Light up on a SF club called the Bottom. Dennis, the Chickenshit Manager, is killing time with the sharky journalist lady because the band is late. She starts asking pointedly mean questions like, why is it that The Problem has missed 30\% of their gigs in the last four months, and are they going to fire you once they get major label deals? Are you sure? You seem a little defensive. Dennis quavers himself into a lather and finally Jane and Yawn walk in. Yawn locks eyes with the journalist lady, coldly says, "Erica," and they have a moment. Of course, they've met before. And, you know, done it. Erica wrote a review of another band Yawn was in "a few years back. Didn't she mention it? How unlike her." Why are chicks attracted to Yawn and his nasty disposition? Oh right -- some people are fucked up and like to hang out with nasty people who have bad personalities and bad hair and other bad habits. My bad.
Jane is saying the kind of things you never read about bands because it's so trite. "We just write about whatever makes us mad or think is funny and put it to noise we like to make...." Yawn says it's a little more involved than that, but that he doesn't want to go into it. Duh. Duh infinity. Band interviews are so boring, usually. Erica asks who their influences are and Yawn harshly says, "Bands that I like." Oh, someone slap him. Dennis starts trembling in triple-time and goes out for some air. Good move, "manager."
Outside, Dennis sees the van and freaks out over a scratch on the side. Then he sees the coffin inside. Then he sees the decayed corpse inside the coffin and gasps.
The ghost pilot is urging Scotty (again, some more) to do something because the plane is on autopilot again, and will crash some more if Scotty doesn't do something. The "tension" is so "thick" I could "cut it" with a Popsicle stick. Scotty says that he was humiliated earlier, and keeps talking to the ghost pilot until the lady across the aisle stares. Scotty fakes Tourette's to throw her off the trail. Yeah, that would work. No, I mean it. No, I'm really being sarcastic. Oh, I can't even tell anymore. Ghost pilot says that Scotty can cut an electrical cable in the galley that'll trip off the autopilot thingy. Scotty grabs the airplane phone to call the band; he has to tell them something important first. Is it, "This show was a bad idea"? No, that's the call I have to make before I die or this recap ends, whichever comes first. Please, let me die.
