In the Boardroom, Trump asks Carolyn and George for impressions. Carolyn agrees with Trump that none of them really did anything, or even really claimed to have done anything.
Back out in the lobby, Ivana comments, "She always skates by." Chris smiles ruefully and says he was thinking the same thing. There is a little more back and forth, and ultimately Kevin says, "She duped you, man. She got you, that's fine." And as assy as that comment is, it's also kind of true, and Chris pretty much has it coming.
George tells Trump that he "didn't see any fire from any of them." They all agree that nobody has any oomph at all, basically. "Send 'em home," Carolyn says, in a remark that has been variously interpreted to be "Send him home," referring to Chris, "Send them home," referring to an adventurous mass firing, or what I think it is, which is a general "I kind of don't care, because none of these people deserve to work for you" comment. I think Carolyn is thoroughly bored with this round of contestants.
Kevin, Ivana, and Chris are sent back into the Boardroom. Trump immediately asks Chris why in the hell he sent Jen back upstairs, when the entire team sucked equally. Chris says now that he let Jen go because two of the vendors praised her to him. Which is fine, but...they only sold two damn dresses. Nobody succeeded at any level, dude. She may be the best snowjob artist, but she didn't move dresses. This is basically what Carolyn says to him. Ivana is then asked what she thought of Chris as a leader, and she says, "I think Chris is very good at identifying problems, and when I say that, I mean he's really good at complaining." Trump comments on Ivana's endless supply of backhanded, obnoxious remarks about other people ["and, for the record, that remark was not 'backhanded,' Donald -- it was openly snotty and mean" -- Sars], and Chris tries to get a little traction by pointing out that it's because she's got experience, having been here constantly. Carolyn would like to know why Ivana thinks she finds herself in the Boardroom all the time, and Ivana insists -- no kidding -- that it's because she works so hard. She sticks out because she takes on so much responsibility, so when she inevitably, you know, fucks it up, she winds up in the Boardroom. That is really, really not as good an argument as she thinks. "I'm so good, they always bring me!" It really doesn't work that way.
