Philbert's House is the main location on the in-universe WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com original series Philbert. It is first seen in The Light Bulb Scene, in Season 5.

Physical Appearance[]

It exactly mirrors BoJack's House, although the similarities are just a coincidence according to Flip McVicker.

Mr. Peanutbutter notices the familiar-looking set and mentions that it looks just like David Boreanaz's house. Flip then states that the set designer took a tour there, meaning the set was technically modeled after BoJack's house.

Background[]

Season 5[]

In The Light Bulb Scene, BoJack is on set with Princess Carolyn for his first day of shooting Philbert for WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com. Flip yells cut after a red dye pack in BoJack's coat doesn't fire after Philbert gets shot.

During this time, BoJack begins to question Princess Carolyn about his character and the show, and why a website called WhatTimeIsItRightNow would even exist when people have clocks on their computers.

Princess Carolyn assures him that his questions will be answered, but also asks him if it would kill him to smile. BoJack sarcastically smiles, and the red dye pack explodes in his coat.

BoJack finishes the scene from earlier, but afterward, he tries to express concern to Flip about his character. Just then, Mr. Peanutbutter interrupts them. BoJack then asks why the set looks like his house. Flip tells him he's never been to his house—it's supposed to represent how John Philbert feels: spare and lonely.

Mr. Peanutbutter says it looks like David Boreanaz's house, and Flip reveals their set designer went on a tour there once. Mr. Peanutbutter then tells BoJack he's playing Julius Caesar on the stage next door for a short film. Flip leaves before BoJack can talk to him, but he says they can talk tomorrow.

S5ep12 Biscuits Braxby

BoJack and Gina's interview with Biscuits in The Stopped Show

In The Stopped Show, Princess Carolyn explains to BoJack that Gina got injured, footage of it got leaked, and some people may have the impression that he was trying to hurt Gina. She set up an interview for him and Gina with Biscuits Braxby to convince Biscuits, and everyone else, they were just doing their job as actors—nothing more, and nothing less.

BoJack arrives on set and notices Gina already sitting down. He greets her and says she looks good, but Gina blankly says the makeup covers up the bruises, and she just wants to get the interview done. BoJack tells Gina he's going to come clean about everything.

Gina angrily demands he doesn't—he assaulted her, and if there was any justice he'd be in jail, but her career is finally taking off, and she doesn't want to be known as "the girl that got strangled by BoJack Horseman."

She'll be amicable and professional towards him on set, but other than that she doesn't want anything to do with him.

Biscuits arrives and they begin the interview, where BoJack and Gina lie about the incident and even have to pretend to still be dating. After the interview, Gina angrily leaves the room.

Season 6[]

In Xerox of a Xerox, BoJack asks Princess Carolyn where they are taping the segment for his interview with Biscuits Braxby. She tells BoJack she had the old Philbert set dug up so then they can have the intimacy and vulnerability of his home and they are making it look like it's night since they are pre-taping the segment in the afternoon. BoJack then shrugs and says that makes sense.

BoJack's interview in Xerox of a Xerox

At the interview segment with Biscuits, she asks him about the story that came out about the last days of Sarah Lynn and his feelings about it. BoJack says he feels good not having to lie anymore. Biscuits goes on to ask if the allegations in the story are true. BoJack says they are. He tells Biscuits he and Sarah Lynn went on a drug bender together after he invited her. They spiraled together for a little over a month and then she overdosed.

Biscuits then says in his original statement to the police BoJack said he found Sarah Lynn at the planetarium after she called him and questions whether this was a lie. BoJack admits it was a lie. Biscuits continues on to question whether Sarah Lynn was BoJack's rock bottom, and he responds that he doesn't believe in rock bottoms. BoJack elaborates that he's had a lot of rock bottoms only to discover a rockier rock bottom underneath. BoJack then says he decided to stop waiting for something to change him and then he realized he had to make the change for himself which is why he went to rehab. He then tells Biscuits he's proud to be sober one year next month.

Biscuits asks if Sarah Lynn dying was part of his decision to go to rehab. BoJack replies that it was part of the reason. BoJack then goes on to say he has made a lot of mistakes. Biscuits then asks if he's willing to share some of the other mistakes. BoJack says he doesn't think that would be fair to the people involved all of whom he apologized to in private. Biscuits then asks if he thinks he'll stop making these mistakes and BoJack says he thinks he will. BoJack continues to say it's been a lot of work but when he looks back at the old BoJack and asks "Who is that?"

Biscuits then asks who was the old BoJack. BoJack then says he came from a broken home and he used to feel like his whole life was an acting job doing an impression of the people he saw on television which was just a projection of equally screwed up actors and writers. BoJack then says he felt like a Xerox of a Xerox of a person and now he just feels like himself.

Biscuits says it must have been difficult to see those same patterns repeat in Sarah Lynn. BoJack remarks that's why he thought her death was so scary and he didn't want to confront it because she reminded him of herself. Biscuits then asks about how he feels about Sarah Lynn's mother exploiting her daughter's death. BoJack responds it makes him sad and angry. Biscuits asks what he would say to her mother right now and BoJack says he would tell her how sorry he is.

As BoJack and Princess Carolyn walk out of the interview BoJack congratulates himself on how he did. Princess Carolyn hesitantly agrees it was good and BoJack asks if she thinks people are going to like it. Princess Carolyn says they'll find out in three hours when it airs.

Princess Carolyn then tells him he should have done the one interview and gone back to Connecticut. Princess Carolyn says she is going home to her daughter and BoJack should think about what he wants to do with the time he has before the interview aires and his whole world changes.
