One of the things I love about Danny McBride stories is where they just make a thing up and everyone just immediately starts acting like it’s always been a thing because no one wants to admit they don’t think it’s a thing even though someone else thinks it’s a thing. It’s a Cousins’ Night!

Baby Billy's payday sing-a-long at the Zion's landing resort was such a hilarious prosperity gospel moment. "You're doing so well for somebody who used to be a famous singer long ago." Baby Billy does seem like he'd be a good game show host.

His whole sob story monologue about free drinks and living in a penthouse at the theme park was a great gag

That chop to the throat made me choke on my beer!

I think the moment that almost killed me was when the cousins are embracing, post-Heimlich, and all of the Gemstone kids are slow-motion Having Some Feelings about it, and then the camera pans to BJ who slow-motion gags a bit about the stuff all over his face. Just amazingly done.
