plus i can't believe he forgot (until now) that her mom was cooking/burning three thick and thirsty bath towels for supper. seems like an important detail.

 

also, kudos to PFT for showing up in character

I was on the fence about this "Jon Hamm" character until he said, "I beg your pardon, I love a Charleston Chew." :wub:

 

P.S. I will be voting for this one at year end. I doubt anyone else cares, but this is a note to myself. Zack Reino getting Donny Drapes and PFT to talk about Pokemon for 30 minutes puts it over the top.

Something about Jon Hamm saying "I don't think Charmeleon's okay" that makes me laugh.

It feels like it's been a while, but the general template of "Scott walks a recurring character through the key points of their backstory" is one of the most reliable sources of laughs in the podcast world.

The "Blue Jasmine" reference warmed my bones to the core.

It bugged me that they didn't realise that when Al informs the sniveling worm Carl that his daughter's name is a clumsy portmanteau, he wouldn't have been hairless and thus would have done so using his original voice. And that pathetic coward still thanked him for it.

I just heard something that reminded me of an extremely funny moment from this episode - Scott and Jon were talking about movies named after places in the Middle East, and one of them cited "Roman J. Israel, Esq.".
