    Such a great episode. And the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness was the greatest moment in this great episode.

    Fish is just like a vegetable. Catch it and throw it back.

    Great episode. Rob Lowe and Rashida Jone are almost too good looking. Their babies would be blindingly beautiful.

    I love that “Romantic Love” comes between “Chicken Protein” and “Deer Protein”!!! When he was showing the chart to the boys he said “Fish is for sport only. Fish for food is practically a vegetable.” LOL!

    I love how the one guy was working at foot locker and then took his uniform to be the referee!! Brilliant!

    I have to agree with the John Wooden guy. It was first presented in an episode on a youth rec. league basketball game at which Ron was the coach. Also there was an homage to Bobby Knight at the end when Ron kicked and threw a chair onto the court.

    It was so good I’d cry, but we all know we’re not able to do so unless we’re at the Grand Canyon or a funeral.

    My favorite are the limits he puts on “Rage” – one every three months, TRY not to hurt anyone who DOESN’T DESERVE it.

    I like frankness: cut the b.s. A very important life lesson
