Episode 1.17 -- “Caroline and the Kid”

Original airdate: March 14, 1996

IMDB entry for this episode


Written by Wil Calhoun and Bill Masters and Jay Scherick
Directed by Tom Cherones

Oh no, it’s El Diablo!  Jessie Weinberg joins us for some misadventures in babysitting in episode 1.17, “Caroline and the Kid”!  We discuss epic tales told through face acting, surprising parallels between Caroline in the City and Hemingway, “Bulge Hackman”, mullets on youths, and the uniquely ‘90s humiliation of being bullied into a trip to Kinko’s.  I believe that’s going to cost a famous director/choreographer his lunch money!

This week's "plugs":

Amy recommends The Black Kids by Christina Hammonds Reed!

Christie recommends the antenna game show channel BUZZR!

Jessie recommends Schitt's Creek on Netflix, The Vow on HBO and Love Fraud on Showtime!

This week's guest

Jessie Weinberg is an artist and writer/performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. She recently took up crochet, because it gives her the temporary illusion of control in this ever-worsening hellscape. Also she’s a Libra.
