While talking about Olivia Newton-John in Grease:

Rajyasree: So, I used to sing this song Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee. But I used to sing it as Look At Me, I’m Rajyasree. And it was very cute, I’m just saying.

Abhinandan: It was very cute, really? Okay, I won’t say anything. See? I’m turning over a new leaf.

Rajyasree: I won’t sing it on this show but I’ll sing it for you. Even you’ll say, “How cute Raju!”

Abhinandan: (sarcastically) I’m sure I will.

Abhinandan and Rajyasree burst out laughing.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen review the films Darlings and Old; the FanCode ads featuring Ravi Shastri; Pepsi ad featuring Jacqueline Fernandes; the #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha trend; and the legacy of Olivia Newton-John.
