For some reason, we move from one team to another via transitional footage of trees. I suppose this is because...well, you know what they have in Pennsylvania? A lot of trees. Trees, and gutted steel mills. But mostly trees. Mosaic has selected a DeLonghi panini grill as its product, and Kelly is leading a heated discussion over the price. Kelly believes that the team should keep the price over $70 in order to maximize their revenue. Raj, on the other hand, believes that that price is too high. Kelly tries to tell Raj that's "it's basic supply and demand," to which Raj points out curtly that he's "familiar with this stuff." Ooh, things are getting tense over at the boys' table. Raj even says something about "price elasticity," meaning that he is now going to be the matinee idol of women everywhere who think conservative economists are sexy. All of whom can fit at one table at Burger King. As Kevin explains it, this argument came down to the fact that Raj believed that there was something psychological about $70 that meant they shouldn't go over that number. The interesting thing about this is that although the guys are disagreeing, they manage to do it in such a way that they're not attacking each other personally. Raj claims in an interview that, in fact, Kelly was "jockeying for the position of de facto leader of the team." It isn't clear whether this annoyed him, or whether he grudgingly respected it. Or, of course, both. There is a little more bickering over the price, but ultimately, it appears that Chris, the leader of the team, steps up and makes the choice that they're going to go with Kelly's recommendation of $71.25. Raj interviews that if he were the leader of the team, he would be concerned about having anyone else have as much power as Kelly has at this point. I'm not sure anyone worries about who has what power quite as much as Raj. I suspect he worries quite a bit about the Trilateral Commission.
