When Stallone needs to get something done, he always uses a montage. I recognize this is an audio medium, but if Paul could maybe put a video together of all the work he puts into getting Stallone on the show (e.g. waking up at dawn and jogging to the Wolfpop studios, punching out interns, responding to "haters" on social media) at the end of the video Stallone would have to walk in, right? Who am I kidding? Of course I am right! That's how montages work. That's how LIFE works.

That's actually a pretty airtight case. Sly would see it, and he'd at LEAST have to call in.
