So, in the premiere (don't worry, there are no spoilers before the cut), there was a reference to a Jennings Crawford. I immediately recognized it as a name Rob had used in both Slave Day and Cupid. So I asked him what the deal was, and he told me Jennings Crawford was a good friend of his with a cool name, and he couldn't believe I caught all those references.
Then, in Rob's commentary for the pilot, he was talking about a song playing by the Wannabes: "The lead singer, uh, of the Wannabes is named, uh, Jennings Crawford, which the close observers of my work may notice is a name that I use a lot; I just like the sound of the name."
Of course, I took "the close observers of my work" as a shout-out to me, because there was obviously no one else in the entire world who had caught his use of the name. I told him I was doing so. His response?
OMG ROB GAVE ME A SHOUT-OUT.
It totally made my day. And just so this isn't All About Me: I also sent him some comments about the commentary from the MM (anonymously, mind you). Like this one:
Ok. So I was wrong about Shelly Pomroy. And I really love RT. Seriously. As in I envy his wife.
I'll have to pass along the "envy his wife" comments to Katie. Make sure she appreciates me.
Now, let's talk about the episode, baby.
