-Rich keeps aloe and burn cream in his backpack, the cream smells like a dry cheap bar of soap and he hates it.
-Michael carries three fidget cubes around somewhere on his person at all times
-jeremy paints his nails
-christine paints Jeremy’s nails cuz she hates wearing it herself but likes doing it
-if rich paints his nails it’s /always/ yellow. Always.

It’s 23:27 and I’m here with some shit to say.
There’s Bob Marley undertones in Michael in the Bathroom.
Why is this important?
MICHAELS MUSIC CHANGES SLOWLY THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SONG!
God I need to go to sleep BUT HIS MUSIC IS CHANGING BECAUSE HE DOESNT WANT TO BE A LOSER DAMMIT!
Save my baby.
the thing about bmc is that there really isn’t a “villain.” obviously the squip sucks and we hate him, but he’s literally only doing what he’s been programmed to do. sure he’s got an unorthodox way of doing it, but his reason for existence is to get jeremy what he wants: popularity.
in fact, all the characters have flaws that, if fleshed out in a certain way, could make them the villain. jeremy literally makes the choice to cut his best friend out of his life for corn’s sake!
but the thing about it is, the show resolves itself in a way that’s fairly real. though they’re all brought together now because of the squip incident, most of their personalities don’t change much. chloe’s still kind of a bitch, rich is still sex-crazed (though now he’s thinking about the d aye), and jeremy acknowledges that there will always be voices in his head. and that’s okay. they’re still growing up and learning how to be decent people.
That little dance George Salazar makes while singing “I wanna dance with somebody!” in ‘Michael in the Bathroom’ is very unappreciated. Please look at this for at least 2 hours a day so you can fully appreciate it. Thank you.
