JT (Tim Daly) sits in an office or classroom, delivering a lecture to some student writers about how fucked up he used to be, and how he blew all his writing money on drugs. Yeah, you're a former bad-ass. We get it, James Frey. JT continues his pretentious blatherings until Vinnie Delpino and another guy stroll in. JT thinks that they're new members of the Guild until they start beating the shit out of him and practically carry him out of the room. None of the students moves to help.
The guys deliver JT to a car parked outside. Apparently, JT has run up some more gambling debts. Christopher is offering to help JT out if he will help them write a horror movie. JT asks whether accepting the deal means that he is "100\% well," meaning that he won't owe anything. Christopher makes fun of JT trying to use the lingo, as if Christopher isn't doing the same exact thing with the move lingo. Anyway, Christopher's big idea is "Saw meets Godfather 2 -- proven track record, both genres." And you know? He's kind of right. Christopher lays out the plot, which is too awesome not to include in its entirety: "Young wiseguy, assassin, gets betrayed by his people. They whack him, leave his body parts in dumpsters all around the city. Long story short, he is put back together, by science, or maybe it's supernatural. And he gets payback on everyone who fucked him over, including the cunt he was engaged to. She was getting porked by his boss the night the hero was killed." I think Christopher needs to pay a visit to Melfi, because he clearly still has issues. Christopher says JT needs to attend a meeting tomorrow at the Bing, and by "needs to," Christopher means that JT will be there or suffer some serious consequences. They toss JT out onto the sidewalk, where his students are just exiting the building. JT yells at them for not coming to his aid. One girl, wearing a top hat, just gives him a dirty look. Oh, those writers. They are so quirky and pretentious. And inveterate gamblers.
