Fresh Off the Boat: Happy Chinese New Year!

February 7, 2016 — 2 Comments

So… I caught up with Fresh Off the Boat over the weekend for my birthday and Chinese New Year~ and I made it to that episode, which apparently is the first time CNY has ever been shown on TV in the US. Jessica (Constance Wu is my favorite) is prepping for the holiday… and becomes my mom.

Jessica: I overslept. Get up! GET UP! We have to go to the airport!
Eddie: What time is it?
Jessica: 5 a.m.!
Eddie: The flight doesn’t leave until 2 in the afternoon.
Jessica: EXACTLY! WE’RE LATE!

EXACTLY!

This is where I get it from. And my aunt also features in the episode a minute later~

Happy Chinese New Year y’all bunch of lurkers!
