Boardroom. Trump first asks Eric if he's enjoyed this, and he claims he had a lot of fun. Trump asks Bret how he did, and Bret thinks they did very well, coming up with original ideas and getting it all done on time. Both Sharon and Maria thought Bret was a terrific project manager. Bret says he felt comfortable, since he likes being in the studio. He says they reeled him in a little bit, and they just spit out great ideas. Ivanka says it was an interesting dynamic to see Sharon reining in the rock star, which she's sure Sharon is used to, trying to make it a little more dry and on-point. Trump asks if it's true, and Sharon says Bret has a great imagination, but they don't always have the time.
Trump asks Summer what she thinks, and she loves her team and her team's end product because they listened to the executives and got back to them what they wanted. Trump asks who her weak link was, and she says she didn't have one, but she had Cyndi, who was her strong link. She also says Holly was amazing. Trump asks Curtis how they did, and he thinks they won. Trump asks if he thinks he did a good job, and he does. Silence. Then Cyndi pipes up that the executives were so straight and conservative. She tells the whole story about wondering what Ben Franklin, who's all about electricity, has to do with plumbing other than being in the tub with a lot of French women. Everyone's cracking up, even Ivanka. And Trump's even smiling a little. She says they wanted no funny stuff about the plumbers. Which is Trump's opportunity to segue back to RockSolid, who didn't pay attention to that advice. He asks why Bret used the plumber's crack joke. He says he didn't feel it was a joke, but Sharon and Maria told him not to do it so he'll own up to that one and be fired if they lose. Ivanka doesn't get that, since they explicitly asked them not to make jokes at the plumbers' expense. Bret says he wants something that stands out, and self-deprecation is a form of confidence.
Trump plays RockSolid's Ben commercial. Then their Mister Sparky commercial, which they liked the most. Cyndi's giggling along with both of them. The executives felt they could really put the Mister Sparky commercial on the air. Trump asks if Summer thought their commercials were better, and she didn't. Curtis felt they were a little off-brand, and that one had a catchy jingle and the other didn't. Sharon makes a face so Trump asks her to respond to that. She says she never likes his comments. Maria disagrees with him too. Trump asks Eric about Tenacity, and he says the executives thought they packed in too much information and lacked originality, but they really liked hearing Cyndi sing. They play the Cyndi commercial, and everyone looks bored until Cyndi sings. Trump agrees with the executives that they had too many words. He plays the one the executives liked, which is the one about plumbing. Everyone still looks bored. Eric says the executives liked the music and the brand message. Sharon thought they were professional. Maria thinks theirs was more musical and Bret thinks theirs was more original.
