Added DiffLines:

* When Chip sets up Steven after he rejected him for seemingly the last time: he had secretly recorded him (and Robin) badmouthing his supervisor, Hal, [[OhCrap and uploaded it to the computers at work.]] In it, he was going on about how "utterly useless" he was, that he had no vision and that working for him was like working for WesternAnimation/MrMagoo and talking about his awful hair plugs. As he tries to explain himself, Hal yells at him to GetOut and insecurely pats his said hair plugs. Made even better by the reactions of his coworkers, including Creator/DavidCross' character's face reading half "you're in deep shit" and half "you're only saying what we're all thinking".
