    3:00 “Effort to find footage not found”

    Do you mean you made an effort and couldn’t find the footage, or could you literally not muster the effort to look for it?

                            You never put this many spices on traditional Gravlax though, just dill and salt.

                                          Needed this win after the Ginger Beer? That comment and the sound for the last few minutes make me think this was a long lost episode that's been found behind that stove where wooden spoons go to die.
