->Creator/TomHanks and Peter Scolari's woman costumes were about as believable as two men in wigs making no effort to disguise their voices. They lived in a world where everyone was so easy to trick, there was no need for the [[ZanyScheme elaborate scheme]]. They might as well have put a jar of mayonnaise on roller skates and shoved it into the manager's office shouting, "That's not male mayonnaise! Rent her an apartment! Actually, RARGH! I'm God! Rent an apartment to Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari!

->It seems weird that T’Pol did not have a “stun” setting...if she did, there would be no plot. The way that T’Pol talks about “[[TheseHandsHaveKilled the despair of having taken a life]]” suggests that this was the only time that she ever killed. It seems strange that the Vulcan High Command would not have any operatives [[EnsignNewbie better suited to the task]] -- particularly if the operative was not going to be equipped with a weapon that can stun.

->What follows is a textbook example of an "Idiot Plot", or plot that only happens because every single character is an idiot. The necessities of the format mean that the game must constantly be contriving reasons for two characters to fight. But about sixty to seventy percent of the fights are founded on misunderstandings or pranks so that after the fight ends the participants can be all chums again two dialogue lines later as the winner awkwardly helps stitch up the loser's gaping stab wounds and picks up all the fragments of jawbone that blasted out of his asshole.

->'''Mike:''' Neither character is smart. No one says, "Isn't he gonna be weirded out or suspicious that you just gave him all this gold in ''bar form?''" (And he didn't think of that.) And then when John Travolta sees it, he assumes that they ''smelted'' it, even though they have no smelting equipment or any kind--\\

->The cruise ship you're on is out of control, taken over by terrorists. They tell you that if you jump off you'll be sucked into the boat's propellers. Do you:\\\
A: Laugh at them for being total idiots and jump off anyway\\
B: Open the rear ship doors and walk off, past the propellers and at sea level\\
C: Believe them, even though it's the biggest load of donkey bollocks anyone has ever said to you\\\
Well the answer here is C. And that's the problem.
