Best. Boardroom Firing. Ever.

I need to smoke four cigarettes after that one.

That? Was just so many layers of awesome piled into one.

Also, the fact that they all had to pile into one taxi took them all down a much needed peg and was entirely hilarious and wow, so awesome.

Even Robin sounded kind of disgusted by their loss.

Mass layoffs? Dayum. Just when I thought this show couldn't surprise me anymore. That last shot of the four of them uncomfortably stuffed into the cab was hilarious.

Best cab-terview EVER! The four of them sitting soooo uncomfortably all in the backseat…priceless!

But I completely disagree with firing all four of them. I would have liked to have seen more of Mark and James (mostly because he’s pretty). But I was really starting to like Mark.

I thought for sure at the beginning when they did the team switching that Josh’s team (I can’t remember the names of the teams anymore) would kick Alla’s ass. I mean, Markus? And Clay? I thought they were going down in flames.

Too bad I didn’t have any alcohol to drink whenever someone said “At the end of the day”. I’d be wasted right now.

Finally!! A "Step up to the plate" metaphor on a task that ACTUALLY involved baseball!! (At least a little...)

That was pretty awesome, but I don't think I agree with it - the two guys in the batting cage (I want to say Mark and ....Ryan? (as it turns out, James. I feel as though I should know more names by this point in the season.) shouldn't have been fired, I don't think. Sure, it was a sales task, but once they were assigned to work the batting cage, what were they supposed to do, tell the line of kids waiting that they weren't selling enough stuff and so they were going to have to shut it down?

My head just exploded. Because the boardroom first was ACTUALLY a boardroom first!

So does this cut the season short by three eps or what?

That shot of them in the cab all pressed together and looking like they wanted to throw up? Priceless.

Damn! I was only joking about the taxi ride to Sequesterville in the Spoilers.....Who knew that I was actually right?? That was a crowded ass ride to sequester! Dayum!

The silence in the taxi was too funny.

The only thing I enjoyed more than that boardroom was the long, silent, uncomfortable cab ride afterward.

SWEET!

Oh my goodness! That was great. So not taking it off my dvr.

Also, I never realized Carolyn had a personality. I liked her in this episode.

Oooo, maybe Excel will become Brian, Rebecca, Marsaun and Randall. That would be great.

ETA: Brian, not Adam. Sorry.

I was glad that Rebecca & Marshawn were praised rightly in the boardroom.

The cab ride was hilarious. I wish they'd shown more of it.

Send ‘em all home in the same freakin’ cab! That is the best reality TV moment EVAH!!! OK, maybe not the best, but gotta be in the top five.

Brother Bill, please stop nodding at DT like a bobble head doll. You got the job.

“Life continues.” Trump as philosopher.

I had other thoughts, but honestly, they flew out of my head after I saw them crammed in the back seat of the same cab, totally silent. Beautous.

Whoa whoa!?! What just happened?
That was kinda cool because I totally wasn't expecting that.
Too bad we never got to see what James was made of, other than his baseball skills? He was never PM right?

Rebecca and Marshawn are being set up lovely for the final 4.

WTF! What, are they just trying to accommodate a shorter season? Yes, Excel was miserable, but why fire four people in one shot other than for the sheer shock value of it. I could have settled for Trump firing Jennifer because she opened her mouth about being the sales queen, but wasn’t it Josh’s responsibility as project manager to focus the team on the sales aspect of the task? Either Josh or Jenn should have been let go.
