Mark, brilliantly, gets all kinds of up in there about how they were doing the same thing, concentrating on nasty old Outback Guy, until they met the force of nature that is Alison T. Singer, and that she was so passionate and demanding that their entire focus warped over to fundraising, and mentions forcefully that this was Randal's decision, "and it was a great one." Actually, it was the same one, just with the charity and not the sponsor, but the spin ended up positive, and how could it not, because charity is the Godwin's Law of capitalism, it ends the entire conversation. Which Rebecca should have known, considering she consults for nonprofits, and I'm not going to make excuses, but she really seems to have misread that entire thing, like to a degree where maybe somebody should have pointed out to her that charity always wins over business. But then, I guess that's what Carolyn openly did, once it was too late.
Chris starts talking about his fabulous love of Rebecca's fierce, diva-glorious style, pointing out that he'd not actually ever worked with her to this point (which is interesting, because it means she really was picking entirely on her vibes, and not just with Toral), and that coming into this he really had no idea "what [his] leader would be like," and that she proved herself to be "a very effective manager." Josh interrupts, and Chris gets a little pissy ("Josh?") about how it's about "going above and beyond," and come on, Rebecca clearly knew she was going up against Randal, and Chris says that in fact she did go "above and beyond" and Josh disagrees and blah blah blah you weren't there, Josh, so shut up. I love Josh more than Rebecca, probably, but I'm confused about where he gets off, here. Chris goes off in that Chris-speechifying way about how she proved it to him, that she is an "effective and strong leader," and that he doesn't work for somebody he can't respect, and that she's proven herself as a great manager and a great executive.
Marshawn tells Trump straight up that Randal is better, without a doubt: he's "smart, strategic and successful --" and Trump interrupts: "Is Rebecca not smart?" Marshawn, cool and good, is like, "I'm not taking anything away from Rebecca. But you're asking who's better." Seriously. What a dumb objection to raise. Marshawn says that Randal's education distinguishes him from Rebecca by far, and Chris points out that Randal's education distinguishes him from everybody ever, and Toral randomly says that Rebecca has "integrity," and out of nowhere Josh admits that Rebecca is smart.
