Once again, we start with a preview scene. This time it’s of Magna trying to decide on their pizza topping. Does anyone else think that Craig was being really annoying to Kendra? Anyway, they choose the meatball thingy.
At dinner the night before the task assignment, Chris makes fun of Trump’s obsession with his tobacco habit, saying something about only sophisticated people in New York smoking. He feels insulted by Trump’s focus on his habit. Tana pretends to summon a nurse to bring him some valium. Hee! Chris thinks that Trump pictures him spitting into a cup in a meeting. Stephanie wonders if Chris is going to take it out on the team while he’s quitting. Angie says that of course he will. Chris doesn’t deny this, and says that Angie isn’t happy about having to work with him while he’s in nicotine withdrawal.
The next day, Net Worth cooks pizza. Stephanie says that she wanted to be the project manager so that she could boost morale and manipulate her team. I’m not sure “manipulate” is the right word here. She insists that everyone on the team be trained in making pizzas (hear that, Todd?), so that they can keep up with the supply and demand. Stephanie mentions that she doesn’t eat pork, so she can’t even eat the meatball pizza. She adds for emphasis that she doesn’t eat any four-legged animals. Does that mean she eats eight-legged animals? Or two-legged animals? Oh, my gosh, is Stephanie coming out of the closet as a cannibal?? Anyway, she says that at least her team can enjoy the pizza. Oh, just take the meatballs off of your piece.
Stephanie eats a piece of pizza anyway. Angie says that vegetarian or not, Stephanie scarfed down pizza. Angie says that Stephanie isn’t a vegetarian; she’s never seen anyone “eat so much dead animal. She’s a meat-lovin’ vegetarian.” Stephanie says that she wants another piece.
Alex and Chris go to Brooklyn to try to sell pizzas to construction workers. They don’t seem to be having any success. Alex suggests that they go back to Union Square, but Chris wants to stay. He doesn’t think that Alex’s decision to leave makes sense. Alex asks him about the possibility that they might not be able to come through with deals in Brooklyn. Chris says that he would rather make a deal with construction workers and not be able to honor it than not make a deal at all. I wish so badly that Trump had heard that. No way would he hire someone who thinks it’s okay to make deals and not honor them.
Alex seems to agree with me; he tells Chris that if they make a deal in Brooklyn, they have to honor it. Chris asks him whose team he’s on. Alex repeats that they have to follow through. He interviews that Chris has a different vision of business. Alex asks why someone would make a deal to build 1,000 buildings and then find out that he couldn’t even build an outhouse. Thank you, Alex. That’s a perfect point. He finally tells Chris that they need to cut their losses and leave.
Magna cooks and sells pizzas. Bren says that he picked the area they’re in because there’s no competition from fast food restaurants around. Very smart. He starts talking about the meatball pizza and says “balls” approximately 47 times. That’s mature.
Magna keeps selling. Bren says that they’re doing a lot of business, but that’s actually a problem - there’s more demand than supply. People are getting antsy about having to wait in line for their pizza. Bren says that it’s getting uncomfortable, and he wishes that he could keep an eye on everything, but he’s in the back, making pizzas. He says that he and Craig are struggling to keep their noses above water, let alone their heads. He notes that if they disappoint too many people, they could lose the task.
Net Worth finishes the task and closes up. Stephanie notes that she ate beef and pork and feels sick, so she doesn’t think she could handle a loss on top of that. She tells Alex that if they lose, she wants Chris gone. Alex says that Chris is angry at the world. Stephanie replies that he hung up on her when she was in Brooklyn. Alex tells her about the fight and says in an interview that he’s waiting for Chris to pop and start killing people. Actually, I’m waiting for the same thing. Not the killing people, but the popping. I think it’ll be very entertaining. Stephanie says that she can’t manage someone that out of control. Interesting, since later she tells Trump the exact opposite.
After learning that they’ve lost, Net Worth returns to the suite. Stephanie tells Angie that they just didn’t work well as a team. Later, Angie tells Chris and Tana about Stephanie’s complaints, mentioning that she said Alex told her Chris threatened to beat him up. Chris goes to confront Alex, asking him if he told “her” that Chris threatened him. Alex asks who this “her” is and Chris says, “Who do you think? That little retard.” Aaaaaand you’re off my Christmas list. Not that you were ever on it. They have their whole fight and Alex interviews that Chris is a spoiled brat. He says that no one’s ever stood up to him.
Magna gets their reward. Tana, Bren, and Kendra look at a bunch of family photos. At breakfast, Trump asks how Net Worth took their loss. Tana says that they took it hard and Trump wonders why - “were they surprised?” He says that when you’re winning or losing, you sort of have an idea of how things are going. Craig interviews that eating with someone is in intimate experience, and Trump doesn’t eat with everyone. He adds that this is great, since not going to the boardroom is enough of a reward. Trump has to leave before the meal is over, but he tells the team to take their time and enjoy themselves. What’s nice is that Bren shows his respect by standing up when Trump leaves the table, but Trump urges him to sit down.1 2 Next-->
