Introduction

"Lovin that cali lifestyle!!" is the 10th episode of Season 4 of the Netflix original series BoJack Horseman.

Synopsis

Diane leaks damaging information on Jessica Biel, Todd's clown dentist business hits a snag, and Princess Carolyn finds hope in an unlikely place.

Plot

The episode begins with BoJack, Hollyhock, Beatrice, and Tina playing UNO in the living room. We first see this through Hollyhock’s point of view, and she appears to be dizzy. She has also lost a lot of weight, as her clothes are very loose, and she keeps scratching herself. As BoJack boasts how he's winning, Hollyhock goes to get some water, only for the glass to slip from her hands and breaks giving her a cut. BoJack offers to help her out, but she tells him to wait as he heads upstairs to the bathroom. Her dizziness gets even worse as she stumbles into the bathroom and trying to get a band-aid. Just then one of her fathers texts her to see how she's doing, and she hides the cut with her hair and sends him a reassuring selfie with the text "lovin that cali lifestyle!!" before collapsing. The episode then gives us three different stories in the span of two weeks in the same time.

Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane's Plot

With the California Governor Election coming to a close, it seems that Jessica Biel's approval ratings are higher than Woodchuck's ratings due to his lobster claws for hands. Later on, however, Woodchuck reveals that he has gotten new hands, and his new "Hands Up For Woodchuck" campaign raises his ratings higher than Jessica's. Katrina, however, believes that they could use Woodchuck's new hands against him, and a DNA look at the fingerprints reveal that his new hands used to belong to Ernest Contralto, a pedophile murder (as in a pedophile that also murders kids). This causes Woodchuck's ratings to drop even more.

Meanwhile at Girl Croosh, Diane's boss convinces her to take Jessica out for lunch and do an article on how they might be getting a female Governor soon. Diane agrees, and at lunch the two talk, with Biel mentioning how Mr. Peanutbutter would show her a magic eye poster until she saw the illusion. Then, Biel has a public meltdown over having avocado on her plate despite requesting not to have them, and Diane decides to make it her new blog post. This causes people to backlash against Biel for hating avocado, much to Katrina's dismay. Despite Woodchuck believing that it may not matter, the results next week reveal that he won the campaign. While Mr. Peanutbutter is happy that he and Diane saved the campaign, Diane is annoyed because he was responsible for the problems in the first place.

Todd and Princess Caroline's Plot

Todd is approach by a representative of Better Business Bureau by the name of Yolanda. She comes to him because his clown dentist practice is not getting great reviews due to most of the dentists not being actually licensed, and most of the children finding them frightening. However, Todd proposes that he could turn his business into an entertainment company, and makes a deal that if he could make an entertaining show for Yolanda in a week, she could make them a legitimate business. If not, he will dissolve the business and set the clowns loose into the woods, and Yolanda agrees to the deal.

Later, Todd struggles to get the clowns to practice, while Princess Caroline is struggling with life after the events from "Ruthie", and has turned to alcohol. Then, she's called back into work for a meeting with an inspiring writer, Flip McVicker, but while she is ready to shoot down his TV show premise, she changes her mind when she see's the script and that the title is "Philbert". Now determined to get the project green lit, she asks Todd to get a meeting with her with Larry Turtletov before passing out. Deciding to use it as an opportunity to practice, Todd and the clowns manage to get P.C. to her meeting with Turtletov. Turtletov suggests that she pitch the show to whattimeisit.com, but when he asks who was the actor playing Philbert, she struggled to get some names out until she blurts out Bojack's name. Turtletov agrees to have Bojack as the star, despite remembering how he ran out of the Ethan Around project, but orders P.C. to have him sign a contract to make sure he doesn't run out of town like last time.

One week later, Todd and the clowns present their show to Yolanda, but it fails to impress her, and Todd is forced to uphold his end of the deal. Meanwhile, P.C.'s new assistant Stuart reminds her about the pitch meeting to whattimeisit.com, and she realizes that she procastinated in getting Bojack to sign the contract. Despite trying to call him, Bojack hangs up as he has no time right now, and P.C. decides to forge his signature.
