Stefani: "How much do you love me for bringing your clothes?"
Translation: "I brought you your clothes."
Tim: "I have no socks."
Tim's loafers: "It's true."
Arrow: [Laugh crazily, with their total lack of sleep or perspective, until they fall down, then roll around on the floor, still laughing, bumping into the walls, crazier than they have ever been.]
Arrow heads into their meeting with the execs, where James's oft-weird construction comes up again as he thanks them for letting him do this, or something. I'll have to watch it again to make sure it made sense, and there's no way I'm doing that, so let's give him this one. Stefani gives them the presentation, hitting over and over how the target consumer is everyone. There's a group of adorable normal people in bathrobes and pajamas and their mouths open wide, then an intense set of biological and molecular diagrams about all kinds of things because, as Stefani says hilariously, "The Smartness Is In The Science!" Thanks for the recap title, Stef. She explains how their product is going to revolutionize the mouthwash industry one skanky gob at a time, and then James holds up the last poster, which is the aforementioned sleepy people, now overwhelmed by joy and freshness. "After all," Stefani underlines, "[Revolutionary Mouthwash Product In Which The Smartness Can Be Found, Via The Science] is everyone!" We're finally getting to see these storied presentation skills indoors, and I'm telling you: it's worth it. She's dazzling. Charming, forthright, believable as an authority, all of it. She's great.
Kinetic comes in and like, here's the thing. I would let Heidi win every week. I don't care. I am not strong enough to resist the power of Heidi. I don't care what company I'm the VP Marketing of, I don't care how many Merv Griffin blowjobs get me to the top: Trump says I gotta make the call, call's gonna be Heidi. I can't be held responsible. So she plops down some copies of the L.A. Times, with the supplement already inside -- nice -- and when they pull them out, it's eerily like a Neutrogena ad, only die-cut to look like two bottles of science living in harmony with each other. The presentation is super stupid and rambling, and I can't tell if Heidi's nervous, or forgot to prepare this part, or is sipping on syrup or what, but it's bad. Chopped and screwed bad, and it takes forever. Meanwhile, as they let their minds drift away from the nonsense she's talking, they turn the pages of the supplement: Heidi, looking ravishing. Kristine, looking lovely and secretly devilish and funny as usual. Nicole, wearing a necklace. So adorable, this thing. Of course, what with Stefani going all "everybody has bad breath" all over the previous one, and then the edit from before, you think: they look totally stupid like they're playing dress-up. But get this: the idea of having hot chicks for models is actually brilliant, now that I'm thinking about it.
