We move to Mosaic's House Of Pancakes Or Whatever, which is located at 99 Bank Street. Raj interviews that the men's team also used the "random drawing" method of choosing a PM, and this time, he came up as the big boss. We watch the team wander the space, which seems to be plain, but nice. Chris interviews that he sort of wishes he were the PM, because he "worked in restaurants [his] whole life" as a waiter and so forth. The team decides to capitalize on this expertise, and at a meeting in the restaurant space, Chris trains the rest of the guys in waiting tables. He tells us that in the training, he covered the basics of "schmoozing that client." Chris tells the guys, specifically, to "start a bullshit conversation," as Andy chuckles at the bluntness of the advice. Chris goes on to give quite the lesson in pretending people interest you, including the obligatory "ask them where they're from" strategy. "They're going to say, 'Well, I'm from the Village,' 'I'm from Bumblefuck, New York,' it doesn't matter." Poor Bumblefuck. It really needs a Chamber of Commerce to work on its image. (I generally say "East Bumblefuck" in the same situation, so I'm not making things harder for Bumblefuck proper.) The guys laugh as Chris explains that you then wait for "What do you fuckin' recommend?" (heh again), and Wes winds up with his head down on the table, laughing. "I fucking hate the public," Chris says with a frank grin. "I fucking hate them with a passion, but I know how to play the game." And I don't want to say Chris hacked into my emails, but...it's possible. "[Chris] has a great spirit for being the person in charge of customer service," someone chuckles. I wish I knew who it was, because it's really funny, and the way the guys all crack up tells you exactly what it is that they have at this point in the competition that the women don't have at all. Raj then gives an interview -- also really funny -- in which he says, "I had faith that he could...[here, Raj stops and makes a grand, expectant, sweeping arm gesture somewhere between "throwing up" and "presenting a gift to the Queen"]...swallow his disgust and make nice." Well, Raj definitely hasn't hacked into my emails. At least not the ones in the "Sent Items" folder.
