With the Spring 2012 semester coming to a close, we are contractually obligated to have our 15 year-old intern Marissa Wompler visit. I cannot reiterate how much this is not our choice, especially now that she's accompanied by her faculty mentor Miss Listler. We try to make the best of it with the return of Jukebox Jury and a game of What Am I Thinking?, but try as we might we can't seem to pry Marissa away from her constant need to yell and discuss her changing body. Once again, our apologies.

OMG YES. Yesterday I watched the pilot and first episode of Best Friends Forever and they were great!
I also loved these ladies on their HDTGM appearances. And of course Wompler is a CBB fav. Can't wait to give this a listen after I finish my taxes (which I forgot was a thing)!

Is this not working for anyone else? It's not loading correctly but I can hear the previews perfectly.

It looks like Libsyn's player is under maintenance but as of right now the streaming player is working fine!

No wonder so many dudes want to stick it in, just through the first half hour, Marissa is about to pass Cyber Thug and Gellman as the greatest guest ever. The CDR/CBB intern Whomps up the Jams.

When Saucerman says "go show up to Jessica's house to record the shows" at 13:31, he is of course referring to Jessica Fletcher: since Marissa disappears so abruptly and completely from her intern duties, it will require the wit and wisdom of the Western world's greatest detective to find out where she is.

Then, in a dizzying series of events, Saucerman and Fletcher must spring Wompler from detention, get her to Fletcher's home studio (Jessica Fletcher also records award-winning audio books), and of course explore and explain the mysterious death of Engineer Dustin (Harris Wittels did it).

Do I get a No-Prize?

I think this might help answer some questions raised in this episode:

"We were both young when I first saw you.
I close my eyes and the flashback starts:
I'm standing there on a balcony in summer air.

See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns.
See you make your way through the crowd
And say, "Hello,"
Little did I know...

That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles,
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet"
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you, "Please don't go"
And I said...

Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all that's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess,
It's a love story, baby, just say, "Yes".

So I sneak out to the garden to see you.
We keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew
So close your eyes... escape this town for a little while.
Oh, oh.

'cause you were Romeo - I was a scarlet letter,
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet"
But you were everything to me,
I was begging you, "Please don't go"
And I said...

Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all that's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess.
It's a love story, baby, just say, "Yes".

Romeo, save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel.
This love is difficult but it's real.
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess.
It's a love story, baby, just say, "Yes".

Oh, oh.

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around.
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town.
And I said...

Romeo, save me, I've been feeling so alone.
I keep waiting for you but you never come.
Is this in my head? I don't know what to think.
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said...

Marry me, Juliet, you'll never have to be alone.
I love you, and that's all I really know.
I talked to your dad ‒ go pick out a white dress
It's a love story, baby, just say, "Yes".

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

'cause we were both young when I first saw you"

Aww yeah. I've been watching Best Friends Forever and I am pleasantly surprised. Although Jessica's character can get a little grating at times on the show, but I think that's the point.

I watched the "BFF" pilot, and liked it well enough. But every time St. Clair spoke, I could only hear Marissa Wompler talking about boners.

Hats off to Gutterballs... I must say, I'm jealous.
Check out my podcast! A friend and I watch an old show and do some bits.

I'm starting to doubt the quality of the education Marissa Wompler is getting at old Marina Del Ray High School.

Great episode! Happy to have been a part of it (that Rachel was this moi). Marissa's enthusiasm is contagious.
Take the Magna Carta, and throw it in the garbage.
