Jonathan is asked by Lakshmi, the owner of an Indian restaurant, for
his help. She suspects her husband, Vikram, is cheating on her. She is
convinced there is another woman. When Jonathan spots the man going
into a diner, he follows him inside. Our amateur detective discovers
Vikram is solving the same crossword puzzle he is pretending to do, as
well. As Jonathan asks the unsuspecting Vikram about an answer, he
takes the opportunity to strike a conversation. Vikram is a sad man,
indeed. He has lost his job as a limousine driver, and his poetry is
rejected as well.
George is seen trying to finish his column for an incoming issue of the
magazine. Kathryn Joyner, the administrator, has bad news. The people
at the top have been rethinking how to save money. One of the solutions
is to get rid of several columns that appear, including George, who is
shocked when he hears about it.
Ray, seen at the bar where he hangs out, is in a pensive mood. When
Jennifer walks in, she demands he buys her a large drink. Ray is turned
off by the heavy drinking woman, so he tells her, politely, he has no
desire to see her again. Ray's latest comic hero has gotten the
attention of Kevin Bacon, the actor, who is thinking of developing into
a film. They have agreed to meet to discuss the possibilities.
Unfortunately, Ray is not happy with what Kevin suggests to play the
super hero with a large penis. Jennifer, who had promised to stop
drinking, comes in at the end of Ray's encounter and she proceeds to
berate Ray, who accidentally, hits Kevin Bacon in the nose.
Jonathan goes back to Lakshmi to tell her about his findings about
Vikram. He tells her the man is innocent, but she does not want to
believe. As far as she is concerned, she will not pay Jonathan the
money due to him.
Jonathan had asked George to come and address the class he is teaching.
Before that, he had attempted to tutor the lovely Diane, and when he
gets a bit romantic, George arrives. Jonathan asks George, who is
having problems with his driving, to hire Vikram to do the job. When
they go to the diner, they find Vikram has a gun and in a desperate
attempt announces a hold up. George does a great job changing Vikram's
mind, but as the police has been summoned, they leave the restaurant
just in time, before they arrive.
Tammy Sagher and Jonathan Ames, the creator of the series, co-wrote the
screenplay. It was directed by Troy Miller, who gets the cast to do the
great job they always do. Jonathan Schwartzman, Zach Galifianakis and
Ted Danson are the sole reason for watching. Guest star included a good
Kevin Bacon, not a man to see on television often. Mary Kay Place,
Sarita Choudhury, Ajai Naidu, and Kristen Wiig, contributed to the fun.
