Madeline and Jenny explore the Mandy Moore Shane West romantic tragedy , "A Walk to Remember" or as Jenny says "The Original Big Sick". They discuss sweaters, Southern Accents and Switchfoot as well as what the phrase "lay it on a brother like a PopTart" means. They talk about the evolution of Mandy Moore and the equally groundbreaking evolution of Mandy Moore's bangs. They also talk about ambitions, yearbook quotes and what similar triangles are. They talk about TicTac's for an inordinate amount of time as well as the urban legend about the clowns in vans. Finally, they talk about what would be #1 on their bucket lists (Hint Jenny's involves the stars of Rush Hour) and the fleeting hotness of Shane West. It's a good ep!
