Sunrise. Santa Monica. Crane shot over the nice, pricey waterfront property and over into Venice and the Beach House of Banality. Jon jams alone in his room. Tami does a furious set of sit-ups in the hallway. Beth S. reads Variety. Some unidentifiable music jangles in the background as Beth simpers that she believes Tami is destined for great success. She says that if all of them "put [their] minds to it, one hundred percent," they'll "get what [they] want." She flips through the classifieds at the back of Variety -- most of which, by the way, read along the lines of "Non-Union actors needed for student film. Nudity required." Beth shoves her résumé into a manila envelope. Okay, so I just got laid off from my shitty-ass copywriting job, right, and how sad is it that at this moment, I identify with Beth? Please, just kill me right now. Beth reclines on a beach chair, and Jessica Wakefields that although she doesn't know exactly what she wants to do with her life, but that when she figures it out, she knows she'll succeed, because she always gets what she wants.

Oh, God. Tami, Beth, and Jon loll around the girls' room. Tami looks at Beth very seriously and informs her that she believes if "you're excellent at your craft and true to your work, if you're good, they'll take you no matter what you look like."
