I got a bad hair cut the other day, thought about this episode on my way home, and what do you know, it was on later that night.

This episode doesn't have any really great lines, but I did love the inclusion of the music for "Barber of Seville". It made for some hilarious situational comdy. without it this episode would have been a flop.

I loved the inclusion of the music from "Barber of Seville" in this episode. It unified the episode and made for some hilarious situational comdy. Without it this episode would have been a flop. Wouldn't be in my top 10, but would probably be in the top 20.

What was that Penske guy all about anyway? He was a shady character in an episode with strong mafia undertones is all I gathered. Did one need mafioso qualities to be "penske material?"

The difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut? Two weeks.

This is certainly a weak episode and feels like the numerous weak episodes of the 8th and 9th seasons. I always felt the presence of LD was important in giving the episodes a somewhat realistic feel. Andy Ackerman has noted how the later episodes felt "sillier" and to me, this episode fits that description.

On a more interesting note, at Grace's party that George is describing at one point, writers Tom Gamill and Max Pross are seen shaking their heads in disgust at George's toast. To my knowledge, this is the only apperance they ever made in an episode.

Does anyone have any idea what George's actual task on the Penske file was supposed to be?
