The episode continues with the crane shot moving from the back lot of Warner Brothers and zooms toward a pair of sound stages. The music shifts from the Ballad of Rock Ridge to a 1940's era song and dance number. Inside the sound stage, dozens of male dancers are dressed in top hats and tails. They are spread across a multi-tiered set complete with fountains and a water moat. The playback starts and they begin to dance the French Mistake. On the closing line, singing, "You're doing the French Mistake," one of the dancers has his cane slip and he stumbles, ruining the take. Buddy Bizzare screams into his ear, "WRONG!!" He then attempts to show them how to do it. His final pirouette, however, has him plunging his leg into the pond.

Our guest today is Autumn Fischer. Autumn, being the true dynamo that she is, can be found every Monday through Friday 9PM-12PM on the Von Haessler Doctrine on WSB radio, on a pop culture podcast called Radio Labyrinth with Tim Andrews, and her newest podcast with Greg Russ called One Topic. She also loves to bake, crochet, and is currently raising two human children. Autumn is so happy to have been asked to speak on this particular part of the film. She hopes you enjoy her minutes!
