Entourage: What About Bob?

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 20th 2006 11:12PM

Martin Landau(S03E11) It seems only fitting that the week that I fill in for Jonathan, the name of the episode is "What About Bob?" The only thing stranger would be if next week's episode was titled "The Return of Jonathan." (Just checked, it's not.)

While Drama goes to shoot his first scenes for the new Ed Burns flick, Ari, Bob, and Eric go to see a studio head about the Ramones movie, and Vince and Turtle spend the day trying to track down a pair of expensive, limited edition sneakers from a famous Japanese artist.

The meeting with the studio head does not go well, especially after Bob takes over the meeting, babbles, and then pulls a quarter out of the exec's ear. The exec passes, and Ari is pissed. Bob agrees with Ari and Eric that the next meeting, with Disney, Bob won't say a word, unless it's going badly.

But Ari lied. The meeting is with Universal, not Disney. While Ari and Eric (who doesn't know about the lie until it's too late) go to Universal in one car, Bob goes to Disney in another. He's embarrassed at the gate when there is no meeting scheduled and no such exec. Meanwhile, Universal loves the Ramones idea. Ari and Eric have clinched the deal, but they can't get hold of Bob on the cell phone...

Meanwhile, Burns keeps adding more dialogue and movement to Drama's big scene, and Drama is so nervous he decides to take Turtle's advice and "rub one out" in the trailer before the scene. One problem: he's still wearing his mic and the entire crew hears him going at it with himself. Drama does the scene perfectly, then Burns wants to get an "embarrassed" reaction shot. Drama doesn't know why he'd be embarrassed in the scene, until Burns whispers that they heard everything in the trailer. Drama looks embarrassed; Burns has his shot.

Ari and Eric finally get hold of Bob on a three way cell call. They tell Bob they sold the script to Universal, but Bob has a surprise for them: because he was shoved aside during negotiations, he went over to Warner Brothers and sold the script to a friend, who hates Vince. Ari and the gang are out of the picture. And that's bad news for Vince, who just spent $20,000 to get Turtle a customized pair of those damn gold sneakers from the artist himself.

Good episode. It sets up the last ep of the season very well. Vince and Eric aren't too happy with the way that Ari handled the Ramones deal and Bob. Will they replace him?

Quotes:

"Depends...you shooting the pilot or serving finger food?" - Turtle, after Drama asked if he was dressed well enough.

"Way to be a man of the people, Aquaman!" - fan, impressed that Vince didn't cut in line at the store to get the rare sneakers.

"Very well?!? You lost him at 'Sanka'." - Ari, after Bob (who asked the studio head for Sanka) said he thought the meeting went "very well."

"What, did he mug Liberace on the way over here?" - Ari, about old-fashioned white limo that Bob arrived in.

"Cybill Shepherd...tons of talent, no underpants." - Bob, about Shepherd's screen test at Disney.

"I just paid $20,000 for sneakers and I don't have a job." - Vince

Hey everyone,
I have made a trivia quiz for all episodes of Season 3 that have aired, including the latest 'What About Bob?'.
I was wondering if some people could do them and give me some feedback as the website is brand new. Are the questions too easy? too hard? I'd like some opinions from some fans of the show.
I've also got some quizzes about the cast and one about celebrity guest stars on the Entourage.
Take the quizzes then let me know what you think.

They need to come out w/ an ENTOURAGE soundtrack, with all the best songs from seasons 1-3. Whoever picks the music for each episode does a great job!

"Next time anxiety rears its ugly head, I'm just gonna beat it backdown." Funniest scene was Ed Burns directing Johnny Drama, and then frakkin' w/ him. One episode left? Too short a season. How many episodes a season does HBO order?

ah hem, the best quote by far was said by ari and it went something like "you cant fuck the prom queen until she knows that her best friend gave you a hand job behind the bleachers."

I thought Turtle was a whiny brat in this episode. Didn't he know his friend well enough to know he wouldn't cut in front of everyone? It was a PAIR OF SNEAKERS, for crissakes. If he wanted them that bad, he should've just stuck it out instead of acting all entitled. Of course, Vince just "enabled" his bad behavior at the end by getting him what he wanted (and then some).

Best quote by far...
Ari To Bob... "What if I told you that I had a 22 inch cock; is that something you might be interested in?"

Excellent episode. The whole Drama shooting the pilot has been such a great story line. The only bad thing is knowing there is only one episode left in the season.
