 November 16, 2010: Roy's story about his first wife. It's kind of touching while still being completely in character.

Hmm, not sure if I've heard that one. There was one time when Jon W. called in as Mrs. Roy Ziegler ... doing a higher-pitched version of the PBR voice, which doesn't even seem possible.

I'll second theCleef's vote for:

July 11, 2006: Philly Boy Roy And His Psychic Son.  A great, multi-tiered PBR call -- Running of the Cheesesteaks into Roy, Jr's psychic powers into Laser Allin into the Quiznos that lacks Philly pride.  Also marks the debut of "Philadummy" being unleashed from PBR's canister of quips and snaps.



Also -

June 22, 2010  Roy talking about local Philly (like the polo mallets) sports franchises and homemade vuvuzelas with John Oliver and John Hodgman. 

His Amish odyssey of 2007 was great too.  It spanned several calls, and was epic.
Sounds like someone was working as a conduit for nature's natural vengeance.  Just like Jesus.  And some of the others.

December 6 2011, where PBR goes to London. Throws eggs at Big Ben for good luck (it's how the Beatles got famous), gets called "a right tosser" by Noel Gallagher, brings over a sackful of hoagies on the plane.. "tally ho my good man" +"by jove" as spoken by PBR... Oh my.

Also, merely hearing the intro of that Hooters song with the melodica really cracks me up.

As a resident of these "Isles of Wonder" I like this one a whole lot although I appreciate it might not be an all-timer otherwise.

Roy visiting The Gathering of The Juggalos was a lot of fun too. August-16 2011

And Roy revealing his until then hidden love child (who might be wealthy) Nov 16-2010
"You know it's like, if you had a choice between 4 slobs dressed as lumberjacks and 4 shirtless good looking guys in tight black jeans and high-top leather sneakers, who would you choose?"

Roy Ziegler's script with Tom Scharpling as the ape monster. If memory serves that might have been a two or three parter. But my memory doesn't serve me well.

And you can't have a best of without Philly Boy Roy's Christmas poem.

And any mention of whippin' batteries.



I can hear you judging me.

That's my fave too. Tom gets put down by callers a lot but this script's lurid descriptions just go on and on and get funnier and funnier. I really miss the show intro where this was quoted.

May 21, 2013 when Philly Boy Roy resigns as mayor of Newbridge and names Tom as his successor after PBR's municipal mismanagement leads to mayhem in the streets. I liked it because it was long, I never want those PBR calls to end.

so...what is the answer. The 'lil lady and I are heading down to Philly for the weekend and I'd love to play her a PBR call on the car ride but can't decide which one. I'm looking for one that best sums up Philly, Roy and The Best Show in general.

Kinda leaning toward the 'Invincible' call. that's the Roxboro Peeper one too, I think... and RoboHoagie...?

which call is the most Philly Boy Roy?

thanks!
