Back at the Goat, Jim's telling Molly that he's about to finish the job at Stuckey Bowl, and he wants to know if she'll be around. She doesn't think she can make it. He says it's no problem, and she wants to go home. Jim says, "Fine," and tells her not to let the door hit her in the ass. She leaves. He thinks for a second and then runs after her. Once outside, he asks Molly if she's okay and she says she's fine. Then she recants that whole "fine" crap and says that it's not his fault, but she doesn't want to go down Buddy Road again. She doesn't wanna traverse Friend Street or cruise down Chum Avenue or lollygag down Good Pal Boulevard either. So she suggests that they just shake hands and get on with their lives. Jim looks at her long and hard. Then he bends down and kisses her long and hard -- the kind of kiss that dreams are made of and shy couples eventually share. He smiles, says, "Goodnight Buddy," and walks back inside. Molly stands there, then laughs and walks away.
Woooohooooooo! Molly finally got her some!
I really liked this episode. Even if I hated it, I'd still think it was great strictly for Phil's backflip, which I have now watched at least a dozen times, snickering every time. There was no Principal Jackass...no "Ed Catches Up With Carol On The Street" scene...no musical montage at the end...so it was kind of hard to recap. And please: I like Molly. I'm fatter than Molly. I only pick on Molly because it's my job here. It's nothing personal. So some of you just need to get over that hump and take what I say with a grain of salt. Or, in Molly's case, a bag of sugar.
Next week, Ed's ex-wife comes to Stuckeyville. Wacky hijinks ensue!
