As the episode opens, the rioters are still spilling out of the Warner Brother studios. Hedley Lamarr makes his way across the street to hail a cab. A man on the corner, not associated with the movie, managed to make it into the movie. As the cab pulls up, Hedley demands, "Drive me off this picture." Even though the theater is a 16 minute drive, it's suddenly late at night when Hedley arrives. He pushes his way to the box office and buys a ticket to see Blazing Saddles.
