The Trump motto of the week is "Perseverance." We watch him negotiate a deal involving $250,000, so he's apparently negotiating the price of dinner or something.
Net Worth is at the Manhattan BK office, where the chef is explaining about the new burger that has onion rings on top. Now, some of the EEFPs expressed surprise at the idea of putting onion rings on top of a burger, but I have to say, I see that all the time. The room service cheeseburgers that the Couch Baron and I recently enjoyed while I was in New York staying at the charming Marriott Brooklyn Bridge (highly recommended!) had onion rings on them. ["It's a burger staple at Jersey diners." -- Sars] Kristen rejects several other burgers on the basis that nobody likes jalapeno peppers, the cheese one has too much cheese, another one is actually a piece of chicken pretending to be a burger...so they go with the onion-ring one, known as the "Western Angus."
Magna reviews the burgers, and Verna says that based on her experience as a fast-food-scarfing consumer (hee), she would frankly go with the three-cheese. Which also has bacon, which is nice. Danny informs us that they went with this burger based on Verna's verdict of, and I quote, "[tongue click] Right on." He so exhausts me already. Todd tells the team that now that they know what they're doing, he wants to send Stephanie and Danny off to work on marketing. He sends them to BK headquarters for a meeting. A meeting, that is, that we are all happy not to be attending.
And then Alex, who is working as the "restaurant manager," explains how he's organizing the staff, including Verna and Erin on cash register duty. Yep, only two of them. "At this point, what I'd like to do is start training," Todd says. By which he means that he would like everyone else to start training. He's going to be off scratching his head and making Smart Faces for the camera. String music kicks in as we watch Bren learn to make a Whopper Junior, because seriously, that is some touching ketchup application. And then we get a great shot of the cash register, which is awesome, because it has a button that says, "REDUCE FATMAY." I don't know why that makes me giggle, but it does. I do believe that the amount of FATMAY in the universe could stand to be reduced. While Erin is being trained for customer service, the trainer tells her not to put her hand on her hip. Like, you know, a bitch. Heh. Verna interviews with some exasperation that she doesn't think Erin's ever even visited a fast-food restaurant. I think that may be disturbingly close to accurate. Erin is indeed rather flummoxed by the cash register, and there's a great shot of George and Carolyn watching with amusement as these clowns try to master a task they undoubtedly find rather beneath their dignity. George tells us that he used to be a soda jerk, back in the day. Aw, George. You're no kind of jerk. It's why you don't fit in on this show.
