‘Weeds': Martin Short Attends a ‘Fingers-Only Meat Banquet’ (Video)

Showtime's dramatic comedy upped the laugh quotient on Monday

Tempers flared on Monday's episode of "Weeds," as Nancy headed to Oakland to fight her sister, Jill (returning guest star Jennifer Jason Leigh) for custody of Little Stevie.

But the cooler head of Martin Short, as Nancy's attorney Steward Havens, prevailed — or at least Short made us laugh a few times.

Here's a funny scene from the episode that features two alums of "Saturday Night Live" — Short and "Weeds" regular Kevin Nealon.

It is set, improbably, at a "fingers-only meat banquet" — a name that causes Short to quip, "And you've titled chapter three of my book." The clip also prominently features the words "meat volcano."
