Regina: Since I stopped going to meetings I've had time to start doing stuff like going to the gym, doing volunteer work, putting in more time at my job which has led to a raise and a promotion. In fact... the truth is I'm doing better than all of you.

Crazy Credits


This past year I was inspired by the transgender movement which, to me, appears to be an effort to synchronize one's outward sexual identity with one's internal sexual experience. I couldn't help but notice that, in many cases, the people who do this appear to be extremely happy. Which got me thinking. I want to be extremely happy. Maybe it's time for me to make a change. But then I realized my discomfort is not with having a male human body. It's with having any human body. With that in mind, my next step was obvious. I started looking for a reputable surgeon who would help me become the first member of the trans-species movement. My hope was to become a porpoise, or a hawk. (I'm a big fan of hawks, with all the gliding and swooping.) After a long, exhausting search, I found a highly-regarded doctor in Pyongyang who was more than willing to do the operation if I could sneak him into Seoul. Which I did. But then, minutes before the procedure was to begin, I was told that once again my Writers Guild insurance wouldn't pay. Filled with frustration, I decided to lose my troublesome body altogether and become trans-human. With a few odds and ends purchased from Fry's, I created a device which uploaded my entire personality, including thoughts, memories and emotions, onto the internet. As the kids like to say, I achieved singularity. If you can spare a moment, please come visit me at: See more »

User Reviews

So Far this was Octavia Spenser's Last Episode
9 June 2019 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

I Have Reviewed OVER 500 "Christmas Films and Specials". Please BEWARE Of films and specials with just one review! For instance When "It's a POSITIVE" chances are that the reviewer was involved with the production. "If its Negative" then they may have a grudge against the film for whatever reason. I am fare about these films.

The first season of "Mom" was rocky. It was finding its legs. Some of the best episodes were when we met Regina. She was played by guest star Octavia Spencer. In this episode she was very funny and sad. See Regina has been sober for sometime. The last shot of the episode was just very sad but very "truthful".

I hope however in the future Octavia Spencer (Regina) comes back and have Regina return in a triumph.
