My Name Is Earl: Monkeys in Space

When one of Earl's old friends is arrested, he decides to make amends for number eighteen on his list - "told an inappropriate story at Hank Lange's birthday party". Hank requests that Earl give him one good day to make up for that one bad one before he is sent away to the state prison. Hank requests a visit from his grandmother, a copy of his hometown newspaper, and donuts from his favorite shop. But providing all of these things before visiting hours end at noon proves to be more work than Earl anticipated.

Meanwhile, Randy decides that he needs to find his purpose in life and begins looking for a job. After a series of disastrous first days, including taking a job as a busboy for Darnell at the Crab Shack, the brothers decide that Randy is destined to be perpetually unemployed.

Episode Quotes
(About Hank.)
Earl: They're sending him to state prison for 20 years.
Joy: Long stretch, but at least he'll be able to spend some quality time with his daddy.

Earl: One time me and Hank polished off 4 bottles of Mad Dog and swore to each other that if one of us ever got put away for hard time, the other one would break him out. I hope he doesn't remember that, Randy.

Randy: Joy said I should get a job so you don't have to support me anymore. You know, pay for my food and muppets and what not.

Earl: A purpose is a great thing to have. It gives ya a reason to wake up every morning.
Randy: So, a purpose is like a box of powdered donut holes?

Inmate: My wife's gonna put a razor in her mouth and pass it to me when we made out during my congical visit. Got anything sharp on you?
Randy: Just my toe nails, but I won't put them in my mouth. They're dirty.

Randy: Thanks Darnell, but I was gonna try and find a job where I wouldn't slip in pee-pee.
Darnell: Okay, good luck with that.

Randy: Here's a good one. Make your own hours, no experience necessary.
Earl: No experience? You got a lot of that.

Randy: I don't think I like the exciting world of science anymore. It's no fun being blind.

Earl: After dinner, I'm literally gonna have to help you use the bathroom.
Randy: You don't have to hold anything. Just get me on the seat. I'll go like a girl.

Randy: Earl, the light. It's my purpose.
Earl: Randy, that's just the sun coming out from behind the clouds.
Randy: And it's doing it just for me. How cool is that?

Randy: Why is Stevie Wonder always smiling? Maybe he can't see that he's smiling. Am I smiling, Earl?
