Trump dismisses the fellas, and they go out to the lobby. Out there, they share another hug, and another shake, and more love. "We've been through the woods, baby," Troy says. "We have," Kwame agrees. "Love you, man," Kwame says from the elevator. "I love you too, boss," Troy calls back before the doors close. Over Troy's exit, Trump voices over that Troy is "a tremendous competitor," he's just kind of raw at this point. "That was tough," Trump says to Carolyn. "That was a tough one," she agrees. "Good for him for lasting this long," she adds, which I think is a recognition of the fact that they like Troy, and they feel bad about firing him, and they're sort of looking for the bright side, which is that he still did pretty damn well, considering that on paper, he was right when he said that his qualifications didn't look like they measured up to the rest of the folks very well.
Troy leaves and gets in his cab. Kwame rolls his suitcase toward S4. Dum-dum! Dum-dum! Dum-dum! Da-da-da-da-da-da-dum-dum! Dum-dum! Well, you know.
Troy's exit interview is predictably lovely. He calls it "a chance of a lifetime," says he has no regrets, talks warmly about all the great people he met, and has nothing unpleasant to say about anyone. Because Troy, you see, knows that reality show fame is short, but life is long. Hear that, Katrina? No, I didn't think so.
Next week: Two cuts in the first half-hour. Yikes. Also, "two little words: Oma. Rosa." Okay, it's a horrifying prospect, but it's a hilarious preview.
