00:00:49It's hard to keep up.
00:00:53There. That's better. That's america.
00:00:56See, America still sets the tone for the world.

00:01:32In Odessa, Texas, the great Frank Cushman.
00:01:36This april, 26 teams will be falling all over themselves...
00:01:39to sign him in the next NFL draft.
00:01:42He's my client, my most important client.
00:01:44When are you gonna try? When are you gonna concentrate? You wanna be a champion?
00:01:48(MAN CONTINUES) Believe me, there's genius everywhere, but until they turn pro...
00:01:51It's like popcorn in the pan; Some pop...
00:01:53What the heck, coach? You don't know diddly-squat about golf!
00:01:56MAN: Some don't. You little shit!
00:01:59I'm the guy you don't usually see.
00:02:02I'm the one behind the scenes.
00:02:04I'm the sports agent. Wayne, I'm gonna hurt you this year.
00:02:08How're you doin'? I'm doin' fine.
00:02:10Listen, door's always open if you wanna come and get a real agent.
00:02:13Thanks. You're welcome, Johnnie.
00:02:15I'm gonna go to a meeting now, and I'm gonna talk about you.
00:02:17'Cause I kill for you. I'm an animal for you.
00:02:19We gotta win super bowls. I hail you.
00:02:22Hey, Jerry, how're you doin'? All right.
00:02:25MAN: How much is this gonna cost me?
00:02:26You and I both know there's a number you can afford.
00:02:30So I'm just gonna write it down, and we can move forward from there.
00:02:34I can't afford that. No one said winning was cheap.
00:02:38(CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKS) You know those photos...
00:02:40where the new player holds the team jersey and poses with the owner?
00:02:43That's me on the left.
00:02:45Inside that building, that's where I work.
00:02:47S.M.I... Sports Management International.
00:02:50Reebok came in with four million.
00:02:53(CONTINUES) 33 out-of-shape agents guiding the careers of 1,685...
00:02:56of the most finely tuned athletes alive.
00:02:58You gotta be tough. I already have 18 million.
00:03:01I handle the lives and dreams of 72 clients
00:03:03and get an average of 216 phone calls a day.
00:03:05It's what I do.
00:03:06I will not rest until I have you holding a coke,
00:03:09wearing your own shoe, playing a sega game...
00:03:11while singing your own song in a new commercial starring you,
00:03:13broadcast during the super bowl in a game you are winning.
00:03:16I will not sleep until that happens.
00:03:18It's what I do best. I'll give you 15 minutes to call me back.
00:03:20(SIREN WAILS) I'll be honest with you.
00:03:22I started noticing it a few years ago and didn't say a word.
00:03:25FEMALE REPORTER: Was the girl 16 or 17?
00:03:26In the quest for the big dollars, a lot of little things were going wrong.
00:03:30There's no proof of anything except this guy is a sensational athlete!
00:03:34There was no girl! That's bullshit!
00:03:35Are you Calvin Nack? Can you sign my card?
00:03:40I'm sorry, little fella. I can't sign this particular brand of card.
00:03:44Only pro-jam blue dot cards.
00:03:46I just wanted an autograph.
00:03:50Lately, it's gotten worse.
00:03:52SPORTCASTER: Remo with the puck, and... oh, he goes down!
00:03:59Hi, baby.
00:04:02Do you know your name? Uh...
00:04:05(WHISPERS) Steve Remo. Uh...
00:04:08WIFE: Steven Remo. Oh, wait. It's coming.
00:04:12My name is Steve Remo. Yeah.
00:04:15I play for Chicago. This lady here is my wife.
00:04:19(CHUCKLES) Hi, baby.
00:04:21And this is my boy, and this is, uh,
00:04:26Uh, uh, wait.
00:04:28My agent. My agent.
00:04:31I gotta play this weekend. If I play 65% of my games, I get a bonus.
00:04:37I gotta get the bonus.
00:04:41Okay, Jesse. You take care, little guy.
00:04:43Mr. Maguire? Yeah?
00:04:45This is his fourth concussion. Shouldn't somebody get him to stop?
00:04:48(BEEPER BEEPING) It would take a tank to stop your dad.
00:04:53It would take all five Super Trooper Vr Warriors...
00:04:58To stop your dad.
00:05:01Right?
00:05:03Right?
00:05:06Fuck you.
00:05:11(CONTINUES) Who had I become? Just another shark in a suit?
00:05:27(MAN TALKING, INDISTINCT)
00:05:33With the skyrocketing salaries, and you are one of the guys responsible.
00:05:38(JESSEE'S VOICE) Fuck you.
00:05:40(VOICES OVERLAPPING)
00:05:42(JERRY CONTINUES) Two days later at our corporate conference in Miami,
00:05:46A breakthrough. MAN: I already had 18 million on the table.
00:05:49Breakdown? Breakthrough.
00:05:51BOY: I just want an autograph. JESSE: Fuck you.
00:05:54DOCTOR: Do you know your name?
00:05:57JERRY: I couldn't escape one simple thought.
00:06:02I hated myself.
00:06:06No, no, no. Here's what it was.
00:06:09I hated my place in the world.
00:06:18I had so much to say and no one to listen.
00:06:21(TYPING, BEEPS)
00:06:23And then it happened.
00:06:28It was the oddest, most unexpected thing.
00:06:33I began writing what they call "A Mission Statement."
00:06:36Not a memo, a mission statement.
00:06:38You know, a suggestion for the future of our company.
00:06:43A night like this doesn't come along very often.
00:06:46I seized it.
00:06:49What started out as 1 page became 25.
00:06:53Suddenly, I was my father's son again.
00:06:57I was remembering the simple pleasures of this job...
00:07:00How I ended up here out of law school;
00:07:02The way a stadium sounds when one of my players performs well on the field;
00:07:06The way we are meant to protect them in health and in injury.
00:07:10With so many clients, we had forgotten what was important.
00:07:15I wrote and wrote and wrote and wrote,
00:07:18And I'm not even a writer.
00:07:20I was remembering even the words of the original sports agent, my mentor,
00:07:24The late, great Dicky Fox, who said...
00:07:26The key to this business is personal relationships.
00:07:30JERRY: Suddenly it was all pretty clear.
00:07:32The answer was: Fewer clients.
00:07:35Less money. More attention.
00:07:38Caring for them, caring for ourselves and the games too.
00:07:41Just starting our lives, really.
00:07:44I'll be first to admit it. What I was writing was somewhat touchy-feely.
00:07:49I didn't care. I had lost the ability to bullshit.
00:07:53It was the me I'd always wanted to be.
00:07:59I took it in a bag to a copymat in the middle of the night...
00:08:02And printed up 110 copies.
00:08:04Even the cover looked like the catcher in the rye.
00:08:07I entitled it, the things we think and do not say:
00:08:12The future of our business.
00:08:15That's how you become great, man.
00:08:19Hang your balls out there.
00:08:21Thanks.
00:08:24Everybody got a copy.
00:08:27There are dangerous animals in the world. Some walk on two feet.
00:08:30They don't want peace. They're not capable of love.
00:08:32Society... and that means you and you... need protection from these warped minds.
00:08:37♪♪(TV)
00:08:52Boom.
00:08:56Hi, this is Jerry Maguire. Did those manuscripts get...
00:09:00MAN: They've all gone out. Oh, they did?
00:09:02Would you like me... oh, no, no. That's fine.
00:09:05Thank you.
00:09:09(PHONES RINGING) I could connect you, if you'd like.
00:09:14(ELEVATOR BELL DINGS)
00:09:18(PEOPLE CHATTERING, PHONE RINGING)
00:09:22MAN: Front desk. How may I help you?
00:09:34All right! Hey, finally somebody sane.
00:09:40MAN: Good work, Maguire! MAN: Yeah, yeah!
00:09:43Yeah! (CHEERING)
00:09:47MAN: Unbelievable. Unbelievable.
00:09:51(CHEERING CONTINUES)
00:09:54Oh, yeah.
00:09:58(SIGHS) JERRY: I was 35.
00:10:02I'd started my life.
00:10:05How long do you give him?
00:10:07'Bout a week.
00:10:12(CHUCKLES)
00:10:14(CHEERING CONTINUES, WHOOPING) (SIGHS)
00:10:19You're with the sports people on the plane? Yeah, I'm Jerry Maguire.
00:10:22S.M.I. Bobbi Fallon, B.P.I.
00:10:25I'm producing the coke commercials for the play-offs.
00:10:27Good luck with that. (CHUCKLES)
00:10:29(BABY CRYING) Oh, hi. Hi.
00:10:32My son is really allergic to the material in the blankets,
00:10:35And I was wondering... that's all we have, okay?
00:10:37(COUGHING) (GASPS)
00:10:39(COUGHING CONTINUES) (BOTH) Ohh!
00:10:42I'm sorry if I was rude just then.
00:10:45That's okay. We're in it together now.
00:10:48Why is it so easy to talk with you? Tell me about your fiancee.
00:10:52More champagne? I don't think we're at your pitch yet.
00:10:55Tell me how you proposed. Honey, are you all right?
00:10:57You want some juice or something?
00:10:58(BABY CONTINUES CRYING)
00:11:00Thank you. But we're hiking up through the pools.
00:11:05I got the ring in my pocket, and... (LAUGHS) I'm a little nervous.
00:11:10I'm lagging, you know, and she says to me... get this...
00:11:14"Hurry up, klutz."
00:11:16It bothered me somewhat, you know?
00:11:19I got quiet and she got quiet.
00:11:21And I decide, I'm not gonna propose.
00:11:25The mood is not right. Why be impulsive?
00:11:28Now, at this point I know she knows...
00:11:30That I was gonna propose and didn't, and she knows I know.
00:11:33So we check back into the pro bowl hotel. How sad.
00:11:36No. But wait. Little do I know...
00:11:39That my assistant has assumed that I've now proposed.
00:11:43So she's gotten a lounge band to actually play "Here Comes the Bride"...
00:11:46When we walk back in. I love that song.
00:11:48All the football guys are in the lobby, watching.
00:11:51There's even an ESPN crew.
00:11:54So I turned to her, sort of grandly say,
00:11:57"Well, this is me, klutz,
00:12:00Asking you, Goddess of rock climbing, to marry me."
00:12:04I took out the ring.
00:12:06You know, I don't much like big scenes,
00:12:08But, uh,
00:12:11She said "yes" right there in the lobby.
00:12:14Some of the toughest men in football wept like babies.
00:12:17We're gettin' married in February.
00:12:19WOMAN: Oh, Jerry, you two are gonna be married forever.
00:12:25(BABY CRYING CONTINUES)
00:12:29What's wrong, mom?
00:12:32First class is what's wrong, honey.
00:12:35It used to be a better meal. Now it's a better life.
00:12:44P.A. ANNOUNCER: Mr. Waters, Mr. Charles Waters, Ray!
00:12:48Your party is waiting for you at the information gate... Ray!

00:12:54Oh, God. Ray! Excuse me.
00:12:57Can I help you?
00:12:59Jerry Maguire.
00:13:01I work in your office. I was on the junket.
00:13:05I know who you are. Dorothy Boyd in accounts.
00:13:08You have the side-middle cubicle with the poster of Albert Einstein's face...
00:13:12Morphed on shaquille O'neal's body.
00:13:14That's pretty good.
00:13:17Wh-what did you lose here?
00:13:19My son, my mind. (MOANS) Ray!
00:13:25Ray!
00:13:27- Listen, while I look... Dorothy? - Huh?
00:13:29While I go look for him, why don't you grab this curious gentleman here?
00:13:33- Hee hee! - Oh. Oh, thank God.
00:13:37Oh. Ohh!
00:13:41You scared me. You scared me.
00:13:44Don't do that again, ever! Okay, mommy.
00:13:47Ever, ever, ever! Okay? Ever!
00:13:51Dorothy? Take care.
00:13:53Thank you so much.
00:13:56I loved your memo,
00:13:59By the way.
00:14:03- You did? - Yeah.
00:14:09Thanks.
00:14:10Uh, actually it was just a mission... Statement.
00:14:14I think, in this age, optimism like that is a revolutionary act.
00:14:17- You think so? - Oh, yeah.
00:14:19I appreciate that because I didn't know if I should write it.
00:14:22I mean, it was 2:00 in the morning.
00:14:26I don't know. Some of the stuff, I just... whoo!
00:14:29No. That part about how we should embrace what is still virginal in our enthusiasm...
00:14:34Uh... not right now, honey.
00:14:36And force open the tightly clenched fist of commerce and give a little back...
00:14:40- for the greater good? - Uh-huh.
00:14:42God, I was inspired, and I'm an accountant, you know?
00:14:47One, two, three, swing! I mean, to respect yourself enough
00:14:49to say it out loud?
00:14:52To put yourself out there like that, so openly, so nakedly?
00:14:57I don't know. It got me. Swing! Whoo!
00:15:02Swing! Is this bothering you?
00:15:06- Whoo! - No, this is, uh, great.
00:15:09Whoo! Th-this is great.
00:15:12One, two, three, swing!
00:15:14Do you need a ride? Are you okay? What?
00:15:17- Do you need a lift? - Oh, no.
00:15:20Oh. (LAUGHING) Yeah, I'm sure that would just make your day.
00:15:24To drive us all the way out to Manhattan beach,
00:15:26making that left on tiny Waterloo street,
00:15:28Playing chicken with traffic, your life flashing before your eyes.
00:15:32I've obviously had too much coffee, huh? (LAUGHING)
00:15:36It's no problem. Uh, um, oh,
00:15:38There's my sister Laurel to pick us up.
00:15:42Thanks. Sure.
00:15:45Ray,
00:15:47Dorothy,
00:15:49A pleasure.
00:15:52Bye.
00:15:54P.A. ANNOUNCER: Rachel Adams, please pick up the white courtesy phone.
00:16:01Hey, Ray. Hey, you. Hi, Aunt Laurel. I'm double parked. Let's go.

00:16:17(PANTING)
00:16:19Don't... Ever... Stop... Fucking me!
00:16:24(MOANING) Sooner or later, I will have to stop.
00:16:28Oh! Never been better! (GRUNTS)
00:16:31Never better!
00:16:33Never better! (SCREAMS)
00:16:35Ohh! Oh. (SIGHS)
00:16:38Open your eyes.
00:16:40If you ever want me to be with another woman for you,
00:16:44I would do it.
00:16:46I'm not interested in it. There was a time, yes, it felt normal for me.
00:16:50But it was a phase, a college thing,
00:16:54Like torn Levi's or law school for you.
00:16:57Want anything from the kitchen? I'm gonna get some fruit.
00:17:00(SIGHS)
00:17:06I don't think we need to do the thing where we tell each other everything.
00:17:11Jerry, this is what intimacy is.
00:17:14Oh, don't forget... tomorrow we have dinner with Wade Cooksey.
00:17:17I know about the bachelor party.
00:17:20Your buddy dooler worked his ass off to make you a tribute film.
00:17:23All those guys from the office are coming. Everybody loves you.
00:17:26Just calm down, relax, act surprised...
00:17:30And have an amazing time.
00:17:32Ohh, no! (ALL SHOUTING)
00:17:35Oh! Oh!
00:17:38(ALL LAUGHING) Oh, my God. All right.
00:17:41You! You! Sorry.
00:17:43Congratulations, Jerry!
00:17:45- Jerry! - Got you, man!
00:17:51Ethan Valhere. Hey.
00:17:54- Old college buddy, congratulations. - Thank you.

00:18:33When I think about Jerry, my heart starts pounding.
00:18:35Oh. I know Jerry pretty well.
00:18:38(PEOPLE LAUGHING) Hi, Jerry. Remember me?
00:18:40We're still on for lunch tomorrow? Yeah.
00:18:42He was no slouch in bed. This is the
00:18:44funniest thing I've ever seen in my life.
00:18:46- You guys are crazy. I'll see you later. - It's probably a good idea...
00:18:50That Jerry get married; He won't be alone.
00:18:52He cannot be alone. He-he can't be alone.
00:18:55He's almost phobic. Jerry is great at friendship.
00:18:59He's just really bad at intimacy.
00:19:01(WOMEN'S VOICES) he can't be alone. He can't be alone.
00:19:05- He can't say "I love you." - Are you listening, Jerry?
00:19:07Lies, lies, lies. He's an agent. He lies.
00:19:10- I love you too. - Hey, love you too.
00:19:14Love you too. Love you, Jerry.

00:20:13You've called our house, right?
00:20:15I-I'm sorry to interrupt you guys.
00:20:17Now, I don't know what you do for your four percent,
00:20:20But this man, my husband, has a whole plan, an image.
00:20:23When you put him in a waterbed warehouse commercial, you're making him common,

00:20:34I know about the four jewels of the celebrity endorsement dollar.
00:20:37Wow. I majored in marketing, baby, and so did my husband.

00:42:17The most commanding wide receiver in the game.
00:42:20You are fast, fierce, wildly charismatic.
00:42:24You are the man. You are the man. Are you ready?
00:42:26Let's go. Let's walk.
00:42:28You are the greatest, fiercest.
00:42:31You are the man.
00:42:34Let's do it.
00:42:36Hi. How're you doing? Tom, how's it going?
00:42:38Where's Cush? He's upstairs.
00:42:40It's good you were able to hang onto Cushman.
00:42:42San Diego or Denver?
00:42:43We'll know tomorrow. I want you to meet Rod Tidwell right now.
00:42:46How're you doing? 110 receptions, 1,550 yards last year.
00:42:50How are you? Meet Rod Tidwell.
00:42:52What's up, man?
00:42:54(VOICES OVERLAPPING)
00:42:57Gentlemen, I want you to meet Rod Tidwell. Hey!
00:42:59110 receptions, 1,550 yards last year. That's right.
00:43:03Hi, Jerry. Rod, feeling good?
00:43:06Feeling great, baby.
00:43:08I'm gonna talk about Rod Tidwell, who is the fiercest wide receiver in the NFL.
00:43:13Hey. Nice to meet you.
00:43:24I came all that way just to walk the lobby.
00:43:27Yeah. Might have even worked too.
00:43:30Yeah? Shit, let's do that shit again.
00:43:32(GIGGLES) Hey, hey.
00:43:35They're shooting a Reebok ad down there.
00:43:38Where are my endorsements?
00:43:40I didn't get no love from Chevy. I didn't get no love from Pepsi.
00:43:44I didn't even get no love from that little energizer bunny.
00:43:47I ain't getting no love from Nike. Rod.
00:43:49Obviously, I ain't getting no love from Reebok.
00:43:52Did I ever tell you about my Reebok story? Rod.
00:43:54Gotta get back to Cushman. Oh, you gotta
00:43:56get back to your golden paycheck.
00:43:58Wait just... I'll boil it down for you.
00:44:01Fuck Reebok. All they do is ignore me.
00:44:05Always have. Always have.
00:44:09You know what was great about you down there?
00:44:11For five minutes you unloaded that rather large chip...
00:44:14That resides right there on your shoulder.
00:44:16You let people in. Ohh.
00:44:19You were brilliant.
00:44:22Brilliant? Brilliant.
00:44:24Really? Now, take care. I'll see you tomorrow.
00:44:27You're lovin' me now, aren't you?
00:44:30I'm not about love. I'm about showing you the money!
00:44:33I was just testing you, Jerry!
00:44:35But to hear you say that makes me love you, baby!
00:44:38You know? Jerry, come back!
00:44:41(CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICKING)
00:44:44How was your flight? Good. How was yours?
00:44:47Good. CUSH: What size are you?
00:44:50Twelve and a half. Grab a couple pair of them new shoes by the door.
00:44:53(CHUCKLES)
00:44:55CUSH: ♪ It's okay to eat fish...
00:44:57♪ 'Cause they haven't got no feelings.
00:45:00Cush? Matt? We have a decision to make.
00:45:03♪ Somethin' in the way.
00:45:06San Diego just came in with a last-minute scenario.
00:45:09- It's big. - Well, he's got to go number one.
00:45:13He still goes number one, but San Diego wants
00:45:15to trade up with Denver and they want him bad.
00:45:17What happened to Denver?
00:45:19This stuff tends to happen the night before a draft. People get crazy.
00:45:23San Diego, Matt... (PHONE RINGS)
00:45:25San Diego is crazy to the tune of 7 years for 30, signing bonus of 8.
00:45:29Should I unplug the phone? Reporters. They been callin' all night long.
00:45:33Be friendly and say, "no comment." we'll tell the world in 12 hours.
00:45:37Talkin' and saying nothing, man, it is an art I have not mastered.
00:45:41Well, then let me do it. (RINGING CONTINUES)
00:45:44If it's for you, it's a pleasure.
00:45:47(LOW VOICE) This is Cush. Hey.
00:45:50It's Sugar. Is Maguire there? Just sniff if he's there.
00:45:53- (SNIFFS) - Okay. All right, buddy, just remember.
00:45:57You're swimmin' with the big boys now. Let your dad do the talking.
00:46:00I'm the one that got you the deal you needed.
00:46:03This is business, not friendship. You gotta be strong.
00:46:06You're global now, worldwide.
00:46:09Okay, buddy? I'll see you later. Bye.
00:46:17(CHUCKLES) No comment.
00:46:22(HANGS UP RECIEVER)
00:46:24(CHUCKLES) He's got it all wrong.
00:46:27Hey, it's Cush on the big TV again. I'm sick of me already.
00:46:30I got "Cushlash." ♪♪ Cushlash.
00:46:34♪ Cushlash, cushlash cushlash, cushlash ♪♪
00:46:38(LAUGHS)
00:46:43Now, Matt, before I go back to Denver,
00:46:46We should put something down on paper.
00:46:49Something that says, "Hey, I'm with Jerry Maguire." Not right now.
00:46:59Do I know everything there is to know here, Matt?
00:47:05(CHUCKLES) You fellas aren't talking with Bob... Bob Sugar, are you?
00:47:10Apparently, Denver wanted to deal with him instead of you.
00:47:15Said who? Sugar?
00:47:18(CHUCKLING) I'm learning as I go here.
00:47:22So you empowered Bob Sugar to deal with Denver behind my back?
00:47:27I'm sorry. I, uh...
00:47:30I love my son. I love your son. I love your son!
00:47:34I brought Denver to 20 million. Denver deals with me all the time!
00:47:38You listened to Sugar!
00:47:40Bob Sugar, Matt, is a child.
00:47:43You let that snake in the door?
00:47:48Okay, hey, Matt. This is a rookie mistake.
00:47:52You want Denver. I'll fix this whole thing up for you.
00:47:55You didn't sign anything with Sugar, right?
00:48:00Matt...
00:48:03Tell me you didn't sign.
00:48:05Tell me you didn't sign,
00:48:08'Cause I'm still sort of moved by your "my word is stronger than oak" thing.
00:48:14We signed an hour ago.
00:48:18You were in the lobby with the black fella.
00:48:25CUSH: I'm sorry, Jerry. I just wanna play football.
00:48:32What do I do? How do I spin this?
00:48:34Oh, honey, it's spun.
00:48:37What did I do to you?
00:48:40It's all about you, isn't it? Soothe me. Save me. Love me.
00:48:44Could you stop moving? I have to finish my job.
00:48:47Everything is on the fucking run with us. Everything!
00:48:49Jerry, you and I are salespeople. We sell.
00:48:53It's not "Love me." It's not "Trust my handshake."
00:48:56It's "Make the sale," "Get it signed."
00:48:58There shouldn't be confusion about that.
00:49:00Just jump right into my nightmare. The water is warm.
00:49:03So honesty is outlawed here? I can't be honest?
00:49:06I would prefer loyalty. What was our...
00:49:09...deal when we first got together?
00:49:11Brutal truth, remember?
00:49:13I think you added the "Brutal."
00:49:16Jerry, there is a sensitivity thing that some people have.
00:49:21I don't have it. I don't cry at movies.
00:49:24I don't gush over babies. I don't start
00:49:26celebrating christmas five months early!
00:49:28I don't tell a man who just screwed up both our lives, "Oh, poor baby."
00:49:31That's me, for better or worse.
00:49:35But I do love you.
00:49:41- Avery. - No.
00:49:43It's over. Didn't hear it.
00:49:45There's something missing here, don't you think?
00:49:48- You have never been alone. - Listen to me.
00:49:50- You can't be alone. - It's over.
00:49:57No one has ever dumped me.
00:50:01I'm not trying to make history here.
00:50:04I did the 23-hour nose route to the top of El Capitan...
00:50:08in 18 hours and 23 minutes.
00:50:10I can make this work.
00:50:15No.
00:50:18Oh, Jerry.
00:50:21Hey, hey, hey, hey.
00:50:29I didn't ever want to hurt you.
00:50:36Oh! Ohh! Ohh!
00:50:41I won't let you hurt me, Jerry.
00:50:43I'm too strong for you. Loser!
00:50:48Oh, fuck.
00:50:52Roll with the punches. Tomorrow's another day.
00:50:55Taxi!
00:50:59You lovin' me now, aren't you?
00:51:02Very much. Taxi!
00:51:05Is it my imagination, or didn't we arrive in a limo?
00:51:09The question I have to say is this, and I hope this doesn't come off...
00:51:12Like I'm a shrink. (SOBS)
00:51:14What's wrong?
00:51:16Man, I'm just a big disappointment.
00:51:19- Look at this. Jerry. - Can't change it.
00:51:22Everybody cries on this show. Can't change it.
00:51:25You mad you tested positive? Quit doin' blow!
00:51:28Upset about your baby girl?
00:51:31Why'd you leave the mother? I knew her. She was all right.
00:51:34People, like the media, don't understand...
00:51:36What kind of problems and pressures 54 million come with.
00:51:40This is some bullshit. What are you doin' with me, Rod?
00:51:42(TV) But I'm still poor in life.
00:51:44What? JERRY: Don't you even see?
00:51:46(TV) I don't have nothing! I'm finished.
00:51:50I am fucked.
00:51:52Twenty-four hours ago, man, I was hot.
00:51:56Now... I'm a cautionary tale.
00:52:00See this jacket I'm wearing? You like it?
00:52:03'Cause I don't need it, because I'm cloaked in failure!
00:52:06I lost the number-one draft pick the night before the draft!
00:52:10Why? Let's recap.
00:52:12Because a hockey player's kid made me feel like a superficial jerk.
00:52:17I had two slices of bad pizza, went to bed and grew a conscience!
00:52:21Well, boo-fucking-hoo.
00:52:27(GROANS)
00:52:28I got a shelf life of ten years, tops.
00:52:32My next contract gotta bring me dollars
00:52:34that'll last me and mine a very long time.
00:52:36I'm out of this sport in five years.
00:52:39What's my family gonna live on? Huh? (SLURPS)
00:52:43What you get me. So I don't want to hear your shit, Jerry.
00:52:47I don't wanna hear your "nah, nah, nah!"
00:52:50I lost Cush, Avery and shit."
00:52:52I'll have another drink, please.
00:52:55Anybody else would've left you by now.
00:52:58I'm sticking with you. I said I would.
00:53:01If I got to ride your ass like zorro, you're gonna show me the money.
00:53:06You gonna show me the money.
00:53:09♪♪(HEADPHONES: JAZZ) We together on this. Know what I'm saying?
00:53:14We gonna be one. Uhh!
00:53:17The both of us! You know?
00:53:21Oh, my God.
00:53:27(ANSWERING MACHINE) You have no messages. (BEEPS)
00:53:46(PHONE BEEPING, RINGING)
00:53:55He's coming over.
00:53:57- Tonight? - He just lost his best client.
00:53:59I invited the guy over.
00:54:01Dorothy, this is not a guy, it's a syndrome:
00:54:04Early-midlife-hangin'... on-to-the-bottom-rung...
00:54:07Dear-God-don't-- let-me-be-alone...
00:54:09I'll-call-my-newly-- long-suffering-assis-
00:54:10tant-without-medical- -for-company-syndrome.
00:54:12If, knowing all that, you still want him
00:54:14to come over... Honey, he's engaged.
00:54:16And for the first time in my professional
00:54:18life I'm part of something I believe in.
00:54:21Okay. But he'd better not be good-looking!
00:54:24(DOORBELL RINGS)
00:54:27Hi.
00:54:30I'm Jerry Maguire.
00:54:32Oh. (CHUCKLES) Hello.
00:54:35You are... Just the way I pictured you.
00:54:38I'm her disapproving sister Laurel.
00:54:40Honesty.
00:54:42(GROANS) Mmm. Thank you.
00:54:46Thank you. (CHUCKLES)
00:54:48Dorothy!
00:54:52Dorothy! Your... Boss is here.
00:54:56Hello.
00:55:00Oh, careful.
00:55:02Hey, you.
00:55:04- Hi. Thanks for inviting me over. - Sure.
00:55:07Where's, uh...
00:55:09Where's the little guy?
00:55:11He's sleeping. Oh, yeah. Sleeping.
00:55:14I'm so glad you're home.
00:55:16You know, I just... that, uh, alone thing is not my, uh, specialty.
00:55:21- Oh, my God. - Oh, yeah. Oh, my God, uh...
00:55:26Well, I broke up with Avery.
00:55:29(CHUCKLING)
00:55:32It's just, uh...
00:55:35That... gosh, you know, that's too bad.
00:55:38No, it's... it's better,
00:55:40Because we're still gonna be friends, and...
00:55:42You know, it's better now than later. Sure. Sure.
00:55:45You know, I mean, I'm...
00:55:48I'm dyin' here, aren't I? Yeah, it's a really bad cut.
00:55:52Well, just think if I'd got her the ring she really wanted.
00:55:56(LAUGHING)
00:56:00- Yeah. - Why don't you have a seat.
00:56:03Yeah. I'll, uh...
00:56:06I'll get some Aloe Vera for that cut. (TOY SQUEAKS)
00:56:11- Do you have something to drink? - Sure.
00:56:19- I heard. - No kidding.
00:56:22I looked over and saw the shadow of two
00:56:24curious shoes in the doorway of the kitchen.
00:56:26This guy would go home with a gardening
00:56:28tool right now, if it showed interest.
00:56:30Don't use those. Use the frosted glasses.
00:56:33Thank you. You're welcome.
00:56:35I warmed up some of that chicken with salsa for you.
00:56:37Ohh, that's the girl I love.
00:56:39I'm not gonna say anything, just this:
00:56:41You have always been very responsible with Ray.
00:56:43I don't think it's right for him to wake up and
00:56:45hear some strange man's voice in the house.
00:56:47Some drunken stranger.
00:56:49Oh, as opposed to ten angry women?
00:56:51Whoa! Oww!
00:56:54Lean forward. Okay, I've got it.
00:56:57Ohh. Still edible. Change your shirt.
00:56:59Everything's fine.
00:57:07Hi, Jerry.
00:57:10Hi, Ray.
00:57:12Aren't, uh, you supposed to be in bed?
00:57:15Yeah. Yeah.
00:57:17(WHISPERS) All right.
00:57:20I won't tell.
00:57:22The human head weighs eight pounds.
00:57:30(RINGING)
00:57:36(PHONE BEEPS) Jerry Maguire.
00:57:38(RINGING CONTINUES) I think it's this one.
00:57:42ROD: You should be dreamin' about me, baby.
00:57:44My agent should be thinking Rod Tidwell.
00:57:47That's when the big dollars are gonna flow.
00:57:50That's when we truly will materialize the "kwan." Who is this?
00:57:53Who is this? You are speaking to the Rod Tidwell.
00:57:56I need to speak with my agent. I need to be my agent.
00:57:59My agent and I should be one. Are you a football player?
00:58:02Am I a football player? I'm a school teacher about to whomp your ass!
00:58:07Put Jerry Maguire on the phone!
00:58:09One more thing: You don't have the luxury of
00:58:11falling for some drowning man. Be practical.
00:58:13"Practical"? High Turtleneck sensible or Low V-Neck sexy?
00:58:17Turtleneck, Turtleneck. Come on. Don't tell me to be practical.
00:58:20Do you know what other women my age are doing right now?
00:58:23They're out partying, trying to get a man, trying to keep a man.
00:58:27Not me, Laurel.
00:58:29I'm trying to raise a man. This one.
00:58:32I've got a 24-hour-a-day reminder of Roger for the rest of my life.
00:58:37I've had three lovers in four years.
00:58:41That's not bad. And all of them ran a distant second...
00:58:43To a good book and a warm bath.
00:58:46Look at me, Laurel.
00:58:48I'm the oldest 26-year-old in the world.
00:58:51- Now, how do I look? - Good.
00:58:53Yeah? Thanks.
00:58:55ROD: Seventy-two percent of new buyers are african-american!
00:58:58I am african-american. Make the connection. You talk too much.
00:59:01No, no, no! Talking is only a primitive form of communication!
00:59:04Fun talking to you. Bye, Rod. J-Jerry!
00:59:08LAUREL: Make a sandwich. DOROTHY: Good idea.
00:59:10Ham sandwich? I just wanna say one thing:
00:59:13You do listen to me. Well, I love you.
00:59:15Mayo? Yeah.
00:59:17JERRY: Oppression... As a religion.
00:59:20My daddy worked for the united way for 38 years.
00:59:23You know what he said when he retired?
00:59:25"I wish they'd given me a more comfortable chair."
00:59:2838 years he sat in that... wait, wait, wait. And then my dad died.
00:59:31My mom took me to the zoo, and I love the zoo...
00:59:35No, wait, wait, 'cause I wanna tell you more about my dad.
00:59:39No, let's go to the zoo.
00:59:42(SIGHS) Okay. Okay.
00:59:45No, you're right.
00:59:47I don't know, it's just my whole life I've been trying to talk, I mean...
00:59:52Really talk.
00:59:54But no one wants to listen to me. You know that feeling?
00:59:58They just look at you... let's go right now. Let's go to the zoo.
01:00:03Ray, the zoo, you know...
01:00:04The fuckin' zoo's closed, Ray, I mean...
01:00:10(WHISPERS) You said "fuck."
01:00:13Yeah, I did. I, uh... is that...
01:00:17I won't tell.
01:00:20Well...
01:00:24Now I'm gonna have to take you to the zoo.
01:00:27(PLATES CLATTERING, LAUREL, DOROTHY CHATTERING) I gotta go to bed.
01:00:30My mom's coming. I gotta go to bed. W-wait...
01:00:33(CHATTERING CONTINUES) I hear my mom. I gotta go to bed.
01:00:37Hey, thanks for listening. Sure.
01:00:41Whew. Okay.
01:00:43Drinks, food, and I called you a cab.
01:00:48Good idea.
01:00:50And we should keep our voices down. I have a little boy asleep.
01:00:55Right.
01:00:57Our company.
01:00:58Yeah.
01:01:00Okay. Okay.
01:01:02Look, uh, a little, uh,
01:01:05A little speech before I go.
01:01:12Do... Not... Worry... About your future.
01:01:18You and your son...
01:01:20We... are just fine.
01:01:22You still have a job.
01:01:25But let me tell you something...
01:01:28About Jerry Maguire, okay?
01:01:31You come after me, and you... will... Lose.
01:01:35You know, because I am a survivor.
01:01:39I'm a survivor.
01:01:41Dorothy Boyd, you are with the lord...
01:01:45of the living room,
01:01:47The, the king of the kingdome,
01:01:50And I... Am...
01:01:56Drunk.
01:02:06We meet again.
01:02:08(GURGLING)
01:02:15(SIGHS)
01:02:23Here.
01:02:33The truth?
01:02:36Sure.
01:02:38I care about the job,
01:02:40Of course,
01:02:43But mostly I just wanna be inspired.
01:02:47Me too.
01:02:49What you wrote inspired me.
01:02:52Ohh... no, no, no. No, hey.
01:02:54I'm working with you because of that memo.
01:03:00I loved that memo.
01:03:06It was a mission statement.
01:03:18(CAR HORN HONKING)
01:03:21Well... (SNICKERS)
01:03:23Sorry about the hand.
01:03:26Huh?

01:03:33You're not... (GRUNTS)
01:03:36Completely embarrassed yet,
01:03:39But you glimpse tomorrow's embarrassment?
01:03:41Don't worry about it, boss.
01:03:44Oh, shit. You said "boss."
01:03:47Yeah, I did. Now I feel like Clarence Thomas.
01:03:50No, don't feel like Clarence Thomas.
01:03:53No, no, I do. I feel like Clarence Thomas.
01:03:56I'm, like, harassing you right now.
01:03:58Well, I may not sue. (LAUGHS)
01:04:12- Good evening. - Good evening.
01:04:18Look, don't worry, okay? I mean, don't...
01:04:23We're gonna be okay, because I am gonna take my one client...
01:04:29And we are gonna go... All the way.

01:05:01(MEN CHATTERING) MAN: All right! Good job! Good job!
01:05:07We gotta talk about his contract, Dennis.
01:05:09Meet me at the Crocodile, 8:00.
01:05:12You bet.
01:05:19(WHISTLE BLOWS)
01:05:34Thank you.
01:05:36JERRY: Tell me you got lost last night, because
01:05:38I know you wouldn't do that to a friend.
01:05:40Something came up. Yeah, well, it's okay.
01:05:43Ten million dollars for four years.
01:05:45It's early. You're still dreamin'. Ten for four, it's a deal.
01:05:48Look, the guy's got an attitude problem.
01:05:52- I can help you with that. He listens to me. - He's a shrimp.
01:05:56"Shrimp"? Rod Tidwell broke every receiving record you had last year.
01:05:59I want a prototypical wide receiver, Jerry... somebody who's 6'3, 220,
01:06:03Not some guy who's 5'10 and bitches in the locker room.
01:06:07Dennis, I'm asking you...
01:06:11For a favor.
01:06:13I introduced you to your wife.
01:06:15We've spent Christmases together, holiday cheer.
01:06:20(CHUCKLES) Dennis... Jerry, you're reachin'.
01:06:22I-I'm asking you for a favor!
01:06:25Don't do this to me. We have history, Dennis.
01:06:28Oh, yeah, we got history, all right, Jerry.
01:06:31You drove the prices up on me for years.
01:06:34It's your turn to spend some time at the back of the line.
01:06:37No, no, no, dennis, don't...
01:06:41(SIGHS)
01:06:43I started talking with Dennis Wilburn about your renegotiation this morning.
01:06:47(SHOWER RUNNING)
01:06:51Talking?
01:06:53Jerry Rice. Andre Reed.
01:06:56Chris Carter. I smoke all these fools!
01:07:00Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yet they are makin' the big, sweet dollar.
01:07:03They are makin' the kwan.
01:07:06And you're talking.
01:07:11"Kwan." that's your word?
01:07:13Hell, yeah, that's my word.
01:07:15You know, some dudes might have the coin, but they'll never have the kwan.
01:07:19Wh-what is... it means love,respect, community and the dollars too.
01:07:25The entire package. The... Kwan.
01:07:30Great word.
01:07:33- Towel? - No, I air dry.
01:07:37Uh, listen, Rod.
01:07:39I-I say this with great respect for you,
01:07:44But those players you mentioned, Rod,
01:07:47They're marquee players, and this deal, we're...
01:07:52Y-you know, we... m-m-marquee?
01:07:54Here's what I'm saying. This is a renegotiation.
01:07:57We want more, so let's give them more. Let's show them your pure joy of the game.
01:08:02Let's bury the attitude a little bit and show them...Wait.
01:08:07- You're tellin' me to dance. - No.
01:08:10I'm saying to get back to the guy who first started playing this game.
01:08:15Remember way back when, when you were a kid?
01:08:18It wasn't just about the money, was it?
01:08:21Was it?
01:08:24Was it?
01:08:26Do your job.
01:08:28Don't you tell me to dance! Fine.
01:08:31Hey. Hey! Fine!
01:08:33I am an athlete! I am not an entertainer!
01:08:37- Fine! - These are the ABC's of me, baby!
01:08:40I do not dance, and I do not start preseason without a contract.
01:08:43Fine, fine! Fine!
01:08:46Jerry, talk to me. Breathe.
01:08:50Breathe, Jerry.
01:08:53I am out here for you.
01:08:56You don't know what it's like to be me out here for you.
01:09:00It is an up-at-dawn, pride-swallowing siege...
01:09:04That I will never fully tell you about. Okay?
01:09:10Just, God, help me.
01:09:13Help me, Rod. Help me help you.
01:09:18Help me help you.
01:09:22Help me help you.
01:09:32I'm sorry.
01:09:35You are hangin' on by a very thin thread.
01:09:38(CONTINUES LAUGHING)
01:09:40And I dig that about you!
01:09:43(GIGGLING) No contract?
01:09:45"Help me, help me, help me!"
01:09:49That's my... that's my man!
01:09:51Hey, I'm happy to entertain you.
01:09:54"Help me! Help me!"
01:09:56(LAUGHS) I'll see you in Los Angeles.
01:09:59Jerry! Come on, man!
01:10:02Hey! See, that's the difference between us.
01:10:05You think we're fightin', and I think we're finally talkin'!
01:10:14Unless you love everybody, you can't sell anybody.
01:10:28Dennis Wilburn called from Arizona...
01:10:30To say he's faxing in the new offer for Tidwell on thursday morning.
01:10:33He said you'd be happy. Glad.
01:10:35Well, did he say "happy" or "glad"?
01:10:38Glad. He said glad. Glad.
01:10:41Glad's good. Yeah.
01:10:44Glad's good. Yeah, we could sure use that commission.
01:10:47Here, I did a rundown on where you stand financially.
01:10:54Well, I sunk most of what I had into this condo, you don't have to explain.
01:10:58Which devalued and...
01:11:00Look, the other night, uh... I want to apologize.
01:11:04Yeah. What happened there?
01:11:06We're two people working together. We can't have atmosphere.
01:11:10No, I'm really relieved you said that.
01:11:13The other night I was lonely...
01:11:16And I felt you understood something.
01:11:19But look, we've got a company to think about here. Yes.
01:11:22I will never take advantage of you in that way again.
01:11:26Good. You walked out on a job for me, and this is how I repay you?
01:11:30Can this be right?
01:11:31Exactly.
01:11:33I know this is one of those times when you
01:11:36need to be alone with your thoughts...
01:11:39And think about everything that's gone wrong and how to fix it and, you know,
01:11:43Just be alone.
01:11:45Alone. Alone, alone, alone.
01:11:49Alone.
01:11:53- You wanna go out to dinner? - I know a great place.
01:11:57The guy's an utter loser so I broke up
01:11:59with him, and then he started stalking me.
01:12:02What's the current definition of stalking?
01:12:04WOMAN: Coming over uninvited. (WOMEN LAUGHING)
01:12:06"Coming over uninvited." So, like, Romeo under the balcony is a stalker?
01:12:11Exactly. Oh, stop.
01:12:12What? (WOMEN EXCLAIMING, CHATTERING)
01:12:14I love guys like that. I would date somebody that way.
01:12:17I would too. I would date anybody, for that matter.
01:12:21He's always just coming over uninvited... excuse me.

01:15:14Wasn't that just thrilling? He must really have been needing that.

01:15:21Cry at the end, like I do.
01:15:22You all right? All right. Okay. Okay.

01:29:10Except "Have a look at a guy who isn't yelling 'show me the money'?"
01:29:14You know he's broke?
01:29:15He is broke and working for you for free.
01:29:19Broke. Broke, broke, broke.
01:29:25I'm sorry. I'm just not as good at the insults as she is.
01:29:27- No, that was pretty good. - No shit.
01:29:32Let me show you something.
01:29:38Here.
01:29:40Rod, read this. Whoa, no, no, no, no.
01:29:43Jerry, I just think that...
01:29:45(WHISPERING) Jerry, I think it's important...
01:29:48That came from your heart and you shouldn't deny it. I appreciate it.
01:29:51You should be proud of that, and I
01:29:52think they should read it. ROD: Jerry.
01:29:54Tell me what to do.
01:29:57You tell me to eat lima beans, I'll eat lima beans.
01:30:00You tell me this is the best we can get, this is all we can get...
01:30:04"All we can get"? Marcee, please, I'm talking with my agent.
01:30:07No, no, no, no, listen. This is what you're gonna do.
01:30:11You're gonna reject that shitty contract,
01:30:14You're gonna play out your existing shitty contract and be a free agent next year.
01:30:18Come on. Hey. Hey. Baby, this is us.
01:30:22You and me. We determine our worth.
01:30:26Baby, you are a strong, proud, surviving, splendid black man.
01:30:34Marcee...
01:30:37You are the shit.
01:30:42Oh, baby. (GIGGLES)
01:30:46If you get injured, you get zero.
01:30:49- Won't happen. I'm strong in mind. - That's right.
01:30:52Rod...
01:30:54It's a risk.
01:30:56You bet on me like I bet on you.
01:31:01Huh?
01:31:06You know?
01:31:08(LAUGHING) My man! You know?
01:31:11MARCEE: You know? Okay.
01:31:13You know, baby?
01:31:16Oh, you so crazy. I love you, baby.
01:31:21MARCEE: Lemme kiss that head.
01:31:23Mmm. (MUTTERING)
01:31:25(MUTTERING CONTINUES) Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. (KISSING SOUNDS)
01:31:33I'm gonna take that job in San Diego.
01:31:35Don't even talk about that yet. You can't afford me.
01:31:38I'll find something... no, you can't afford me, Jerry.
01:31:41I'll find something fast for Tidwell.
01:31:44I refuse to be a drain. We'll stay afloat.
01:31:48We'll stay afloat.
01:31:51Don't leave.
01:31:52Rod, get on the camel! Shoot me from the bottom, make me look more powerful!
01:31:57He's my client. Just... I-I know... then get him on the camel!
01:32:00I'm gonna get him on the camel. You don't need a camel. You got Rod Tidwell.
01:32:02It's Kammell Chevrolet. Kammell Chevrolet. (CAMEL GROANS)
01:32:05That's how I feel. Hear him? He's feelin' my pain! (CAMEL CONTINUES GROANING)
01:32:09Get on the camel! Enough. Enough. I'm pulling him from this.
01:32:12Pulling him? I'm just saying, get rid of the camel and we can get busy with this.
01:32:15An athlete of your stature, this isn't what I had in mind. You're pulling him?
01:32:19You're right. Let's bounce.
01:32:21Pulling him? Then you shouldn't have begged me to hire him!
01:32:25(CAMEL GURGLING)
01:32:27ROD: I know you needed that commission,
01:32:29But we ain't gonna bring Reebok to their knees with no regional kammell ad.
01:32:32Comin' through! Excuse me, darlin'.
01:32:34Can I ask you a question that's totally unrelated to your career?
01:32:38Oh, what, we gonna be friends now?
01:32:40What do you know about dating a single mother? Plenty.
01:32:43I was raised by a single mother.
01:32:45Well, tell me, because I think, after this,
01:32:48She's gonna have to take that job in San Diego.
01:32:51First of all, single mothers don't date. They've, uh...
01:32:54Watch it. Watch this thing.
01:32:56They don't date. They've been to the circus. Know what I mean?
01:33:00They've been to the puppet show and they've seen the strings.
01:33:04Do you love her? How do I know?
01:33:07What do you mean? You know when you know.
01:33:10I don't want her to go. I been hanging out at her place a lot.
01:33:13Oh, wait, wait, no, wait. That right there, that's bullshit.
01:33:17You gotta be fair to her.
01:33:19A single mother, man, that's a sacred thing. You gotta have "the talk."
01:33:25She loves you.
01:33:27If you don't love her, you've got to tell her.
01:33:32The kid's amazing.
01:33:35He... no. No. (CHUCKLES)
01:33:39I feel you. I feel you, dog.
01:33:42But a real man would not shoplift the pootie from a single mother.
01:33:47I didn't shoplift the pootie.
01:33:56All right.
01:33:58I shoplifted the pootie.
01:34:09You know, uh,
01:34:11John Coltrane once said to Miles Davis, uh...
01:34:14When you say good-bye to him, don't make a
01:34:16big, dramatic thing out of it. Just be cool.
01:34:18What's meant to be, will be.
01:34:20You'll still see each other. What about me?
01:34:22I'm losing the only person that ever listens
01:34:24to me, and you only listen partially.
01:34:26Quit making me laugh. Come on. What?
01:34:28You're doing the right thing, Dorothy.
01:34:30You need to start your life, and he needs a warm body to cushion the fall.
01:34:33Check out exhibit "a" on the front lawn. Look at that.
01:34:37LAUREL: I'm almost sympathetic to the guy. Good-bye.
01:34:41All right. Good-bye. You know, I mean...
01:34:46Bye.
01:34:53(SNIFFLES)
01:34:55Listen, you're gonna like it in San Diego, Ray.
01:35:00(SNIFFLES) Ray?
01:35:03It's gonna be great there because, uh,
01:35:06You'll make a lot of friends and...
01:35:08I'm gonna see you this weekend, you know.
01:35:11Go ahead and go. (SNIFFLES)
01:35:17(SNIFFLES) Go ahead and go.
01:35:23(KISSES)
01:35:32Are you sure you're okay to drive this? This rig? No problem.
01:35:35I'll see you this weekend. Okay.
01:35:37Get in the car. Get in the car, Dorothy.
01:35:41I'll see you in a couple of days, and, uh... I love you.
01:35:47I love you, too, you know.
01:35:50What? Nothing.
01:35:53I'll see you soon. Okay.
01:35:56Look, um... mm-hmm.
01:35:58If this weekend should turn into next month...
01:36:01And next month should turn into whatever, don't make a joke of your life.
01:36:06Go back and read what you wrote. You're better than the rest of'em.
01:36:10You're better than the Bob Sugars.
01:36:14Don't forget that.
01:36:32Wait. Wait a second.
01:36:35No, no. Oh, God.
01:36:38I know a way we can save on medical and rent.
01:36:42Don't listen to him, Dorothy.
01:36:43What if we stayed together? What if we got married?
01:36:48If I said that, would you stay? No, no. Don't do that.
01:36:52Don't say that unless...
01:36:55Well, say it if you want to.
01:37:03Will you marry me?
01:37:11What are you thinking?

01:42:46I'm worried the only reason I'm getting my brains blown loose...
01:42:49is' cause you weren't asshole enough to get
01:42:51me my ten million three fuckin' months ago.
01:42:53Shit.
01:42:56Take care of yourself on that field, you hear?
01:42:58You're my entire client roster.
01:43:00Don't I know this. Now, go home to your wife.
01:43:04What's that supposed to mean?
01:43:06What are you doing here? You could've told me this shit over the phone.
01:43:10How about dedication for an answer? Personal attention?
01:43:12You don't want to go home, do you? What are you saying?
01:43:16I'm just trying to talk to you. How's your marriage?
01:43:20You know, the husband and wife thing? How is that?
01:43:26Huh?
01:43:31Not everyone has what you have.
01:43:34Then why did you get married?
01:43:37I'm just asking as a friend. You want an answer?
01:43:41Loyalty. She was loyal.
01:43:50I mean, you know, everything...
01:43:52Grew from there.
01:43:54It just... Grew from there.
01:44:00That's an answer.
01:44:03That's the answer. (LAUGHING)
01:44:05It's not sexy. Shit.
01:44:08That's an answer. Tell him what he's won, Bob!
01:44:11A beautiful marriage! (LAUGHING)
01:44:15Shit! Well.
01:44:18I'm happy to entertain you, as always, Rod.
01:44:23Shit.
01:44:25I have a question for you, Rod.
01:44:27Are we really friends? Why not?
01:44:30Because friends can tell each other anything,
01:44:33If we have our "friends hats" on, right? I think so.
01:44:37All right. I'll tell you why you don't have your ten million dollars yet.
01:44:41Right now, you are a paycheck player.
01:44:44You play with your head, not your heart.
01:44:47In your personal life, heart.
01:44:48But when you get on the field, it's all about what you didn't get,
01:44:52Who's to blame, who under-threw the pass,
01:44:55Who's got the contract you don't, who's not giving you your love.
01:44:58You know what? That is not what inspires people.
01:45:02That is not what inspires people.
01:45:05Just shut up. Play the game. Play it from your heart.
01:45:08And you know what? I will show you the kwan.
01:45:11And that's the truth, man. That's the truth.
01:45:14Can you handle it? It's just a question between friends.
01:45:17(IMITATING ROD'S VOICE) You know?
01:45:20And when they call you shrimp, I'm the one who defends you!
01:45:24- I don't want to be friends no more. - Fine.
01:45:28And quit using that word "kwan." that's my word!
01:45:30I'll see you in L.A. No heart.

01:47:49What were you thinking tonight, watching them go through...
01:47:53The entire human emotional experience?
01:47:56I was thinking, "I hope he doesn't get injured."
01:48:01I felt responsible.
01:48:05Sometimes I can't tell at all what's going on in that head of yours.
01:48:10(CHUCKLES)
01:48:13Uhhhh...
01:48:15And I really don't know your noises yet.
01:48:19Well, when you wonder, ask me.

01:49:02Hang in there, okay? He's not going anywhere.
01:49:05I know. Could we talk about something else?
01:49:10I don't think so. I'm incapable of small talk.
01:49:13(CHUCKLES) But that's why you love me, right?
01:49:28I want you to know I'm about personal attention.
01:49:32This is my life. I'm available to you 24 hours a day.
01:49:35I'm in my office. Call me anytime.
01:49:38I'll be in Phoenix tomorrow for monday night football. I can be in Indiana...
01:49:42By 11:30 tuesday morning.
01:49:44Just give me 20 minutes. I'm not asking for an answer now.
01:49:48Why don't you... I'll call you tomorrow.
01:49:51Just enjoy the rest of your day. Tell Douglas I said hello, would you, please?
01:49:54All right. Thank you. Same to you, Marilee. Bye-bye.
01:49:58(BEEPS)
01:50:00Indiana, tuesday.
01:50:02I'll be there. (CHUCKLES)
01:50:08It's my fault.
01:50:11What?
01:50:13It's not fair to you, this whole thing.
01:50:21Here. Tell me.
01:50:25Let me help. I took advantage of you.
01:50:28The worst of it is that I'm not alone. I did this with a kid.
01:50:34I was just... On some wild ride...
01:50:37Where I thought that I was in love... Enough...
01:50:41For both of us.
01:50:45I pretended that proposal by the car was real,
01:50:48And it might've just been a hypothetical.
01:50:53I did this,
01:50:56And at least I can do something about it now.
01:51:00I'm not a guy who runs.
01:51:03I stick.
01:51:07Well, I don't need you to stick.
01:51:09What do you want? I don't know.
01:51:12My soul or something?
01:51:14Why not? I deserve that.
01:51:17What if I'm not built that way?
01:51:20I think we made a mistake.
01:51:23No, no. Listen. What if it's true? It's...
01:51:28Great at friendship, bad at intimacy.
01:51:31I mean, come on, it's the theme... of my bachelor film, for God's sake.
01:51:36I know. I watched it.
01:51:38I sort of... Know it by heart.
01:51:44I don't like to give up.
01:51:46Please, Jerry.
01:51:49My need to make the best of things...
01:51:52And your need to be responsible.
01:51:54If one of us doesn't say something about it now,
01:51:57We could lose ten years being polite.
01:52:03Let's just call this next road trip what it really is:
01:52:09A nice, long break.
01:52:19What about Ray?
01:52:25Well, you'll be friends.
01:52:29Friends? (WHISPERS) Friends.
01:52:35Of course you'll be friends.

01:52:44So this break is a breakup. That's...
01:52:47Come on, Jerry. You know this isn't easy for me.
01:52:53On the surface everything looks fine.
01:52:56I've got this great guy,
01:53:00And he loves my kid,

01:54:58Hey, Rod, buddy, dude. I was wondering where you were. How's it going?
01:55:02Get outta here. Go.
01:55:07Where's your agent? I don't know.
01:55:10I know this is uncool to do this now, but you belong with the big boys.
01:55:15You belong with the big money. You're fuckin' Rod Tidwell. Hey! Hey!
01:55:18Get away from my guy. Hey, Jerry, I was just hailing you.
01:55:21Just go. Flee. (CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKING)
01:55:25This is a nice moment for you.
01:55:27I'm going to let you have it.
01:55:31Give me a call, Rod. Say hi to Marcee for me.
01:55:42Thanks for coming. I missed you.
01:55:47What can I say? You're all I've got. (SPECTATORS CHEERING)
01:55:54Hello again, everyone. Frank Gifford with Al Michaels and Dan Dierdorf.
01:55:57Welcome to Tempe, Arizona's sun devil stadium...
01:55:59Where the story tonight is the Cardinals.
01:56:02They are still alive for a play-off spot.
01:56:05The reason the Cardinals are alive is the outstanding play of Rod Tidwell.
01:56:09(ALL CHEERING) That's my daddy!
01:56:11Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys continue to roll.
01:56:13They know they're in the play-offs...
01:56:15And going in looking for a second consecutive super bowl.
01:56:17Who could've believed this? Here's the deal.
01:56:20If Arizona wins tonight and next week, amazingly the Cardinals...
01:56:24will make the play-offs for the first time in 21 years.
01:56:27Whoo! Better not mess up for monday night football.
01:56:32What'd I say? Everybody knows he gets nervous for nationally televised games.
01:56:37GIFFORD: The Cowboys continue their super bowl mission on monday night football,
01:56:40A Christmas edition.
01:56:42(CROWD CHEERING) (HORN BLOWING)
01:56:48Hey, Shannon. Hi, Jerry. Good game.
01:56:51Yeah. Hey, great column this morning. Thanks.
01:57:00Fuck you, punk! (PLAYERS GRUNTING, GROANING)
01:57:05(WHISTLE BLOWS)
01:57:08Boy, guys, it's a real bruiser out there tonight.
01:57:11MICHAELS: the cardinals just refuse to go quietly into the desert night,
01:57:16As their seemingly interminable season winds down.
01:57:18Come on, guys. I'm trying to be a little poetic here.
01:57:21DIERDORF: Wax on, Al. (GRUNTS)
01:57:24Ouch! Oh, a tough hit on Rod Tidwell.
01:57:27Nothing poetic about that. I would've taken it for the touchdown all the way.
01:57:32MICHAELS: That's his sixth catch of the night.
01:57:34Split to the right. Swenson looks that way, hits him.
01:57:37It's enough for a first down at the 19-yard line.
01:57:39DIERDORF: Another savage hit across the middle on Rod Tidwell.
01:57:43GIFFORD: He took some shot, didn't he?
01:57:46GIFFORD: They are working Tidwell. What does daddy always say?
01:57:49"It looks worse than it really is." That's right.
01:57:53TEE PEE: He ain't gonna have nothing left for next season.
01:57:56Will you be quiet? What'd I say?
01:57:58Less than two minutes to play. Dallas leading by three.
01:58:02Second down and one now at the Dallas 11-yard line.
01:58:06Hut! Swenson back to pass. A blitz! Down he goes.
01:58:10(CROWD BOOING) He's sacked for a six-yard loss.
01:58:13DIERDORF: Good move coming with the blitz, getting after swenson.
01:58:16GIFFORD: Swenson's limping back. He had too many men in that pattern.
01:58:18They did not have enough to pick up the blitz.
01:58:22Listen up. Shut up! (PLAYERS SHOUTING)
01:58:24Ninety Razor, x out, on one. Ready? (TOGETHER) Break!
01:58:28Okay, here we go. Here we go.
01:58:30GIFFORD: He had a chance to get rid of it, but he had to tuck it away.
01:58:33MICHAELS: From second and one, they've now gone to third and seven.
01:58:37In the waning moments of this game, Dallas 17, Arizona 14.
01:58:41- Set! - Come on, card...
01:58:43MICHAELS: Tidwell in motion, moving back to his left now.
01:58:47Play fake. Swenson protected well, lofts one to the end zone.
01:58:52Yeah! MICHAELS: Touchdown Cardinals!
01:58:54GIFFORD: What a great effort! Did you see him go up on that ball?
01:58:56DIERDORF: He held on to the football. He's still down on the ground.
01:59:00But Rod Tidwell, upside-down, hits the ground hard...
01:59:03And manages to maintain control of the football.
01:59:06GIFFORD: He's hurt too. Yeah.
01:59:08DIERDORF: He's not getting up.
01:59:11- Look at the faces of these Cardinal players. - Get up, baby.
01:59:15Elation turns into concern for their fallen teammate.
01:59:17MICHAELS: Cardinal trainer comes onto the field...
01:59:19As Tidwell makes his ninth catch of the night... Oh, my God.
01:59:22And gives Arizona the lead. Hey!
