We cut to a diner, where Ray offers Tanya some of his sausage. It's not a euphemism; it's just the show being on-the-nose again with its humor. She declines saying as emphatically as a milquetoast woman can that she doesn't eat sausage. She also doesn't like corporate chain restaurants. He says okay, but then tells her that Home Depot has great sausage (first half of our double episode title is taken from this sort of nothing conversation for some inexplicable reason). Am I the only one who didn't know Home Depot had food at all? [Nope, this is news to me, as well. - Zach] She changes the subject (thank you, Tanya) to share with him the logo she's come up with. It's a cute little smiley face that says "Happiness Consultant." He wonders what it's about, and she says it's not just key to their plan, but it's possibly the secret to their success. She says they need women to see "Happiness" and think "great sex," which she thinks won't be hard since for most women they're one and the same. Then she shows him the budget she's proposing: wardrobe $800, webmaster $1,000, viral marketing $1,500. He thinks she's on crack, but she says it's her job: to have a vision. He thought her job was to set things up and take 10 percent. She counters with 50 percent, but he's not having it. She says that's how these things work, but she ultimately comes down to 40, then 30, and finally, "whatever." Um, Tanya, 50 was too much, but "whatever" doesn't seem like enough.
She wants to eventually be pulling down $1,000 a night. He's flattered that she thinks he's that good, but she says he could be if he works on his technique a little bit. She says it sheepishly, which she does so well, but he gets offended anyway and tells him he's fine; he's been pleasing women for decades; she's not his only screamer. Classy. She says, again sheepishly, he might need more training in foreplay. He tells her maybe it's just her, and that she's been reading too many needy magazines. He asks how he even knows she's a good pimp. She says as it so happens, she has an in. And then we're inside her flashback within the flashback. She's in her temp job at a law office, where there's a going-away party for a pretty redhead named Lenore (played by Rebecca Creskoff, one of those people I know I've seen a million times but can never place where). Tanya interrupts the party to ask Lenore if she's going to finish her work soon since not everyone's leaving tomorrow. Lenore apologizes and calls Tanya "T Brain," but then moves on without even pretending she's going to do the work. Lenore tells Tanya she's one of a kind, in that she actually gives a shit about her temp job and whether this "puke shit" gets done. Tanya says she doesn't give a hoot about SEC compliance, but you can tell she's lying.
