David (yes, this episode is all about him) walks into the NOA-TV studios to meet with Elton. In a confessional, David says that producing a show is very hard, and that he's been up since six this morning. Gasp! Six in the morning? Why, he deserves a medal of some sort. David tells Elton that he's been working. In a confessional, David says that they have a show on Saturday, and he knows that nobody is going to work as hard as he is. Nor should they, in my opinion, since he's the producer, so he should be the one working the hardest and the longest. Plus, he has some catching up to do in the "time spent working" category. Elton wants to make sure that the others are involved. David gives him some sort of vague answer as only David can. Elton reiterates that the "rest of the team" should be "out there rolling because time is equipment." Time is equipment? What does that even mean? He could have said "Time is money" or even "Time with the equipment is money," but "Time is equipment"? I think Elton's losing it. I would too, if I were forced to meet with David one-on-one. Elton points out that David can't do it all himself, because it's "physically impossible." Then there's like thirty seconds of footage of the two of them shaking hands and standing up to leave the room, so I guess they were short on footage this week.
Danny and Kelley are sitting in the hallway talking. Danny says that David is in control but he's not telling them anything, and he feels like David is going to make the entire show because he won't tell them what the segments are about. In one shot of Danny, you can see what appears to be a bottle of liquor sitting in the chair with him. Well, David drives me to drink too. Danny continues bitching, saying that when he asks David about the show, David says they'll discuss it later. Kelley blurts out, "Guideline sheet," but Danny ignores her and continues rambling on about how just because David is the producer, that doesn't mean they will all agree with his topics. Then I guess the liquor kicks in, because Danny mellows out and says that he'll just "push the buttons" and do what David says. Kelley finally gets a chance to talk, but she makes no sense, because she just keep repeating, "It's his show" and "He's the producer." Finally, she manages to explain that they are like David's employees this week.
The roommates all gather in the living room for a meeting about the show. In an interview, Julie says that David is "maybe not working with the rest of us as much as he could" and that "'if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself' is the attitude he's adopting." At the meeting, David says that a lot of stuff is done, and that he has a blueprint, but it's not typed up, and that the topic is going to be "Why relationships don't last as long." As long as what? And why, when David said that, did they cut to a shot of Jamie? It wasn't like he gave a good reaction or something. David continues by saying that the other topic is going to be "interracial dating" and I don't really understand what those two topics have in common at all. Is he saying that relationships don't last as long as they did before interracial dating? David concludes, "What is the consensus about interracial?" I thought he was asking the group at large, but it turns out that he was just restating the show topic.
