Andrea interviews something boring and self-righteous, although there's a very endearing moment where the foghorn on another ship blasts and she jumps and takes a second to get it together. She's being very awful, like, "I just hope we're creative enough as a team to put the footage that we did manage to get together into a beautiful commercial...but, if we lose this task because of the footage that we didn't get, it will be Roxanne's fault." Which is not exactly true, because time stops and starts at Andrea's command, but only for Andrea herself. How obnoxious she has become.
Showtime, Synergy: Tammy does a quick and simple voice-over about how NLC is all freestyley and all that, and then they experiment with having the drab couple-shot in black and white, and Andrea complains in a way that makes no sense. She says that the shot, which has been corrected for her interference, has nothing to do with the cruise or the concept, and is just confusing. I don't really see what she means. The whole team is very annoyed. Even Roxanne, usually calm, is hissing through her teeth at this point, asking Andrea whether it's really that complex to have five tiny seconds of people having no fun, followed by twenty-five of all the awesome fun you would have on a NCL cruise. Andrea says that doing this will have the side effect of "making the product look crappy," and I could hazard a guess that she means it'll be confusing to watch and the viewer will end up thinking that the black-and-white shot will just look like more shots of the same boat. Which...is the point of making it black-and-white. Roxanne is now kind of yelling about how she doesn't see the problem in trying the black-and-white shot, when they have all kinds of time, and when her concept has been roundly supported the whole time. Andrea: "No way! That's totally untrue, Roxanne. I've been saying...you know my opinion, you know I don't think it's a good idea. But you're the PM, period..." blah blah blah blame-shifting and fake subordination. Roxanne interviews -- awesomely -- that "there comes a time and a place" when and where if one doesn't "stick up" for oneself, "you might as well just go home." She then puts that into practice, yelling at both Andrea and Tammy that she's been completely honest with her thoughts and process all day long, and that neither of them has really been interested in listening, and calls attention to the fact of how helpful she was when they were both Project Managers, and that she respected their calls even when she didn't exactly agree with them. Silence. Profound silence, except for the ice crackling all over Andrea and Tammy, who don't even understand that she's right, and they wrote her off before they even got started -- because her competence and willingness to accept delegation make her look weak to them, which is unfair.
