Elementary ‐The Office ‐ Closing The Deal (C0205)
Mr. Smith: I’m glad you could find time to meet with me, Mr. Johnson. I can’t think of a nicer environment for our meeting today, the ambiance here is lovely!
Mr. Johnson: No problem, if possible I always combine business with pleasure. Now, let’s hear more about these chocolates you’re offering.
Mr. Smith: Well, as you know, I have recently become the sole distributor for Grangers Gourmet Bon-bons here in the United States. They’re a new manufacturer and are looking to break into the luxury market. Naturally, your restaurant sprang into my mind immediately. I think your brand exemplifies many ofthe same traits as Grangers and serving these chocolates would really add to your reputation for providing elegant, luxurious, first class dining.
Mr. Johnson: Hmmm, sounds interesting. . . . gourmet chocolates , where are they produced? Belgium?
Mr. Smith: Actually, the factory is located in Scotland.
Mr. Johnson: Really? I didn’t think they were known for their luxury chocolate production. . .
Mr. Smith: That’s what makes this such a fantastic opportunity! The government is one hundred percent supportive of creating new export markets and has guaranteed a low tariff for all wholesale orders of over one thousand units. They’ve also reduced the red tape involved at customs as well. Here, I brought these especially for you, try one!
Mr. Johnson: Oh, thanks. Mmm, hmm, creamy texture, smooth. . . .
Mr. Smith: Unique aren’t they? I bet you’ve never tasted anything like it! Quality is assured as I personally visit the factory to make sure no one’s cutting corners with the ingredients. Only the cr `eme de la cr `eme make it through inspection.
Mr. Johnson: Yes, very interesting flavors. . . . . . . Slightly spicy, very unique, that’s for sure. Exactly what ARE the ingredients?
Mr. Smith: I have it on highest authority that this traditional secret recipe has been handed down inthe Granger family for generations. I’m sure you can keep a secret. Buttermilk, cacao beans, sugar and Haggis.
Mr. Johnson: Haggis? What’s Haggis?
Mr. Smith: It’s a traditional Scottish delicacy; you take sheep’s liver, heart and lung and stuff it inside ofthe sheep’s stomach.
Mr. Johnson: Ah, get back to you.
Mr. Smith: Mr. Johnson? Mr. Johnson?
