Annie: I honestly think this was my favorite episode of Girls, ever.
Connie: A good drug episode can't really be beat, and this seemed like a really hilarious and mostly accurate take. Like, it never felt preachy. No one died, no one got hospitalized, no one got arrested. It was appropriately disgusting and unglamorous. It was a this-could-happen depiction of a typical first-time experience. You do weird things. You want to dance a lot. You might make out with someone gross.
Nathan: They really got to overact in a fun way. It's reminded me of a slightly less over-the-top version of the heroin scene in Wet Hot American Summer or the coke scene in the remake of Starsky & Hutch (which is way funnier than it should have been, if you haven't seen it). The time Shoshanna smoked crack in Bushwick last season was also a high point for the same reason. (Heh, 'high point,' get it?).
Annie: Got it, Nathan.
Nathan: I had no idea AndrewAndrew were a real thing while watching this episode. But they ARE.
Connie: They are indeed! You, too, could go to an AndrewAndrew dance party in West Soho.
Nathan: But would you want to? Learning about AndrewAndrew made me feel sad for our culture.
Nathan: The idea of identical iPad DJs just seems depressing.
Connie: To their (its? are they a singular?) credit, they came up with that gimmick when iPads first came out, and it felt much cooler back then.
Nathan: It just sounds like something from Hipster Runnoff. I had a roommate named Andrew who sublet his room for a summer to two guys named Andrew. They lived in bunk beds and played Madden on XBOX all day and rarely emerged. The room was like 18 square feet. I bet that's what AndrewAndrew live like when they're not DJing. This city has entirely too many Andrews.
Connie: I can definitely see that club scene with Icona Pop playing in the background becoming as iconic as the Robyn scene during the first episode.
Nathan: If Girls wins at the Golden Globes next year, it'll be announced with that Icona Pop song, which is great. Icona Pop is great.
Annie: NATHAN. Yes. They will be announced with that song, and the crowd will go wild and we'll all be wearing mesh tank tops.
Connie: Lena's wearing those fluoro mesh American Apparel tanks the way that they're advertised to be worn though — props for authenticity
Nathan: Yeah totally. Dov Charney was like "Finally! She gets it."
