Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow.
I hope I’m not the only one to notice this, but there was a lot of Enid Loopner in this character Christina played. Not just the way she looked but just the way she spoke and acted reminded me a whole lot like the Jane Curtin character. I hope that they were inspired by Jane’s character to want to do something similar. Also the way she was dressed in that sketch looked like how Lisa Loopner was dressed in the Nerd Nativity sketch.
