This was my favourite part of the episode. The entire scene summarises every Asian parent-child interaction in the history of Asian parent-child interactions.
Pre-empt your child and chide them for something they haven’t done yet. When they do it, chide them because they were too slow. Distant, yet still caring. Always judging, in their best interests. Never quite good enough, but only because you know they could have done better. But pragmatic also.
Infuriating to live with, but hilarious to see its essence summarised in one scene on TV. Really wanted to give May a sympathetic Asian child fist-bump for that.
