I really think that this could not get any better. You guys rock! Btw, idk if you're aware or not but Reddit has a "cheat sheet" of all the inside jokes and it explains the different segments and the meaning behind them. The fact that this information is on several different forums and written by different people is crazy/funny to me. I have embarrassed myself enough with all the fanboy talk so I will quit typing although I don't want to.
