Chris goes on and on about cute little "bud vases" and some delicious "glitter" everywhere and it's like I always say about fraternities: At some point your insecurity about your sexuality goes through normal and comes out the other side and actually renders the entire question irrelevant. That's why in Samoa and other developing nations, adolescents are sent out into the woods, unarmed, and they don't come back until they've learned a thing or two. I can't make it any clearer for you than Sigourney can, Chris. Well, maybe I can: you were fully ten times gayer when you and Josh were on the same team. Does that help at all?
Excel goes for a meeting with the CEO of Autism Speaks, Alison Singer, who tells them upfront that one in 166 children are now diagnosed with autism, and that she herself has a daughter with autism, and Josh almost falls out of his chair: "God." She nods her head, explaining that leading with "the facts" is what drives fundraising for her organization: "If you can communicate that message, you will have a successful event." Josh interviews that his wife just got pregnant (mazel tov) and that, even though he has previously pledged to give a million percent for Randal, he will now go looking for extra ounces of effort throughout his body and give those, too. He's clearly affected, and it's nice, because we only saw little bits of this, like with Randal's grandmother or at the hospital, but this is the full-on "Josh is destroyed by autism" moment, and it's nice.
Ms. Singer asks how they plan on doing the fundraiser, and the first thing Josh mentions is a silent auction, and then in an interview she describes how Josh seemed like the leader of the group: "He immediately understood that increased awareness leads to increased fundraising ability." Josh mentions that they could have megaphones, because of the "Speaks" part of Autism Speaks, and Singer loves it, and Randal thinks it's great and asks Marshawn to add it to the budget. Which is funny, because we know he's willing to steal megaphones any old time. Singer finds Randal "overly focused on operational details" and isn't paying enough attention to the "importance of getting the message out." She has concerns that "if he doesn't understand the message and its importance, the event won't be as successful as it can be." This is bogus, and I'll tell you why.
