In the hallway, Jeremy chases down Dana and Isaac, not to fret about what "the call" is, but to nail down exactly when "after lunch" is. So rather than putting up with Jeremy's skittishness, Isaac decides to "do this now. You worked for Mark Sabith over at USA Today?" Jeremy says "yes," but the mention of Sabith's name appears to worry Jeremy a bit. "He's a friend of mine," says Isaac, and Jeremy says Sabith mentioned that. Dana says Jeremy's doing really well and they want him to get some producing experience. She gets on the phone and tells Natalie to bring in "the material" for Jeremy, like this is some sort of James Bond briefing. "It's not a prestige assignment, it just lets us take a look at what you can do," says Isaac. Dana tells him he's going to be putting together a couple of segments for The CSC Outdoorsman. "The hunting show?" says Jeremy, a little disbelievingly. "Camping, fishing, hiking," says Dana. "And hunting," says Jeremy. "Is that a problem?" asks Isaac. "No," says Jeremy, although it clearly is.
Jeremy puts on a glad face and explains that he doesn't know anything about hunting, that he's never hunted. "I have a deli on the corner and they deliver 24 hours, so..." but Natalie walks in with this week's array of high-tech gadgets to help Jeremy on his mission: briefing material. She tells him tomorrow he'll take a van up to the Adirondacks with his crew. They'll be meeting a professional guide and a Cincinnati Red celebrity guest star. Wednesday they're going after New England blue mallard, Thursday they're going after deer. Natalie says, "Deer get very big in the Adirondacks, so please be careful." Aw! She's so sweet! Friday he comes back and puts his segments together. Jeremy asks Isaac if he's being punished for guessing the play correctly during the football game. Isaac says he'll do fine, and leaves. Dana says, "Knock our socks off," and leaves. Natalie says, "I can't wait to see how good you are in the bush," and leaves. Nah, she doesn't. Jeremy seems a little concerned that Isaac talked to his old boss, but Natalie doesn't ask him why or anything. Then she hands him a bag and says she brought him some snacks for the ride up -- Twinkies and candy and sundry. Okay, dammit, I really wish Natalie would quit endearing herself to me and go back to pissing me off. Jeremy thanks her and doesn't hear me yelling, "Dude, you are so in there!" She tells him not to be so nervous. "You're getting the call!" she squeals, and skips out. "I still don't know what that means," he calls after her.
