Ari wakes Eric with a phone call to remind him that tonight is the all-important opening night for Vince's movie. Immediately after Eric hangs up, Emily unexpectedly drops off fan mail, but with ulterior motives. Drama introduces the guys to his latest lady friend back at the house and then they discuss their plans for the evening over breakfast at a diner. Vince's major work for the day is a stop at Big Boy's Neighborhood, a local radio show. As a result of the appearance, Vince secures a date for himself with Justine Chapin. While everybody gets ready for the night's activities, Ari video conferences with Eric to tell him that matinée numbers for Vince's movie have been "less than stellar" because it is in direct competition with the latest Pixar feature. Kristen also calls to confess to Eric that she might still harbor feelings for him. Turtle resorts to desperate measures to get a date for their night of bowling, and it does not go unspoiled. After bowling, the large group makes a... Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


My wife noticed that when Emily dropped off the fan mail at Vince's house that her hair was pulled up in the back which was a stark difference from the characters earlier appearances in E01 - E03 where her hair was cropped short. When she meets the boys for date night, her hair was again cropped short. See more »

Boys' night out!
3 April 2008 | by MaxBorg89See all my reviews

Phone calls way too early in the morning: a beauty, aren't they? Especially if the unwanted caller is Ari Gold asking you to keep your celeb pal relaxed since his new big movie is about to open theatrically.

Too bad that in this case Eric would like to be left alone, seeing as he finally has a chance to go out with Emily. Sadly, there is no way that will happen, at least not the way he was hoping: because of Ari's concern, the guys decide to spend the whole night together, which means they all bring a date. Turtle is as desperate as usual, while Vince and Eric are quite OK with Justine Chapin and Emily respectively. As for Drama, he hooks up with some body-building woman who looks like the female version of Arnold Scharzenegger.

The charm of this episode stems from the simple fact that it's all about the boys: without any work interference, they are free to hang out, curse and drink as much as they please. It's the bond that unites these four guys that remains the show's most endearing trait, meaning the four protagonists (and their dates) almost steal the limelight from Piven. And yet they don't, 'cause when he shows up in the epilogue, all drunk, happy and genuinely affectionate, you will all remember why the foul-mouthed agent won you over in the first place: he's so excessive, but still so believable it is impossible not to root for his casual rants at anything he thinks of.
