Episode notes

A still from 'The King of Staten Island' (2020). Pete Davidson walks down the middle of a street, shirtless, with his arms stretched out in the air.

The King of Staten Island

The gang is back in the “booth” to discuss the new Judd Apatow film The King of Staten Island. Ify reveals his plan to grow a beard. Drea’s trying out some new beverages.
