This episode of Reply All took me by surprise. It starts out…
And, so one day, they decide that, instead of checking in over the phone, they’re gonna cut out the middle man.

PJ: In the past, Kim showed up on my mom’s radar at her worst moments, like after something truly scary had just happened. But now that she’s pinned on my Mom’s radar 24/7, they’re both noticing things they’d never really seen before.
KIM: Nancy will say, “Kim, you had a good day today! Objectively, look at it … stop scrutinizing it. You’re doing well.”
