In the control room, everybody's still hanging on the tennis match. Dana's sudden persecution complex has her thinking that Fedrigatti is doing this to her personally, but Natalie assures them that "[her] Pete" will straighten things out. Then we unfortunately have to listen to Natalie talk about her annoying Pete Sampras fantasies. Luckily, though, Jeremy interrupts her as they see Fedrigatti force a fourth set. Everybody groans. Back at the desk, Dan has taken off his microphone so Casey can open up, but Casey still won't. Dana comes up to the desk to break the news about the fourth set, and Sorkin gets off a lame joke by having Dana mistakenly call the guy "Fettuccine Alfredo." Casey wants to know how Fedrigatti can do that to him, and Dana says that he's doing it to her.
In the control room, Natalie gives instructions to everybody for the hold. Dana comes back in and gives the exact same instructions. Since the letter-writing technique apparently isn't enough of a M*A*S*H rip-off, Natalie has to be Radar O'Reilly to Dana's Colonel...well, whatever that one colonel's name was, the absent-minded one. After Natalie tells her that they just went over all that, Dana just says "oh" and looks a little distracted and walks away.
At the desk, Dan is saying that the hold is a good thing because it gives Casey a chance to talk about it. Casey just looks at him. He clearly doesn't want to talk about it, as opposed to last episode, when he was doing that fake I-don't-want-to-talk-about-it thing that guys do when they pretend they don't want to brag about sleeping with someone the night before.
Back in the control room, Jeremy is typing on his laptop. Natalie strolls up and asks if he wants to get a doughnut. He explains that he wants to finish a letter to his sister. We see Dana making a phone call to Gordon, and then we go back to Natalie, who asks Jeremy if he wants to go somewhere and make out. The correct answer is "yes," but Jeremy explains again that he wants to finish the letter. In the side room, Dana is explaining and pleading to Gordon about the hold and says it'll be twenty or thirty minutes, tops, and says they're going to have a great time. She hangs up and comes back into the editing room, where she asks about a couple of tasks that Natalie has already taken care of. Dana says she has nothing to do. Wasn't this last episode's plot? Natalie asks if Dana wants to come with her to get a doughnut, but Dana says no. Natalie asks if Dana wants to go someplace and make out. Jeremy doesn't even LOOK UP, for God's sake. Dana turns that down -- on-screen, at least. In my head, it's a whole other story. ["It usually is. And it's a short story." -- Sars]
