T-Bag and his daughter have this unending conversation about how he takes things really personally and that if you cross him he will hate you for the rest of his life and he never recovers from it. How very fucking admirable, not to mention professional. Ivanka's nodding, like, "I have no idea why you would want this on record, but...yeah, I suppose your emotional maturity leaves a bit to be desired, Dad." It's not a funny moment, but she does her best to nod with a smile.
Who was the worst? Roxanne, per Tammy: She brings drama (I'll give you that) and distracts Allie (I really do think it's Satan, rather than Roxanne, who holds Allie's attention lots of the time, but I think they do get into more trouble together than they do apart -- and by the same token, they get the most work done that way too, so...), and brings Allie down. Which is BS, because that's a lot of fingers to be pointing at once. Roxanne employs the Tarek Defense that she's a straight shooter and honest and verbalizes her concerns and ideas and should not be punished for that, and T-Bag swerves sharply left to ask if that means she doesn't "get along with people," which: Huh? And everybody kind of ignores that part because he's on some kind of satellite delay in his brain, and T-Bag asks if she doesn't in fact owe some kind of allegiance to Tammy as the team leader, and Roxanne responds that, here and now, Tammy's a losing Project Manager, and has to attack one of two people. Bill, uselessly, points out that Roxanne attacked Tammy during the task. Which...is material in that both sentences use the same word, "attack" in different verb forms, but other than that, it's just Bill talking for no fucking reason.
Realizing Bill's about to send them all off on yet another semantic goose chase, Ivanka gets us on track with a quickness. "Allie's saying nothing. Nobody has said you did anything wrong -- or right." They ask whom Allie finds most talented, and Trump laughs because of course she's going to say Roxanne, and Bill laughs because Trump laughs. Allie is smarter than that: "Both, but I think Roxanne has more talent. I'm friends with both women." Roxanne says that she's the target because she wasn't a yes man, and Bill jumps into the obvious opening face-first: "Are you saying Allie's a yes woman?" Could you tell me what, beyond shit-stirring, that question's supposed to illuminate? What possible answer to that question could make the decision about who to fire easier? Honestly. Say yes, Allie will answer intelligently. Say no, and you're off on another tangent, thanks yet the fuck again to Bill. Don't answer, and you're evasive and showing favoritism. Nothing material at all. Shut up, Bill. And also: Bill Rancic is going to fucking throw stones in the Yes-Man house? I don't think so. Roxanne says that Allie is diplomatic, and Bill is like, "Yes or no!" because he thinks he's Carolyn. Except that when Carolyn does it, she's asking questions with answers that signify.
