Marry Me – Scary Me
Marry Me – Scary Me
I haven’t been posting nearly as much as I should have, well, let’s face it, it’s been years other than my Blood Punch post. It’s time to start things back up since the fall programs aren’t too far into their seasons!
I’m LOVING the new show Marry Me! I like the way it’s presented and I love the characters! I also, for whatever reason, love that there’s no real or fake audience laughter! For me, shows that do this, are coming across on their own talent and not a “tell when to laugh” type of thing.
This episode is Marry Me – Scary Me.
Annie and Jake find out that the Halloween party that is their go to for Halloween, left them off of the guest list. Instead of contacting the person in charge of the list, Kyle, they opt for a more mature and grown up way to celebrate Halloween. The “mom to the bone” tenant in their building, Julie, runs the heavy handed, micro managed Halloween for the building. Annie and Jake would like to have a haunted house but quickly get shut down by Julie. Let’s face it, anyone that won’t allow a haunted house with one of the reasons given being that you can’t let kids feel grapes making them think it’s eyeballs because grapes are a choking hazard…*bleh*. Julie is the type of personality that thinks that a non-mom has no place in arranging anything for kids because a non-mom can’t have maternal instincts. Come on, Jules, there’s a reason kids play with baby dolls…it’s our built in nature to nurture! With their haunted house idea dashed to bits, Annie is upset and is ready to prove Julie wrong but Jake seems find an suggests they try to get on the list for the HallowRage party that they didn’t receive the invite to for this year. Annie suggests that Jake call Kyle and tell him that they’re going to have a haunted house “because Julie’s a bitch!”.
Annie and Jake have it all planned out. If Julie shows up at their apartment for Halloween, it looks like they’re just handing out candy but, behind the curtain, is their haunted house…their “world of terror”.
In the meantime, Gil and Kay are making arrangements to trick-or-treat but they need costumes that hide the fact that they’re adults. Gil has found the street that gives out the best candy…full sized candy bars, people! The street has so much candy that the New England Journal of Medicine has named it the Diabetes Cluster. Kay admits that she’s always had dreams of full sized candy bars and knows she could always buy them herself but she says the candy tastes better when you beg for it. They are Spiderman and…what is that? I can’t tell what Kay is. They get to the neighborhood and are disappointed. One house gives them pickles. Turns out that Gil’s ex-wife lives in the neighborhood and he just wanted to go their to see if she’s lonely.
Annie and Jake are dressed as Lucy and Ricky. Kids ring the doorbell and are quickly invited into the haunted house where they’re completely thrilled and Annie and Jake are very pleased with themselves.
Gil and Kay approach the house of his ex-wife…whom he worries is lonely. They get to the door and his ex opens the door…she’s having a party. Kay points out that it’s good his wife is happy but Gil thinks she’s “too happy”.
Back at the haunted house, Annie is telling the kids she’s going to cut the food into sizes that they can’t choke on but the kids are quite rowdy. She realizes that the kids are 5 minutes over the time that trick-or-treating was to end per Julie’s rules. The kids head out. HOWEVER, Julie is at the door! She walks in and sees “11 choking hazards”. Annie quickly shuts her down pointing out nothing happened and Jule’s leaves with her bee-tail between her legs.
Dennah calls (she’s dressed like a slut…her words not my judgement). It turns out that Gil and Kay ARE indeed invited to the party but they’ve lost interest in coming. Dennah says that it’s too loud. Odd what age does to use, isn’t it? Two other girls are dressed like Dennah.
Annie and Jake are about to have sex when they discover a little boy, dressed as a robot, in their bedroom. Aaannnddd, he wants a sleepover! Talk about a scary Halloween! Jake tries to get the little boy to tell them where he lives so that he can take him home but the kid is tight lipped until Annie gives him $20. Turns out, he gives them an apartment number that doesn’t exist. He refuses to tell them where he lives. Jake tries to sweat it out of the boy and tries to “bad cop” him into telling here where he lives. Turns out that he doesn’t even live in their building but lives at the end of the block.
Back with Gil and Kay, Gil doesn’t think that the divorce hurt Cassie at all. Let’s face it, we all want our ex’s to suffer a bit. I still can’t figure out what Kay is…a TMNT maybe? Kay takes Gil trick-or-treating to cheer our little man up.
Turns out our little haunted out robot boy lied about where he lives again. Annie is crushed that Julie would know how to solve the problem because part of her looks up to her because she’s a super mom and Annie admits that she’s worried she won’t be a good mom. Jake gives her the pep talk of all pep talks about what a great mom she’ll be. Reluctantly, they decide to call Julie but quickly come up with a way to get him home…they make him think that they’re just going to leave him. He runs off after them and admits that he does indeed live in their building.
Gil is back to spying on Cassie house. He watches from the bushes as Kay goes back to Cassie’s house to steal the candy bowl. It’s bowl that Gil purchased with a $12 gift card he received as “compensation” for falling at a store. Kay rips it out of Cassie’s hands and Cassie announces that her husband bought her that bowl. Spiderman Gil tackles Kay and recovers the bowl and then returns it to a grateful Cassie…he is the super hero!
Holy smokes! The little robot trick-or-treater is JULIE’S SON! Julie is ticked but the little boy admits that he stayed because Annie and Jake are so much fun and he wishes they were his parents. He slams the door leaving Julie in the hall with Annie and Jake. The girls have a moment but I have a feeling that it won’t be long lasting…assuming that Julie is in more episodes!
