HarveyFierstein

Jason Segel in HIMYM: Last Cigarette Ever(S05E11) You know you have a good episode going when Harvey Fierstein is cast as one of the female character's "smoking voices," and that's only the third funniest thing that week.

I'd like to think that Grammer's taking somebody's sage advice. La Cage is a no-brainer.
