And that's... all we see of the task. In the van on the way to the show, there's a bit in the webisode where Marisa spills her cappuccino on the bathing suits. Which is bad news, but what's really bad news is the deft and practiced way that Heidi makes her feel like complete, utter, total shit while saying calming, sweet, managerial things about how they'll work it out. I would do the same thing, but it's a particular kind of Connecticut Throwdown in which I was already kind of scared Heidi was skilled. She goes a bit far with it, because the fact is that it happened and it's over and they need to deal with it.
Heidi: "Oh, that's okay. They go in the water."
Marisa: "I'm really, really sorry. I know I was on thin ice for getting whiny about the... "
Heidi: "Trust me, it's fine."
Marisa: "Your mouth is saying it's fine but your body is saying I'm a jerkoff."
Heidi: "I cannot control how you read my body language."
Marisa: "But I'm really sorry and I need you to accept my apology."
Heidi: "Nothing to apologize for! It's just our whole task and living in the mansion for two weeks and none of us going home that whole time. It'll wipe right off."
Marisa: "I feel like you're mad."
Heidi: "Stop crying."
Marisa: "I feel like I should hurl myself off the Santa Monica Pier."
Heidi: "I can completely understand why you would feel that way, but it's your decision to do it, let's be clear on that. I'm not your mom."
Later on in the webisode, she has virtually the same conversation with poor Surya, who has been chosen to model one of the men's suits, given that Derek is too much man for the suit as designed, because he is the size and shape of a refrigerator.
Heidi: "Little late, Surya. Put it on."
Surya: "I just realized there are going to be people."
Heidi: "I want to make sure that you're comfortable doing this."
Surya: "I just said I'm not."
Heidi: "Right. I want you to tell me that you're comfortable doing this."
Surya: "But I'm really not."
Heidi: "Okay well, it's just our whole task and living in the mansion for two weeks and none of us going home that whole time. No big. We'll just have one less suit than them."
Surya: "Okay do you want me to be comfortable, or do you want to ram-rod this down my throat?"
Heidi: "I need you to do this and stop giving me shit about it."
Surya: "Fine, I'll do it. Okay?"
Heidi: "I don't want you to buy flowers for the suit, I want you to want to buy flowers for the suit."
Surya: "I can't promise that I will be able to do that."
Heidi: "I will cut you with a knife."
Surya: "I bought some flowers for you, suit!"
Heidi: "I just want to point out that you're changing your mind of your own free will because you are a team player and I am the best Project Manager this game has ever seen. Say it."
Surya: "Put down the knife."
Heidi: "SAY IT, SCRUB."
