Over footage of Markus wandering around explaining nothing to nobody, Josh again gives his always cute but less and less interesting opinion on Markus: "He runs interference? You might even think he works with the women's team...when we're all rowing in the same direction, he's actually out of the boat looking for another boat to get into." And talking his lame ass off about it, too. Later, Chris will repeat this almost word for word, and that's interesting, because I think Josh is exactly the player I think he is, and next week we'll see his words coming out of some other Excelmate's face. Someone asks everyone at the shoot to disregard all the things that Markus says. Markus literally wanders into the street and Josh gets even more irritated; Chris is willing to just ignore him until Josh points out that he's standing in the middle of the shot. Josh calls him back over to the group and Markus comes running, and he even runs like a jackass.
Chris takes Markus's phone away and Markus throws it to him, underhanded -- just as Chris tells him not to throw it. That's this whole episode: Markus doing the precisely wrong thing at the exact same time that you're telling him what not to do. Chris tells the driver to ignore anything Markus says for the rest of the day, and interviews to us the result, that Markus literally has zero responsibilities for the rest of the day. They get their shot and it's beautiful, the sun setting as the car zooms past. "If you can't have the responsibility and the wherewithal to direct traffic, how in the world can you run one of Donald Trump's businesses?" He complains that he can't trust his faith in the task as PM with Markus around, and there are silent shots of him looking awfully poetic and thoughtful and thugged out. They wrap and everyone's happy, except for Markus, who's, like, willfully avoiding being a team player at all costs, now bugging a camera operator and ignoring everybody.
Marshawn discusses the print stuff with Felisha, and interviews that she's concerned about the print ads more because of the deadline. She feels confident with Alla, Jen M., and Kristi being responsible for the video. We see Alla two-waying to Marshawn about how she's staying with the print team. The Three Blonde Video Ladies are grossed out by this and Kristi interviews that the video is 90% of the task -- not taking part in it is "crazy." George calls the video "a little too hodgepodge," but thinks it gets the point across. I'm not questioning George, but I think that might be slightly warped by his old-man brain. "MTV and video games will rot your mind" and all that grandpa stuff. "No bee-bee-bee-bee-beeps."
