This past week's episode of 'Happy Endings' ("The Shrink, The Dare, Her Date, And Her Brother') gave a good example of the type of investment I have to make in being a Caretaker for the Toobworld Dynamic.
Brad and his sister-in-law Alex went to see a new rom-com with the generic title of "That's The Way It's Gotta Be". Michael Cassidy and Sarah Wright played the movie's leads, and their credits for the episodes listed them simply as "Male Lead" and "Female Lead".
This is information which I'll store away - the time may come when Cassidy and Wright will be playing actors in another TV show, where their characters will actually have names, and I can make the claim that they are the same actors who played in the movie "That's The Way It's Gotta Be".
And should there ever be such an episode of some other TV show in which they guest-starred that is so Zonk-filled there is a danger it might toss the entire series out of Earth Prime-Time.... Then I'll claim that it was an episode of a TV show based on the "real" characters' lives since everybody in Toobworld apparently will have TV shows made about them eventually. And the characters played by Cassidy and/or Wright were being played by the actors from that previous TV show, who had starred in the movie shown in an episode of 'Happy Endings'.
I'll understand if you have to pause now to take some Dramamine.....
