Pop quiz, neurot-shot: Your roommate/crush has just humiliated you sexually, so what do you do? What do you do?

If you’re Please Like Me‘s Josh (Josh Thomas), the answer might just be “Go to the zoo!” Technically, the idea comes from Josh’s mum, but his ex Claire (Caitlin Stasey) thinks it might be consoling after a rough run-in with Patrick (Charles Cottier). In typical Josh fashion, even the most mundane activity stirs up a comically conflicted monologue in which the lovably neurotic protagonist compares himself to a panda, insults Claire, and talks about masturbating monkeys… for starters.

Please Like Me airs Fridays at 10:30 p.m. on Pivot.
