Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

When did everyone start saying "janky" and what does it mean exactly? Also does the friend zone exist? And guess which member of the Thursday gang is secretly a spelling bee star? Plus Topic Sombrero, a conversation that may or may not have happened and so much more including a round of Just Me Or Everyone. I am on vacation right now and writing this in a hotel room and I fear this show description doesn't accurately reflect how fun this episode really was.

Ben Gleib returns to tell us about his star-studded Telethon for America and his longtime infatuation with Natalie Portman. At one point during the telethon he nearly got an answer to a question which has been plaguing him about whether Natalie remembered an interaction he had with her years prior but then Chelsea Handler made a joke and the moment was lost forever. Also, Alison is worried her belly button is going to explode which leads to some hard truths about lies we've been fed about innies and outies. Plus Just Me Or Everyone, a Caitlyn Jenner spotting at a fast food restaurant, Idylwild's dog mayor, the smell of Alison and Daniel's old apartment and so much more.
