Ep 198 – How to Marry a Mormon: Part 2

Written by on July 26, 2015

In part 2 of this amazingly ridiculous story, amazingly ridiculous things happen. Seriously. Check it out. It will almost certainly leave you wanting Moore. πŸ˜‰

    I loved this one as much as the first, and I was sorry to see it come to an end. Sometimes I was just dyin’ hearing you all crack yourselves up and dissolve in laughter. Truly infantile. And delightful. The ongoing discussion about Glenn Then vs. Glenn Now and the repeated worries over stereotyping, derogatory language, etc. offered some serious, more reflective moments, and that was nice, too. But my favoritest thang of all in this and recent podcasts has been “John Hamer Says No,” with or without the associated sound effect. A great little touch. Especially funny when used to lower the boom on the unsuspecting, sweet daughter when she innocently uttered the phrase “same-sex attraction” in the abstinence education episode.

    All right guys this had my name all over it and had to listen. Great job for a Moore-mon screenplay. Could there be Moore puns? Could the father had reworded his testimony and preaching any Moore ways or times? I did enjoy this. I do believe even though I served my mission in England, listening to your missions and the Elder in them, I swear it’s as if you stole my journal. Every single good and asshole Elder you guys remember I had them in my mission and that was 30 yrs ago.

      My sister asked this; “Why are they calling you out?” So I had to explain that it was because of my own past prejudices that I didn’t feel comfortable with one of the stereotypes. If Robin Williams or Eric Stonestreet (Cam in Modern Family) can play flamboyant or lisping, emotional gays…. That’s alright, because they have loving children and partners who understand their foibles and piques. But when a stereotype is used for humor and that humor comes from fear, anger, ignorance or makes them no longer “people” with parents, siblings, spouses and children; but rather something to mock, the person becomes a cartoon that is dehumanized.

        We love you Thomas. We weren’t calling you out as much as you caused us all (except maybe John) to pause and self-reflect which I thought led to an interesting aside in the conversation. I shouldn’t have used your whole name and we were all defensive bc none of us want to be the cause of such a reaction to an oppressed minority. It’s human nature to react that way immediately but after reflection, I can see why you were offended. Thanks for making me see this from a different perspective.

    I thought this was every bit as enjoyable as part one. One highlight for me was when Scott (finally) inserted some cursing into the dialogue.

    This is going to sound like damning with faint praise, but this screen play is not half bad, especially considering it was a side passion project from 20 years ago. I would love to see a version of this screen play written from your perspective today, especially one that wasn’t a sardonic lambast but more of a dark comedy, a la “A very serious man” by the Coen Brothers, that treats the main characters with love. Anyway, just a thought.

    Yeah, i agree, this part 2 was as good if not better than the first pod. I really enjoyed it. Brought back a lot of memories of the mission, and i thought the banter was very entertaining.
    Still cant believe i listened to 4 hours of this….it took me three tries to get through 3p minutes of part 1….but then i was hooked.
    PS….glad i listened to the last ten minutes….the blooper reel. Funny stuff.
    Good job, and for the record, I’d love to see the screnplay.
    Good job fellers.
