Then, live, Trump says people are wondering if Bret will be here tonight and he will be. The audience goes nuts. Trump says deciding who will win is tough, so it never hurts to get help. He brings back Bill and Joan to give him some tips. They sit across the table from Trump and the Trumpsters, and I sort of wish Joan and Bill would go head to head and one of them would be fired. Joan tells Trump how much more money she makes now, thanks to being on the show. Trump asks her who she would pick, and she says it's tough. Holly's a mother, fighting for her child. But Bret, "you talk about no sick days." She says the determination to come back from death's door is extraordinary. Trump says that, in Bret's situation, 50 percent of the people don't even make it to the hospital. Joan says that, business-wise, it should be Holly, but, screw that, it's Bret. Bill says that he likes both of these two, which is why he chose them last week. He says that the popular opinion isn't always the right one. Joan says Bill's wrong and they do start arguing. Oh my goodness, I'm getting my wish. And Joan points out what I wanted someone to say, which is that Bret's also fighting for his child. Trump asks Rod who he chooses, and Rod says that Trump can't fire Bret because sometimes you have to go with your heart. Rod is such a robot that it's hard to believe he even has a heart.
Back in the "live" "boardroom," Trump introduces Holly, whose family cheers for her in the audience. She hugs all the other "celebrities" -- and, by the way, where is Sharon? Trump tries to make Holly sit, but she says she's standing for Bret, and Trump agrees she should. His parents are there, and his dad's wearing a bandanna, like his. His mom looks a little nervous. He walks in with a very serious-looking limp and gets a huge round of applause, and gets warm applause and hugs from all of the "celebrities," including Holly, who's crying. Trump tells her it's beautiful she's crying, and she says, "Who in America isn't?" Then she says her own son woke up this morning and said, "Mom, I love you but I'm kinda pulling for Bret." Trump asks Bret about his doctors and mentions he spoke with them; Bret says they were amazing, and he also thanks Trump and his family for all of their well-wishes. Trump says that Bret's doctors didn't want him to be here tonight, at all, and Bret agrees. Trump asks him if he's risking his life, and Bret says that lately it seems like just standing up is risking his life. He says he's like a medical experiment, and it's been a rough go. He says he's glad he's here and it is a risk, but, all respect to Holly, he didn't travel all this way to lose.
