  • The Loins Sleep Tonight: Bojack finds himself unable to perform in bed with the manatee reporter, mainly because a comment she made in passing reminded him of his disastrous encounter with Penny two episodes prior.
  • No Sense of Direction: Todd manages to get lost in the same hotel hallway all episode long.
  • Once More, with Clarity!: Sort of.
