The Mindy Project: "Magic Morgan"


Aired October 8, 2013 (Series 2, Episode 4)

Thanks to Cory for letting me know about this, and to Meags for sending in a detailed writeup and screen grabs.

The show opens with a montage of Mindy (Mindy Kaling) reflecting on a recent breakup. She comes across an old photostrip while taking out the trash, and looks it over, saying, "Smiling, serious, kissing, Charlie's Angel's: classic photobooth big four."

Later on, Mindy looks at the strip again as she drinks alone on her couch, and the strip comes to life. She and the Casey in the photo have a short conversation.

Finally, near the end of the episode, Mindy takes one last look at the photostrip, kisses it and throws it into a quarry to symbolize that she is moving on.

The digitally faked photostrip doesn't look quite right, but does convey the power of the photostrip to bring back memories.
