From awkward sexting to dream-dating Bradley Cooper

MOST POPULAR

Inside Amy Schumer, one of TV's funniest shows, returned last for a fourth season.

Comedy Central has released very few clips from the new episodes, but we expect to see more of Schumer's signature raunch, hilarity, and on-point feminist commentary.

In honour of the new season we've collected 10 moments in which Schumer saw inside our soul. From talk show appearances to her ongoing best friendship with Jennifer Lawrence, it's clear that she just gets us―and, frankly, knows us better than we know ourselves.

WHEN SHE WAS BAD AT SEXTING

MOST POPULAR

Sexting is hard. At best it's, er, sexyish, but at worst it's embarrassing and awkward and super cringey.

Schumer captured the trickiness of sexting in a sketch on Inside Amy Schumer and lived out our greatest fears. In the sketch, a pajama-clad Schumer is eating spaghetti out of a pot with her hands and attempting to figure out how to reply to a guy named Bobby. When he asks, "What are you wearing right now?" Schumer looks down at her cat T-shirt and responds, "My tit."

When he asks what she wants him to do, she texts, "Tell me what all of my remotes do." Yes.

WHEN SHE CALLED OUT THE KARDASHIANS

We have a love/hate relationship with the Kardashians sometimes, even though their style is on point and a Kimoji is never not appropriate.

Schumer hit on one of the major issues with the celeb family during her SNL monologue last year. "We have to be a role model for these little girls because who do they have?" she asked the audience, discussing young women's perceptions of Hollywood. "All they have, literally, is the Kardashians. She doesn't have a Malala poster in her room—trust me. And is that a great message for little girls? A whole family of women that take the faces they were born with as a light suggestion? Is that great? No."

WHEN SHE FAILED AT DIETING

During Schumer's HBO special last year she admitted that she is basically terrible at dieting–just like us! When preparing to shoot Trainwreck, Schumer said she worked with a personal trainer and it was a real challenge. "He had to explain to me, 'No, sometimes people are hungry. That's Hollywood's secret, I found out: They don't put food in their faces.'"

WHEN SHE WAS BFF WITH JENNIFER LAWRENCE

The world let out a collective (and jealous) sigh when we discovered that Schumer had become besties with Jennifer Lawrence.

The friendship started when Lawrence emailed the comedian and said, "I don't know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I'm in love with you." Within week the pair is writing a movie together, racing around on jet skis and dancing on a piano at a Billy Joel concert.

They even wanted to wear coordinating outfits to the Golden Globes after both were nominated, but sadly it didn't happen. It's okay, ladies, you're wearing matching outfits in our minds when we pretend to be hanging out with you.

WHEN SHE WAS OBSESSED WITH BRADLEY COOPER

We're all a little obsessed with Bradley Cooper, but Schumer has taken her love for the actor to a whole new level.

On SNL, Schumer joked that she thought she was engaged to Cooper, simply because she hung out with him one time at a celebrity event and he talked to her for 30 minutes. "Am I dating Bradley Cooper?" Schumer asked. "I don't know how Hollywood works, but I'm pretty sure that I'm dating Bradley Cooper."

She was so convinced that she announced their engagement during her SNL monologue. "I changed my Facebook status," she confirmed. Yeah, we're engaged to Bradley Cooper too.

WHEN SHE GAVE THE BACHELORETTE ADVICE

Although we don't always like to admit it, we're all sort of obsessed with The Bachelorette.

Schumer has no trouble keeping her love for the show a secret (and has even joked that she'd like to be the Bachelorette). Last May, Schumer was invited to dole out some advice to then-Bachelorette Kaitlyn and her suitors. In the episode, Schumer tried to teach the guys how to be funny and it did not go so well, especially with the jerk of the season, JJ. "JJ's a sweetheart," Schumer told the cameras. "He's just missing charisma and humility and a sense of humor."

WHEN SHE ATE JAKE GYLLENHAAL'S CAKE

If you are drunk and there is cake available you eat it, right? Especially if that cake belongs to Jake Gyllenhaal.

Schumer, our hero, was apparently renting Gyllenhaal's house for a while and discovered a birthday cake in the freezer, which she, of course, promptly ate.

Schumer told Stephen Colbert that although the cake was "very old" and "not edible," she consumed it over the course of her stay there. "I would get drunk and I would eat it," Schumer said, "and I would talk as if he were there and I was at the party that the cake was served at." Yes.

WHEN SHE COULDN'T ACCEPT A COMPLIMENT

Have you ever had someone tell you they love your shoes and been unable to take their words at face value? Yeah, we're not all so amazing at gracefully accepting a compliment, which Schumer parodied on Inside Amy Schumer.

All the women in the sketch refuse to take a compliment, continually replying with "No" and an explanation of why they don't deserve it. "Amy, I love your hat," one of her friends says. "Are you drunk?" Schumer replies. "I look like an Armenian man! People are trying to buy carpets from me." Lesson: Just accept the praise.

WHEN HER ARMS REGISTERED AS LEGS

MOST POPULAR

Last year Schumer appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and discussed how much she differs from other women in Hollywood.

"I don't fit in here, just straight-up body type," Schumer told DeGeneres about possibly ever moving to Los Angeles. "Like in L.A. my arms register as legs. It's like, why's that octopus on Sunset? It's not for me out here."

WHEN SHE COULDN'T FIND THE RIGHT HAIRCUT

In a sketch on Inside Amy Schumer the fictional Schumer gets cast in an animated kids' movie with Jessica Alba and Megan Fox.

Except it turns out she's playing a disgusting, vagina-showing meerkat. "Everybody is so ready to think that they've made it and they're gorgeous," Schumer told Time about the sketch. "I feel like I always think, Oh, maybe I'm really beautiful I just haven't found the right hairstyle.' And so when they're like, 'It's you, Jessica Alba, and Megan Fox,' of course I'd be like, 'Oh yeah! I could see myself running with those two.'"
