Delivery Steak’s Big Break

Last night’s episode of “Rules of Engagement” on CBS featured some dialogue that pretty much sums up what those of us who are “in the know” know.

Ya gotta get good, quality steaks or your whole meal is shot.

The main character, Jeff, takes his wife Audrey away for the weekend but forgets that his order of steaks will be delivered to his home while they are gone. He scrambles around trying to find a responsible friend to rescue his steaks from his front door and put them in the refrigerator. (I’d freeze them, but that’s just me.)

He ends up asking his irresponsible friend Russell (played by David Spade) and hilarity ensues. 

Here’s the conversation between Jeff and Audrey:

Jeff: Oh, crap, our steaks are coming!

Audrey: Why do we have steaks shipped to us? They have perfectly good ones at the supermarket.

Jeff: That’s why you’re in charge of salad.

All right, it’s not a side-splitting slapstick scene but it was funny to me. I’ve loved Patrick Warburton since he played Elaine’s dingy boyfriend David Puddy on “Seinfeld.” His deadpan delivery is right on.

You can watch the entire episode right here:


If you do, note the unapologetically generic box the steaks come in. And even though they’re supposed to be from “Company X” the box looks suspiciously like one from the Kansas City Steak Company.

I’m just saying . . .
