Little Protégé appears in the Boardroom, and they are soon joined by Trump. He eyeballs them, telling them they were "badly beaten." "I didn't see any creative ideas from any of you," he says. He asks Troy what happened. Troy says that they all came up with the idea for the prepaid cards that they thought was good, but they didn't have the "brilliant idea" for advertising that VersaCorp had. "Our idea was great; theirs was brilliant," he says. "Sometimes that's just the way it goes." Heidi looks at Trump. "How come you keep shaking your head?" he asks her. Shocked, she turns defensive, insisting that she wasn't. You know what happened there? Heidi overplayed her hand with regard to Trump liking her. She tried to repeat the Assorama business from last week, with the shooting looks at Donald like, "Only you and I know the truth," and she overdid it, which makes her seem like a particular brand of suck-up, I think. Trump tells her that it looks to her like she's visibly disagreeing with Troy.
Carolyn comes riding into battle, addressing Heidi. "Would you say that it's fair to say that you kind of put all of your eggs in one basket -- came up with this idea, made a couple of appointments the day before, and did nothing after that? Would you say that's a fair assessment?" Heidi says no, she wouldn't. And, notably, while Carolyn was asking the question, Heidi looked totally, visibly disgusted. Carolyn asks her what they came up with, other than the prepaid cards. Troy asks if he can answer. "Well, I directed it at Heidi," Carolyn says. Heidi, rather than answering the question, says, "You know what? He came up with that idea, he was adamant on doing it, so I supported it, and to be honest with you, I thought that would be a good idea." So what about that makes Carolyn's assessment not fair? Doesn't that make Carolyn's assessment perfectly fair, Heidi? Hmmmmm? Trump asks her if she thinks it was a good idea now, and she says no. George asks Heidi if she's saying it was basically Troy's idea, and she says yes, it was. Well, she hedges a lot, and then she says yes, it was. Troy says that he wants to point out that the other team also put all its eggs in one basket. Troy should really see it coming, but he doesn't. Trump basically tells him that a basket can hold as many eggs as you want if it's a good basket, rather than a basket that assumes that people buy pedicab rides in bulk.
