Such a great episode. I think I was always going to love this one the most as it's the first of them that the movie didn't cover, and it was definitely done justice.

As glad as I am that the teasing with Mother and Father is over and it has been confirmed that they are not the Baudelaire parents, it's kind of bittersweet because it's kind of like more hope has been taken away. That wouldn't be the case if we also knew their kids, of course, but we don't yet.

Another least favorite guardian for me, Sir. Phil & Charles were the nice characters in this episode. There's something wrong with Klaus and it looks like he's being hypnotized by the eye doctor, Dr. Orwell who happens to have a secretary, Shirley, who is really Count Olaf in disguise.

I don't remember in the books that they mentioned if the Baudelaire parents were the reason why Paltryville went down in flames so I think that was an added bit on the show.

The ending with the reveal that the "Mother" and "Father" that we are seeing is not the Baudelaire parents but the Quagmire parents (book 5) made me scream. I love the fake out.

To Beatrice – My love flew like a butterfly, until death swooped down like a bat.

Meanwhile, back on Damocles Dock… Hey Handler!

Oh Poe, for the love of Snicket, you WOULD get distracted by chowder

What the gum? Yeah about gum…

That story is streaming elsewhere

Abandon civilization and live by a pond… well hey…

Yeah that doesn’t look near as enchanting…

Every time she ties her hair I’m like ‘I wish I had hair that just went up that easy…’

Sunny’s all ‘we could just push open the door’

Oh look there’s that eye

Charles, my dork! Of course you’d play him

The lumber mill, and the eye shaped building, which belonged to… Yes??

Heeeey Sir! But there’s your face! Where’s your cloud of smoke?

Partner can mean many things… Ha!

All excellent questions “Every time we’re about to get answers…”

Burned it down, did they? Well that’s a shocker…

Oh he’s been there, has he? “Did you ever know a woman….” Yes, GO ON?

They don’t like their parents, huh… Rumors are bad

Optimist Phil, hello!

Optimist, optometrist… VFD VFD VFD

“This mill may be miserable…” … CHUG?

Who is Count Olaf’s ex-girlfriend? Yeah I sense some bitterness…

Such poetry… such ridiculous poetry… Last thing we need, more villains

Being cautious is a good thing And awwww, can I hug you guys?

Hey there they are! Yeah, you tell them, you tell them good Not out of the woods…

QUAGMIRES! QUAGMIRES! QUAGMIRES!

Oh there’s that chewing gum..

Rule of thumb, guys, random staff changes usually mean trouble

“Shortcuts save time, take some.” I wouldn’t

Sunny, this job was made for you

Brainwashed much? Or.. hypnotized?

That is a well-stocked library… There should only be three books in there…

Oh Violet, love, it’ll be alright

Hooky, hey Hooky! Oh snap there go the glasses… Don’t go, nope…

Sugar, yeah! “I love it when you speak Spanish.”

The sign is perfect!

Well there he is! Partners? Always, darling. DAMN, GO MAMA B!

The Table of Contents, good job! Well that’s just rude, damaging books! Girl, I’m sure they’re all like that… No, wait, I was wrong Well it’s gone now

Verified Functional Dictionary

“In every library, there is a single book that can answer the question that burns like a fire in the mind.” – Bertrand Baudelaire!

As opposed to the other copies he defaced? Innocence!

Awww kiss the partner, Sir!

Now I’ve been to my fair share of optometrists, I’ve never been buckled into a chair

That’s not what she said… RUN AWAY, KLAUS! VFD!

Afternoon, Shirley…

Oh the fake windows, I almost forgot

The lights are on but no one’s home! Danger, danger! “Yes, Sir.”

It’s not your fault, Violet…

Oh you are way too perky this morning, buddy… Easy there with the baby sis!

What could be wrong… well I can think of a few things…

Shazam! The spell is broken!

Very Fancy Door… Somehow I sense a misdirect

Oooh a peach!

Of no help whatsoever? Yeah that sounds like him alright
