Rebecca Channels Her Inner Shirley Temple in This Crazy Ex Girlfriend Exclusive

This week on Crazy Ex Girlfriend, Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom) continues her path to healing since being left by Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III) at the altar by developing a healthy positive, platonic male friendship...with her friend’s elderly dad.

In this clip, which was shared exclusively with Jezebel (not to brag!), watch as Rebecca—having joined her best friend Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) on a trip home to Buffalo—hits it off in song with Donna’s dad, played by comedian Eddie Pepitone. It’s barely creepy at all—if you ignore the Shirley Temple curls, baby doll dress, and the fact that Paula’s dad also happens to be a total mess/not that great of a role model. Aren’t other people’s dads the best?

Crazy Ex Girlfriend airs Fridays at 8/7c on The CW.

Well, a slightly better outcome than the LAST time she was hanging out with a friend’s dad. . .

I am so sad this show’s going on winter break after this week. This, and The Good Place, are about the only two shows that keep me sane week to week. (And Jane the Virgin, but this whole recent plot with Adam is pttbtt)
