Episode Recap

Warren is ticked off that he can't get an audition for Gary Oldman's upcoming feature film version of Hamlet. Greg throws a party at The Frolic Room, and Gil and Dottie decide to invite Alison to improve network relations. In hopes of getting Gary's attention, Warren attempts to persuade Gil into letting him do Shakespeare on the show. At Greg's party, when Warren presses Gil hard about asking Alison for the okay, Gil tricks him and asks Alison if Warren can paint her nude. A fairly sloshed Warren never hears what the question was, but does hear Alison's mocking refusal, and decides to get even by taking a leak in her convertible -- which Greg witnesses. After a depressed Alison tells Gil about it the next day at work, Gil tries to get the guilty party to come clean, to no avail. In private, Greg tells Warren he saw what he did, and strongly advises him to apologize to Alison for making her cry. What Greg doesn't know is that Alison was crying because she feels like the bad guy around the set, something which she confesses to Dottie. Warren ignores Greg's advice, knocks 'em dead at Gary Oldman's audition, and wins the part. The trouble is, he needs to leave the show for three weeks to shoot in London, and, since he's a major part of all the episodes during that time, he has to get Alison's permission. Rather than ask for a leave of absence, Warren goes to her and brags that he was the one who piddled in her car, hoping she'll suspend him for three weeks. Alison, who already heard about the role from Warren's agent, opts to be the good guy, for once. She forgives him, and lets him off the hook. What she doesn't let him off is the show.
