Phyllis “Situational Them” Fletcher is legally allowed to be on LRB again, and Bobby, Mike, Meredith and Ann take full advantage by hosting a Fletch-themed AMA instead of producing any original content. Shame on all of you who didn’t submit questions, and less shame on those of you who did. Phyllis is a tidal wave of sound advice. Bobby’s cup runneth over with job opportunities. Mike is up against a deluge of spelling errors. Meredith is baking Victoria sponges in her money puddle. And Ann is walkin’ on sunshine despite the fact that—thanks to a troublesome toilet—her money puddle is a literal puddle.
It was a great week of TBTL, with guests Nick “Self-Proclaimed Psychopath” Jarin and Phyllis “Urban Dictionary” Fletcher joining the guys, and Mike, Meredith and Ann are ready to break down everything that happened. Along the way, we settle on a new nickname for Meredith, discuss how to know when to leave an “escape room” party immediately, lay down some ice cream cone law, and find out that both our lady scientists are terrible pen pals (and possibly also terrible people). As a bonus, we give our own answers to this week’s Hey Dummies question about celebrity navigation voices. Plus, the ongoing fabric scissors controversy threatens to split our hosts apart, and Mike has a strange Sting-related episode during the show that has us slightly concerned.
For her Phinal Phyllis Phave Phriday, Phyllis Fletcher joins Mike for a listen back to times when alleged “woo girl” Jen Flash Andrews was thrown out of restaurants, and in one instance, given up by a tell-tale pen. Mike shares some of his own delinquent dining behavior through the years (with apologies to Hoagy’s Corner), and hits Fletch with one more round of his patent-pending gotcha segment, While We Have You.
Through the magic of advanced planning, Phyllis Fletcher joins Bobby for a listen back to a pair of Luke’s cringeworthy stories from 2009. Between the awkward phone call from his alleged fiancée’s best friend, to the woman who insisted on helping him pay for some Dick’s, these gems from the radio days will really make you think about the perception of people around you, and that moment in time when the truth sets in. Not to be outdone, Bobby shares his own pregnant pause, and we break down the perils of a casual dress code.
Deep in the depths of both their souls and an undisclosed downstairs half-bath, unabashed 90 Day Fiancé fan Phyllis Fletcher joins Nice Lady Christy Wise on a trip down to the Shameber, where Luke stalks an old on-air co-host, Jen imitates a supercool indie-rocker, and Sean watches the Wayans brothers in whiteface.
