Meanwhile, the rest of HJ5 and Rudie are having problems negotiating a contract with a dull breakfast cereal company representative, because he won't let them be fun.

Angel looks at sheet of crossed out dance steps.
Angel: At least they liked (pauses) nope, that’s crossed out too.
G: Who ordered a brand new song with a side order of lyrics?
Baby: I did, I did.
