Wingman Wayne is the fourth episode of Season 1 of Letterkenny.

Synopsis[]

It’s competition time in Letterkenny! The first Hick to score some tail gets fifty bucks off their bar tab.

Cold Open[]

You're out getting good with your pals the other night… — Wayne

The Hicks discuss their sexual dry spells. Gail points out that students will be home soon for the summer, which could cure their spring fever if the Hicks are on their game. She offers $50 off the bar tab for whoever breaks the dry spell first, relating going into "cougar mode" last year where she might have hooked up with a second cousin.

You naturally prefer companionship, but I guess there's a lot worse things than playing a little one-man couch hockey in the dark. — Wayne


Plot Summary[]

At the game, Reilly and Jonesy alternate between chirping at the opponents and admiring the snipers in the stands. They wish Katy was with them.

The Hicks prepare for the first Thirsty Thursday. Wayne says he most excited about playing Buck Hunter. He and Daryl explain why they don't wear belts.

'Cause we buy pants that fucking fit. — Wayne

Reilly and Jonesy sit in Reilly's car bemoaning their tenth loss in a row. They go down the roster disparaging the other players. They ask Katy why she doesn't come to the games, and she says it's because they never play. They meet with the Coach, who calls them out as poseurs who only care about the hockey player lifestyle. They seek to prove him wrong.

Letterkenny Skip Legs

On Night 1 of the bet at MoDean's, the Hicks are deep in conversation; Dan explains why you never give a sword to a hooker. Gail warns Daryl off Kyle Schneidstiller's sister— "she's been knocked up twice— and Wayne mentions that she dated Boots for a while. They discuss whether the Ginger and Boots were able to fuck an ostrich, as rumoured. They observe another girl putting on a "hair show" trying to attract Daryl's attention. Daryl says he will pursue—after a couple more drinks.

The hockey players discuss their workout plans, ripping every kind of exercise—except legs. Jonesy hates doing legs.

Let's skip leg day. — Reilly

On Night 2, McMurray tells Wayne about Angie's latest boyfriend, his car, and his clothing choices, in considerable detail. A woman offers Wayne a quick squeezer in the parking lot, but he does not take her up. Dan and Daryl comment on another patron, who passes them. Wayne observes her touching Dan's back in an "unnecessary squeeze-by" and suggests he pursue. Dan says he will—after a couple more drinks.

Reilly and Jonesy are studying a recording of the game when they are joined by Katy. They plan to "rip silly plyometrics" afterwards and invite her to watch, which she accepts. After watching them, she has them take off their shirts, and agrees to come watch them play.

On Night 3, a young woman named Jessica—evidently Jivin' Pete's daughter—approaches Wayne and asks where to find the washroom. He observes that she gave him "the big eyes," with her face straight but her eyes looking up like a puppy dog. He looks over and she gives him the big eyes again, inviting him to join her in the washroom with a nod. Wayne gets up to accept the offer, but sees Angie's name on the shift schedule, and leaves instead.

Coach notices Jonesy and Reilly's new hustle and praises them. Shoresy and the other players, however, notice Katy in the stands and make crude remarks about her, bothering Reilly and Jonesy. They argue over who has dibs on her digits.

A dibs is a dibs is a dibs, buddy! — Shoresy

Gail and Katy lament the pedestrian romantic efforts of the Hicks. Reilly and Jonesy come by the bar after the game. Katy tells them she enjoyed the game, but they tell her to stop coming because she is "too distracting for the boys." She tells them she'll have to give her digits to one of their teammates.

Post-credits scene[]

The post-credits scene features pillow talk between Reilly and Jonesy in bed, talking about their respective days: the exercises that they "almost" did, the sandwich Reilly ate, and Kaboom Atomic's flow. Concluding this, Reilly coyly says there is "one more thing" to take care of before sleeping: a bit of "one-man couch hockey," i.e. "hand to gland combat," i.e. aggressively masturbate. The camera then zooms out to show that they are not in bed together, but video chatting from separate rooms on laptops, as Jonesy hits a key and the sounds of a pornographic actress are heard.

Callbacks and Running Gags[]

Introduced[]

  • Reilly and Jonesy hate leg day

Recurring[]

Cultural References[]

  • The Florida Grapefruit League is a group of 15 Major League Baseball teams which play exhibition games against each other during spring training in Florida.
  • Player #22, whom Reilly and Jonesy chirp, wears a uniform for the Sudbury Nickel Barons, a Junior A team which played in Sudbury from 2012 to 2015 (the franchise in 2022 plays as the Greater Sudbury Cubs). It is unlikely in real life that a team from Sudbury would play a game against Letterkenny, asuuming the latter is a stand-in for Listowel, as they are a considerable distance from one another and would have competed in different leagues.
  • Winners Merchants is an off-price clothing chain, a sister company to Marshalls and TJ Maxx in the U.S. The St. Jacobs Farmers' Market, located in Waterloo, Ontario, is the largest year-round farmers market and flea market in Canada.
  • Hockey players often use familiarizing diminutives with each other. These may be formed by shortening the name and adding an "s" (e.g. "Eags" for Ben Eager) or "r" (e.g. "Kaner" for Evander Kane) to the name, but by far the most common pattern is to fit a "y" sound, e.g. "Ovie" for Alexander Ovechkin. Every Shamrock named in this episode follows this pattern, which is also lampooned in A Fuss in the Back Bush for other of Jonesy and Reilly's associates.
  • "Coopsy" playing like "poopsy" introduces a long list of NHL player references: "Milan Poocic," Milan Lucic; "P.K. Pooban," P.K. Sibban; "Ryan Poo-gent Hopkins," Ryan Nugent-Hopkins; "Pookka Rask," Tuukka Rask; "Mikko and Saku Koi-poo," Mikko Koivu and Saku Koivu. Later in the episode, "Claude Gir-poo," Claude Giroux and "Roberto Poo-ongo," Roberto Luongo.
  • Repeatedly "skipping leg day" would make one's upper body development look more impressive compared to one's less-developed legs. This may be a jab at Reilly and Jonesy being more interested in appearances than performance.

Trivia[]

  • Jivin' Pete appears to be of similar age to the Hicks as depicted in Season 3. It seems unlikely "Jessica" could be his daughter if this were the case, particularly as Wayne is sensitive about involvement with women who are much younger than he is. This kind of vagueness of character ages is unexplained.
  • When Wayne sees the shift schedule at MoDean's, only Angie's name is legible.
  • Reilly and Jonesy report greater success with college and university girls in The Three Wise Men and Bush Party Season

Music[]

According to Tunefind, the following songs are featured in the episode:

  • Tries by Kaboom Atomic, Aalo Guha (Reilly and Jonesy scorn their teammates)
  • Haunted House by Dead Ghosts (first night at MoDean's)
  • Getting Older by Dead Ghosts (second night at MoDean's)
  • Crazy Glue by The Bloggers (third night at MoDean's)
  • That's It, That's All by We Are The City (end credits)
