Synopsis

Plot

Mr. Peanutbutter's frustrated account Oxnard tells him PB Livin' is bankrupt due to him and Todd going through with terrible business ideas.

He angrily tells Mr. Peanutbutter to get a job. Mr. Peanutbutter goes to see his agent, Ronnie Bonito, although after waiting outside all day he goes into his office to find Ronnie has accidentally died from autoerotic asphyxiation.

BoJack shows Wanda that he bought a pager for himself so that they can page each other. Wanda is flattered by the gesture. BoJack goes to leave, but he accidentally says "Love ya" as he walks away. This freaks him out, so he says "No I don’t!", and runs out the door.

Outside, BoJack regrets his reaction, and realizes he forgot his keys inside. Not wanting to face Wanda, he steals a stroller from a baby and rolls downhill.

Princess Carolyn arrives to work late with gravy on the fornt of her dress and with a broken heel. She begs to hold the elevator, but the people inside don’t notice her. She tells Rutabega that it's a good thing she's invisible around here, so no one notices how much of a mess she is. Rutabaga reassures her that he notices her, and asks if she wants "the movie star speech", but she assures him it’s fine.

Diane asks Mr. Peanutbutter what his plans are for today. Mr. Peanutbutter tells her that he's going to leave everything up to destiny, and just go wonder around Hollywood and wait to be discovered - the same way he got his sitcom. Diane asks if he's also going to find a new agent and go on auditions, but he laughs at this and walks out of the house.

BoJack asks Diane for help about his "love" flub, saying that he just isn't looking forward to having a conversation about his and Wanda's relationship after work. He gets the idea to never stop working in order to avoid that awkward conversation.

Princess Carolyn arrives at her meeting late. She's told by Mr. Witherspoon, that the agents who came to work on time are reaching out to Ronnie's clients. Princess Carolyn is left with the only leftover - Mr. Peanutbutter.

Meanwhile, Mr. Peanutbutter is walking around Hollywoo. He eventually gets the idea to work in a Lady Footlocker.

BoJack's plan doesn't work, as Kelsey says union rules prevent them from working past a certain time. He recruits his costar, Corduroy Jackson Jackson to come and have a drink with him, where Corduroy reveals he’s recovering from his addiction of auto erotic asphyxiation.

BoJack finally goes home but Wanda is waiting up for him. He apologizes for that morning, but she says it's fine, because she doesn't love him either.

The next day, BoJack asks Wanda about her not loving him. Wanda says it isn't a big deal and that they're just having a good time.

Princess Carolyn goes to the Lady's Footlocker where she sees Mr. Peanutbutter working.

Rutabaga runs into Princess Carolyn and tells her in the elevator that Ronnie had a super secret client she can pouch: J.D. Salinger.

Corduroy is waiting for BoJack in his trailer. He asks BoJack to hold on to his masturbating kit for him.

Princess Carolyn goes to a bicycle store where J.D. Salinger is working. She tells J.D. Salinger that the world is ready for his big comeback. He says that everyone just hounds him for his books, but Princess Carolyn tells him about Hollywoo and how nobody likes to read there.

Wanda arrives at BoJack's house. BoJack tells her that he wants to try autoerotic asphyxiation, which could accidentally kill him, but that if she loves him then she wouldn't want him to do it. She tells him to go for it. The next day BoJack and Todd head to Lowes to get stuff for BoJack's autoerotic asphyxiation.

Princess Carolyn takes J.D. Salinger to meet Wanda to talk about tv show ideas. He pitches her a game show where Hollywoo stars and celebrities reveal what they know and if they know things - Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out!. Wanda loves the idea, but she wonders who's going to host. Princess Carolyn says he has just the guy to host. She approaches Mr. Peanutbutter and asks him to do it. He says yes.

However, despite her accomplishments, Princess Carolyn receives no recognition for them at work, with Mr. Witherspoon only drawing attention to Charley catching a bagel from the toaster oven

Wanda arrives home to find BoJack in the bedroom setting up his autoerotic asphyxiation machine. Wanda finally admits that she loves him when he nearly chokes himself with the rope. However, she tells him that if he loves her he won't use the machine. BoJack decides not to do it, but says only because he didn't want to in the first place.

Princess Carolyn confides in Rutabaga on the phone over her frustrations. He then gives her the movie star speech which he offered to give her earlier - The is the part of the movie where the world turns its back on her and she gets her heart broken, but this part of the movie has to happen in order for her to deserve her happy ending. The speech appears to give Princess Carolyn some hope. Rutabaga then reveals to her he thinks he and his wife Katie are getting a divorce.

BoJack goes to give Corduroy back his masturbating kit, but finds him hanging from the ceiling, having accidentally died from auto erotic asphyxiation.
