This night of comedy started out on a high note, faltered a bit, and then finished decently. We started with
Liz got married! It was super fun, and she pulled out her infamous Leia costume, after much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Her ex, Dennis, he of ‘dummy’ fame, adopted a kid with his wife, and Liz laments her looooong wait on the list with no kid to her name. Dennis was apparently on the list for all of two months, with Liz finds grossly unfair, so she sarcastically suggests marrying Cris, who unsarcastically agrees. They decide to go through with it at the justice of the peace, win sweats and whatnot, the next day. Liz gets all emotional and whatnot, and finally decides that she DOES want to be a princess, so they get all set up thanks to Jack, who manages to get Tony Bennett to sing.
In other news, Tracy is very upset: Dr. Spaceman has told him, due to all the parts replacement, he is in perfect health. Tracy takes this to mean he’s not going to die any day now, and must subsequently plan for the future. He does this by turning his chainsaw hat fund into his kid’s college fund, and reading scripts that people submit to his production company, for starters. But then! He gets hit(lightly) by Liz’s cab, and realizes that he could still die at any time, so it’s back to immature behavior, woo!
This was a fun episode. There really wasn’t a whole lot of action beyond the two main plots, but that was just fine by me. Kenneth and Jenna’s plots have all be pretty crappy as of late. I got a couple of funny lines for you:
Dennis, after Liz accuses him of being racist: “Yeah right Liz, the guy with the black kid is racist!”
Dr. Spaceman, after declaring Tracy 100% healthy: “I don’t have a pamphlet to help you get through this…but I do have one full of vaginas.” “I’ll take it!”
