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.
They want you to think this is moments later, but David has had time to strip down to a tank top, so I'm guessing it's a while later. David asks everyone to gather in the living room. After they all get settled, David says that he has "something to go over real quick." In an interview, David says, "I'm holding myself back. I'm holding myself back." I told you he likes to repeat himself. ["He's like Johnny Two Times from GoodFellas, all 'I'm gonna get the papers, get the papers.'" -- Sars] David tells his roommates that he's "a little bit disappointed" and that he told them about his meeting, and they weren't there, and he doesn't understand what is going on, because from "the first show, the first understanding" was that noon to four is NOA-TV time "and that's all. From noon to four, there is no deviation." Kelley interrupts to say that they have all deviated from that in the past, but you know she means, "David, remember when I was producing the show and you were playing the piano for hours on end?" David says that when they were supposed to be in the office, they should be in the office. That's profound. Kelley says that she's not arguing with him, but he's wrong, which seems like a fairly argumentative statement. In an interview, Danny says that David sits there and lectures them about the same things he was doing three weeks before. Hey, I thought this was supposed to be their second show? So wouldn't David's goofing off have happened the week before? Unless, of course, Danny's interview was taped long after this little meeting. Hmm, interesting. Anyway, David says again that there is no deviation, and that they should be there from noon to four, and he doesn't care if they are twiddling their thumbs, they should be there. Not to diminish David's understandable anger over them not returning with the car, but maybe if he actually delegated some work for them to do, they wouldn't mind coming to the station for four hours. I'm just sayin'. In an interview, Danny says that David is the biggest hypocrite he's ever seen. David concludes by telling the roommates that they should "let [him] know what's up" because "it's [his] bag." Well, that's clear. As mud. Everyone starts talking, but Danny talks loudest, and says that he's not going to be lectured like that, and David is not his father, and nobody in that room is going to lecture him. I think the repeating disease is spreading. David says that it's work, and if they can't work four hours...Danny interrupts to say that nobody in the room has "room to talk on this issue" and "that's the end. Of it. Nobody." Some head-wagging and finger-waving accompany this speech. I yell at my television, "You go, girl!" before I remember that I'm old, and white, and straight, and out of touch with the current slang. Maybe I should join Matt in the 1920s.
