Aunt Irma visits....Brilliant!!
30 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jen is experiencing mood swings due to her time of the month, falling to the communists, high tide, Aunt Irma visiting. Moss and Roy are noticing mood swings, weight gain and breast tenderness as well. Moss doesn't understand what Jen means by all these analogies so Roy tells him "First scene in Cary, Moss!" to which Moss replies: "Ohhhh". Jen figures out it may be that they are all "synchronizing" womanly cycles of the month. Roy's reaction is "I'm a man, we're men!" and Moss' reaction is to reach out to the IT Community to list out their symptoms and ask: "Do We Have PMT?" The result is the IT Community creates a website dedicated to the duo and their PMT called (there is an actual website out there)

It's a great episode with great twists and characters.
