Racism is good.
Walter and Deepal's discussion of race finds its way to the psyche of the white male cultural tourist, a monster of our own making. Disclaimer: the discussion reflects their narrow experience w/r/t race and they probably deserve a severe dressing down.
Online dating is a much dirtier cesspool of rejection than conventional dating.
Deepal lays out three reasons online dating is replete with rejection and Walter adds insult to injury, noting that only losers online date.
No one's job is special.
Walter equates a barista spilling coffee to a trauma surgeon killing a patient and gets trapped in an unrelated, self-spun web of logic.
Lawyers aren't liars; in fact, they're more honest than you.
Deepal comes out swinging against the misconception that lawyers are dishonest and Walter points out that he's swinging in the wrong direction. They recalibrate and discuss why people really hate lawyers.
There's no such thing as an inherent preference. Everything we like is a deliberate decision.
Walter is okay with convincing 16 year olds to ditch their friends and play golf and Deepal is okay with spending three hundred million dollars on a yacht, yet they each seem incapable of comprehending the other's position.
Good art is no good.
Blackish and Fresh Off the Boat are the pinnacles of good art as far as Deepal's concerned and Walter can't understand why they're talking about ABC sitcoms.
People don't put themselves in other people's shoes. They put themselves in their own shoes and then troll the internet.
In a moment of profound self-reflection, Walter realizes he's been trolling his parents all along.
Social awkwardness is objectively bad.
Walter displays an impressive sense of maturity in the face of Deepal's insistence on oppressing the socially oppressed.
Successful people are just good at dealing with boredom.
What do Bill Gates, Jay-Z and Mahatma Gandhi all have in common? They were all extremely bored.
