Two quick thoughts about this excellent episode! One, the writers go the Tall Girl scrunch moves (one step down, one knee on the chair, etc.) totally right — so much so that I was surprised the episode was written by men. Maybe one of them is a short guy himself! I also thought it was funny she was calling herself a “height bigot” because a short guy I went on a date with once accused me of being a “heightist.” (I was like, no, the problem isn’t that you’re short, it’s that I don’t particularly like you.”)
And two, I thought it was cool that there was a no-big-deal, non-derogatory gay joke in this one too — after her coworker (I’m not good on names yet) re-shoots her interview with the writer so that it looks like the writer’s asking HIM to dinner at the end, Mary mentions that a lot of people called in wanting to know how his and the writer’s dinner went. It was a cute joke and no one made a big deal out of it.
Looking forward to catching more eps! —Andi
