In the story Long was drinking though, so should we take his tale with a grain of salt? According to him, the female driver shared with him that she often takes her fares to go and have sex with her grandmother.
Her grandmother is 92-years old. Long didn't specify if he was given the offer to go and meet the woman, but neither did he offer much more in the way of details. This is the kind of tale for which there are many questions.
But it was funny, as the gang found themselves relocating to a neighbor's apartment when their dryer turkey experiment led to a fire in their apartment. Never mind that the lady of the house was dead, it gave us time to get to know Jess' bizarre male counterpart Paul, played by Justin Long.
So was it weird seeing someone just as goofy as Jess driving the guys crazy, or do we like the idea of her finding someone like herself she can enjoy? Of course, if they're too much alike, doesn't that mean he'll soon be driving her crazy? Future episodes perhaps ...
Bones - Thursday November 17, 9PM ET/PT, Global/Fox
I do enjoy it when 'Bones' decides to have a little bit of fun with their murder scenes. This week, they find their victim shrink-wrapped with a Prince Charming doll. Turns out, the woman worked for a toy company headed by guest Morgan Fairchild, who always adds a dash of creepy camp when she turns up. Meanwhile Sweets prepares for his gun certification, despite the fact that Booth still objects to him carrying a weapon.
Justin Long and Kristen Bell will lend their voices to the show currently titled 'Unsupervised,' which focuses on two optimistic teenagers, Gary and Joel, who are "navigating the harsh landscape of teenage life and trying to do what's right without any parental guidance whatsoever."
Fred Armisen, Romany Malco, Alexa Vega and 'Sunny' star Kaitlin Olson will also voice characters in the show, as will Rosell and Hornsby.
The series will premiere in January and run after the FX animated series 'Archer.' It will also be animated by the 'Archer' production team.
Long -- yes, the movie star and Mac guy from the Apple commercials -- will play a recurring love interest for Deschanel's character, Jess.
According to EW, Long will play Paul, a music teacher, in three episodes of the new comedy about a lovelorn newly single woman living with three dudes.
'New Girl' premieres Tues., Sept. 20, 9PM ET on Fox. Long is set to appear in episode six.
Aww, hipster love!

It's not what you'd expect, though. According to TV Guide, the newsman has booked a cameo as himself on the ABC sitcom 'Better With You.'
King will shoot the guest spot next week, and the episode is scheduled to air in March.

Last week marked the 10th anniversary of 'Ed,' which certainly has a plum spot on our list of great shows that were canceled too soon. The fine dramedy that revolved around a barrister/bowling alley proprietor and his quirky fellow Stuckeyville-ians premiered on NBC on Oct. 8, 2000. And though its four seasons whizzed by all too quickly, we can't say we hardly knew ye, 'Ed' ... in fact, we knew ye, and loved ye, quite well.
"Thiw iw how I normawy talk, and I thought we were -- we're not recording thiw. We're jus hangin' out in between segments," said Long. "Yeah, no, this won't air," joked Jimmy Fallon.
Then Long pretended that Fallon was mocking him and made him "rebeat afber me" a proper apology. Fallon had a difficult time keeping a straight face. Long, too, broke character for a few seconds, when he laughed into his 'Late Night' mug.
Host Jon Stewart seemed a little confused as to whether Drew and Justin were still dating -- but that's okay. A lot of other people are confused about that too. For her part, Drew remained coy, saying this about Justin: "I may be [dating him]. I may not be! I don't know!" Honestly, she really did seem like she didn't know, so maybe the celebrity couple are just going through a weird time right now.
(S35E03) Drew Barrymore is energy. Pure, almost-scary energy. It's disorienting to watch when one is bleary-eyed and staring at a tiny TV in the wee hours of the morning, but this trademark makes for consistent television-viewing. While the quality of Saturday Night Live's writing may waver from episode to episode, every time Drew Barrymore returns, one can safely expect absolute enthusiasm and a palpable willingness to step back and laugh at herself.
All right, little Ms. "I Extra-Love Female Empowerment," prepare for me to work that ego.... Especially when one compares her to the typical "hot girl" host (see: Megan Fox's SNL premiere), Barrymore doesn't box herself in and offers a lot more opportunity for fun characters. Would someone like Fox ever be willing to bolo it up to play Nina Wilkes Booth? I doubt it.
I'm not saying he needs a complete autopsy. Maybe just a little exploratory brain surgery that doesn't do any permanent damage to the neurons and synapses that allow him to conjure long lists of hobo names and an incredibly detailed history of the American lobster. Trust me, there is a hilarious global warming cure in that noggin somewhere.
So after watching his brilliant and funny performance at the White House Radio and Television Correspondence Dinner (Speaking of which, didn't we just have one? How many of these damn dinners do they need? Are television reporters experiencing a major shortage of grilled chicken?), a lingering but obvious thought occurred. Why does this man not have his own television show?
