Sincere amore?  We know!  Elise Laplante joins us this week at the partners’ desk for episode 1.14, “Caroline and the Watch”!  Put on your best subway map tie and your dressiest rollerblades and glide along with us as we discuss such scintillating topics as hangry Richard, comedy in a pre-“That’s What She Said” world, the need for an HR person in The City, emailing “Jimmy” Burrows, and Skimbleshanks: the Railway Cat.  Caroline in the City: it’s The Sopranos of three-camera sitcoms!
