Choi has spent the last five minutes looking for Marie. He finally finds her in the Chillout Lounge.
Choi: “Marie? Oh, there you – Marie! Oh, Marie, don’t – don’t cry.”
Marie (wailing): “I can’t help it, I might have to leave today and I don’t wanna leave. I don’t wanna leave you.”
Choi (softly): “Marie, even if you have to walk out the door today, you are not leaving me. Don’t think that way.”
Marie: “I’m so worried, Choi. I’m so afraid. I…”
Choi: “Fear is only an anticipation of what has not yet come. Our fears can seem so great; but the truth of our connection is greater still. Come here and dry your eyes. No matter what happens from here on out, I am glad I came here and I am glad I met you. That can’t be undone.”
Choi smiles lopsidedly as he lifts her chin. “Besides, you promised to try my mother’s tom chuet. I’m not letting you get out of that.”
Marie finally manages a bit of a watery smile and nods.
Amelia looked down at her protruding belly as she waited for Owen to get back. She had done well at not bothering him too much when she needed something like this, but that night she couldn’t resist. She couldn’t believe that she was already around seven months pregnant. After everything, she was feeling relieved that there wasn’t going to be too much time left, but she was still feeling anxious about what was to come in the next several weeks until she delivered.
Owen came into the house carrying a paper bag from the nearest takeout food place in one hand, and a jar of dill pickles in the other hand. He set them both down on the kitchen counter and Amelia approached him. He pressed a kiss to his wife’s cheek and smiled softly. Things were better between them ever since the night when she opened up.
Never let me make a cartoon because I would do this and you do not want this trust me
basically no plot, just establishing characters, 30 episodes
seems to have a plot but also seems like nothing actually happens, 30 episodes
plot lines come out of the blue, new characters everywhere, plot development minimal but there, 30 episodes
so much lore. just lore. an entire season of lore. 25 episodes.
more plotlines. It looks like something deep and meaningful to the plot is going to happen but then it just sort of doesn't and we're left with even more loose ends, 30 episodes
wait for it
mostly filler? some character development too I guess??? where is the plot????? 20 episodes
all the plot. Every single plot line resolved one by one as the pieces are violently thrown together. Callback after callback. Flashback after flashback. Everything is happening now, and the show will never be the same. It every loose end is slowly braided together into merging plotlines. 40 episodes.
a sequence of episodes released one after another night-by-night. It's revealed that THIS was the reason for the hiatus and the filler season. they were making this. the plot converges. Grand finale incoming. 15 episodes
two-hour movie wrapping up everything in the cartoon, pushing the final moral and ending the weirdness I have wrought.
