Courtney asks Quentin if he'd like to have lunch with her before they have to launch into their make-out session. Quentin's busy, unfortunately, and stalks off with Hunter in tow. Courtney confusedly waves goodbye. Poor Courtney. All braids, no attention.
In the producer's office, some terrifying, bad-hair-having, bug-eyed woman is spouting off about how the network might think it's too soon for "Stone" to kiss "Becky's" cousin because the testing's not back yet and they're not sure the audience will like Courtney. Rob exchanges a brief glance with Hope and -- oh Lord! I think Hope's actually got cleavage! I mean, she's wearing this awesome low-cut top and a little choker and her hair looks great -- what happened between last week and this week? Is Hope having sex? Is Hope hoping to have sex? Last week she was all "big-shirt-wearing, pimple-sporting, no-intercourse-happening" Hope and now, suddenly, she has breasts and an attitude! Damn! Note to self: Locate knee-high velvet high-heeled boots and blue leather mini-skirt. IMMEDIATELY.
Okay, back to recap-land. Hope gets a bit pissy and says, "Great. So we'll have a bunch of pretty kids standing around their lockers with nothing to talk about." And then she crosses her arms, thereby accentuating her cleavage. And her point, I guess. Rob kisses major network ass by promising to "think about it," and the scary bad-hair googly-eyed woman says that the network is really excited, but also really nervous. On that note, she hauls her dumb ass out of the office, but only after kissing both Rob and Hope on the cheek, a la L.A. Story. Hope fakely smiles at her as she exits, and as soon as the woman's gone she says, "I hate that. She tells us we don't know how to run our show and then I have to kiss her. We're colleagues, not Italians." BWA HA HA. And HA.
Hunter enters, all cheery-faced. Rob and Hope feign excitement at Hunter's appearance. Hunter sits down and tells them that Quentin will be arriving at any second. Rob and Hope are none too pleased. But you'd never know it from their false enthusiasm.
Quentin is tooling around on a studio golf cart with Danny DeVito in his lap as DTSI jogs along beside him, begging for cash. Dude. Have some dignity. At least get INTO the damn cart before you ask for money. Quentin wants to know why DTSI hasn't asked Johnny for the cash he needs. DTSI tells Quentin that Johnny's being a jerk (shocker) and that he swears he'll pay Quentin back. Quentin suggests that next time he asks DTSI to take Danny DeVito for a walk, he'll take time off from kissing Johnny's ass and do it. DTSI tells Quentin that he's "got it ALL over Johnny." Quentin screeches the cart to a halt and looks at DTSI. "Let me ask you something," says Quentin. "Do you think my fans will hate me if 'Stone' kisses 'Laura'?" DTSI says, "Whoa. You're kidding, right? Dude, Stone is supposed to be some, like, bad-ass. And he's only kissed one chick for, like, the past two years. Plus, Johnny has a thing for Courtney, man. I mean, when he finds out you're kissing her, he's gonna freak!" Quentin succinctly responds, "Cool." and drives off. DTSI calls after him, asking if Quentin will lend him the "greenery," but Quentin tells him that he doesn't lend money to friends. Well, seeing as he's probably not really DTSI's friend, I think this is a false statement, but, you know, whatever.
