Ready for another try, kids? Ready to see if The $treet, which fared poorly in the ratings the first time around, can do better? Ready to see if $tee can hold on? Yeah, me too. Let's go...
Previously on The $treet. TES got a blowjob from Alex. Rickman put his erection against the butt of his boss, the The Rocke-who, and was not immediately fired. She demeaned his penis size instead, because, you know, it's Wall Street and that's what we do here. Replay of the opera/sex bit with Nicky NotKatt and Donna. Timmy-Fell-Down-A-Well freaked out in Giancarlo's office. Giancarlo told Timmy that he had big balls, 'cause again, we're on Wall Street, baby, and Wall Street is about men and all things manly. TES told Alex not to come home "tonight." Goldman met Xena.
So The Worst Song Ever Written plays: "Ten...Kiss me on the lips. Nine...Run your fingers through my hair," as TES and Alex make love, (not money.) Number two of two episodes begun with sex. Hm. Just coincidence, I'm sure. So the sex is "passionate" and Alex disappears down his body, ready for blowjob number two when...Oh, the trickery! The lights change and the radio alarm comes on and TES is alone. Wacky! He hits his alarm with authority and we're off.
TES walks down the crowded street (same New-York-Is-A-Busy-And-Yet-Paradoxically-Lonely-Place shot as last week) looking more like a boy going to "Take your sons to work day" than an actual adult trader. Lobby. He swings through the doors only to be confronted by FiancéeAlex. She needs "underwear," a word that stops the lobby-walkers cold. He tells her to call him later to discuss things. The Rocke-who asks how Alex is, and she says she's been staying on her friend's "smelly futon" (a high-income banker can't afford a hotel room?), and that her parents' wedding-hall deposit has gone down the drain. She walks away and The Rocke-who very carefully steps up to her mark right in front of the camera and bitches, "Have a nice day." And...crazy, sleek new intro which I guess they didn't have time to finish by the pilot. Bridgette Wilson is part of the cast now, I guess. Jennifer Connelly gets a "with..." on her credit and Goldberg an "and...." Go kids, with your bad selves...and your good agents. Go.
Goldberg leads the morning meeting again. I guess that's his thing. It's "Monday" morning and he says that the foreign markets are good because "the Japanese are fans of our new President." Ha. They made this a little too early. Instead, right now, the Japanese, along with the rest of the world, are going, "Huh? Crazy mixed-up Americans." ["That's the truth. The three Canadians here are completely riveted to CNN from 10 AM until about 3 PM, whereupon the screeching gets to be too much and we put on a Dr. Dre album instead. Anyway." -- Wing Chun] Goldberg stammers and asides his way through his lines with Goldbergian aplomb before handing it off to the slicked-back-haired and sunglassed Giancarlo.
