WATCH: Eddie Huang Finds Inspiration with 19-Year-Old Muslim Activists in Dearborn, MI

Dearborn, MI might be the mellowest installment of Fresh Off the Boat: Detroit, but Eddie Huang’s quiet awe at the eloquence with which a 19-year-old “Iraqi Jedi” explains misconceptions surrounding his religion is among Season 2’s most heartening moments yet.

Before he sits down with Lebanese American Heritage Club president Suehaila Amen and a few young activists, Eddie grabs Iraqui pastries and coffee at a local cafe, and peeps “Middle-Eastern Costco” (a.k.a. “Wild Wednesdays” at a supermarket where prices get slashed and families swarm to feed their communities in bulk).

Skip to 6:33 for Eddie’s conversation with one wise teenage boy, dubbed “the Sabermetrics of the Quran.”
