Jeremy Goodwin, in the newsroom, on the phone, ordering up some nautical charts. He's interrupted by a squealing Natalie, who's excited that Jeremy's back. So excited, in fact, that she can't wait until he gets off the damn phone before she starts asking if he got the card she sent and the box of Good 'N' Plenty. When he gets off the phone, he thanks her and apologizes for not calling last night. "Or the night before," she reminds him. It would be a good idea if someone reminded Natalie that Jeremy's parents are getting a divorce, so this really might not be about her. She says she's such a good girlfriend that she's not going to ask why he didn't call. This is, of course, followed by her asking why he didn't call. He tells her it was just one of those things. She presses him until he shuts her up with a pointed "Natalie" or two. The phone rings, and he picks it up and starts talking about nautical charts that he needs because he wants to figure out what happened, while all Natalie can do is point out she bought him the big box of Good 'N' Plenty.
Conference room. Dan and Casey sit, by themselves. They look around, fairly certain there's supposed to be a rundown meeting going on, wondering why no one else is there. Casey seizes the opportunity to start bragging about how well-rounded he is. His evidence: he speaks many languages, he knows how to juggle, and he plays the piano. And just so you know how desperate I was for something to happen, I passed the time by comparing myself to Casey. I can juggle and I play the piano, but I only speak two languages. You'd be surprised how much it depresses you to measure yourself against Casey and come up short. Dan is likewise desperate to escape Casey running down his good qualities, and demands that people enter the room. As if on cue -- well, it is a television show -- everybody else starts coming in from both ends of the room. You'd think a larger audience would only encourage Casey to continue, but here it shuts him up. Dana gives Will crap for sitting in Isaac's chair. Will feebly says, "I thought Isaac wasn't here," but Dana says he still can't sit in Isaac's chair. Does that rule apply to everybody, or is it just because this is Will, the office doormat? Dana starts going on about how excited she is because this meeting only has nine items to cover and they're going to quickly get through them. Then she says "bam!" a whole bunch of times and really, any time that might have been saved she has totally wasted by babbling endlessly about just how quick this meeting's going to go. Dan interrupts her to say, "Dana," and he puts his hand up, and Dana groans and covers her face with her hands and says, "This meeting sucks!" and maybe somebody should be concerned about Dana's bi-polar disorder here.
