The next morning, Baze sits inside the sound booth doing his best South Park knock-off voice to mock Cate using one of the million dolls sitting on the desk. Cate comes in, all business, still agog that he's going through with this. Baze says Trina's agreed to let him promote his bar on-air. Since she's scratching his back, he'll be happy to scratch hers. Yes, that was clumsy innuendo. Ryan enters the room, and the show begins. Ryan gives a palpably lackluster introduction (though "the mystery man in the minivan" does have a certain ring to it) as Baze breaks in to pimp his bar. As soon as Baze opens up his mouth, you can tell this man thinks he's the second coming of Howard Stern. This could be very bad. Hopefully there are ambiguously impaired midget porn stars to fill the dead air.
Meanwhile, Bug has arrived to take Lux to school. She tries to lighten the mood by talking about Baze's one-day radio gig, but Bug gets down to the nitty gritty, asking what happened with Jones. Lux wanly says he agreed to drop the charges. So wanly, in fact, that Bug knows there's a "but." She tells him about the motorcycle hand-over, and Bug immediately says "Screw that!" Lux spouts off the same bullshit Jones fed her about him having to choose between his bike and their relationship. Bug looks a little broken at the prospect of having to give up his most valuable possession, then snarks that Jones probably doesn't even know how to ride. He and Lux kiss at their freedom. I have seven words for you, my friend -- "Wait six months. Steal that shit back." And maybe two more: "Fuck Jones."
Back at the station, Ryan reluctantly carries on his little biographical interview of Baze's life up to now. Baze throws in as many barbs at Cate as he can before she cuts in. Which, to be fair, is probably a wise move. Baze saying what a shrew she is probably won't up her likability pie. She tries to remind everyone that he ambushed her on air with news that she had a 16-year-old daughter out in the parking lot. Baze counters that Cate is a "human ambush" and she ambushes "on autopilot like an ambush ninja." He tries to get an amen from Ryan, who stays miserably mum. All Cate can respond, and rightly, is, "That doesn't even make sense!" But Baze's riff won't be stopped. On the upside, the phone lines are ringing off the hook.
