Idk it just gives me the heebie jeebies! He barely knows her and is taken to saying weird stuff to her like that. 🤢

It does sound kind of odd. "Atta boy" was (is?) the common expression. I don't know why he says "babe."

I am up to No. 59, I think. Didn't listen to any today—got enthralled with some Bach cello suites instead. :D

Coincidentally, I'm on 59, too! I started back up today from the other day.

Question: Why the heck did Johnson put turpentine instead of oil in the drum??
Another question: Why aren’t any of the characters wondering about this? :lol:

:lol:Wasn't that so weird? They didn't explain it, but I assumed either the barrel was labeled wrong or the Euclidians tampered with it somehow.
You're right! Doesn't it sometimes feel like there may have been more to the story? Maybe a line or two was thrown out and never replaced. These people seem to take things pretty plainly. That, for example, and also Cleostra/Joan took very quickly to calling Pat Mother.... Don't you think it would have been well to be a bit skeptical, especially with the way she was brought up?

Questions, questions! Food for thought.

Through 74. Have you noticed that the more impressive Joan's knowledge becomes, the more irritating Jerry gets? :D

Yes!! And I love that she gives it back to him with taking his expressions literally. I was mad at him for her at first, but she seems to be able to take care of herself.
My favorite episode to date was when they took an entire episode to talk about food and drink. :lol:
P.S. Doesn't Jerry just seem super jealous when Joan says intelligent things? She's not showing off, she's just being herself. I think he's just mad that he can't talk the way she does.

Yeah, some male ego involved there, it seems. Too bad she can't have a more intelligent and appreciative boyfriend. :lol:

The food and drink episode—do you mean when Joan/Cleostra gives them the little capsules?
