Asked for her opinion, Carolyn says that she thinks the team's performance had some clear flaws. She says that she doesn't think the $300 value car rental in that setting was a good draw. Trump openly mocks the idea of giving away a rental rather than giving away the car. Secondary NotGeorge offers his opinion that the car with the balloons on it was just generally a boring, dumb idea. Nothing like what was going on with Protégé and the fun time folks had with the wheel and the laughing and the tiger and stuff. Katrina, not wanting to be deprived credit for her great ideas, says that she wanted to have belly dancers and a circus theme. Trump says that Atlantic City has plenty of spectacle -- what they needed was a car. "Who chose this stupid concept?" he asks. No one says anything. "Was it Nick?" he asks. "Was it you? Was it you?" "I came up with the car, I didn't come up with the idea --" "So it's Nick or Amy," Carolyn says impatiently. Amy innocently insists that she has no idea whose idea it was (it was hers). "I'm not really sure," she says. (It was hers.) ["It is not a secret that I do not like Katrina, but if I were Trump, that blandly smug 'I'm not really sure' would probably have gotten Amy thumped instead. Like hell you're not, blondie." -- Sars] Trump insists that had they managed to get a car to give away, the outcome would have been completely different. "I think your concept was terrible," he says.
Now it's time for Amy to pick someone to go up to the suite and someone to stay with her. She chooses Nick to go up, meaning Katrina gets to stay. Nick smiles. Katrina smirks. Nick takes off, and Amy and Katrina go off to sit in the lobby and wait. It's interesting to watch the two women sitting on the yellow couch, trying to find a way that they can sit without showing everything under their skirts.
Trump chats with Carolyn and Secondary NotGeorge. Secondary NotGeorge says that he thinks no one did a particularly good job, but Katrina seemed especially uninterested in what was going on, and didn't seem to even be trying to contribute. Carolyn agrees, but adds that although Amy has done well in past tasks, she "made large mistakes" in this one. Trump brings the women back in. Carolyn starts by asking Amy what Nick did better than Katrina. Amy says that they were equal in this particular task, but over time, she thinks Nick has been the better candidate. Katrina insists that Nick isn't any better than she is. She complains that she's been "underestimated" and she hasn't been "given the opportunity" to be a good leader. She complains about the negotiation at the car dealership, claiming that Amy cut her off when she was trying to negotiate. Amy says that she doesn't understand that, because she thinks that Katrina was the one who ultimately did negotiate the deal. Amy says that Katrina "used some charm" and got the deal done. Katrina jumps in to bitch, because God forbid anyone should think that's how she functions, but Trump stops her to ask her whether she does, in fact, believe in "using womanly charm." Womanly charm? Oh, and me without my petticoats. She says that she "most definitely" does, and Amy says that she does, too, "absolutely." Trump asks whether they think that's unfair to the men, and Amy counters that every man who's left in the suite has used charm at some point or another. Uh...yeah, I can't really argue, I guess.
