One of my favorite things about every episode that I've always been able to rely on for a sudden injection of pure happiness, is the loosely structured banter that occurs at the beginning of each show, i.e. Candy's bit about her husband ("right ladies?"), Seedy and her boyfriend (God), and Cora's love of seamen [feral scream of lust], I love how each of these introductory type bits are worked into conversation.
However, in this episode and the one previous to it this wonderful segment has been transplanted into the song. When I heard the song in the previous episode my heart sank, but I was relieved to hear the redundant but greatly appreciated recounting of the sacred intro-jokes. But to my dismay, in this episode they were only in the song!!!!! My heart has been shattered.
I will still listen faithfully to every episode, but I will feel the empty space where my beloved comedy trinity should rightly be somewhere around the beginning of the show as one looks upon the empty seat where a deceased loved one should sit. Or maybe I'm just wrong and afraid of change. I'll probably get over it.
Stay classy, girls.
