IMDB entry for this episode


Written by Bill Prady

More Monkeys and Bears, oh my!  This week Adam Grosswirth helps us ring in 1996 in style in episode 1.11, “Caroline and the Gift”!  The rabbit holes are deeper and wilder than ever as we discuss the reality of backstage at the Winter Garden, Richard’s enormous pants, Remo’s in Denny’s Mode, Alotta Fagina at the Life Cafe, and Del’s inadvertent invention of the Apple Watch.  Toothpaste is good stuff!

This week's "plugs":

Happy 1996!

Adam Grosswirth!

Toothpaste really IS good stuff!

Christmas in January!  What joy!


men grow cold as girls grow old

and we all lose our charms in the end

Clear Eyes, Large Pants, Can't Lose

This looks even more ridiculous without the snapping sound effect:

La Bella Donna!

"Italian-coded charades"

Certain as the sun rising in the east

Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme

Richard is a beast


Richard earned that money, dammit!

Remo's in Denny's Mode:
