Mitch walks into Laura the Project Engineer's office and says that he needs to talk. About the suitcase. Same clothes. Mitch says that he can't accept it because it sends a message and that she's "attractive...and stuff." Laura says that they wouldn't be having this discussion if she were an attractive guy. He says they would if she were an attractive gay guy. "Confession," she says. Same circling around Mitch. Then Laura says that she does look forward to their meetings and she did pick out the suitcase because she knew that he'd like it but she doesn't want to have an affair. This is all done Pacino-style with a "Do I look forward to our meetings? Yes." Am I going to vomit? Yes. Is this scene completely necessary? Of course not. He says he never said she wanted an affair. She says he implied it. He says he doesn't know what he's saying. She tells him to keep the suitcase. Besides, it's monogrammed. He thanks her for the gift. He pulls into his garage and gets out of the car. He takes thirty seconds to decide to put the suitcase into the trunk. It took me five seconds to tell you that. It took him thirty. Help me.
Brotherly Love plot, fa-la-la. Kenny and Cam get into a fist-fight/headlock thing about who gets the next customer. Much yelling and wailing. Trees are knocked over. Christmas Tree Boss gets into a tangle in a moment of "hell"arious antics not seen since the passing of the delicate screwball comedy Moonlighting. Dear Editors of Get Real: You are making me nauseous. Find a camera angle. Stick with it. Don't keep cutting to extreme close-ups. I can't tell what the hell is going on. And you with the sound? I can tell when the shot didn't work so you just voice-over their line on the back of their heads. Their mouths aren't moving in sync. I can see this because I have EYES. So do others. Please respect our ability to watch moving pictures on a screen and decipher their cryptic pixels and translate them into what you are passing off as a story. Thanks. Love...Oh, forget it. You don't deserve my letter.
