TBT: Diners, Drive-Ins, and Disgraceful Behavior
Since the 2015 version of Days is currently most effective as a substitute for ZzzQuil, let’s throw it back to the fall of 2000 (I think, based on my depressingly encyclopedic knowledge of when certain key events occurred and the fact that I know it was spring of 2001 when I told my Politics Seminar professor that I had a doctor’s appointment because I “needed” to leave class early to watch the massacre at Greta’s coronation).
This clip, in which Sami discovers that Kate is working at the diner with Fay Walker — who, you will notice, is not wearing a CAMEO — is over-the-top from start to finish. For my money, few things will ever be as hilarious as the moment around 0:35 when Sami announces herself by shouting, “Yo, Kate! You go, girl! You sling that hash, honey!” before breaking out into a maniacal cackle.
If you had forgotten what a crass, rude pig Sami could be, look no further for a reminder. To be fair, she’s carrying on about a woman who recently had her sent to Death Row, but still. I also love how Roman and Austin just kind of stand around going, “Hey, Sami, cool it” like a pair of limp noodles.
