They decide to re-rack the theme song again at the opening, and demand that we all turn it up in our headphones. Rory jokes that we are in Groundhog day, and the theme song plays again. They start talking about the movie Boyhood, and Rory plays a song from the soundtrack on his phone. DVK doesn’t really like the movie, and Rory says that he’s seen it 3 times, but probably won’t watch it again because he feels like he got all that he can out of it. They go to the letters. Rory jumps, and DVK runs with his eyes closed. DVK makes a reference to Friday Night Lights and says “Eyes closed, run straight, always lose” Rory adds “always injured, always urgent care.” The first letter talks about falling down an escalator, which reminds Rory of an instagram video he saw where someone gently touches people’s arms as they pass each other on escalators going opposite directions. Rory says he sent the video to Jay Larson because it seems like something he would do. DVK agrees saying Jay Larson is always down for a light caress, he knows because they made out one time at a dinner table which is a story that was brought up in the “A Year in Prison & Traveling vs Settling Down” episode from 4/10/2019. DVK then tells a story of falling out of a tree when he was a kid, when he hurt himself badly; his mom had a good poker face and told him he was fine as he was bleeding and she was trying to clean him up, but then his Aunt Connie enters and exclaims, “Oh my god, his face is gone!” They go to see Dr. Baptist, which is a name Rory is positive he is making up (similar to Mr. Brooms, the barber, mentioned in the “Balding & Committal” episode from 11/28/2018). DVK mentions that he laughed like the Joker as he was getting his lip stiched, which gets them to mention Michael Keaton again saying that they wish they can just ask him about that movie. Rory also has a story about being injured and mentions his own Aunt Connie. Rory mentions shooting the pilot for Robbie in Atlanta and having his wife and daughter there, his daughter fell and he shows pictures of it to DVK and he gets grossed out. Letter asks DVK for advice on meeting people through improv, and DVK brings up the fact that Rory met his wife through improv and could also give some really great advice. They encourage the writer to sign up for that improv class.
