Matt is working with some wood and some saws, and I hope that he's building a giant stepladder for David to climb up and get over himself. In an interview, Matt says, "You're the bee's knees." Okay, he really doesn't say that, but he's wearing that crazy raccoon coat again, and that's what he probably should have said. Instead, he said that he and Lionel built the sets for the show, and that Lionel works for NOA-TV. They took Matt's design and "made it happen." We see some shots of Matt and Lionel using saws and sanders and stuff like that. Luckily, Matt doesn't have to wear safety goggles because of his freakishly oversized sunglasses. Elton takes a look at the finished sets and asks how they plan to break them down quickly once their show is over so that the next show can get set up. Matt says, "Um...um..." and then explains that he's "not experienced in set design," so he was "not aware of that factor" and didn't design for it, so "it is a problem." In other words, "Oops!" Elton says that he wants the entire set to be made of foamcore so that one person can carry the whole thing around easily. In an interview, Matt says, "You're the cat's pajamas." No, he really says that Elton wants foamcore, even if it means that Matt has to spend forty more hours building a new set. Wouldn't Lionel, who works for NOA-TV and is a professional carpenter, have known about the foamcore issue?
The roommates are gathered in the NOA-TV conference room. Matt tells everyone that he didn't think about conferring with Elton over the set issue, because he was working with the set designer, but that Elton things the set isn't mobile enough. Then he says he doesn't want the others to worry about it because it's his problem. While I admire his taking responsibility, why did he bring it up in the first place if he doesn't want them to worry about it? Since we didn't see what prompted the discussion, I guess we'll never know. Melissa says that she's sad because he put so much time and work into it, and now he has to tear it down when he had no idea it was wrong. I can't believe Melissa actually thought about someone other than herself for once.
