1. I'm not hip. I'm a classic. (00:30-02:48)
Brian's office. Two guys who look like twins (and are named Bob and Brad, no less) present the Schulmann Shoe layout to him. But the campaign they came up with sucks in the worst way. Brian's annoyed.
Enter Kip Thomas, who's new at the agency and joins Brian, Brad and Bob to learn a thing or two. And what do you know, Kip saves the day by having a way better idea how to sell shoes than these other two guys. Kip's slogan: I'm not hip. I'm a classic. Well, it's a boring shoe, what do you expect. Anyway, Brian's pleased and Kip's got the job.
2. Party coming up (05:05-06:26)
Babylon. Brian announces 'P-Town-Party' is coming up and he's already made reservations for the three of us, referring to Ted, Emmett and himself. Michael wants to go, too, but Ted and Brian remind him that he's in a relationship now. They joke around a bit more, only Emmett doesn't join in. As soon as the guys hit the dancefloor, he calls his 'See-the-Light'-buddy and cries for help.
3. You can count on me (08:24-11:33)
Back at Brian's office. Kip's back, happy about the fact that Brian will use his idea for the shoe ad. They talk some more about work and at some point, the conversation gets loaded with innuendos...now, how could such a thing happen? Why not just put the dialogue here so you can see for yourself:
Kip: "So Mr Ryder told me you're really gonna use my ideas for the shoe ad."
Brian: "I'll steal anything good and put my name on it."
Kip: "That's great. Although Bob and Brad aren't too happy about it."
Brian: "Well, people with no talent usually aren't when someone with real talent comes along."
Kip: "Yeah, I hear you're pretty talented yourself. In fact, you have a reputation."
Brian: "I do?"
Kip: "For being the best account exec in the company."
Brian: "Yeah. That, too."
Kip: "And that's why I asked if I could work with you."
Brian: "I thought Ryder assigned you."
Kip: "Yeah, I, uh... lied."
Brian: "Come here for a second, I wanna show you something."
Kip walks up to Brian who's showing him another presentation he's working on.
Brian: "This is a new campaign we're starting for Liberty Air. I want you on the team."
Kip: "Oh my God, that's... that's fantastic. Wow. How can I ever thank you?"
Brian: "By doing a good job."
Kip: "You can count on it."
Kip turns and begins to leave. He then stops, turns again and walks back to Brian.
Kip: "I just want you to know that you can... you can count on me for anything. Day or night."
Brian: "Well, you really are going for the gold watch."
Kip (still getting closer and starting to touch Brian): "I mean it. 'Cause I think you're really, really amazing."
Brian: "What are you doing?"
Kip, backing off: "Oh shit. I'm sorry. Uhm... I didn't mean to... look, I don't know what I was thinking."
Brian: "Yeah, well, whatever it was, you thought wrong. Because I'm the one who makes the first move."
And with that, Brian locks the door, shuts the blinds and fucks Kip on his desk, just like that. Some visuals to, uhm, help you get the idea.
First, there's Brian's cool condom trick: he flips it into the air, catches it with it teeth and rips it open.
The, the fucking.
4. Concerning sex at work (11:33-12:31)
In the Jeep. Michael can't believe it: you fucked him in your office? And Brian, as usual, is so very nonchalant about it: he was the best thing to come across my desk in a long time. Ha!
Brian: "Don't tell me no one's ever had a Big O at the Big Q."
Michael: "I wouldn't know."
Brian: "Well, I would. First hand, and I mean first hand experience."
Michael: "Are you saying...?"
Brian: "You remember last Christmas when I came to pick you up and you were setting up for Santa's workshop?"
Michael: "Not Santa, dont tell me you fucked Santa!"
Brian: "Nah... even I wouldn't do that. I'm not into fat. His elf!"
Michael: "You didn't!"
Brian: "What he lacked in feet he made up for in inches."
Michael: "I don't wanna know. But... better be careful. I mean, doing it in your office might be a little high risk, even for you."
Brian: "He asked for it, he came onto me. I gave him a great opportunity and a great fuck. He has no complains."
Uh oh....am I the only one with a bad feeling?
5. It's business (19:01-21:30)
Brian and Justin at the loft. Awwwww. Cute interactions here.
Brian: "How long have you known me? I don't do dates."
Justin: "It's not a date. I just wanted to know if you wanna come to Babylon with me."
Brian: "The answer is no. I have work to do."
Justin: "Since when has that ever stopped you?"
Brian: "I thought you were studying for your SAT's."
Justin: "Dancing helps me concentrate. Seriously! It releases certain endorphines. So that I can study harder and for longer periods of time."
Brian: "Hm. So Babylon's good for your health. Yeah, that's a new one."
*The door buzzes*
Justin: "I'll get it!"
Brian: "I'll get it. Yeah?"
Kip, via intercom: "Hey, it's Kip."
Brian: "It's none of your business."
Brian: "And it is business. Believe it or not."
Justin: "I guess I'll just have to find someone else to dance with. It shouldn't be a problem."
Brian: "And you can study longer and harder."
They both step out, Justin takes the stairs while Brian waits for Kip to arrive with the elevator. Justin waits on the stairs, though, and watches as Kip and Brian enter the loft.
Once inside, Kip starts to gush how awesome the loft is, d'oh. While Brian fetches his stuff he needs to work on the presentation, Kip takes a look around. He doesn't come far, though. Next thing Brina sees is Kip, lying on his bed in all his naked glory (?)
Well. They both agree to get started. Whatever:P
6. You're not ready (30:02-31:12)
Back to Brian at work (my, he's really busy this episode). He's walking out of his office when Kip arrives. Looks as if Brian's attracting stalkers like nothing, eh?
Kip: "Hey, how's it going?"
Brian: "I got a meeting outside the office in twenty minutes."
Kip: "I hope it's not like our meeting outside the office."
Brian: "What? Oh."
Kip: "So when do you wanna get together?"
Brian: "Ask Cynthia to check my schedule, maybe after the Schulmann meeting."
Kip: "I meant for dinner."
Brian: "I don't know. I'm late."
Kip: "Listen, before you go, there's something I wanna ask you."
Brian: "You have thirty seconds."
Basically, Kip says a manager's position is up and he wants Brian to recommend him. Brian tells him he's talented but still has a lot to learn: I admire your ambition, but you need the experience to back it up. Give it time. Kip doesn't want to wait. He points out that they'll give the job to someone else. But Brian sticks to his opinion: I told you: you're not ready.
7. We're all gay (34:40-36:32)
Babylon. Brian, Justin, Ted and Michael at the bar. Brian can't believe what Ted and Michael did: on their quest to stop Emmett's brainwashing, they set him up with the infamous porn star Zack O'Tool. The best friends one could ask for, eh?
Justin: "Zack O'Tool is supposed to have a twelve inch dick."
Michael: "How do you know who Zack O'Tool is?"
Justin: "Everybody knows who the 'manrammer' is."
Michael: "Even schoolboys?"
Ted: "Oh sure, that's part of the curriculum. Gay porn stars 101."
Brian: "Yeah, and here's the first lesson: those that can, do; and those that can't, watch porn."
Brian then spots a possible trick and wanders off to the backroom. And guess who's there, too: Kip! Kip is high as a kite, but he's got a more or less reason to celebrate: the job he wanted was given to someone else. Aw. And what do you know, he thinks it's all Brian's fault. I hate Kip, btw, in case you haven't noticed yet :P
Kip: "You owed it to me."
Brian: "Why, because I fucked you? You weren't that good."
Kip: "I'm gay, you're gay." What a stunning revelation, Kip. Just, wow.
Brian: "Yeah. We're all gay. Do you think that means I'll do you some favour?"
Kip, whining: "How else are we supposed to get ahead if we don't help each other?"
Brian: "Same way that I did, by helping yourself. Yeah, and by doing your job better than anyone else. If you can, do that, and trust me, they won't give a shit where you stick your dick. And don't mix that with booze. There. I did you a favour."
8. Brian's fucked (41:08-42:39, end scene)
For this episode's final scene, we're back where we started: in Brian's office. Bob and Brad are there, too. Kip isn't: he called in sick, says one of the guys. Suddenly, Ryder comes and asks for a chance to talk with Brian. Brian dismisses Bob and Brad.
Brian: "What's up?"
Ryder: "You tell me. Legal just received this fax from Kip Thomas's lawyer. He says that you promised to help Mr Thomas's career in exchange for sexual favours. And that when he, uh, complied, you rescinded your offer."
Brian: "Well, that's complete and utter bullshit."
Ryder: "Well, bullshit or not, he's suing you and us for sexual harassment."
Oh shit with a capital S.
What now, Brian?
End of episode 113, but I feel the need to tie up some loose ends and give you some more information about other stuff going on. Michael and Ted's plan didn't work out; Emmett resisted Zack O'Tool's huge... talent and is now sure he wants to change his sexual orientation and find his 'true self' with the help of the 'See the Light'-group. Meanwhile, Lindsay and Mel kept on fighting, and eventually, Mel had a fling with another woman she met at some boring baby shower. Lindsay found out and now, the women's relationship is in serious trouble.
