Another classic episode of “Freaks and Geeks” is “Weirs and Beers” in which Sam and Lindsay’s parents leave them alone for the weekend… and Lindsay gets talked into hosting a kegger.  Sam, Neal and Bill want to keep things from getting out of control and they come up with the plan to switch the keg with a keg of non-alcoholic beer, but they need to sneak it past Lindsay to make the switch. That’s where Neil comes in to distract Lindsay in the following scene http://youtu.be/hYM8IL_0tXk

Samm Levine, who plays Neal, is so much like some of the kids I grew up with
: short, funny, Jewish… He’s the perfect representation of the kid who just isn’t popular no matter how much he tries to fit it. Of course, when you think that a ventriloquist act is going to make you popular, you’re probably doomed to the category of “geek”.

So here’s my caricature of Neal
