The writers' room is empty (and somehow uncluttered, which I find unbelievable considering the wretched state it was in the last time we saw it) except for Eli and Lilly ["heh" -- Wing Chun] when Cal brings in Matt and Danny. He introduces them to Eli, "freshman writer for The Philco Comedy Hour." Matt introduces himself in the voice you'd use to address a particularly slow kindergartener. Danny does the same and asks if Eli's up for telling them everything he can remember about the old days. You see, the elderly may be a chore to put up with sometimes, but they have valuable stories to tell, often stories that are relevant to the events in your life. Like how, in the old days, the network wasn't comfortable with political humor. Just like it is today! And in the old days, Eli had a crush on the lady comic and the only reason he got a sketch on the air was because he was trying to impress her. Just like Matt and Harriet! We see Harriet over Matt's shoulder as Eli's saying this part, but she's suddenly crushed by an anvil that got shaken loose from the rafters. Eli doesn't notice, because he's too busy talking about how nobody's funnier than the Marx Brothers and Phil Silvers, though don't tell Milton Berle he said that. Ah, old people. It's funny when they don't know that people are dead.
Next week on Studio 60: watch Friday Night Lights! It's really good.
