Carolyn tells Jennifer that project managers always defend her in the boardroom. Jennifer says that she always works hard. Carolyn says that she does, but she's a "smart girl" (interesting that she says "girl," not "woman"). In fact, she might be "too smart." Jennifer wonders if that's a bad thing. She says that she went to some good schools, but when the time came, she washed dogs along with everyone else. Carolyn wonders if it's just a coincidence that Jennifer always gets specifically mentioned and then saved in the boardroom. Jennifer claims that it is a coincidence. Carolyn points out that she gets to see what happens during the task, but not what goes on in the suite.
Trump says that Jennifer should be doing better. Jennifer thinks she's doing well. George says that it's not enough to work hard, they have to work smart. Jennifer says that the team worked together. George points out that Jennifer never admitted to making a mistake on the bottle. Jennifer takes the opportunity to admit that they made a mistake. Trump wonders why she isn't defending her team. If we'd seen this scene on the show, I would have been sure that Jennifer was going to get fired. First she's told that she should be admitting her mistakes; then she's told that she should be defending her team's mistakes. She pretty much can't win in this situation. Jennifer agrees with George that they should have been able to see what was in the bottle.
Trump asks Sandy who did the worst job on the task. Sandy says that Jennifer did, since she flew under the radar. Jennifer says that this isn't true. Round three of the fight, this time between Jennifer and Sandy. Things turn personal when Sandy tells Jennifer that she should think about why she was sent from Apex to Mosaic. Jennifer fires back that Andy came to her and they pretty much agreed to go after Sandy. So much for not making alliances. Sandy accuses them of doing just that and Andy jumps in that they weren't aligning.
Jennifer and Sandy go back to fighting and Andy tries to make some interjections. Trump says that Sandy is beating Andy. See, here's where I disagree with Trump. Yes, Sandy was arguing in such a way that Andy couldn't get a word in. But Andy is a debater, not an arguer. In a debate, things are organized and everyone gets a say. People don't sit there and yell at each other, trying to see who's louder. Andy could take Sandy in a debate because he's a better speaker. Sandy took Andy in the fight because she's a better yeller.
Jennifer and Sandy keep fighting (and I think it stands to be mentioned that Sandy is also beating Jennifer in this argument). Andy still isn't able to say anything. Trump announces that Andy is being beaten badly and he can't have him running a company. Andy is fired. Jennifer and Sandy leave the room and start bickering again outside the elevator. Robin is sitting there, all, "I'm going to have something awesome to talk about at the water cooler. First the guy with the bow ties asks for my number, and now the two blond girls can't keep their mouths shut until they get up to the suite? This is the best job ever!" Trump tells Andy that Sandy and Jennifer are "two tough hombres." Bzzzt! Thanks for playing, Trump, but "hombre" means "man." Andy thanks Trump and leaves the boardroom.
In the cab, Andy says that he's in shock. He thought that either Jennifer or Sandy would argue herself to a firing. That might not be the best technique, especially since Trump doesn't like it, but that doesn't mean it hasn't worked before. Andy says that the boardroom is about survival and, as Trump said, he got eaten alive. He laughs a little at this, like he knows it's true. He says that he wouldn't have done the task differently. He thought everything about it was great. Andy showcased his skills well. I can't decide if he means that he showcased them for Trump or for some other potential employer who may have seen him on this show.
Andy points out that he was in the first boardroom and lasted until the twelfth episode. That is pretty good. He says that everyone kept thinking that he was too young, but that obviously wasn't the case. He was lucky to be there and is proud that he could be. He thanks Trump again, even though he disagrees with his decision (well, obviously). He hopes to have a good job in the future and points out that he's just a college graduate. He says that he had a good experience and hopes that he did his family proud. He had fun, and he would do it again.
