Episode 178 Transcript:

Emma: You’re listening to the Stunning Mass Podcast, your cozy consolation pay attention. This week we’re dissecting a favourite Consolation watch film for decor and residential inspiration. That is an ongoing collection for us, and this week’s choice is Father of the Bride, 1991, and Nancy Myers Basic. You must say what 12 months as a result of it’s a remake, which I don’t suppose I noticed once I first watched it as a result of I’ve really by no means seen the unique. So that may be a enjoyable one to do too. Which wouldn’t be a re-watch for me, it could be a primary watch.

Elsie: It’s comprised of a film from 1950. After which additionally it was remade like final 12 months there was a Robert DeNiro father of the bride that you simply watched. I didn’t see it however I keep in mind you informed me about it.

Emma: Sure, I watched it with my husband and he liked it much more than I did, I believe, and we each liked it. It’s so cute. 

Elsie: Effectively, I can not wait to get to Father of the bride. I believe we’ll in all probability do a separate episode sometime sooner or later for half two, which is the like they’re having infants. They’re each so good, I can’t choose which one I like extra, I like them each equal. 

Emma: Yeah, I in all probability like them each equally, however they’re totally different. I like them for various causes. I really feel like Diane Keaton will get extra time in the second and I actually like that. She’s nice on this one too, however I don’t know. Anyway, in the event you’ve by no means seen this one, we’ll let you know just a little bit in regards to the plot. You may as well Google it, however primarily it facilities round George Banks, performed by Steve Martin, who’s a father. His daughter sort of rapidly and unexpectedly will get engaged and he’s having a tough time letting her develop up, and that’s type of what’s taking place in his life. So he’s the daddy of the bride and so they determine to have the marriage at their home, of their yard. And he’s coping with his daughter rising up, accepting this younger man who’s gonna be a son-in-law paying for the marriage and sort of all of the like humorous little, you recognize, effectively I’m the daddy of the bride, I gotta pay for, you recognize, all these sort of, I believe just a little bit quaint, however I additionally perceive it. 

Elsie: He’s obtained this big quantity of complaining in regards to the worth of the marriage and cash, which could be very cute. And yeah, identical to Steve Martin having his like freak-out scenes, there’s a really iconic scene the place he begins ripping up the hotdog bun package deal as a result of he solely needs the identical variety of hotdogs and hotdog buns. And I imply, I simply must say upfront, this film brings out my Steve Martin crush like no different. It’s actually intense for some motive on this film. I believe it’s one in all his finest healthful film performances. I’ve at all times liked Steve Martin. We presently watch Solely Murders and I like him a lot, it doesn’t matter what, and Martin Quick as effectively. However this film, there’s one thing about it, it’s prefer it was written for, you understand how typically they write a film only for the actor. I didn’t see that within the trivia, however I really feel like they in all probability didn’t actually take into account a variety of different actors moreover Steve Martin. He’s excellent. 

Emma: Yeah. I do not know however he’s excellent at this. 

Elsie: So do you could have any recollections from the primary time you watched? I don’t, I don’t keep in mind the primary time I watched it. 

Emma: I don’t, I keep in mind rewatching it in all probability like 5 or 6 years in the past and my ideas then, however I don’t suppose that was the primary time I noticed it, I doubt it, but it surely might have been. However one factor I keep in mind pondering was like, oh wow, narration as a result of it actually opens with a variety of. It actually nearly seems like a e-book as a result of Steve Martin’s character, George could be very like narrating. You realize, we reside on this home we blah, blah. He’s simply very very like providing you with a set of the scene, which doesn’t occur rather a lot in films. I don’t really feel, it’s not tremendous, tremendous frequent. 

Elsie: I used to be already crying on his first opening scene when he’s like, I by no means wanna transfer, I like that we went tenting in our yard. All these little issues that he was saying, oh my god. 

Emma: Yeah, he’s reminiscing about all his recollections along with his youngsters, which he additionally has a son who’s not absolutely grown but, so there’s nonetheless like that within the film too. However yeah, he’s simply coming to phrases with ageing and his youngsters ageing and life-changing, which is difficult. But it surely’s actually candy. So for me, we’re gonna speak about decor and all that, however I additionally really feel like that is the film, not even simply the Nancy Meyers one, however of all the films, that simply feels to me prefer it might have been made in my city. I don’t essentially suppose it’s made within the Midwest or I don’t suppose individuals can be like, oh, this feels very midwest.

Elsie: It’s imagined to be a small city in California. 

Emma: Yeah as a result of the opposite home that’s like, you recognize, the son-in-law, their dad and mom really feel much more California. And he drives round, I believe you see palm timber however there’s simply one thing about this home and I simply guess perhaps the household sensibilities and issues, which is one thing that’s everywhere in the nation, but it surely simply felt to me very like, oh, this could possibly be the place I’m from, which I don’t really feel that rather a lot in films to be trustworthy, particularly in films from sure eras, because it seems like a variety of California, New York, it doesn’t at all times really feel very center of the nation. I by no means really feel like this might have been in Missouri, so it simply has a really basic, could possibly be anyplace very relatable, regardless that the home is kind of huge and beautiful, but it surely simply seems like not a very unrelatable factor. 

Elsie: Yeah, it’s positively one in all my favourite film homes of all time. If I had been residing on an infinite funds in LA, that is the film home that I might attempt every little thing to get, it’s so wonderful. It’s such a fantastic home, however I believe that our new home, one of many issues I preferred about it’s that I used to be like, it has just a little tiny little bit of father of the bride. I believe it appears just a little bit extra like a special film home. It has just a little tiny bit, and I’ll add extra over time, particularly the picket fence, I believe I can add that this 12 months. It’s actually a basic, lovely house. I’ll hyperlink in our present notes, there’s this weblog that I like to take a look at known as Hooked on Homes, and so they have a complete submit in regards to the father of the bride home and so they simply do film homes and so they sort of simply clarify what’s actual places, what’s a sound stage. It’s simply sort of attention-grabbing for nerds like us. So, yeah, I’ll put that in there and you’ll take a look at photos in the event you haven’t seen it shortly or it is advisable refresh your self. It’s a phenomenal, iconic white clapboard home. So let’s discuss in regards to the decor. Oh my God, there are such a lot of good elements of it and I’ll say that they do present the inside form much more within the second film. If you take a look at the photographs, simply take a look at each of ’em as a result of it’s nice each methods. However my favourite factor about this film is that they present a scene the place the home is roofed in snow, and it’s such as you actually haven’t seen a home till you’ve seen it coated in snow, proper? So the outside of the house, one in all my favourite issues about it, has shutters. It’s so cute and it has a variety of vines rising on the entrance of the home, and a variety of flowers rising, which I believe is so basic and delightful. Anytime I’ve ever talked to a landscaping particular person, they hate it and so they advocate in opposition to it and I assume it doubtlessly has its points. However certain this home, appears so good on there that it simply makes me wanna like develop vines on my home. 

Emma: Yeah, I imply, they’re all through the film prepping to have the marriage outdoors, or a minimum of a part of the marriage is outdoors, so that they’re wanting it to look actually manicured and all that. However I additionally suppose the outside, they do such a fantastic job of doing the identical factor with the exteriors, they do the inside, which is, it simply seems like very lived in. It doesn’t really feel like they simply purchased this home, or this film crew simply pulled as much as this new home and it doesn’t actually have a lot character. I don’t even know if it was another person’s home, I don’t know. We’re in all probability gonna speak about that within the trivia, however I simply really feel prefer it seems like individuals have been residing right here for 10, 20, 30 years, it seems like that. It seems like they planted these roses years and years in the past and now they’ve the entire bush. It feels very cozy. I personally am not a lot of a landscaping exterior vegetation particular person as a result of we don’t even mow our personal yard. We rent somebody to do this. I simply shouldn’t have a inexperienced thumb, however I do love strolling by individuals’s homes who do. So I so admire it and I aspire, however man it’s not my period for it. Possibly it by no means might be, I don’t know, we’ll see what occurs in life and maintain my thoughts open to it. However I might like to stroll by this home as a result of I believe it could scent wonderful. I simply suppose it could look lovely and yeah, they present us a scene the place it’s snowy, so that you sort of get to see the totally different seasons and that’s enjoyable. 

Elsie: Subsequent time we go to LA we should always attempt to take an image there and simply be that loser for one minute as a result of it’s my favourite home. I do know it’s annoying that individuals try this, however one time on your very favourite one perhaps. 

Emma: Hey, I by no means promised to not be annoying.

Elsie: That’s true. It’s in Pasadena and in response to Hooked on Homes, they use two homes to movie. I believe that the yard is a special home after which the entrance yard is that this home. So, the basketball is definitely from the opposite home, however I really feel like that’s an enormous a part of the nostalgia of this home is the scenes the place they’re enjoying basketball collectively and the film has a variety of little flashbacks the place it exhibits his daughter Annie as just a little woman, after which he realizes she’s a girl and it’s going forwards and backwards and it’s tugging at your heartstrings. Just lately our daughter requested if we might get a basketball objective at our new home, and I identical to about misplaced it and I used to be like, I’m gonna make it look identical to the daddy of the bride. I sort of simply wanna make Jeremy into Steve Martin from Father of the Bride, is that dangerous? 

Emma: No, it is best to do it. When you might do it, do it. 

Elsie: It’s an aspiration. It’s so romantic. I like the basketball scenes. It’s one in all my favourite stills. It counts as its personal room, I believe as a result of it’s so particular. 

Emma: It additionally has the additional advantage of all of the stuff you simply stated, but in addition it exhibits off the sneakers as a result of he owns a shoe enterprise known as Sidekicks. So that you’re seeing the tennis sneakers as they’re enjoying basketball. However yeah, we additionally had a basketball objective in our driveway rising up. I keep in mind enjoying with our dad, we’d play horse rather a lot. The place you’re like attempting to make the hampers and spell out horse, issues like that. You had been extra into basketball than I used to be, however I’ve recollections of that. So I believe that’s a part of it too, is I’m like, yeah, that’s a factor. All households have the basketball objective within the driveway. That’s not essentially true however on this film, you get to see it and it sort of hits house. 

Elsie: I find it irresistible. One other favourite a part of this house is the kitchen. It’s talked about typically. It’s type of identical to the idyllic American kitchen, whenever you analyze it whenever you’re actually trying, it’s very cluttered. It’s not that nice, but it surely’s the sensation that it offers you after they’re having scenes in there’s actually, actually good. So yeah, I actually wanna perceive what it’s that makes that excellent kitchen feeling.

Emma: Yeah, I agree. If you actually take a look at it, it’s a huge kitchen however you possibly can sort of inform from the surface of the home, it’s not gonna be a small kitchen. In order that’s not essentially stunning. It doesn’t really feel like there are any super-expensive finishes. It’s not like they’ve these loopy marbled counter tops or something. It feels sort of relatable, though it’s a very giant kitchen. 

Elsie: Kitchens within the Nineteen Nineties had been actually totally different than now. There have been totally different countertop developments, I believe there are butcher counters. They usually actually didn’t have a strong floor and marble. 

Emma: Yeah. It was extra like tiled counter tops. That was extra in.

Elsie: Yeah, it was like tiled or butcher or regardless of the different sort of fake-looking marble known as.

Emma: Laminate. 

Elsie: Yeah, laminate. When you actually take a look at nineties films, you actually don’t see granite or quartz or marble until they’re exhibiting that it’s like an vintage kitchen.

Emma: And even just like the home equipment on this home, the oven and range high appears very nice, I don’t know the model. It sort of appeared like a KitchenAid to me, however I don’t actually know. However then the fridge is like this black facet by facet. It doesn’t actually appear like something, all that particular. It doesn’t look crappy or something, however I simply imply all of it appears relatable, good center class, not like loopy fancy, not like, oh, this can be a restaurant kitchen and cooks reside right here. It doesn’t actually really feel that method, however on the identical time, it does really feel like an actual household there who cooks as a result of it’s a little cluttered. In a great way, I believe in a homey method, there’s like pans hanging above the island and so they appear like they’ve been used. They don’t appear like a model new set that some set particular person hung up proper earlier than they began capturing. Simply doesn’t all look tremendous matchy, matchy. So it feels actual, regardless that it’s not, it’s a film.

Elsie: Yeah. It’s an excellent feeling kitchen. One other factor that’s sort of at all times in a Nancy Meyers film is an outside eating scene, and so they have a phenomenal out of doors eating scene with candles and it simply each time see them, I’m like, why don’t we eat open air with candles? We simply don’t try this and I wanna try this. It’s like an aspiration that’s so attainable. It’s easy, however I simply don’t try this. So yeah, it’s one thing that I actually need to incorporate. 

Emma: Yeah, I guess your women would actually wanna try this too. They love consuming outdoors, candles make it much more particular. 

Elsie: Sure. Okay. So about the lounge. Just lately I requested my husband, Jeremy, what do you concentrate on such a couch? And I confirmed him a white slipcover couch, like a Nancy Meyers. It’s sort of in all her films. There’s sort of by no means every other sort of couch moreover these white slipcover sofas. It’s very basic. I don’t see as a lot of my buddies utilizing them although. It’s just a little little bit of an old-person factor, proper? I requested him, you recognize as a result of they’ve them round and it’s attention-grabbing. It’s positively an attention-grabbing factor for somebody like me who switched sofas so many occasions, this appears extra washable, one thing totally different, appears extra long-lasting. Looks as if it’s not attempting to be the assertion of your room as a result of I’ve a factor for coloured sofas, which doesn’t at all times work out as probably the most long-lasting buy determination. So anyway, I confirmed him the image and he was just like the strongest response. Completely not, he was like, no method and he by no means does that. So yeah, I used to be curious what you concentrate on them as a result of I believe I’m 50 50 really. I wasn’t attempting to speak him into it, I in all probability might have. I used to be simply gauging the temperature and it was chilly as ice. Yeah. I’m curious, what do you concentrate on the white slipcover couch factor?

Emma: I might like to know extra from somebody who has one or simply evaluations, I assume as a result of my impression is that they’d be simpler to scrub as effectively. So if that’s really true, then I’m like, Ooh, that’s fairly attention-grabbing as a result of we’re a family that has youngsters and canine and I let Oscar eat snacks on the sofa typically and you recognize, we get crumbs, all that. So yeah, I need issues which are fairly washable. I additionally don’t have a powerful sense of what these prices are versus among the different couches that we are likely to gravitate in the direction of. However the principle factor that places me not ice chilly, however extra within the center or perhaps just a little scorching, is I like the concept that the sofa will not be essentially the assertion within the room as a result of I simply are likely to wanna have artwork or colourful throw pillows, or actually, I’m a kind of individuals now the place I like wanna put out my Halloween throw pillows after which my Christmas throw pillows, my all 12 months spherical throw pillow. So I sort of like a sofa that’s gonna showcase my seasonal decor and like the opposite issues within the room, I sort of preferred that concept. However once I’m procuring, I haven’t shopped for a sofa in fairly a while, however I do sort of transfer in the direction of the coloured ones or extra of an announcement piece as a result of they simply actually stand out. They simply look extra attention-grabbing than a boring sofa. I assume not, these are boring, however you recognize, much less of an announcement.

Elsie: Yeah. Effectively, that’s attention-grabbing. Within the nineties decor books, you understand how Elise has the nineties decor books factor she does on Instagram? They at all times have them, so perhaps it is rather like a really nineties factor, however I do know they’re at Pottery Barn and locations like that, so I don’t know. I’m taken with our listeners, we’d love to listen to what you concentrate on these sofas as a result of I don’t know, I believe it’s perhaps considerably polarizing. And you probably have them, please ship us a message and inform us what you suppose, if it’s higher, if it’s laborious to maintain clear something, we do not know. We’re clueless. However yeah, I’m interested by our new house, you recognize, it’s like just a little extra conventional and I’ve not picked out any kinda couch but, and I have to, and it’s like, what do I do? I don’t know. Anyway. Okay, so my favourite second from the entire film, is that if I had been going to make a wall artwork of 1 nonetheless within the bathtub with the swans in it. 

Emma: I knew you had been gonna say that, yeah. 

Elsie: Oh my god. Yeah, I need to be an artwork painter. It’s simply so cute, it’s iconic.

Emma: Yeah. It’s the second we had been like, oh man. 

Elsie: I find it irresistible. Okay, so different cozy inspirations from the film, may be vogue, meals, drink, or something. I actually suppose Diane Keaton is sort of a model icon. I need to be every little thing about her from all ages she’s ever been in her day. 

Emma: At all times and Perpetually. Yeah, each film she’s ever in.

Elsie: She’s the last word lady. 

Emma: Yeah, she actually is. She actually is and she or he appears lovely on this film. Not stunning.

Elsie: Certainly one of my favourite issues is that the opening credit of the film, the producer and all that is rather like champagne bubbles for like 5 straight minutes and I don’t know, I assume I didn’t discover it up to now, however this time I used to be like, that’s really so cute, like lovely.

Emma: It’s, yeah. And it actually units the scene for this film’s a couple of marriage ceremony and celebration and romance, you recognize? Yeah. 

Elsie: Yeah. It’s cute. The opposite factor is the marriage tent so ever since we now have been beginning to put together to maneuver to our new house, which does have an acre and a half. I dunno if I’ve stated that earlier than, it’s a reasonably large yard. I don’t know if I might wanna say this out loud, however I’ll. Cuz why not? I’m obsessed that I need one in all my youngsters to get married in our yard and I believe it’s from this film. I’m obsessive about it although and it’s like, that’s not an affordable obsession to have as a result of it’s probably not your selection and also you shouldn’t be into 

Emma: Yeah. Forcing one thing like that. Possibly they may, however yeah. 

Elsie: And it could possibly be one thing else too.

Emma: What about this although? What if we hire a kind of tents for some sort of birthday celebration? Or, I imply, I’m gonna flip 40 in a pair extra years. We could possibly be Emma’s birthday, a fortieth birthday celebration, otherwise you and Jeremy have a giant anniversary occasion in the event you wished to or one thing the place, you recognize?

Elsie: I’ll make this type of fortieth birthday celebration the dimensions of a marriage, that’s nice. 

Emma: Okay, nice. Nice. There’s nothing I like greater than a variety of consideration on my birthdays. 

Elsie: Yep. I’ll provide you with a 10-minute-long awkward toast identical to I did at your marriage ceremony. I’ll do all of it. 

Emma: Oh my God. All I imply is in order for you a kind of tents in your yard, I guess we will provide you with a motive.

Elsie: Yeah, no, that sounds good. I agree. Just like the scenes with the greenery across the doorways and it’s simply so cute.

Emma: Yeah, we gotta do it within the spring or summer season. It might’t be my birthday now that I’m fascinated about it. That’s in January. That’s not gonna work. We gotta do one thing within the spring or summer season, perhaps for our mother. Anyway, we will discover a motive to place that tent in your yard. Don’t fear about it. 

Elsie: Yeah, that sounds actually good. 

Emma: We might get some swans too. 

Elsie: May we actually? 

Emma: I’m certain we might, please. I don’t know what it prices, however yeah, I’m certain we might. 

Elsie: It sounds nice. Right here’s my bank card, signal me up. Okay. 

Emma: I like his little automobile, his like sports activities automobile that he drives round. I’m probably not a automobile particular person.

Elsie: What sort of automobile is that? 

Emma: I don’t know, yeah, we’d must look it up. It’s so cute. I used to be gonna say, I’m probably not a lot of a automobile particular person. I simply drive a Subaru and I’ve for years and I find it irresistible. Like, I don’t care. I might by no means get myself a flowery little automobile. It’s not an indulgence that I personally need, however I do like how a lot he appears to love it and he’s driving round. It’s like his particular little factor, clearly. And I sort of identical to that vibe. I get it. After which additionally, I really feel like this film ought to get credited for just like the dad sneakers as a result of he’ll put on this type of particular tennis sneakers due to his shoe firm. However I really feel like that’s the dad shoe look and I really feel like this film could be just like the origin story or one thing. 

Elsie: That’s true. How come that individuals say that Tom Hanks is America’s dad as a substitute of Steve Martin?

Emma: I don’t know. In all probability Steve Martin’s pissed about it. No, I don’t know. 

Elsie: I really feel like he sort of earned it. 

Emma: You possibly can have multiple dad. They may each be the dad. 

Elsie: That’s true. Why not be like Mama Mia? That’s nice. Okay, so I had down, did this film age effectively, or did it not age effectively? I believe it aged very effectively on the spectrum of Nineteen Nineties films, which is what we’ve principally been rewatching not too long ago. I believe it’s up there on the very high. I believe it’s very watchable. Even Martin Quick’s efficiency, I don’t know if they’d put that in a film now. However I believe it’s so dangerous that it’s good and it sort of works. I don’t know. What do you suppose? 

Emma: Yeah, I believe that’s the one factor that I’m like, I don’t learn about that accent selection or what sort of character he’s doing precisely, however he’s doing his factor, I’m unsure about that with the ageing, I don’t know. After which I additionally suppose it’s simply not as conventional now that, the daddy of the bride pays for the marriage. However I additionally suppose this film doesn’t deal with it, there aren’t actually a variety of sexist feedback about it. It’s extra, I take into consideration a person who’s ageing and coping with that and seeing his daughter develop up and stuff. So I really suppose all of that age like rather well and good. However I do suppose in the event that they remade it, I imply they do have a brand new one now, but when they’re making it proper now this 12 months, a few of that may dialogue and issues would in all probability change. However I don’t really feel like something in it makes me really feel like, Ooh, that is so dated and that’s not good. I believe it sort of works and ladders as much as the theme of the film. 

Elsie: I fully agree. Okay. Do you wanna hear some trivia? 

Emma: Sure. At all times. 

Elsie: Okay. This one is more durable to search out a variety of trivia on, however I’ll present you what I’ve. So the primary piece of trivia is that Eugene Levy seems in each movies, Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride, half two from 1995, however as totally different characters in every. 

Emma: Yeah, that’s true. That’s humorous. 

Elsie: Yeah, I didn’t discover that. 

Emma: I didn’t discover that and now you’re saying, I’m like, yeah, that’s true. That’s actually humorous. They simply actually preferred working with him. They’re like, we must convey him again. However you recognize, we had this totally different character we’d like, so. Yeah. 

Elsie: Yeah, I believe if I had been making a film, I might in all probability choose Eugene Levy each single time, it doesn’t matter what. In order that is sensible. Okay, so the daughter on this film is called Annie and within the Father or mother Lure, the Nancy Meyers model, the daughters are named Annie and Halle, that are the names of Nancy Meyers’s daughters. Cute, huh? Sure, so I’ve already stated this earlier within the episode, however that is my primary most coveted film home. Truly, perhaps I might give it a tie for, I don’t know. I don’t know, however I’ll say, that is my primary most coveted film home in California. That is the one, it’s identical to, it’s so iconic. It’s so wonderful, and I simply love that it’s an actual home that somebody will get to reside in, whoever they’re, good for them. 

Emma: I agree. Yeah, and identical, it could be tied with, It’s Difficult, Meryl Streep’s home. However I don’t know. I do really feel like this one feels extra, like could possibly be within the Midwest to me, not simply Southern California, regardless that it’s in California. So I don’t know, however yeah, I like this home a lot. I like this kitchen a lot. Every thing about it. 

Elsie: Yeah. It’s a really basic century house. Okay, so that is fairly frequent, however the entire interiors from the film are a sound stage, so none of them are actually in that home. All of it’s simply began from scratch, and I believe they did a very good job. They’re like stained glass and woodwork and it feels very, very genuine for a historic house, particularly styled within the nineties. And yeah, simply the correct amount of litter. Which I believe makes it really feel much less like a film set and extra like somebody’s actual house.

Emma: Agree. Yeah. They did a tremendous job.

Elsie: Okay. So that is only a micro element that I identical to love, however within the first film there’s really, in the event you look carefully within the kitchen behind her sink and stuff, there’s really cow print tile on the partitions with little cows on it. After which when it comes again for the second film, it’s switched to impartial tile. Isn’t that cute?

Emma: I didn’t discover the cow print tile. Yeah. Now I wanna re-watch it once more simply to see the tile. Yeah, I didn’t discover that. That’s attention-grabbing. 

Elsie: Once we had been in highschool, one in all our shut buddies, his mother had a cow-themed kitchen that was a ten, prefer it was not just a little bit cow themed. It was a ten out of 10 cows-themed kitchens. 

Emma: I had one other good friend whose mother had a pig kitchen. All pigs. Yeah. Why did my kitchen have a theme? What’s mistaken with me? Now that I’m fascinated about it? 

Elsie: Within the nineties, I believe individuals considered their kitchens just a little bit extra like a nursery the place you had a theme and I don’t suppose individuals do sort of anymore. However yeah, I believe the cow factor is humorous as a result of it’s turn into a development, once more, like a Gen Z development not too long ago, the previous couple of years. And it’s not for me, but it surely’s like I see that it’s there and I acknowledge that it’s trending. 

Emma: I prefer it for the nostalgia, I have to say. However there isn’t any method in hell if I had a complete pig kitchen, that Trey would come house and be like, that is completely nice, and I’m not gonna remark about this, there’s no likelihood.
