Reno 911!: The Junior Bros.

reno 911(S04E02) Paul Rudd is a funny guy, and he should really do more comedy. He appeared in this episode, albeit briefly, as an instructor in Trudi's Lamaze class who informs the women, "your vagina will be ripped in half." That's about all we hear about Trudi and her pregnancy in this episode, though she does have a funny conversation with Williams where Williams explains to her that a baby must be fed everyday and cannot, as Trudi assumes, just have food laid out for it like a cat. Trudi counters with, "If I knew you were going to judge me on my parenting skills I never would have introduced you to my unborn child."

Rewinding to the beginning of the episode, the deputies discuss new policies on when they can and cannot shoot at a person. One of the new rules is that they can only shoot after they've already been shot once. Trudi inexplicably asks if she can shoot people and chickens who come into her yard.

Junior announces to everyone that his three brothers, who he hasn't seen in seven years, are coming to visit him. There are a lot of stories surrounding Junior and his brothers, especially Rooster, who got his nickname after he f*cked a chicken in the school cafeteria. When they're all together they act "like a bunch of damn Nazis on shore leave." Despite their supposed reputation, every time the scene cuts to the four brothers it just shows them sitting on a porch and watching auto racing on a big screen TV. By the end of the episode they've done nothing, but as the last brother gets up to leave he turns to Junior and deadpans: "Oh, by the way, dad's dead." Junior shrugs and switches the TV to South Park.

Deputy Williams has her hands full with a prostitute who's allegedly trying to help her locate a pimp, but it becomes clear right away she's only using Williams to drive her around and run errands. Also, Garcia, Dangle and Kimball set up an illegal immigration sting by having Garcia pose as a Mexican worker. Garcia, despite being Mexican, actually has a horrible Mexican accent. I kept wanting Carlos Alazraqui, who plays Garcia, to slip into his Taco Bell chihuahua voice (since he provided the voice of the annoying pooch in those old ads) but I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who wanted that. While sitting in the surveillance van, Dangle asks Kimball if she's ever been to Mexico, and then adds, "they'll rape you in a heartbeat." In the end, Garcia gets nabbed by immigration officials who don't know he's undercover, unbeknownst to Dangle and Kimball, who both fell asleep, with Dangle having a dream about Kimball dressed as a member of the Lollipop Guild.

There wasn't much of Jones and Clemmy in this episode, though Jones does have one of the best lines during a school assembly when the gang performs a song about not swearing: "tea bagging is for tea." Clemmy has a scene involving a van full of pot heads, but the scene doesn't really go anywhere and was probably the weakest one of the episode. Nevertheless, a very funny episode.

I have to say - I have heard of Reno 911 but never seen it - a buddy who's comedy taste I respect told me to start watching it with this new season and I gotta say its AWESOME! Great great stuff - I am still picking up on the characters but so far I love it.

Paul Rudd's guest appearance here was put into comic classicness with that vagina line but also his name - sounds like Guy Jericho but its spelled Guy Gerricault - I was crying at that! Rudd Rocks!

I disagree with your comment that Clemmy's scene with the van wasn't funny! Maybe it was kinda obvious, but for some reason it got the biggest laugh out of me. I also loved Clemmy's reaction scene when she was with Junior listening to him talk about his brothers. But the funniest moment in the episode was totally Paul Rudd's vagina line.
