Trump asks Dice Clay who he'd fire, and he says Herschel, because it's the boss's job to delegate. Now he's just glomming on to Dennis's idea. Herschel says he did delegate, and reminds everyone that when he got the call to send someone to Crumbs, he delegated that to Dice Clay because he wasn't doing anything. Dice Clay tries to interrupt, but Herschel's making a good point. Dice Clay tries to say he was selling with Tom, but Herschel says he wasn't. Herschel also adds a creepy, "I'm the man here. You're wrong." What does that even mean? I know I don't like it, but I'm not sure why. Dennis just sits there nodding, realizing he's sort of out of the mix now; heat's off him. All part of his strategy. Dice Clay and Herschel continue to talk over each other, and then Herschel calls Dice Clay a has-been. Dice Clay asks if Herschel's still playing ball. And then Dice Clay asks Trump if he has said anything to him that made sense as far as what he did this week. Trump, being generous, said Dice Clay said some things that made sense. Trump says the one thing that didn't make sense was when he wanted to quit. Dice Clay says he wasn't quitting; he didn't want anyone else to have to go. Ivanka says it didn't feel like he was being a martyr in the context of the moment.
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.
