The next day, Forte begins its presentation. Debbie shows off the Intellilink technology, and loud Lisa emphasizes the car's quiet environment. The executives are laughing, and everyone seems to be having a good time. Then Aubrey takes the stage to talk about safety and tears up as she tells the story of her mom's car accident that could have been avoided with the Verano's ten airbags. Mood killer! Not only is the story an absolute lie, Aubrey admits, but she also calls the car the "Verona" twice during her spiel. Oof! Of course she thinks she's an all-star and calls the audience members her "disciples." Teresa rounds out the presentation, which is kind of like putting your weakest swimmer on the anchor leg of a relay race. Teresa's husband Juicy Joe and her daughters have a small part in the suitcase to show how spacious the Verano is. Inexplicably (but awesomely), they also incorporate Tyson the Skateboarding Bulldog.
Q&A time. The ladies biff the very first question about the Verano's safety rating. Tia tries to cover, but it's super-awkward. They recover with questions about the sound system and an obvious plant about which features "reflect" them most. With time for one more question and plenty of hands raised, Teresa insists on asking, "Does it come in hot pink and leopard?" Crickets. Debbie's all, "Okay, then... That's all, folks!" The execs think the presentation was fun, and Debbie is positive Forte's creativity and heart will lead them to victory.
Time to get Unanimous! Or not, since Dee admits no one is on board with Adam's choices as PM. Adam is on stage for about 30 seconds before he loses his cool and admits how nervous he is. He recovers pretty quickly, telling the audience he's flustered because the Verano "is that spectacular" then rattling of an impressive list of features that gets the attention of the execs. Michael takes the stage and is predictably stiff and uncharismatic, but Dee doesn't think the audience will hold it against him. Michael says his two lines and leaves. Thus beginneth the heckling portion of the evening. Seeing the audience reaction, Clay thinks their gamble may have paid off -- especially when Penn jumps in the trunk. He goes for the obvious joke that it's surprising life has led him to the trunk of a car in New York City -- after Victoria Gotti left the show. Paul has a whole bit where he just says over and over again to Adam, "You suck!" The audience definitely does not get the joke -- maybe because Paul is a scary, handlebar mustachioed biker with massive biceps? It would have been funnier to have Clay or George (bless his fired soul) says this kind of thing because you wouldn't get the impression that either of them could or would beat the crap out of Adam. So, no matter how committed Paul is to his part, it's a dead end. Lou bounces Paul out, and the executive from Leo Burnett practically tugs at his collar it's so uncomfortable.
