Bush Party Season is the second episode of Season 6 of Letterkenny.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
The Hicks host a bush party. The skids make an enemy.
Cold Open[edit | edit source]
The dog gave you a wee bit of a scare the other day… — Wayne
Sitting at the barn, the Hicks discuss Gus, whose odd behavior led Wayne to think the dog was having a stroke. Katy admonishes him, as he knew Gus was on medication and was expected to pass bladder stones. Katy, in fact, thinks Gus faked the stroke so he could get a thermometer up the bum. Wayne does not appreciate the implication.
If you're coming, you better come correct. — Wayne
Katy says it directly: Gus is gay. Wayne denies it quietly. Katy points out, for instance, that he has never mounted a female. She asks Daryl if he cares, and he does not; she asks Dan if he cares, but stops when he begins to quote Professor Tricia. Wayne says he does not care either, but not to mention it around McMurray, who gets weird about discussing such matters. They proceed to do imitations of McMurray being uncomfortable talking about homosexuality, asserting "I ain't one of ya" and "I love my wife" and acknowledging that "you're here to stay."
You're all right with it if the dog's gay, as much you're told gays are here to stay. Guess he does always spring that red rocket when he's up on your lap. So that was in the cards. — Wayne
Plot Summary[edit | edit source]
Wayne and Daryl drop off Marie Fred and Anik at the gym. Reilly and Jonesy stop them for an impromptu pow-wow, which Wayne and Daryl somewhat reluctantly agree to. They ask if they are comfortable sending the women in unescorted, as Jonesy warns that the gym is a "chest puffer convention." They are unconcerned; as Wayne always says, "No reason not to trust her till she gives you one." They praise Wayne and Daryl's mature approach, and say they will attend the bush party the Hicks are hosting at the farm.
They then report that they have a bet with Ron and Dax to see who can score "tally the most takedowns," sexually speaking. Wayne, speaking ironically, praises their mature approach as well, though this is lost on the hockey players.
Gotta get it when the gettin's goodest, and the good's about to get got. Get it? — Jonesy
They also reports that a chest-puffer, home for the summer, has been beaking about being the toughest guy in his college town. Since his college town is bigger than Letterkenny, the implication is that he would also be the toughest guy in Letterkenny. Wayne seems unconcerned; after all, Daryl says, suckers are fair game at a bush party.
Tyson and Joint Boy, leaving the gym, also warn Wayne that some guy is beaking about being the toughest guy in Letterkenny. Wayne, still unconcerned, asks JB how that worked out for him (a reference to their fight in Super Soft Birthday). They exchange low bones and head out. Reilly and Jonesy chirp at one of the chest-puffers passing by, but are interrupted by Shoresy, who goes after their mothers remorselessly.
Fuck you, Jonesy. Your mom shot cum straight across the room and killed my Siamese fighting fish, threw off the pH levels in my aquarium, you piece of shit. — Shoresy
Roald carefully adds drops of a green liquid into a vial, to Gae's approval. They are in the kitchen at Gae's house in the city, adding dye to GHB so it can be used as a party drug without the fear that it will be used as a date rape drug. Roald wants to try it himself, but Gae says she likes sober Roald, and Roald likes sober Gae, but not as much as Gae likes sober Stewart, who calls from the other room. She walks over, revealing him on the bed, hands tied up, dressed only in underwear. She enters, closing the drapes behind her.
Anik and Marie-Fred are working out on the stationary bikes. They are approached by two men, but they leave after Marie-Fred says a firm "non." Daryl meanwhile finds Wayne in the barn, to have a conversation "just 'tween us girls." Each pair has a conversation about how much sex they have been having with their respective partners. The women are pleased with the men's stamina, though the men are worried about maintaining their health. Wayne stresses the importance of staying hydrated.
At the club, two girls come back to the bar to find their drinks tinged; someone has adulterated them with the Skids' GHB. They had asked the drug dealer to watch them, but clearly he had not. They tell him to stop selling his un-dyed GHB, because it's not safe, though he points out:
It's not supposed to be safe. It's drugs. — The Dealer
They tell him no one will buy it from him anyway, and everyone will only buy the green stuff. He is alarmed to hear that he has competition from vigilantes.
The Hicks, Joint Boy and Tyson are at the kitchen table when Wayne gets a call from the chest-puffer, who will be coming to the bush party. Katy, Anik, and Marie Fred enter, and all head outside. As they walk into the gathering crowd, various challengers approach, but Wayne lets Tyson and Joint Boy clear them away.
Reaching their station, they see look at the edge of the party and two Mennonite boys and two Mennonite girls (Charity and Chastity Dyck), all traditionally dressed. The Mennonites head into the woods, then emerge in ordinary street clothes. The boys are immediately set upon by Ron and Dax, whereas the girls are approached by Reilly and Jonesy. Anik asks what is going on, to which Katy drily replies "Takedowns, by the looks of it."
Pressed, Katy explains some differences between Amish and Mennonites (who Wayne calls "Mennonappers," Daryl calls "Menno-Knight riders," and Dan sneeringly calls "Schmellies). The four teens are on their rumspringa, a period when they are allowed to go out into the "English" world and explore without consequences. The idea is to help them decide whether they want to live in the modern world or return to their families to live as Mennonites permanently, a life that offers a whole lot of chorin' (according to Wayne), great pride in community (according to Daryl), and generations and generations of inbreedin's (according to Dan). Anik asks how many stay in the English world, to which Katy answers somewhat cryptically "Few… but some do." They watch the Mennonite teens leave with their new companions.
Stewart and Gae scold Roald for being indiscreet about their green GHB. They are found, however, by the club girls, who thank them for their vigilante work. The dealer observes them making a transaction.
The Chest Puffer appears at the bonfire at the bush party and calls out Wayne. Katy asks "who the fuck are you?"
I'm the toughest guy in Letterkenny. — Chest Puffer
Wayne goes through his pre-fight routine and they scrap, while Joint Boy and Tyson prevent the Chest Puffer's friends from joining in. After exchanging blows, causing Wayne to rip his shirt, Wayne knocks the Chest Puffer to the ground, then offers him a hand up to welcome him back to the party.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
- Shoresy: Fuck you, Jonesy, your mom ugly-cried 'cause she left the lens cap on the camcorder last night. It's fuckin' amateur hour over there.
- Gae: GHB is the best party drug when used properly.… It's like the chattiness of good blow with the euphoric high of good M.… And half the comedown.… And you keep your appetite.… You kind of just flail.
- Stewart: Has our modus operandi escaped you?
Gae: Our M.O.
Roald: Fuck emo!
Roald: I'm to spit in this?
Gae: Veil your transaction!
Roald: I'm down for trans action.
Running Gags[edit | edit source]
- There's no such thing as a three-knuckler
- The Hicks doing imitations of McMurray
- They don't ask how, they ask how many
- Low bones
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- GHB, gamma-hydroxybutyrate, is colorless and odorless, leading to its potential use as a rape drug. Various products have been marketed to test for its presence (and similardrugs) in a drink, turning green or turning the drink green. Gae's method skips this step by dying the drug itself.
- Wayne tells the chest-puffer on the phone that the party is on the property, in contrast to his degen rivals, who are told not to come up the property.
