Ted Ilan realizes that Son of Sam and Elia stuck him in a row with the yet-to-board Marcel, and they all make faces about it. Assholes. Marcel arrives at the gate, and my eagle-eyed Head Cheese spotted that he's totally wearing a Point Reyes Original Blue tee-shirt! That's totally awesome, and I'm dying to know where he got it. I mean, I know where to get those tee-shirts, I just want to know how and why he came upon it. Original Blue is such a Northern California institution. Elia continues to badmouth Marcel to us. I love how Marcel's sideburns are now sculpted to a fine Kirkian point.
Oh, god -- do I really have to recap this continued fakery? Okay, so they are supposedly in-flight and we are made to think this because we get stock flying jet footage that is employed every time someone travels on television or in the movies. The flight attendant comes by with a Roy Yamaguchi meal for them, which coincidentally enough, seems to come with a printout of Yamaguchi's bio. I'm not slamming Yamaguchi by any means, because I have the utmost respect for him and his food, but all of this is so very, very fake. Marcel tells us that sitting next to Ted Ilan is "a little bit awkward" after watching the episodes and seeing him "talk a little bit of smack." "A little bit"?? Marcel, you are far too kind. Ted Ilan tells us even with the distance of the two-month hiatus, he's really sick of Marcel. Well, we're even because I am really sick of you.
