Episode Title: Kimmy Does a Puzzle
Original Air Date: May 19,2017
Episode Number: 3×08
Titus makes a shocking confession about the cruise. When a hurricane hits, Kimmy turns their apartment into a “fun-ker” filled with games and puzzles.
OMG, I think this is my favorite episode of the season yet. I couldn’t stop laughing throughout the entire episode and I kept on pausing it because I was laughing so hard and didn’t want to miss anything. I’m so glad we now know what happened to Titus on that cruise ship and it’s even funnier than I could have imagined.
Him thinking he ate Dionne Warwick; him poisoning Dionne and by accident, the entire ship; him being the lead on Mahogany and killing it. Just comedy gold all around. There were so many great lines that I will list towards the end of this review.
Kimmy and Titus’ friendship has always been the best thing about this show so I’m glad that it was the focus of this episode and that Kimmy called out Titus for being selfish because it’s true. Titus admitting that Kimmy makes him a better person and then finally relenting and giving her what she’s always wanted brought tears to my eyes. It was a beautiful speech and even though the high five scene was cheesy, I couldn’t help but smile.
Maya Rudolph as Dionne Warwick was perfect. Loved all the NJ shoutouts (I refuse to call them ‘digs’). Jersey Proud indeed. I laughed at the “Lea Michele” intro and them not letting us see the actress’ face.
And now for the hilarious lines that were my faves:
“I ate Grammy-Award winner Dionne Warwick!”
“Shells can be pasta.”
“Porno with dead animals?”
“Girl, that’s so much worse than what it actually is!”
“The Ocean Skank sank.”
“I’m not playing a game where the whole point is to pay rent.”
“You can’t kick me out of here. One of my fake names is on that lease.”
“Have a nice life!”
“You know I don’t!”
“I’m a moral fetus, Kim. I absorb niceness from your umbilicals. Don’t abort me!”
