Episode complete credited cast:


WNYX is exceeding it's budget and Mr. James tells Dave he has to get rid of the free snacks in the break room. Dave tells Mr. James this will lead to a revolt lead by Bill and that the staff will consider Dave the bad guy, but Mr. James sees no other options. Pretty soon, Bill is indeed the leader of a revolt of the whole staff - save Lisa who doesn't want to be involved because she's involved with Dave - and tells Dave what their demands are. However, Bill demands a massage chair instead of free snacks in the break room. Meanwhile, Joe tries to get Catherine to go on a date with him by fixing her not-broken desk.

Did You Know?


Mr. James complains that WNYX is the only business that he owns that was "in the red last year", meaning it lost money, yet last season when Mr. James put Dave in charge of the budget and Dave found Mr. James had been wasting a good deal of company money, like using the company helicopter to fly to his house cities away to play with his dogs, and making expensive calls, Mr. James blows it off telling Dave he has lots of money and he doesn't care.
