You’ve heard our opening theme song. “The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of other things– of shoes and ships and sealing wax; of cabbages and kings!”
Well, that’s kind of where this episode ended up going. We went in with the idea of talking about field trips or road trips, but took several detours along the way. First off, Keith’s papacy continues on and he lacks the fezes (fezii? Multiple instances of a fez) sent in tribute to him as per his demands. There’s a lot of talk of DIE HARD and what makes DIE HARD feel like DIE HARD and what doesn’t. You will learn the dread secrets of the Real-Life-Baby-Doll-enthusiasts. You will come to know of a boy named Herman who was not actually named Herman. You will experience the raw and powerful hate a young (and apparently, still, an older) Keith Field felt for a group of schoolmates he referred to only as “The Bibliophiles.”
Also, somewhere in there: Field Trips.
