MPDP's sure that the room is a home run or whatever sports metaphor you want to rely on. Gen says that you never know until the person sees it. MPDP asks whether the room was inspired purely by the Flyers, or just sports in general. Gen says it was based on being nine years old. She used some of the Flyers' colours and paraphernalia as a starting point. MPDP and Gen think that the bed area is really dramatic and cool. Gen thinks Jacob can grow into the room, and that it can be changed in ways so that it's still pretty cool when he's fifteen. MPDP loves the stripe. She also loves the lanterns and the jersey fabric. The close-up of one pillow shows the sheer black fabric over the orange, which on camera at least makes it looks sort of a brown colour. Gen says Jacob has brand-new desks which he can "use as a man" (huh?), and that there's a lot of space. Yes, but it's in a long thin strip -- not the most functional arrangement of desktop space. MPDP says that Gen did run over time-wise, in addition to being $10 over budget. Gen attributes a lot of that to getting suckered into buying sports paraphernalia: "But if it brings him joy for years, well...I'll pay $50 million over budget." Aw!
