Rin says: ASIAN FANNY FUN. It freaks me out. A lot.
Sophy says: idk I’m sort of jealous. It’s like you’re part of the show with your golf ball-eggs and your racially selective porn references.
My heart totally leapt into my throat when I saw this scene. Oh gen 1. *rocks back and forth* Although the large ‘Sid Jenkins’ might have been a bit of overkill. We saw the beanie. We saw the racially selective porn. We got it.
Rin says: EVERYBODY IS WHITE.
Rin says: COOK. I love you during this part. His face as he flicks the cigarette into the locker is hilarious.. such a bamf.
Sophy says: LOL JACK. I could just look at caps of his and Lily’s faces all day. They would have made a killing in the silent era.
Rin says: Coooookehhhh. And rofl, this teacher. I swear to god.
Sophy says: HAHAHA HIS LITTLE FACE <3
Rin says: HAHAHAH. The cap of her cowering reminds me so much of Sophy. I can’t even explain it, but it’s just something that I can easily imagine her doing. OH Doug. You’re the glue. You’re the glue
Sophy says: STFU Rin
even though it’s true.
Rin says: Jesus. I’m still laughing from yesterday when you showed me this. I don’t think any other macro can achieve such laughter in just TWO frames. Seriously.
Sophy says: Honestly, to those who say that Effy’s breakdown in 4.05 came out of nowhere… I guess you just weren’t watching closely enough, were you?
Rin says: I’m frightened. She reminds me of a blow-up doll. …Uh, which I have no experience with and have only seen on tv. Hi mum.
Sophy says: I’ve seen her in something. I couldn’t remember what at the time, but then I remembered, but now I’ve forgotten again. Thanks, Alcohol.
Rin says: At least the pen is on her hand this time, and not in her mouth.
Sophy says: OH PANDA. YOU WERE AMAZING, WHY DID THEY HIDE YOU AWAY FOR SO MUCH OF SEASON FOUR, WHY WHY WHY?
Rin says: Poor Panda. STOP JUDGING HER BLOW UP DOLL LADY.
Sophy says: Also, why did they do this to you idek. Harvard. I just… idek.
Sophy says: I may never recover from this. Never. NEVER.
Rin says: Fucking singing. He ruined it. Series 4 was special. And then it was JJ’s episode and everything went to shit.
Sophy says: DON’T BLAME YOURSELF KIERAN YOU DID EVERYTHING YOU COULD
Rin says: Katie is so proud. *pats her head* AND EMILY. Could you be more obvious? Why not just say, ‘I’ve never had a boyfriend…BECAUSE I LIKE GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!‘ and she would be shimmy-ing whilst saying that.
Sophy says: I have the most perfect visual in my head right now, Rin. I wish there was a record button I could press so the memory would last forever.
Rin says: Naomio. Those pants…what are they? And I’ve even become somewhat immune to your sense of fashion because the floral jacket thing you have on doesn’t even perturb me any more. But I can’t forgive those pants, I’m sorry.
I adore, “I hate injustice. People tell lies about me.” Naomi, YOU’RE AWESOME. I can see me falling in love with you.
Sophy says: Acitivist-Naomi makes me lol – and not in a good way, in a ‘Mom, Dad, Brandon, I put on a black skivvy, snuck into the lab and let all the animals go free’ way. So I’m kind of glad she was a flash in the pan. Having said that I do like this particular line and the way it was delivered – it wasn’t about social justice, it was personal. And I mean personal. Did I mention personal?
Rin says: NUUUUUU. NOT YOU TOO. Omg. :(((:((( At least if it’s asians I have a better chance? Right? …..I’m sick.
Sophy says: Rin… I just… I… yeah… *shuffles away slowly*
Rin says: Ha! Emily looks equal amounts worried and turned on. I really wish Naomi had said ‘Emily Fitch’ one time during the show though. Like shouting it. OMG NOT IN THAT WAY YOU PERVE.
Sophy says: LOLOL, Emily’s all like ‘Okay, well… I’m usually more into oils and stuff, but I’ll try anything once for you, Naomi Campbell.’
Sophy says: Rophy stole a page out of Heather Hogan’s season three Skins journal for this. Rophy won’t pretend to be sorry.
Rin says: Nope. No sorry-ness here.
Rin says: omg. I see the glue and I just have.. flashbacks.
Rin says: PANDA AT THE DOOR. HER FACE. HERRRRRREEESSS PANDA!
Sophy says: Panda and Cook. It begins. (STFU Thomas you weren’t even on the show yet.)
Rin says: Thank God you never had that hairstyle again. Unfortunately they passed off ridiculous hairstyles to my Lovely Loveless.
Sophy says: Well… these pigtails were kind of a massive improvement on her pigtails in gen 1, so… progress. Still, whenever I see Panda in this episode I just think of
Rin says: PENNY!! Holy crap, I didn’t know you knew Inspector Gadget? I would have thought you were too old for that.. were you like 26 and watching this show?? It even says 80s cartoons on the screencap.
Sophy says: SHUTUP SHUTUP SHUTUP!! :((( I DIDN’T GET THE COOK/MICHAEL SCOFIELD JOKE AND NOW SHE’S PUNISHING ME FOR IT
Rin says: Guh, the smoke.
Sophy says: Why do you never gaze dreamily and say ‘Guh, the smoke’ when I light up a cigarette? Sigh.
Rin says: I really like that red sweater thing Coo… oh it’s gone.
Sophy says: AND SO THE GRAND TRADITION OF SEMI-NAKED COOK BEGINS. Ladies (and gents if you are so inclined and not ladies if you are not so inclined and etc etc), rejoice!
Rin says: Of course. Sex in school. On the first day. Classic Effy.
Sophy says: lol I find it amusing that many people I’ve talked to have this idea of Effy being really promiscuous, but really, we actually we only ever see her sleep with two people over four seasons. Still… sex in school, on the first day… with the guy with the Jordan tattoo on his cock… someone needs therapy. THESE ARE WARNING SIGNS, ANTHEA, YOU SHOULD BE WATCHING, MMKAY?
Rin says: Poor girl can’t get a break.
Sophy says: AAAAAAAAAHAHHA. It’s all in the way she sophias. Like a pro.
Rin says: Coming on Skins. GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! Emily Fitch is excited. And omfg, why did they not use that shot of Effy in ep5?? It’s gorgeous.
Sophy says: I know right? And I’m excited with you Emily Fitch! *shimmies*
Rin says: Thomas!!!!!11
Sophy says: ILU SEASON THREE THOMAS. I can’t wait to see you again. *single tear/creamy cheek*
Rin says: WHY DID THEY NOT USE THIS CLOSE-UP?! FFFFF. They take out the best stuff omg. Lily’s eyes need to audition for LOST too. I really wonder what scene they were shot for..
Sophy says: Seriously, I think those two (sets of eyes) could hold their own with Evi and Emilie (‘s sets of eyes.)
Rin says: !! Who is this. I want more. NOT YOU JJ.
Sophy says: SOUP FOR ALL!! NONE FOR YOU JJ.
Rin says: The tribe has spoken ffs. Get off the island.
Sophy says: THANKS, JOEY JEREMIAH. HAVE SOME SOUP.
Rin says: Freddie’s hair looks like it could go on for days and days out of the cap. And Nookie! — misleading Skins is misleading. I do wonder if I had been watching this when it was airing, if I would have gone down that road. VERY SLIM CHANCE THOUGH, so stop sending your death threats lol.
Sophy says: lol um Rin… you would never, ever, ever, ever have gone down this route, with Naomily on the table. Now I’ve told you?
Rin says: Mrs Panda’s dancing kills me. And then I think of how the girls say in the BTS that noone told her to take off her dress. I love a good improviser. And the only reason I can come up with as to why this beautiful bike shot wasn’t used, is because Kat fell off her bike. Srsly, how could they give her a moped after seeing her on a bike??
Sophy says: SO CUTE I DIE. And yay, Mrs Panda. I can’t wait for these hijinks!
Rin says: …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Sophy says: ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… (at Kaya’s eyes and eyeliner of course.)
Rin says: The way Effy jumps into the water is never not going to be funny.
Sophy says: HAHAHA SHE JUMPS IN THE WAY I WOULD JUMP IN. YOU KNOW IT.
Rin says: HAha like, the only group scene.
Sophy says: Gen needed moar of this!
Rin says: EFFY STOP TRYING TO GET IN ON THE ACTION. YOU’RE NEVER GOING TO BE THE GAYEST AND THAT IS THAT. ok? Christ. Girl needs some help.
Sophy says: LOL, you have to admire her tenacity in the face of ridiculous odds.
Rin says: It happened. I honestly feel like karookie got a happy ending because of this.
Sophy says: It’s going to happen. *writes 38 letters to Jack Thorne*
Well that’s it from Rophy. But seriously kids, in case you weren’t listening at the start of the rophycap, you need to go and read Heather Hogan’s recap of the very same episode released at the very same time omg! It’s the perfect soothing intellectual balm after this madness, we assure you.
