They go to the workroom and the set-up is totally different and they have their own private work spaces now. While they're together for lunch, Austin asks Mondo if he likes what he got from Mood. He doesn't. He's being really cold right now. He says he's happy that he can close his door now. RUDE. Austin says, very generously if you ask me -- you did, right?, that he wants Mondo's input on his work. He also says that he understands if Mondo needs space. He's not stupid though, he acknowledges in an interview that Mondo really rebuffs a lot of his shows of friendship.
They get to work. Michael is using a safari look. He says that his customer is going on a crusade with Indiana Jones. OK. Mondo is being the biggest fucking baby. He tells Michael that he feels dead inside and is feeling no inspiration whatsoever. Then, he closes his door. Michael tells Austin about an earlier exchange he had with Mondo and Austin points out that they are all under stress, not just whiny boohiney Mondo. Michael even has kids -- at least that's what he says. I thought he just had one. Austin reminds us that his freaking mother is homeless right now and it's selfish for Mondo to think he's the only person with hardships.
Georgina pays them all a visit in the workroom! She's there to give them a pep talk and Mondo says that he's tired of people expecting things from him and he has been moping all day and hasn't gotten any work done at all. Georgina says that's fine. Everybody has their freak out time. She used to freak out before her shows and has since learned to stay calm. That, of course, made her nervous because she wondered if her creativity needed the freak out in order to thrive. She's essentially giving a "you live, you learn" lesson for Hamlet over here. Mondo declares it a free day for himself and doesn't do any work at all. Later, they go out for dinner and he's SUCH a drag. He leaves before dessert and it's just generally really uncomfortable. Michael points out that Mondo does his best work when he's in that sort of funk.
