    Good Trouble

    I've said it before, but I really don't want Davia and Dennis to become a couple. I love their frienship and really hope it stays that way. Are we supposed to be on Callie's side over all of this? Because I'm really not. Maybe I'm finally too old for this show? I mean, listen, I'm a social justice advocate. I go to protests, I write letters to appropriate people, I will stand up for people who don't have a voice of their own. But even bright eyed and bushy tailed 20 somethings don't really think they can take on an entire system or a person like a conservative jude and change them, do they? We don't need to live in an echo chamber, and it is good to get the experience, but she knew what she was signing up for. And to go in an yell at him like she did is just so unprofessional. You want to yell and scream, go to a protest or a march. You want to be an influence on someone like a judge, you do it in a professional manner and don't yell at him. Also, I have heard that it is not terribly uncommon to fail the bar the first time you take it. I'm sure it is devastating, I had to take an exam for my profession as well and was terrified that I would fail. But the bar is known for not always passing the first time, right?

    S09.E02: Something Borrowed, Something New

    Did I miss something with Matt? I actually watched the casting show this year, which I don't always and his extreme reaction to his parents divorce seems odd to me. Full disclosure, my parents are still married after 40+ years so I have no idea how I would react. However, for them to not even be told about the wedding I feel like something major must have happened, more than just a marriage ending. There's a bigger story here and my therapist brain wants to know!

    I had the same thought. My wedding dress was white too. And not for the same reason as Iris. All of my friends have also worn white dresses. It's really not a big deal.

    S19. E08: Young and Addicted

    brett's relapse and behavior sadly did not surprise me. His family's attitude toward everything was not helpful at all. Morgan needs some self confidence, stat! It seems like she really developed some while she was in treatment and I hope her husband either gets help or stays far away from her.

    S19 Ep7, Family of Addicts

    I don't think I have ever uttered "holy shit" so many times in an Intervention episode, with the exception of maybe Christy. I was not surprised Sean relapsed, but it was heartbreaking to watch. He was genuinely so mad at himself right afterward. I could not believe the transformation of the dad. He looked like an entirely different person. I'm also not a huge fan of Donna, but she did a great job shutting down grandma last night. Someone needed to do it, and grandma wasn't responding to anyone being gentle with her. I can't imagine anyone else handling this particular family.

    S33.E13: Final Destination

    I was so irritated when Cara said "Behind every woman acting crazy is a man who made her that way." UGH!! You are your own person! Own your shit, woman. No man "made" you crazy. For all your hard ass feminist stuff, you sure did set that back with that one little asinine comment. I just can't with her anymore.

    S31.E02: Knock the Newbie Out of Us

    It almost seems like he is putting on an act though. I think it might only be a matter of time until we get a meltdown. He and Christie seem drugged or something. Christie saying that the elephants don't seem to like being yelled at and Colin being all zen is just strange.

    S33.E12: Lost in Translation

    Was anyone surprised by Turbo's story about taping down someone on a flight? Because OF COURSE he did! I love him.

    Good Trouble

    Yes, please! I actually love the way that was handled, with him knowing he needed help and getting it. The scene with the two of them was wonderful. Please keep them friends, pretty please? Not everything on every show has to be a love story.

    S03.E18: Her

    I think Tess saying "I'm not ready" is just as simple as "I'm not ready to say goodbye". I don't know that it is much deeper than that. I know if I was going to say goodbye to a dying relative I would likely not be ready either. Is anyone ever ready to say goodbye to someone? Call me simple or easily entertained, but I laughed a few times during Deja's speech to Randall. I liked it. I thought it was well done and she showed some real savviness with people by getting him to drive her there. It also speaks to what we have been told is her great writing skill. She has a way with words and used them well. I am so, so glad that they had Zoe leave Kevin and not give in to wanting kids. As someone who is also child free by choice, I hate the "you would be such a good mom" speech. I interact with kids every day (I'm a therapist for children and adolescents) and I treat them with kindness, respect, and try and instill a little bit of fun and happiness in their life. I have nieces and nephews that I adore and love spending time with. That does not mean I want to or need to be a mom. Not wanting to have children of your own so often on TV means you have to hate kids or be completely incompetent on how to interact with them. In real life, this is not the case. I wanted to throw my phone at the TV when Kevin was saying how great Zoe was with the girls and how he thinks she would be a great mom. And I'm glad she didn't change her mind. Did anyone else find the elderly, dying Rebecca super creepy, or was it just me? Something about her eyes was just really scary.

    S33.E06: In Love and War

    Turbo has the best soundbites, for real. I don't remember the quote tonight, but it was something about "one man fighting, another man fighting, maybe someone will die?" Just so non-chalant about it.

    S03.E15: The Waiting Room

    For the past 20 years or so, two of my best friends and I have had this thing where we try to find a food that doesn't go with cheese or peanut butter, so when Miguel pulled that question out last night I yelled at my television and immediately sent a text to my friends. They (kind of) stole my idea! But the "end" of his game was stupid. In our version, condiments don't count as food, so you can't use ranch as a food.

    The Cast in Other Roles

    I saw her in a very old episode of ER where she plays one of the workers at the hospital day care taking care of "Little Suzie" (Sherry Stringfield's niece, daughter of Kathleen Wilhoite's character). It was very odd to see her as a nurturing and loving character in the traditional way and not the Mrs. Kim way.

    S.08 E.08 The Past and the Furious

    Did I hear that AJ went to college in New Haven? So...did he go to Yale? Did this get totally bypassed somehow?
  15. I've watched this show a billion times, in particular season 4, which is my favorite. I am JUST NOW realizing why Lorelai was nicknamed umlaut at camp. Wow. Take my Master's Degree back please.
