At NOA-TV, David asks someone for the number in the office. David voice-overs that its 1:30 and he's got to meet with the manager of the band at 2:00. Matt adds helpfully, in an interview, "And the car is gone." Seriously, that was the whole interview segment with Matt. See, I think they're trying to make it out like David isn't the only one who's upset over this issue, so they have Matt throw in really unnecessary details that I'm sure David covered in his own interview. Cut to Julie driving the car, with Melissa and Kelley reading a magazine in the back seat. Julie is totally turned around in her seat talking to them, and I'm just waiting for them to get in an accident. Cut back to the station, where David is voice-overing, "Jamie is chilling, Matt's at the computer, and nobody else is there." Then, in case we didn't grasp the subtleties of "nobody else is there," David goes on to say that nobody is in the editing suite, nobody is in the production suite, and nobody's anywhere. David pages the missing roommates. In an interview, David helps the editors stretch this episode out a little more by explaining what he was just doing, saying that he's paging everybody, "like 1-800-page, page, page." Ah, I think I've figured out his problem. There are way too many digits in that phone number. No wonder in the next scene we see him getting a "out of service" tone. David continues talking, saying that they knew he had to go to this meeting, and it's bothering him a lot. Back in the car, Julie asks everyone if they want to go right back to work. Danny says yes, and Melissa says sarcastically, "Yes, so we can get yelled at. Please, take me quickly." Notice that they are cutting this as if the events in the car are happening while David is paging them, when they could have been hours before or hours later.
