Trump decides he wants to see their commercial, and it's tiny seizures all around. Bill clenches his fist. Carolyn clenches her face. Trump explains that he's not a "big computer person," than in fact he "love[s] buildings," but that in essence he doesn't know what the hell that was about. Carolyn points out the big problem, that it was too much info in too little time, which is the point. The guy told them it was 2.5 minutes of material, and instead of cutting it down, they just shot it at you like that guy with the mustache who sold Matchbox cars back in the day. As a person who might be described as "somewhat wordy," I can kind of identify, but, like, just give me a limit and I'll find a way. There was no reason to chop out the storyline in favor of the word explosion, except that they were both exhausted and Alla is pretty much nuts. The responsibility for explaining this falls upon Bill, and he asks if this was, in fact, Felisha's idea. She truthfully says it wasn't, and Alla gets nuts. She goes like this: "You're kidding me. Felisha, shame on you. I'm sorry, shame on you. Shame on you!" It's amazing. Just amazing.
Felisha explains that it was Alla that wanted the words, and Alla goes, "Wow. You didn't let me make one move!" Trump draws it out: "But I thought she wasn't a leader? Whose idea was the text?" Alla jumps on it: "We did it together. Are you denying that, Felisha?" Felisha's like, "Yes? Insofar as that was the one big thing you demanded? And you threatened me with the hose again? So we did it?" Trump asks whether Felisha was "outdone" by Alla, and Felisha equivocates with her belief that "one person" is not better than the other, that they both have strengths, all that schoolyard bullshit, seemingly having missed the memo that that kind of talk is rendered irrelevant since one of them will be going home in a few seconds, and I start feeling the balance shifting: Felisha's inability to take step one in covering her own ass or even making a basic case here is almost to the point of frustrating me more than Alla's outright evil and deception. [" Which, in my opinion, Alla could have pointed out without all this nastiness. Why she went with this strategy instead of just repeating the phrase 'Felisha is a follower' is beyond me." -- Sars] Felisha spends most of the time, bizarrely, talking about how awesome Alla is, strong in "embracing" and "executing" her tasks, but "when it came down to the punchline, this was my task." This is funny, but none of the people in that room are ready to laugh about it.
