Episode Summary

EDIT
Passion Fish
AIRED:
Marcy develops a friendship with Buffy, the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar through yoga class, leaving Hunter feeling left out. The network begins pressing Rob to come up with a celebrity guest star to boost ratings, so he persuades a reluctant Marcy to ask Sarah Michelle to appear on the show. She agrees, provided that she can kiss Marcy's character. Hunter convinces Marcy that Sarah Michelle has a crush on her. Marcy tries to kiss her during an evening out, leaving Sarah Michelle extremely bewildered. She explains that she is not gay, and simply saw a lesbian storyline as an opportunity to garner an Emmy nomination. She backs out of the guest appearance because she is now uncomfortable around Marcy. Johnny begins paying an inordinate amount of attention to Marcy after Hunter convinces him that Marcy and Sarah Michelle are involved. Quentin accidentally hits an old woman with his car while racing back to the set with Courtney. Because there were no witnesses, Quentin is hailed as a hero for coming to the woman's aid. He gets caught up in his new hero image and offers a $100,000 reward to anyone who can bring the hit-and-run driver to justice. Although he ignores Courtney's pleas that he confess the truth, he finally decides to come clean because he feels his pig has lost respect for him. When he goes to visit the woman in the hospital, he discovers that she has pinned the crime on her nephew. She does not press charges, but now feels that she is entitled to the reward money. Kevin helps Rob through his writer's block by suggesting that he incorporate storylines from famous movies (which Rob had never seen before). After Rob hogs all the credit, Kevin complains that his boss does not take him seriously. Rob insists that he respects Kevin, but then turns Kevin's impassioned speech into a scene on the show.moreless

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Rob: I guess we're stuck with Tiffani-Amber Thiessen.
        Marcy: It's not Tiffani-Amber anymore. It's just Tiffani Thiessen.
        Rob: Ooh, watch out world! She dropped her middle name. Her career is gonna sky rocket!

      • Rob (reading network list): Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts. Are they insane?
        Kevin: Not Julia, from what I hear.

      • Hunter: Oh please. Look at her hair extensions.
        Marcy: Look at yours.

      • Courtney: I told you we'd be late! Why'd you have to try on all those Gap T's?
        Quentin: I told you, no two larges are the same.

      • Kevin: I can't believe Rob had the audacity to take credit for my 'Vertigo' idea.
        Dave: Good Lord, dude. Writers are like bloodsuckers.
        Kevin: Yeah. And I just gave a pint.

    • NOTES (1)

      • During the scene in which Hunter tries to convince Marcy that Sarah Michelle Gellar is gay, Courtney clearly says, "I read somewhere that she was in a relationship with Freddie Prinze Jr." This line is left intact in the closed captioning, but in the audio, Prinze's name is replaced with "a famous movie star." In the same scene, it appears that Courtney's response to Hunter's crack about Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman was also altered to make reference to the recent break-up of the couple's marriage.
