When Sitcoms Collide! The episode opens with Tessa and Ryan at the lunch table. Ryan has just told her that he has to eat 30 grams of animal protein at every meal. Ryan is chowing down on a big ass drumstick, and his plate is loaded with meat. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? This has sent my physicist husband off onto a Sheldon-like riff about how much 30 grams of protein would actually be, demonstrating how many quarters it would take up to make a mass that was 30 grams. Spoiler the quarter is 5.670 g, according to The US Mint And mocking me because I had forgotten how many grams a quarter weighs. Thank goodness for TiVo.
