The execs shows them the crappy current B&GC rec rooms, which are all torn carpet and emptiness, because they've been cleared for the renovation, so all you see is the bare walls and marks and nastiness on everything. Kids are gross. Lenny deadpans that this is a "beautiful room," and they all laugh, but the whole thing is so depressing. Purple carpet. It looks like a crack den for children. Lee interviews that Lenny has "stepped up to being Project Manager" and that it's huge for him, because "if he delivers a victory this week he's going to be the man." Lee doesn't offer that "the man" in this case means "the man on thin ice, who didn't get fired," because he doesn't really believe that Lenny could get fired, because he seems to have convinced them both that Lenny is his real dad.
Lenny brainstorms about a theme ("dance, art, musical") and Lee says he loved the drums at 14, and would love a theme about music and dance. Lenny says they can only have one theme, either or, and Leslie would prefer "music" over "dancing." Before Lenny can further narrow their theme to, like, "Dance Hits of the Mid-'90s," Charmaine begs him to focus on their meeting with the Ace execs, whose names she tells him again, and the fact that they will be arriving in five minutes. Lenny's response: "Okay, we should get speakers and a nice stereo..." and Charmaine's like, "Maybe we can think about some things to ask the executives? I'm just trying to make you aware of the time." Lenny's response: "I'm thinking music is a good theme..." Charmaine interviews how "upsetting" she found it that he was so oblivious to the exec meeting, because not only are they the client, but also the judges -- "Lenny didn't care." I think the point she's missing is that it wasn't about ignoring the executives, it was about ignoring her.
