Pete was hitting home runs in this episode.

It was really cool how Esposito made a big deal about what pronoun to address Jenner with, only to flip-flop and change the pronoun to the other side in the middle of the episode. Very progressive. You can really feel the tenderness and care.

I also liked when she undercut the dicks being useless conversation by acting like the guys started it, except she did.

Oh and the super fun part where the fan came up with the fairly interesting Gemini/two personalities comment and she immediately no-butted it by saying 'that's not how transgender works'.

Oh man... Everything about Paul telling the fake ET flashback, realizing ET wasn't Universal, calling it out, and then re-telling the story differently was the best.

"He looked like a sack of potatoes." (Not an exact quote, I know.)

This was great. I could listen to this stuff all day.

Ian's views are totally in sync with how I see this stuff. The rules get people on the same page, they develop your skills, and then if you're good enough, you'll be good enough to break the rules. That's how everything works.

You can't just waltz in and be a game changing, transcendent person. Most people aren't. No school should expect that, or base their teaching strategy around the idea that everyone has that special thing. It's a waste of resources and effort.

The UCB seems to have a pretty flawless system in terms of streamlining and freedom.


Now it's just me, but instead of that boxing analogy I would've gone with more basketball (even though he said he only watched briefly). Basketball is both individual, and team based.

There are so many fundamentals that you need to learn to be successful, but when you're good enough you can ignore them and actually benefit. Take Rajon Rondo for example. His basketball IQ is next level. He sees the court and passes masterfully. Yet when he takes a layup, he takes off on the wrong foot, which throws the defense off. Something so subtle can throw the defense (audience) while scoring (getting a laugh).
