Lynette is at work, pitching a poster covered in running panthers for some company called "Hinterland," and babbling that they "integrated the corporate logo into the jungle background, creating not only an ad for the clothing, but for the company itself." She smiles proudly at the assembled group of suits, and Ed (remember, he's the guy who hired Lynette) says, "I don't get it." Lynette, clearly thrown, asks Ed to clarify what it is that he's not getting, and he tells her, "The whole idea just kind of makes my head hurt." While Ed lets this drop, Bossy Boobs is sitting next to him, smiling to herself. Ed asks if he's alone on this, and Bossy agrees with him that Lynette's pitch "stinks." Ed tells everyone that it's "back to the drawing board" and then takes off, mentioning his "tickets to a game." On his way out, Ed mutters to Bossy that she has to do whatever she has to do to keep the campaign afloat.
As soon as Ed leaves, Bossy announces that it's going to be another late night, and then sarcastically adds, "Nice work, everybody, thank you." Lynette, massaging her neck: "Can you can the attitude, Nina?" Bossy: "I'm sorry, what did you just say?" For some reason, all the other people in the meeting -- Lynette's team, I guess -- stand up, so now everyone's standing there, looking awkward, as Lynette says: "You're being rude. And it's totally out of line. You know how hard we worked on this...I think I speak for everyone here when I say we are sick and tired of your abuse. Frankly, you owe us an apology." Nina, in a manipulatively semi-sincere way, asks everyone, "Is this true? I mean I would be mortified if I thought I'd hurt any of you. If anybody feels like I owe them an apology, please...speak up." Nina sits down, and abruptly, the rest of the group sits down with her. One by one, she directly turns to the people at the table, but no one speaks up. Bossy: "Gee, Lynette. I guess you were mistaken." Bossy stands to go, and once again the entire group stands with her. Bossy: "All right, let's recap, shall we? Stinky pitch, working late, no apologies." Once Bossy leaves, Lynette looks at her team with disappointed amazement. "What happened to standing up for ourselves?" she asks them. Just then, Receptionist Stu walks in with a basket of "hot muffins," which...I don't get. Did he just whip them up in the company kitchen? Also, I guess he's fully recovered from the tasering incident? Huh. Lynette: "No, Stu. These people don't deserve muffins." Lynette's team all hangs their heads in shame and also muffin disappointment.
