Alternate title for this episode: "I made it through our entire interview without obnoxiously complimenting Jenny's accent, are you proud of me???" First, Abby debunks the stereotype that fatness is associated with (and caused by) depression. Then she is joined by Jenny O'Leary, a West End musical theatre actress who originated the role of Martha Dunnstock in Heathers in the UK. They talk about the British school system, arts funding, college auditions, the flaws in Martha's characterization, ageism, the roller coaster fear, Les Miserables, and why they both feel insulted when they're told they should play Tracy Turnblad!
