IN PLAIN SIGHT “Girls, Interrupted” Review

IN PLAIN SIGHT "Girls, Interrupted" Review

IN PLAIN SIGHT “Girls, Interrupted” Season 4 Episode 10 – With Mary moving along in her pregnancy (well, moving along in that they’re not hiding it any longer so we’ve now sped up to real time), everyone keeps ordering her to relax. Stan even goes so far as to send her on an easy errand to try and help her out in that department. But much like Marshall’s plan last week to give her the easier witness to handle, this one backfires as well. Mary ends up wandering around the desert after her dog and meets up with various people who each give her a message in their own way.

She’s still planning on giving up her baby but now the issue for her is deciding on the right family to choose. The family she meets in the desert shows her that there’s no set definition of a “normal” family and people that she may have thought were a little strange, are actually good folks. Between them, the witness she was delivering a message to who actually gave her a message of her own, and her spirit guide known as Oscar, Mary is still on he same path but maybe with some additional insights now as to what she should be looking for. Oh and thanks to Oscar she just may have narrowed down the search to a family called the Templetons, but I’m probably getting ahead of myself.

Thanks to Mary’s condition, we’re seeing a lot more of Marshall and Stan working together these days and I gotta say I like it. Not that they could ever compare to Marshall and Mary, but Marshall and Stan do have their own special sort of rapport. Stan’s not so good with the words so I’ve noticed that he and Marshall tend to have a few more silent exchanges, which are hilarious and meaningful in their own right. By using them we also still get to have the exciting chases that aren’t really going to work with Mary now that she’s approaching full-on waddle mode.

My favorite bits..

“Obgine”? Really Marshall?

Marshall knowing immediately that Mary was lying about telling Mark about the baby.

Mary calling Marshall “Dick”.

“He can’t say it.” “Fun to watch him try.”

“And yeah I might be a tiny bit irritable.” “Never.”

Mary telling Marshal to shut up, despite the fact that he hadn’t said a word.

“Pregist” and “Pregism” – Haha! Love it.

Oscar as a bumble bee doggie – So cute!

Marshall taking the toy out of Stan’s hand.

“Now it’s like some Kate Gosselin pod person took her over.”

Marshall asking about Mary’s “other candidate for placement.” I just love how these two keep referring to the baby using their work terminology.

Knowing that Oscar was going to take off before Mary opened the door. Yep, there’s no doubt that Mary’s not a dog person because ALL dog people knew that’s what the little bugger was gonna do.

Finding out that Marshall played the oboe as a kid. That didn’t surprise me at all. His dad hiding it from him? Nope, didn’t see that coming.

Mary asking the family if they’d seen a pitbull about the size of a pitbull.

Ooh. Stan going all tough guy on the annoying teen. Go Stan!

Stan stumbling over himself when he inadvertently referred to Mary as a “big girl”. Ha!

Mary asking if you could eat the alpacas. Nothing like cutting straight to the chase, eh Mary?

“Charlie Sheen” now being used as a verb. That is awesome.

Mary saying that the leash reminded her of her high school boyfriend’s van. Har.

Aw, Oscar is Mary’s spirit guide?

“Give my regards to the sweatlodge and/or asylum.”

“Next time maybe take ‘over my dead body’ for a spin.”

Stan quietly handing Marshall his keys. I am loving the little silent interactions these two are having in this episode.

Yay Oscar, good boy!

“Scalping the witness? Nice.”

Mary making fun of Marshall for playing the oboe. Oh yeah there was no way she was gonna let that one slide.

Mary claiming she wasn’t attached to Oscar but not letting Marshall take him either.

“Oh yeah that’s right, just fart the jerky out.” – I laughed so hard at that, I had to pause my DVR so I could get it out of my system before going back to my review.

Awww…Marshall pulling out his oboe.

And of course Oscar leaves Mary only the Templeton file. She can deny it all she wants but he is SO her spirit guide.

What did you think of this episode of In Plain Sight? Got any favorite bits or least favorite bits of your own? I’d love to hear from you!
