Don jumps in and says that Brian's making a lot of faces, and he'd like to know what he's thinking. (Me? I'd like to know what Clint's thinking; has he said a word? I think this is what we call "flying under the radar.") Brian says that if you're all in the kitchen, and everybody's doing something, isn't that delegation? He says that no one needed to be told what to do except Dennis and Dice Clay, because they all stepped up and took on a task. The ladies are wondering if they could be friends after a boardroom like that? Trump asks Clint who he would fire. Clint first says that it's unfortunate that this how they're finding fault with their team, and that he hopes they're going to learn, but Trump interrupts, "That's how it happens." Clint thinks there was a lack of cohesion. Trump asks who he'd fire again, and... we go to commercial.
After the break, he sighs and says he would fire Dice Clay. Trump asks why, and Clint says Dice Clay required the most pushing. He says he loves a joke and a laugh as much as anyone, but they needed man power. Dice Clay asks if he's saying that using his talents on the air -- because it's not heavy lifting -- isn't working. Trump asks Dice Clay who he'd fire. Dice Clay says he has to say it a different way, because he has to do things his way. He says Clint's right about him in that he has to do things the way he does them. And if he messes up, he takes responsibility. Dice Clay says he's willing to leave, for a few reasons: He thinks everyone did a great job. He thinks what he did was great, too, but he doesn't want to be in a place where people think he's not doing what he's supposed to do. Trump asks if he's quitting, and Herschel says, "You shouldn't quit." Trump tells him that if he quits right now, he'll be known as a quitter for the rest of his life, and he doesn't want that. (Actually, I think most people will still think of him as Ford Fairlane; one episode of this show won't change that.) Dice Clay says the three people who have quit over the years are considered losers, but he adds that he doesn't care if Dice Clay quits because it makes his job a lot easier. Dice Clay says it's not about quitting, and Trump says, "It is about quitting, Andrew. If you quit, you quit." I love how Trump treats everyone like they're 3. Dice Clay says Trump's right, so he's not quitting.
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.
