  1. In addition to the great lines and story and character moments, I saw a couple of unintentionally funny bits. In the opening, Sam says “600 bucks?” Coach, “Yeah, hard to believe, isn’t it?”, impressed by his purchase. And as the theme music starts up, it looks like Sam turns to Coach with a smile and a laugh, which I expect was Ted cracking up at Nick’s delivery of the line. Love it.

    Then, when Sam tells Diane, “Why don’t you come meet the girls? I’d like them to see the charity I was involved in last year.” They stare at each other, Diane fuming, and Sam is going thru varied expressions, like “that was a good one, admit it” or “come on, what cha got”, but without saying anything. I’m reading more into it than I should, but it was so interesting to see.

    And the moment when Sam realizes that Diane’s right, “You wanted to beat them more than you wanted to bed them,” and Sam deadpans “My god, I am sick.” Perfect.

    Blaine was an excellent guest. Hope he’ll be back soon!

  2. Fun David Paymer tidbit

    In 1990 he was Billy Crystal’s character’s long suffering brother and manager in Mister Saturday Night. Movie about a the origins character Crystal performed as part of his own act, a burnt out (in modern times) comedian that got his break doing TV and the Borsht Belt Caskills circuits in the late 1950s-early 1960s.

    Anyway, fast forward to a few years ago and Paymer portrays a high powered entertainment mogul, with apparent mobster ties in the Amazon Prime series The Marvelous Mrs. Maziel. About a rising New York City based stand up comedienne in the late 1950s and early (as of the last season that was released back in December) 1960s. Notably Paymer’s character represented one of Maziel’s rivals, and attempted to have her, and her manager blackballed (even had the latter “roughed up” in a very amusing episode) from doing comedy after Maziel savagely went after his client in a performance.

    Just a pair of interesting “connected” turns.
