This episode marks the first time that someone other than Trump, Carolyn, sits in the center seat in the boardroom.
This is the first time that there was complete silence during the entire taxi ride after the firing, when Josh, Mark, Jennifer M., and James are all thrown into one taxicab.
In a boardroom first, four candidates are fired at once. This is the fourth time Trump fires multiple people in the same boardroom, and the second time he does this before the final task, the first being when he fired season two's Maria and Wes.
Excel loses by a 108% margin! This is, by far, the worst defeat in the history of The Apprentice!
Mark: (After being fired, along with 3 others) Sorry we disappointed you, Mr. Trump. I'm better than that.
Trump: It's allright. I know you are. You're ALL better than that.
Carolyn: Who sold the most, Josh?
Josh: Rebecca sold the most, and Marshawn and Brian are close seconds.
Carolyn: Well, at least three of them got the point.
Mark: In simplest terms, it was a huge ass-kicking in epic proportions.
Alla: Markus, he's just a nice guy with very, very little ability to perform.
Felisha: This wasn't just a win - it was a fricken' slaughter.
Trump: Excel, I can't believe you let sales drop. That's embarrassing.
Alla: (About selling) Maybe this is one of the very, very few of Clay's talents.
Carolyn: (To Captial Edge team members who know little about golf, about a customer) How about giving this little guy a putter instead of a wedge?
Alla: I have four kids; I feel that Clay is a 5-year-old kid who just constantly needs to pout his chest. Clay is not a man - he is an insecure bitchy woman times one thousand.
Jennifer: I love the radar guns...is that what it's called?
James: (About the Task) It's a sure thing. It's a homerun.
Rebecca: I was feeling great about being on Excel Corporation, and I've been looking forward to working with intelligent people.
Josh: When you get a call telling you to pick your Project Managers, you know something funky's gonna happen.
Alla: We have to work as one cohesive unit, and I'm gonna make it happen.
Trump: (To Josh, Jennifer M., James, and Mark) And again, in this boardroom, we've never had a team lose so badly. You're all fired. All four are fired. (Pause.) Go home. Go home.
Carolyn, who is standing in for Trump, orders the already-picked Project Managers to send three candidates from their team over to the other side. Capital Edge's Alla chooses to get rid of Rebecca, Marshawn, and Jennifer M., while Excel's Josh picks Clay, Adam, and Markus. Thus, Capital Edge now consists of Alla, Felisha, Randal, Clay, Markus, and Adam, and Excel consists of Josh, Rebecca, Jennifer M., Mark, James, Marshawn, and Brian.
The Project Managers in this episode are Josh for Excel and Alla for Capital Edge. Alla's team wins.
Capital Edge unanimously votes to give Alla exemption for next week. This is the fourth unanimous vote in a row.
Rather than ask Project Manager Josh to bring two people back into the boardroom, Trump decides that since Brian (who is exempt, anyway), Rebecca, and Marshawn all did the best job at selling, they should go back to the suite. He asks Josh, James, Jennifer M., and Mark to come back to the boardroom since all of them did the worst job on the task. All four get fired for performing so terribly.
