Kelley and Melissa are standing outside. Melissa is furious, and asks why David is so "belligerent." In a confessional, Melissa does some serious neck-rolling and she says that she's not going to cater to David's attitude anymore. Melissa tells Kelley that David is not there for the decisions, but that he is only there to confront decisions already made and shoot them down, which has nothing to do with his musical responsibilities.
Back in the conference room, David says they should just agree not to use the book. Does he seriously think anyone is on his side here? No one has been agreeing with him thus far, but somehow he thinks that they are all in agreement on this issue, save Melissa. Julie tells him they can't agree to anything until they've all talked about it. Matt tries to reason with David, saying that he knows David is passionate about his music but he's going on the defense. For about six seconds there, I liked Matt. Danny suggests that they all try to be professional. David says he is being professional. Oh yeah, swearing a blue streak is so professional. I hear they just added a new course at Harvard Business School called "Swearing: Effective Uses and Practices." David is still talking, but it's so fast and at such a high pitch that I can't possibly tell you what he's saying. Danny says that David was not being professional. David says, "Tomato, to-mah-to, move on." That reminds me of Ally McBeal, when Fish will do something really offensive and then say, "Bygones," and expect everyone to just get over it. It's not that simple. And hey, tomato -- shout-out to Sars? ["Between that and my public-access past, you have to wonder." -- Sars]
