It's time for Kathy to shoot! And it's been a few years since Suddenly, Susan, which means that her script-memorizing muscles are a bit weak. But she soldiers on and comes onto the set. Oh, the director is David Paymer! He's done a lot of work. You'd probably recognize him. As Kathy gets some makeup touched up, she asks Tiffany if she has those "things we talked about". When one of the Privileged actors asks, as he was obviously supposed to, "Things?" Kathy snaps back, "If you mean my lines on cards, I resent that." Yes, very droll. In the rehearsal, Kathy steps on someone else's lines and then looks mortified about it. When Kathy goes over to Patrick, Tom and Maggie for reassurance, Maggie says it looked fine from what she could tell. Then Patrick says that Margaret Cho is on hold.
Kathy chats with an actor, who tells her that it was a tactical error to do her own makeup and hair, because that cuts her out from the valuable hair/makeup gossip channel. Now Kathy is convinced that everyone on set hates her. Also, Kathy isn't thrilled about being on a show shot in high definition. As Kathy says, "HD is not the friend of a lady whose age has a four in front of it." She would like to be shot through a thick layer of vaseline, please. Kathy describes Cybill Shepherd on Moonlighting as having been a ghostly, amorphous figure, "and do you know why? Because there was probably a gay cameraman who loved her."
As Kathy shoots her line (which is about doves and fireworks not going well together), the punchline of "I learned that the hard way" isn't getting a laugh. But the next bit, where she calls someone "perky" and makes a fireworks gesture, is pretty funny. And we're out!
