Trump says, "Okay look," so you know we're (finally!) getting somewhere. He's known Dice Clay a long time, and he's been great, and he's really a talented guy (again, who knew Trump was this generous?). But he's seen tremendous fight in Dennis tonight, and in Herschel. And Dice Clay wanted to quit. Trump hates that. Trump tells Dice Clay his kids should be very proud of him, and he's known him a long time and knows he's been through a lot, and isn't a quitter. But he's fired. In the hall, Dice Clay hugs both Dennis and Herschel, and doesn't even look at the receptionist who he wanted to date. Back in the boardroom, Trump thinks he made the right decision. Ivanka agrees, and says that if she and Don were ever to quit, Trump wouldn't let them... but Trump interrupts her to say, "But he didn't quit. He didn't quit. He's a winner, and he's going to be a winner." Wow, this is the nicest I've ever seen Trump. Who knew he'd be such a softie for the Dice Man? Who, by the way, is walking out of Trump Tower into a car. Dennis and Herschel are heading back to the suite.
In the car, Dice Clay says he wouldn't have done anything differently. He came in there and told them how he felt about baking cupcakes (wait ... did he like it? I can't remember). He thanks Trump for having him and impersonates Stallone (I think it's Stallone, but his impressions are so good, it's hard to tell for sure) when he says he absolutely enjoyed being on the show.
Next week: The guys will be coming off a loss, so it's game on.
