Quotes

Dev: Why the fuck were we just hiding behind that damn tree? His dad doesn't know that we eat pork. It's against our religion.
Denise: Wait, aren't y'all two grown-ass men?
Dev: Yeah, but we're scared of our parents.
Denise: Okay, this is crazy. Now, I got some religious relatives that's not into the whole lesbian thing, but I ain't got to hide who I am. Not that eating pork is on the same level of scrutiny as being gay, but you know what I'm saying.

Great humorous look at religious prohibition
2 February 2018 | by LorenBiegSee all my reviews

Having spent many years in a religious environment rife with things "you can't do", I found this episode particularly amusing. Ansari's satirical parody of his own religious prohibition against eating pork and the pious and hypocritical attitudes of those around him was spot on. His discovery of the epic beauty of bacon as a child was a high-point, as is the discovery of pork barbecue by his cousin who appears like a drug addict, willing to lie and sneak around to get it. In the end, the point is well-made, be who you are.
