Grace (episode 14) returns to the studio, clearly distraught, after hearing the big announcement from last week.
We hear about Jack’s college graduation ceremony as Gavin talks about optimistic graduation speeches. Should graduation speeches preach (false?) optimism to young adults or should we be giving more realistic speeches. Maybe optimistic graduation speeches set up unrealistic expectations of the world after schooling, or maybe we’re just a bunch of jaded old people… Meanwhile, Jack recounts the recent tale of his near-death experience. We talk about what our final thoughts would be under such circumstances.
Afterwards, clearly spooked by his near-death experience, Jack asks Grace if his standards of getting married by the age of 28 is realistic.
