Leaving the set, Elliot hands a tape of the game to Dan. Casey says he'll pop into the office to watch the game later, but he's going to talk to Jeremy for a moment. Heading into the newsroom, Dan starts yelling for everyone to shut up about Orlando Rojas and the Orioles game, as if Dan and the other members of the main Sports Night gang pay any attention to what the little people say anyway. Dan walks into his office, where Rebecca's waiting. He stops bellowing. She tells him Rojas slipped on a tangerine peel in the locker room before the game, twisted his ankle, and didn't pitch. Dan's totally fooled, but the "tangerine" part smelled like slightly too much detail to me, so I didn't buy it. Dan smirks. "That was nice. You played a little joke," he said. Then Rebecca offers up a whole lot of apologetic blah blah about how Steve Sisko didn't want her in his world of sports and blah blah blah and I tuned out because I once had a girlfriend who used to pull the same shit on me; she got all neurotic when I didn't behave the same way her previous boyfriend did, the same guy whose behaviour she always complained about.
