Kyla, who became Kat’s (Maim Bialik) business partner during the ongoing third season of the Fox sitcom, chooses to remember Leslie in his own way — and one that would almost certainly tickle Leslie.
“I get away with being like, ‘Oh, he’s just not here this week!'” she said. “I’ve heard ‘Well, y-y’ on so many occasions. Just the things that came out of his mouth. I’d be like, ‘Leslie, you can’t say that!’ But in fact, he could. Only Leslie Jordan could say certain phrases for which anyone else would be arrested or sentenced.
After all, Kyla knows Leslie wouldn’t want her wallowing in her memory, insisting, “In my head, I hear her say, ‘Bitch, you better pull yourself together.'”
