Mom - Spaghetti Sauce and a Dumpster Fire - Review: "Like a Drunk Mother Goose"


Everyone struggles, even the strongest ones. This week on Mom, we learn that Marjorie is no exception.

While shopping at the store, Christy comes upon Marjorie losing it at the deli guy for skipping her in line. She wants her "thinly sliced, low-sodium ham or [she's] coming over that counter!"

Christy tells the rest of the girls about it at a meeting, and they have a hard time believing Marjorie could have such a meltdown. Later at the bistro, Christy tells Marjorie she saw what happened and asks if she's okay. Marjorie insists that she's fine and makes her drop it.

Then Bonnie drops a bomb on Christy - Patrick's already dating. Back at the apartment, Adam accidentally reveals that not only is Patrick dating again, he's going with his new girlfriend to Costa Rica for a week of surfing, which was something they had planned to do together. Christy's freaked out, and although she would usually call Marjorie at a time like this, she decides not to after seeing her meltdown earlier.

The next Saturday, the girls all get together for a foot massage Wendy found a Groupon for. (Would you believe Jill has no idea what a Groupon is? Because she doesn't.) When Christy mentions that she's going on a date with the guy from the Footlocker who gave her his number, Marjorie advises her against it because she'd just be using him to get back at Patrick. When Christy says she's going anyway, Marjorie gets angry and walks out, saying that Christy never takes her advice. Christy follows her and says that if she can't talk to Marjorie without her getting mad then she's getting a new sponsor. Marjorie says go ahead.

With Christy and Marjorie now cold-shouldering each other, Bonnie, Wendy, and Jill help Christy pick out a new sponsor. Christy settles on Nora, after seeing her scold Bonnie for leaving her spilled coffee on the floor. Bonnie ACTUALLY listens to her, so Christy knows she must be something special! At the bistro, Nora agrees to be Christy's new sponsor, as long as Bonnie, Wendy, and Jill stop spying on them through the window!

With Christy and Marjorie not talking and Marjorie not coming to as many meetings, Bonnie goes over to check on her. "I thought about bringing you something to eat, but I'm already way out of my comfort zone just checking on you," says Bonnie. After some pestering, Bonnie finally gets some info out of Marjorie. She still hasn't found a new sponsor a year after her old one fell off the wagon. That, along with caring for her husband after his stroke and sponsoring "half of Napa" is putting her under a lot of pressure.

At a meeting later, Marjorie gets up to share and reveals to the group how much she's been struggling. She also explains her deli-counter meltdown. As she's gotten older, she's realized people have stopped taking her seriously or just ignore her altogether. Desperate to be more than just a silly old woman, she lost it when the deli guy ignored her.

At the bistro, Christy and Marjorie make up (with Bonnie, Jill, and Wendy spying on them from outside the window!). Christy's decided to stick with Nora as her sponsor and Marjorie's finally found another sponsor in knit-a-holic Katherine. She's even excited about Katherine knitting her a butterfly sweater!

Random Thoughts:
-Gus is back! I love Gus!

-I loved Marjorie's cat growling at Bonnie!

-Best quote goes to Marjorie about her younger years. "I robbed a bank. I took a bath with Jimmy Hendrix. I've lived!"

What do you think of Christy changing sponsors? Were you surprised to hear that Patrick's dating again? Let me know below!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
