Wow, a great episode again! Along with ep 2, surely the strongest one in the series. Sad to think we've only got one more episode. I almost worry that the series finale will be underwhelming now...they seem to be operating on that kind of pattern. I think a great finale would concentrate on the birth of Mark's son and the waiting room in the hospital with Jez. So much comedic potential. And then the inevitable moment when Mark must relunctantly hold his screaming newborn son for the first time.
Anyways, great episode. Loved the idea of Super Hans worrying about the snake being pissed off when he regains his equilibrium from the salad spinner.
Also, "Mark, you are paying for that snake...to be drycleaned."
I also agree, the Elena character is great. She really is exactly like Jez...only beautiful.
Edit: I just noticed I seem to have assumed the baby will be a boy? Was that revealed or am I imagining things? Mark with a daughter..now there's a trainwreck.
Oh and one more thing....a minor gripe. Would Mark really invite Jeff to his party? Perhaps it's just "bodies in the room" as he put it before.
