Ivanka tells Joan that the humor was actually what they liked, but had they gone a step further, it might have been distracting to them. She says they did respond to that positively. Trump asks Joan who to fire, and she once again cannot stand this. Clint tells her to go ahead; it won't hurt his feelings. She says it would have to be the project manager. Trump says that Joan wanted more snap in the jingle and, ultimately, that might be one of the reasons he didn't win. He tells Clint he's a real talent, and he loved his jingle, but he's lost before, so Clint's fired. Clint thanks Trump for everything, and they thank him. He leaves. Brande says that has to be hard and Annie says he just got beat by a poker player who's never sung anything in her life. Joan tells them how funny the commercial could have been as she gets up. In the hall, Jesse and Joan both hug Clint. He interviews that he knew he was going when Athena won. He learned a lot about himself and his people skills, and that life's too short to be around people he doesn't enjoy.
Annie and Brande don't want Joan to come in, and they hope she doesn't. But they do. Brande says she's knows it's hard. Jesse says hi. Annie wants to be happy about final four, but Joan won't even look at her. Jesse tells them they did a good job pulling that out, and Annie's like, "I don't know how I even wrote that jingle." Joan says that any team Annie's on is spelled, "T-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-e-a-m." Hee. Annie asks if Jesse really became friends with Clint, and Jesse says it's easier to be friends than fight with him. Joan leaves the room, and Annie says it became really jovial. Jesse asks them to play checkers to prove that point. Annie calls Joan a "cancer." The phone rings, and they're all called back to the boardroom.
