    Michael and Lindsay have always been my "goals af" RT couple, but there's something magnetic about watching James and Elyse together.  They're so painfully sweet, and it's just endlessly clear how much they love each other. Elyse in particular is one of my favorite ladies of Rooster Teeth, and it's really great to see how happy she and James make each other.

    James and Elyse simultaneously make me believe in love and also despair at ever finding love

    Honestly, James and Elyse are my goal couple! Especially after James said Elyse was the funniest person he ever met, it made my heart melt!! Love these two beautiful people so much, and wish them all the happiness in the world!!

    this episode made me very happy, they're just so fantastic as a couple

    *cough cough* still want to see Gus & Esther make an apperance though *cough*

    also it might be cool to see another Michael & Lindsay episode after Iris gets a bit older, like a year later how has being parents changed them if at all

    I never really understood how much negative connotation "codependency" is given. It's something to be discussed for sure, and some people don't want it and that's fine. The biggest pitfall of this kind of relationship is when one or both people aren't ready to fully commit to it, but James said it best:
    "You're my best friend."
    Sometimes things really can be so genuine.

      Is there a different definition to codependency? I only know the one where its like an unhealthy relationship where all decisions revolve around the other person and they have no life outside that person?

    I hope to meet someone who compliments me the way Jame and Elise compliment each other. Two people who are best friends first and just happen to be attractive together.

      @VinnyDaGun Yes, we've covered this already, I've already stated, I found it funny, I don't give two shits about anyone else.

      She is awesome. And I really like the fact that she stressed and wanted to be her own character and not a James Attachment. It is also pretty damn great she chose to be the new "self-pity Spoole" type of character to round out the cast.

    Idk why I tear up when I watch these two. They are actual relationship goals. I hope someday I find someone I click with as much as they do.

    That saxophone needs some better micing. For the longest time I thought it was the keyboard keys and was wondering "how is that even possible?!" but that clicking sound is actually the valves on the sax! It's not the sound that you'd expect or wanted to hear during a smooth sax melody ;D

    Other than that, awesome episode! It was really great to see the Willemses out of their "characters" and it's also great to see Geoff finding his "inner happiness" or whatever and keeping sober! :)

    Griffon is always a pleasure :)

    I am three quarters of the way through this episode and as someone who has never been in a serious relationship at 21 years old other than a long distance, where we met online this has been fascinating and super helpful. it is incredible interesting to see how proper couples interact in a real life personal way. so... thank you ^_^
