• Episode Followup: Last One Out Of Beach City

    Oh boy oh boy, Hilary and Lauren! Their episodes are always super great! I mean, all the crewniverse write great episodes, but some of them are just winners every time, y'know? Maybe you don't know. Maybe Emerald shouldn't be making the followup past 2am.

    Oh, when she said a "rock show" I was thinking more of the kind with actual rocks. Although considering Amethyst had a climbing rock and a sitting rock, I bet she'd enjoy that as well!

    "At a house, with a bunch of people hanging out and doing stuff!"
    A puzzle isn't good enough "stuff" for you, Amethyst?

    I guess having corners makes his puzzle a lot less exciting. Hey, when you've been around for 6,000 years, you have to find more fascinating ways to waste your time!

    Woah geez, don't mess with Barb! Wait, can she legally hold Greg's mail? And does she deliver it to his van or the gem temple?

    "We could go to the show with you."
    Whaaatttttt is this? Pearl wanting to hang out with Amethyst??? Of her own choosing???


    Dang Pearl, don't know your own strength!

    "You two just never saw me in action! Breaking every rule, taking on the authorities, so I could indulge in the joys of life on Earth!"

    Hmm, I feel like I've seen this symbol somewhere before...


    Wow Pearl, what a misuse of grammar! Is use of the non-existent word "gooder" part of tonight's festivities?

    "I think I'll try drinking tonight."
    Wait Pearl I don't think this is THAT kind of party!

    Oh wait, just apple juice.

    "There's a lot you don't know about me, Steven."
    Like the fact that I've never opened a soda can before.

    Pearl, humans only live about 70 years... They can totally be nostalgic for the suburbs!

    Look at Pearl! Drinking a can of juice with her pinky up. What is this, the 11th century?

    *When ur gay and u see a hot chick.*

    When a hot girl walks in that looks like your dead gf.

    Daaannngggggg she is ffffiiiiinnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    The answer is Pearl. And me. And all the lesbians watching this show.

    I don't even think Pearl knows if Pearl is okay, Steven.

    I dunno Pearl, maybe she dyed her hair for the same reason she got body piercings - she felt like doing what she wanted!
    "Well, you know Rose. She always did what she wanted."
    Ah geez, here we go again!

    Yes, practice round. Practice talking to humans normally by starting with a hot girl who has so far left you speechless. What a perfect plan!

    Real smooth and natural, Pearl.

    Yep, just acting casual.

    Proper communication with humans: Achievement Failed.


    Super smooth.

    Super duper smooth.

    "Wooow, woah woah woah, wow!"
    Yep, Pearl can certainly 'human' very well.

    Aww, Amethyst jamming is so cute!

    "She kinda looked like Mom. You noticed, I noticed, we all noticed."
    Yep, human Rose Quartz, right there!

    "That's why you were acting like such a goon!"
    Pearl likes a human! Ooooooo!

    I don't think Pearl has ever been teased for having a crush before. Oooooooooo!

    Oh snap she's back!

    Geez Pearly girly, what's got you so nervous? It's just a human.

    Who looks kind of like Rose Quartz, the love of your life.

    It's no big deal, really.

    Just kidding, it's a massively big deal!

    Pfff I love how Amethyst just pops up next to her!

    Daaannngggggg she is ffffiiiiinnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Ooo Amethyst got those star eyes for Pearl! That's like this show's version of heart eyes!

    Pearl is breaking the law! (Breaking the law, dun dun!)

    "New Pearl. No plan."

    So when the aliens do invade Earth, what do they have to do to get citizenship? Are there going to be intergalactic licenses in the future?

    When the good mom suddenly turns into the bad ass mom.

    Pretty much.

    Remember this?

    Character development
    Oh how things change.

    This is a really cool angle! I'm very impressed by the board artists this episode!

    No longer? Well, I guess we finally know what happened.

    Dang yo, that was a sweet move to get away from the cops!

    Suddenly Pearl.

    "I can't believe I ruined our night of going to a concert at someone house by getting us involved in a police chase because of a hot girl I saw. Ugh I'm the worst!"

    Where was Pearl hiding that bow while she was wearing those jeans?

    Pants are very difficult for someone who has always worn shorts and skirts. And who is made of light. And who can phase outfits onto themselves.

    "I was going to drink a juice!"
    Yeah, so hardcore Pearl. Wow. Drinking JUICE. That's how people have a good time!

    "And you'd say, 'Wow, Pearl is really cool!'"
    Because, you know, turning up the radio so you can't hear the police sirens because you ran a red light chasing after a mystery woman in the middle of the night is so tame.

    "I've lost my edge."
    Pearl, you don't have to stab someone for it to be a good night. You're not in a war zone anymore.

    "You're so hardcore!"
    Aww, Amethyst is admiring Pearl for once!

    "That's the most scared I've been since you almost let me die!"
    I'm assuming 'Rose's Scabbard', but what incident do you think he meant?

    "I've been a criminal for 6,000 years."
    So how many planets will Pearl eventually break the laws of?


    Oh snap, hotty mchotterson DID show up to the same show!

    It's fate, Pearl! You gotta go for it!

    I like how she asked Amethyst to watch Steven for her even though she was only going a few feet away and Steven has magical gem powers and can pretty much take care of himself at this point.

    "You can start smaller! Talk to a nerd!"
    Yeah, talk about nerd stuff with a nerd girl! There's no way you can compete with such a hardcore woman. Not even after Amethyst said you were hardcore.

    Except it's 6,000 instead of 6.

    Hey, even cool people can do handshakes.

    "I saved your planet, and your species, and you're welcome."
    Nice opening line. Smoothville once again, Pearl.

    Wonder if this chick knows about gem history or if she just thinks this girl is like, wacky and likes making up stories?


    Oh man, did Pearl blow it?!

    "I told her, 'My appearance is just a conscious manifestation of light.' and she said, 'I know how that is.' although, I highly doubt it."
    Psh, Pearl, how much do you know about humans? Ever heard of a hippie?


    Yoooooo Pearl is a playa like dang!

    "You just gave her some Shakesperian spiel about light, then got her number like it was nothing?!"
    I guess Pearl is really smooth after all.

    "Pearl, you're a total rockstar!"

    This episode was fantastic!

    I loved every bit of it!

    And the cheesy 80's movie ending?

    Just sealed the deal. 20/10, would watch again. After the several times I had to watch it to make this followup.
