The episode opens just after Taggart hits Buddy in the gut. One of the dancers yells out, "They've hit, Buddy! Come on girls!" With that, the brawl, continues, now with the men in top hats and tails joining in the fray. We discuss several vignettes within the minute and as the episode comes to an end, we move to the commissary. Several actors are on their lunch break, still in costume from their various film projects. In the foreground, a man dressed as Hitler is eating a sandwich. His companion asks how many days he has left? He replies, "They lose me at the end of the bunker scene." At that moment, a man is thrown through the glass of the door to the commissary.
