A nice written script.
9 January 2015 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

It seems that the staffers are planning parties for Paul and Claudia as the date of their marriage approaches. The guys will be having their party at City Hall while the women will be at the local tavern.

At the tavern the girls are talking about things that have happened in their past when a priest enters the place to ask for Claudia's party. The women believe it is the stripper they ordered but actually turns out to be is a real priest. It was a present from Stuart.

The boys are playing cards when they discover that the statue they are to present to the city the following day is actually a finger giving the bird sign. Now they have to think of a way to get the statue out of City Hall before the presentation in the morning.

The story was of the statue was a fresh piece, never before written in such a text. It was new and a breath of fresh air as it cause a stir in excitement over the comedy sitcom world. The rest of the stories were just filler with the only surprising note was being the robbery at the hardware store. Overall a nice watch that was well performed.
