Butterknife Monday: Key Witness

This week featured a very different episode of Butterknife than we're used to. This is the first we hear of Ronald's job as a profession for which he is paid, this is the first we see of any contact outside of his wife and his job, and this is the first time we have a scene featuring Mary without Ronald. Each of these makes for interesting viewing, yet it's Mary getting stuck under the bed that resonates. In fact, both segments which revolve around Ronald's non-professional life are more directly relatable than those of previous episodes. Who hasn't felt silently judged when reading in public? Maybe only the neurotics. Mary getting stuck under the bed is the funniest scene yet produced for the series, and the image of Ronald and Mary's feet hanging over the bed is a wonderful image to close the episode.
