Back from commercial, we are preparing to go live and Dana asks Natalie about Dan and Natalie says, "Don't worry about it, he'll be fine." They go live. Dan and Casey intro the draft, and Dan explains that teams have fifteen minutes to make their decisions and that "Cleveland's on the clock" with the first selection, and they throw to their correspondent. In the control room, Dave instructs someone to give him the "411" about something. "We are under way!" says Dana. "We are under way, baby!" says Jeremy, all the while making this "hey, guys? Hey?" face, and it cracked me up because Jeremy's right: he does come off as a complete dork when he says ""baby. Everybody looks at him, which is saying something, since his spot is at the back of the control room, so the Tertiary Characters have to make the effort to actually turn their heads to give him the "whatchoo talkin' 'bout" looks. Dana tries to console him. Over in the corner, Kim and Elliot are discussing how strange it is that teams have known for months which player they're going to take, but they still use the entire fifteen minutes to make the announcement. Dana nosily listens in. "Fifteen minutes of sitting around waiting," says Kim. "Fifteen minutes where we have no responsibilities at all," says Elliot, and it really kind of sounded like these two wanted to sneak off and jump each other, but Dana butts in and tells them that if they're considering sneaking off to get a danish, that she wants cinnamon. Everyone of course starts barking our their danish orders. Elliot asks Kim, "Did you get all that?" "No, but I don't really care that much," she says, which was pretty funny. I feel compelled to point out that Will ordered a prune danish. I also feel compelled to point out that the infamous game of Celebrities two weeks ago was held up because Will was in the bathroom. You may draw your own conclusions.
Then Dana lashes out at everyone since she's the only one wearing one of her t-shirts. "In fact, I see a total of, hmmm, none!" like she totally messed up counting her own t-shirt. Jeremy says he's saving his for a special occasion like "Labour Day," which was pretty funny. Then he nitpickingly points out that the t-shirts say "I survived draft day," which they haven't yet done. I guess he's got a point. "He's got a point," says Dave, who is of course told to shut up by Dana, which she always does when a TC gets uppity. Jeremy gets up and says he has to stretch his legs. He leaves, and Natalies starts bitching about why he has to say that, since she knows he's leaving to call his new girlfriend. She says "I'm just sayin'" again. As for me, I would prefer to hear someone say "I'm going to stretch my legs" instead of "I'm going to go call my porn star girlfriend." "He calls her four times a day," Natalie whines, and complains that Jeremy never called her four times a day. Dana reasonably points out that they work together, but doesn't say that calling that often deserves a smack in the head, if not a restraining order. Natalie says she's totally unencumbered and that any man who wanted to could have her right now. Will turns around, and Dana tells him to sit down, but Will probably just needs to run to the toilet.
