The movie's lead character, Peter, has lost his motivation and stopped going to his job at a software company.  In this scene, Peter returns to his work and meets with the consultants the company has brought in to interview each employee.  Their discussion illustrates the fundamental nature of the principal-agent problem in the workplace and mentions some potential solutions.  Humorously, the consultants are very impressed with Peter's attitude.
