Weird Museum. Jennie Garth shows a bunch of rich old women some stone sculpture, saying that while it's very very heavy and weighs a ton, with a "simple nudge..." it rocks back and forth. "So that's a paradox, isn't it?" No Jennie, that a big stone teeter-totter. She asks if anyone else wants to make stupid observations about the sculpture, and Nicky NotKatt raises his hand. He starts babbling about the representation of man vs. nature in the sculpture and therefore man vs. woman and therefore the artist has "infused it with this notion of male and female relationships." Jennie Garth says that she hadn't thought of that. Which is surprising, because it's similarly a total bullshit observation.
Street. Nicky NotKatt and Jennie Garth walk as he asks her if she talks about art all day to rich ladies. She "jokes" that she mostly just gets massages and goes to "fancy teas." Hee hee fucking hee. She actually spends most of her time doing "donor relations" for the museum. He says the market is dead right now and she says she loves the holidays and that there are tons of parties and people seem more reckless. He agrees. She wouldn't peg him as the reckless type and he lies, saying that he's going to a crazy party that night, despite the fact that he always wears a suit...and right now is wearing the ugliest fucking plaid scarf I've ever seen. Jennie says, "See, you did it again. You surprised me. I like surprises." You do? Okay, I got one for you. Hey Jennie, you know how you just signed on to rescue this show on Fox with your star power and tested drawing power with the younger generations? Surprise, you failed! He says he hasn't been able to get in touch with her lately and she says she's been "crazy busy." Yeah, busy humping tattooed guys in your pink bed while you listen to Nicky's messages on your machine. Jennie Garth points to a building, "This is me." No, Jennie, that's your building. She asks him out to dinner at 8:30 that night.
GiancarloOffice. Since he needs a prop to keep from letting the audience read the boredom and disdain in his eyes, Giancarlo plays with a digital camera as he explains to TES that the company did shitty this year and therefore the bonuses will be bad (despite the rumors otherwise.) He goes on to say that Nicky NotKatt will be getting no bonus at all. TES argues. Giancarlo lays out Nicky's losses and as TES picks up his moral center bat and starts swinging away on Nicky's behalf, Giancarlo gracefully shows us that the beautiful camera he's holding is a Nikon. He explains that Nicky is "simply too impulsive," but once he learns this lesson, he'll be more cautious and could even end up being a great trader. Man, he'd better hurry; he has about forty-five minutes to turn the whole year around. Giancarlo goes on to tell TES that he has to tell him, otherwise the hot-tempered wild kid from the street might say shit to Giancarlo that he won't be able to take back. TES protests. Giancarlo, who can't bring himself to look at TES at all, fops that he's "already ruining Christmas for enough people around [there]." Yes, you are. With a dandy-ish exclamation, Giancarlo gets the camera to work and take a picture of a "disgruntled" TES. Probably so he can add it to his Big Board of Actors to Never Work With Again.
