In the beginning, Mia and Mel are notified by Claire’s assistant Josh (Karan Soni) about her interest in the company Mia & Mel. Mia is initially reluctant, but Mel, more aware of their financials than Mia, is interested from the start. In order to convince Mia to attend the meeting, Mel takes her drinking and to karaoke.
In the scene, Rose Byrne shows off her skills in physical comedy by moving in over-the-top and exaggerated ways while staying true to the quiet, reserved nature of Mel by also making her movements awkward.
After one of their meetings with Claire, Mia did not like what she had heard. She then proceeds to rant about Claire to Mel, mainly by calling her demeaning names and she ends the rant by saying that Claire has a “blue waffle.” Mia proceeds to admit that she does not know what that is, but Claire for sure has one.
The writers, Adam Cole-Kelly and Sam Pitman, deserve recognition for the hilarious rant. However, Tiffany Haddish’s delivery of the rant and the emotion she puts into it just makes it even better and much funnier.
