Best. Show. Ever.

Why didn't anyone tell me this show existed when it was on? I would have sent peanuts or whatever to Fox to keep them from canceling it. I am DYING to know what happened to Lindsay after she ran away with Dead Heads. But mostly I love the geeks. Bill Haverchuck, this one's for you.

These lines from the show make me wish I wrote them:

• Ken: "I always say, girl plus car equals dead animal."
• Nick: "Wow, that dinner smells good. Let me guess...meat?"
• Neal: "I'm Jewish. That's no cakewalk either. Last year, I was elected school treasurer. I didn't even run."
• Kim: "Are you calling me irrational? Because I'll tear your head off, Daniel. I'll tear it off and throw it over that fence."
• Bill: "I don't like jokes. I don't think they are funny."

and my favorite...

• Rosso: "I. Have. Herpes. It doesn't hurt that much, but believe me, you don't want it."
• Lindsay: "Can I please go now?"
• Rosso: "I just blew your mind, didn't I?"

Judd Apatow, I think you're better on television when you can't just rely on penis jokes.
Freaks and Geeks has that signature Apatowian sweetness without all the genitalia.

So, upon entering this blog though Book Bully which I hope was okay, I noticed that you are friends/family with the Gabbarts. Which is it? They are currently in our ward.
