The second act of the episode features a sequence 10 minutes and 13 seconds in length composed of nine shots carefully stitched together to look like one continuous take. The longest take, from Charlie closing the front door begin the health inspector through to bringing her into the basement, is nearly six minutes long. See more »

That last reviewer is either a moron or has no idea how television works. First of all, this episode was funny as hell, secondly the 13 minute uncut one-take performance by Charlie was simply amazing... One scene that lasted 13 minutes, completely uncut, all done in one take, while moving in and around the bar and even outside is just simply brilliant... Even Scorsese would be proud of that scene...

So I don't know what the last reviewer of this episode is talking about, because for me the show is just as good as it has always been, and this episode is one of the best in the whole series...

Brilliant show, funnier than most things on TV, 10/10
