Lenny tells his team that, first of all, he "didn't do anything wrong," which is a good way to start this shit, and says he really doesn't want to "bring anybody into the Boardroom." The funny thing about Russian is how the "except fucking Charmaine" is actually silent in his native tongue. Little-known fact. He interviews that the only bad thing about the entire task was Charmaine, "complaining all the time," and he's willing to bet that she's "probably the reason" that they lost. The brain math on that is so easy, we don't need to do it. Charmaine applies her face and tells Tarek she has no idea who Lenny's bringing, and she might be telling the truth, but I doubt it, because she's a smart girl. Tarek says that things only went wrong when Lenny and Lee checked out, but says it in a way where you can tell he's practicing for the BR, and he interviews in the same vein: "I can't believe he left us!" He talks about the "thin ice" some more, and wonders if (trans.: "hopes that") this will put Trump over the edge, and then, "that's the end for Lenny."
In the kitchen, Lee's made a cheat sheet for Lenny entitled "Lenny's Cheat Sheet," which is a multi-part document outlining: possible questions from the Trump and Viceroys, their best answers, qualities of Lenny to bring up, and the many kinds of love Lee feels for Lenny. Lenny couldn't care less about any of this. It's pretty rough, watching Lee do this whole song and dance to save Lenny, and Lenny allowing his arrogance to cloud even that. I think there's also slight linguistic irritation going on with Lee, too, based on this conversation and the conversation back in the van. And the fact that Lenny thinks of Lee as a pet, and not a player in this game in any way, so why would he think that Lee could help him? But Lee's love for him blinds him to all this, and he doggedly keeps going and quizzing him and shit, and I think it's admirable to go through all this with Lenny, but it's kind of sad and irritating that Lee's lying down for somebody who doesn't think of him even slightly as a man. "What were we being judged on?" Lenny says, "Sustainability," meaning that he's either crazy or does not know what that word means, because expensive electronic equipment in the middle of the hyperactive, sugar-stoked wolves' den that is daycare is not a concept you want in the same room as the word "sustainability."
Lee: "No." Lenny: "Yes. Sustainability." Lee: "No. Creativity." Lenny: "Yes. Sustainability." Lee: "No." Jacob: "You know what? I think you've got this covered, Lenny. Clearly you know what you're doing, and I don't want to seem pushy, so I'm gonna bounce."
