We’re counting down to Valentine’s Day by looking at 14 different Valentine’s Day episodes from a variety of shows. Today we’re looking at “You Also Have a Pizza” from Orange is the New Black. Let’s take a look at this episode by going over its five most romantic pairings.
1. Poussey & Franziska
Poussey makes a lot of bad decisions in this episode, but much of her relationship with Franziska and is sweet and passionate. It’s absolutely adorable when she says that love means not staring at each other, but staring in the same direction, and Franziska replies that she doesn’t like that because she enjoys staring at Poussey too much. Throughout the episode characters say how they define love and Poussey gives perhaps the best answer, saying, “It’s just chilling, you know? Kicking it with somebody, talking, making mad stupid jokes. And, like, not even wanting to go to sleep ‘cause then you might be without ‘em for a minute. And you don’t want that.”
2. Flaca & Maritza
After talking about how lonely prison is, Flaca and Maritza decide to kiss. They end up laughing and shaking their heads at the very idea, but it’s still a nice moment of comfort and affection. Maritza may roll her eyes at Flaca’s love for The Smiths, but Flaca adamantly agrees with Maritza that when you’re in love “you also have a pizza.”
3. Daya & John
Daya and John are not in a good situation, but they’re both trying. The scene where Daya suggests they act like a normal couple is heartbreaking.
4. Larry & Polly
He says “would the moon do this?” before kissing her and she still accepts him. That’s gotta count for something.
5. Healy & Katia
Healy leaves Katia a voicemail telling her how much she wants to make her proud to have him as a husband. Obviously, we’ve seen plenty of Healy being a bad guy, but in this particular episode, he is trying.
