There are countless characters on Broad City, and each one is more loveable than the last (well, except for Bevers). Still, when picking the most relatable-slash-best person on the show, everybody knows there’s only one right answer: Garol.
Yes, Garol: the post office clerk whom Abbi fails to trick into giving up her neighbor Jeremy’s rerouted package. Though she has precious little screen time, it’s no exaggeration to say she is the great culmination of all human creation. Don’t believe us? Ask the wind what it means to be a hero — and the wind will whisper back, “I dunno. Ask Garol.”
So sure, we all know Garol’s great. But why is she the greatest?
SHE KNOWS HOW TO LIVE LIFE.
Life can be difficult. It’s hard to find the balance between work and play. Many live their whole lives never achieving this balance, but not Garol. Garol knows you only need two things in this godforsaken life: a desolate warehouse to call your own and lots of yogurt.
SHE’S A PEOPLE PERSON.
Look at the joy on Garol’s face when she meets the man whom she believes to be Jeremy, Abbi’s betrothed. And watch how quickly her heart breaks when she realizes she’s actually meeting a pack of lies. It’s almost too much to handle.
THE ACTRESS WHO PLAYS HER IS GREAT.
Garol is played by Virginia Robinson. She is (as seen in these outtakes) simply wonderful.
The point is simple: No one and nothing is better than Garol. Not even an old-timey jazz singer. Or money.
Garol, we salute you and would love to know who your yogurt dealer is.
