VIDEO! “Words With Girls” Episode 5: Mimicry

Happy Wednesday. Here’s a new episode of Words With Girls for you. It’s the longest one yet which obviously means it’s the best. In this episode, Brittani and Hannah are dating. Maybe. But they can’t be. But are they? Guess you have to watch and see for yourself.

WORDS WITH GIRLS is a mostly scripted but part-improv comedy webseries that focuses on 20-somethings in Los Angeles. When they’re not busy navigating “the scene” or jumpstarting their careers, these women do what the young, gifted and bored do best: shoot the shit. The episodes will showcase the friendship and witty banter of a few women that happen to like women. Word to the Bechdel Test.

Per the usual, you may subscribe to the youtube channel which seems foreign and scary but it’s not, I promise. I did a horrible job of putting make-up on my girlfriend the other day AKA queered a youtube tag. These are the kinds of things you are missing by not being subscribed. We are doing important work. You should also like us on facebook because that is how our society shows approval and follow us on Tumblr because that’s how gays show their approval. As always, we appreciate the support and/or pity. Thank you.

Brittani Nichols is a Los Angeles based comedy person. When she's not tweeting about white people or watching television, she's probably eating pizza. Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.

Brittani has written 328 articles for us.


  1. I wish there were so many more of these so I could procrastinate by watching Brittani and Hannah interact forever…

  2. omfg this is so damn good.

    When Brittani retracts in horror from Hannah is my favorite. DYING. HILARIOUS.

  3. “This is a dull flame of friendship. With big boundaries and lots of pillows in between.”

  4. oh god i just realised that i probably should be toning down the cuddly with my bffs, that bed wrestling thing we did yesterday could be misinterpreted quite easily i suppose

    oh god oh god oh god the wrongness oh GOD noo

  5. This episode was my life. Because if you’re gay at boarding school, then you and your out best friend must be dating, simultaneously making it look like you’re getting some and making sure that you’ll be, in reality, forever alone.

  6. “There’s only one way to settle this… A Gentlewoman’s Agreement.

    My day has just been made, y’all.

  7. When I was a senior in college, and still unaware of my own homosexuality, my mother came to visit me. After spending a morning hanging out with me and my friends having brunch (during which there was much affection and cuddling), my mom pulled me aside and asked, “Tessa, are all of your friends lesbians?” I was surprised, laughed, and said, “No mom, of course not. We’re just all really close.”

    Turns out three of us were homos. Woops.

  8. I just, this shit just keeps getting better and better, which is quite an accomplishment since it was magical and hilarious from the beginning. Also, thank you for straight bait and DTS, I don’t know how I’ve lived 7 years as a queer without those in my vocabulary.

  9. this was so funny! dts… dull flame of friendship… so many things I want to quote. I can’t wait for another indeterminate amount of time to pass for the next ep to come out!

  10. Also, “something about butter, something about cheese” , “Huzzah”. . . I snort-laughed out loud multiple times in a crowd. Thanks.

  11. Omigod, this was so hilarious. I started laughing when Croce appeared, but I didn’t stop laughing. Because all the jokes were funny.

  12. I was 99% sure I was the only one who chose friends based on how their physical similarities to Hannah Hart. I’m not sure if I should be happy or sad that there are others like me.

  13. Can someone please tell me what song the opening chords are from???! I’ve been trying to figure it out for too long now.

    • Technically it’s “Crave You” by Flight Facilities but the version we use is from a mixtape and is by an artist called Xtra Medium and his version is called “Hardly Wait.”

  14. “Offensive! I don’t think, I know!” Loved it! Also Cool Beer is my newest pick up line and I wonder if in LA you really have to shoo Croce away from girls you like lol.

        • No no I’ve seen you in action you are hardly aggressive, but I do think you can feel the room swoon and fall silent when you enter.

          and Brittani, I dunno if I told you, but I wanna be you when I grow up.

  15. Lesson of the day: do not watch hilarious autostraddle vids while on the treadmill at the gym. You get really weird looks.
    But so worth it!!

  16. I lost it at:

    “This is a dull flame of friendship, with big boundaries and lots of pillows in between.”

  17. this is the best one and omg they’re all so funny. i wish it was a 30 min show so i could just sit here and lol and feel clever.

  18. This shit is hilarious. And I’m not just saying that because I have this weird loyalty for anything Autostraddle related, but.


    Most of all, I feel as if my vocabulary and pick-up slang has exponentially increased as a direct result of watching Words with Girls.

    And for that, I thank you!

  19. Lez get real, I have at least three friends I can think of offhand who go after the same girls I do.

    Sometimes I’m the one who tends to get the girl, sometimes I’m the one who doesn’t, most of the time no one does, and it’s always just kinda weird and I feel really bad either way?

  20. I have to admit, I absolutely hate watching things on the internet. One of my least favorite activites, but, I give that up for Autostraddle, and I don’t regret it. Just watched the series as a way to procrastinate from sleeping, and this was hilarious!
