The Key to the City is an honorary award given to acknowledge an individual or a group which has helped a city. Rebecca Bunch received the award for her efforts to expose the corporation Greater City Water's illicit activities against West Covina . It was first seen in the Season One episode "Josh is Going to Hawaii!". In real life the show "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" was given such an award by the real city council of West Covina, California for promoting the city on the show (see Notes below).

HistoryEdit

Season OneEdit

In 2016 the law firm of Whitefeather & Associates filed a class action lawsuit against Greater City Water. The claim was that the company was involved in illegal activities which affected residents of West Covina. Star attorney Rebecca Bunch was the lead in the case but despite her best efforts was unable to convince the judge her evidence was reliable. The lawsuit was dismissed but it got the attention of a metro city reporter. Thanks to some illegally obtained GCW emails he wrote a story and exposed the truth. The scandal got national attention and Rebecca was heralded as a hero. The City council and mayor of West Covina decided to award her with a Key To The City.

The mayor personally went to Whitefeather & Associates to tell Rebecca who, due to financial problems she was having, seemed unenthused by the honor. A ceremony was scheduled to be held in the park with numerous press and a large crowd in attendance. Rebecca ended up being late for the event and when she finally arrived she seemed miserable and noticeably distracted. Nevertheless, she took the stage and the mayor awarded her with the Key To The City as the photographers on hand took pictures. Rebecca was handed the microphone to give a speech but could only manage to say a few words. She then unexpectedly ran off with the key as the audience looked on confused and her friend Paula Proctor cheered her on ("Josh is Going to Hawaii!")

Season TwoEdit

The Key to the City was eventually hung up in Rebecca's office framed and located on the wall behind her desk.

A replica of the key was used for the scene in "Josh is Going to Hawaii!". It currently is on display in Aline Brosch McKenna's office.
