Overview (No Spoilers)[edit | edit source]

This was a made-for-TV special feature running (ca.) 47 minutes without advertising breaks.

The plot follows the pattern of the first episodes of several of the prior seasons, with the protagonists discovering their ill-gotten fortune to be suddenly lost, returning to an improvised life of crime while Jim and Randy scheme about their downfall and imprisonment. The overall story-arc resembles a full season in compressed form.

The story takes place after the ending of all of the other storylines in the TV series (but prior to the second of the two features films) and, accordingly, all of the characters' vehicles are in a greater state of disrepair than previously. Officer Jim's car, notably, has not only lost its roof, but now supports the rear-view mirror with what appears to be a vertical length of wood (or pool cue?) affixed to the hood. In general, the relationships between the characters (such as Barb and Sam) are the same as they were at the conclusion of the final season.

Cameo Appearances[edit | edit source]

• Guitarist Rob Baker and drummer Johnny Fay from rock band The Tragically Hip appear as a customers during the party scene (circa 30 minutes).

• Vocalist Gordon Downie appears in the same scene, soon thereafter, eating a sandwich.

Distinctive Features[edit | edit source]

• The format of this special episode is unusual for the series in that the camera frequently adopts perspectives that would be impossible for the (fictional) camera crew, supposedly making a documentary of the characters' lives. Within the first ten minutes, for example, the camera shows the perspective of Sam aiming his shotgun.

• The actor playing Ray (Barrie Dunn) had evidently lost weight before the shooting began: the character is thinner than in any previous appearance

• Unusual for the series, Randy's full name is given as "Randall" (circa 19 minutes).

Running Gags from the Series[edit | edit source]

• The unusual use of sliced bread (as if it were a towel) recurs: Ricky uses bread to clean his baby's skin as if it were a matter of course (compare the scene in which Bubbles is taken out of the freezer and toweled off with sliced bread, etc.)

• The final season's running gag with the word "horsecocks" recurs, but Bubbles uses the term this time, not Randy (the weather is described as "raining horsecocks").

• References to "Dirty Dancing" recur, as throughout the final season.

Rickyisms[edit | edit source]

"I'm exposed to be rich right now..." (instead of "supposed")

"Fuck Joey DiMirno..." (instead of "Robert DeNiro")

"...deerts" (instead of "deer")

"What the fuck is that smellin' I smell?"

"When I smoked the mostest dope in my life..."

"Come on, we're going to the vip room, Lucy." (instead of "V.I.P")

"No mores! You knew what was going on and you didn't fucking warnt us?"

"All you had to do was give us a little warntin'."

Lahey's Shit-Talk[edit | edit source]

"Holy sweet shit."

"One way or another, those shitnoceroses are going back to jail." (a play on "rhinoceros"?)

"Shit-bells are ringing, bud."

"Cheese is in the trap, and the shit-rats are nibblin'."

"Cyrus, you violated terms of your probation, consorting with the shitiots."

"Shit moves in circles. 360 degrees shit circles. When the shit comes 'round again, I'll be ready, Julian."
