Casey Wilson’s amazing rant in the premiere of NBC’s new comedy “Marry Me” was comedy perfection. It takes a strong actress to captivate viewers for almost a full three minutes with her back to the camera.
At first glance it may not be apparent that opening scene is extremely reminiscent of another one in Wilson’s repertoire. Fans will definitely remember the scene in “Happy Endings” (R.I.P.) where Penny can only speak Italian when she’s drunk. So what’s a gal to do? Of course Penny heads to the kitchen to guzzle vodka so she can communicate with the guy she’s sleeping with like any savvy woman would do.
Both scenes are some of Wilson’s best work to date, but that’s not the only thing they have in common. They both take place in….wait for it……kitchens! Clearly there’s something about the most functional room in a home that really skyrockets Wilson’s comedic genesis.
Can’t help but notice there might be a pattern here. Check out both clips and let us know you thoughts in the comments below.
