Anyway, Boyfriend Bill interviews that this guy getting up and walking out "could have been a fatal blow," so they went back to concentrate on Team Oy Vey. Kwame quickly negotiates a relieved Team Oy Vey to a deal for $35,001 -- as Kwame explains, he figures that if the other team gets $35,000, then they'll have that dollar to beat them with. I think that Protégé's feeling was that nobody was likely to get more than $35,000, so with $35,000, they were mostly safe. "Price Is Right-style," Kwame explains in an interview about the one dollar. Nice.
Their deal done, Protégé leaves the building. It's dark outside. Bill interviews from S4 that as of Protégé's departure, he thinks Nick and Amy were looking pretty "panicked" in the lobby, so he's optimistic. "I think it's time to gas up the jet," he says with a smile. Oh, Boyfriend Bill. Never poke the fates in the eyeball. Er, eyeballs.
Back in the lobby, Nick and Amy are sitting, looking quite miserable indeed. This is Amy's first-day outfit, though, so I'm quite confident that this entire sequence is completely displaced, temporally speaking. Amy interviews that they talked to a ton of event planners, but they had a very hard time finding any that could get there in time to do the deal by this silly deadline. With nothing else to do, Amy starts asking Nick what's up with redheads always dating redheads. Nick insists that he's never dated a girl with red hair. As they sit there a couple of minutes before the deadline, Ian the New Year's Guy returns. He does want to make a deal for the penthouse. He's over the lease issue, or the lease issue is worked out, or something. Nick walks over and says something to Ian, and before you know it, they're signing the lease. Nick interviews that this was "an act of God," but that he also likes to think that it happened because he's such a good salesman. Meh. But all of a sudden, Amy's all happy with him again, so whatever. And now...Amy is wearing a completely different outfit. Come on, now. I mean, I'm not measuring the length of shadows or anything, but I do notice when a woman completely changes her appearance right in the middle of what you're trying to convince me is a scene. Just saying.
