Jimmy returns to his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida to visit his mom and see friends and invades his old buddy Ted's house again. Ted has a live orchestra in his house, thus the random musical interludes throughout. For the loyal listeners, you'll remember that Ted co-hosted last year as well when Jimmy visited. The boys discuss Green Lantern undies in Wal-Mart and Oscar nominations. Jimmy chats about his new found love (thanks to Lorraine Cink and Jon Hoche) forUncanny X-Force and briefly mentions the season premiere of Archer. Plus, he plays a bit of a song his co-worker sings who is ridiculously talented.
