Is there a funnier show on TV right now -- still in production -- than Whitney? (You can stream the show at the link -- airs on NBC, Thursday nights right now, Wednesday's in the new year.) I don't think so. That show is hilarious.
I love that show.
I love that show.
Lily's engaged -- we saw Neal propose to her -- and the wedding's going to be in May. Whitney asked her why so early and Lily talked about babies but, clearly, they want a ratings bump for the season finale and weddings generally provide that.
So she asked Whitney to be her maid of honor -- or as Whitney put it, "president of your wedding" -- and then explained to Roxeanne that she'd asked Whitney. Roxanne was more than fine with that. More then fine. And that's when it started to hit Whitney how much work it was going to be.
But what really hit Whit was that both of her friends are talking about babies. Lily wants to have one right after getting married, Roxeanne's doctor's advising her (Roxeanne) to freeze her eggs. Whitney said they were "sluts" and not supposed to be talking about babies. She said the whole conversation was like someone had kicked her in the "balls."
This was just a really great episode for everyone.
Lily got to do her bit about using her hands to talk -- that bit's been developed throughout the early episode and really paid off this episode. Neal got a hilarious moment where he just said "Chairs." It was just so perfect and your heart went out to poor Neal who just wanted a simple engagement party while Lily wanted everything. Alex got a moment where he was hurt because Whitney told him his hair looked like the hair of a villain on a daytime soap opera. Roxeanne and Mark were great in their moments with the needle (she had to take shots to prepare for freezing the egg -- hormone shots -- in her belly and she couldn't inject herself so she turned to Mark after a mishap with Alex).
And there was also this really cute scene with Lily and Neal at the end.
But throughout there was Whitney.
And she was hilarious.
Going to her old therapist to get sleeping pills. Her therapist gives her the prescription but tells her the pills will not bring her happiness and Whitney replying that's okay because she just wants to sleep. (Being the bridesmaid and baby talk had her unhinged and unable to sleep.) She takes the pill. She's out cold. And then she's tearing up the apartment in her sleep. And standing on the kitchen table. Alex has to repeatedly get her down.
At one point where he's helping her down, she thinks she's falling and starts muttering in her sleep that her chute won't open. It was hilarious.
So were the spots with her therapist. Whitney kept going back and back and back.
It was just a great episode.
