anything to do with Matt. But Matt is also a persistent one.
"Hold that thought, I'm just going to change the sheets."
Episodes is great when it comes to all the relationship and cheating drama that seems to have no limits. Since none of the characters are all that relatable, it becomes easy to just laugh at them as they screw each other to no end, and in how they deal with their poor decisions.
"I may be a man of the year, but right now I feel like the luckiest man in the world. Thank you."
The series two finale of Episodes centered around the Man of the Year Award ceremony that was honouring Merc. All the screwings and fumblings of the last two seasons have finally caught up to everybody in this episode.
