Joe's terrible choice in uniforms leads his team on a road trip to Arcyl Industries. When they arrive at the facility, Janet introduces them to her long-time friend, Dr. Arcyl (Lycra spelled backwards). This is the man who invented the legendary fabric that changed the aerobics industry. Dr. Arcyl coerces everyone into increasing levels of discomfort to create new uniforms. By the end of the excruciating endeavor, everyone is at odds with one another and unsure about their abilities as a team. Meanwhile, Claudia is getting tired of Barry's alpha attitude and decides to do something about it.
