“Moody’s Point” was arguably the biggest fan-favorite from “The Amanda Show.” Skewering teen dramas like “Dawson’s Creek” with its smart satire, the sketch portrayed a young teen named Moody who lived up to her name in every way imaginable.
Though the over-the-top drama made for great laughs, from time to time it also portrayed those pesky teenage feelings all of us have had from time to time, even as adults.
Here are six of the most relatable moments from “Moody’s Point.”
When Moody verbalized our internal anguish:
Whether our souls are teenaged, adult or middle-aged, it often seems like no one understands us. Except maybe Sternum, who is observed reading “Chicken Soup for the Tortured Teenage Soul.”
When Moody’s dad explained parties in a nutshell:
In other words, parties are really confusing and it’s tough to get out of them.
When medical science failed Moody:
It just goes to show that medical training isn’t good for everything. The world’s best nurse can’t fix a bad grade on a test, or a broken heart, for example.
When Moody’s dad showed us that life isn’t always what it seems:
In other words… if you expected that cat to have biscuits just because she’s in the oven, you’d be wrong. It’s a classic case of finding the wrong thing in the right place. Alternatively, the lesson may be that the wisdom of fathers doesn’t hold up to scrutiny!
When Misty described our crappiest moments:
Basically every Monday at school or at work, and sometimes Tuesday through Friday, too.
When Moody’s mom was stuck in a rut:
OK, so maybe we haven’t had this particular experience like Moody’s mom, but the cry for help that falls on deaf ears is pretty relatable. “Hot air balloon” could be code for “a friend I’m having trouble with” “math class” “traffic” or “the internet.”
Speaking of which, maybe it’s time to get some fresh air. But maybe stay away from hot air balloons, you know, just in case.
