It was bound to happen: a show about the LGBT community and an episode about bathrooms. In the December 29 episode of Work in Progress, “161, 153, 137, 122, 106, 104, 102 (We're Still Counting Almonds),” main character Abby (Abby McEnany), who is a ****, laments how she’s confused for a man when she uses the bathroom.
Such is the main plot of the episode, with Abby's partner, Chris (Theo Germaine), who is a transgender man, describing the use of “Refuge Restrooms,” which, as Chris explains, is an app for finding single-stall restrooms.
Abby - Man - Police - Friend - Campbell
Abby being confused for a man even gets the police involved. Her friend, Campbell (Celeste Pechous), assures inquiring police officers that Abby is a woman, explaining, “I'm somewhat of an expert in this arena, and in there is wall-to-wall vag. Yeah, wall-to-wall vag,” as she gestures to Abby. As if such a line were not lacking class enough, Abby has to chime in with “a gentle reminder [that] not all women have vaginas.”
The episode concludes with a several minutes long rant Abby goes on as she’s mistaken once again for a man while using the women’s restroom at a Dolly Parton concert. Two men even follow her in. Abby manages to curse out all those present, by using the c-word, and also offends a disabled young woman and a nun:
Woman - Excuse - Women - Room
Woman #1: Excuse me, this is the women's room.
Abby: I know.
Man #1: Oh, it is.
Woman #2: There are three men in the ladies room.
Abby - Whoa - Whoa - Whoa - Minute
Abby: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold on a minute. I'm a woman.
Man #1: I'm not.
Man #2: I'm not either.
Man #1: Yeah, we just followed him.
Abby - Woman
Abby: I'm a woman.
Man #2: We didn't know. We just followed him-- her.
Woman #2: Well, I think you should all leave.
Abby: Excuse me.
Man - Yeah
Man #1: Yeah, let's leave.
Abby: No, no, no, we're not going any......
