In an interview, Matt says that he and David ended up "hitching a ride to meet with the manager of 'Mental Metropolis.'" I'm sure he means that someone gave them a ride, not that they stuck out their thumbs on the side of the road, although that does present a humorous mental image. While they meet with the band manager, David voice-overs that he "has issues" (you're telling me!) because the only person really, really working hard besides himself is Matt. They finish their meeting and leave. While walking down the street, they have a conversation where David says they discussed being in the office from noon to four. Matt says that "they know they're in the wrong," and then gives an example of how he would handle it if he were the producer. I actually like Matt for a second, because he gives David advice in a pretty non-offensive manner. I half-expected David to turn around and spit, "You're NOT the producer! I am! Me! David! Me!"
In an interview, David says that he doesn't have a level-one storm, and he doesn't have a level-two storm, and that everything is level six. What the hell is he talking about? Then he says to Matt that level six is not a good place to be. This reminds me an uncomfortable amount of Puck, on the Reunion Special, talking about how they can have Puck on six or Puck on ten. And Puck was most likely mentally ill, and allegedly on hallucinogenic drugs. What's David's excuse? I think someone has been watching The Weather Channel a little too much. Matt wants to know what he can do to help bring David down to calm, because he doesn't want the others to "push off" what David has to say. I don't know how Matt continues to talk rationally to David. I would be all, "Dude, you are crazy! Woo woo!" David voice-overs, "Matt and David is a team, dude! I got all I need in Matt!" This is getting a little strange. First, Matt is asking how he could possibly calm David down, and now David is saying that he has all he needs in Matt. David tells Matt that just his presence will help him to stay calm. Matt just wants to be sure that things come out right. David says, "Just be there." Then, David says, "Just be there." David likes to repeat himself. He and Matt enter the house.
