Jen tells us that she thought the tone of this discussion was fairly good, but she was skeptical that Chris could be effective in leading them when they already know that he thinks the team sucks. Hey, I think the team sucks, too, and...okay, I'm not leading them, but I like to think I'm their friendly older sister who offers wise counsel, pimple medicine, and the occasional kick in the head. Anyway, Jen has obviously never heard of being motivated by the desire to stick it to someone who underestimates you, which is really sad, because it's a lot of fun. Also, Jen's lips are just too damn shiny. Chris tells the team they need to "put up or shut up," and that will do it for that inspirational speech.
At Mosaic, the discussion over being the PM has become contentious, because Kelly isn't thrilled that the rest of the team won't just roll over when he says he wants to do it. Coming as it does with the free exemption next week if you win, Kelly really shouldn't expect other people to just go along, but he does. Andy is the one most resistant, saying that he wants it, too, so they can either give it to him or they can draw for it. "We're not handing it over to you," Maria snots, and Andy shrugs that that's fine; they can draw for it, then. Yeah, seriously. Why would you hand the reins to Andy when last time, all he did was bring you a decisive victory based almost entirely on his ability to outthink the rest of you? Please, that would be much too obvious. Maria makes this annoyed little head-shaking face like she can't believe Andy won't just give it up so that Kelly can lead them, and she shakes the names in her hand to be drawn. Andy voices over that for whatever reason, the team tried to run over him, and he didn't allow it. He reiterates that the exemptions get more important every week, and he feels like he's perfectly capable of getting the win. See? That's a kid who's willing to bet on himself, and that's why I think he's going to do well at whatever he winds up doing, once he files down a few of his more annoying quirks. Sandy picks Kelly's name, and Kelly gloats, all, "Good pick." I hate him. A lot. Andy nods.
