dinners and desserts...

trying to sell you this thing.

I want us to gointo business

together, you and me.

I don't understand.- Okay.

Look, all I have to dois get a

team of peopleworking under me,

and then they get a teamof

people working under them,

and then weall start

profitingoff of each other.

See, the more peoplewe get

involved, the more money we make.

There's no chancewe can

failif we never give up.

Yes. Yes. Okay. So, what do you think?

Should we get everyoneup in the

storeselling these things? Huh?
