IMDB entry for this episode


Written by Bill Prady

Directed by James Burrows


Crack open a ginger ale and steel yourself for some absolute nonsense as we go on the long, strange trip of Episode 1.04, “Caroline and the Bad Back”!   Join us as we examine the ugly underbelly of Caroline Duffy's art, the mystery of what "Del" is short for, and our misguided desire for Richard/Del hijinks.  Does anybody really know what time it is?

If you want to go down the rabbit hole of the Tommy Westphall Universe (and take our word for it, it is A Rabbit Hole), start here.

This week's "plugs":

Amy recommends the book Dryland by Sara Jaffe and Never Have I Ever on Netflix!

Christie recommends episode #158 of the Reply All podcast, "The Case of the Missing Hit" and 30 Rock!
