Weird al dating
Weird Al's reprise of "Where's the Bathroom" made me pause the recording and laugh out loud for a ridiculously long time, and Greg's discomfort with the date was honestly the first time I have liked Skylar in the role.
Storywise I liked that they went low-key with the intimacy between Greg and Rebecca after the high-flown romance with Josh and Nathaniel.
I do love how they are working so many callbacks to previous episodes in to these last few. I still love Santino, but I like the way Skylar has put his own spin on the character.
Speaking of which, when the preview for the “series finale” came on I legitimately got tears in my eyes. (I would love to see them bring Santino back and have a musical duo where Greg is wrestling with his inner turmoils.
(The resulting bitter ballad featured many classic kiss-off lines, with Al declaring that he would rather “spend eternity eating shards of broken glass,” “rip out [his] intestines with a fork,” have his “blood sucked out by leeches,” “dive into a swimming pool filled with double-edged razorblades” or “get a 100,000 paper cuts on [his] face” than spend one more minute with his ex.
But it was a certain particularly nasty line — “I’d rather clean out all the bathrooms in Grand Central Station with my tongue than spend one more minute with you” — that got beeped out by Dick Clark and ABC., one of those primetime rock ‘n’ roll shows in the ’80s … We just wanted to let you know.’ I said, ‘Well, do what you gotta do, I guess.’“Then I watched it on TV, on the broadcast — because that’s what you did back then.
Tonight I learned that the “priest school - pre school” joke will never fail to make me LOL.
“Back in the ’90s, I had a polka medley, and I wanted to include ‘Buddy Holly’ by Weezer,” Al recalls.
