Elsewhere in the hotel, Dina-saur has planned a fun day for the Cody to make her for him being away from home. They drive down The Strip and check out the sights. Cody points out New York, New York first. Then they head for lunch with magician and (I'm guessing) face lift enthusiast Lance Burton. He does some tricks that impress the LoHos. Then he tells Cody he has a great marquee name. Oh, Lance, don't you know that Dina-saur only whores out her female children.
Back at the studio, Ali and her vocal Sue couch goof around, much to the chagrin of the suits. They put her back to work, and Ali immediately biffs the first verse. Eman tries to get her to be a professional and sing through; even Sue tells her to cut the crap, grousing in an interview about Ali's perfectionism. Ali does some riffs for practice, and the producers say they were good, but Ali's beyond frustrated with her performance. She takes off her headphones and goes into meltdown mode. Commercials.
Back in Vegas, while everyone else lounges around by the pool, Ali slaves away in the studio. She sings the same three notes over and over again. It's as compelling as it sounds. She continues to tear herself down, but Eman gives her the sage advice not to judge herself -- that's his job. While she freaks out in the booth, Eman explains her thought processes with the Maloofs. Then he slips a $100 bill in his pocket when he adds something about the greatest singers being the hardest working ones.
Dina-saur and Cody are back at the hotel. He's holding a soccer ball. (Take a shot.) He complains that there isn't any soccer in Vegas. Instead, he gets his kicks by playing arcade games with Dina-saur. Then they head to the wax museum, where Cody putts by Tiger Woods and shoots hoops with Michael Jordan. Dina-saur VOs that Cody deserved some solo time for making this sacrifice for Ali. They also check out Lance Burton's wax figure. That little scamp Cody messes up wax Lance's cards, then runs away. Dina-saur doesn't notice, though, because she's already halfway out the door. Mommy needs vodka! Finally, they visit the Liberace museum and don many glittering accessories. They round out the day by slapping a "Got bling?" bumper sticker on their Escalade. Which I'm the folks at the rental place will appreciate.
Back in the Ninth Circle, Eman notices Ali's flagging energy. He reiterates his spiel about the best singers being the hardest working, adding that they're also the singers that work the longest hours. (Hint, hint.) Ali responds to this by asking when she can leave. In the lounge, Sue tells Ali to be more confident with her singing because her insecurities are showing in the song. She tries to get Ali to embrace the power of positive thinking.
