I love that Abbi still has that dress. 

Me too! Makes it more realistic plus her character paid a lot for it! Girl wants to get some good use out of it! I have also noticed that Ilana has reworn items. I'm excited for tonight's episode, last week's just wasn't my jam so hopefully this one won't disapoint!

from the Anthony King interview:

 

What I really like about Bevers is that he truly thinks Abbi is his friend.

That is the best part about Bevers!  But it's not enough to get me to stop hating Bevers.  Honestly, as much as I like Marry Me, and I do a fair bit, I kinda hope it'd get renewed just to keep Bevers less in Broad City.  Cause he's really awful, and not just cause he's gross.

 

It was an interesting choice to underplay that Ilana (mostly it was Ilana, I think) talked Bevers out of proposing to Melody.  Most sitcoms, Abbi would have been furious with Ilana for ruining her one chance to get rid of Bevers.

And Ilana was wearing her "white power suit" jacket which still had a stain on it underneath the American flag pin.  I love it. 

 

I especially love that it's clear we will never get to see Abbi's roommate.

Hannibal has chemistry with everyone on the show.

One subtle thing I really liked was at the start Lincoln and Ilana were walking together and she was holding his arm. I'm anti hand holding and I think taking the arm is more sophisticated.

Then later she's freaking out about him being her bf and I thought of that.

The joke about lawyers into trans girls was out of nowhere and hilarious.

How much do they ad lib? The slap seemed like it.

As I watched this episode, it struck me that it seemed like a live-action Bob's Burgers (without the sex). The booze cruise would be something Linda Belcher would be really into and not know the full details, drag Bob along, and the kids would get in trouble (locked in the storage room) on the boat. Gene would have pocketsful of shrimp.

Maybe this is an unpopular opinion but I hate when there is a character that you never see! There are exceptions like Howard's Mom on Big Bang Theory, because at least you can hear her and she has some awesomely funny things to say. Melody doens't bring much to the show besides having the Bevers connection. I think it would be more funny if he was Abbi's ex-step brother (or 3rd cousin or something) that her Mom forces her to help out and give him a place to stay. The family guilt would be the reason she never truly kicks him out.  I also think we will find out soon that Bevers doesn't really have his own apartment and that's why he is always at Abbi and Melody's apartment. Unless I've somehow missed something.

This was the first and only episode that I found Bevers funny, so it's gotta be one of my favourites.  I also love Lincoln so that helps.
