Fire the Canon

We finish reading the last three acts of Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, and finally find out if this play is a rom, a com, or a dram.  One of our most high concept episodes yet!  The gang processes their first one star review in a very healthy way.  Theo takes a look inside his own head, and doesn’t like what he sees.  Jackie sweetens a baby.  Rachel is bawlin’ out.  Topics include: a donkey that speaks English, waiter stories, Theo’s routine, theorbos, telephone pictionary, Bob Dylan, James Earl Jones, six ways to get to the moon, the origin of Buzzfeed, Blake Shelton, The Rascal Flatts, Jack the Ripper, Santa Claus, cinq à sept, the Lone Star (Moon) Lover, and How I Met Your Mother.
