At the party, Ivy, Jessica and Bobby are huddled over a phone and reading a news alert: Rebecca Duvall told the press she left Bombshell because Derek sexually harassed her. Bobby calls Rebecca a tramp and Ivy says this must be what Derek called her about. Oh God. I hate Derek. She goes to find him.
Derek has Ronnie on his arm and he's thanking her for believing him, then asks her to intercede with the producers of The Wiz. She agrees to call them immediately. Derek goes to chat with Eileen, who is pissy about the focus being on Derek's pants again rather than the show. Derek wants Eileen to turn Michael Riedel away at the door, because him running that quote out of context (what context? I'm assuming he printed exactly what Derek said, which was three sentences) is the reason Rebecca retaliated the way she did. Eileen goes off to find Jordan.
Linda greets Shrek and says she's always admired his relationship with Julia. She's really glad they worked things out. Poor Linda, this is the most she's gotten to say in sixteen episodes and it is bullshit. Julia brings Shrek a drink and says Eileen named all the cocktails after Marilyn's movies -- this one is a Clash by Night (I figure it involves some ingredients that taste terrible together, like gin and Coke and Sambuca). Shrek asks if everyone in the company knows about her filthy Michael-banging. Julia admits they do. Shrek drains his drink and sends her off for another.
A few feet away, Tom is making the case to Sam for not saying anything to Julia and Sam is voice-of-reasoning, "She's your best friend." Eileen is freaking out on the phone to Jordan, asking "Do I still have the theater or don't I?" She hangs up and says Jordan isn't coming. Tom blames Derek ("Maybe he heard about Rebecca") and Derek blames Julia ("Maybe he read Julia's reviews"). Eileen says they need a distraction. Luckily, there's another Oscar winner in this scene! Ronnie points at Karen, who is coming up the stairs and suggests, "Why don't you use her?" That's not what I meant!
Tom introduces Karen and Ronnie, who sing "On Broadway." This part of the show is what I think of as Simon Cowell's revenge on high culture. But it's the title of the episode, so everyone finish your Some Like It Hots (which are either straight bourbon, drunk from a flask strapped to one's thigh or Micheladas with a heap of chili powder).
