The "hair business," Trump tells us, is a $150B industry (which: mad props to Trump for finally pronouncing correctly), and one yooge franchise is The Hair Cuttery, a business nobody has ever heard of, which looks and behaves exactly like a damned Supercuts. The Cuttery guy, on pain of death, admires Trump's hair, both in style and color, and we finally get to the task: oversee the grand opening of one of two new Hair Cuttery locations -- revenue at day's end will determine the winning team. They all head to the elevators, doing the dead-eyed Sarah Silverman yuppie voice: "That was really funny. That was so funny." Before the elevator doors close, Tammy yells at Charmaine, "You didn't get the back! Check out the back!" There is silence in the elevator of such deafening loudness that I assume Tammy's going to be fired by the end of the episode, if not kneecapped by Carolyn herself for taking the Hair humor one step too far.
Allie congratulates herself, with Roxanne as her witness, about how her "ship was sinking in the Boardroom," but she "never let up!" It's very Lee, this moment, and not attractive. Tammy interviews that Sean will likely "never recover" from how bad he burned them, and tells us that, as PM, she's going to have to put out the fires like that, and "make sure the team members can operate at a high efficiency level." I never know what to think about Tammy, because every time I see her I feel like she snuck up on me, and I hate that. Roxanne babbles cutely as they enter their salon, and then they boss the staff around about where everything should go. Everyone on both teams hyperfocuses on the products for sale, but I think for once it's for the right reason, made explicit later in the episode: a haircut takes an hour, but convincing somebody to buy hair stuff takes ten seconds, because everybody likes buying hair stuff. I wonder how much a real salon makes there -- is it like at the movies? Sean goes on and on about how he's this "marked man" because he went against the Overmind in order to protect his virgin integrity or whatever, and they're probably going to "pounce" if he does anything wrong. He has a point; Allie and Roxanne will, in fact, go after him, and Tammy will do what they say, but not because of Andrea -- because he's weak. He designs an invitation to the grand opening, and they all give their input, but because we're inside his paranoia, it all seems very dangerous and scary.
