In the meeting room, Dana is saying to Sally that she hopes helping out while Isaac is off won't disrupt the 2 a.m. slot much, that it's only for a week or so. Sally says it's no problem, but adds that she's surprised Dana didn't ask Natalie to do this. Sally thought Dana had more confidence in Natalie. Dana's a little surprised, but says "no" sadly, without even offering up a feeble statement along the lines of how this has nothing to do with a lack of confidence in Natalie. Speak of the devil, Natalie comes in with the good news that Pluto is still a planet. Is this nonsense supposed to help us realize why the network doesn't have much confidence in Natalie? Because as far as I'm concerned, it's totally working. "It was touch and go there for a while?" says Sally with a little sarcasm. Natalie gets all rah-rah for Pluto here, annoying me. I figure Sally thought to herself, "Oh, this is why Dana didn't ask Natalie; Natalie's insane." Dana tells Natalie that, in Isaac's absence, she's asked Sally to assume some of her duties. Natalie does a good job of looking a little surprised but recovering to say, "I had a hunch!" and thanking Sally for helping out. Dana tries to downplay just how much Sally will be helping out, and does so again when the rest of the crew comes in. Jeremy storms in and announces that he has broken up with Natalie. Dana looks at Natalie, who shakes her head no. Jeremy whips out a piece of paper and says he put it in writing and that he can now ask out other women, which Natalie disputes. To spite her, Jeremy asks out Dana, who turns him down because, she says, he's going out with Natalie. Jeremy stomps off to sulk in his corner. They whip through the rundown meeting really quickly, but before everyone can go, Casey announces that he has some information on what to do if you think the building you work in is in danger of blowing up. All in favour of me skipping this? Carried. Meeting adjourned. Outside, Jeremy pleads some more with Natalie, laying out all the crazy stuff going on in his life again, but she still won't let him break up with her, and refuses to take him seriously, which finally seems to piss him off: "Nothing is the same anymore!" She stops and tells him that many things are the same. Then she explains that she doesn't think his decision-making skills are the best right now, so she's taking him into "receivership" but they're not breaking up.
