Tenacity is talking about "mom jeans" being a funny visual when Scottie Pippen walks in. They're happy to have him, and they tell him he has the best team. When they tell him about their "first moments of funk" and "funky godfather" idea, he laughs, which they take as a good sign. Clyde the Glide shows up, and Bret gets a good vibe, Michael's happy to see him (because they were on the same Olympic team!), and Curtis whispers to Michael, "Which team did he play on?" Michael tells him Houston, and they both laugh, and Curtis says he's a foreigner, which is a good excuse. But I'm annoyed Michael said "Houston," when Clyde was much more famous for Portland. But maybe people in Houston think he was more famous for playing there. I know that he won an NBA championship finally in Houston, and he went to college there, but still... PORTLAND. Not that I care or anything. Curtis explains that it's embarrassing for him to be from Australia, because he wasn't even in this country when Clyde was a big deal. Michael forgives him.
Tenacity van. Holly, Scottie and Selita call Chris Paul on speakerphone because he's the spokesperson for Right Guard. He thinks they're on the right track. Holly talks shit about Cyndi and then Cyndi calls and they act all nice to her, but Holly gives her a task to write a testimonial about her son discovering his first moments of funk. RockSolid's packing up to go to the studio when Bret gets a text to call his daughter, Raine. He gets off the phone and tells them that his daughter's being tested for diabetes and he's freaking out. They're all super-supportive and nice to him, then Bret cries to the camera because his daughter asked if she'll have to take shots like him. Dude, she's being tested for it, right? Why not save the tears until after he knows she actually has it? And, even then, maybe don't act on national TV like it's a death sentence?
Scottie, Holly and Selita show up to the place they're shooting their commercial, while Maria and Summer are off to get props. Holly talks and talks and talks, and I'm not sure how Scottie can put up with it, actually. Scottie has to get on a plane in less than four hours, so they decide to shoot in front of a green screen. RockSolid, meanwhile, is looking around for something that looks like an apartment for their shoot, but it's just a big, cold, empty studio. Bret: "I'm gonna say something. Please don't hate me. It's just words." He wants to change everything, but Curtis doesn't think they can rethink everything at this point. He sends Michael and Goldberg to the prop house, while he and Bret stay to meet the director, who tells them the time constraints will have them "pumping and pushing." Dirty! Bret decides they have to change to a new idea, and tells Curtis to throw him under the bus and back over him if this fails. Curtis opts to change. Never a good idea.
