Tenacity. Cyndi regales Maria with tales of lifting Dennis Rodman while they carry props into the truck. On the way back, she compares herself to the Egyptian slaves since she's been sent off to pick up props for the last several tasks, then quips, "Now I know why Dennis Rodman started drinkin'." Awesome. She notes the upside to all the manual labor is she's losing weight. Maria loves her energy and VOs that it's an important to have that in their group.
Over at RockSolid, Bret flirts with the graphic designer. He thinks the advertorial is in great shape. Michael comes over to check up on him and worries that his advertorial looks too ad-like and not like four pages of Time magazine. They have a fundamental disagreement: Bret wants to be all rock star about it and think outside the box, using black backgrounds and flashy graphics. Michael wants to play it safer and use the same format as the example the executives handed them. Michael uses his PM veto power to force Bret's hand.
A bit later, Gavin Maloof arrives to see their progress. Michael shows him the layout they have so far, which features about one picture on the first page. Yep, one picture. That's all. Hopefully just a starting point. Maloof agrees that it's too wordy and, therefore, might not be quick and catchy enough for most readers. Michael is miffed that Gavin took up his time by not grasping his vision fast enough. He adds that he wouldn't change his vision for anyone at this point. I mean, it's not like Maloof was sent there to report back to Trump or anything. Michael = drunk on power.
Tenacity. As the photo shoot wraps up, the ladies worry that they took too much time because they still haven't written their editorial copy or put together their Powerpoint presentation. Multitasking shakes its head. Holly grows frazzled as she crunches against the deadline to put everything in on time. She admits she doesn't know exactly how it's going to look when they present it to the executives.
