On the roof of the hotel by a large swimming pool, Ella's doing her thing with Curtis. He's just finished up an interview and they've got some dead time before the next one. Ella already has Curtis squared away with his favorite drink and hopes she can offer him some free entertainment. This offer startles Curtis like he's had a bad experience before with an attractive blonde who offered to entertain him for free. Oh, the blood... The blood. Ella clarifies this is about a pitch from a hot, up-and-coming director, but Curtis isn't interested in anything that isn't coming through his agent. Ella slyly mentions she just thought it would be good for Curtis since this guy is already on a pitch and will be meeting with producers Scott Rudin and Harvey Weinstein tomorrow. These name drops catch Curtis' attention and he's now willing to meet Jonah. Perfect! Jonah's right over there! Ella walks Curtis over to Jonah AKA "the new Spike Jonze." They sit on some couches and Jonah begins his pitch awkwardly using notecards. After a rough start, Ella yanks the cards away from him. Curtis is already impatient as Ella whispers to Jonah to just tell it to Curtis like he told it to her. Jonah seems to take this direction well and starts over enthusiastically, but Curtis still isn't impressed and doesn't make an effort to hide it.
Rick rolls off of Lauren exhausted. No, no Rickroll jokes here. Lauren looks uncomfortable and asks if something's wrong with the temperature in the room or something. Rick is too wrapped up in his own douchey ecstasy. She's having a reaction like she's been drugged. She tries to stagger over to the restroom to splash water on her face but everything is all blurry. She collapses to her knees.
Rickroll is now up and getting dressed. He admits brazenly that he slipped some of that Nexus in Lauren's drink. Lauren looks utterly terrible. All sweaty and pale. Rickroll does the stand-up thing when you drug a hooker against her will and she has a bad reaction, which is: offer to call a doctor. No irony lost here that Lauren wants to be a doctor. Lauren tells him to just go. Close-up on her to really hammer home she's a mess.
