Pamela talks a bit similarly to Galasso, doesn’t she.  I see why they clicked.

Even though this universe’s Shortpacked! is stuck in a drama-free stasis, we still get to see some of the newer characters here!  Malaya!  Jacob!  And Ninja Rick, who’s not new.  Malaya seen here is Classic Skinny Malaya (albeit in an Early Years Shortpacked! store uniform), whereas in the proper timeline, she hit age 22 and her metabolism stopped.  *looks down*  Sometimes I wish I had a Drama Tag.
