Trump asks who Dice Clay would fire, and Dice Clay says "Scott." Trump's surprised and asks what Scott did. Dice Clay says, "Nothing." He says Scott did a little of this and a little of that, but nothing big. Trump asks Scott who he'd fire. Scott doesn't want to throw anyone under the bus, but Trump forces him to. Scott says Dennis and Dice Clay? Ooh, two for one. That sounds intriguing. Brian says Dice Clay. Jesse says Dennis, because he thinks Dennis could do a really good job, but might not have the work ethic required. Tom would fire Herschel, because he's the project manager. He really likes Herschel, but he needs to take responsibility. Trump reminds Herschel that the project manager on a losing team is not in a good position. Herschel know that, but he says he's not here to baby-sit people. Trump tells him he's made a very good case. That was a good case? I think Dennis and Dice Clay have made good cases for why Herschel shouldn't be fired, but Herschel didn't do that himself.
Trump tells Herschel that the sad thing is that they made a lousy cupcake, which is too bad, because if they'd won the taste test, the would have won the whole thing, but that's the way it goes. He tells Herschel to pick two people to come back to the board room. Dennis says that's a no-brainer, but Trump challenges him, asking who he thinks he'll pick. Dennis says he's always the victim, but Trump tells him not to do the persecution stuff with him. Dennis says he'll persevere, and Trump says he's doing just fine, and living well. Trump gets bleeped when he tells Dennis not to do that shit with him. Herschel chooses Dice Clay and Dennis. Trump sends the others back to their suite and the fated three into the hall. He tells the ladies to turn off their TV, because that's all they get to see. They mostly think Dice Clay is going home, since he tried to quit. But Melissa thinks it might be Herschel.
In the hall, Dice Clay says it wasn't about quitting; he really did think everyone did a great job. I actually believe him, and think he's probably a genuinely nice guy despite so many bits of evidences to the contrary. I mean, he's a comedian because he wants everyone to like him or something. And Dennis, always a victim, says, "It is what it is. Either way, we'll live to see another day. So, it's all love." Dice Clay seems sad, and so does Dennis, actually. I think Herschel knows he's safe. Dice Clay begs Trump to bring them in already. He starts talking about how they're guys making cupcakes, and "chicks" should know how to cook. Then he asks the receptionist if she can cook, and then he invites her out. She says no, but he tells her to be ready around 8.
