This week on The Crazy Ones, it’s time for the annual Accounts vs. Creatives Sixteen-Inch Softball game. This year the stakes are high because the firm had to let a client go. This means that someone from the Creative or Account teams will need to be let go. Gordon (Brad Garrett) and Simon (Robin Williams) make a bet that the team who loses will have to make the cut.
Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) wears a perforated leather top by Rebecca Taylor ($158), sold-out teal Kaleidoscope pumps by Charlotte Olympia and sold-out Arte Designs Turquoise Gemstone Earrings ($45):
This puts a lot of pressure on the Creative team and nobody wants to sign up for the game. The only thing that will inspire hope in the team is if Simon decides to come out of retirement and play this year. Ten years ago, in the annual firm game, Simon played the game of his life when he hit five homeruns and won the game for the Creatives.
Simon confesses to Zach (James Wolk) that they only reason he played so well is because he was on an acid trip and he is terrible at sports. Zach convinces him that the other team just needs to think he is playing and that will be enough to psych them out. This works for a while as Gordon walks Simon every time he is up to bat and then Simon throws his back out in the end. Unfortunately, Simon takes some muscle relaxers and suddenly thinks he can play again. He ends up hallucinating a wondrous victory, but in reality, he doesn’t even hit the ball and ends up running the bases backwards.
This was a cute episode, I love the dynamic between Simon and Gordon.
