last chance for paris

Hey everyone look at these fuckin’ NERDS @ro-fo-sho and @queerquestion. (Unrelated sexy lumberjack @maplehoofs bigfoot posing in the back).

Okay alright I finally figured out what really gets me about the “I wanna get home and see Amy! Don’t you want to see Kevin?” part of last night’s episode

Ray and Kevin are one of the central core couples in Jake’s life - I imagine Terry and Sharon are too, though we don’t get to hear about them as much unfortunately. Like look at how far Jake went last season to make sure Holt got a fair chance to get to Paris to see Kevin!! Look at how hard he worked to supplement the gift basket Kevin sent Holt that the rest of the squad accidentally tore into!! He’s got so much respect for their relationship and it’s so blatantly obvious in the acts of service he performed on their behalf last season

So the fact that he lumps himself and Amy into the mental compartment he has for Ray and Kevin in such an emotionally climactic moment is just…….

I think what I’m trying to say is that I’m really glad b99 hasn’t gone down the “what if I become my father” self-sabotaging route that so many shows go down. Like rather than automatically classifying his relationship with Amy as being doomed to be like his parents’ relationship, like countless other protagonists have in the past, his standard for excellence is Ray and Kevin and his attitudes and actions regarding his relationship with Amy reflect that

I’m just really emotional
