In the movie Do the Right Thing, Rosie Perez says "micki-friki" during an argument with Spike (Mookie). He responds by saying "Don't talk like that in front of my son!" That was hilarious.
hate to disagree but spike lee didnt "invent" the word snap. Im from brooklyn, 'oh snap' was used all over back in the 80's(at least in brooklyn/nyc)

Show just keeps on getting better, loved the last 3 episodes. Cat fight par excellence with "Kung Fu fighting" rocking in the background.

Here's a link to the "Urban dictionary" definition of snap.

The season finale ended with the motel maid apparently insulting Joy in Spanish. She was actually saying "this episode completes our first season. Thank you for being with us and please return this autumn." [poorly paraphrased]

lol really? that's awesome. i'd say that qualifies as an easter egg...

this was probably my favorite new show of the season. it was consistently funny, often hysterical and very, very entertaining. great job. i can't wait for the fall

'Mi nombre es Earl'

By Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette TV Editor Friday, May 12, 1006

So what did Catalina (Nadine Velazquez) say in Spanish at the end of (Thursday) night's "My Name Is Earl"?

Here's the approximate translation:

"With this we finish our first season of 'Earl.' We thank you for being with us and we hope to see you next fall."

It doesn't fit the agitated tone Catalina was speaking in, but it was a nice treat for fans (or, in my case, for a translation-capable friend) who speak Spanish.

Is that good or bad. In TV lingo ss primetime considered 8pm? I forget what time it was one before since I DVR'ed it. As far as the day I thought that the closer you were to the weekend the worst.

My name is earl was on the few new shows that I kept coming back for more (Grey's Anatomy the other) . On more thatn one episode I was literally :D

Thanks NBC. I hope that for next year is more uniform as this season some shows were :D while others where just :)

Thursday is prime real estate - best day of the week.

Looks like they'll be going up against Survivor and Smallville instead of CSI.

Considering they had the blockbuster "Friends" on Thursday's at 8:00pm for most, if not all, of its seasons I would say that's a good thing.
