She asks what happened. He explains that he was on a Doctors Without Borders mission and, long story short, never stick your hand outside of a helicopter to wave. So that's what happened to the right hand. As for the left, long story short, don't play with fireworks, kids. Lemon realizes he actually is too dumb to be The One. He thinks it's a discrimination thing because of the hooks, but she assures him she's an equal opportunity loser at love. He tries to encourage her not to go by stroking her face gently with his right hook. She jumps back because it's burning hot. He reminds her that he was baking... his hooks apparently? Lemon leaves grumbling about how handsome he is.
Tracy's dressing room. He calls an entourage meeting to discuss his summer film role: Garfield in Garfield 3: Feline Groovy. He enjoys the fact that shooting will be entirely green screen and only take three days, all for "one million teachers' salaries." Dot Com encourages him to take a risk so that he might snag the Oscar "O" on his EGOT necklace. He hands Tracy a script written by a rapper from the South Bronx who had a similarly rough and tumble childhood to Tracy's. Tracy agrees to look it over, but he's got a back-up in an animated film he drew about the Holocaust.
Lemon's office. Jack takes Lemon aside for advice about the rapidly deteriorating Nancy-Avery situation. She suggests he come clean, but Jack thinks that's a terrible idea. Instead, he's prepared an anti-romantic evening including a documentary about female circumcision and gluttony over Indian food. Lemon tells him not to avoid the problem and do the right thing even though it's hard. He puts the kibosh on that notion and asks her expert advice on how to keep a date devoid of sex. She starts to go off on him in a high-pitched rant, but he cuts her off to mock her and say that such an annoying timbre is the perfect antidote to foreplay. She's still screeching as he runs out.
Out in the hall, Tracy says he hated the script and couldn't relate to it. Dot Com points out several points where the script intersected with Tracy's own life. Tracy says memories of his childhood are mostly a blur, so Dot Com suggests he's repressing some stuff. As you might expect, Kenneth has a Deliverance-esque anecdote about repression. Moving on! Dot Com tells Tracy this film is a sure shot at snagging his "O," so he should reconnect with his roots. Tracy rejects that idea, saying he was just on a yacht with The Roots last week.
