Other than taking a while before noticing it was Tony Danza and later the scene with the kids and the cops in front of the liquor store, I felt this episode fell a bit short of what could have been.

When Ilana stopped her phone call long enough to bowl a strike. Perfect.

I liked Abbi & Ilana being together for once but I guess I wanted a bit more misadventure. I like when Broad City veers into just-surreal-enough and this didn't quite get there for me. Some funny scenes, though, but mostly it didn't feel like it quite hung together. I might like it better on rewatch, though.

I thought the dance routine at the end was perfect. That was worth the entire episode for me.

This one hit home for me because I HAD the Princess Diana beanie baby (which my parents were able to get because they were members of a Cracker Barrel frequent eater club...they got a letter from "Uncle Hershel" or some such asking if they wanted to preorder one. It was weird). I sold my whole beanie baby collection to get my fam a TV maybe a year later...this show is LIFE

I loved all the Sleater-Kinney in the soundtrack this episode. I can never have enough Sleater-Kinney in my life.

Hmmm... between the Hilary episode and this, I'm starting to fade in my intense devotion for this show. Some really smart and fairly funny moments, but didn't gel or make me laugh super hard. Does it pick back up after this?
