[S14E5] The Tall Man

While on a school field trip to a candy factory, Butters spots actor Tom Cruise working there, packing fudge into boxes. Stan, who previously told Cruise that his acting is not as good as others' in "Trapped in the Closet", accidentally insults him again by calling him a "fudge packer," as Cruise claims to be fly fishing. Cruise then recruits 200 other celebrities who have been ridiculed by the town of South Park to bring a class action lawsuit against the town. Stan returns to the factory with his father Randy to try to apologize and convince Cruise to drop the suit, but also finds it difficult not to call him a fudge packer as well since he was literally packing fudge while they spoke. An angry Cruise agrees to do so, but only if they can help Cruise meet Muhammad. This causes an uproar because depictions of Muhammad are forbidden, and the townsfolk fear that forcing Muhammad to appear in public will drive Muslim radicals to bomb the town. Stan and Kyle go to the Super Best Friends, a squad of superhero-like religious figures (Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha, Moses, Krishna, Laozi, Joseph Smith and "Seaman") of which Muhammad is a member, to request he return with them to South Park. Meanwhile, it is revealed that Cruise and the other celebrities only want Muhammad for his "goo," as Rob Reiner, previously shown to be filled with "goo" in "Butt Out," has invented a machine to transfer Muhammad's "goo" to the celebrities, which they believe will make them immune to ridicule, just like Muhammad.

And I think there was even a moment of hurt in the audience locking eyes with him, which ended the flashback series. So I don't know. I like the realism component, but I think that it could get on the verge of too real too. Yeah. Yeah, do you remember that movie closer with Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Clive Owen, was basically about these couples that were like cheating on each other. Hated each other. Yeah, I think this was in 2004 and I think that movie was too ahead of its time because people weren't like this is too much too real, but then marriage story came in, you know, recently. And I think people want to, you know, this is going to sound really crazy, but why we don't have robots that look like humans is because they actually had this study where they asked people, would you want a robot to look like a human and people said, no, I don't want. I don't want something that's supposed to be fantasy to look too much like reality. And I think movies really show that too. It's like people don't want it to be that real. No. But yeah, it does get real after you end a microwave relationship. I think I'm glad that we went into this with a mirror who's our guest today. And you know, we talked about this in the dating trauma episode, one of our most popular episodes with Janice. A few seasons back. And these types of relationships are really brushed under the rug, they're almost seen as insignificant, a lot of times 'cause your friends and family will be like, well, you guys weren't in a real relationship. Maybe you never defined the relationship. Maybe you didn't even have sex, like there's so many, like you didn't do this. So it's not real, but it totally undermines the feelings of what happens when you you almost get your hopes up that you've met someone amazing that this life will begin. The credits will roll and it will continue and then it just stops. Yeah. And unfortunately, I hate that we minimize it, but the fortunate thing is whenever I've been in these microwave relationships, my takeaway is, wow, I can feel that way about something. Yes. I have the capacity to have this feeling for someone. That's amazing because I can have that again with someone else. As long as you can learn from it and it doesn't keep happening over and over again. And I know for me, I remember, this was actually at our event. That we did a long, long time ago. We did this event in person. So long ago, past life. And I had this microwave relationship, I would call it was probably come month or so, but I really thought like this was someone I was going to date. And he ended up ghosting me, which is how a lot of microwave relationships end. Sometimes, you know, there'll be some closure that the person says they're just done, but a lot of times it will be also a ghost and I remember being really upset about this. But when we actually had our event, he was there. Randomly. And I didn't even remember his date. So I feel like it put in perspective that in the grand scheme of things, what can feel like the end of the world in the moment? Really ends up not being, especially when you meet someone that's a reciprocal, real, deep relationship that extends beyond the microwave. Yeah, so slow cooker. I still don't know his name. But yeah, that's the point of it, right? I think we always could put a perspective. Okay, in 5 years, what I've met by person, will I even remember this person, you know? I just, I just really hope for us to get an email, one of these days, and the subject line is like, it's Tim. That would be a big, that would be amazing. You remember your name? I remember where he worked. What he looks like. I have no idea what his name is. No idea. No. I used to keep a notebook of all the people that I either had something with or had a crush on. I used to keep a notebook of names because I didn't want to forget people's names, but then yeah, I agree. At some point you're like, I don't care. But then anytime I talk about significant relationships I've had. These people don't even come up. In the moment, I felt like they were so important. They never come up. I feel like I've had probably like ten microwave relationships over the last ten years, but I don't even quantify them as relationship history anymore. Which is the hope. Hopefully if you're in this pattern of feeling like you only have microwave relationships, one day someone will show you that all these people were insignificant. Oh, oh, related to our question of today. Okay, let me pull this up. Someone wrote in and said, I can't seem to get past three months. When it comes to dating, what am I doing wrong? Am I approaching dating not in the right way? Yeah. These are kind of microwave relationships. We've seen this happen, especially today.

Okay, let's hear it from a mirror about microwave relationships. I'm stoked because we're going to be talking about a topic that we have a term for. We're going to call this microwave relationships, okay? And what are microwave relationships? Do you like that mirror? Yeah, I did. Describe to so well, right? There are short, many relationships that are short, but intense, and they kind of leave with long-lasting effects. So kind of like a microwave, it's intense for however many minutes, you put in there, things get heated up, and then once you take it out of the microwave, it's still hot, right? So it's not like it's over. And then a cool style real fast. That it cools out. Yes. And maybe it tastes a little different than putting in the oven for two hours, but it still doesn't drop. And it's still losing a pressure. I'm liking this term more and more. But we are here to talk about microwave relationships that may last one to three months, but it's such an intense feeling that it could take some people years to get over. And maybe your relationship was defined, maybe it wasn't, but it has lasting impact. The mirror, your nodding your head. Exactly. You are, you are here to talk. I am totally exactly this, who is a mere he's 31 years old, lives in New York City, been there for the past 5 years, originally from turkey, currently dating someone but having to find the relationship, but not the person that we will be talking about today or the relationship we'll be talking about today. So we are going to focus our attention on this microwave relationship you had and how it affected you. So let's start there, tell us about the story. How did you first meet her? Dating apps? So we match and then we start talking. We talk briefly with each other very briefly. I feel like when you talk or you have kind of like phone conversation before going on a first date, it creates some sort of expectation. So before going on a date, you're just like, I don't know, what do you do for work? What I do, those kind of stuff. And then I was like, okay, like this week, I don't have that much to do. Let's meet and then she was like, okay, and then going on a first date, I went with really little expectation. So when she walked in, I was like, oh my God, this is it. I was like really mind blown. So when I saw her, I was like, oh my God. And then this is the one thing that you are attracted to person, right? And then when we start talking, I was just like, there is a chemistry, like you kind of like similar things. She was an artist, like her painting was amazing. I architect. So like kind of like the same thing, what we do for our job. The other thing is that she really valued the family. So I feel like it's really important for me to select the first date I was like, oh my God, I think I find one. So after the first date. After the first day, I was pretty sure I was like, oh my God, this is really. This might be the one. So I will just put my time and try to make it work. So it sounds like on the app, you were definitely attracted, but maybe not to the level that when she walked through the door. But when she walked to the door is pretty instant for you. How would things progress after this date? Did you feel like she felt the same chemistry you felt? Yeah, I think so because after she went back home, she texted me. She was like, how great time she had, and then she wanted to see me again. That's what she said. The next day we did a meet, we just text each other, and then we set up another date for the next day, following day. 041b061a72
