- Put yourself first, girl,
Worry 'bout yourself.
Wear fake eyelids, just for yourself.
So when dudes see you
Put yourself first.
They'll be like damn, you're hot
Let's buy a house in Portland.
1x10 - "I'm Back at Camp with Josh!"
Written by Jack Dolgen, directed by Michael Schultz. Original airdate 2/1/2016.
"When Rebecca finds out Josh is a volunteer at a camp for at-risk teens, she realizes it is the perfect opportunity to remind Josh about the amazing times they had together at camp. Meanwhile, Darryl tries to re-capture his youth by throwing a party, where Greg encounters someone from his past."
"Having a Few People Over" (sung by Pete Gardner)
- Affectionate Parody: Of Electronic Dance Music.
- Broken Record
- Limited Lyrics Song: All of the lyrics are "Having a few people over" and then, finally, Darryl saying, "At this point youre probably aware Im having a few people over."
- Mundane Made Awesome: Darryl laying out food and fluffing his pillows for his get together...all while EDM dance music plays and lights strobe around him.
"Dear Joshua Felix Chan" (sung by Rachel Bloom)
- Grand Romantic Gesture: Rebecca assumed that reading this old love letter would make clear to Josh that she still feels the same way about him that she did when she was 16, and reciprocate. It doesn't exactly backfire: if it had backfired, he would have realised how she feels, and been scared or repelled by her. Instead, he dramatically misses the point and thinks it's hilarious.
- Love Letter
- Love Letter Lunacy: Josh obviously thinks that Rebecca is telling him about this letter because she finds it funny, while she herself still finds it romantic and is hurt when he laughs.
- Musicalis Interruptus: Josh's laugh interrupted the song and Rebecca refused to continue reading the letter.
- Oblivious to Love: Josh so hard.
- Silly Love Songs
"Put Yourself First" (sung by Jazz Raycole, Marisa Devila and Lulu Antariksa)
- Be Yourself: A parody of such songs, basically saying "Be yourself, but be a sexy version of yourself so guys will like you."
- Bellisario's Maxim: "Don't think about it too hard, too too hard."
- Deconstructive Parody: Of Fifth Harmony and other girl groups like them.
- Fanservice: Which turns into Fan Disservice when they pierce Rebecca's ear and there's blood.
- Girl Group
- Hypocritical Humor: The humor is derived from the fact that the song is telling Rebecca to put herself first while telling her that she has to be sexy for a guy, thus putting herself second. On a further level, being sexy for guys makes the girls feel empowered, so they are able to tell themselves that technically they are putting themselves first, while preferring not to dwell on the fact that their feeling of empowerment depends on guys finding them sexy (see Bellisario's Maxim).
- Makeover Montage
- Pep-Talk Song: Parodied.
- Self Empowerment Anthem: The song is all supposed to empower Rebecca...to become sexy. Because being sexy is empowering and makes guys want you.
- Take That!: The photographer looks like Terry Richardson and he's wearing a shirt that says Male Gaze.
Tropes in this episode:
- Not So Different: In reflection of Rebecca's insistence that women need to stop obsessing over men and get in touch with their inner feminine power, we see Greg try to argue that men should stop obsessing over women and do something Rated M for Manly instead. Neither one of them proves able to live up to that ideal.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: A huge donation gets Rebecca a position as a camp counselor after being told in no uncertain terms that she cannot.
