[S2E7] I Love Cake
After Donna says "I love you", Eric responds strangely and is confused with how he should return his feelings. Jackie buys Kelso a jacket which makes him resemble Fonzie and Bob is kicked out of the house by Midge. Bob moves in with the Formans, much to Red and Kitty's dismay, forcing Red to come up with a plan to get him back into his own home.
[S2E7] I Love Cake
He needed to get his comeuppance sooner rather than later, and while he's primarily evaded any sort of repercussions, the entire school watching this heightened -- and more embarrassing -- iteration of him was the icing on the cake.
The first challenge is a mille crepe cake. This is a cake built with 25 crepes layers, with flavoured cream between each layer. They are very delicious, and very trendy right now. The bakers cannot use any tricks or dowels to make their cake stand up high.
Megan alternates orange crepes with vanilla ones, and decorates her mille crepe cake with sugar creamsicles, whipped cream and bubbles. It is a fun playful presentation for a serious French cake. The judges love it.
Andrei could probably make crepes in his sleep, and his coffee and maple cake has Bruno speaking his felicitations in French. After the challenge, Andrei says he is walking on air, but says it in his usual deadpan way so it seems sort of funny.
Sachin also makes a vol-au-vent, and his has butter chicken inside. Sachin makes a small sandwich with roasted tomatoes, and a cheese tart. His pate brisee is slightly underbaked but Bruno is in love with his butter chicken appie.
Mengling decides to go a whole different way and makes rice cups for one of her pastries. Taking cold rice and mushing it into a pastry shell does not seem like a good idea for French patisserie week. But you know what is a good idea? Dan and Mengling doing a comedy routine. Dan just loves to go over and ask Mengling questions while she is baking. Her nervous answers are usually so unintentionally deadpan that they are hilarious.
Her rice cups are so hard that Bruno is continuously chewing. But he loves her banh mi on a mini soft bun. The judges like the effort but tell Mengling that at this stage in the competition, everything needs to be exceptional. We know what they are saying; Mengling knows what they are saying too.
The final cook to be called up was Andrew and his banana split cake, which just crushed Kristen. The swirl on top was cool and the overall outside look was phenomenal, but it crumbled when serving. Minus points there.
One contestant not featured in almost the entire show: Line, who had been in the spotlight the past few weeks. We could only assume she was safe. Same with Chatty Jenny, whom we only saw during the cake challenge.
But until the end of the night when he kicked everyone out, Ray was forced to relinquish control, and even laughed (drunkenly) at the chaos around him. Terry and Frances confronted him about the gym, and Mickey escalated the situation by blurting out about the fact that the gym is just a front so Ray can launder his money. The ensuing shouting match also dredged up the past, just like Mickey did for Stan by telling his crass pedophile joke (which triggered Stan's own messed-up childhood trauma). Stan kissing Bunchy sent Bunchy on a spiral of "I'm not gay!" And then Mickey (always the instigator) gave Conor his car -- the one that Daryll loves and that Claudette has so many fond memories of -- a year before he can even start driving.
The final straw for Ray though was Bridget's suggestion that Abby is cheating on Ray. The complicated part of it are her own complications -- Abby had not, at that time, actually slept with Halloran (and it's not even for sure that she did so that night). She loves the attention he gives her, and that he comes running when she calls, but her wonderfully honest moment about only having slept with the same man for 20 years, so that she only knows what Ray likes, was a great way to illustrate her hesitation.
Divide the mixture into the 3 prepared cake tins. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Leave in the tins to completely cool before removing from the tins.
To assemble the cake, sandwich the sponge layer together with a generous layer of saffron and rose cream and sprinkle with pistachios. Decorate with pistachios and sugar-coated rose petals, as desired.
A Happy Refrain was written and directed by Seth MacFarlane who later said he wanted to tell "a classic Hollywood love story that ended with Singing in the Rain." Music was composed by Andrew Cottee.
Almost immediately upon airing, the episode was embraced by fans as one of the most stirring and beloved of the show. It currently holds a rating of 8.4 on IMDB, one of the best of The Orville until that point, and was watched live by 3.105 million American households.
Isaac brings a chocolate cake to Claire in her quarters at 3:14 a.m.; his idea of thoughtful and spontaneous. She is shocked and breaks up with him. Isaac finds Malloy, LaMarr, and Ensign Turco bowling in the simulator for help and LaMarr gets an idea.
Meeting with Grayson and Chief of Security Talla Keyali, Claire beams: "A machine who knows nothing of love, only logic, figured out a way to say I'm trying. Let me try." Isaac however wants to end the relationship because he collected enough data for his analysis. LaMarr suggests that Isaac makes himself unappealing so that she will want to end things.
Isaac scans himself using the ship's computer and learns that his sub-routines have adjusted to Claire's presence that now interferes with his programming when she is gone. Ed chuckles, realizing the artificial lifeform has fallen in love. Isaac wants to repair his relationship and Ed recommends he apologize creatively.
Creator Seth MacFarlane wanted to tell "a classic Hollywood love story that ended with Singing in the Rain." He found Isaac's struggle to "grasp Human culture" to be a "rich source of sci-fi writing," which opens the audience to questions of advancements in technology, sentience, romance and feelings, and rights.
MacFarlane finished the script by December 2017. "Mark, Mark, I've got a script for you!" MacFarlane excitedly told actor Mark Jackson (Isaac) at his Christmas party that month. "You're going to love it. We're going to meet Human Isaac."
A Happy Refrain quickly became one of the most beloved chapters of the season, holding a rating of 8.4 on IMDB, tied with If the Stars Should Appear and Majority Rule for the third-highest until that point (although later episodes such as Identity, Pt. 2 would smash this record). Ratings for A Happy Refrain were strong. Roughly 3.105 million American households watched the episode live, of which 0.68 million were ages 18-49, the third best performance of the season until that point.
I believe that, maybe because I have a bunch of them around me, some people are happy when they get ahead in the game and thrive in their jobs. Their jobs give them a purpose in life. I think I am more of a person that sees the job as a job, I love doing it, but, like Orrin Bach would say, my job is not my purpose ?
Your attention to detail never ceases to amaze me! Yes, we heard Chuck said almost the same thing about Axe to Wendy before we heard Axe saying it about Chuck to Bryan. This show is fantastic with words and I am in love with the symmetries!
I love the vulnerable and restless Axe of this season more than the arrogant and overconfident Axe of last season mostly because this Axe makes Damian go explore parts of his incredible range as an actor that he has not gone before with his character, or maybe with any character.
Whether or not you love Elvis, or have ever made plans for a thousand-mile road trip alone with a parent, you'll love this novel. I found this book to be a speedy read that gave me lots to think about after it was finished.
I started Wherever I Look back in 2011 and have aimed to be that friend who loves watching various forms of media and talking about it. So, from bias, strong opinions, and a perspective you may not have thought about, you'll find that in our reviews.

Donna: And then he punched me in the arm and said, "Man!"Jackie: Oh, my God. What a horrible disaster. Well, go on!Donna: I guess I, like, totally screwed things up. 'Cause ever since I said, "I love you," he's been acting so weird.Jackie: Okay, wait a second. I'm a little confused. Why did you say, "I love you"?Donna: Because I love him?Jackie: Oh! Donna, that's got nothing to do with it! You are way too young to be saying, "I love you."Donna: Shut up, Jackie. You say it to Kelso all the time, and you're, like, younger than me.Jackie: Not in love years. All right, look, Eric doesn't know how to handle that kind of thing. You probably just scared him off. All you can do right now is play it cool for a while, turn down the emotional heat, and, Donna, God willing, he'll forget you threw yourself at him.Donna: I know it sounds impossible, but what you just said actually makes sense.Jackie: Look, the sooner you realize I'm a genius, the better off we'll both be. 041b061a72
