The Weavers note that they're behind a big truck. In her car, Megan Linz remarks, "There's a huge Wide Load in front of us." This, predictably, sets her brothers off on "Wide Load" guffawing of the stupidest kind. It's not that they make fart jokes and fat jokes that I find so irritating -- it's that that seems to be the entire repertoire. That appears to be the entire Linz Brother Sense Of Humor. (1) Fart Jokes. (2) No Fat Chicks. That's how you make yourself an obnoxious cliché. What's more, after Tommy says it, and We Get It, Alex has to say it again, to make sure We Get It Some More. Because wide load, heh-heh. Fucking Chipsters.
In the Bransen car, we learn a new pronunciation: "Dull-lace." One of the Tonyas learns that a US Air flight arrives in Charleston at 10:06 AM. The Gaghans borrow their driver's cell phone as well. They get the same information on the US Air flight. Bill makes reservations on that flight.
3:05 AM. The Paolos. Booooo! I want to open this week's Paolo Smackdown Coverage with a story, which is that I was chitchatting with a friend this week about guys and their moms, and how you don't always want to hear too much about their moms. I made the comment, though, that there are guys who, once you see how they act with their moms, you would never date them, ever, ever, ever. And then, at precisely the same instant, he and I said, "DJ Paolo." And really, if the show makes it a little bit harder for that kid to get a date, this entire season, as the movie says, ain't been in vain for nothing. Anyway, Tony interviews that the country is so great that he wants his kids to embarrass him in every stinking acre of it, or whatever such of a thing. DJ and his mother bicker in the car, unsurprisingly. I tell you, that right there is beyond needing a macro. "DJ and his mother bicker" needs a single symbol, like Prince's name used to be. Or a number. Maybe instead of "DJ and his mother bicker," I could just write, "12."
