Ashley goes to Chuck's office. Now, I really don't listen to much in this scene because just over Ashley's left shoulder is a doll. I think it's Chucky, from Child's Play. But here are all of the layers. This Chucky doll actually looks like Chuck, the agent from Gersh. So then I'm wondering if Chuck inspired the doll or if someone's being mean to Chuck. Then I notice that the doll really looks more like a sex doll with that strange open mouth with latex and shit. So, is it a Chucky blow-up doll that's been made in Chuck's image? Do you see the things keeping me from sleeping at night? Chuck tells Ashley that he can probably get Ashley an audition for this role (wait, what? Why did Ashley have to pay for an acting class if he didn't even have an audition yet?), but Chuck doesn't want to deliver Ashley if Ashley can't make the five-week shooting schedule. This is such bullshit. He tells Ashley to choose between the band and auditioning for a part. Auditioning for an "edgy, independent movie," which means that Ashley might get seen at the Idaho Frontier Independent Film Festival and Comedy Showcase. Chuck says that if Ashley goes in there and auditions today, he'll get them "all excited." Chuck is a fucking liar, Ashley. If they really wanted you, they'd find a way to have you, and Chuck would lie his ass off to those guys to get you in there. Ashley makes a fake "moan of exasperation," as the closed-captioning decides to call it. Chuck has a DVD on display on his desk, where a picture of a loved one should go. Poor Chuck. Ashley tells us that O-Town is his life, but that acting is something he always wanted to do. He says he doesn't know how he's going to choose.

Flashback of Ashley screaming that stupid "Angel Wings" line.
Flashback of Ashley making excuses to Trevor.
Flashback of thirty-two people applauding Ashley after his scene.
Cut to Ashley smiling, remembering how great it is to act in a crap-ass scene in a basement. Why not show a flashback of the crowd at the Britney concert? Ashley sighs a few times as we go to commercial.
I don't know if it's possible, but if you can watch Making the Band in Houston, the local commercial programming here is HY-sterical. This commercial for the King Fish Market alone is worth the price of the airplane ticket. Nobody wants to advertise during the O-No Half-hour.
Cut to O-Town, already in progress. Someone is telling Ashley that he has to leave Hollywood and go back to his job. I love how everyone pretends that Ashley doesn't have an entire crew with him. Silent Mike says that they'll all discuss it as a group when Ashley gets back. Ashley gives a tearful sigh from the comfort of his hotel room.
