Leslie's hair looks like crazy ass for the rest of the episode. Dan steps forward at the Gold Rush reward and shakes hands with the head of the non-profit, first thing. I really think he's going to do well. The guy introduces them to the concept of John, Robert, and Vaughn, who have had "a little bit of hardship in their lives," and tells them that this exercise is about motivating them to "get back out into the workforce." This is so cool. There's a comparable non-profit for women that gets a lot more attention (and maybe for just a titch bigger reason), but it's a very, very cool concept regardless. I'm glad they both exist. John used to be on Wall Street, but kind of lost his mind after 9/11. It took two years for the downward spiral to fully land him on public assistance. I doubt very much that he's the sole case. Dan works with him and dresses him and is so cute and interviews about the importance of helping these men get to a place where they can "take care of themselves and their families." Robert's been in sales for five years, but "one thing" lead to "another" and out of nowhere he lost his job and now he has no idea what to do. At some point he made the counterintuitive step of growing a soul patch. I'm not unsympathetic, God knows, but I do want to offer what help I can. Lenny tells him he's the "king of the hour," and it's touching. They get all the guys dressed and then they come out looking great and shaking everybody's hands and they all applaud them and it's lovely.
