RockSolid experience. First off, Bret's not in a costume as he hands out a brochure as the kids (or "nerdlingers," as he refers to them) enter. They do have a giant "opening spring 2010" poster, which is a good sales pitch. And there's smoke everywhere. Curtis comes out as the professor, and leads the kids in one at a time. Inside, it's mostly a big room, but they get to wear the magic hat and they get wands that actually light up and knock the tree over. Bret's watching Curtis lead the kids through and he's like, "Oh my God, all of us are going to prison after this creepy castle ride." Plus, there's so much smoke that no one can see anything or breathe. The executive came in, and asked what kind of rides there will be, and Curtis calls Rod over, who can't remember the name of the dragon roller coaster. At the end, Bret gives them merchandise and then reminds them when the exhibit opens. He tells us it was such a disaster and so funny that they have to win. Ha. After it's over, the kids give their opinion. They all seemed to think the guys were funnier, but the girls got the actual canon of Harry Potter across better. They ask them to vote, which is of course when they go to commercial. The suspense is just killing me.
Boardroom. George and Erin wait as the teams enter, then Trump makes his dramatic entrance. He asks Rod if they won. Rod's cautiously optimistic, and likes what they did. He thought his team was great, and Bret was a superstar. Trump asks Bret how Rod did, and Bret says he was in Florida, so it was tough, but he did a great job. Michael disagrees, that Rod didn't give enough direction. He just gave a task without any direction. Trump asks Goldberg how their team communicated through their leader, and Goldberg says it was tough. He says Rod was good, but not as good as past PMs, partially because of the nature of the task. Curtis then says it was difficult because Rod couldn't text or e-mail. He says it would have been a big advantage if he could have e-mailed or texted, but they made it work. Rod disagrees, and says that he gave them instructions that Bret would work as PM on the ground while he traveled. Erin says the guys weren't mean about Rod, but she felt like they were unsure about his vision.
