In keeping with the Lori theme, a montage of various foodstuffs available on the streets of New York City follows. Pretzels, hot dogs, fresh fruit. Lori, Mike, and Rachel explore the Arista building, specifically looking for the recording studio. Once there, they meet Nicky, a music editor, who doesn't throw them out or tell them to get lost. I wonder whether that's because of the cameras, hmm? Also, Nicky looks like he could have played a band member in the recent VH-1 movie about Def Leppard. In an interview, Lori tells us that Nicky is writing a song and looking for a vocalist. Nicky plays the song for them, and Mike says that he likes it. Lori asks whether Nicky is looking for a known person or any artist. Nicky says that Arista has an open policy, and is always looking for people. Lori volunteers to sing, and Rachel backs her up, saying that she's really good. Nicky agrees to listen to Lori's tape, but you know he's thinking that she's totally going to suck.
The roommates mill around outside the Arista building. I really hope that this was all filmed on the same day, because Adam is wearing yet another turtleneck sweater (black). In an interview, Malik explains that they are supposed to be working as a street team. The roommates go to an HMV store to promote an in-store with Koffee Brown that night. Quarrel and Nicole stand outside and yell to people about the event. Mike, Kevin, and Malik stand inside and look at some chick in a magazine. Lori and Rachel stand inside and complain that they don't know what they are supposed to be doing. I'll allow that it's possible the Turtleneck Twins gave them less-than-clear instructions, but Quarrel and Nicole don't seem to have a problem figuring it out. Quarrel and Nicole hand out flyers. The boys go outside and don't do much promoting at all. In an interview, Malik explains that everyone was tired, hungry, and cold. Rachel stands there, clutching a bunch of flyers. Rachel voice-overs that she felt dumb standing there. They're flyers! You hand them out! How hard is that to figure out? Quarrel cracks me up by yelling, "It's not tea black! It's Koffee Brown!" Rachel heads back inside. Malik also sneaks back inside. Meanwhile, Quarrel is promoting her little heart out.
