Entourage: Season 08, Episode 05 – Motherf*cker (Ful Video)
Episode Summary: All the troubles of episodes past are seemingly over as Shauna coaches Vince for a Vanity Fair interview. Turtle’s there too, just ’cause, and suggests Vince throw in a plug for his new restaurant venture. Then the boys meet Sophia, the VF writer, some lovely English lass with a very proper accent. “I’m entirely yours,” Vince tells her. Uh huh.
Eric, Scott and Johnny try to do damage control on the Andrew Dice Clay situation, in that there is no situation since he’s not on Johnny’s Bananas anymore. But their pow wow is cut short when E reveals he has a meeting with Sloane’s ex-stepmom or some such woman of tangential relation. Turns out Melinda wants E to rep her. Awk-ward.
In Ari’s world, Mrs. Ari marches the kids (who have aged rapidly since last season) into his office — they’re going to Disneyland! Except his daughter doesn’t want to, and now Babs doesn’t want Ari to go either — Dana Gordon is due in for a meeting about a Taylor Lautner film. Awk-ward!
Back at the interview, Vince is not-so-subtlely hitting on Sophia, who asks about addictions, his relationship with his father and other light, flirty conversational topics. Shauna isn’t impressed with Vince’s flirting. Neither am I — dude should be so much smoother than he is. Shauna calls the interview, but not before Vince tries to ask Sophia out a couple dozen times.
During a taping of a Johnny’s Bananas episode, Jamie Kennedy critiques Drama’s reading, which of course Drama doesn’t take kindly to. Everyone wants Dice back, no one more so than Drama, who’s considering giving Dice some of his salary. Drama shows up at Dice’s apartment to try to talk him back on the show. Conveniently, Dice’s son just found out he got into Princeton, so now dad has to find some source of income. Drama offers to even the score by giving Dice some of his salary. It’s all very kind, but Dice isn’t having any of it and thinks the network will cave. Drama? He’s not as hopeful.
Disappointments abound at Ari’s office — first, Ari announces the kids are going to the zoo instead of Disneyland; then Lautner doesn’t show, disappointing Ari’s daughter; then Ari’s son reveals to Dana that Mrs. Ari hates her; then Dana cuts the meeting short and walks out of the office.
Trying to make amends for his own meeting one awry, Vince calls Sophia to let her know that Shauna wasn’t happy with the interview. Come to my hotel, he suggests, no funny business, I swear. Sophia relents.
E meets with Melinda, and talk of business turns to talk of their exes. She makes him admit that he’s not over Sloane. “I’m moving forward,” he tells himself, though no one believes it. Are we taking bets on an Eric/Melinda hookup yet?
Ari ends up taking the kids back to Mrs. Ari instead of Disneyland, the zoo or even a Bobby Flay restaurant. Mrs. Ari gives him a verbal lashing for always putting work first, and ends the conversation with this stunner: She’s filing for divorce. For once, Ari is speechless.
Drama begs producer Phil for help getting Dice back on board. Phil tells Drama that the network is behind him, but Dice? Not so much. And now, Drama’s considering walking.
Vince and Sophia meet again and talk about Carl Ertz. She somehow connects Vince’s compassion for Ertz with some emotional (mis)connection to his dad. Vince tells her that his dad walked out on the family and it’s because he was raised by his mother and grandmother that he has an appreciation and respect for women (er, Seasons 1-7 would refute that). He then asks her out for a drink again, and she turns him down again. So respectful!
Ari, wasted, calls Dana. Shockingly, Dana offers to keep him company. She’s lonely, he’s lonely. A match made in Hollywood heaven.
Oh but wait! It’s Melinda and Eric keeping each other company. Naked! In bed! That did not take long at all. E’s phone rings. Please let it be Sloane. Yep! She’s pissed that he didn’t call her to ask about repping Melinda. Turns out the whole meeting was Melinda’s way of getting back at Terrance. E was played! But Melinda still wants him to represent her, so at least Eric will be getting commission.
