Later, Mike, Emmett, and Ted walk and talk about Brian's possible departure. Emmett asks whether they think Brian was serious. Mike replies that it's probably Brian overreacting to a compliment from some New York bigwig. Emmett notes that Brian did send his résumé, and Ted snorts that it's just going to end up at the bottom of some pile: "Mine always do." Poor Eeyore. Mike climbs on that bandwagon: "There's probably a thousand other guys clamoring for the same job." Ted nods, "He's never going to hear from them again." Gee, I guess a friend who's doing way better than you are doesn't need your confidence or faith in his abilities. Working for an ad agency in New York, isn't like, the ultimate career move for Brian, or anything. Thanks, guys. Ted's cell phone rings. It's Melanie. Ted basically asks her to hire Blake. MM gasps, "God, you are so in luck. One of our assistants just quit this morning. Blake could start right away!" Ted: "Really?" MM: "Of course not. What do you think, jobs are just falling off trees?" Ha! Ted frowns, "No need to get cunty, I just thought I'd ask!" Melanie backs off and says that Blake is a nice guy, and he did help Vic out, so she agrees to take him on as a temp for a couple of weeks, and then maybe they could hire him, or at the very least act as a referral. Ted thanks her, and adds, "And, uh, Mel? You're not really -- you know." Melanie grins, "I know. You are." I like her soo much better when she gets to leave the house.
Emmett walks down the alley behind Debbie's place. Vic's taking out the trash. Emmett offers him the box he's carrying, saying that it's a pecan pie. Emmett explains, "Well, whenever my mother used to visit someone, she always brought along a pecan pie.
