Next up, the practice interview! Which, contrary to what Sam and Dana think, will not be of any use whatsoever, since it is IMPOSSIBLE to know how an interviewee will respond to any given question and this practice interview serves no function at all except to have Natalie talk in a deep voice while Jeremy pouts about not getting to be Michael, and I guess this is payback for when Jeremy got to be Dorothy Hamill, and I have to say that Im very impressed with Jeremy and Natalies abilities to switch gender roles willy-nilly. Jeremy and Natalie continue bickering with their sorry excuse for a storyline until Dana starts banging her head on the table, and Im assuming she was disturbed by the sex life of these two with Jeremy as Dorothy Hamill and Natalie as Michael Jordan. I cant even contemplate it. In the course of the pretend interview, Dan instructs "Michael" to call him "Daniel" in another shout-out to me, prompting Dana to bang her head on the table again. Its only fair, since Dana often has this exact same effect on me. As this inanity continues, we realize that Kims Breasts are only required in these meetings in case the phone rings, which it does, so she answers it. Since the Sports Night writers are now obviously reading these recaps, could you please have someone refer to Kim by her first name so I can be sure that is in fact her name? I just had to guess by watching the credits last week but Id like to know for sure. Anyway, Kim gets a lot of lines this scene, and she enunciates them very well. It takes a long time, but what happens is as follows: Sam wants to see Dana, shes busy, he wants to see her now, tell him Im busy, its not a request, its a command?, thats the implication, is this Taming Of The Shrew?, he doesnt get the reference. This causes Dana to get all excited at the prospect of throwing her Shakespearean knowledge in his face and skips off, even though anyone can guess this is just a ploy to get her to come. When she leaves, Jeremy apologizes to Natalie for being Dorothy Hamill. Natalie says, "Sorry, dont feed the bulldog, Dottie," whatever the hell that means. I just feel very uneasy right now.
