Storyline

When the prop men and cue card holders go out on strike just before show time, chaos reigns on the set. Guest host Allison Janney hasn't quite memorized her lines, and it shows. Props aren't in the right place, sound effects and sight gags go off at the wrong time, and the cast and crew struggle to get through the show. Meanwhile a 'phoned in bomb threat complicates matters.

Trivia

This episode does not feature any of the three main characters, played by Matthew Perry, Amanda Peet and Bradley Whitford. This due to all three actors agreeing to a cut in their episodes to save the show some money, and it was deemed easiest to write them all out at the same time. Interestingly, both Perry's and Whitford's characters are referenced, while Peet's isn't. See more »

Quotes

Cal Shanley: Can we determine if there actually is a bomb in the building?
Jack Rudolph: I trust them, but just in case why don't we handcuff them to the building overnight
