Flora natters on about her idea of a "leetle coffee shop, more trendy, where beautiful people are going to go." Dan makes a face, because he's been such a victim of lookism, you remember. She continues, "I want to go there because in the coffee shop next door, geeks are hanging out!" Dan, as a representative for geeks everywhere, takes umbrage. "That is so far from my priorities...if that is how we start this business, then let me have no part of this business. There's a difference between that being a reality and catering to it." Ooh, look at the stand-taker! Dan makes some more noises about shallow and energies and the like, and Flora's panties get all in a wad. She starts sputtering, "I'm not here to kiss anyone's butt, I'm here to make money!" All right, steamrollercakes, got it. The group gets stressed as rap music plays with the chorus being, "Make money money make money money money!" Dan makes an effort, suggesting they can start a club and give the money to charity. Flora rolls her eyes and chews a pen. She probably thinks that's bad for the soul too. She walks away and makes phone calls. Cyn is outraged and charges after her, telling her not to sulk and to come back to the group. Flora, passive-aggressive to the nth degree, says, "Whatever you decide to do, unless it's a coffee shop, I'm doing it for five months or whatever and then I'm gone." Selfish rat! Cyn says all right and then goes back to the group to report what Flora said. The tense music starts up as people drift away.
Jazzy music plays as Dan hunts for the Ocean Drive magazine offices. Ha ha, what a hoot, he's lost, and late! Oh, how charming. Hire that young man! Dan (finally!) sits in the office of the publisher, who tells him that the magazine is all about "fashion, celebrities, pretty people...it's the pretty world." Dan nods and grins like a born-again brown-noser, and accepts a story assignment about "Know Your Doorman" or some such nonsense, saying, "I really like this magazine and I want to be a part of it." Ace of Stupid Base start up with "It's a Beautiful Life." What? What about your priorities and the whole shallow-coffee-shop equals bad-coffee-shop-thing? Hypocrisy, thy name is Dan. Mike helpfully points out this fact that Dan has in fact "sunk himself into" the very thing he once professed to want to avoid. GOT IT. Mike congratulates Dan, saying, "Good for you," and Dan says demurely, "Oh no, it's good for ALL of us!" What a fucking socialist, NOT!
