Next, Charles and Martha come down on Jennifer for not watching Hateful Jim and for letting him get away with his offensive antics for so long. Jennifer can't really defend herself. She says she was helping Bethenny prepare the salad. "Jim could have prepared the salad!" Martha says. "Jim could have prepared the salad," Hateful Jim repeats. Man, he's so insane. Martha thinks that Jennifer should have been on the floor selling and that she should have kept Hateful Jim off the floor, "especially since he has a history of being a little overly aggressive, overly enthusiastic, overly verbal. Dah, dah, dah." "Dah, dah, dah," Hateful Jim gleefully parrots. Can someone turn him off? By the way, I think Martha was going for "yada yada yada," but is stuck in 1998, where that VW commercial still plays incessantly. Martha says to Jennifer, "You're a DA!" Hateful Jim makes scoffing agreement noises. "You should be able to control him -- in a courtroom --" Martha insists. I don't really see what her being a district attorney has to do with anything. Whatever. Jennifer says that she thought Hateful Jim was a time bomb and she didn't know what he would do if she pulled him. I'm sorry, but Hateful is such a kiss-assy wimp that if Jennifer had showed a little spine and pulled him from the floor, Hateful Jim would have spent the rest of the task working really hard to make it up to her. Hateful Jim calls Jennifer a "timid little rabbit." Carrie agrees with this when Charles asks if she thinks Jennifer is scared. "A difficulty managed is an opportunity found," says Hateful Jim, and adds that he's sure MSLO has ten thousand Jennifers and very few Hateful Jims. "There might be a good reason for that," Martha announces. Seriously. And given how white MSLO reportedly is, I doubt she has ten thousand Jennifers. Jennifer wants to tell Martha something juicy, so she leans in and says, "Jim had made a comment that 'when Martha looks in the mirror, she sees me.' And I fail to believe that when you look in the mirror, you see a raving lunatic who --" "And now I'm a lunatic? My psychi -- my psycholo -- she's a psychologist as well as a lawyer, ladies and gentlemen!" Hateful Jim raves. Man, I think he was actually going to say something about his psychiatrist but thought better of it. Damn, because you just know his psychi/psycholo is watching this show with one eye and buying a few chateaux in Provence with the other. Jennifer was trying to get out that, when Hateful Jim returned to the loft one night, he was wild-eyed and crazed, but Hateful Jim says that Jennifer hid behind every corner to avoid work and led the team by not leading. When the rest of the team is questioned, Carrie and Bethenny vote that Jennifer wasn't effectual as a leader, Sarah says Jennifer was good at delegating, and Howie says he would send Hateful Jim home. Martha says it's clear that Jennifer and Hateful Jim are the only two of the group that should be considered for ousting. Everyone else is excused.
