  • Yet another perfectly written episode where Peggy's ego makes her oblivious to the real world.

    Peggy is a piece of work. Reality is something to be ignored because she's convinced that her stink don't stink. No one knows Spanish as well as she does, no one writes newspaper columns as well, and no woman is more feminine and alluring that her. That's why she becomes fast friends with the gals she meets in this episode; they're as glamorous as she THINKS she is. This episode is another wonderfully written story that gets its laughs from the characters being true to themselves and acting exactly like they're supposed to. Peggy is exposed to wonderful people she would generally avoid if her guard was up, but since she's temporarily blinded by her own greatness, she makes new friends and, unlike most of her adventures, they aren't trying to take advantage of her. (Kudos to the writer for making these characters actual people instead of doing the usual lazy crossdresser/drag queen caricature.) Hank's response to all of this is classic. Unlike his usual horrified reaction to everything that doesn't fit into his rigid brain (when he makes that great "Mwwwaaaah!" noise), he goes into total shutdown mode. Watching him deal with crossdressers without actually dealing with crossdressers (because Hank doesn't not want to even "go there".) is priceless.
