Origin of the episode title[edit]

Regarding a Silence of the Lambs character's shoddy craftsmanship: "If you can't make a skin suit out of just one portly lady, maybe it's time to go to Crazy Person F.I.T."


Happy Summer Solstice! This week's episode of How Was Your Week begins with a review of Rock of Ages, and segues into an important realization about Hannibal Lecter. There is also talk of a ghost hunter's caffeine addiction, a gynecologist's affection for a Comedy Central show, and how to integrate a hot summer color into your life, EVEN IF YOU ARE AFRAID.

And the guests! The guests are sublime. First, JESSI KLEIN joins Julie to talk about body image stuff, Maine, Adam Carolla, her beloved guinea pig and her fantastic idea for a Paul McCartney-ish song called "Maybe I'm Disgusting."

Then, TAVI GEVINSON (Rookie) is here to talk about young people and inspiration, John Waters, her favorite character on Girls, and the part of musicals where old ladies lift up their skirts and do a little dance!

Plus: How the name Tavi is more predictive, personality-wise than Emily, who Julianne Hough is, the excess of peach eyeshadow in the 1990s, the, when to mention attachment parenting at a party, and what "The Andy Cohen edit" of a movie entails. A fun and fancy show!


This episode opens with the debut of "His Name Was Jimmy," a song written by Julie to the tune of Copacabana.

Jimmy Jazz gained 2 pounds in his latest check-up, and he had chin acne.
