Haftarah Plethora 
In a Haftarah Plethora reprise for Va-Y'hi, Rick and Larry compare the deathbed scenes of Jacob in the Torah and David in the Haftarah. Rick notes similarities between the beginning of David’s instructions to Solomon and the words of the Shema. Larry points out the dramatic change in tone and subject, quoting Robert Alter who likens David’s charge to Solomon to the last will and testament of a dying Mafia capo. The episode opens with the return of It’s Millie Time to put us all in a good mood.
