Cut to Heather telling Eric she doesn't like him. Eric then goes on and on about how generous he is and how, for example, he lets people use his phone whenever they want, but then they abuse it. Cut to Heather chatting away on a black cordless phone. Eric babbles some more about how he gets taken advantage of because he's so nice. The phone rings. It's not for Eric.
Julie's one-on-one. She tells us that Eric and Heather's relationship is like a roller coaster, and you can't get too involved or watch it, and like that same roller coaster, it's great when it's up and terrible when it's down.
"Peter Gunn" plays in the background. Shots of Eric and Heather are intercut with scenes of fish fighting and of the dog and cat, who are SO CUTE (and that's my only foray into crazy animal-ladydom today), fighting. WHOA! Did everyone catch that there? Did everyone get how Eric and Heather are not getting along, just like certain animal types in nature?
Anyway. Eric accuses the cat of knocking over a bottle of his vitamins. He announces, "The cat will die tonight." Heather tells Eric calmly that whatever way Smokey goes out, Eric will go out. Frankly, I'd be scared of anyone who's angry and speaks that calmly. You know they will kick your ass. Eric starts joking that they're gonna have a scrapper. Heather tells Eric not to fuck with her cat. Eric starts detailing how he's going to torture her cat. ["But in a nice way, right?" -- Niki] I sure hope that's still funny Eric, when you're in hell.
Next shot is of Eric and Heather physically fighting. It looks like Eric's got the best of her until Heather turns the tables and gets him by the neck and demands that he apologize. Oooh. I don't mean to be petty and puerile, but HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAH!!
Heather's ironing. She tells Julie, who's listening sympathetically, that from hereon out, she just needs to do everything herself and stop waiting for other people to do it for her -- and that includes her music. Oh, Heather, you're so cute! And you don't blame other people for your shit! After almost ten seasons of this show I realize what a prize you are. Shots of Heather rapping are intercut as she talks about her frustrations with the record biz. Heather says the reason she doesn't care about anything else right now is because she's got all the music stuff on her mind along with paying her rent and trying to live.
Oh GOD. Andre and the boys of Staindance are in the editing room cutting the video. Andre says that he hates videos because they're such a farce, and they so obviously try to project an image that the group does not match. You mean like the image that Dead Can't Dance is trying to project -- like they're musicians? Anyways. Andre tells us how the aim of the video was to show the musicians as they really were. We see bits and pieces of the video, which is your standard long-haired-rockers-with-no-money-in-the-city stuff, except there is one part where Andre's neighbor spits out his dentures and sucks them back in, which is cool, in a twelve-year-old boy kind of way.
