Johnny: "What is that noise?"
Jackie: "Yeah, she's brewing tea."
Melissa sits down on the floor and rolls around and tickles herself and then out of nowhere she sits up and plays/sings this beautiful verse for the song and both Johnny and Jackie's jaws drop and Jackie goes, "Yo Rain Man, where's that been?" It's pretty satisfying, altogether. Nice little setup there.
Okay, so can we name them all at this point? It's Sonyae the screamer, Nick with the mohawk, Blessing is blind, Brian is Elvis 2.0 apparently, Johnny's the generally perfect one that has really really ever really ever loved a woman, Nevin is the Leader of Men, Jackie has apparently mellowed with age because she's being super awesome, Scotty is the giant one with all the feelings, Melissa is Rain Man, Karen is... Karen's the country one, and then Amber and Jes are two separate people. Good.
HATERS & THE WACK
Nick and Jes or Amber pound their chests with feelings about the conversation they are having, which seems to be about how there Haters and there are also places that are Wack and then I think Nick is going to be talking about his goddamn childhood at some point, so that'll be terrible.
In the other room -- Scotty, Nevin and Brian -- everybody is being a Hater and it is totally Wack. Mostly because Nevin is nuts and a con artist and has clearly coasted on being a big fish for a very long time because he is straight nuts in terms of real life. He's like one of those aristocratic family secrets where they pay off the cops and families of his victims but allow him to keep killing, but instead of being a serial killer he's just this Emperor of Douche.
Duke? Duchy of Douche. No, Emperor. It's all made up in his lunatic head anyway.
Black Velvet: "What if your whole song wasn't just whining about how you deserve to be a star, and everybody should just understand that you are unique and special, and without working or trying at all you should be handed opportunities and instead we sang a song that, like, a person who respected himself would sing? Maybe at the end, as a little twist?"
Scotty: "I don't know what you mean."
Black Velvet: "Okay, maybe I'll just sing something pretty."
They sing pretty together, and the problem is solved, so then of course Nevin backtracks to them and sings random words at them, all of which the other two hate. Like at point he sings, for the Widows one would imagine, some kind of nonsense about the neon energy of LA burning you alive. They tell him to stop saying clichés and he leaderships them on how sometimes clichés are okay, and then tells us separately about how he believes in clichés as a Sometimes Food.
