Back in the suite, after the loss, Brian tells his team that tomorrow’s Boardroom will be pretty straightforward. He says that he won’t say anything against any of his teammates. They didn’t grasp the creativity and he’s man enough to admit it. Brian tells the rest of the team that they did a good job, but honestly he didn’t have fun during the task. Randal interviews that for the first time, he’s seeing someone who has run out of gas. It makes him sad. Brian tells his team that they did what they could. Do or do not; there is no try.
Capital Edge meets with Bill for their reward. Adam asks Bill what traits an apprentice should have. Bill names passion, action, and results. Adam thinks that Bill is a good source to consult. Clay notes that Bill has an actual job as the apprentice. Bill admits that when he first won, he thought he would never see Trump again. However, Trump has taken him under his wing and given him access to his world. Clay interviews that he wants the job even more now because he would love to do what Bill does.
The group eats lunch together and Clay asks what the best advice is that Bill could give them. Bill mentions that their team seems to have a lot of problems. Alla says that it needs to be about winning. Felisha says that they need to find a balance. She wonders if it’s bad to be strategic, but Bill points out that business is about strategy. They need a new dynamic, because the team as it is isn’t working right now. Clay says that he’s learned that, in the end, “it’s all about you.” Did I miss something? I didn’t hear Bill say that. Whatever, Clay.
Excel heads to the Boardroom. Trump asks Brian what the group’s concept was. Brian says that it was good vs. evil. Trump asks who came up with the concept and Brian says that it was Randal’s, but they built on it. Trump is surprised that Randal came up with a concept that didn’t pan out in the end. Randal thought it was good and mentions that the task was about both the concept and the display. Trump asks if Excel’s concept was better than Capital Edge’s. Randal doesn’t know what their concept was. He says that Capital Edge did a better job and had a better-looking display, but Excel’s concept was better.
Everyone discusses the whole meeting/traffic fiasco. Trump also brings up the fact that the team didn’t feature Darth Vader in their display. Carolyn points out that they would have been better equipped for the task if they’d gone to the meeting. Rebecca admits that her only source was the cover of the DVD. It had Darth in the background, looking ominous, and they tried to recreate that. Obviously it didn’t work. Randal says that they definitely should have met with the executives.
Brian says what he told his teammates - that they couldn’t grasp the creativity. They were new to the movie and didn’t have information from the meeting. Carolyn thinks this is a poor excuse. Bill notes that they had Randal for information. Trump asks if Randal is a Star Wars expert; Randal says that he knows enough to be dangerous. Brian says that they lost because they didn’t get the “gist.” Carolyn notes that, of course, they would have if they’d gone to the meeting.
Trump says that Brian hasn’t stepped up. Marshawn doesn’t think that Brian’s heart is in the game. Trump thinks he overrated Brian when he met him. Brian apparently always apologizes for his height (though we’ve never seen him do this). Trump reveals that Brian is 5’2”. Brian - you probably have a hard time finding women who aren’t taller than you. I’m two inches shorter than you. Call me! Trump says that Brian has a lot going for him, so he shouldn’t defend his height. Brian protests that he doesn’t; in fact, he makes light of it (which we’ve seen). It’s part of his personality and persona. If Brian had seen a Star Wars movie, he could say, “Judge me by my size, do you?”
Carolyn asks about the presentation and what happened to Marshawn. Marshawn says that she thought Brian’s communication style was better for the task. Trump disagrees, basically saying that Brian would have sucked. (Fortunately, Brian agrees.) Marshawn makes more excuses until Trump asks straight out if Marshawn didn’t want to do the presentation or if Brian didn’t want her to do it. Brian says that he gave Marshawn the responsibility but she dropped the ball. Marshawn says that he’s just saying that. Trump asks Marshawn if she thought Rebecca would be a better presenter than her. Marshawn says that she wanted to give Rebecca the opportunity to shine, which is total crap, and we all know it because we saw what happened. Carolyn wonders why Marshawn didn’t try to get the ball back in her court after Rebecca stepped up.
Trump announces that if there’s one thing we’ve learned about Rebecca, it’s that she doesn’t lie. She’s a rock, as evidenced by the way she defended Toral. Trump thinks that this shows flexibility, honesty, and sincerity. He says that Rebecca knew that if she didn’t defend Toral, it would be an asset to her, but she was willing to go down fighting. He thinks this shows Rebecca’s loyalty.
Trump asks Rebecca why she offered to present. Rebecca says that she wanted to get the job done and focus on the project. Bill notes that Marshawn should have been concerned with showcasing her talents, especially at this leg of the game. Trump says that Marshawn ditched her team. She admits that it was her idea not to present. She hems and haws about how Rebecca did, then finally says that she was “fine.” Bill says that Marshawn is contradicting herself - she said she’d be better than Rebecca, but she let her do the presentation. Marshawn says that she didn’t know how Rebecca would do because she hadn’t see her in action yet. Bill wonders why she would take the risk of handing the presentation over to Rebecca, since it was a big task. Trump agrees, saying that he loved this task.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
