I liked that although Amy played a character in one of the earlier scenes that was mocking people who study philosophy, at the end she went on to talk about the existentialist idea that all we have is now, and how we don't have much power over what happens in the world & to us, but we do have control of how we choose to respond to it.
The trope of the college philosophy student mindlessly doubting everything comes from people that we've all met. But it's just like the relatively small proportion of Atheists (or any members of a stereotyped group) who happen to give the rest of us a bad name by being especially loud yet idiotic. It was satisfying, after the pseudo-philosophical dipshit character, that Amy went on to talk about a salient philosophical paradigm.
And that's one of the many reasons why I love you guys.
