Piz returns to the room, guitar in hand, to find Desmond gone. The Super-Special Puppy-Dog Eyes Of Unbridled Earnestness On Loan From Darling Sammy look like they might cry.
In the sparsely-populated cafeteria, Wallace is asking Veronica how she's dealing with helping Piz. Two Wallace-Veronica scenes in the first three acts? This makes me nervous that Percy Daggs is next on the list for a baseball bat to the cranium. Don't smell bread, Percy! Wallace then gives her shit about Piz's "puppy-dog eyes," and I swear I didn't remember that when I made my joke, but it makes my theory of a planned crossover a lot more credible. Veronica confesses that it's weird that Piz is acting so normal, which Wallace only-half-jokingly opines is about her ego, and when Veronica tries to get off the subject, he keeps giving her shit until she threatens to taser him, and he laughs. Not sure why.
Mac has finished, and tells Logan that the site is modular -- he can sub in "boobs, legs, kittens, whatever." Logan asks a question about income models, and Mac admits that's not her forte, but says she knows someone who can help. Logan asks if she can call this someone, and Mac, if you're so torn about calling him that you have to stare at Logan for five thousand years, maybe YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE BROUGHT HIM UP IN THE FIRST PLACE. But she calls, and gets through.
Piz shows up at the party, and Desmond, who's now fully holding court, excitedly makes a couple more incorrect stabs at his name before yelling, "Dude! You're in time!" Promo-style, he announces that they're going skinny-dipping, to appreciative hoots from the crowd. Which is understandable, again because of the PAUL RUDD! Nevertheless, the Super-Special Puppy-Dog Eyes Of Diminishing Earnestness On Loan From Darling Sammy close in frustration.
On the beach, Desmond unsteadily gives a speech about the key to skinny-dipping being spiritual nudity as well as physical. I think. If I got that wrong, you'll forgive me for being a little distracted here. Desmond disrobes and runs into the water, and some guy in front of Piz takes off his tank top and...oh, that's a woman. I got confused because it looks like she does lat pull-downs for a living. Anyway, Desmond yells that it's freezing, and then a spotlight shines on the scene, as Sacks has made an appearance. Aside from Piz, the crowd disperses as Desmond yells, "Oh my God, I don't recommend this!" Hee. I'm thinking even his spirit needs a roaring fire and a robe and slippers. He gets out and yells to Sacks that he should turn off the light. "It really kills the mood." Also killing the mood are the Super-Bitchy Puppy-Dog Eyes Of Dwindling Hero Worship On Loan From Darling Sammy, off of which we go to commercial.
