    @Tracey – They sang, “The origin of Cactoid Jim…” :-)

  2. Tracey says:

    I’m catching up on these and just listened to this one last night. There was a little musical interlude at 12:17 that I couldn’t understand, right after Jim explained how he ended up where he was. The audience seemed to love it. Anyone know what the lyrics were there? Thanks!

    Oh, and I second the motion to have some video of these, although I understand that Largo is pretty strict.

    I LOVED THIS EPISODE, although it made me nostalgic for Firefly all over again… YAY ADAM BALDWIN!
    Hopefully we’ll be seeing J.K. Simmons returning to Sparks Nevada as well?
