Lee wanders around town bothering strangers far afield from the site, and giving himself tons of Fellatio Alger about how he's the next Young Donald Trump. He tells this guy he wants to sell him a thousand sandwiches. And the guy agrees, so suddenly he's all chuffed about how he's a dealmaker and he's got "big deals" going down, and I think about Ray Liotta for an hour while he yaks, because Lee is really just less appealing every second this bullshit goes on. He's so fucking "ballsy" ["Hey Joe, what's a..." -- Jacob] ["Don't." -- Joe R.] that, just like Trump, he...asked someone to buy a thousand sandwiches. Just like Trump would! Gotta think big! Life is short! Know your customer! He wanders back through New York City toward the 7-Eleven, and tells Leslie about the sandwich deal. She authorizes him to sell at $3. The guys wants $2. Lee gives up. So fucking ballsy.
Tarek continues to lose his mind out on the street, while Charmaine and Tammy go crazy on the customers and sell, sell, sell. Lee and Leslie discuss the big "deal" he's brokered, and she authorizes him to try $2.50. He pantses around and tells her it's a "home run," and it's like...it's sandwiches, made of pizza. Not the Google IPO. My notes say Leslie's "something" is tingling. I don't know. Probably she said "stomach," but it's funnier this way.
Gold Rush New Rushee Michael greets George at the door. His ass, specifically. He tells George it was Lee's idea to clear out all the other sandwiches, and Lee calls the guy, who can't do $2.50. So he cries like a ballsy little bitch, and Leslie tells him it was a good try. Charmaine is I think a little bit disgusted. She interviews that he lost himself an hour of manpower time -- and you'd think Lee of all people would want to show what a hard worker he is, considering as they get punchier and crazier they're only going to resent him more for the holidays, even if they can't admit it. You don't think you'd stab somebody for a peanut butter sandwich until you watch Big Brother and see how near the surface the beast really is -- but that she feels really good about this. "We did great today. Michael was a great addition, he fit right in and worked really hard." Another thing Lee was right about. "We need this. It's Leslie's birthday tomorrow and she wants a win and a lovely reward. I think the stars are aligning and it's finally our turn." Meaning they're all going to be fired, and possibly doused in gasoline and ignited.
