Chris and Markus get into a discussion with the group about the duration of their class, doing the math that doing 45-minute classes will cheat them out of the revenue of one class in the day. Everyone smiles because they're trying to be nice, but this is, like, completely confusing to Markus. Josh interviews that Markus was immediately out of his depth, confused, six or seven times asking everyone to "slow down" and "be cool." Shameful oboe music starts as Markus asks if there's anything he "could, or should be doing better." Everyone looks grossed out and horrified, and Josh interviews a Stuart Smalley impression, ending with an irritated "Get some balls!"
That night, Randal's on the suite phone learning that his grandmother has passed away. After discussing the funeral awhile, he just hangs up and sits quietly with the phone, his hand to his head. He finally clears his throat and stands, trying not to cry. When he informs the group of this development, Markus kind of drapes himself across Randal for a sublimely awkward second. Randal explains that her breathing tube fell out and the nurses didn't come in time, so she suffocated. How horrible. Everyone gives him some sympathy, and the already-likeable Josh gets extra points for asking whether the grandmother was maternal or paternal. As if it matters, but that's the point. Asking for a meaningless detail, or any information at all, is a good way to snap someone out of getting depressed in situations like this.
The women pass out fliers for their "Triple Threat" class, which is composed of boxing, Pilates, and an ab workout. On the red flyer, the huge heading reads "Triple XXX Threat." It's embarrassing. Marshawn mentions that it looked like something for a strip club, but it was the PM's call, and she didn't seem to think it was too big a deal. Later, Kristi will explain that this was a graphics accident and the "Triple Threat" was supposed to written in front of the "XXX," using it as a graphic, which is a lot better. Now, though, they just look like hos.
