I have to say, this was an unexpectedly wholesome short.

Quonab, thank you for bringing this to my attention. Moving, funny, piercing.

I noticed Mike Judge in the thank-yous in the credits - interesting!

Folks who liked Ferrell's serious turn in this might also enjoy the film Stranger Than Fiction where he gets to do comedy and pathos.

Yeah, this is about the best we can make of 2021.

Finally! A realistic therapists office! In my umpteen years of therapy, I have never sat in a tv/movie therapist’s office, all spacious, wood-paneled, and tastefully accessorized.

Well it certainly wasn’t the outcome anyone expected, and it wasn’t exactly what they were hoping for. But in a way, if you look at it just right, they all pinned the Hoagie that day.

That was wonderful and hilarious. It wasn't until I looked up son!David's actor on IMDB that I learned he played both the comic relief friend in Netflix's Fear Street and the least awful tourist in HBO's White Lotus. I watched both shows within a month and never realized it was the same guy! Great acting, Fred Hechinger!
