In this episode, we talk about the global phenomenon that is Squid Game. Trey smokes a cigarette while sitting on a toilet that is overflowing with sewage. It is a moment of total peace. Molly sets up her four-meter Younghee doll and asks the cast if they want to play Red Light Green Light. Matthew licks a sugar cookie into the shape of a dodecahedron, just before the clock runs out. And Dean bites off Trey’s ear in a boxing match and then explains that he did it to feed his kids.

“Damn, it was brutal.”
6:40: A Child’s Game?
“We don’t care that you’re selling organs. That’s fine. Getting information about the next game? That deserves your death.”
17:06: The Ending
“The world just chews people up and spits them out.”
20:08: What Does the Show Say about Us?
