When even the characters on the show don't know who Josh is, how am *I*
supposed to know who Josh is? :-/
I could have sworn the lyrics to his song said he was *not* who he
looked like. I assumed that meant he was a fake Josh. How did they
figure out he was the real Josh and everyone else was fake?

Agreed. And Eliot can actually sing!

This was already in the queue, but I moved it closer to the top.

Law and Order: SVU - "In Loco Parentis" - Carisi's niece claims she's
raped then says she made it up then says she was raped a second time by
the same guy, but this time she means it. The only way to get a
conviction is for the guy to make a dramatic confession on the stand.
Good thing this is SVU...
Survivor - "Only Time Will Tell" - Mostly background noise.
Speechless - "UN-UNFORGETTABLE P-A-PAIN" - JJ and his friend who happens
to be a really annoying movie nerd go to a movie. And other even dumber
