The next morning, Mosaic takes the Trump limo out as Andy crows in an interview that the rest of these fools now know that they were led to victory by the kid they all wrote off. Which is a moment he's basically entitled to, considering how they treated him. The team gets out of the limo in Times Square. And when they look up at the big...whatever, Jumbotron...they see that their commercial is running. And it never will again, because it really is not professional-looking, but good for them anyway. Maria, of course, takes full credit for the entire thing, and for how rewarding it was to see her work -- by which she means Andy's work about which she fought him every step of the way -- up there on the big screen. I think she still wishes it had more tight asses.
Wes and Elizabeth talk back at the suite later. He tells her to "curse as much as possible" in the Boardroom. Heh. He also tells her that her best shot is to be opinionated and strong, and to hope her opinion is the same as Trump's. It's actually spot-on advice, which kind of surprises me, since it's...you know, Wes. As Elizabeth works on the computer, she says she fully expects to have the finger pointed at her in the Boardroom. And then Jen -- determined to keep up the trend of everyone I once liked totally sucking ass -- actually pulls Wes aside and lectures him about how he shouldn't have given Elizabeth any Boardroom advice. Excuse me? What fucking business is it of hers? He can talk to whomever he wants, you buttinsky! For crying out loud, what has come over the formerly sane? "It's not fair," she whines. Wes insists that all he told Elizabeth was, "Don't be a pussy." And that was on the air! Unlike "JAPs," which was censored in my time zone. Oh, what a world.
Raj and Elizabeth talk on the balcony. She says that it would have been more helpful if people had offered to help, rather than just endlessly complaining and ultimately walking off the job. She tells him that what they saw as waffling was her effort to get them off the military approach -- which, you'll remember, Deutsch absolutely despised. Raj snots to her that she'll probably pin that whole thing on him, what with it being...his idea and everything. Raj interviews that he expects to "come under fire" for having "supported" -- no, shoved, dear -- the terrorism angle for the ad. "Look," he says, "at the end of the day, if everybody had thought that was such a bad idea, we wouldn't have gone forward with it." Dude. At least in Elizabeth's case, she told you about a zillion times it was a bad idea. You refused to hear the reasons. You can't share the blame with everyone when you berated them for disagreeing with you about it. I tell you, it's a world gone mad. It's like nobody remembers anything they did even, like, earlier the same day.
