The Top Designers shuffle out of the room for the second time this evening, taking Andrea with them this time, and leaving the judges to get in their last round of catty comments. The regular judges moan about poor Matt and the awful organization task that was thrust upon him. Mark Rios is still nattering on about how Matt didn't compose while he organized; I am fantasizing about composing a knuckle sandwich for Mark Rios. Kelly thinks that Goil should have spent less time on the dog bed with wheels: "What kind of dog likes to be on wheels?" I dunno -- any one that's ever ridden in a car? It's a minor quibble, though, especially given Ryan's offenses to humanity: "He was very contrite this week about last week," Jonathan begins, "but then he started to go into some whole meshugena thing about how he would make a socio-political statement." "It's a garage," Margaret agrees in the same dismissive tone I used early to sneer at the entire premise behind this challenge and takes this opportunity to taunt chief-Ryan-defender Kelly: "Where the hell was the art this week? Where was the big idea, Kelly? He always has the big idea. And you've been charmed by that. But he didn't have anything." If Kelly's face could reflect human emotion, she'd be furious at Margaret; instead she sputters something about how Ryan was "following Andrea's lead," which inspires Margaret to give an "oh, come on look. Because, really -- come on. As for Erik, it was a good thing he stuck the window dressing up at the last moment, because that's the only thing saving him from the derisive fury the judges are targeting at Michael. "I just know he is the author of the color of those curtains," Jonathan sighs. "Of course, he is," Margaret cackles. "He's never met a shade of grape he doesn't love," Jonathan adds. "Burn the witch! Burn the witch! Cleanse the earth with fire!" the judges chant. Or they don't. But they really just should at this point. That leaves Carisa, who is chided by Margaret for going off and doing her own thing. Jonathan counters that, unlike the other designers, she at least inserted herself into the project instead of going along to get along. "But that was a sideshow," Margaret complains. Jonathan will hear none of it, likely because he luuuuuuuuuuuuuuurves Carisa and all that she does. Thus ends the discussion; let's go break some poor Top Designer's heart.
