Claudia's conductor says the ad agency needs the track in an hour and hands out the sheet music. Todd offers to rub Claudia's hands to warm them up, because he knows she gets nervous. Claudia says she's okay. Todd reminds her that a beginner doesn't have to set the tempo, or control the dynamics, or give the cues. Claudia tells him she knows what first chair does, and asks if he's upset because it would be understandable. Todd says he was "bummed" earlier, but he realized he got beat by Claudia Salinger, which happened "every week in junior high." Claudia protests, "Not every week," but then the conductor wants to begin so they don headphones. The conductor checks with Claudia to make sure she's ready and they begin. As they are playing, Claudia looks at Todd and then screws up. This happens three times. Also there is a shot of a girl playing the flute who looks like Alyson Hannigan and I wonder if that is an American Pie reference for Todd. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it. After the third screw-up, Claudia says meekly, "I'm sorry." I really, really, really hope she's not messing up on purpose to save her boyfriend's fragile ego.
Bailey is sitting at his desk, surrounded by books like The Road Less Traveled. Charlie walks in and asks what he's doing, and Bailey says he's taking an aptitude test to find out what he's good at. Charlie asks what the results were, and Bailey says it told him to be a restaurant manager. Charlie laughs and then apologizes for laughing. Bailey asks what Charlie is doing there, and Charlie tells him about the big order they landed, and explains how he has to open a new factory to handle it, but he doesn't have time to do all that while running the current factory, so he needs help. Bailey figures out that Charlie means he wants Bailey to help, and he says no. Charlie says it would only be for a few months. Bailey says he wasted so much time running the restaurant and he doesn't want to waste any more. Charlie says that he's only twenty-one, and he has a lot of time, and he really needs his help. Bailey says he's scared that he's never going to find that thing he's supposed to do, and that "every second" he spends doing something that's wrong, he's that much further away from finding what's right. Hey, how does he know that running a furniture factory isn't what's right, huh?
