January 1, 2007: Supertramp Season 1, Episode 2

In tonight's repeat of a first-season episode, we return to the arrival of Andy Richter's Stan, nicknamed Sad Dad by the Mean Mommies. Stan was a nice enough guy, but the air of desperation he put off made me cringe. He was really very sad and just a little bit too eager. But he was also sweet, making her a mixed tape of her favorite band and complimenting her hair. So he wasn't the hottest man that Christine could've picked for her first sexual partner in three years. But he was attentive and willing, and that was all she needed. I thought it was hilarious that Ali directed her to the Whole Foods to pick up guys. And I might add, some of those guys in the Whole Foods were really good-looking. Poor Christine, she couldn't exactly pick up the handsome ones. The first guy she scared off by talking too much, then backing into a grocer putting away vegetables. The second guy she scared off by not saying anything, grinning like a madwoman and doing her body shake, which was apparently her way of being sexy. Then she met Stan, and the next scene showed them in bed together, smiling giddily. But why, if Stan was only supposed to be a one night stand, would Christine give him her home number and her cell phone number? I found it funny that he left messages like "Hey, baby" and explained everything that he was doing (eating spaghetti) as he was doing it. He really had no skills with the ladies. And then Christine found out that he was Sad Dad - the depressed father who moped around the school trying to get any woman's attention after his wife left him for her personal trainer. The best moment was when Marly and Lindsay pulled Christine aside as Stan approached, claiming that Sad Dad was coming. When Christine went to see who Sad Dad was, Stan picked her up and hugged her. Cut to one minute later, and he was still hugging her. Marly and Lindsay were in the background with their mouths dropped wide open, and it was just pure comedy. My two favorite lines of the episode were: When Matthew confessed to meeting someone in the grocery store: "We had a moment by the goat milk. She's into me." And when Richard tried to give Christine a pep talk about her self-consciousness: "Sometimes I still scream out your name during sex." For a moment, Christine believed him. But then she realized that his new girlfriend has her name. But the best part of the whole episode was the very end when Christine tried to talk to Stan in his car. He started rolling up his window because he didn't want to see her anymore. She was too fast for him. Christine yelled out: "You did me! You know it!" as the Mean Mommies stood nearby, looking disgusted. Lindsay said her "stomach hurt," and they walked away like they were sick. show less
