Well, we can't have that! I will try to explain the joke.Mort Meyers: No, but you’re gonna fix it. It’s a spring break movie. Get down there and find out what they sound like.
Maeby: Oh, yeah, right. Do you really think I look college-aged?
So, Maeby is trying to hide the fact that she's too young to have this job by incredulously asking if she looks college aged.Mort Meyers: I’m not drunk. But I’m willing to be. Hint.
His saying "I'm not drunk" is a mild jab at Maeby, meaning she'd only look college aged if he had a few in him. But then when he says "But I'm willing to be. Hint." he's kind of conveying that he would still have sex with her if she wanted.Maeby: Oh, Mort. You’re going to be so easy to blackmail. Hint.
And Maeby brushes him off.
It's not the greatest joke in AD, but hopefully it's no longer the joke that haunts you!

Then Michael corrects him by saying Tin Man, and Tobias looks really awkward and taken aback, like he got caught saying some sort of homosexual innuendo.
smasherx wrote:The S. Funke joke from Alter Egos was insanely subtle. First of all, it was a call-forward (you could only get the joke after seeing the episode entirely at least once). And even then, it was hard to pick up on. Alia played that line perfectly. I did not know there was any hidden joke (I believed her about that single/married thing), but sure enough, there was method to her madness.
S. = Single = Surely
M. = Married = Maeby
