Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 1, Episode 8 “My Mom, Greg’s Mom and Josh’s Sweet Dance Moves!”

Rebecca’s mom visits for the holidays and Rebecca, eager to please, embellishes some facts about her life, which all come crashing down at a local holiday event. Meanwhile, Greg spends Christmas Eve with his mother and discovers he actually might be the problem relative.

Spoken entirely in Yiddish, the cold opening is definitely among the cutest we’ve seen this season. It was daring, and clever to have Rebecca’s ancestors open this episode:

"I know we are fleeing, but you couldn't open your hair?"

“I know we are fleeing, but you couldn’t open your hair?”
