When Stuart suggests that actress Reagan Lauren Busch star in their new picture, Peter agrees and asks for an audition. However, wanting to be a player in his own right, Stuart insists that she is given the part and that he be allowed to make the deal. Meanwhile, though continuing to provide Peter with all the sex he can handle, Wendy decides to stop charging him each and every time. And though he is the project’s writer, Adam can’t get any respect at the studio.
After Holden Van Dorn assures Peter that he’s got his drug use under control, Reagan arrives for the first script reading fifty pounds overweight. Told that Stuart never actually saw her before signing the contract, Peter insists that he either fire the actress or make sure she’s in shape by the time they start shooting. But once the reading gets underway, Peter discovers that Holden’s drug problem is far from being conquered. Meanwhile, as Wendy starts treating Peter more like a boyfriend and less like a customer, Adam is pepper sprayed by a vigilant studio guard.
In an effort to see that Holden passes his insurance physical, Lonnie offers to get clean urine and blood samples from a reliable source. And to make sure Reagan gets her weight down, Peter calls on a shady doctor. While wrestling with his conscience over what he’ll do to see that his movie gets made, Peter accuses Wendy of being too demanding. As Wendy takes a weekend in Palm Springs to service an elderly client, Peter realizes just how much he’s being paid to make the picture. As a result, he sends Lonnie for the phony lab samples while arranging for Reagan to have all her fat sucked out. Finally, upon Wendy’s return, she and Peter agree that their relationship works much better when there’s money involved.
