Stuntin' Like My Daddy

Made You Look

  • Rue and Jules give a helpful seminar on the finer points of solicited dick pics, complete with a slide show.
    "Some people say that eyes are the windows to the soul. I disagree. I think it's your dick. and how you fucking photograph it."
    • The Freeze Frame just before the cut-away has Rue giving a hilarious "Well, actually..." expression.
    • Throughout the slide show, Jules does a spot-on impersonation of a bored teaching assistant.
    • As Rue goes through what the difference between "terrifying" and "horrifying" is.
    Rue: Uncapped deodorant touching the floor, horrifying. Jug of lotion, terrifying. Dirty fingernails... (disgusted swallowing) horrifying. A medieval sword? Run for your fucking life terrifying.
  • Cassie saying how she face-times with McKay every night and then being teased about the two of them falling in love by her friends whom she tells to shut-up. Gilligan Cut to her and McKay being Sickeningly Sweethearts during facetime telling each other how they liked the other more.

  • Kat manages to blunder into the lucrative world of online domming after a pervert shows her his absurdly small penis and mistakes her nervous laughter for an attempt at humiliation... which he gets off on.
  • Rue and Jules set out to create topless photos of Jules that "tasteful" and "classy" but still look like selfies.
    "I want, like, good, professional nudes. Like, classy, but not too arty, like, I put very little thought or effort into them, but they could also be in fucking MOMA."

Shook One: Pt II

'03 Bonnie and Clyde

    Leslie: (gives her daughter a skeptical look) Okay.

  • Rue getting a lip tattoo from Ashtray, and then he turns to Jules asking if she was ready. Jules' reaction literally reads, "You've got to be fucking kidding me, is this really happening?" Ashtray assures Jules that it was all good and that he's been "doing this for years".
    Jules: I love you, Rue, but there's no fucking way I'm doing that. (cut to a close up of Jules' face as Ashtray does the inside of her lip and Rue holds her for support)

The Next Episode

  • Lexi dressed as Bob Ross at the Halloween party in the sixth episode.
  • The interrogation scene between Rue, Lexi, and one of the McKay twins at the Halloween party. Especially since it's a send-up of The Wire with several shout-outs to characters from the show.
  • Jules displays some Hidden Depths when she manages to toss out a few lines of Shakespeare while utterly shitfaced.

The Trials and Tribulations of Trying to Pee While Depressed

  • While going through a manic episode, Rue imagines that she's in a Police Procedural where she and Lexi are trying to figure out what Nate did to Jules. Somehow, they actually manage to figure out almost exactly what happened between Jules and Nate.
    • Later, Rue goes to try to explain her theory to Fezco and ends up rambling incoherently about how she's like the Morgan Freeman character in every thriller. Fezco just stares at her before finally just saying, "Word."

And Salt the Earth Behind You

  • Rue’s brief fantasy of her ideal retribution against Nate tied to a chair and on fire as she shoots him with a gun. It’s as darkly hilarious as it is satisfying.
  • Lexi yells something incoherent towards Kat and Ethan after they finally get their Big Damn Kiss. When her friends ask her what she said, she admits that she has no idea.
