    Bill, awesome job on the recap!

    You know, when Jason was talking about not talking to the boss and no one agreed, I said to my brother,"If this doesn't work, he's going home," and guess what? It didn't work and he did go home. I really think Sam is an idiot though. The guys should be a laugh with him as the leader.

    But yeah, I really liked your recap, don't let Wayner tell ya any different, although I am sure he's a great recapper too!

    Thanks for an entertaining and insightful recap, Bill.
    Hey Sam, David is not dead, it’s okay buddy; he only went to the big garbage bin of Trump rejections in the sky. He can say hi to Marla and Ivana while he is there.
    Donnie immediately launches into every single cliché I have had the pleasure of hearing in the past, including the classic, “think outside the box”. The only thing missing was a reference to paradigms and post it notes.
    I suppose the best way to sum it up would be to say that Tammy apparently has one thing on her mind lately, and it is a growth business.
    Heidi took that as an invitation to get up on the table and go for the even more sexual route. I shutter to think what might have happened if there were brass pole nearby.
    His body language and inflection scream out “Jason is a big loser, now boot him so I can get back to sucking up to you properly Mr. Trump sir!”

    Bill are you really theDonald ?

    Naw I've seen pics , and you have way better hair. Also you aren't a doofus.
    Thanks for a great recap and some excellent insight. When Wayner returns from Macho Grande, I'm sure he'll be pleased at how well you pinch hit for him.

    Great job, Bill!

    Dude, Where’s My Jet?

    Given an advertising job at hand, they turn to Jason, who says he was worked in the field. I am not sure if hawking beef stick for Hickory Farms in a mall during the holidays counts as an advertising job, but hey, Jason seems like a nice guy, so let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.

    We are also treated to the obligatory cool hip dude on a scooter racing around the office. You see folks, that is how you know the Deutsch agency is fresh, and ready to create buzz with the Gen X’ers. If that is the best they can do, then perhaps the teams will be saving this account for Deutsch.

    Nevertheless, it was a disastrous move. Further, it seemed that Jason had a little bit of initial panic going on, but then they didn’t teach this stuff at smoked sausage school.

    Heidi took that as an invitation to get up on the table and go for the even more sexual route. I shutter to think what might have happened if there were brass pole nearby.

    Jason gives a strong answer in that they presented a “phenomenal package” (and here I thought that was the angle the ladies were pursuing?), but that it just wasn’t what the client wanted.
    Bill!! What a kickin' recap!! My favorite quotes in bold above, especially the Highlander quote!! Oh, and the hickory farms jokes! Nothin' like a well-timed sausage joke, especially in this recap. I have to tell you, I have so many jokes I'm holding wayyyy back right now! *shakes fist at PG-13 rule!* <--------(kidding, but not about the jokes in my head)

    Anyhow, I felt so "there" that I could have reached over and patted Donald's little fluff covered noggin. Two thumbs up!

    Personally I would have held out for Ereka to put a shirt on, and give up on the Brandy Chastain sport bra look, but that is just me.

    I was sitting in my leather recliner / recap chair, and I was screaming at my TV, “No Jason! No!”

    Bill, outstanding job!

    LG, you're right. I'll never be over Macho Grande. Those wounds run... pretty deep.

    Again, thanks for pinch-hitting for me this week Bill. A couple comments on that. First, I want to know where I can get one of those cool recapper chairs. Second, after reading this, I have a sneaking suspicion that I know exactly how Wally Pip must have felt.
