“Work Out” Recaps: Episode 3.2 “SkyLab 2.0”


Later, sitting at the

bar, Rebecca and Erika try to pinpoint when exactly Jackie went completely


Rebecca: This is the first time where I’d

seen severe insecurities with Jackie’s leadership ability. Because here we are,

given a task. And she walks in and takes it over. And I felt that was really undermining.

Good morning, Rebecca! How’s

that fine coffee aroma? Meanwhile, Erika is still dreaming.

Erika: Oh my God, I can’t believe she,

like, did that to us.

Rebecca: You can’t, really? You

really can’t believe she did that? It is exactly

what she does. She’s probably the biggest control freak I have ever met in

my entire life.

Frankly, Rebecca has

always had Jackie’s number. But now that she’s not one of Jackie’s Chosen Ones,

she’s getting the other end of the stick. Just then, Jackie finds them and acts

as if nothing happened.

Rebecca smiles disingenuously

and tells Jackie how stoked she was about the workout coup. Erika says that honestly

she was a little mad. Oh, Erika. Honesty has no place here.

Jackie pulls an excuse

out of her ass: She claims she was just looking for Erika, and when she saw

they were in the middle of a boot camp, she thought it would be a hoot to jump


Jackie: Here’s the deal: It’s meant to

be fun. It should be OK for me to jump in.

Rebecca: If you wanted to teach the

boot camp, you would have taught it …

Erika: What would you do if we

jumped in on your boot camp? You’d be, like, “Out!”

Jackie: No, I wouldn’t.

Rebecca: No. You would ignore us.

Jackie: I jumped in for a minute. Honestly,

I thought the energy could have been more up.

Rebecca: I thought we were doing

just fine without you.

Jackie and Rebecca go ’round

and ’round about who’s at fault while Erika retreats inside herself. “You’re

insecure.” “No, you’re

insecure.” “You crumbled.” “I did not crumble.” “Relax.”

“No, you relax.” Girls!

Girls! You’re both pretty.

Finally, Jackie resorts

to the always effective debating technique, “Blah, blah, blah.”

Rebecca counters with the

equally effective argument, “When you point your finger, three more point

back at you.”

Circular arguments are

entertaining for about four seconds. After the fifth second, you want to poke

sticks in your eyes. This one goes on for a full three minutes. And that’s three

minutes none of us will never get back.

Man the lifeboats. Abandon
