There’s no "I" in "team" but there is one in "bitch."
“Ha. Kevin. Sucks to be you, dude.”
Although we’ll give the other designers (sans Wendy) credit for at least trying to put their game faces on.
But man, that bitch had it in for him the minute he was named team leader. She knew going into it that he wasn’t going to be good at it (as witnessed by his last go-round as a TL), but unlike Jay, who tried to just plow his way through a bad situation or Kara Saun, who tried to take over in a bad situation, Wendy’s first and only thought was “How can I make this bad situation work to my advantage?”
“Wendy, we’re such great friends!”
“Haha. Yes, that’s right. Wendy will never hurt you, Kevin. Do you hear me? Wendy. Will. Never. Hurt. You.”
Just look at her. “You will be mine, Kevin Johnn. Oh yes, you will be mine.”
Bitch, you’re not plotting for shares in Denver Carrington, you’re making a dress. Get to work and stop acting like you’re starring in your own personal soap opera.
“Would you be willing to say that to the judges?”
“Listen, I want to win. I’ll tell the judges he’s been shooting up in the sewing room if I have to.”
“Good. Carry on!”
What’s so exasperating about the whole thing is that Wendy’s observations about the team were for the most part, dead-on. She’s not a bitch for pointing out problems; she’s a bitch for not doing so until she was in front of a judge. If she had just voiced some of her concerns early in the process – and she was well aware of what was going wrong early in the process – she could have made the attempt to offer suggestions or corrections. She could have come out of this looking really good. Wendy’s problem is, she approaches the competition not with the thought of “How do I make myself look good here?” but with the thought of “How do I make someone else look really bad here?” Classic low self esteem.
Oh please. Wendy’s good at the soap-operatic threats. Hell, it’s the only way she knows how to think. When Kevin makes them they’re about as threatening as a toothless poodle.
