"The Hospies" is the eighth episode in the fifth season of Schitt's Creek. It is the sixtieth episode overall.
Johnny and Stevie are heading to Elm Glen for the Regional Hospitality Awards - "the Hospies". They, on behalf of the Rosebud Motel, are up for the award for Best Customer's Service in a Motel Under 20 Units. Knowing that Emir will be at the awards, Stevie decides to make the trip not just a one-day quickie with Emir, but a couple of days sojourn with him to his next couple of motels. Stevie hopes this getaway with him will take their relationship to the next level. Meanwhile, Jocelyn and Moira have casted all the roles for Cabaret, except the character of Sally Bowles, with the known options little to zero, that is until Alexis, who is already doing the publicity for the show, volunteers to assume the role. Moira seems to do whatever she can to prevent Alexis from even auditioning, which may ultimately place Jocelyn in a difficult position. And because they have opened up the store for community events, David and Patrick have decided to hire Ronnie to fix the store's bathroom for public use. But when the renovations seem to be stalled with the front of store under tarp after tarp, Patrick feels he has to put down his foot with Ronnie, which may only exacerbate the problem.
