The whole gang sits around a conference table as Stephen reads and times the copy he has written. In an interview, Stephen says, "The REI spots are coming along fine. I'm doing the intros for the girls' commercials." Kelsey says that she wants these to be a trip journal, and then asks Stephen whether he's awake. Busted! He was totally snoozing right there at the conference table. In an interview, Lindsay says that Kelsey has done everything for them. What is it with the Real World casts slacking off at the jobs? Seriously. Stephen says that he's going to email his scripts to Kelsey that night. Lindsay continues in her interview, saying, "For being a bunch of overachievers, we're taking things pretty slow." Yeah, that's the worst part about nearly every season -- they not only slack off at the job, but they talk about how great they are while doing nothing. Stephen gets Kelsey's email address and takes off.
Back at Pier 70, it's time for Space Needle Shot #62. Do you think we'll hit one hundred before the end of the season? Irene sits on the couch with a shirt over her face, and tells Stephen that she feels "like such an old lady." Stephen suggests that she "lay [sic] down." And I only point out his grammatical error because he's such an "academian." Also, if Stephen really wanted to help Irene feel better, maybe he could get rid of the spotlight next to his head. Even through the television screen, that thing is hurting my eyes. Irene lies down and notes that her arms have been falling asleep a lot more lately. In an interview, Stephen says that, at first, he thought she just wanted sympathy, but now he thinks she really might be sick. He continues, "And I do care. I told her if she is sick, I'm there for her and so are all the rest of us [emphasis mine]." Irene tells Stephen that she has bruises all over her body, and she feels like every time she gets rid of one symptom, something else crops up. In an interview, Irene wipes away a tear as she says that this is something she doesn't want to be going through right now, and she doesn't want to talk about it and analyze it. Crazy montage alert! It goes: white lights, Irene, gel lights, Irene, camera man, Irene, statue, white lights, Stephen, statue, white lights, statue, Irene, Stephen, orange lights, statue, Irene, Stephen, pan to Irene, two shot of them both, close-up on the fire, concluding with Space Needle shot #63.
