It's hard to pick the best moments from Broad City, but they are usually the most quotable and GIF-able scenes. As someone who lives in New York City, watching a show set there about women in their 20s is usually unrealistic — like Hannah's massive apartment on Girls or anything about the portrayal of Brooklyn in 2 Broke Girls — but Abbi Jacobsen and Illana Glazer get it right. Sure, I don't have a secret handshake with Bed, Bath and Beyond employees, but maybe I don't shop there enough. I also need to make my roommate date a dentist who can drive a U-Haul ASAP — bonus points if he can also bake and eat an entire cake like Lincoln.
Basically, every moment on Broad City seems to match up with either my life or someone I know. From just missing a train out of the wrong station to staring down at endless flavors of fro-yo at 16 Handles to cutting the line at the ladies' room at a crowded bar, we are all Abbi, Ilana & Co. To prove that, here are 17 GIFs that accurately describe the struggles of adult life, with situations that you have probably experienced already this week. Let's face it: we're livin' la vida Broad City.
