That show is amazingly biting (and good) with its humour.
I was smiling throughout, but the "getting closer as I speak" was what sent me rolling on the floor! :D :D
Also "Christians... are they nuts?" - "Most."
I love it when television goes to the trouble to take on Scientology. Reciting OT3 in the courtroom is a grand dig at the organization which spent decades suing over its copyright and confidentiality.* I would love to know if there was any backstory from OSA hassling the producers or the network - they usually don't miss a single media event without bawwwwing about it.
Law and Order did a very nice job with the more veiled Systemotics in the episode "Bogeyman."
