Why does this suitcase smell like cheese?  Pull up a chair you can balance on your nose and join us in the non-circus section as we get a crash course in culture in episode 1.07, “Caroline and the Opera”!  We discuss such important topics as the eternal sitcom war of Snoots vs. Normies, the moment we realized we were Caroline/Richard shippers, and doilies with armholes.  Don’t sass your auntie!

This week's "plugs":

Visual aids:

Amy recommends The Baby-Sitters Club on Netflix!
