Team Power is wrapped up in more rational, expected concerns. How do we put all this information into 90 seconds? Stuff like that. It's going well. As long as they spell everything properly, they are likely to win.
Back in the crazy house of the mechanical dog, Penn takes dictation from Gary's brain. There is no mission statement, no idea, just a man turning into a mechanical dog.
Lil Jon is working hard to create the best product possible and set up the shots. Joan Rivers visits and worries that they might be wasting too much time getting the shots perfect, but she hasn't seen the state of things at Plan B yet.
The actors arrive at Plan B, and Penn notices that Gary chose two women of the same age to play his wife and his daughter (yes, Gary is starring in this as the man who turns into the dog). This episode just gets better and better. The actors listen to Gary's diatribe about acting in earnest. Soak it up, kids, it's about to get weirder.
We all watch, rapt, as Gary crashes through the scene he wrote and pushes the cameramen out of the way. Meanwhile, Trace goes to the editing bay to work on stuff that Lil Jon sends him quickly so that they won't get clocked for taking too long on production. But this is really all about Gary and his improv scene from hell somehow turning into an LG product demonstration.
"Everything associated with LG should have a sense of warm optimism, confidence, and a sophisticated, premium, quality tone," Lisa reads from their branding guide as Gary asks the actor to hold him back as he barks at nothing. She shakes her head in defeat watching hours and hours of rehearsal. She suggests they start shooting and Gary tells her he'll decide that.
"I know how to deal with crazy, I'm not sure I know how to deal with this right now," Lisa says in a confessional. She and Penn have been cordoned off, left to hold their heads in their hands. Ivanka stops by, and Penn confesses that they might not even have a video. They have half an hour remaining and haven't shot anything. Ivanka asks if they have a storyline, and Penn says they have one, but it's odd.
"Plan B seems to have descended into chaos," Ivanka remarks. Then she asks Gary if the dog is barking or vomiting, a polite question, and Gary gives her an example of that retching noise and promises her he will be the mechanical dog in the boardroom.
Lil Jon and Marilu head to the editing room, where Trace is telling an actual editor what they want. They are very proud of their work so far, but Marilu is worried about continuity and how she looks in the video. That is something Gary won't be concerned with.
