  6. "Because there's one thing where it's like, yeah, that's cool. But it's another thing that you say, yeah, I would pay 40k for that, right?" - 00:06:44-00:06:56

  7. "You click and it shows up right at your door. And when you go to somebody else's website and you want to buy something, they say, thank you, somebody will contact you soon." - 00:07:56-00:08:06
