7. There was an episode that started with Trevor, and Darcy talking backwards.. I didnt get a chance to tape it when it was originally played. However I will tape it next time I can. I know you are sad, but lets talk about something to fill in this space. Nothing really stands out in this episode, I think maybe they played some of the above stuff. But if Im wrong, its a shame. It doesnt look like they will ever be playing these again, so Ill have to get this episode off a friend that I know who has it.. he isnt a big tom green fan anymore, so I hope he didnt tape over it
