Just rewatched the whole episode and here are some things that stood out even more the 2nd time through
(On not returning glass casserole dishes in a timely manner)”Other people are dying and their relatives are getting food in Tupperware”
To Bev, after she said a mother should never have to bury their child “Mom, you’re 92 you’re going to bury us all”
Chuck’s, deep legit concern about the “truck through the house thing” not just being an expression
“Seen a little too much action in Nam, Joey?” 1000% spot on Dan Conner
The gag of them all sitting around the couch was top notch - I cackled the first time I watched (DJ’s “my ass is wet!” also made me laugh)
The scene on the porch between Marcy and Dan is some of the most honest, fucking deeply painfully relatable acting I’ve ever seen -on this show or any other.
The convo in the garage between Dan and Darlene was a little meta, but just this once it’s understandable.
In my family the corn holders go in a small ziplock bag in the silverware drawer/on the outside of the utensil holder thingy
Dan helping Mark pick his seat mate was fantastic - as an adult I’m so team Enrique but I guess it makes sense that he’s got a thing for dark and brooding lol.
DJ and the girls in the kitchen was another moment that was just so authentic to the characters and the situation that I’m really really looking forward to seeing how things play out.
Finally that last scene, just give Goodman all the awards please.
Honestly I’m so happy with how this episode turned out, here’s hoping they can keep the quality consistent/even better than this episode.
