On paper, Todd Barry’s soon-to-be-classic “Yesterday was great” monologue from “Elevator (Part 5)” looks boring as shit. But because of both the clever way that Louis C.K. shot it and Barry’s terrific delivery, the monologue turns into a great climactic summation of many of the six-part arc's themes and emerges as the arc's equivalent of the mesmerizing GoodFellas helicopter sequence, but without the nose candy and the coked-up paranoia. Plus it’s an effective argument for not waking up until 10 in the morning.—JJA
