I was various levels of "meh" about the previous 3 eps (after the extremely strong season opener) but this one was just *chef kisses fingers*

I highly related to the ending when he accidentally tears a bit out of the kids hair; that happened to me in elementary school (and got escalated all the way to the principal, even though it was a complete accident).

I am dead from laughter over the video in the end credits. (The fact I just made my first "legal in Illinois" purchase today may have something to do with that.)

Man, this has been a dark season. I'm used to feeling a renewed love of humanity after watching this show. Not this season. It's more like a sense of dread. The worst part of this season was when the Guy doored that cyclist. Fuck. That must have killed him. And in this episode, when he hears about that app and realizes his days are numbered. Sad how legalization and technology are gunning for his livelihood. And as much as I love FOMO, damn he's a burden also bringing chaos into the Guy's life.

Yeah, a big shit stain painted by a robot. That's a pretty on the nose metaphor for how I'm feeling about the world right now.
