Abbott Elementary Recap: Barbara’s Library Showdown

Barbara takes issue with the new librarian, so Janine is forced to stand up to her.

In an act of pure pettiness, Barbara parades a line of frowning kindergartners through the hall, spouting off at Janine about how Rosalyn is the equivalent of a hostess at a hip new restaurant “who has no respect for the patrons that came before they started charging $25 to set your drink on fire.” She ends her rant by saying there needs to be changes to the program, adding a cryptic statement, “ I would hate to leave that feedback.” Then, when Babara takes her kids to a storytime session led by Rosalyn, the students’ excitement and engagement with the librarian’s expert storytelling voices throw even more gasoline on the flame. Melissa, who used the name Mildred, loves Lester’s application, but it isn’t until everyone adjourns in the break room and Jacob bursts in, excitedly sharing that he’s found a “cozy guest suite with a view,” that they realize the sitcom Gods paired them together. Melissa and Jacob end up having a lot more in common with each other than they could have imagined, beginning with their love of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and extending to their inclination for sour cream and onion popcorn seasoning.
