This whole subplot was weird for me. A previous commenter on an earlier post suggested that this subplot was Pratchett trying to add in elements of 3rd wave feminism, but the whole thing still feels outdated. If I were in that girl's night out, when Tawnee/Betty said she only went out with Nobby because he's the only person to ask her out, I would have asked her why she didn't ask someone out (maybe her conservative mores would make her consider that "floozing," though I don't) and what she likes in a partner. Why does she need to wait around for the right person to ask her out?

Specifically, the Pixar branch of Disney needs to do it.

I know what you mean. Several times I'll start a Discworld book along with Mark and then just read the rest in a day or two. I also don't pace myself with the videos; I just watch them all when they're out on Sundays.

This seemed to me similar to when an avatar goes into the spirit world and consults past avatars for guidance.

It kinda reminds me of Alias (the double agenty parts)

You may be thinking of when Smee shaves Captain Hook in Peter Pan. That's the only Disney shaving scene I'm familiar with (although there could be others).

I was a bit confused by his reaction at the end of this section. I thought maybe he just didn't see the significance of the curtsy or the "four" since he says "three now." From the video for the next section, it seems he also missed the significance of Shufti's plumpness (though I also missed that on my reads).

Thanks. I didn't know I had to get rid of the 's' from 'https'. I had tried using the full link address, but it wouldn't accept it. I will keep this in mind for next time.

It seems the video didn't accompany this post, so here is a link: https://youtu.be/psXWEjA86V8
Sorry I couldn't get Mark's video to embed.

Not anything about the actual episode, but I wanted to add how much I loved two of the songs in this episode, "Never Grow Old" by The Cranberries and "Here Comes the Flood" by Peter Gabriel.
