So we have discussed all the things Foggy probably lied about (and did not actually get away with) when he and Matt were in college, but what about all Matt’s lies, which Foggy probably figured out once he started thinking back?

  • All those times Matt “accidentally” threw out food in the fridge that Foggy insisted was still good, and Foggy was so bummed about not getting to eat that leftover curry from the weekend but Matt was clearly super embarrassed about his mistake, so how could he be mad. There’s no way Matt didn’t know which food it was. Foggy knows that now. What was wrong with that food??? That time everyone from Pearson’s class went for Chinese and ordered duck but Matt insisted he needed someone to share the spicy beef with, and then everyone got sick but them – DID MATT KNOWINGLY SAVE HIM FROM HORRIBLE POOPS?
  • Matt would occasionally blurt out something awkward and incriminating about Foggy right in front of the girl Foggy was trying to get with, or was already dating, and it was like, never HORRIBLE stuff but it was always just enough for her to ditch him/dump him, and now that Foggy thinks back both girls that happened with turned out to be absolutely awful people and how did Matt know? Andi was a serial cheater - did Matt smell the other guy(s) on her? Had he overheard Rachel’s bizarre racist conspiracy theories from the other side of the room, long before Foggy discovered hints of them on Facebook after they’d split up? Is Matt his anti-Cupid? (But like in a good way?)

MCC-H : “Houston”

Blue ISS Flight Control Room

“Tell them to prepare for open connection and broadcast, five minutes and counting.”

Heero glanced over his shoulder at the pushy man who stood diagonally behind him. He had spent the entire first half of his shift listening to this MSNBC representative nitpick and lord over all of the Mission Control Center staff until everyone was red-faced and irritated, ready for this month’s broadcast to be over. Every last Friday of the month NASA partnered with MSNBC to stream a fifteen-minute interactive live broadcast from the crew of the International Space Station to the local public schools in Houston, Texas. The Mission Control Center staff loathed ISS!LIVE broadcasts, and it wasn’t uncommon for many of the non-essential staffers to call out sick or to schedule their conveniently planned family emergencies on that day.

“Is anyone even listening to me?!” the media  rep exclaimed as he paced down the rows of empty desks in search of someone to annoy.

Heero saw their resident Chief of Space Medicine Chang Wufei at his console directly behind him. The Chinese man ducked his scowling face down behind his “SURGEON” placard in an attempt to hide from the obnoxious T.V. rep.

“Well? Aren’t you going to tell them?” the man asked impatiently. As he leaned over Heero’s control panel his hand landed on his keyboard. Heero’s eyebrow twitched uncontrollably as he summoned his self control to keep from slamming his fist against the pompous prick’s nose. It was common knowledge that touching Heero’s desk was absolutely forbidden. The MSNBC rep had been forewarned, and yet he still insisted on encroaching upon Heero’s console every chance he could.

The man was lucky he was casually dating their Public Affairs Officer, otherwise he would have knocked him on his ass already. He could see Relena looking at him apologetically from behind her clipboard at her work station in the rear of the room.

He tapped the side of his headset to activate his microphone. “Five minutes before broadcast,” he spoke flatly into it, paused and glanced at the synchronized digital clock on his desk that read UTC time. “More accurately, four minutes, five seconds and counting…”

“Howard Epstein didn’t invent the condiment packet … But Epstein, who was in the business of manufacturing flavored freeze pops, was passionate about small packages. In 1968—at the prompting of a Chinese ­employee—Epstein realized the plastic packets he used for freeze pops would happily hold soy sauce.”
