Naturally, Mrs. Hornberg walks in at this very moment holding Lemon's wallet. She looks angry, then flips the switch and tells Lemon -- in front of everyone -- that she is welcome to join their lovemaking. She continues to overshare details about the Hornberger intercoursing until Lemon stops the insanity. She admits to the writers that she and Pete have been sneaking around to look for a new cast member. The writers begin moaning and groaning. Lemon makes them promise not to tell any of the actors. At which point Josh (both an actor and a writer) stands up in a huff. He declares that he doesn't need people who won't remember him because he "can have a job tomorrow... in the Air Force!" He screams, "I quit!" then moves to toss over the writers' table. Long story short, about 10 other writers have to help him out.
Downstairs, the Page strike is gaining steam, but Lenny, a.k.a. Brandon, has begun his infiltration.
Elsewhere in the plaza, Grizz and Dot-Com find Tracy to ask how his plan to connect with average Joes and Janes is going. He sarcastically says it's going great and introduces them to his "new friends: Nobody and Susan Walters-hyphen-Nobody." He says he doesn't think he'll ever get back to his roots. When, lo! He hears the percussive rhythms of bucket drummers and runs off in their direction.
Tracy joins the protest in progress, with the drummers banging their buckets, encircled by Santas rallying for "NO MORE FLAMMABLE BEARDS" and Pages agitating for overtime. Tracy is invigorated by finding his people, so he joins the strike, grabs a megaphone, and shouts, "Two, four, six, eight! Ten, twelve, fourteen, sixteen, eighteen!"
Upstairs, Lemon and Pete watch as Jenna films her country music tennis promo. Lemon heads over to break the news about Josh quitting, just hoping that Jenna won't realize his absence makes room for a new cast member. Instead, Jenna is in a huff about the light gels the production guys used for her tennis promo. She chews Lemon out for not doing her job. Lemon tries to explain that Josh quit (Jenna's response: "Who?"), but Jenna is having none of it. She asks what exactly could be keeping Lemon from attending to her each and every need. Lemon comes out with it: Jack wants a new cast member. Jenna's voice reaches frequencies only heard by dogs when she screeches, "If it is a blonde I will kill myself! Aaaaaaaaaah!" Cut to Jenna strutting in the picket line, chanting, "Jenna Maroney is great! No new cast member!" Tracy: "New what? If it's a blonde woman I'm gon' kill myself!"
