The Day Fuckers
The plot's concept originated in the presence of a bunny costume at a photo-shoot for the Comic-Con episode two years ago, with the perception of furry as a fetish coming from story editor and producer Ally Musika.
The thread of the episode's plot relating to furry fandom involved lead characters Vincent "Vince" Chase (a movie star) and his brother Johnny "Drama" Chase making a $5,000 bet that leads to Vince's best friend and manager Eric competing with driver/gopher "Turtle" for sex.
Drama finds a woman called Kelsey for Turtle on Craigslist who claims to have been a prom queen. They meet Kelsey, who appears as described, and tells Turtle to pick up an item of clothing from a dry-cleaning store and meet her at her home at 9PM.
At one point, it looks like Eric will hook up with a previous girlfriend, at which point Drama claims the money. However, the situation changes, and the bet is on once more, so Drama drives Turtle and the suit to Kelsey's house.
Turtle ultimately refuses to go ahead with the plan, which leads to Drama rushing off into the bushes with the bunny suit. The episode closes as Turtle peeks through the window, only to see Drama having sex with Kelsey doggy style (in a brown squirrel costume), accompanied by her muffled squeaking and the dull thwap of his padded paw upon her buttocks.
The show received mixed but fairly positive reviews from Entourage fans - some viewed it as the "best episode" in the season, while others criticized the lack of plot development and quipped that the series had finally "jumped the bunny".
Furry fans were predictably concerned about the show's possible impact on their reputation. However, in a similar manner to CSI, the episode introduced the concept of "furry" to those who might otherwise never have heard of it.
|Drama: "Old Johnny-boy is going to take you to a place where even an one-eyed leper can get laid." -- Turtle: "Where's that?" -- Drama: "Craigslist."|
|Turtle: "So, uh, what kind of fantasies are we gonna be fulfilling?" -- Kelsey: "You'll find out later."|
|Turtle: "What the fuck's a furry?" -- Drama: "Someone who wants to fuck you like a stuffed animal."|
|Eric: "So, you gonna fuck in that." -- Drama: "Actually, furophiles refer to it as 'boinking'."|
