This is the most relentessly "awfulsome" episode of MIHH ever. I am horrified at myself for laughing while Jeanie is crying and Paul is talking about being suicidal. Now I hate myself even more.

Well if you're a horrible person so am I. Couldn't help but smile when they were both breaking down. :oops:

Very moving episode. I was listening with earbuds in the waiting room for an oil change. I had to keep clearing my throat, trying to hide the fact that I was holding back my own tears. Maybe that wasn't the best setting for listening to this episode.

Something about a woman crying. I totally fell in love with Jeanie, and a little with Paul too, although he didn't have the crying girl thing going on. Of course, as a guy, I'm ashamed. I'm not supposed to wear my heart on my sleeve like this.

So thanks Jeanie, Paul for opening my heart with this episode, and for a giving me something to feel ashamed of during an oil change. I needed that.
