Kristi and an old guy talk about how he would prefer to be able to use and touch the equipment himself, if he's going to be learning about it. "What's the point in watching...youngsters with beautiful eyes" doing all the stuff? The women blush and giggle and he tells them all what beautiful eyes they have. I love flirty, harmless old men like this. My paternal grandfather, Doc, was like that: this insanely flirtatious ex-military guy, a veterinarian, and I spent the better part of my childhood watching him charm the almost-literal panties off of women a third of his age. Really, though, I just want to know why this was under discussion: what were the options on the table? Were they thinking of using more of a seminar format? "Then you press the ON button, which you see I'm pointing at now."
Jen M. gives her interview stretching languorously back against a wall with this crazy I Dream Of Jeannie hair and a black trench. It's a really weird, off-kilter kind of modeling pose and I'm really unsure as to what the deal is there. ["I can't swear to this, but I'm pretty sure they put Omarosa in that weird pageant-doorsill pose too. Very awkward." -- Sars] She explains that they're going to be judged based on surveys that the seniors themselves will fill out. It's very glamorous and very weird, as she is telling us this. They all shake hands with the original focus group old guys, and Jen M. looks totally beautiful. One old geezer says he'll come if the pretty ladies will be there, and everybody laughs. He's not kidding.
Excel is also interviewing old people they've back to their conference room. Clay talks to an old man named Jacob about his technological level of experience. Jacob feels that computers are "something from the devil." It's awesome, the way that he says it, like he feels like they're "something from Ithaca." Randal looks at him tenderly and they kind of laugh and get weirded out because this is a 91-year-old man they're dealing with and they don't know if he means it like a metaphor or what. Creepy Mark and his blindingly white hick teeth and stupid fake tan tell us what we just saw, and then back in the conference room, Clay looks perturbed and James stares at something in that freaky way he has.
Markus says that TiVo is a great idea, and Clay just directly contradicts him, saying that the old people will avoid the technology expo if something really scary like TiVo is there. I would think they'd be more scared of the computers, if they're honestly going to go running (or shuffling or whatever) the second the terrifying technology is revealed, because a computer you can at least recognize on sight. TiVo, there's a whole explanation of why it's cool that will draw them in before they get scared. Markus diplomatically offers to be in charge of the TiVo presentation, and again, Clay has to disagree. He interviews that TiVo is a very hard thing to set up. Why is that any harder than anything else? Because it's Clay that's scared of TiVo, obviously.
