“If we’re both going crazy, then we’ll go crazy together, right?” – Mike

Episode: “Trick or Treat, Freak”

This line comes in a quiet moment between Mike and Will early in the second season when the two friends discuss all the things that have happened to them recently and back into the first season and the ramifications of those things. Will is seeing visions of the Mind Flayer, and Mike is still grieving Eleven’s supposed ‘death’.

These two have been through a lot, and this line lets the audience know that despite all that they are still friends and still have each other’s back. It’s also a moment where we see just how much the events of the show have caused the boys to mature and come closer. Really they are the only two who would understand what each other is going through.

This quote also solidifies just how ‘crazy’ their lives have been since the first season began. They have gone through and seen things that no kid their age has to see but despite all the ‘craziness’ they still stick together. It is a heartwarming moment between two characters who we didn’t get to see too much interaction between in the first season because Will was AWOL for most the time.

Finally the line is also a reminder for the audience that during times of high stress sometimes it is indeed okay to go a little ‘crazy’ sometimes as long as you have someone there to get your back and go ‘crazy’ with you. In fact as the show later goes on to say maybe it’s good to go a little crazy sometimes.
