Synopsis >

Love and work don't always mix so well. Danny realizes how lucky he is to have such a great connection with Mel and asks her to be his girlfriend. SxSW starts and the gang jump into work mode--well, maybe just a few of them. The group finds out from their boss, Paul, that by early next week they must have a decent rough cut of their documentary or they can't go on their vacation. Most people would hunker down and get down to work, but love makes work take the backseat. Mel ignores her pager while on a lunch date with Danny. The two proceed to go A.W.O.L. instead of meeting up with the rest of the group to film an interview with the band Enon. Nehemiah and Lacey can't believe Mel's tardiness. Later that night, the gang runs into the band Halifax and decide to join them for a little fun. Nehemiah, however, finds drinking on the job completely unprofessional. The night leads to some drunken jealousy for Danny when a Halifax band member hits on Mel. The next day, Nehemiah confronts the other boys about their drinking the night before, to no avail. Nehemiah does not want somebody else's partying to keep him from this vacation. Danny, again, finds himself lost and not understanding if Mel wants to be with him. Mel and Katie have a talk about Danny, and Katie gives Mel the advice to let Danny think he's right. During a sit down with Danny, Mel caves in and tells Danny that she is sorry and understands why he is mad. Mel explains to him that she just wants him to trust her. Trust is fine and well, but that documentary's not going to finish itself.
