  • Love this one

    I just love this one. I guess part of it is because I always like a good Saffy/Patsy throwdown like there is in this one and when they all get locked in one room.

    How freakin' hilarious was it when Patsy finally came to realize that the actor playing her was a guy. It does make sense after all because she was a guy for a while too.

    I think I also like this one alot because it really does help bring the fact into focus that Edina truly is a horrible horrible mother and a despicable person in general and yet it is so hard not to love her and all of the drunken excess that follows.moreless

    What was so funny about this episode was just about everything. The characters that played Eddy and Pats were so funny. I won't tell you who played them--go watch it. There is a great sequence when they talk about Saffy as a little girl.



    I really do not want to spoil all that goes on in this episode. Bo's wig, Bubble dressed as a fairy, Patsy telling the speaker to shut up, Eddy and her purse, and Saffy saying every line in the sentence. There is a good part in the end that involves a kitty. Please, watch this episode!moreless
