#132 When We Had Gone Astray


Have I mentioned that I see all of the dialogue in the “Holiday Special” as being delivered in an over-the-top, jokey fashion, and that I bet there is a laugh track?

This is how I justify the sometimes subpar writing that comes as a result of my rushing, rushing, rushing like a busy little bee. And (from now on), sticking more than usually close to the source material, in all its string-of-non-escalating-semi-conflicts glory.

The albums are Big Brother and the Holding Company - Cheap Thrills, Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath, Blood Sweat & Tears - Greatest Hits, and (super-subtly, in the background, though it’s the one Lance is listening to right now), Deep Purple - Nobody’s Perfect. I don’t know why Jeria has all this guy music from the 70s (okay, the DP is a live album from ‘88, but it’s a reuniting of the 70s lineup). She was born in like ‘74. Maybe she got them from her dad.

Satan is reading a blank newspaper!

ESKIMO: Ooh, record player.
LANCE: Yeah, I’ve really been getting into Jeria’s devil music.
RECORD: Ain’t nobody gonna take my car…
We see a spread of album covers: Blood Sweat & Tears; Big Brother and the Holding Company; Black Sabbath.
ESKIMO: This is just rock and r–
LANCE (clapping a hand over her mouth): Shh! We live in a basement now!
LANCE: Closer to… (points downward)
Cut to: Satan reading a newspaper
SATAN: Just because I can hear you doesn’t mean I care.
Cut back to Lance and Eskimo
ESKIMO: This’ll be good at the party. I just hope we can get this place in shape by then.
LANCE: What day is it?
ESKIMO: The day of the party or today? …Never mind, I just answered both questions. Have you ever heard of the “ten second tidy”?
