-->'''Will:''' I'm not putting you down. [[NoExceptYes I'm just saying that what you do is a really bad form of pollution that makes us dumber and meaner and is destroying civilization]]. I'm saying, [[WithDueRespect with all possible respect]], that I would have more respect for you if you were a heroin dealer.

* ShownTheirWork: The episode about Osama Bin Laden's death was obviously ''extremely'' researched: [[DwayneJohnson The Rock]] really was one of the first to tweet out something that seemed to indicate that Bin Laden was dead (and he ''does'' really have a cousin who is a Navy SEAL), the Phillies and Mets ''were'' playing baseball against each other that night and former Rumsfield aide Keith Urbahn was the first legitimate source to tweet that Bin Laden was dead. It becomes lampshaded at one point when somebody lists off every major network TV show that President Obama's address will be pre-empting, simply as a way of noting how serious whatever he's going to be talking about it.
