"Going Down the Road" Part 1Season 4 Episodes 21 & 22
Canadian airdate: February 7th & 14th, 2005
Jay and Silent Bob Go Canadian, Eh? has begun filming, just a week after Kevin came to Canada and selected Degrassi as the set. I don't know if that is a ridiculously short amount of time to begin production for a normal movie, but it's not as if Kevin has ever spent more than a weekend putting together a film.
There's Alanis Morissette up there. Kevin last cast Alanis as God on Dogma. Hey, a woman as God, that's something some chick would do for her student film. I heard that Kevin tried to get Ben Affleck to come on Degrassi as well, but Affleck declined, saying something about wanting to lay low. Someone on the internet pointed out that was Hollywood code for his last few films bombed so appearing a children's show in Canada would damage his reputation.
Jay hits on Ashley then is taken off with Alanis to have sex. Mewes could do better.
Kevin shows Caitlin his DVD set of Ryan's Planet, Caitlin's old TV show. In the commentary, they mention how stupid the cover photo looks. It's kind of creepy really.
Look at how Jason spends his time hitting on all the teenage girls. In commentary, Jason says he wanted to sleep with all of the girls. They mention how Stacey Farber (Ellie) hated dressing as Goth on the show. I don't blame her for that, Goths suck and she knew it. So in case you ever wondered why Ellie stopped dressing like a vampire, it's not because they decided the character would grow out of that phase, it's because the actress thought it was stupid.
Kevin and Jason are sitting back in their trailer presumably drinking lots of Canadian Club. We get to see Jason's real hair here. I am sad that his Jay hair is just a wig. Caitlin comes by and gives Kevin an autographed poster. That poster is going to be stained in an hour, if you get my drift. He just needs to get Mewes out of there.
Eh, Mewes has been present before.
Kevin pulls some strings in Hollywood and gets Caitlin a job offer to move to Los Angeles to renew Ryan's Planet. This is definitely a fictionalized Kevin Smith, because this Kevin has come clout in Hollywood.
In the commentary, Jason asks if Stacie ever had sex with Pat (the guy who plays Joey) in real life. Stacie says no because Pat was like a brother to her. Jason says that's why he thinks they had sex. Stacie gets uncomfortable.
Check out Jason's hat.
Jason forgets who Aaron is, even though Aaron is in the room doing commentary with him.
Meanwhile, Craig wants to go to a music school in London for the summer to follow Ashley. After some debate, Joey agrees to let Craig go to Britain. Aaron mentions that Jimmy is in the wheelchair hating Craig at the moment.
How about the Kevin Smith film fest at the theater? That's pretty cool as long as they make sure to show Mallrats. I don't understand how Kevin can hate that film but think Dogma was a thought provoking masterpiece. Mallrats is at least as funny and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
Here's where things get naughty. Kevin and Caitlin go to a bar. Caitlin gets drunk and ends up kissing Kevin. This is the entire reason Kevin came on the show. This is the happiest moment of his whole life.
In the commentary, Kevin tries to clear the air by stating that he hasn't been sitting around for 15 years waiting to kiss fictional character. Yeah, right. Lair, liar, extra wide pants on fire. Jason asks if the kiss got Caitlin wet and her nipples hard. Kevin also denies he got a hard on from the kiss. I can believe that because old age and overeating can make that difficult.
Caitlin comes to Joey's house and kisses him and asks him to marry her. In the commentary, Jason says it would be awesome if Caitlin said to Joey "How does he taste?" Everyone laughs and laughs.
The next day, Craig heads off to England. Jason says Craig got to second base with Joey and Caitlin when they hugged. This is related to a joke about bases in Canada that you'll have to hear the commentary to know, I am not going to transcribe it. I have standards, my fiend.
Anyway, Craig hasn't been taking his crazy pills, so he goes crazy and doesn't
go to the airport. Where Craig goes will be revealed in PART 2 of our
exciting two parter.
