In an interview, David says, "Ain't nobody gonna back me down. You can stand up to me, you can say your views and everything, but when it comes down to it, I'm gonna get my way." I seriously wish this season could have a follow-up episode where we get to see these people in their first real jobs, and they try to pull this shit, and their asses get canned. We'll see how David "flows" then. Kelley is getting emotional and says that she wanted everyone to pick some questions and then she would "break it down," and that if David had listened, he would have heard that. David asks, "Where is the break down at?" Kelley gets frustrated and tells David to "screw the whole thing" and starts to walk away. David says, "Yeah, roll it. That's how it's going to be." Everyone walks away, and nothing was resolved. Have I mentioned lately that I hate David? Because I do.
Then there is a commercial break and my recapping activities are halted because I start watching an episode of Sex & the City. You see, Carrie was...oh, forget it. I guess I have to continue recapping this show instead, because unlike David and some of the others, I have a work ethic.
Back at NOA-TV studios, the group is having a "rehearsal." Julie and Jamie are working the cameras. Elton tells them to treat the rehearsal as if it were the real thing. In an interview, Julie says that they do some dry runs, and it doesn't go very well. You'd think that would mean we could skip the next few minutes of footage, but we have to watch. The stage manager (or whatever they call the stage manager in the television world ["I think that is what they call them!" -- Wing Chun]) counts down and Kelley starts out with, "Hi, welcome to The Real Seven on Seventy-Seven." Then, clearly, someone else was supposed to pick up the cue, but didn't, so we see a shot of Matt, then Melissa, then Elton, then Kelley, and then Jamie. Jamie is wearing sunglasses, which doesn't seem ideal while working a camera. No one talks. In an interview, David says that the "dry runs are pathetic." Julie starts giving some instructions into her headset, but Kelley says that it's "not what they have on here," gesturing to a piece of paper sitting in front of her. Karrie, who is identified as one of the NOA-TV staff members, says that she didn't know what they were doing. In an interview, David says tht they have a blueprint of what's happening, then he says, "Whoo whoo" again, then tells us that Danny didn't have the blueprint in the control room. Danny tells someone in the control room that they have a list of things written down, but he doesn't have it in front of him. Does the station own a copy machine? How hard would it be for someone to run and make a copy? In an interview, David says that Danny is changing the whole thing and Kelley is getting pissed. We see Kelley getting pissed because she says sarcastically, "Thank you, Danny." (She really didn't look that pissed.) In an interview, Kelley says that the show was all coming out of her ass. Well, that's a visual that I really didn't need. Kelley tells everyone in the studio that she will guide them through the topics, because she thinks she knows what the three top ones are. In an interview, Julie says that people don't know what they're talking about, which, to her, is a bad sign.
