[CLAUDIA] Doc's more impressive
than I thought.

She can turn this out
a lot faster than I...

Faster ain't always better.

She in a hurry to work herself
out of this current situation.

But quality control
is everything right now.

I think it's time we go bigger.

[TOMMY] After we move this,
then we can go wider.

[CLAUDIA] Well, why not right now?
We're already heavy in the clubs.

Yeah, and we gonna do
twice as many clubs tomorrow.

- And then what?
- This is the then what.

We creating the demand
before the supply.

We gonna get everybody hyped
on this thing.

Yeah, that seems kind of backwards.

You know what?
You need to start trusting me.


Okay. Go on.

We gonna make it so everybody
who want it

can get down with it.

And I mean everybody.

The current version is nice,

but shit priced too high.

Nothing compares
to the effects of Dahlia.

People will pay a premium for it.

Small group of people.

Now, I know what you thinking.

We ain't going low rent,
just affordable housing.

We got the doc cooking
this shit up for us,

but our margins is gonna be f*cked

if we keep producing
with the current cut.

So what we gonna do is,

we gonna set up the rollout
with the prime,

and then we gonna come at them
with the new version

of Dahlia everyone can afford.

and this ain't no GED.
