Jeff is on the phone with K-ROCK. Jeff puts Mike the Programming Director on speakerphone so that he can tell the roommates that they got the add slot. Big surprise, there. Everyone cheers.
Devin is wearing a button-down shirt! I'm not lying. It's black and short-sleeved. Anyway, he comes in and tells all of the roommates what a great job they did. Adam remembers the one-on-one meetings they had when they first started the job. Cue the black and white montage of meetings. Devin announces that they have a gift for the roommates. I think it's going to be something cool, because they are from a music label. They potentially could have cool gifts. Wait, when did Quarrel's hair get all curly? It actually looks pretty good, but it was just a shock to see. Instead, it's a framed rendition of a bunch of CD covers -- possibly all of the artists that the roommates helped promote. Regardless, it's a boring gift. I got better gifts from music labels when I worked for a national retailer, and I wasn't even allowed to keep them. Frequently, they involved food. We always loved it when the big music labels would come for their meetings, because they would dish out for a huge spread, and then after the meeting, any uneaten food would be put in the lunchroom. You've never seen people run so fast as when the email went out that said, "Free food from the lunchroom!" Man, those were the days.
Oh, yeah. The show is still going on. Devin and Adam make up some lie about final paperwork, and the roommates walk into the conference room to discover that there is a surprise farewell party for them. Malik tells everyone that the Arista team is "definitely...a family." In an interview, Nicole says that she thinks that the job helped the roommates to learn to work together. Oh, so when she was yelling at Mike about the window displays, that was working together? Speaking of the window displays, the editors play "Thank You" by Dido, an Arista artist, over this scene. The roommates all put their hands on knife and cut the cake. Everyone claps.
Next week: the finale! Everyone packs. They have a final dinner. Quarrel gets cut off in mid-sentence. People are sad. Kim is very, very happy.
