Last week’s episode explored two realities — one true, the other alternate — where Abbi and Ilana still became friends. This week, we’re back to reality.

Abbi accidentally ships a package to her old workplace, Soulstice, and somehow ends up training Shania Twain (for real this time) with not-so-former-lover Trey. Ilana goes through her own work journey by being hired at a high-end, cut-throat sushi restaurant in Manhattan, run by none other than RuPaul.

Here were our reactions.

RuPaul

When they were volunteering at a clinic:

Danielle: Oh my god, they’re blowing weed on the protesters! They really need that.

Lindsay: Christians have so much pent-up anger about PG-13 sex scenes. This will be really good for them.

On Shania Twain:

Danielle: That’s Shania Twain? She’s blonde!

Lindsay: You know if you don’t like your hair color you can make it different.

Danielle: BUT HER IDENTITY IS A BRUNETTE.

*Two minutes later*

Danielle: That’s Shania Twain, right? It’s not an actress portraying Shania Twain, right?

*Shania sings “Man, I feel like a smoothie.”*

Danielle: *snaps fingers* That’s the one.

On RuPaul’s restaurant :

Lindsay: SANDRA BERNHARD’S IN HERE TOO? This episode’s star power is unreal.

Danielle: Is this RuPaul’s restaurant or is it cultural commentary? Is it like this because of RuPaul or is it like, a metaphor? You know the restaurant Dick’s? People go there to get yelled at. Is it like that?

On Shania Twain (again):

Danielle: Why would you make up that very specific lie about training Shania Twain though?

Lindsay: Oh my god, Shania’s trying to get them off during her training session.

Danielle: SHE’S CANADIAN?

Lindsay: No, the actress playing her is.

Danielle: Her skin is so clear!

Lindsay: Why did Abbi leave while Shania was singing? THAT WAS A FREE SHANIA TWAIN CONCERT.

Abbi’s big sex scene:

Danielle: THEY’RE GONNA BAAAAANG.

Lindsay: There it is! Everything you wished for!

Danielle: OH MY GOD? IS THAT WHAT YOU DO WHEN YOU HAVE A BONER? WHAT IS HE DOING? IS THIS A SECRET AMONG MEN?

Lindsay: Wait. Did he have a magnifying glass? Oooooh. It’s a mini fan! Why can’t he just go in the shower instead of using circulated air?

Danielle: Is there something I missed out on in sex ed?

Lindsay: Yeah, I definitely never learned about boner maintenance.

On Shania Twain (we know):

Lindsay: What if "Shania Twain broke my dick" was your party story?

Danielle: One time at a party, my friend told a cute girl his grandpa invented the Glow Stick. I thought he was just trying to impress this girl, but his grandpa really did invent it.

Trying to grasp this episode:

Danielle: She never got her package!

Lindsay: There are so many questions I have about this potato and aluminum foil. For one, what happened to her dinner potato?

Danielle: She ate it.

Lindsay: But wouldn’t she save it for dinner if it was her dinner potato?

Danielle: But she ate it. I don’t know what else to tell you… But is this tin foil some pop culture reference I’m missing out on?

Lindsay: I don’t. I … no.

Danielle: I don’t understand why she put the tin foil in the toilet. Can we agree that we didn’t understand this episode?

Lindsay: Yes.

On Shania Twain (this is the last time, we promise):

Danielle: I still don’t think that’s her.
