They were not blathering nonsense. They were setting up the characters as to where they are today. To summarize:
-Ben is till running the great hotel and has hired an attractive assistant. He denies having sex with her, but there may be something there.
-Jerry is running a marijuana edibles company.
-There is a customer form New York who has lodged a complain, and is comped by Ben for two days. This may or may not be connected to the mysterious billionaire in New York.
It did not stick out to me as good a scene as the brie sandwiches or smoked cheese pig scene, but it was mildly amusing. Certainly not awful in my opinion. The real test is where it leads next.
Okay, I admit you might be on to something here. It's too early to tell. I didn't like the scene at all but will reappraise it if the series gives me reason(s) to do so. Same thing with the New York City scene(s) and that horrible (and I don't mean it in a good way) CGI-ed alien-like thingamy - I've seen better effects in a third-rate, bottom-of-the-barrel, direct-to-video horror flick...
