When looking for examples of GOOD decision making, one need look no further than at the resurgent tag team of Howie and Joey. In a shocking reversal of fortune, the much-maligned (by me) Joey stepped up and got it just right. Like a boxer, waking from too many punch-drunk early rounds, he finally saw his opportunity, identified his target, and executed flawlessly. I suspect I have underestimated the man. And may I say that he was much more likable in this episode. There is--I think--plenty of good reason for Joey and Howie to get along--this act has legs. They're freakin' adorable together--an even more dysfunctional Martin and Lewis. They play their cards right, there's a long television career in keeping this double act together.

My grandmother had avocado trees, sugar cane fields, mango trees, pigs and horses. I love to cook but I have fear of people not loving my food.

Awesome description, I would engrave it on my chefs knife and hang it on my kitchen wall. You never fail to amuse me!

Mr. Bourdain, You have a flare for description. I admire your honesty and your ability to correct yourself when needed; may I add you have quite a sense of humor. I enjoy watching your program and hope to see more in the coming year. Happy Holiday's .
