"This is America, damn it!"

"God, I love when you're debaty."
—Henry, to Tina

The most beige romance in history occurs when Henry Haber tries schmoozing new debate team member Tina. Meanwhile, Louise makes a movie with a meat man.

Tropes

  • Amateur Film-Making Plot: Louise decides to make a stop-motion film with a "meatman" molded out of leftover ground meat.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Sacha exploits Tina's weakness for this to try and win the debate. It works... for a while.
  • Emotions vs. Stoicism: The big debate in the climax is whether a robot can be president, which becomes a discussion of this trope.
  • Funny Foreigner: Duncan, Sacha's airheaded teammate from New Zealand.
  • Gibberish of Love: Tina has a terrible time trying not to fall for Duncan, resulting in her tripping over her words about a dozen times.
  • Has a Type: Discussed by Tina after she starts crushing on Duncan.
    Tina: I'm just pre-wired for long-necked boys with thick accents and/or speech impediments.
  • Advertisement:
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Tina says she likes the metric system, and gives it a ten out of ten.
  • Movie-Making Mess: Louise's movie about Meat Man ends with a literal example of this trope, thanks to the magic of firecrackers.
  • Not So Above It All: Even nitpicky, dickish Hugo (with Ron in tow, as usual) gets into the final destruction of Meatman.
