  1. Revenge of the Fallen. Because Shia Lebuef

  2. Finding Nemo. If youve read The Pixar Theory you know where im coming from. And yes Jon i trolled u last week. Gotcha *****

  3. I feel honored to be a part of Jon and Kayla’s couple therapy.

  4. The best revenge movie for me is Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (a sequel to the movie Home Alone)

    THE STREETS ARE NUMBERED!

  5. I have a couple things i have to say cause this was one heck of an episode.
    First of all, Kayla my girlfriend has that same popcorn dream and i find it super cute. Only reason i do share the popcorn even though i hate butter. Jon just share the popcorn. Trust me, its worth letting them live their dream.
    Second, Minions are the Illuminati.
    Third, I think Maria is the funny and sweet youtuber like Grace Helbig or Zoella.
    And finally, the best revenge movie is Memento. Bit some honkrable metions are the Kill Bill movies, The Crow, Man on Fire, Payback, amd Oldboy from 2003. Sorry this is so long.

  6. Dont you mean “but” and “honorable” Sergio? Yeah how does it feel that karma got you huh? HUH?!

  7. PODCAST MVP: I wanna give it to Kayla for that Good Dinosaur animation awesomeness, but I’m voting Jon instead because I love popcorn seasoning.

    ALSO: I’m back from vacation, sorry it was so long!

    • I vote Jon too for that triangles bit.

    • Jon for making me laugh the hardest this week. I lost it at “This podcast is brought to you by Brie Larson and her publicist who won’t call me back.”

  8. I wish you guys did the Now Conspiring Game Show every week…

  9. Maria, you cultural tastemaker, you!

  10. I feel like all Adam Sandler movies are revenge movies aimed at people who liked him in the 90s.

  11. Maria isn’t the cultural tastemaker. She’s the voice of reason. Oh and calling Adonis a nerd is pretty generous. He’s like the Closet King.

  12. Here’s my list:
    Inglorious Basterds
    I Saw the Devil
    Oldboy
    Django Unchained
    The Punisher
    Payback
    Revenge of the Nerds
    Kill Bill
    Gladiator
