The scene where Peter helps kill a pig so it can be cooked for dinner and he ends up crying like a baby…again

We’ve gotta be real here. Trading Nolan is going to be a massive storyline this season (it hasn’t been already?) and it’s only going to continue. It’s something we hate thinking about but unless we witness a miracle, it’s probably going to happen. We need to face facts: we’re gonna have to kill a pig.

The scene where Peter knows he shouldn’t go spy on Aldous and Sarah’s room because he knows how much it’s going to hurt him but he just can’t help himself and ignores Brian’s warnings he’s yelling through the phone and he sees them and just stares in disbelief

Is this not any Rockies game in late innings EVER?

The scene where Peter gets an extra shooter of Malibu from the Breakfast Buffet server

When a fan from another team agrees that Rockies players are unfairly punished for playing at Coors Field and are actually great players. This is great when it happens and we love when it does. So what if they’re gonna try to fight us later on when we think they’re gonna be cool about things? It’s about the extra rum in the morning NOW.

When Peter sings about how much he hates himself and how he needs to go see a psychiatrist but he hates the psychiatrist but he should go see one anyway because “Peter, you suck!”

Life as a Rockies fan.

When Rachel congratulates Peter on his Dracula play and he says, “You know what? I didn’t realize it was a comedy. And then someone told me that, and it just like opened the whole thing up.”

There’s no video out there of this scene so if you want to see it, you’ll have to watch it.

We can choose to look at the Rockies season as a tragedy. Going into it the appearance is certainly that it’s very, very dark. But if we view it a little more light-heartedly through the eyes of others? It can be a comedy! That can make it enjoyable.

We know it’s not going to be the brightest of seasons given how the offseason went but if we approach it knowing we’re gonna laugh? Well hey, maybe that was the way it was meant to be.

After all, it’s just about baseball season. It’s the greatest season of all time, just like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” is the Greatest Romcom of All Time. We’ll enjoy it no matter what because we just can’t help it. We’re gonna get hurt and it’s gonna get real dark and ominous, but we’ll continue to watch it over and over and over and over.

Next. Coronavirus and the changing landscape of MLB journalism. dark

Does that mean sad tissues or happy tissues? No one knows and that’s the beauty of it.
