It's coming up on twenty to 5, and the VersaCorp Field Team is sprinting down the sidewalk. Bill interviews that they ran twenty-five blocks in order to make it back to Trump Tower for the 5:00 meeting. He gets on the phone with Sam, assuring him that they're getting the Polaroid camera right now. Sam -- oblivious to the fact that Bill is literally running through the streets as they're talking -- starts giving him more football metaphors and more pep talk, which could not be more the opposite of what's needed. Bill tells Sam that Sam needs to go over and get the cigars, because the Field Team doesn't have the time before the meeting. Well, and the Home Team isn't, after all, doing a damn thing. Bill assures Sam that the cigars can be gotten right over on Madison Avenue, which isn't far from Sam. Instead of just going, Sam asks Boyfriend Bill whether he's going to make the meeting at 5:00. Bill tries to get Sam to shut up, telling him that, indeed, they will be there. Sam launches into a weird, annoying, Tony-Robbins-esque speech about how Bill is on the field, he's on the team, he needs to calm down, blah blah blah. Nick seems to overhear Bill say to Sam on the Space Communicator, "Shut up for a second and listen to me," because he cracks up laughing. Nick then prods Sam to stop yapping and just do what Bill is asking, by going to the get the cigars. Sam decides in favor of continued yapping instead. "Execution," he says meaningfully. You can just hear Boyfriend Bill's brain saying, "I'll give you 'execution,' dude." Somehow or other, we next see the guys snagging the Polaroid camera for $30, down from a listed retail price of $65. Wish we'd seen how that happened. Cheap store? Hard to say. With that done, they start running again, headed for Madison. And this is where I insist that although they let Sam be hoist with his own petard, they didn't intentionally sandbag the guy and fail on purpose. There's too much running for me to believe that was the case. Bowie tells them that he might lag a little, but that if he does, he'll catch up. Aw.
