Never saw this before, but it was actually pretty good, and not just because we were treated to an old, established character like Oscar, but this one actually had more an actual plot to follow, not to mention Oscar's humorous studies, such as not being able to drive Gina and Leela away with the smell of garlic or moldy cheese, but his stinky feet did the trick; and this exchange was hilarious:

LEELA: What is that smell?
GINA: Don't look at me.

It's also amusing how Luis was able to sleep through Oscar rattling cans and blowing his horn, but it was Maria's yelling that woke him up.

I'm sure there's been stuff that was cut from its original run, but it was still fun to watch.

I thought that the Maren Morris song was supposed to be in this episode.

Where was the Maren Morris song? They somehow couldn't find a place for it?

According to this:
A song by Maren Morris is mentioned as being in this episode in both the season's press kit and the HBO GO description, but it was not shown in the episode as aired.

That doesn't explain why it wasn't shown.
