Storyline

Mr. James has made a bet with Ted Turner that someone from WNYX will win a talent show. However, the act Mr. James had in mind can't perform on the show and he tells Dave and the others that he'll rehire Matthew if somebody wins the talent show. Bill and Beth start a musical act, Joe has an act where he hits things really hard without hurting his hand and Lisa can solve any complex mathematical equation. Dave also has an act, but won't do it and won't tell what it is because he thinks he'll be laughed at. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>
