Uaaah okay now I have to do a feelings post on these three darlings.
Mabel, Grenda, and Candy are the most adorable little girls ever on TV and I’m so glad they exist as sympathetic characters instead of ‘weirdos’.
Grenda is big and butch and has a lizard, all of which are very taboo traits for a young girl to have, and the writing does show that she is bullied for these things.
Candy is shown as obviously foreign, probably having learned english as a second language, and shows an interesting and unusual train of thought - trying out things in a junior science kind of way.
Both these characters would probably have been scripted as unsympathetic on any other show, but they aren’t. They become Mabel’s friends within the first two minutes of showing up.
And the way Mabel reacts to them.. just.. “I’ve found my people”. She recognizes them as kindred spirits and tries to win a competition for THEIR SAKE.
It’s just a really good, sweet portrayal of girl friendships.
I prolly cried a bit.

"Someone arrange that fucking sheet." Niki snaps, taking his eye away from the camera and glaring at the new model they’ve given him, James Hunt.
The man in question grins at Niki and nudges his leg so that the sheet that was supposed to be covering his groin, slips to the floor and James is lying there in the nude.
"Oops." James says, staring straight at Niki. "What a pity."
"Shut up." Niki feels his face flush and looks around angrily for an assistant. "Gemma, fix the sheet."
The woman in question giggles at James’ roaming eyes and delicately places the sheet over James’ modesty.
"We should do this again." James winks, although he’s looking at Niki, "You have an artful way of adjusting bed sheets."
"Oh for fucks sake." Niki sighs, exasperated. "Gemma, get out of the shot."
Gemma removes herself from the scene with a sway of her hips and a smile at James. Niki tries not to scream and motions for everyone to leave. “It’ll be easier with just us two.”
"Lot of things you can do with just two people." James calls out and Niki gives him the stare of death that leaves most people quaking in their boots.
James merely blows Niki a kiss and smirks like he’s God’s gift to the universe. Niki wants to punch him and kiss him all at the same time.
