Day. Driving. Numbers. Tyler. Water. Tyler gets into the water with a bunch of other people, as he voice-overs that he's trying to get into triathlons and is taking "baby steps" to achieve that goal. Swimming. Swimming. Crap music plays as Tyler swims. Swimming. He's out first and puts on his shoes and starts running. He then tells us that he doesn't have a bike, so he's just participating in the first two parts! Heeeeeee.
Tyler gets home and brags to Paula that he "easily" won the swimming part. "That's great!" shouts Paula, her volume control clearly having been eaten by her own starving body. He gets a trophy. Paula yells some more. Tyler can't resist making a snotty comment.
Kitchen. Svet whines about needing more pans for the chicken she's about to cook. Zach camera-torahs that they're having Ricky for dinner and that it's going to be just another one of their dinners with too much food and tears. Svet cooks. Cooks. Paula lovingly washes cucumbers with her hands. Heh. Janelle snottily camera-talks, bitching about Svet's cooking, saying that she gets all power-trippy with it. John tells her, "Seriously, Fitz, you turn into a Nazi with this stuff." Doesn't he know Svet is Jewish? That's cold. Zach tells her to calm down, but she feels that they must have the food ready immediately when Ricky arrives. Svet pours honey all over her chicken. Zach arranges some nuts. Heh.
Ricky arrives. Hugging. Hugging. Cooking. The kids sit and toast. Eating. Eating. Janelle. Ricky. Pie. Now it's turned into a business meeting, and they discuss who is in charge of what and whether they'll be getting business cards. Svet then asks Ricky what the "definition" of "manager" is, and Ricky starts talking and John whines, wondering why Svet is so fixated on this whole manager thing. Svet is clearly trying to get some narrowly-defined position of manager (fewer duties or something) but Ricky (once again cryptically and confusingly, because this show is edited about as carefully as the Penny Saver) says that, no, he won't allow a narrower definition. John tells Ricky that the majority of people have decided that Zach would make a good manager. Naturally, Svet protests, saying she didn't agree to that. Jose camera-talks for her side, arguing that Svet has experience and would therefore make a good manager. Zach doesn't have the experience, Jose adds, but he gets along with everyone. Paula tries to defend Svet in front of everyone. They all start discussing the matter, and then Tyler busts in and says that this discussion is ridiculous, because they all already privately voted for Zach. Speaking of ridiculous, now Svet starts yelling that this is unfair and personal and that only three of them don't like her and they're sabotaging her chances. John says it's not true: nobody likes her. No, just kidding; actually, he says that everyone likes her and that she's being paranoid. Ricky calls for a vote. I call for a pillow and some Sominex. Commercials.
