Keith talks about a "Japanese horror flick they want Celeste to do the remake for". The reference is to The Grudge (2004), which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar. Michelle Trachtenberg, who plays Celeste, also played Gellar's (as title role) little sister Dawn in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997). See more »

Brenda: So how's it going with Olivier?
Margaret: He's a very passionate man. He's lot of fun if you don't take him too seriously. And he's completely supportive of my decision to have vaginal rejuvenating surgery.
Brenda: [disgusted] Awww, mom!
Margaret: Darling, I've had a couple of children. You expecially took your toll. I mean, c'mon, no one wants to fuck a glass of water, if you know what I'm saying.
Brenda: [puts away the glass of water she's drinking]

Bad Things Happen to Good People...
19 September 2018 | by rhyllannSee all my reviews

Having grown up in a family Funeral Parlor, I can tell you that it was uncanny how these characters are somewhat mirrored to my own family. That being said, it's the truth that unequivocally horrifying things happen to lovely decent people. The entire series set us up to basically fall in love with David (in a Universal sense). So when this absolutely insane off the hook event takes place, it kicked us in the psyche and heart. I still have to skip that episode when I watch the series every few years or so. I can't stand it, it's like an electric blender in my stomach on high speed.

When a show can do that to a viewer, I think SOMETHING of merit has been achieved.
