Backstage, Joy asks Earl if he made this happen. He says he did, because he knew she wasn't a nada and wanted everyone else to know it, too. She takes his list and crosses this item off. Darnell comes in and tells her they have to go because agents are about to swarm, which isn't as fun as the movies make it seem. Joy tells Earl that even though she divorced him, kicked him out of his house, and tried to kill him multiple times, it all came out of love. And the cheating? What did that come from? But Earl just says he knows. Randy tells Darnell he's going to miss them. Randy and Darnell get into an argument about whether dogs with legs like shrimps would be called shrogs or drimps. Darnell says they shouldn't do this again, and they hug goodbye. Darnell says goodbye to Earl, who doesn't say goodbye or even call him Crabman. Joy tells him goodbye and hugs him, but he doesn't say anything. Randy's like, "You didn't say goodbye!" after they leave. Earl says he'll tell them next time. If there is a next time, dummy! Oh, no, I'm channeling Joy.
Seriously, though, we know they can't be leaving the show, can they? So ... how will they get back? I need to know. Unfortunately, there's no new episode next week, so we have at least a two-week wait until it's resolved.
