One night, the catty receptionist tells Elsa she ought to think about changing her act – you know, because Marlene Dietrich did it better. Since we all know that Marlene Dietrich is Elsa's mortal enemy, this exchange results in the receptionist getting slapped in the face. Elsa gets wrestled to the ground by security and makes a scene. But luckily, her fight with the cops draws the attention of a network executive who happens to be on his way out – Michael Beck, the junior VP of casting. (Fun fact: Beck happens to be played by David Burtka, real-life husband of previous guest star Neil Patrick Harris.) Elsa's crying and Beck feels bad for her, and the two ultimately end up bonding over being German. It's sort of a weird, but you get the feeling Elsa's luck might be turning around at last.
