Nick and Amy show the place to a guy as Amy interviews that they decided that it's such a high price anyway that bargain-hunters aren't exactly the target demographic. So they decided to set a "high target," and they open by telling this guy that they've "entertained offers upwards of $40,000." I have no idea whether there's any truth to that -- probably not -- but again, she's phrasing it a little more softly than Troy is doing with the other lady. The guy seems mildly amused. "I think if you get $40,000 for this space...job well done. I don't think it's worth 40." He leaves. In an interview at S4, Amy says that although it's a great space, nobody pays anything like $40,000 these days, and she wasn't hearing anything more than about $10,000. "They were laughing at us," she says. At this point in the story, however, a guy named Ian comes to look at the penthouse with Nick and Amy. He loves it, adores it, has to have it -- but he wants it for a New Year's Eve party, and since the lease restrictions require the person to be out by midnight, that's not going to work. I found that a funny idea, though. "Five...four...three...two...one...Happy New Year! 'Should auuuulld acquaintance --'" "Okay, everybody out, right now." Amy talks about being bummed about this "deal that was lost."
Meanwhile, in the Trump office, Troy tells Team Oy Vey that he's looking for $32,000. They cough up an offer of $32,500, although they don't sound too excited about it. At the same time, however, Bill is showing the place to a couple of people upstairs, and they seem pretty into the place as well. As Troy is talking Team Oy Vey into a deal, Bill is approaching with Team Not So Fast. Kwame comes to the door and asks Troy into the hallway, where he explains this turn of events. Troy says that he'll go talk to Team Not So Fast, but somebody has to sit with Team Oy Vey. So poor Kwame is sent in to the be third person, of all things, to work on these poor people. Mr. Oy Vey immediately asks if this is "good cop, bad cop," which is exactly what I wondered, but Kwame insists that it's just "long, long day cop." Uh, good try, but I'm pretty sure that Team Oy Vey knows that there's no such thing as Long Day Cop, and if there were, it wouldn't be played by Troy when he could play Crushingly Manipulative Cop instead. Team Oy Vey looks very skeptical. Kwame interviews that the situation became kind of tricky at this point, what with the two simultaneous negotiations.
