    Misheard Lyrics (Mondegreens): There's A Bathroom On the Right

    A song called "Love's Dance" by Earth, Wind & Fire came up on my iPod, and there is a part where they keep repeating, "I sure do! I sure do!" I initially heard this as "Short fuse! Short fuse!" even though that didn't make any sense. I may have been affected by the fact that I recently found a sticker from the vet's office that was supposed to go on my cat's carrier where it says, "Short fuse!!" in the notes as a warning to everyone who works there (with good reason, as he doesn't behave so well at his appointments ever since he was fixed). It turns out I was partially right about this one (in spite of what Google claimed), as she sang, "Tonight we go orangutan" and then someone yells "Bananas!" (which is the only reason I could figure it out).

    Yes, they did meet. Noah had said he wasn't ready for Grace to meet Katie and Grace got upset about it. She went over to the house to apologize to Noah, but he wasn't home and Katie answered the door. She pretended to be her new math tutor for a little while, but it was obvious she wasn't, so I think she came clean. Then Noah came back and Grace hid in a closet or something, but she got caught of course.

    I'm really glad that Coop turned out to be okay. I was very worried after her goodbye to Spencer before the game, but I guess that was because she knew she was taking a big risk and was nervous about it. After Tyrone kept talking and didn't shoot her right away, I figured she'd had a plan and the cops were going to show up. I liked her mom's realization that Coop's safety was more important than her own biases. The description of the episode talked about Spencer suffering a setback and someone unexpected helping him. Of course Corey was the person who helped him, but that description had just made me more worried about Coop. I was shocked when Chris got hurt so badly instead. I thought that Spencer warning him in that earlier episode that the new South Crenshaw receiver telegraphed his routes was going to be incorporated somehow. I'm relieved that Chris is not paralyzed, and if the show had a second season, they would probably explore his anger about his dreams of college football going away. I was kind of surprised by Layla's outburst, although it makes sense after she has been so buttoned up and gone through so much with few people to support her. I was afraid she had hurt herself and not just the items in the house before Olivia showed up. I think that Asher has a thing for Olivia now, given the way he looked at her after she interacted with his dad. They did set up an interesting cliffhanger about where Spencer would play his senior year with Billy being gone (though the principal would probably reject his resignation or something) and Corey taking over at South Crenshaw. Less interesting was the "who's the daddy?" ending about Dillon. I didn't see that coming because I didn't really know when the affair took place, though I probably could have if I had paid more attention. I would have continued to watch a second season, but I can't see that happening with the consistent 0.2 average in the key demographic.

    I was a bit thrown off when Maurice announced that Carlotta was "away" again. Queen Latifah had actually given a heads up about that, but I didn't see it until after the episode aired. After Mateo said that Maurice could only have the job at Gravity with Carlotta's approval, I thought maybe there would be a scene where Maurice asked her, and it probably would have been entertaining. That would have been nice to see instead of him suddenly having the job (even though the writers seem to have decided he's nice again). I think that Carlotta will probably offer Cassie her approval--with perhaps a warning about Maurice's shady ways--if she's asked, but it will probably kind of bother her. I wonder if Simone's movie storyline was permanently dropped. I was surprised it was even mentioned because it was a passion project of Nina's, but I pretended that Simone answered the question about the movie with "The writers couldn't think of anything else to do with that plot, so I'm doing this now." I liked her song, but I have the feeling that just getting the council to take a vote on sanctuary city status isn't going to get them the answer they want. Mateo's ex should be grateful that they never got married, considering the way we've seen him act in a marriage. I had skimmed the guest star credits for the first few episodes of the spring, so I was surprised and not at all pleased when Xander suddenly popped up. I really hope they won't think of making him a regular. It reminds me of when I watched the original Melrose Place and guest characters I didn't like would stick around seemingly forever. Gigi at first was a lot more obnoxious than I remembered, so I was glad she showed a different side again later in the episode. Alex sabotaging her microphone was great though. I had seen a note about the role of Gigi's aunt being cast, but it didn't mention that she actually had two aunts overseeing her. They are definitely a lot. Star's conflict with the woman in prison is predictable. I guess it is different from Simone being picked on by Karen and the girl who later killed herself in juvie because Simone is a nice person and Star is...well, Star. It was moving the first time an episode ended with her singing to herself alone in a cell, but won't be if they decide to end every episode that way. I know she wants to get out, but you'd think her lawyer would be the one who needs more time for preparation due to the evidence against Star. Nobody seems to be bothering with the fact that Charlene confessed to killing Brody and that this might need to be investigated. But I'm also still wondering what happened after Grandma Ruby killed the rapist. I'm guessing she probably didn't tell Derek anything about it.

    The Wendy Williams Show

    Wendy's situation was the lead story on Entertainment Tonight, complete with the photo of Kevin and Sharina from Daily Mail. They showed clips of a couple of Wendy's past denials from her show, but said that a source said that Sharina is pregnant and due to give birth any day, and that Kevin put Wendy in the sober house to get her out of the way when the baby arrives. After the story, host Kevin Frazier praised the Hunter Foundation and said that he had spoken to Kevin Hunter, who said he wasn't going to bother with the rumors and that he only cared about helping Wendy get better. (I would insert an eyeroll emoji if I knew how to make one.)

    The Wendy Williams Show

    I was looking through the list of Daytime Emmy nominees earlier, and Wendy is nominated for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host. I'm pretty sure she's been nominated other times (not last year, I don't think), but to be nominated for THIS season? I was seriously wondering if they didn't have enough shows that qualified to fill out this category. They have another category for "Informative Talk Show Host." The other nominees in Wendy's category are Kelly Ripa/Ryan Seacrest and the hosts of The Real, The Talk and The View.

    I feel so bad for Coop. It is an impossible situation. I know she didn't want blood on her hands, but Tyrone cannot be trusted at all. After he talked about knowing what he had to do, my heart was basically racing for the rest of the episode thinking he was actually going to have Coop killed. Even if Preach survives, I doubt he would name Tyrone as his assailant, and the cycle will just continue. I know Laura didn't want her kids to be lied to anymore, but I'm surprised she immediately told them about Billy's affair, considering the possibility of Olivia spiraling out of control. It was predictable that Asher stopped her from drinking, but I'm still glad he did. I hope that Olivia won't be mad at Layla and Spencer for too long. It wasn't their place to share such a big, devastating secret about her family, and it hadn't been very long. Considering the magnitude of what was revealed, Spencer handled things very well. I hope that Corey will stick around and not disappoint Dillon.

    The Wendy Williams Show

    I didn't see the show with Wendy's original comments, but this was her response on Twitter: "Showed love to Howard Stern this morning about his new book. Gonna buy it. Had his wife on my show several times. Being told that he’s being nasty to me on his show. It’s all good, Howie. I still admire you old man! The truth is the truth." She hardly ever posts anything on Twitter other than clips from her own show and generally tries to pretend that people criticizing her don't exist, so it must be major for her to actually acknowledge that something happened.

    The thing about the settlement definitely doesn't make a lot of sense. They just wanted to get some (legal) money into Karma to keep it going, so that's what they came up with, plus giving Derek something to do that didn't involve Alex. There was no follow-up at all on Grandma Ruby killing the rapist. I wonder if Derek even knows what happened. I have no idea how Star is going to get out of this one. Maybe if the truth comes out about Charlene (?) being a murderer and provoking her, she will be treated sympathetically. I admit that because of all the nuisance this storyline is going to be, I was disappointed that What's Her Name wasn't hurt worse (I think Star got Paris Jackson's character worse that that). But maybe that will work in Star's favor in the end. When she said her son's name was Davis, I was confused until she said she was giving him Noah's last name. I thought he was Davis Davis! I'm worried about the baby, especially with Noah doing everything himself and all his problems. It would be understandable for him to have some help with child care, but of course he has to do it all himself so that it will likely all blow up in his face. I was also disappointed in the Cassie/Xander storyline. I had hoped that with the drama of him kidnapping a child and all the guns being drawn in the previews after the fall finale, that this would wrap that up. But of course not. If Brandy has taken acting classes (and she has done a nice job), she should consider giving a referral for a coach to Chad Michael Murray. When Cotton pleaded to come along to get Jayden back, I pretended that Cassie was going to say, "I don't know, Cot. Then you might end up in the episode for more than 30 seconds." She still didn't have a whole lot to do though. I wonder what Jayden's mom thinks of all this. She has been absent for quite awhile. I think Amiyah even makes jokes about that on Twitter. I'm glad Simone told Alex to accept the offer to appear as a solo artist in Billboard. It's not like Take 3 is on top and Alex is sabotaging them. The group was sadly planning to break up anyway, and stupid Maurice took away whatever momentum they had. I still don't like the fact that Maurice ended up in the same sort of job that Carlotta fired him from, in basically the same place. The Brown family drama is quite painful to watch because it is so upsetting, but I was glad to see Ms. Patti on the show again. I just got to see her in concert recently, and it was really great! I liked the "Family Affair" number at the beginning, even though it had to end weird so that they could incorporate it into the show by making it Cotton's dream. Miss Bruce's one-liners were definitely welcome in such a heavy episode. When she said something about Star pushing out a Tootsie Roll, I snorted and woke up the cat! ETA: I'm wondering how Cassie can be free, let alone in a position to still run a club that was raided, without the evidence against Xander. Wasn't cooperating to bring him down the reason she was released? I don't know what will happen with Charlene (I finally looked up her name), but I have this fear that if the show goes on for several more seasons (which I doubt for a variety of reasons, some of which have nothing to do with the show itself), it will turn out that Arlene and Charlene are actually part of a set of octuplets, all with rhyming names, and the same actress will just keep popping up with new revenge schemes against Star.

    I don't understand why NBC didn't show an episode about Valentine's Day on Valentine's Day, considering that was a Thursday. It also would have made more sense to show an episode where Karen is still sad and thinking she'll never find love again before the episode where she reunited with Malcolm. Earlier in the season, they were showing episodes out of order to try to highlight David Schwimmer, thinking (incorrectly it turned out) that this would give a ratings boost; now it's like they're avoiding his episodes, saving them for after sweeps!

    S17.E02: Auditions (2)

    When the show was still on FOX (one of the seasons in Jennifer Lopez's second run), the teenage son of season 1 third-place finisher Nikki McKibbin got a golden ticket (I think Harry said no). I'm pretty sure he didn't actually made it to Hollywood because that was the season that they took everyone to an airplane hangar for more auditions and then put them on buses, with some contestants being sent back to the airport without getting to take part in Hollywood Week. It looks like this was in season 13 in 2014. I always wondered what Nikki's reaction was to that manufactured drama, as she seemed pretty invested in her son's audition (she was in the room, mouthing the words, etc.).

    Thanks. No matter how many times I saw the video, I couldn't seem to look quickly enough!

    I'm worried about Coop too, especially after the driver who'd just gotten out of prison seemed to be wise to her plotting and warned her about it at the end.

    I understand that the teacher sees potential in Spencer and wanted to push him to do a better job, etc. but it's rather hypocritical that he would threaten to fail him but not give J.J. any problems for his essay. Maybe he just didn't want to face the prospect of having J.J. in his class again. Or they're going to suddenly give J.J. a huge backstory where we find out he's actually a genius and a great writer and he just pretends to be dumb to be popular. But I doubt it, considering there are only three episodes left and they've now thrown Corey into the mix. Even if the big secret is that Grace cheated on him with Billy, he's still an ass to totally abandon the kids, although they'll probably throw in something about Grace insisting that he stay away, which I don't buy. Grandpa Baker is also an ass, as I presume he only asked Corey to come to the game to throw off Spencer so that Billy would be forced to give Jordan a chance (which he should have done anyway). It looks like there may not be a game in next week's show, although previews can be deceiving, so maybe their California is a much smaller state with far fewer playoff teams than they have in real life. (Even in my state, a big school has to win five playoff games to be state champion, and California is so big it has sectional playoffs too.) If they want to make Beverly and South Crenshaw meet up for a playoff game, it wouldn't necessarily have to be in the championship, but I guess that's more dramatic.
