Next morning. Warehouse. Bathroom. Danny stands around as Wes showers. Danny asks if Wren was any good. Wes responds that she was "quite impressive," and then says something about "thirty seconds." Danny laughs. Wes camera-talks, extremely tastefully, that Wren took him back to her apartment and that they did "something" they've been waiting to do off-camera the entire time he's known her. Over an aerial shot of the warehouse, Danny jokes about Wes giving her the best "thirty-five seconds of her life." Wes laughs. I VomitWeep!
Day. Building. Field. Buildings. Skyline. Ah, of course. Lacey in the phone room
having a conversation with talking to Ryan, her boyfriend and future father to her...adopted children. They talk about how the doc isn't done. Ryan wonders if that's Neh's job, as he understood it to be. Intercut with shots of Neh fucking around with a basketball while wearing a Halifax shirt (okay, that's settled -- the boy loves him some free clothing!) is Lacey wondering aloud to Ryan why Neh doesn't just edit the thing so that they can hear from their instructors what's wrong sooner and he can fix it. Ha. Lacey camera-whines that she and Rachel "sub-clipped" all the footage, so now Neh should just put it together. Suddenly, Neh is camera-talking about how everyone has days when they just can't work.
Dusk. Buildings. Sunset. David, doc dork, arrives. He finds Neh sleeping on the Big Round Bed of Gay. He wakes Neh up. Very professional, Neh! Well, I guess now that Neh has a HUGE HOLLYWOOD JOB, interning for the director of DIG! at the Austin Film Society, he has no need impress anyone else. Good work. David asks Neh where he is with the footage. "Nowhere," Neh responds. Welll, at least he's honest.
Editing room. They watch. Lacey is there, of course. Apparently, the piece is exactly the same as it was yesterday, according to Lacey, helpful as always. David says that it's "there," and that Neh just needs to cut it together. Isn't that what editing means? David passive-aggressively says that he'd hoped Neh would be further along, adding that he'll come back the next afternoon, and that he wants to see a lot of progress by then. Man, now that they gave the kids their clearly-undeserved trip, they blew their wad; they have nothing to hold over them anymore. Bad move, Paul. Bad move. Neh and Lacey sit there. Neh camera-talks that he's the only one working, and that while he made minor changes, David wasn't happy; now he's stressed out and doesn't know what to do. More sitting there. Finally, Neh leaves. Lacey then takes the reins, sitting at the console (ha, right), telling us that now Neh needs to work harder and show that he can "craft something amazing" with "his love and his skill." Uh, no he can't.
