Nostalgic Foods of Yore feat. Mara Wilson
March 12, 2014
(Lindsay, Nella and Mara are sat around a table full of candy and other foodstuffs)
Lindsay: Hello, friends. It is good for you to be here, in front of this banquet of.....high-fructose corn syrup and OH MY GOD!
(Nella drips nasty looking sauce on equally nasty looking ravioli to much laughter)
Lindsay: (between giggles) And Italian....
Nella: Italian delights.
Mara: Italian cuisine!
Lindsay: Yeah. We've covered so many things on our little dog and pony show. Baby dolls....
Nella: Nostalgic dances.
Lindsay: Commercials. So, we thought, hey. I think it's time to do food, and beg the question, "is this shit as good as you remember it?"
Mara: I just wanna say, probably not, but I guess we will see today.
Nella: But I am here under contract to put things in my mouth that I.... (sniggering from Lindsay) ....have not wanted to put in my mouth in a long time.
Lindsay: So, you're here under contract; Mara, why are you here?
Mara: Oh, I'm evil.
Lindsay: Oh, OK.
Lindsay: Evil likes corn syrup.
Mara: I mean, so- uh- so, yeah. Yeah.
Lindsay: (sniggers) Corn subsidies. Mmmmm, twizzlers....
Mara: Also, the stuff in the Fruit Gushers kinda looks like blood and I like that.
Lindsay: Does it?
Mara: Looks like stage blood, anyway. Close enough.
Lindsay: I have no idea what flavor this is....
Nella: Well, shall we just start with the Gushers then?
Mara: Why don't we start with the Gushers?
Commercial Announcer: Gushers! With a taste that's gonna drive you FRUITY!
Mara: Was that the one where the kids' heads...?
Nella: Heads would explode.
Lindsay: OH MY GOD!
Commercial Announcer: It's berry berry different!
Lindsay: If that doesn't make you wanna buy something...
Mara: They were actually directed by David Kronenberg, so....
