So... what y'all think of this one? I'm having a hard time forming an opinion.

Well, Whit sure is different when he's on painkillers, also, remind me, is there actually another episode where Whit rides a motorcycle, cause I can't seem to recall it.

This episode was different. The music remained pretty much the same between scenes. I felt like Eugene was talking a little more like a normal person. The ending where the theme was revealed felt a little off. I would have liked Penny to come down or talk from the window to reassure the gang instead of Bruce. But hey, this episode was pretty funny. For me, the best part was Wooton in the train.

Ha ha ha! I bet I could say this backwards. Inversions multiplicative of menagerie a and mayhem methodological..."

It was so fast paced that I was unable to form an opinion the first time through.

"Cars, Trains, and Motorcycles" has 21 scenes, some of the most scenes ever in an odyssey episode. Generally this episode was very fast paced and by now I have listened to it multiple times. But this episode has great re-listen value because every time I heard it I always noticed new things. the music was great and I generally think that this is one of the best club episodes.

Yes, okay I agree with what everyone said. Half the time I hated the music, half the time it was kinda fun. I think overall it was good though. The characters were written accurately. I really don't think I heard anything that felt "off" about the dialog. It was refreshing to get some classic Connie and Eugene arguing. Wooton's scene on the train felt classic as well, and I thought it was genuinely funny. Whit sort of got on my nerves or just felt too young I guess, but that's just Andre's Whit let's be honest. And I thought several of his lines were funny too. The tattoo line in particular made me laugh. I agree Penny should have been in the episode. Also, there's the whole situation with Eugene and Katrina talking about the new counselor and stuff. Did I miss something? Cuz like, there was the counselor on the train. Was that her? It was just weird and ended up feeling like a loose end.

I know, right? I thought she would be the counselor he was talking about. I also felt that they might run into Clint at some point.

Yeah Whit was...interesting, mostly it was Andre because if I imagine Paul's or Hal's portrayal it would be much different. The only line that I thought was weird was his popcorn ball line, but everything else was fine.

that probably wasn't buck's new councilor, but if she is it would be funny if she met Eugene at the next inspection "now she's in your league" "league?" "she thinks miss kendall is in a, quote, higher league then me" "you mean she's more desirable then me?" "well not in my opinon".
I thought their rideshare driver would turn out to be Clint!

I think we now know where Whit got his idea for his pizza machine though.
