Jack's Special Presents: You're The Worst
All About That Paper
Jimmy and Gretchen may or may not have hit a milestone in their relationship when Gretchen offhandedly says "Check in later?" as they head out one morning, a phrase Jimmy quickly derides, and Gretchen has to qualify her texts throughout the day as "Not checking in, just saying 'hey.'" Jimmy, for his part, is spending the day with an eccentric but wildly successful author, Jonathan R. Strasburg, who likes Jimmy's work; their meeting turns out to be a day-long job interview involving strip clubs and other insane field trips, as Strasburg believes good writing comes from chaos, and he wants to mentor Jimmy. Gretchen's day involves a work crisis as Sam builds himself a "panic fort" he refuses to come out of after a split with Honey Nutz and Shitstain, and she has to negotiate a peace between them. Meanwhile, Lindsay thinks she's gotten a sign that Paul still has feelings for her, but gets slapped back to reality when she gets served with divorce papers. When it becomes clear that he's serious, Lindsay resorts to desperate measures. And at Edgar's veteran's group, a couple of comics are brought in to help the vets deal with their trauma through the magic of improv. Edgar learns to "never bail out when you're scared" and "trust your instincts"... but the lesson may have come a hair too late.
