Not bad this one as four different actors play the one guy.
Has another sting in the tail.

This is one of those episodes that, like some films and TV shows, makes you think 'Wouldn't it be great to have that ability' only to point out the pitfalls and say what would happen if you abuse the ability. I found it quite funny how he was perfectly able to take on the voices and personalities of people who (presumably) he had never met!

Some of us can't handle people with 2 faces, let alone 4! That's nothing about anyone here btw, just a joke.

Are you sure it's not a subconscious comment about those ex-members who rejoin with a new username and are banned again?!

Back on topic, this is one of those episodes that makes you think 'What would I do if I could do that?'.

Very true about the 'What if I could do that?' comment. You do think how great would that be? But then when you really think about it, it's hard to think of much that you could do that's not violating someone else by doing it.

Clever stuff.
