Meanwhile, Teresa says she's a "big fan of photography" because she takes photos of her nightmare daughters at home. She also notes that Arsenio isn't doing much of anything on the task.
At the team's presentation, Teresa is a fucking disaster reading off her index cards. Or expounding about the product or her team's ads. Or sounding like a functioning human being with neurons. She sounds like she's just learning to read. Aubrey obviously looks like a genius by comparison, and of course she pimps herself out to Farouk. The lighting on these photos, by the way, is CRUNK as hell, all weird saturated colors, like it's in the back room of a nightclub. "And that's our presentation," Teresa says, ending the presentation with a weird car-show pose last seen during a Showcase Showdown on The Price Is Right. Aubrey, as usual, takes credit for EVERYTHING. "I saved the day," and all that.
Right at the outset, Lisa and Clay give interviews to the effect that they're not going to refrain from going after the other if they fuck up. But as usual, they work really well together. Lisa notes the touch screen on the hair dryer, sure, but also that it's lightweight and quiet and "a lot more than what you see on the outside," so she decides on a concept about women who are not what they seem on the outside. Clay worries the concept is too "busy" (or abstract) for a print ad, but he's willing to go with it.
After the model negotiation, Lisa goes clothes shopping with the models that she chose. "Shopping for size zero [clothes] is the best thing in the world!" she enthuses. "The bags don't even weigh anything!" Meanwhile, Clay struggles to properly direct the hair and makeup people back at the shoot. Lots of "When Lisa gets here..." responses. At one point, he brings a cup of coffee to a model ("You wanted black ... but this has cream in it..."). OOOF, Clay. Just ... ooof. So Lisa is running late with the wardrobe, and when she does arrive, she eats lunch while Clay supervises the shoots. This gets set up like some major transgression that's going to come back to haunt her, but nothing else comes of it. Later, Don Jr. arrives, and he has the same concerns Clay did about how a complex idea will translate.
