Video Description

In this episode, Thomas is out and about, and when he spots a cute guy, he's conflicted on whether or not he should approach. And, /if/ he were to approach... how?


  • This episode is told entirely in animatic form, which makes it the first episode to be done that way.
  • Throughout the last scene, Virgil's eyeshadow can be seen changing from black to a sparkly purple, reflecting his sense of butterflies in his stomach.
  • When Virgil says "We can live like Jack and Sally if you want" it's referencing the blink-182 song I Miss You
