Take a look at the stickiest of the sticky, and see the impact these much needed items have on our daily routines.
When Hannah gets an extra ticket to a celebrity tennis tournament, Lilly and Oliver battle for the ticket. Who will win out?
While the guys grab breakfast at Urth, E catches the eye of a hot waitress – too bad Drama calls him out for being incapable of “unemotional sex.” When E can’t name a conquest he didn’t pursue a relationship with, Drama throws down a $5,000 bet that Turtle can hustle a one-night stand before E musters the nerve. Vince matches his brother’s action, taking E under his wing at the Mondrian pool, while Drama and Turtle peruse the online meat market of Craigslist personals. Ari, on the other hand, prefers to gamble with his son’s future, hiring a private investigator to help blackmail the Briar Country Day School’s headmaster, Andrew Preston, into matriculating his kid. Unfortunately, Preston turns out to be a model citizen, reducing Ari to begging on the headmaster’s doorstep. Glad to have taught Ari a lesson in humility – and snagging an industry job for his own son in the process – Preston withdraws his barring of the Golds. “The things we’ll do for our children,” Ari says.
At the Mondrian, Vince attracts a pair of British girls, but just as E starts to settle in with one named Heather, he runs into Sloan, sending him into his characteristic relationship tailspin. Turtle encounters some complications, too, when the hot girl he meets on Craigslist turns out to have a stuffed-animal fetish and a man-sized bunny costume to match. In the end, it’s just a little too freaky for Turtle, but Drama opts to take the furry romp as a consolation prize for his lost bet. E breaks down and calls Sloan to “talk about us” but gets back in the game after she tells him she’s met someone else. Hanging up, he heads to Heather’s room at the Mondrian, and when she asks him what he’d like to do for the evening, he replies, “What would you say if I said let’s just blow off the restaurant and order in?” Catching the green light, he closes the door behind him and wins five grand for Vince – if he can keep his hands off the telephone, that is.
Are the rings of Saturn a real celestial phenomenon or merely a cosmic Illusion? Technology allows the experts to get closer to the furthest planet visible to the naked eye. Old questions are answered and new ones arise. Does Saturn hold the key to Earth’s weather and will one of its moons supply us with all the oil we’ll ever need?
Vince has finally landed some work with ‘Lost in the Clouds,’ but E threatens to derail the “package deal” when he calls Ari to boot Walsh off the pic. Ari tricks E into meeting the director at his office to make nice – which actually happens when Walsh apologizes for blaming the ‘Medellin’ trailer’s leak on E. As it turns out, his editor’s betrayed girlfriend uploaded the video to exact revenge. E and Walsh shake hands, but Ari finds himself mired in another sour relationship when Lloyd’s breakup with his boyfriend, Tom, leaves the assistant too heartbroken to work. With bungled schedules and general chaos shrouding the desk outside his office, Ari takes the logical approach: He visits Tom at work to mend the breach. Tom says Lloyd cheated on him, but Ari covers his assistant’s tracks by swearing they’d been together on the night in question. Tom buys it, but when Ari calls Lloyd to deliver the good news, he includes a warning: “I love liars, but I hate cheaters.”
Drama and Turtle have concocted a scam of their own, buying into a shady investment with Turtle’s cousin Ronnie, whose father’s obsession with Sandy Koufax has unearthed some lucrative info. Apparently, Koufax hasn’t left his house in weeks, meaning the game jersey Turtle, Drama and Ronnie intend to buy at auction will skyrocket in value after his imminent death. Ronnie backs out at the last minute, unwilling to profit on the demise of his father’s hero, so Drama picks up his end of the $62k tab. As Drama collects the goods, the auctioneer informs him that Koufax couldn’t appear to sign the uniform because his schnauzer, which had been sick for weeks, just died. But Koufax, thank God, is “healthy as a clam.”
While meeting with Dana Gordon about ‘Lost in the Clouds,’ E realizes – thanks to Walsh’s argumentative tactics – that life is too short to deal with the director throughout another shoot. Later, he tells Vince and Ari he’ll take to the sideline this time around, but he also warns Vince off the film. Considering his manager’s advice, Vince decides to go ahead with the project. “There we go,” Ari says. “I’ll have a $2 million advance check cut today. How horrible.”
Miley’s competitive nature is at it again! However, in order to pull off this caper, she must first deceive Roxy so that she can save Hannah’s fans.
Scorched by their proximity to the sun, Mercury and Venus are hostile worlds; one gouged with craters from cosmic collisions and the other a vortex of sulfur, carbon dioxide and acid rain. Prime examples of planets gone awry, do they serve as a warning for ominous scenarios that might someday threaten Earth?
