My Brother, My Brother and Me Wiki

"The Sweetin Furnace" was originally released on October 10, 2013.


Can we just think of Episode 171 as non-canonical? Maybe like, a part of the extended Brotherverse? Between Justin's Tandy 12 and Travis recording inside of an enormous actor's mouth, things are rough, tumble and raw.

00:45 - Intro - The worst conditions under which the brothers have ever recorded an episode.[Note 1]

04:30 - When my husband and I watch our favorite serial dramas, I prefer to let things unfold without trying too hard to guess what's going to happen next. My husband is the type who likes to guess what's going to happen out loud, and he's often right. His correct guesses include some key points in the season 2 finale of Boardwalk Empire and the series finale of Breaking Bad, moments that would have been pretty jaw-dropping to a passive viewer like myself had he not already predicted what was going to happen. I asked him to quit sharing his spoilers with me and keep quiet until the show is over, he said they're not technically spoilers since he doesn't know what's going to happen, he's just guessing.

Where do Babies Come From?- with MBMBaM

What can you do while you're pregnant to make baby be born with a head full of hair?

14:28 - Guys, I've been dating my boyfriend for about six months now, and he came to me with a predicament. He wants to recreate his image (mainly his wardrobe) to look more adult as he prepares to graduate college in May. He is a relatively skinny guy, and the clothes he wears right now are too big on him and make him look a lot younger. He asked for my help, but here's my worry: I know exactly the look I want him to have (kind of a Joseph Gordon Levitt vibe) but don't want to come off too strong with my suggestions. How do I help him with his new wardrobe without seeming pushy and aggressive, and like I really hate what he wears now. How do I get on that JGL grind? -- Back In Boston

21:13 - My yearly get together with some of my old friends is coming up. I'm excited to see them again, but one thing is different: one of them has a kid since the last time we saw them. I absolutely detest holding babies, but I'm sure the child will be passed around at some point. Is there any way to decline without making the moment awkward, or should I just suck it up and play along, pretending I'm not screaming on the inside? -- Indisposed In Indiana

26:08 - MZ - Sponsored by Warby Parker, Hulu. Personal message from Alden.

31:11 - Farm Wisdom - The Canadian farmer's almanac.

36:27 - I have been married for four years, and my wife complained to me today that I don't tell her she's pretty anymore. I don't like saying the word pretty, and I can't say beautiful without sounding sarcastic. What can I say to my wife to convince her I still find her attractive? -- Still Sexy In Salt Lake

Nipples Tweaked: Why are guys tweaking my pecs?
Every since I've been working out, Ive developed a lot of chest and pectoral developement, Guys at the gym are tweaking my nipples and I'm confused as to what that means.Does it mean Keep up the good work or something else?

41:24 - Y - Sent in by Ashley Burghart, from Yahoo Answers user Jared, who asks:

Do people not realize McDonald's is NOT the only restaurant?
Burger King, Wendys, Taco Bell are all across the street. They were all dead on a night thre was a home football game and a car show, yet McDonald's had a long line in drive thru and standing room only in the lobby. We even had customers angry because they had to wait longer than they wanted for their food, knowing how busy we were and short staffed. There's those other restaurants, plus the car show and football game had concessions.

I have diarrhea should i go to college?


On Future Spoilers[]

“My dad will still text me like during Doctor Who. He's like, "I know what's happening!" Like, okay, all right, you live in another state now, you can't keep doing this to me. I'm my own man. I have a wife and a home. I'm a grown adult!”
— Justin

On Baby Hair[]

“'What can you do while you're pregnant to make baby be born with a head full of hair?'”
“Eat a lot of hair. Next question.”
— Griffin & Travis
“So you're a little bit unclear just about the basic mechanics of this.”
— Justin, to Travis
“Once you're pregnant, it's probably too late to be Italian, isn't it?”
“I think by the point that you are conceived not by Italian people, that ship done sailed. I don't think there's a way to remix it in the post.”
— Justin & Griffin

On Fashion[]

“And this is why, with that lack of self confidence, you guys will never be married.”
— Travis

On Chameleon Nips[]

“Listen, this is gonna sound weird, but the next time Craig walks by, you have to tweak his nipples. The expression on his face is absolutely out of control. It looks like he’s eating a sour warhead.”
— Justin


  1. Justin mentions that his Macintosh computer is dead. This may be the same laptop mentioned in Episode 525.
  2. The button Justin presses before the end of the episode plays a quote by the character Kivat, from the 2008 Japanese tokusatsu TV show: Kamen Rider Kiva.
