If you’ve ever wondered what will happen to New Girl’s Jess when she sings her feelings one time too many or to Garden State’s Sam when she dances uniquely instead of picking up the kids here’s your answer: they’ll be shipped off to the State Home for Manic Pixie Dream Girls. No matter how it hurts their troubled yet sensitive partners, they’ll know it’s the right thing to do.
While hilarious the MPDG State Home seems to be enabling the girls rather than rehabilitating them so some day they’ll be able to marvel at the beauty of a spider-web for a few minutes rather than a full work day. If they’re just going to ply them with crafts and the freedom to dance in the rain they’re never going to get better. They’ll just keep sending their friends on the other side little glitter filled notes with The Shins lyrics scribbled on the back.
