(based on gav's wife swap comment in the latest minecraft) new rt doc idea: michael and gavin swap significant others for a week so meg/michael live together and have fun hanging out and then lindsay/gavin live together and they just have to try and not burn the house down
skdkd they’d have completely different goals like meg and michael are like “we’ll consider it a success if we have fewer than five legitimate disagreements the entire week” and gavin and lindsay are like “if the house doesn’t look like someone threw a frat party in it by the end of the week we’re calling it a win”
meg after a week: yeah, michael fixed a couple of problems we were having with the house that gavin was responsible for calling and getting fixed for the last three months but didn’t–what? no, michael didn’t call about them he just fixed them himself–and we set up an equal schedule for laundry/dishes/sweeping/cooking/etc and learned how to work around michael being an early riser while i sleep in and all in all michael got me hooked on mountain monsters and i think we did good.
lindsay after a week: we got fast food every night and michael is gonna have to do the dishes when he gets back but. this house? still standing. team spouse-swap? winning.
hardcut to michael facepalming and saying “YOU CAN’T JUST NAME YOURSELF AFTER WHAT YOU’RE DOING. THAT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. JUST ACCEPT YOU’RE TEAM LOSERS. YOU WERE TEAM LOSERS WHEN YOU CALLED YOURSELF TEAM BOAT RACE FOR ONE ROUND OF MARIO PARTY. YOU WERE TEAM LOSERS WHEN YOU CALLED YOURSELF TEAM LINGUISTICS FOR A ROUND OF ON THE SPOT. YOU’RE TEAM LOSERS NOW. and me and meg? well uh, to no one’s surprise, team winners won. by a pretty large margin, actually. did lindsay and gavin exceed my expectations for them? absolutely. were the expectations they exceeded the absolute bare minimum of functional? yes.“
