IT'S CONNIE! 10/10 100/100 BEST EPISODE BEST CHARACTER NOT UP FOR DEB8
|"Steven, you're 14!?" "Yeah...?" "But I'm only 12¾! You're older than me? I-I don't believe it!"|
Hmm, Steven has one of those faces...
|"So he's not going to grow up?" "Well, it's hard to say. He's a gem, and gems don't really grow up. I mean, I've known the gems since I was 22 and they never change... they just are what they are."|
|"If you hit it, you git it."|
vocal paradox. That, or she just doesn't want to have to think about Kanye right now.
|"You should sneak me into a PG-13 movie sometime."|
SCREW IT, DIRECTOR'S CUT, THEY FUSE. I SAID IT, SO IT HAPPENS.
Speaking of making people mad, I'd better stop this digression and get back to the real episode.
|"When Connie grows up and becomes president, what is that gonna make me? First Boy?"|
|"That one's... Canis Helicopteris."|
|"I'm really glad that I'm going to get to grow up with you."|
This couple is moving so fast! Kids, you gotta slow down, you've got plenty of time before you're grown up! Also us Stevonnie shippers are probably on the verge of a fatal overdose right now so can you just dial it back a bit please?
I tell you what, if I were that baby I'd be fascinated to bits with that display. Or scared out of my tiny little mind. It's hard to tell with babies.
This is what I love about Connie. She's so smart and clever that she just... y'know, gets things. She figures stuff out real quick, and she's becoming quite an expert on Steven. She's realized that it was her earlier worrying about Steven not growing up that sapped his confidence and led him down this road. She wants to make sure he knows that he doesn't have to change himself for her, that she's happy with him just the way he was. Having someone tell you they like you just the way you are can sometimes be just what you need to hear to get your confidence in yourself back.

|"Don't worry, Steven. It doesn't matter to me what age it seems like you are. I wanna hang out with you no matter what."|
Oh for crying out loud, Amethyst. I thought we were done with the body horror this episode.
STEVEN YOU HAD ONE JOB AND THAT WAS TO NOT DIE ON YOUR BIRTHDAY. SEE IF I EVER BELIEVE YOU EVER AGAIN
Phew, false alarm! Steven, you sure do go to some lengths to get a Connie power-hug.
And we close out the episode with everyone marveling at Steven's face. If you can think of a better caption for this image, please put in the comments.
Connie confirmed for actual star of show. She deserves it. Here's hoping she sticks around all week!
