Prev: Mugged
Next: Sally Returns

Murray tries to interest Bret and Jemaine in his tour of New York band rotundas. However, Bret has a date with Coco, the girl he met at his sign-holding job.

PlotEdit

Jemaine tags along on the date, and quickly makes a habit of inviting himself along on all their dates. When Bret finally tells Jemaine that he doesn't want him to come on the dates any more, Jemaine and Murray's conclusion is that Coco is pulling a "Yoko Ono" and trying to break up the band. Bret takes Coco's side and quits the band. Ultimately, though, Murray and Jemaine come to realize they miss Bret again, and Jemaine convinces him to rejoin the band.

SongsEdit

The following are songs featured in this episode.

If You're Into ItEdit

If You're Into It" is a rewritten version of "Coco's Song". At Jemaine's insistence, the song's lyrics are simple and direct, describing what Bret would realistically like to do with Coco if she were "into it". These suggestions begin innocently, but quickly escalate to sexual fantasies, finally ending with a proposed threesome in a kitchen. Bret sings "If You're Into It" for Coco while sitting on the ledge of the Flushing Meadows park fountain in Queens while Jemaine, who has tagged along on their date, sings the chorus.

Pencils in the WindEdit

Pencils in the Wind (also known as "Sellotape") is a heartfelt ode to the similarities between love and adhesive tape — generically referred to as Sellotape in many countries including New Zealand. It begins with Bret and Jemaine singing separately and in different locations — using split screen — and ends with most of the cast (Coco, Mel and Dave) and a large chorus of extras singing together in a night-time street scene, and concludes with Bret and Jemaine rising from the ground, in a similar manner to the end of Grease and the music video for "It's Oh So Quiet" by Björk.

Coco's SongEdit

Coco's Song is Bret's love song for Coco. Though only pieces of the song are featured in the episode, it is mentioned that the song is two hours long. Jemaine questions the commitments Bret makes, such as to "climb the highest mountain", and suggests that he rewrite the song with more realistic promises.

She-WolfEdit

The song "She-Wolf" is only seen briefly as a song Jemaine is writing. It expresses his obvious dislike for, and mistrust of, Coco.

Background NotesEdit

  • The giant metal sphere that can be seen in the background when Coco gets serenaded is the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, New York.
  • The amphitheatre in which Murray and Jemaine discuss Yoko Ono is the Corlears Hook Pavilion in East River Park on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
