Memorable Moments

The program that Jessica is to be interviewed on is a shock-radio program, hosted by a Howard Stern-type boor named Marcus Rule, who's clearly out to offend Jessica. She exposes him for the fool that he is by making a reference to Doestoefsky. Rule clearly has no idea about Russian literature and says that maybe he should interview the author, but Jessica tells him that would be impossible, as he's been dead for quite some time, but that one of Doestoefsky's books would suit him to a tee: "The Idiot". The entire staff has quite a laugh at Jessica's socking it to this creep!
