Bill's complete inability to perform on-camera seems a little odd — he hasn't had a problem with public speaking in the past, even if he's seemed a little stiff — and while the show might be trying to imply that Bill's impotence has caused an across-the-board crisis of confidence, well, that seems a little far-fetched, too.
