On this episode we talk about John Hughes’ coming of age classic Pretty in Pink and how to handle stereotypes and unrequited love. We talk about class and style and manipulative a**holes. Isaac fantasizes about riding his bike in the rain and sitting on newspaper stands. Shawn reveals that he dated the weirdest cheerleader in high school. And they both realize that they didn’t really want to be Duckie Dale at all. They wanted to be smart and unique and brave and kind. They wanted to be complicated. They wanted to be Andie Walsh.
