As the sun comes up, Stephen voice-overs that he slept next to Irene on the couch that night so that he could be there if she needed anything. Sure enough, there's Stephen on the gross crumb-filled couch, right next to Irene. Stephen says that he gave her a blanket and "her little ugly dog that she sleeps with." Foreshadowing! Stephen says that he doesn't know how Irene is feeling because "she didn't say anything to anyone, so everyone was in the dark." Excuse me? She has talked about nothing but her symptoms this episode, and now they're telling us she's keeping it a secret from her roommates? The editors need to make up their minds which way they're going here. Does she talk about her illness non-stop (which is the footage we've seen) or does she keep it a secret?
Rebecca is at the fish market. Tony, the producer of the radio show, comes up and tells Rebecca that Stephen never faxed Kelsey his scripts. Rebecca tells Tony that Stephen is nearby, and they decide to go talk to him about it. On the way over, Tony tells Rebecca that Stephen would do a good job, but that "he dropped the ball." Rebecca and Tony walk into a pizza place, where Stephen and Nathan are eating some pizza. Tony asks Stephen whether he's checked his email or talked to Kelsey. Stephen says he hasn't. Tony tells Stephen to talk to Kelsey when he gets to the station, because she's not too happy.
At the station, Stephen walks up to Kelsey, who says, "Give me your script, because I have to turn it in today." Stephen says, by way of excuse, "I got a lot of boo boo, so I'm wiping my butt of it right now." Huh? What is he talking about? Kelsey doesn't run away from him, which is what I would do. She calmly tells him that she has deadlines to meet, so he has to hold up his end of the bargain. Kelsey reminds him that she waited all day, and tells him he should have called her. Stephen says, "But the thing is, I slept the day. I woke up at, like, 3:00." Oh, that's a good excuse. Couldn't he have just lied and said he was sick or something?
Back at Pier 70, Irene passes Rebecca in the kitchen. Irene stands near the pool table. This is intercut with shots of Irene in the confessional, her hair messy, rubbing her face, then rolling her eyes and not saying anything. Oh, she must be crazy if she went for a whole fifteen seconds in the confessional without talking. And then, get this -- she's standing next to the pool table! In her pajamas! Call the psychiatrists!
