The men are also speaking to the seniors about their thoughts on technology. One man, Jacob, says that technology is from the devil. That explains the attraction and addictive nature. I should’ve known. Mark says that they’re going to need some outstanding ideas to overcome that kind of belief.
The men meet to go over what they’ve learned and decide what to teach at the expo. Markus wants to do something with TiVo, but Clay doesn’t think this is a good idea. Markus offers to do that portion himself. Clay thinks he’ll be wasting his time. He says that TiVo is too difficult to set up. Exactly the reason you should teach the seniors about it – make something seemingly difficult easier to understand.
Clay asks George if he can give some input into people his age. George warns dryly that Clay is on thin ice. Clay asks if people George’s age tend to be set in their ways. George tells him that that’s something they have to figure out for themselves. Randal decides to try the TiVo idea. Clay tells him that if they’re wrong, they’ll figure things out later. Josh interviews that “Clay is the biggest bi%#$ on the team.” He basically told Randal that he wants to be on the record as having been against the TiVo idea in case they lost. Josh says that they’ll take Clay down.
This week’s Trump Lesson of the Week is “Inspire.” Considering later events, I’m surprised they didn’t use the one from last week, “Be Flexible.” Trump yells at some poor guy in his office and says that leadership is important. Leaders must inspire their followers. For some reason, some woman named Jennifer (we’re everywhere), who happens to be Miss Universe, comes into Trump’s office. He tells the guy he was yelling at that they have a good time around there and that “Trump is Trump.” The Jenn Lesson of the Week is “Don’t Name Your Child Jennifer.” There are too many of us as it is.
The women of Capital Edge meet to discuss what they’ve learned. Rebecca announces that there will be no discussion until everyone has said something. She makes sure that everyone is listening. The women decide that they’ll have three stations at the expo – one for computers, one for TV, and one for health and fitness. Rebecca asks if there are any other products they should consider. Alla interviews that Rebecca’s leadership style is abrasive. She thinks that a strong woman leading other strong women should talk to her team, not talk at them. I like Alla, too. I didn’t think I would, considering the whole ex-stripper/murder-inspiration thing, but I do.
Capital Edge shops at Best Buy. Kristi, Felisha, and Alla are all standing around. Kristi says that she’s just been sitting back and not doing much. The team has a low energy level and Alla says that, without any excitement, they could fail. Kristi says that if a leader can’t get her team jazzed up about a task, she’s not much of a leader.
The guys (all wearing Geek Squad shirts) are meeting again. Mark calls Clay out on his behavior earlier, calling it contrived. Clay announces that if they lose and he’s taken to the Boardroom, he doesn’t want everyone to say that he never said anything. Randal wonders if his comments were constructive. Markus announces that the guys should bury the hatchet and sort out their problems. Only he uses a metaphor I don’t want to use.
Excel’s expo (say that five times fast) begins. Randal explains that the theme is “connecting the generations.” Clay and Brian are in charge of the hobbies and interests section, which is about the Internet. Clay tells a senior that he can use the Internet to find anything. The man suggests that he can find an old girlfriend. Adam (who?) is in charge of photography. Oops, sorry, Adam, your three seconds are up for the week. See you soon!
Markus is leading a TiVo training session and actually doing pretty well. Josh says that this is the perfect situation for Markus – he has a captive audience and can’t be interrupted. Markus tries to make sure that Jacob is paying attention. One of the seniors tells George to try the food. Randal thinks that the expo looks good and is inviting.
The women’s expo, on the other hand, looks… empty. Not only are there not a lot of people there, but there’s a huge blank space in the middle of the room, so it looks emptier than it is. Rebecca greets people from a wheelchair. Jen W. is at the front of the room, greeting people and offering food. She talks to Carolyn, who thinks that Jen W. created a dry event that isn’t drawing people in. Oh, and the cake is supposed to say Techno Expo, but it says Tethno Expo. Oops! Rebecca is also unimpressed but says that they’ll persevere.
Toral tries to show some seniors how to use a high-definition TV. She’s not doing very well. She interviews that she’s an investment banker and negotiates multimillion-dollar deals. She doesn’t want to say that this is below her, but it’s not something she would generally do. Marshawn interviews that during Toral’s demonstration, the TV worked less than it malfunctioned. She thinks that Toral is the team’s weakest link.
Jen M. talks to a senior about a heart rate monitor. She says that the men are loving being around the women. She does some pushups to demonstrate the monitor. The man tells Carolyn that if his wife were around, she’d kill him. He notes that Jen M.’s heart rate is high and he got her excited. Jen M. teasingly asks what she’s going to do with him. She interviews that if they men give them a high score just because they’re women, she’ll take it. Yay! Using sexuality to get ahead! We can never get enough of that!<--Previous 1 2 3 4 Next-->
