View Printable version of this article
Bren and Alex still love their table. Carolyn tells them that Staples doesn’t. She talks about storage problems, noting that Staples probably wouldn’t be able to keep many of the tables in the store because they would take up too much room. The conversation turns to the focus group (or lack thereof, in this case).
Trump says that by not meeting with the executives, Alex and Bren didn’t give them a chance to like them. George says that they performed the task backwards. He wants to know who set that schedule; Alex takes responsibility, but Bren says it was both of them.
Trump notes that Bren and Alex are both lawyers, but that doesn’t necessarily make them smart. Most of the problems were Alex’s fault. He says that Alex started out strong but is finishing weak. Daddy’s disappointed. Alex says that he put Bren in charge of marketing and he “dropped the ball.” Trump thinks that Alex relied on Bren too much, but Alex points out that there were only two people on their team. Trump says that Bren and Alex were both lousy, but he has to do something with someone.
Bren talks about his trouble with taking risks. He should have kept quiet. Alex and Bren talk about their various risks. Carolyn asks Bren why he wants to work for Trump. Bren says that the organization is the best and he wants to be the best. Carolyn replies that that was the right answer and she’ll accept it, but I think she really means that he gave the answer everyone gives.
Bren says that he tends to go with what he knows over what he feels. George wonders if he thinks that’s what they’re looking for at the Trump Organization. Bren says he’s learning how to take risks. He’s fallen, but he’s also picked himself up.
Trump asks why he should fire Alex. Bren points out that Alex decided not to go to Staples or meet with the executives. Trump asks why he should fire Bren. Alex repeats Bren’s own point about not taking risks.
Trump notes that Bren isn’t going after Alex. Bren says that it boils down to who Trump wants. Alex says he wants the job more, but Bren thinks that his actions have shown that he wants it. Carolyn notes that this is it - someone’s leaving, so it comes down to who wants this more.
Trump talks about risks again. He says that he doesn’t mind teaching Bren to take risks, but he wants to start with him at a high school level, not kindergarten. Therefore, Bren is fired.
In the cab, Bren gives what’s possibly the shortest and definitely the sweetest speech ever. He says that things went differently than he and Alex thought they would - Alex wanted to lash out at Trump, Carolyn, and George, but he didn’t. Bren adds that he didn’t fight as hard as he could have, but he was tired. He doesn’t think that he has the same hunger that Alex does. He’s made some good friends and learned about what he wanted. He came here wanting one thing, but learned along the way that what he really wants is what he has back home. Aww!
