After commercial, we learn that Rob's suffering from a severe case of writer's block. Kevin, whose job pretty much consists of running around like an idiot and trying to get actors to the set on time, steps up and suggests a Vertigo-inspired storyline involving Kim. He excitedly tells Rob the entire Vertigo plot as Rob looks decidedly disinterested. "You could do the same thing with Kim and Lynne on Grosse Pointe." "Yeah, yeah," Rob snidely remarks. "Maybe that worked in the fifties. Go grab me a turkey burger, will ya?" As Kev dejectedly walks away, Rob starts furiously typing.
And what do you think happens next? If you guessed, "Oh, I don't know, Brad and Lynne have a scene where Brad tries to get Lynne to look just like Kim and she puts on this red wig and they make out and Kevin sees the scene and gets really pissed at Rob for using his idea and then taking credit for it," well, then you'd be right on the money.
After the scene's over, Clueless is totally pissed that he's still kissing Marcy after all these years. He'd thought that with Kim dying and all, he'd get a chance to lock lips with someone else for a change. "Come on, man!" Johnny attacks Rob. "Can't you come up with something new?" "This storyline is in fact inspired by one of my all-time favorite movies: Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo." Johnny, whose film-watching repertoire includes the entire Rambo series and anything with lots of gratuitous nudity, doesn't know what the hell he's talking about, and storms off. Kev, who's been standing nearby, just looks at Rob in disbelief. "Huh," says Rob. "It's no wonder Hitch called 'em sheep. Hey Kev, grab me a cappuccino, will ya?" It would appear that besides running around like an idiot and actor-wrangling, a major part of Kevin's job is to keep food and beverages constantly streaming into Rob's mouth. Kevin runs into Dave on the way to the cappuccino and says, "I can't believe Rob had the audacity to take credit for my Vertigo idea." "Good Lord, dude," says Dave. "Writers are like bloodsuckers." Then he walks away as Kev says, "Right on. And I just gave a pint." The hell? Dave says "Good Lord"? Since when the hell would he say something like that? Maybe this isn't really Dave at all. Maybe it's a pod person, here to infiltrate the human race with its alien seed. Maybe I should stop drinking all this Coke, I think it's making me crazy.
