Recap / Big City Greens S 1 E 6

Go To

Bill takes the family to the mall to get a family photo taken much to their dismay; Remy’s parents catch him missing his violin lessons to hang with Cricket and Tilly and they must save their friend from being sent to boarding school.

Photo Op:

  • An Aesop: It’s best to see your family happy instead of trying to make them happy yourself.
  • Arc Words: “Surprise!”
  • Bottle Episode: Most of the episode takes place at the mall.
  • Advertisement:
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Cricket goes ballistic when told he has to put on shoes for the family portrait.
  • Imagine Spot: Tilly imagines that the food court is a courtroom where anthropomorphic food put her on trial.
  • A Lesson Learned Too Well: Bill (in an attempt to justify tricking the family into having their picture taken) tells Tilly that lying is okay if it's for a "fun surprise". Tilly spends the rest of the episode telling lies to people, punctuating each one with "Surprise!"
  • Literal-Minded: Tilly takes the term “Food Court” too literally and imagines herself in court with various foods.
  • Match Cut: After Bill announces they’re getting a picture taken, the view flashes from a shocked Cricket, Gramma and Tilly to them sitting on the bench in the same positions wearing their fancy clothes.


Remy Rescue:

  • Absentee Actor: Bill and Gramma don’t appear in this episode.
  • An Aesop: Don’t be afraid to speak up in a crisis.
  • All There in the Script: Remy's parents, Rashida and Russel, are not named in the episode itself.
  • Given Name Reveal: Remy’s last name is revealed to be Remington.
  • Off to Boarding School: Remy’s parents tried to do this to him as a result of missing violin lessons on purpose to hang with Cricket and Tilly.
  • Rocky Roll Call: When Cricket and Remy reunite:
    Cricket: Remy, Remy!
    Remy: Cricket!
    Cricket: Remy!
    Remy: Cricket!
    (Both hug and laugh)
    Tilly: Tilly!
