Kristi continues to shriek! "Why would she be still allowed to participate in this, and get credit? We're better off without her! She's BENCHED!" And a thousand people heard this wrong, the first or second time they saw it, and I've watched it like a million times, and she never called her a bitch. And even though that would be terrible and unprofessional, I'm kind of sad about it. Toral's like, "Kristi, just calm down for a second," again, like she's the rational one here, out of the two of them, and Kristi gets in there with the Shame Finger again: "No, no! Just step up to the plate, Toral!" It feels good. Toral's all, "I just can't do it." Hey, remember gym class? Remember when you were in gym class with Toral? Remember how she could make the gym teacher turn purple? Remember? ["Remember how you had no respect for the gym teacher after that? See above. If you're going to bench her, bench her, but don't be a bunch of seventh-grade girls about it, please." -- Sars]
Rebecca interviews that she was "uncomfortable with the way that the team just raked Toral over the coals," and feels like the team has "already made up their minds, and they don't want her here." Insightful, Crutches McObvious. Back to the conference room, where Jennifer is like, "Rebecca. Don't feel bad for her. Please." It's awesome how she says this, like, "Please don't get all upset about this. He was a really old dog, and he had a good life." Rebecca's shaky, but assents.
Mark and Clay are very nervous about the presentation as they return to their team. The boys clamber all over each other like a box of puppies, all about the jingle and the concept and the story and Randal's like, "The genie is lying on the carpet and the ingredients fall into the Blizzard," and there are high-fives everywhere and Adam almost bursts into song again and Clay...just starts bitching. I tried to figure it out for like an hour, but I still don't know what he's bitching about. Just randomly complaining and fitting nonsense words together. Randal interviews about how Clay just wants to "scrap everything" and how dumb that is, and it's the most perturbed I've ever seen him. Markus, because he also speaks crazy, tries to answer Clay's complaints, and that makes no sense either, and then Clay hisses, "Stop! Stop! Two seconds! And I don't want you to speak until I tell you to speak, okay?" Aw, snap. He did not just say that. You know who else said that? Jeff on Martha. You know who I'll beat up if I ever run into him? Jeff on Martha. You can talk a lot of shit and tell me to do a lot of things, but you will not tell me what I can say, or when I can speak. Not when you're the one babbling. Find a better way. Be a fucking manager.
