The sun comes up, just like in The Lion King, but with less singing, at least for the moment. We return to the suite, where the team has decided to take matters into its own hands, and Danny is calling Rhona on the Rhonaphone to report that Verna has fled the coop. He tells her that they'd appreciate it if she'd pass along to Trump the message that Verna is gone. Rhona agrees to pass along that message, and of course, she has one of her own -- the team should meet Trump in Times Square ASAP. That's all she says -- "as soon as possible." So apparently, Trump's just standing around waiting for them. We watch the team stroll toward Times Square, where indeed, they encounter Trump and the Viceroys just pulling up in their limo. Great timing! Trump and his pink tie talk about how tough the experience is, and give Verna's departure a shout-out. "Verna couldn't hack it. She quit! She left!" He is such a soft touch. Oh, and I am in love with Audrey's gigantic hoop earrings, which I could put around my rather thick wrists without difficulty. Danny looks all sad, but Trump goes on to say that "in life, people quit." He asks whether anybody else would like to leave. Unfortunately, no one does. It really could have sped up the show if they had. They all say "no," though, and kind of emphatically.
Trump introduces the task by saying that Nestle is the biggest food company there is. Worth more than $100 billion. "So that's $96 billion more than I'm worth!" Trump says with shock. "And I'm not happy with that!" The candidates laugh, just the way they would if it were funny. Of course, if he were capable of being funny, he might not have the four billion, so he might want to quit while he's ahead. Trump says that they'll be working with Nescafe Taster's Choice, and adds that "it's really good, believe me," as if he has ever had instant coffee in his entire life, other than maybe espresso powder on his sidewalk whenever it snows. Trump explains that each team will have a $75,000 budget from the two Nestle execs who are present. The challenge will be to "create a marketing campaign" for Nescafe, using big ideas. Big! Ideas! Like...mime! Hold on to that. And again, the winning team will be the one that creates "the most buzz" and "the most excitement." And the losers will go to the Boardroom. Oh, and he reminds Michael of his exemption. Sigh. We hate Michael's exemption! Trump greets a bunch of fans as he's leaving, because he is all mobbed by the common people now. He's like the Pied Piper of Money, except that if anyone tries to follow him, he has them shot.
