Liza jumps at the chance to point out how Stephanie directed the office scene at odds with what they mapped out earlier in the day. She says she was shocked by the changes when they got in the editing room. Trump asks if she noticed the weirdness of a person watching TV in an office meeting. She says she did and mentioned it to Stephanie. Stephanie reaches for a justification that these characters work in a "casual" office. Ivanka wonders why Stephanie didn't communicate the change in direction to Liza when she was out getting props. Stephanie insists that her changes didn't impact what props they needed and tries to bring it back to the location issue. I won't even go into the fact that you really don't need to be "on location" in an office. It's not Niagara Falls, for criminy's sake. To wit: The Office. Outsourced. Mad Men. All shows that take place in offices. I suspect they are not actually going to Scranton, Bangalore, or 1950s New York to film these shows. Stephanie, your logic sucks.
Trump asks Don if Liza contributed. Don says that Liza did the role she was assigned but acknowledges that Stephanie was the entire creative force on this project. He thinks Liza flies under the radar. Liza says Don visited when she was mostly out getting props. He comments on the scant amount of props she brought back to set, even saying that clothes aren't really props. Stephanie agrees, spitting out, "I had nothing!" Trump gets riled up at that comment, insisting she had a blank canvas on which she could have projected many scenarios if she had just directed Liza correctly. At this point, the boardroom has essentially dissolved into a three-way screaming match between the two ladies and Trump.
Trump asks Liza why the sports scene failed. Liza goes back to Stephanie changing the concept, at which point Stephanie claps her fingers together, gesturing for Liza to shut her mouth. The guys upstairs let out a shocked, "Ooooooooh!" Stephanie claims she envisioned a married couple at the baseball game. Liza asks why they didn't film that. Stephanie maintains it was because of the lack of props. So you added more people to the scene? That makes sense.
Ivanka chimes in. She notes that Stephanie owns her fundamentally bad concept but says it also bothers her that Liza hasn't seemed to contribute to the concept at all. Liza explains that Stephanie shut down all her concept, such as her "mom on the go" idea. Stephanie asks curtly, "And why didn't we do that?" Liza says Stephanie didn't want it. Ivanka thinks Liza must be bad at pitching her ideas because none of them have ever been used. Liza retroactively mentions how great her idea would have been and how it would have mentioned the product name immediately. Trump picks up on this and asks why it took so long to get to the brand name. Liza agrees with his indictment but doesn't answer the question, and Stephanie basically says nothing until she implicitly takes the blame by saying she directed the commercial.
