Step on up to the bar, order a shot and a beer from the tough-as-nails lady wearing the cat sweatshirt, and get ready to embrace your rage, because this month’s clip show is all about the Big Dog. Luke is famous for his temper, so Ann and Christy are here to share some memorable TBTL times when things got … a little heated. Mostly, we try to answer the question, ‘Is Luke a jerk, or the best friend ever?’ Along the way, we break down the original Big Dog story, critique Andrew’s handling of a difficult bartender, and agree that Luke will probably never get a job with the Seattle Bureau of Tourism. Plus, Christy’s dad started an “extreme counseling” business (it involves non-contact taekwondo), and it’s kind of awesome. Here’s a handy list of what we learned:
1) It’s probably not about you
2) When The Mummy is the voice of reason, something has gone terribly wrong
3) Don’t awaken Christy’s righteous fury unless you want your tires slashed
4) NEVER TOUCH THE BOUNCER
Bonus: Here's the episode of Nerd Out Loud where Christy lost her mind with anger.
