Episode 20: Romantic Gestures are Creepy Unless You Like The Person

It all started with Offset trying to get Cardi B. back in December with his literal showstopping display of affections. We attempt to get down to the root cause of why Offset felt it was OK to do this by analyzing some of the most romantic gestury movies in pop culture.

Moral to the Story: To be a successful grand gesturer, you know your audience. Take some time to get to know people first.

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

  • Mallory has only ever received flowers on her 16th birthday…from her dad.
  • #WePodcastLikeThis: still a work in progress

  • The best romantic gesture: a dildo
  • Mallory’s casino stalker who put gifts on her desk because pop culture made him think it was ok.
  • HIMYM would be a very different show to watch now.
  • Mallory feels Rachel & Joey could have been real if not for pop culture outrage.

Podcast Shout Outs:

Episode 3: I Choo-Choo-Choose You

In this week’s episode, Tamu & Mallory watch each other’s favorite teen movies, Ever After: A Cinderella Story and Pretty in Pink.

If you haven’t guessed, Ever After was Mallory’s jam back in the day; so much so, she wrote an essay about it in the 7th grade. She felt more closely aligned to the Cinderella character, however, much to her chagrin, Tamu found Mallory’s tendencies to be more Prince leaning…she was not pleased. Tamu was annoyed with the end of the movie because Game of Thrones training has taught her that you must kill your enemies so they don’t come back for revenge; yet, The Baroness lives.

Meanwhile, Mallory had some serious opinions about Tamu’s choice, Pretty in Pink; mainly that Molly Ringwald’s character settled.

Both ladies learn that prom is the most important event in the known universe.

Moral to the Story: A relationship doesn’t start in 5 days, it takes a least 6 or 7 days.

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

  • Tamu saw Black Panther
  • Yertle the Turtle
  • Sex and the City stole the shoe scene proposal from Ever After
  • Other 2000s movies Mallory needs to watch
  • Love Actually and Laura Linney’s choice
  • Mallory LOVES Pride and Prejudice 2005
  • Duties: sacrificing your wants/needs for others
  • 80s movies are problematic AF
  • Realistic stats about High School romance (it ain’t pretty)
  • Tamu equates relationships to Mary J. Blige’s song, Seven Days

Apologies: First there were sound issues. It will be better next time. Second, Tamu tries and fails doing an Australian accent…sorry, Australia.
