Back in the production room of slack, Corbin and his Droogs are watching professional wrestling -- I'd like to insert here how annoyed I am that the local TV listings now include pro wrestling in its weekly wrap-up of sports highlights. Jeremy comes in and asks to see Corbin outside. He then not only doesn't fire Corbin, but he explains how he's supposed to fire him but that he's sticking up for him, and Jeremy's eagerness to suck-up to this kid and apparent need to make Corbin like him seem sadder to me than any of Danny's problems. Corbin reveals he doesn't even want the job, but it puts pizza money in his pocket until he gets out of school, but when Jeremy tells Corbin he's supposed to fire him, Corbin does seem somewhat chastened and promises to do better: "I'm on the team," he says. Jeremy says "good" and walks away, but Corbin stops him by saying, "I don't take sides." Jeremy wants to know what he means. "When J.J. says stuff about you guys, I don't, you know, I don't come back with stuff," and I find it hard to believe that even J.J. would want this barely coherent twit working at the station. Jeremy wants to know what kind of stuff. "Don't worry about it," says Corbin. Jeremy says okay, and Corbin says again that he'll work harder.
Casey comes strolling into the control room and Dana wants to know when he's getting the names, and they continue with the most contrived bit of journalistic non-suspense ever filmed as Casey says "any minute now" and that he's going to go "stake out" the fax machine. There is some inanity regarding Casey surrendering his airplane peanuts to Natalie. Jeremy comes back in. "Did you do it?" asks Natalie. Jeremy, still glum, asks if she has a second. Natalie checks with Dana and then heads out into the hall.
For some reason, Jeremy says he did fire Corbin. Then he says, "but not really." Uh, that would be "not at all," Jeremy. Natalie, disgusted, says, "Put a pair of tights and a party dress on you, you're one pretty little girl." Can I point out that both of the main women characters on this show, in this episode, have demonstrated that the ultimate insult is to call someone a "little girl"? I can? Okay. And I'll also point out that Natalie in particular indicates that "little girl" is a worse insult than "little boy." ["No kidding. Put a pair of tights and a party dress on Natalie, she still sucks. Shut up, Natalie." -- Sars] Jeremy tries to defend his actions by saying he's the only one not acting emotionally and letting The Suits have this one thing if it keeps the peace. Yeah, give them Poland, why don't you, Jeremy. Natalie appears to consider this and wants to know what Corbin said. Jeremy said Corbin said he'd try harder, but those weren't his exact words. Natalie wants to know what his exact words were. Jeremy says Corbin's exact words were "get off my back," and I don't understand why Jeremy would say that, since it doesn't help his case any. Natalie, actually behaving like a boss and not bossy for once, says Corbin is Jeremy's responsibility, but if he screws up again, he's her responsibility. As Jeremy turns to go, Natalie says, "Being emotional about their work never killed anybody. I'm loyal to Isaac, I'm loyal to Dana, and I'm loyal to the show." Jeremy says he is too.
