Last week, “Drunk Mystery” made us all laugh hysterically at a few different moments. We learned about infamous disappearances and murders that were put into a new perspective by the inebriated hosts of the educational programming. Here are a few of my favorite moments and what I thought while watching the episode!
Alison Rich Talks About Agatha Christie
No matter how hard she tried to hide it, it was impossible to miss Alison spitting her drink all over that pillow because she was laughing about her own “vocal fry.”
Kirsten Dunst playing Agatha Christie playing an alter ego during the disappearance of Agatha Christie that wasn’t really a disappearance at all. I’ve seen some great portrayals of historical figures in this show, but…damn. Get it, Kirsten!
Kyle Mooney Discusses D.B. Cooper
Kyle at the beginning of the episode, after taking two shots with Derek and apparently forgetting that he has a last name: “Hi. I’m Kyle.”
Kyle a few minutes later, lying face down on the carpet after drunkenly tripping while trying to race over to a pizza box: “I’m fine.”
You’re not fine, Kyle, but the story was a lot more colorful because of that and we’re all so proud of you.
Kyle’s rambling became incoherent at time, but this all-star cast kept rolling with the slurred words and did a phenomenal job syncing their actions with his story! Somewhere out there, the spirit of D.B. Cooper is stroking its own ego after watching this masterpiece.
Georgia Hardstark Explains the Circleville Letters
“That was…’Law and Order’?”
“No that was ‘dun-dun-dun’…I think that’s like…’this is creepy’.”
Georgia’s expressions and reactions were enough to get some laughs, but what really made this story great was the over-the-top reenactment of a possibility leading up to the murder of Ron Gillespie. The characters acted as drunk as Mary sounded and it just made everything so much better. And I have to say, I was impressed with Derek’s conclusion that Mary was behind the who-dun-it all along.
