Erik Shephard we got your plate returned!

25 – Eliot talks about politics and apparently, I was so enthralled that I had no idea our guest had buzzed in.

30 – Pat McGann is here! He’s opening for Sebastian Manaskelco (SP?!) He’s from the south side of Chicago. He and Jimmy talk about it. The racism wasn’t part of his family.

35 – Pat and Jimmy talk Grand Rapids!

Pedantry: The Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village is in Dearborn, Michigan, just outside of my home town of Detroit. -Darryl

Round the horn!

55 – Pat wonders when Jimmy will share his childhood movies with Oliver.

Interesting (to me) note about Abercrombie and Fitch being a pretty classy department store before becoming an overpriced ripped-jeans outlet: It’s where Rock Hudson’s character works in the comedy Man’s Favorite Sport? He is the author of a fishing guide and works in the fishing gear department. But then… -Darryl

1h15m – Jimmy wins! Jake Gyllenhaal!

A note about The Good Place and Chidi, the indecisive super smart nerd, being unrealistically buff when seen shirtless: This is foreshadowed in season one when Eleanor mentions that Chidi is “surprisingly jacked.” -Darryl
