Emma: You’re listening to the Lovely Mass Podcast, your cozy consolation pay attention. This week we’re dissecting a favourite Consolation watch film for decor and residential inspiration. That is an ongoing sequence for us, and this week’s choice is Father of the Bride, 1991, and Nancy Myers Basic. It’s a must to say what yr as a result of it’s a remake, which I don’t assume I spotted once I first watched it as a result of I’ve truly by no means seen the unique. So that might be a enjoyable one to do too. Which wouldn’t be a re-watch for me, it could be a primary watch.
Elsie: It’s constituted of a film from 1950. After which additionally it was remade like final yr there was a Robert DeNiro father of the bride that you simply watched. I didn’t see it however I keep in mind you instructed me about it.
Emma: Sure, I watched it with my husband and he cherished it much more than I did, I believe, and we each cherished it. It’s so cute.
Elsie: Properly, I can not wait to get to Father of the bride. I believe we’ll in all probability do a separate episode sometime sooner or later for half two, which is the like they’re having infants. They’re each so good, I can’t decide which one I like extra, I like them each equal.
Emma: Yeah, I in all probability like them each equally, however they’re completely different. I like them for various causes. I really feel like Diane Keaton will get extra time in the second and I actually like that. She’s nice on this one too, however I don’t know. Anyway, if you happen to’ve by no means seen this one, we’ll inform you a bit bit concerning the plot. It’s also possible to Google it, however primarily it facilities round George Banks, performed by Steve Martin, who’s a father. His daughter sort of shortly and unexpectedly will get engaged and he’s having a tough time letting her develop up, and that’s kind of what’s occurring in his life. So he’s the daddy of the bride and so they resolve to have the marriage at their home, of their yard. And he’s coping with his daughter rising up, accepting this younger man who’s gonna be a son-in-law paying for the marriage and sort of all of the like humorous little, you already know, properly I’m the daddy of the bride, I gotta pay for, you already know, all these sort of, I believe a bit bit quaint, however I additionally perceive it.
Elsie: He’s bought this enormous quantity of complaining concerning the value of the marriage and cash, which may be very cute. And yeah, similar to Steve Martin having his like freak-out scenes, there’s a really iconic scene the place he begins ripping up the hotdog bun package deal as a result of he solely needs the identical variety of hotdogs and hotdog buns. And I imply, I simply need to say upfront, this film brings out my Steve Martin crush like no different. It’s actually intense for some purpose on this film. I believe it’s certainly one of his greatest healthful film performances. I’ve all the time cherished Steve Martin. We presently watch Solely Murders and I really like him a lot, it doesn’t matter what, and Martin Brief as properly. However this film, there’s one thing about it, it’s prefer it was written for, you know the way generally they write a film only for the actor. I didn’t see that within the trivia, however I really feel like they in all probability didn’t actually think about a variety of different actors apart from Steve Martin. He’s good.
Emma: Yeah. I do not know however he’s good at this.
Elsie: So do you could have any recollections from the primary time you watched? I don’t, I don’t keep in mind the primary time I watched it.
Emma: I don’t, I keep in mind rewatching it in all probability like 5 or 6 years in the past and my ideas then, however I don’t assume that was the primary time I noticed it, I doubt it, nevertheless it may have been. However one factor I keep in mind pondering was like, oh wow, narration as a result of it actually opens with a variety of. It actually nearly looks like a ebook as a result of Steve Martin’s character, George may be very like narrating. , we dwell on this home we blah, blah. He’s simply very very similar to providing you with a set of the scene, which doesn’t occur lots in motion pictures. I don’t really feel, it’s not tremendous, tremendous frequent.
Elsie: I used to be already crying on his first opening scene when he’s like, I by no means wanna transfer, I really like that we went tenting in our yard. All these little issues that he was saying, oh my god.
Emma: Yeah, he’s reminiscing about all his recollections together with his youngsters, which he additionally has a son who’s not absolutely grown but, so there’s nonetheless like that within the film too. However yeah, he’s simply coming to phrases with growing old and his youngsters growing old and life-changing, which is difficult. Nevertheless it’s actually candy. So for me, we’re gonna speak about decor and all that, however I additionally really feel like that is the film, not even simply the Nancy Meyers one, however of all the flicks, that simply feels to me prefer it may have been made in my city. I don’t essentially assume it’s made within the Midwest or I don’t assume folks can be like, oh, this feels very midwest.
Elsie: It’s imagined to be a small city in California.
Emma: Yeah as a result of the opposite home that’s like, you already know, the son-in-law, their mother and father really feel much more California. And he drives round, I believe you see palm timber however there’s simply one thing about this home and I simply guess possibly the household sensibilities and issues, which is one thing that’s all around the nation, nevertheless it simply felt to me very like, oh, this could possibly be the place I’m from, which I don’t really feel that lots in motion pictures to be trustworthy, particularly in motion pictures from sure eras, because it looks like a variety of California, New York, it doesn’t all the time really feel very center of the nation. I by no means really feel like this might have been in Missouri, so it simply has a really basic, could possibly be wherever very relatable, despite the fact that the home is sort of massive and wonderful, nevertheless it simply looks like not a totally unrelatable factor.
Elsie: Yeah, it’s undoubtedly certainly one of my favourite film homes of all time. If I have been dwelling on a vast funds in LA, that is the film home that I’d attempt the whole lot to get, it’s so wonderful. It’s such an awesome home, however I believe that our new home, one of many issues I favored about it’s that I used to be like, it has a bit tiny little bit of father of the bride. I believe it seems to be a bit bit extra like a unique film home. It has a bit tiny bit, and I’ll add extra over time, particularly the picket fence, I believe I can add that this yr. It’s actually a basic, stunning dwelling. I’ll hyperlink in our present notes, there’s this weblog that I like to take a look at referred to as Hooked on Homes, and so they have a complete publish concerning the father of the bride home and so they simply do film homes and so they sort of simply clarify what’s actual areas, what’s a sound stage. It’s simply sort of attention-grabbing for nerds like us. So, yeah, I’ll put that in there and you’ll take a look at photos if you happen to haven’t seen it shortly or it’s worthwhile to refresh your self. It’s an exquisite, iconic white clapboard home. So let’s speak concerning the decor. Oh my God, there are such a lot of good components of it and I’ll say that they do present the inside sort much more within the second film. If you take a look at the photographs, simply take a look at each of ’em as a result of it’s nice each methods. However my favourite factor about this film is that they present a scene the place the home is roofed in snow, and it’s such as you actually haven’t seen a home till you’ve seen it coated in snow, proper? So the outside of the house, certainly one of my favourite issues about it, has shutters. It’s so cute and it has a variety of vines rising on the entrance of the home, and a variety of flowers rising, which I believe is so basic and exquisite. Anytime I’ve ever talked to a landscaping particular person, they hate it and so they suggest in opposition to it and I assume it doubtlessly has its points. However certain this home, seems to be so good on there that it simply makes me wanna like develop vines on my home.
Emma: Yeah, I imply, they’re all through the film prepping to have the marriage outdoors, or at the least a part of the marriage is outdoors, in order that they’re wanting it to look actually manicured and all that. However I additionally assume the outside, they do such an awesome job of doing the identical factor with the exteriors, they do the inside, which is, it simply looks like very lived in. It doesn’t really feel like they only purchased this home, or this film crew simply pulled as much as this new home and it doesn’t actually have a lot character. I don’t even know if it was another person’s home, I don’t know. We’re in all probability gonna speak about that within the trivia, however I simply really feel prefer it looks like folks have been dwelling right here for 10, 20, 30 years, it looks like that. It looks like they planted these roses years and years in the past and now they’ve the entire bush. It feels very cozy. I personally am not a lot of a landscaping exterior crops particular person as a result of we don’t even mow our personal yard. We rent somebody to try this. I simply should not have a inexperienced thumb, however I do love strolling by folks’s homes who do. So I so respect it and I aspire, however man it’s not my period for it. Perhaps it by no means will probably be, I don’t know, we’ll see what occurs in life and preserve my thoughts open to it. However I’d like to stroll by this home as a result of I believe it could odor wonderful. I simply assume it could look stunning and yeah, they present us a scene the place it’s snowy, so that you sort of get to see the completely different seasons and that’s enjoyable.
Elsie: Subsequent time we go to LA we must always attempt to take an image there and simply be that loser for one minute as a result of it’s my favourite home. I do know it’s annoying that folks try this, however one time in your very favourite one possibly.
Emma: Hey, I by no means promised to not be annoying.
Elsie: That’s true. It’s in Pasadena and based on Hooked on Homes, they use two homes to movie. I believe that the yard is a unique home after which the entrance yard is that this home. So, the basketball is definitely from the opposite home, however I really feel like that’s an enormous a part of the nostalgia of this home is the scenes the place they’re taking part in basketball collectively and the film has a variety of little flashbacks the place it reveals his daughter Annie as a bit lady, after which he realizes she’s a lady and it’s going backwards and forwards and it’s tugging at your heartstrings. Lately our daughter requested if we may get a basketball aim at our new home, and I similar to about misplaced it and I used to be like, I’m gonna make it look similar to the daddy of the bride. I sort of simply wanna make Jeremy into Steve Martin from Father of the Bride, is that dangerous?
Emma: No, you need to do it. When you may do it, do it.
Elsie: It’s an aspiration. It’s so romantic. I really like the basketball scenes. It’s certainly one of my favourite stills. It counts as its personal room, I believe as a result of it’s so particular.
Emma: It additionally has the additional advantage of all of the stuff you simply stated, but in addition it reveals off the sneakers as a result of he owns a shoe enterprise referred to as Sidekicks. So that you’re seeing the tennis sneakers as they’re taking part in basketball. However yeah, we additionally had a basketball aim in our driveway rising up. I keep in mind taking part in with our dad, we’d play horse lots. The place you’re like attempting to make the hampers and spell out horse, issues like that. You have been extra into basketball than I used to be, however I’ve recollections of that. So I believe that’s a part of it too, is I’m like, yeah, that’s a factor. All households have the basketball aim within the driveway. That’s not essentially true however on this film, you get to see it and it sort of hits dwelling.
Elsie: I like it. One other favourite a part of this house is the kitchen. It’s talked about typically. It’s kind of similar to the idyllic American kitchen, while you analyze it while you’re actually wanting, it’s very cluttered. It’s not that nice, nevertheless it’s the sensation that it provides you after they’re having scenes in there’s actually, actually good. So yeah, I actually wanna perceive what it’s that makes that good kitchen feeling.
Emma: Yeah, I agree. If you actually take a look at it, it’s a massive kitchen however you’ll be able to sort of inform from the skin of the home, it’s not gonna be a small kitchen. In order that’s not essentially shocking. It doesn’t really feel like there are any super-expensive finishes. It’s not like they’ve these loopy marbled counter tops or something. It feels sort of relatable, though it’s a very giant kitchen.
Elsie: Kitchens within the Nineteen Nineties have been actually completely different than now. There have been completely different countertop developments, I believe there are butcher counters. They usually actually didn’t have a stable floor and marble.
Emma: Yeah. It was extra like tiled counter tops. That was extra in.
Elsie: Yeah, it was like tiled or butcher or regardless of the different sort of fake-looking marble is named.
Elsie: Yeah, laminate. When you actually take a look at nineties motion pictures, you actually don’t see granite or quartz or marble except they’re displaying that it’s like an vintage kitchen.
Emma: And even just like the home equipment on this home, the oven and range prime seems to be very nice, I don’t know the model. It sort of regarded like a KitchenAid to me, however I don’t actually know. However then the fridge is like this black aspect by aspect. It doesn’t actually seem like something, all that particular. It doesn’t look crappy or something, however I simply imply all of it seems to be relatable, good center class, not like loopy fancy, not like, oh, this can be a restaurant kitchen and cooks dwell right here. It doesn’t actually really feel that method, however on the similar time, it does really feel like an actual household there who cooks as a result of it’s a little cluttered. In a great way, I believe in a homey method, there’s like pans hanging above the island and so they seem like they’ve been used. They don’t seem like a model new set that some set particular person hung up proper earlier than they began taking pictures. Simply doesn’t all look tremendous matchy, matchy. So it feels actual, despite the fact that it’s not, it’s a film.
Elsie: Yeah. It’s an excellent feeling kitchen. One other factor that’s sort of all the time in a Nancy Meyers film is an out of doors eating scene, and so they have an exquisite outside eating scene with candles and it simply each time see them, I’m like, why don’t we eat open air with candles? We simply don’t try this and I wanna try this. It’s like an aspiration that’s so attainable. It’s easy, however I simply don’t try this. So yeah, it’s one thing that I actually wish to incorporate.
Emma: Yeah, I guess your women would actually wanna try this too. They love consuming outdoors, candles make it much more particular.
Elsie: Sure. Okay. So about the lounge. Lately I requested my husband, Jeremy, what do you concentrate on the sort of couch? And I confirmed him a white slipcover couch, like a Nancy Meyers. It’s sort of in all her motion pictures. There’s sort of by no means another sort of couch apart from these white slipcover sofas. It’s very basic. I don’t see as lots of my buddies utilizing them although. It’s a bit little bit of an old-person factor, proper? I requested him, you already know as a result of they’ve them round and it’s attention-grabbing. It’s undoubtedly an attention-grabbing factor for somebody like me who switched sofas so many occasions, this appears extra washable, one thing completely different, appears extra long-lasting. Looks as if it’s not attempting to be the assertion of your room as a result of I’ve a factor for coloured sofas, which doesn’t all the time work out as probably the most long-lasting buy determination. So anyway, I confirmed him the image and he was just like the strongest response. Completely not, he was like, no method and he by no means does that. So yeah, I used to be curious what you concentrate on them as a result of I believe I’m 50 50 truly. I wasn’t attempting to speak him into it, I in all probability may have. I used to be simply gauging the temperature and it was chilly as ice. Yeah. I’m curious, what do you concentrate on the white slipcover couch factor?
Emma: I’d like to know extra from somebody who has one or simply opinions, I assume as a result of my impression is that they’d be simpler to wash as properly. So if that’s truly true, then I’m like, Ooh, that’s fairly attention-grabbing as a result of we’re a family that has youngsters and canine and I let Oscar eat snacks on the sofa generally and you already know, we get crumbs, all that. So yeah, I need issues which might be fairly washable. I additionally don’t have a powerful sense of what these prices are versus a few of the different couches that we are likely to gravitate in direction of. However the principle factor that places me not ice chilly, however extra within the center or possibly a bit scorching, is I like the concept the sofa just isn’t essentially the assertion within the room as a result of I simply are likely to wanna have artwork or colourful throw pillows, or truthfully, I’m a kind of folks now the place I like wanna put out my Halloween throw pillows after which my Christmas throw pillows, my all yr spherical throw pillow. So I sort of like a sofa that’s gonna exhibit my seasonal decor and like the opposite issues within the room, I sort of favored that concept. However once I’m procuring, I haven’t shopped for a sofa in fairly a while, however I do sort of transfer in direction of the coloured ones or extra of an announcement piece as a result of they only actually stand out. They only look extra attention-grabbing than a boring sofa. I assume not, these are boring, however you already know, much less of an announcement.
Elsie: Yeah. Properly, that’s attention-grabbing. Within the nineties decor books, you know the way Elise has the nineties decor books factor she does on Instagram? They all the time have them, so possibly it is rather like a really nineties factor, however I do know they’re at Pottery Barn and locations like that, so I don’t know. I’m fascinated with our listeners, we’d love to listen to what you concentrate on these sofas as a result of I don’t know, I believe it’s possibly considerably polarizing. And when you have them, please ship us a message and inform us what you assume, if it’s higher, if it’s exhausting to maintain clear something, we do not know. We’re clueless. However yeah, I’m inquisitive about our new dwelling, you already know, it’s like a bit extra conventional and I’ve not picked out any kinda couch but, and I have to, and it’s like, what do I do? I don’t know. Anyway. Okay, so my favourite second from the entire film, is that if I have been going to make a wall artwork of 1 nonetheless within the bathtub with the swans in it.
Emma: I knew you have been gonna say that, yeah.
Elsie: Oh my god. Yeah, I wish to be an artwork painter. It’s simply so cute, it’s iconic.
Emma: Yeah. It’s the second we have been like, oh man.
Elsie: I like it. Okay, so different cozy inspirations from the film, will be vogue, meals, drink, or something. I truthfully assume Diane Keaton is sort of a fashion icon. I wish to be the whole lot about her from all ages she’s ever been in her day.
Emma: At all times and Ceaselessly. Yeah, each film she’s ever in.
Elsie: She’s the final word girl.
Emma: Yeah, she actually is. She actually is and he or she seems to be lovely on this film. Not shocking.
Elsie: One in every of my favourite issues is that the opening credit of the film, the producer and all that is rather like champagne bubbles for like 5 straight minutes and I don’t know, I assume I didn’t discover it previously, however this time I used to be like, that’s truly so cute, like lovely.
Emma: It’s, yeah. And it actually units the scene for this film’s a couple of wedding ceremony and celebration and romance, you already know? Yeah.
Elsie: Yeah. It’s cute. The opposite factor is the marriage tent so ever since we’ve been beginning to put together to maneuver to our new dwelling, which does have an acre and a half. I dunno if I’ve stated that earlier than, it’s a reasonably large yard. I don’t know if I’d wanna say this out loud, however I’ll. Cuz why not? I’m obsessed that I need certainly one of my youngsters to get married in our yard and I believe it’s from this film. I’m obsessive about it although and it’s like, that’s not an inexpensive obsession to have as a result of it’s probably not your selection and also you shouldn’t be into
Emma: Yeah. Forcing one thing like that. Perhaps they may, however yeah.
Elsie: And it could possibly be one thing else too.
Emma: What about this although? What if we hire a kind of tents for some sort of celebration? Or, I imply, I’m gonna flip 40 in a pair extra years. We could possibly be Emma’s birthday, a fortieth celebration, otherwise you and Jeremy have an enormous anniversary social gathering if you happen to needed to or one thing the place, you already know?
Elsie: I’ll make this type of fortieth celebration the scale of a marriage, that’s high-quality.
Emma: Okay, nice. Nice. There’s nothing I really like greater than a variety of consideration on my birthdays.
Elsie: Yep. I’ll provide you with a 10-minute-long awkward toast similar to I did at your wedding ceremony. I’ll do all of it.
Emma: Oh my God. All I imply is if you’d like a kind of tents in your yard, I guess we will give you a purpose.
Elsie: Yeah, no, that sounds good. I agree. Just like the scenes with the greenery across the doorways and it’s simply so cute.
Emma: Yeah, we gotta do it within the spring or summer season. It might probably’t be my birthday now that I’m excited about it. That’s in January. That’s not gonna work. We gotta do one thing within the spring or summer season, possibly for our mother. Anyway, we will discover a purpose to place that tent in your yard. Don’t fear about it.
Elsie: Yeah, that sounds actually good.
Emma: We may get some swans too.
Elsie: May we actually?
Emma: I’m certain we may, please. I don’t know what it prices, however yeah, I’m certain we may.
Elsie: It sounds nice. Right here’s my bank card, signal me up. Okay.
Emma: I really like his little automotive, his like sports activities automotive that he drives round. I’m probably not a automotive particular person.
Elsie: What sort of automotive is that?
Emma: I don’t know, yeah, we’d need to look it up. It’s so cute. I used to be gonna say, I’m probably not a lot of a automotive particular person. I simply drive a Subaru and I’ve for years and I like it. Like, I don’t care. I’d by no means get myself a flowery little automotive. It’s not an indulgence that I personally need, however I do like how a lot he appears to love it and he’s driving round. It’s like his particular little factor, clearly. And I sort of similar to that vibe. I get it. After which additionally, I really feel like this film ought to get credited for just like the dad sneakers as a result of he’ll put on this type of particular tennis sneakers due to his shoe firm. However I really feel like that’s the dad shoe look and I really feel like this film is likely to be just like the origin story or one thing.
Elsie: That’s true. How come that folks say that Tom Hanks is America’s dad as a substitute of Steve Martin?
Emma: I don’t know. Most likely Steve Martin’s pissed about it. No, I don’t know.
Elsie: I really feel like he sort of earned it.
Emma: You might have multiple dad. They may each be the dad.
Elsie: That’s true. Why not be like Mama Mia? That’s high-quality. Okay, so I had down, did this film age properly, or did it not age properly? I believe it aged very properly on the spectrum of Nineteen Nineties motion pictures, which is what we’ve largely been rewatching just lately. I believe it’s up there on the very prime. I believe it’s very watchable. Even Martin Brief’s efficiency, I don’t know if they’d put that in a film now. However I believe it’s so dangerous that it’s good and it sort of works. I don’t know. What do you assume?
Emma: Yeah, I believe that’s the one factor that I’m like, I don’t learn about that accent selection or what sort of character he’s doing precisely, however he’s doing his factor, I’m undecided about that with the growing old, I don’t know. After which I additionally assume it’s simply not as conventional now that, the daddy of the bride pays for the marriage. However I additionally assume this film doesn’t deal with it, there are usually not actually a variety of sexist feedback about it. It’s extra, I take into consideration a person who’s growing old and coping with that and seeing his daughter develop up and stuff. So I truly assume all of that age like rather well and good. However I do assume in the event that they remade it, I imply they do have a brand new one now, but when they’re making it proper now this yr, a few of that might dialogue and issues would in all probability change. However I don’t really feel like something in it makes me really feel like, Ooh, that is so dated and that’s not good. I believe it sort of works and ladders as much as the theme of the film.
Elsie: I utterly agree. Okay. Do you wanna hear some trivia?
Emma: Sure. At all times.
Elsie: Okay. This one is more durable to search out a variety of trivia on, however I’ll present you what I’ve. So the primary piece of trivia is that Eugene Levy seems in each movies, Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride, half two from 1995, however as completely different characters in every.
Emma: Yeah, that’s true. That’s humorous.
Elsie: Yeah, I didn’t discover that.
Emma: I didn’t discover that and now you’re saying, I’m like, yeah, that’s true. That’s actually humorous. They only actually favored working with him. They’re like, we should carry him again. However you already know, we had this completely different character we’d like, so. Yeah.
Elsie: Yeah, I believe if I have been making a film, I’d in all probability decide Eugene Levy each single time, it doesn’t matter what. In order that is sensible. Okay, so the daughter on this film is known as Annie and within the Mum or dad Entice, the Nancy Meyers model, the daughters are named Annie and Halle, that are the names of Nancy Meyers’s daughters. Cute, huh? Sure, so I’ve already stated this earlier within the episode, however that is my primary most coveted film home. Really, possibly I’d give it a tie for, I don’t know. I don’t know, however I’ll say, that is my primary most coveted film home in California. That is the one, it’s similar to, it’s so iconic. It’s so wonderful, and I simply love that it’s an actual home that somebody will get to dwell in, whoever they’re, good for them.
Emma: I agree. Yeah, and similar, it is likely to be tied with, It’s Difficult, Meryl Streep’s home. However I don’t know. I do really feel like this one feels extra, like could possibly be within the Midwest to me, not simply Southern California, despite the fact that it’s in California. So I don’t know, however yeah, I really like this home a lot. I really like this kitchen a lot. All the things about it.
Elsie: Yeah. It’s a really basic century dwelling. Okay, so that is fairly frequent, however the entire interiors from the film are a sound stage, so none of them are actually in that home. All of it’s simply began from scratch, and I believe they did a very good job. They’re like stained glass and woodwork and it feels very, very genuine for a historic dwelling, particularly styled within the nineties. And yeah, simply the correct amount of muddle. Which I believe makes it really feel much less like a film set and extra like somebody’s actual dwelling.
Emma: Agree. Yeah. They did an incredible job.
Elsie: Okay. So that is only a micro element that I similar to love, however within the first film there’s truly, if you happen to look carefully within the kitchen behind her sink and stuff, there’s truly cow print tile on the partitions with little cows on it. After which when it comes again for the second film, it’s switched to impartial tile. Isn’t that cute?
Emma: I didn’t discover the cow print tile. Yeah. Now I wanna re-watch it once more simply to see the tile. Yeah, I didn’t discover that. That’s attention-grabbing.
Elsie: Once we have been in highschool, certainly one of our shut buddies, his mother had a cow-themed kitchen that was a ten, prefer it was not a bit bit cow themed. It was a ten out of 10 cows-themed kitchens.
Emma: I had one other good friend whose mother had a pig kitchen. All pigs. Yeah. Why did my kitchen have a theme? What’s mistaken with me? Now that I’m excited about it?
Elsie: Within the nineties, I believe folks considered their kitchens a bit bit extra like a nursery the place you had a theme and I don’t assume folks do sort of anymore. However yeah, I believe the cow factor is humorous as a result of it’s develop into a pattern, once more, like a Gen Z pattern just lately, the previous couple of years. And it’s not for me, nevertheless it’s like I see that it’s there and I acknowledge that it’s trending.
Emma: I prefer it for the nostalgia, I need to say. However there isn’t a method in hell if I had a complete pig kitchen, that Trey would come dwelling and be like, that is completely high-quality, and I’m not gonna remark about this, there’s no probability.
Elsie: Yeah, it’s fairly delicate although, cuz you don’t even actually discover it. However now you’ll, now you’ll see it.
