When Bojack finds himself in the hallucination of the diner filled with Mr Peanutbutters at every table, this is a reference to 'Being John Malkovich', when inside John Malkovich's head, there is a diner filled with John Malkoviches. Similarly as to the film, where every Malkovich speaks to eachother saying only "Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich", the Mr Peanutbutters say only "Mr Peanutbutter, Mr Peanutbutters, Mr Peanutbutter" See more »

BoJack Horseman: My question is for Diane. Look, I'm sorry about all the stuff I said about you earlier. We can publish the book you wrote. You're obviously a better writer than I am. And... And I don't... actually even care what the world thinks about me anymore. I just hated reading that book because I hated feeling like that's how *you* saw me. Because I guess you know me better than anybody, if you think that.
BoJack Horseman: Um, I-I guess my question is do you... do you think it's too late for me?
Diane Nguyen: What...

Morality, Horses and an Exploration of Self-Worth - I Can't Believe it's not Equus!
26 August 2016 | by greypacmanSee all my reviews

Episode 11 of BoJack Horseman's first season is a drug induced retrospective which depicts a BoJack weighed down by guilt and denial. Despite this, the writing remains snappy, the jokes land and character arcs beyond BoJack's progress meaningfully.

Loved by fans and critics alike, my expectations for Downer Ending were, admittedly, high. That said, the 30 minute escapade moved me to tears and delivered stunning visuals. I, like BoJack, was left clambering for more when the screen faded to black. Furthermore, I struggled to think about anything else for the day. All I wanted to do was discuss Downer Ending and the questions it raised regarding life's complexity and frightful, unwavering, progression. I cannot recommend watching it more highly.

However, you may want to bookend the episode with some fresh air or a light jog. Today we're dealing with nihilism and a truck load of drugs.
