Original airdate: October 19, 1995

IMDB entry for this episode


Written by Mark Wilding and Jennifer Glickman

Directed by Rod Daniel


The City becomes a "surveillance" state as we attempt to make a withdrawal at Episode 1.05, "Caroline and the ATM"!  Join us as we discuss the finer details of Richard's sad murder apartment, the gradations of nose-picking, and whether or not the show is trying to gaslight us into hating an American treasure.  Men are from Mars, women are from Venus, and the Muppets are a gift, Richard Karinsky, A GIFT!

Friend of the podcast Jason Graae appears in this episode as Mr. Green!  Here's a recent performance he did of Jacques Brel's "Madeleine" that delighted us so:













We absolutely recommend falling down a Jason Graae rabbithole -- if you want a place to start, we'd humbly suggest his brilliant album of Charles Strouse songs:












This week's "plugs":

Amy (maybe?) recommends Mrs. America on Hulu.

Christie recommends The Great Muppet Caper, currently available on Disney+!
