We fly over Boston again, some more. Finally, we land at the theater. Elaine, dressed in her suit again, takes a beat when she sees the "callback" sheet posted, then walks toward it like a bride toward her groom. Yeah, in professional stage shows, they do that. -- post callback sheets. They don't call. I saw it in Staying Alive! Ooh, look, another reference to a movie! Lookit me go! Lookit me go! Elaine gets close to the callback list and peers at it; then her face falls. She turns, and bumps smack into one of the casting dudes. He's all, don't I know you? Yeah, she auditioned earlier. He says she was good. She laughs a bitter little laugh, like a Hershey's Special Dark Miniature, but not as tasty. Not good enough to make the cut, she says. No, she really is good. Really! It's just that she didn't have a résumé, or any professional experience. Elaine goes off on the guy: "Oh, so you have to have experience to get experience? This was an open audition. How many people came in with résumés? You saw what I could do. Isn't that the point? Otherwise, people could just fax in their tryouts." The guy asks, what is she, a lawyer or something? Hee. No. And would she like to have dinner? She smiles and poses in a very "yes" stance.
Richard's on the stand. Liza speaks to him softly and seductively. We already saw a snippet of this scene in the commercials: she asks him if he's falling in love with her. He says he is. But in this context, in his father's trial, she's making a point that Richard, like his dad, is "governed by [his] dumbstick," and would do the same thing his dad did. Which is, canning a girl he was falling for because he was already married. Even though Richard is not married. Whatever.
Back at the office, Liza and Richard get off the elevators. They're arguing. He was "embarrassed" by her courtroom antics. She says they're trying to make Fish Sr. look like the victim, if they can, and to prove a genetic predisposition to becoming obsessed. Oh, for fuck's sake. Fish Sr. is waiting for them in his office. Why? He got served with divorce papers. Commercials.
Liza yells at Richard that she can't be worried about feelings when she's trying to win a lawsuit. Well, Richard is worried. And he does care. What, is his dad going to die alone now, or something? Liza suggests that Richard go talk to his mom. Or, if he's too uncomfortable, she can talk to her for him. No, he stammers, he'll-he'll-he'll go talk to her.
