How you doing?|
What did he say?|
|00:02:43||Uh-huh. Is he still there?
How long ago did he leave?|
|00:02:47||Uh-huh. I'm stopping here,
then I got a little meeting,|
|00:02:51||and then I'll...
I would if I could.|
|00:02:54||As soon as I can.
Let me get off and I...|
|00:02:57||let me get off and I prom...
I promise you it'll be okay.|
|00:03:03||A bunch of bullshit.
Waste a good man's time.|
|00:03:14||Hi, could I speak
to Dr. Lowenstein, please?|
|00:03:18||It's rather important.
Could you get him for me?|
|00:03:20||Bunch of bullshit trying to make
a living on these deadbeat leads.|
|00:03:23||I swear to God, Shel,
I'm on a sit today...|
|00:03:25||Hello, Mrs. Swoboda,
this is Dave Moss.|
|00:03:29||Yeah, we spoke yesterday.|
|00:03:31||Now on the Rio Rancho Estates,
we've had a situation just come up.|
|00:03:35||The president of our company
is in town just one day,|
|00:03:37||- and he has certain parcels...
|00:03:40||well, could you get...
what do you mean?|
|00:03:43||He's not there?
I have to speak to him.|
|00:03:46||Yes, it is fairly urgent.
|00:03:50||No, I can't be reached.
I'll get back to him.|
|00:03:54||He has certain parcels...
certain choice parcels|
|00:03:56||which he's given me
a hold on for the next 48 hours.|
|00:03:59||What would be the best time to get
you and your husband together?|
|00:04:02||Say, tonight, at 10:00,
or tomorrow at 8:00?|
|00:04:09||Okay, what would be
the best time to do that?|
|00:04:14||Look, you sent in the...
no, no, listen to me now...|
|00:04:17||I've got 48 hours
to make you a lot of money.|
|00:04:22||Well, when will he be home?
Fine, I'll call you back in 10 minutes.|
|00:04:28||They don't give you the leads,
they don't give you the support,|
|00:04:30||- they don't give you dick.
|00:04:32||Then they're yanking us in
on some sales conference.|
|00:04:34||When's the last time anybody
learned a goddamn thing?|
|00:04:37||All it does is some jerk
shoots his mouth off.|
|00:04:42||I swear to God, Shel, I got half a mind
to go across the street.|
|00:04:45||I got half a mind to go
with you if they'd take me.|
|00:04:48||You never know... I was talking
to Jerry Graff last week.|
|00:04:53||I got to call
these deadbeats back.|
|00:04:57||I can't make a goddamn
dollar with these leads,|
|00:04:59||and you're killing my ass
on the street.|
|00:05:01||- I'm sorry you aren't happy here.
- That's cute,|
|00:05:04||but you're running this office
like a bunch of bullshit.|
|00:05:06||You're on an override...
you make money, we make money.|
|00:05:08||- I'd like you to make more money.
- Then don't go waste my time.|
|00:05:11||- A sales conference?
- The strategy comes from downtown.|
|00:05:14||Oh, the strategy?
|00:05:17||- Well, I think I'll pass.
- I wouldn't.|
|00:05:19||- Why is that?
- When you come, then you'll see.|
|00:05:25||Are you ready
to do or die tonight?|
always ready, John.|
|00:05:29||Always ready, John.
Now, one thing...|
|00:05:31||we were talking about the leads.
We got some new ones?|
|00:05:33||That's what we're going
to talk about at the meeting.|
|00:05:36||We are? Because I'm running
into a bit of a snag.|
|00:05:38||Yes, I've seen
your sales figures.|
|00:05:40||That's the leads.
You give me a better lead...|
|00:05:42||That's what we're going
to be talking about.|
|00:05:44||I'm in a bind...
|00:05:46||- I could use a leg up.
- After the meeting.|
|00:05:48||- I hear the new Glengarry leads...
- After the meeting, Shel.|
|00:05:51||- Hey, Ricky.
- Hello, John.|
|00:05:53||- Wet out there tonight.
|00:05:56||- Wet out there tonight.
|00:06:00||- Maybe it'll break the heat.
|00:06:06||Al, give me a quick J&B, huh?
|00:06:14||- They say...
|00:06:17||they say it was so hot
downtown this afternoon,|
|00:06:21||grown men on the street corner
were going up to cops|
|00:06:25||begging the cops
to shoot them.|
|00:06:29||They say you should not drink
alcohol when it's so hot.|
|00:06:33||- Who says that?
- Something I read.|
|00:06:37||For they say
it dehydrates you.|
you should drink water,|
|00:06:44||but I subscribe to the law
of contrary public opinion.|
|00:06:49||If everyone thinks one thing,
then I say bet the other way.|
|00:06:54||Added to which,
you know they're wrong.|
|00:06:56||That's what I'm saying.|
|00:07:02||- Slow tonight.
- Oh, yeah.|
|00:07:05||Well, I guess
everybody's staying home.|
|00:07:07||If my daughter calls,
|00:07:09||I'm over at the office.
|00:07:46||I had a woman
in White Plains on the hook...|
|00:07:48||five units, Mountain View...
|00:07:51||She has to check
with her lawyer.|
|00:07:53||- You let her check with her lawyer?
- What could I do?|
|00:07:56||- I dunno.
- Who's the guy?|
|00:08:01||Couldn't tell you.|
|00:08:03||I don't like the whole thing,
because all I need is a lead.|
|00:08:06||- They won't give out...
|00:08:08||The rich get richer,
that's the law of the land.|
to the BM?|
|00:08:18||It is 7:30.|
|00:08:20||So who is that?|
|00:08:24||And where is
|00:08:26||Well, I'm not a leash,
so I don't know, do I?|
|00:08:28||Let me have
your attention for a moment.|
|00:08:32||You're talking about what?
You're talking about...|
that sale you shot,|
|00:08:39||some son of a bitch
don't want to buy land,|
|00:08:41||somebody don't want
what you're selling,|
|00:08:43||some broad you're
trying to screw, so forth.|
about something important.|
|00:08:47||- Are they all here?
- All but one.|
|00:08:49||I'm going anyway.|
about something important.|
|00:08:53||Put that coffee down.|
|00:09:00||Coffee's for closers only.|
I'm fucking with you?|
|00:09:12||I am not fucking with you.|
|00:09:14||I'm here from downtown.|
from Mitch and Murray.|
|00:09:18||And I'm here
on a mission of mercy.|
|00:09:25||- Your name's Levene?
|00:09:29||You call yourself a salesman,
you son of a bitch?|
|00:09:33||I don't got to listen
to this shit.|
|00:09:34||You certainly don't, 'cause
the good news is, you're fired.|
|00:09:39||The bad news is you've got...
all of you've got...|
|00:09:42||just one week
to regain your jobs,|
|00:09:44||starting with tonight...
starting with tonight's sit.|
|00:09:50||Oh, have I got
your attention now?|
|00:09:59||'cause we're adding
a little something|
|00:10:01||to this month's
|00:10:03||As you all know, first prize
is a Cadillac Eldorado.|
|00:10:06||Anybody want to see
|00:10:08||Second prize is
a set of steak knives.|
|00:10:14||Third prize is you're fired.|
|00:10:20||Do you get the picture?
Are you laughing now?|
|00:10:24||You got leads. Mitch and Murray
paid good money.|
|00:10:28||Get their names
to sell them.|
|00:10:30||You can't close
the leads you're given,|
|00:10:32||you can't close shit,
you are shit!|
|00:10:35||Hit the bricks, pal, and beat it,
'cause you are going out!|
|00:10:39||- The leads are weak.
- The leads are weak?|
|00:10:42||The fucking leads are weak?
in this business 15 years.|
|00:10:47||- What's your name?
- Fuck you...|
|00:10:49||that's my name!
You know why, mister?|
|00:10:52||Because you drove a Hyundai
to get here tonight,|
|00:10:54||I drove an $80,000 BMW.
That's my name.|
|00:11:03||And your name
is "You're wanting."|
|00:11:07||You can't play in the man's game?
You can't close them?|
|00:11:10||Then go home and tell your wife
|00:11:14||Because only one thing
counts in this life...|
|00:11:17||get them to sign
on the line which is dotted!|
|00:11:21||You hear me,
you fucking faggots?|
B... Be, C... Closing.|
|00:11:36||Always Be Closing.|
|00:11:38||"Always Be Closing."|
Do I have your attention?|
Are you interested?|
|00:11:52||I know you are,
because it's fuck or walk.|
or you hit the bricks.|
|00:11:57||Decision... Have you made
your decision for Christ?|
|00:12:06||Get out there...
you got the prospects coming in.|
|00:12:08||You think they came in
to get out of the rain?|
|00:12:10||A guy don't walk on the lot
lest he wants to buy.|
|00:12:13||They're sitting out there
waiting to give you their money.|
|00:12:16||Are you gonna take it?|
|00:12:18||Are you man enough
to take it?|
|00:12:30||What's the problem, pal?
|00:12:32||You're such a hero,
you're so rich,|
|00:12:34||how come you're here wasting
your time with a bunch of bums?|
|00:12:40||You see this watch?|
|00:12:45||- You see this watch?
|00:12:49||That watch costs
more than your car.|
|00:12:52||I made $970,000 last year.
How much you make?|
|00:12:58||You see, pal... that's who I am,
and you're nothing.|
I don't give a shit.|
|00:13:08||Good father? Fuck you...
go home and play with your kids.|
|00:13:12||You want to work here...
|00:13:16||You think this is abuse?|
|00:13:20||You think this is abuse,
|00:13:22||You can't take this, how can you
take the abuse you get on a sit?|
|00:13:26||You don't like it, leave.|
|00:13:32||I can go out there tonight...
the materials you got...|
|00:13:35||make myself $15,000.
Tonight... in two hours!|
|00:13:47||Go and do likewise.
|00:13:50||Get mad, you son of a bitches.
|00:13:53||You know what it takes
to sell real estate?|
|00:13:57||It takes brass balls
to sell real estate.|
|00:14:05||Go and do likewise,
|00:14:08||The money's out there...
you pick it up, it's yours,|
I got no sympathy for you.|
|00:14:13||You want to go out
on those sits tonight and close...|
|00:14:15||close... it's yours.|
|00:14:17||Not, you're gonna be
shining my shoes.|
|00:14:19||And you know
what you'll be saying.|
|00:14:22||Bunch of losers
sitting around in a bar,|
|00:14:24||"Oh yeah, I used to be a salesman.
It's a tough racket."|
|00:14:37||These are the new leads.|
the Glengarry leads.|
|00:14:43||And to you, they're gold.
And you don't get them.|
|00:14:50||Because to give them to you
is just throwing them away.|
|00:14:58||They're for closers.|
|00:15:07||I'd wish you good luck,|
|00:15:08||but you wouldn't know what
to do with it if you got it.|
|00:15:15||And to answer your question, pal...
"Why am I here?"|
|00:15:20||I came here because
Mitch and Murray asked me to.|
|00:15:23||They asked me for a favor.
I said, "The real favor...|
|00:15:25||follow my advice
and fire your fucking ass,|
|00:15:29||because a loser
is a loser."|
|00:15:43||Bunch of fucking nonsense...|
|00:15:45||treat people like that.|
|00:15:49||The fuck is he going
to get off?|
|00:15:52||- Mickey Mouse sales conference.
- He didn't mean it.|
|00:15:56||I'm sure he didn't mean it about
trimming down the sales quota.|
|00:15:59||Where is Roma?
Where the hell is Mr. Ricky Roma?|
|00:16:01||All the while we got to sit here,
eat this nonsense?|
|00:16:03||Hello? Mr. Levene.
How's she doing?|
Is she awake?|
|00:16:09||Oh, the doctor came by.
What did he say?|
I can't come in tonight.|
|00:16:15||I think... I know she is.
I know that she is.|
|00:16:18||I've gotta go out. Will you please
tell her when she wakes?|
|00:16:22||I've got to go out.
Tell her I'll call her from the road.|
you heard the man.|
|00:16:33||What is this in aid of?|
|00:16:35||- As of tonight...
- What is this? Excuse me.|
|00:16:37||What it's in aid of
is that Mitch and Murray...|
|00:16:39||Fuck Mitch and Murray!
I'm doing my job,|
|00:16:42||I got to put up
with this childishness?|
|00:16:44||I don't make the rules.
I'm paid to run the office.|
|00:16:46||You don't like the rules, Dave?
There's the door!|
|00:16:50||Two lead cards for tonight,
two lead cards for tomorrow.|
|00:16:55||As you heard,
end of the month,|
|00:16:56||top salesman on the board
gets the Eldorado.|
|00:16:59||- Next man down the...
- What about the good leads?|
|00:17:01||- The leads I've given you.
- But these leads are shit.|
I've seen that name 100 times.|
|00:17:05||- The leads are assigned randomly.
- What about the new leads?|
|00:17:08||The new leads...
the Glengarry leads.|
|00:17:10||I've got them.
I'm going to hang onto them.|
|00:17:13||And they'll be
assigned to closers,|
|00:17:15||based on the sales volume,
first to Roma.|
|00:17:17||- Where is Roma?
- Don't worry about Roma.|
|00:17:19||He'll get his leads,
you've got yours.|
|00:17:21||He's top name on the board,
so he don't have to be here?|
And as the hour is waning,|
|00:17:26||I suggest you... those of you
who are interested|
|00:17:29||in a continuing job with
this organization, get to work.|
|00:17:34||- Thank you for your attention.
|00:17:35||How am I supposed to close these?
Look at this.|
|00:17:40||I've had this guy before.
I've been to his house twice.|
|00:17:43||I... I can't...
I can't close this stuff.|
|00:17:49||Shelly, how am I
to bounce me out of a job.|
|00:18:03||Hello, Mr. Palermo?
Mr. Robert Speice?|
this is George Aaronow.|
|00:18:13||I'm with Rio.
I spoke with your wife earlier.|
|00:18:16||I'm the vice president of Rio Rancho
Properties in Furman, Arizona.|
|00:18:20||Yes. I'm calling from the airport,
and consulting my map,|
|00:18:25||I see that you and your wife
live near the airport.|
|00:18:27||I have some rather...
|00:18:30||rather good information
on the property...|
|00:18:33||Hello? Hello, this is
|00:18:37||Please listen closely...
I only have a moment or so.|
|00:18:40||I can speak only
to a Mrs. Nyborg.|
|00:18:44||Oh, this is Mrs. Nyborg.
Please listen closely, Mrs. Nyborg.|
|00:18:48||I'm calling from Consolidated
Properties of Arizona.|
|00:18:51||Our computer has chosen you
from all of the many thousands|
|00:18:55||who write in requesting
information on our properties.|
|00:18:58||Now by federal law,
as you probably know,|
|00:19:01||the prize must be awarded to you
even if you are not engaged|
|00:19:05||in our land
|00:19:07||The only stipulation, of course,
is that you and your husband|
|00:19:10||must sign at the same time
for the receipt of your prize.|
|00:19:14||Now, I will be in the area
tonight, possibly tomorrow.|
|00:19:18||What do you think might be
a convenient time to meet|
|00:19:21||with both you
and your husband?|
|00:19:23||Of course I'll hold.|
|00:19:39||- Bunch of fucking nonsense, huh?
- I can't close them.|
|00:19:41||- Nobody can close 'em.
- They're old.|
a bunch of fucking nonsense.|
|00:19:45||Get some jerk
to come in here...|
|00:19:48||Sometimes I think,
"I wonder if I belong in this business."|
|00:19:50||Send a guy out there...
no support, no confidence.|
|00:19:53||Then I say,
"Nobody can close 'em."|
|00:19:56||- Then I look at Roma.
- Roma... fuck Roma.|
|00:19:58||Had a freak...
a little run of luck.|
|00:20:00||The leads are garbage.|
|00:20:03||Then I say,
"Why give him the good leads?|
|00:20:05||- He doesn't need 'em."
- You going out?|
|00:20:07||Yeah. I have to go out.
I can't make a sit.|
|00:20:12||- Have you tried?
- Yeah. Something's wrong with me.|
|00:20:16||What is it?
I can't push through.|
|00:20:18||Get your coat on.
You're coming out with me.|
|00:20:20||- Something in me.
- Forget it.|
|00:20:22||- I try, I try.
- I said forget it, come on.|
|00:20:26||I can't close 'em.|
|00:20:33||I swear to God,
you work all your life...|
|00:20:35||- Forget it, George.
- Roma, so on...|
|00:20:40||- so gifted.
- Gifted, my ass!|
|00:20:42||- The guy gets a string of luck.
- No, no, no.|
|00:20:46||The thing of it is,
|00:20:47||When times are tight,
it don't do no good|
|00:20:49||to throw around,
"Just go out and sell."|
|00:20:52||Threaten a man all you want,
you can't whip a dead horse.|
- All this garbage...|
you win a Cadillac;|
|00:20:58||you lose, we're gonna fire
your ass"? It's medieval.|
- It's wrong.|
- Yes it is,|
|00:21:04||and you know
- You know who it is.|
|00:21:08||It's Mitch and Murray,
'cause it don't have to be this way.|
- Look at Jerry Graff.|
|00:21:12||He's clean, he's doing
business for himself,|
|00:21:14||he's got that list...
with the nurses?|
|00:21:16||You see? That's thinking.
Why take a 10% sales commission?|
|00:21:21||Why are we giving the rest away?
What are we giving 90% for?|
For some jerk in the office,|
|00:21:27||telling us, "Get out there and close,
go win a Cadillac."|
|00:21:29||Graff goes out and buys.
He pays top dollar.|
|00:21:32||- You see?
|00:21:33||For the leads... that's thinking.
Now, he's got the leads,|
|00:21:36||he goes in business for himself.
That's what? That's thinking.|
|00:21:41||Who... who's got
a steady job,|
|00:21:43||a regular job,
a couple of bucks nobody's touched?|
|00:21:46||Graff goes and buys
a fucking list of nurses. One grand...|
|00:21:48||he paid two, I'll eat my hat.
4,000 or 5,000 nurses.|
|00:21:51||- He's going wild.
- He is?|
|00:21:53||- Yeah, he's doing very well.
- I heard they were running cold.|
|00:21:56||- The nurses?
|00:21:58||You hear a lot of things.
He's doing very well.|
|00:22:01||- With River Oaks?
- River Oaks, Brook Farms.|
|00:22:03||All that shit. Somebody told me...
you know what he's clearing, himself?|
|00:22:06||- 14, 15 grand a week.
|00:22:09||That's what I'm saying.
Why? He's got the leads.|
|00:22:12||He's got the good leads.
What are we?|
in the shit here. Why?|
|00:22:17||Because we got to go to them
to get them.|
|00:22:19||90% of our sales we're paying
to the office for the leads.|
|00:22:22||There's our leads, there's overhead,
phones, a lot of stuff.|
|00:22:26||What do you need?
|00:22:28||Some broad to say, "Good morning"?
Nothing. It's the leads.|
|00:22:31||The whole thing is the leads,
you understand me?|
|00:22:33||You can't sell to a void...
you got to get a goddamn person.|
|00:22:36||You get a lead, you get
a person... I'll go sell 'em.|
|00:22:39||Otherwise, what do they want
from my life?|
Dan, it's Shel Levene.|
|00:22:45||Yeah, we spoke...
last May I called you.|
|00:22:48||I was in town from my estate
in Rio Rancho, and...|
|00:22:53||I wish we could have
gotten together at that time.|
|00:22:55||Danny, that piece of property I had
for you has increased in value...|
what was that figure? $76,000.|
|00:23:05||Oh, Danny, I wish you could have
been in on it with me.|
|00:23:07||Look, I'm here overnight...
I have to go home tomorrow,|
|00:23:10||and I thought, after the interest
you showed on the last trip, that...|
|00:23:14||Hold it, Grace. Danny,
I know that you're serious,|
|00:23:18||and because of that, I am going
to shove my appointments around|
|00:23:21||and make sure...
oh, gee, I wish that...|
|00:23:26||All right, Danny.
Yeah, all right.|
|00:23:40||Going out tonight,
|00:23:47||What is this bullshit
with the sales promotion?|
|00:23:50||It isn't bullshit.
It's the way it is.|
|00:23:51||You're going to fire
the bottom men on the list?|
|00:23:53||That's the way it is
and I don't make the rules.|
|00:23:56||- The rules come from downtown.
- I got a problem here, John.|
|00:23:59||- I'm closing up the office.
- Come have a drink with me.|
|00:24:02||- I've got to get home.
- Do me the courtesy... five minutes?|
|00:24:05||I am trying to get home
for two hours.|
|00:24:07||I got to go home, grab one hour
with my kids, come back here,|
|00:24:10||see if any of you closed
a contract, take the contract...|
|00:24:13||- How about one minute?
- What is it?|
|00:24:17||- I can't close these leads.
- Then move on.|
|00:24:19||Don't jump! Don't jump out
of your manager bag a second.|
|00:24:23||It's just two guys talking,
am I right? We're just talking.|
|00:24:27||You got the new leads.
If you would give me... just hold on.|
|00:24:30||The Glengarry leads are to be
assigned only to closers.|
|00:24:33||Hold on a second.
If you give me the good leads...|
|00:24:35||You blew the last good one
I gave you.|
|00:24:37||No, no... hold on,
|00:24:39||I did not blow 'em.
One kicked out. One, I closed.|
|00:24:41||- You didn't close it.
- Would you listen to me?|
|00:24:43||I closed that cocksucker!
His ex! John, his ex!|
|00:24:47||I didn't even know he was married.
The judge invalidated it.|
|00:24:51||What was that job, huh?
Bad luck. That's all it was.|
|00:24:53||I pray you never find it...
it runs in streaks.|
|00:24:56||That's what it's doing,
that's all it does... streaks.|
|00:24:59||I pray that it misses you
and that's all I have to say.|
|00:25:02||Shit, I've got to eat.
|00:25:05||look at the sheets.
Look at the sheets.|
|00:25:10||1987, '88, '89...
six months in '89... who's on top?|
- Under him?|
- Oh, bullshit, John!|
|00:25:18||April to September it's me...
it's no fucking Moss.|
he's an order-taker.|
|00:25:23||Talk... talks a good game,
but look on the board, it's me.|
|00:25:27||- Not lately it isn't.
- Not late...|
kiss my ass "lately."|
|00:25:31||You call Murray and you call Mitch...
when we were on Peterson,|
|00:25:34||who do you think bought the new car?
Call Mitch. The Seville?|
|00:25:37||He came in here...
"You bought that for me, fella."|
|00:25:40||And out of what? Hey, look at me!
Out of what? Nothing!|
You want to talk about a sale?|
|00:25:46||You are really
beginning to burn my ass, kid.|
|00:25:49||I can't get a lead, you...
it was skill, John.|
|00:25:53||It could be working for you...
you want to throw it away.|
|00:25:56||- It isn't me.
- It's not you...|
|00:25:58||I wonder who it is.
Who the fuck am I talking to?|
|00:26:01||- I need the leads to sell.
- After the contest. After the 30th.|
"After the contest."|
|00:26:07||If I'm not on that board by the 30th,
they're going to can my ass.|
|00:26:13||I need those leads
and I need 'em now or I'm out.|
|00:26:21||You're going to miss me.
I swear to you, you will miss me.|
|00:26:27||Let me tell you
|00:26:29||I do what I'm hired to do...
you might do the same.|
- Now wait a second!|
|00:26:36||I'm hired to watch the leads,
to marshal my sales force.|
|00:26:40||I'm given a policy.
My job is to do that.|
|00:26:42||Marshal your sales force?|
|00:26:44||Anybody falls below
a certain mark, I'm directed.|
|00:26:47||I'm not permitted
to give them the premium leads.|
|00:26:49||How do they rise
above that mark? With dreck?|
|00:26:53||With this toilet paper
you're giving me?|
|00:26:55||You give me
one premium lead...|
|00:26:57||Do you know what
the premium leads cost?|
|00:26:59||Do I know what
the premium leads cost?|
I know what they cost.|
|00:27:02||I generated the sufficient
dollar revenue to buy them.|
|00:27:06||But I cannot sell shit!|
|00:27:09||Jesus. And I've seen
these before, you know.|
|00:27:11||Christ, I saw these back...
|00:27:13||1985, we pitched
these cocksuckers Baywater.|
|00:27:16||They couldn't buy a fucking toaster.
They're broke. They're deadbeats.|
|00:27:20||Just give me some leads that don't
come out of a phone book.|
|00:27:23||You give me something hotter
than that and I can close it.|
|00:27:26||It's just a streak.
I'm gonna turn it around.|
|00:27:28||Hey, I need your help.|
|00:27:34||I can't do it,
|00:27:44||I'll give you 10%.|
|00:27:47||- Of what?
- My end... what I close.|
|00:27:49||You give me the premium leads,
you're in for 10%, what I close.|
|00:27:52||- And what if you don't close?
- I will.|
|00:27:54||- What if you don't close?
- I will close.|
|00:27:56||What if you don't,
|00:27:59||Then I'm fucked. You think you're
the only guy with a family?|
|00:28:02||- You see what I'm saying?
|00:28:03||I step out and you don't close,
then it's my job.|
|00:28:06||- Then I'm fucked.
- I will close!|
|00:28:08||Now, 10% John...
I can get hot, you know that.|
|00:28:11||- Not lately you can't.
- That's defeatist... fuck it!|
|00:28:13||Go with me. Get on my side
and let's do something.|
|00:28:16||You want to run this office?
You heard what the man said...|
Let's do something.|
|00:28:27||- All right.
- And 50 bucks a lead.|
I got to talk to you.|
|00:28:58||Permit me to do this a second.
I'm older than you.|
|00:29:03||A man acquires a reputation
on the street.|
|00:29:07||What he does when he's up,
what he does at other times...|
|00:29:10||I said, "10," you said, "No."
You said, "20," I said, "Fine."|
|00:29:13||Now you want to throw
this 50-buck thing in.|
|00:29:16||John, a good deal... has got to be
one where both parties...|
|00:29:21||Okay, okay, okay, fine...
20%, 50 bucks a lead. It's done.|
|00:29:25||Let's go out.
We make some money.|
|00:29:27||I got bills to pay.
I want two sits tonight|
|00:29:29||and I want the good leads...
the Glengarry leads... two.|
|00:29:32||Two, John, because
I am going to close 'em both.|
|00:29:34||It's a long road
with no turning, pally.|
Now, let's go.|
|00:29:40||I've got to go back
to the office to get 'em.|
|00:29:43||Go on, let's go.
This is what I was saying, John.|
|00:29:47||All you need, a little boost,
you turn a streak around.|
|00:29:49||Am I right? Good, huh?
- Two leads, 100 bucks.|
- Now, yes. When?|
|00:30:00||- Shit, John.
- I wish I could.|
|00:30:02||You fucking asshole.|
|00:30:05||I don't have it...
|00:30:08||I'll bring it in the office
in the morning.|
|00:30:11||- I'll be coming with the sales.
|00:30:16||I can't fucking
|00:30:18||All right, here's...|
|00:30:22||20... 30, and...|
|00:30:24||Jesus, here's the 30.
I'll bring the rest in tomorrow.|
|00:30:28||We got to do this, huh, pal?
For Christ's sake!|
|00:30:33||- My daughter...
- I can't do it, Shelly.|
|00:30:38||I got to tell you something.
It wasn't so long ago,|
|00:30:41||I'd pick up the phone
and call Murray... I got your job.|
|00:30:45||"Murray, the kid is burning my ass."
"Shelly, he's gone."|
|00:30:48||You are gone before
I'm back from lunch.|
|00:30:53||Bought him a trip
to Bermuda once.|
|00:30:55||- I've got to go.
- All right, hey.|
|00:30:57||Give me... I'll take two more
of the old leads.|
|00:31:01||- I gave you two today.
- One is a bust-out, John!|
|00:31:04||- The other ain't home!
|00:31:06||I promise you,
I've been on the phone... I know.|
|00:31:07||No more leads today...
two per day. You've got yours.|
|00:31:11||- All right?
|00:31:19||We will do that...
|00:31:25||I guess I left
my wallet in my room.|
Deadbeats, all of 'em.|
I shouldn't have took the leads.|
|00:31:41||- You had to.
- Yeah? Why?|
|00:31:44||- To get on the...
- To get on the board, yeah.|
|00:31:46||How am I gonna get on the board
trying to sell a doctor?|
two chocolate donuts.|
|00:31:50||Give me the same thing to go.
And don't try and sell an Indian.|
|00:31:53||I will never try to sell
|00:31:55||These names come up...
you ever get 'em..."Patel"?|
|00:31:57||- You ever get 'em?
- I think I had one once.|
|00:32:00||You had one,
you'd know it..."Patel."|
|00:32:03||They keep coming up.
I don't know.|
|00:32:04||They like to talk to salesmen.
|00:32:07||They like to feel superior...
never bought a fucking thing.|
|00:32:09||I don't know.
Come down the line...|
|00:32:12||doctors, lawyers, Indians...
times are tight. It's tight.|
|00:32:17||Pressure's just too great.
Man can't work all of 'em.|
|00:32:21||You go in the door... I got to close
this fucker or I don't eat lunch,|
|00:32:25||or I don't win a Cadillac.
We work too hard, George.|
|00:32:31||Remember when we were... when we
were selling Glen Ross Farms?|
|00:32:36||Didn't we sell
a bunch of that?|
|00:32:39||- They came in...
- They fucked it up.|
|00:32:41||- They did.
- They killed the goose. And now...|
|00:32:43||- We're stuck with this...
- Stuck with this fucking shit.|
|00:32:45||- This shit.
- It's too...|
|00:32:47||- It is.
- You get a bad month...|
|00:32:49||they put you on this board.
Some contest board.|
|00:32:53||- It's not right.
- It's not right to the customers.|
|00:32:55||I know, it's... hey. What did I learn
as a kid on Western?|
|00:32:59||Don't sell a guy one car.
Sell him five cars over 15 years.|
|00:33:04||- That's right.
- You're goddamn right, it's right.|
|00:33:06||Guys come in..."Oh, the blah,
blah, blah. I know what I'll do.|
|00:33:09||I'll go out and rob everybody
blind and go to Argentina|
|00:33:11||'cause nobody ever
thought of this before."|
|00:33:13||So they kill the goose
and the man's worked all his life...|
|00:33:16||- That's right.
- He's got to cower in his boots...|
|00:33:19||For some fucking "Sell 10,000,
win the steak knives."|
|00:33:23||- What do you do?
- What can you do?|
|00:33:25||What can you do
if you don't have the leads?|
|00:33:27||If you do not
have the goddamn leads!|
|00:33:33||I was speaking
to your wife earlier?|
|00:33:38||- "Cats and dogs," huh?
|00:33:40||Oh, "cats and dogs."|
|00:33:45||Oh, I see you're
interested in fishing.|
- I've fished myself... many years.|
Ooh, a beauty.|
|00:33:56||- Where's the missus?
- Out at the PTA.|
- What was this in reference?|
|00:34:01||I spoke to your wife
earlier on the phone.|
|00:34:03||I called, I'm in town
with Rio Rancho.|
|00:34:05||Yes, I'm sorry. She said you had
some sort of award?|
|00:34:08||Yes, I was speaking to the people
in my sales organization...|
|00:34:11||my representatives in this area...
and Mr. Spannel...|
|00:34:15||your name is Larry.
Mind if I call you Larry?|
|00:34:18||All right, Larry.
We had a consultant,|
|00:34:22||and he made me...
he made me an offer.|
|00:34:25||He offered me $230,000
to promote a sales plan...|
|00:34:29||to present investment opportunities
in Rio Rancho to the public.|
|00:34:33||Well, I said, "Hell,
let me save you the 230,|
|00:34:37||and pass the savings
along to the investor."|
|00:34:40||My people immediately said,
"Whoa, how do you do that?|
|00:34:43||How can you present
without magazine ads?"|
|00:34:48||I said, "You take
something this good,|
|00:34:50||you go to a man...
has invested in the past...|
|00:34:53||you go to him direct and offer
the money to him... rebate.|
|00:34:57||And don't give it
to this expert."|
|00:35:01||So you're here
to sell me some land?|
|00:35:03||No, I wouldn't try
to sell you...|
|00:35:05||I leave that to the salesmen
and people who want to own land.|
|00:35:09||I think something
has to be fed,|
|00:35:12||watered and painted,
but don't invest in it.|
|00:35:15||That motto has stood me
in good stead.|
- Just call me Shelly.|
|00:35:19||I have never
been afraid of familiarity.|
|00:35:22||I'm walking out the door.
I've got to pick up my wife at the...|
|00:35:24||Let's take my car.
We'll pick her up together.|
|00:35:26||Spoke to the little woman
on the phone... can't wait to meet her.|
|00:35:29||No, we're going
over to our relatives'.|
|00:35:31||- She didn't say anything about that.
- I'm sure she forgot.|
|00:35:33||- I'm on a plane to Florida...
- I'm sorry if we put you out.|
|00:35:36||You didn't put me out.
I'm just trying to think, Larry.|
|00:35:39||You know, that's the only parcel
that I've got.|
|00:35:41||You know what I'm gonna do?
I'm gonna go back to the computer,|
|00:35:44||I'm gonna pull another one, and we're
gonna speak to your relatives, too.|
|00:35:47||- No, no, no.
- C'mon, you're a busy man, so am I.|
|00:35:50||My God, I'm in the act
of giving a gift away.|
|00:35:53||Look, I don't want to buy land.
I don't want to invest in land.|
|00:35:56||I have nothing. She took the call
without my knowledge.|
|00:36:00||I have no business
that I wish to transact.|
|00:36:03||I don't want to tell you
how to handle your wife.|
|00:36:04||My wife filled in a form, and we
have been plagued for the last year...|
|00:36:08||That's the situation
I'm trying to alleviate, Larry.|
Do you understand?|
|00:36:14||Thank you. No.|
|00:36:32||- Roma, man... he don't care.
- He don't care.|
|00:36:34||He's sitting on top of the world.
He's got good leads, good prospects.|
|00:36:38||- Sales, sales.
- Sales contests.|
|00:36:40||- That's what I'm saying.
- Times turn hard, they bounce you out.|
|00:36:43||If they bounce you with no
|00:36:45||That's what I'm saying.
That's what I'm saying to you.|
|00:36:53||If they get you
on a bad beat...|
|00:36:56||and you got to go out there,
get a new job...|
|00:36:58||- With no...
- With no confidence...|
|00:37:02||I'll tell you what the hard part is...
to stop thinking like a goddamn slave.|
|00:37:06||You say the Nazis
"If they came in my door"...|
|00:37:10||bullshit, the time is now.
What do you do now?|
|00:37:12||Some guy pissing in your face.
|00:37:15||wants to break your rice bowl.|
|00:37:17||Mitch and Murray, fuck you.
What I say... fuck you!|
|00:37:21||Sitting on the good leads.|
|00:37:24||George, we're men here.|
|00:37:29||And I'll tell you...
I'll tell you what the hard part is.|
- Starting up.|
Breaking free of this bullshit,|
|00:37:39||this enslavement to some guy,
'cause he's got the upper hand.|
|00:37:45||This is the difference...
listen to me, George.|
|00:37:48||Now Jerry Graff went
into business for himself.|
|00:37:50||He said, "I'm going on my own."
And he was free, you understand me?|
|00:37:57||I'll tell you... I'll tell you
what somebody should do.|
|00:38:04||Somebody should stand up
and strike back.|
|00:38:07||Somebody should do something
- Something to pay them back.|
|00:38:12||Someone should hurt them,
Mitch and Murray.|
|00:38:13||- Somebody should hurt them?
- Someone should do something|
|00:38:17||- to hurt them where they live.
|00:38:19||Someone should rob the office.
That's what I'm saying.|
|00:38:22||If we were that kind of guy
to hold up the joint and trash it,|
|00:38:26||it looks like robbery,
we take the leads out of the files|
|00:38:29||and we go to Jerry Graff.|
|00:38:31||And we take the fucking
Glengarry leads! Huh?|
|00:38:38||Yeah, Mr. Nyborg? Ah, Mr. Nyborg,
|00:38:41||I was speaking to your wife earlier.
|00:38:44||I'd like to speak to you
about awarding you your prize.|
|00:38:47||We're coming to the end
of our fiscal year,|
|00:38:49||I'd really like to get it
off the books before...|
|00:38:52||yes, the prize
for Consolidated Properties.|
|00:38:55||The information you requested
on Rio Rancho.|
|00:38:58||Now, I'm in town only for...
well, let me see.|
|00:39:01||I suppose I could
swing by tonight. Yes. Uh-huh.|
|00:39:04||When do you think
it might be more convenient?|
|00:39:07||As I said,
I could swing by tonight...|
|00:39:09||well, of course,
you speak to your wife.|
|00:39:12||Grace, I'm gonna need|
|00:39:14||a first-class seat,
passport, 10,000 in cash,|
|00:39:17||put that with the negotiable
papers, if you would.|
|00:39:19||And put me
on the telex hookup... yes?|
|00:39:23||Well, when do you think
Mrs. Nyborg might be back?|
|00:39:27||All train compartments
smell vaguely of shit.|
|00:39:30||It gets so you don't
|00:39:34||That's the worst thing
that I can confess.|
|00:39:37||You know how long it took me
to get there? A long time.|
|00:39:41||When you die you're gonna regret
the things you don't do.|
|00:39:46||You think you're queer?
I'm gonna tell you something.|
|00:39:49||We're all queer.
You think you're a thief? So what?|
|00:39:52||You get befuddled
by a middle-class morality?|
|00:39:55||Get shut of it.
Shut it out.|
|00:39:57||You cheat on your wife,
you did it. Live with it.|
|00:40:01||You fuck little girls,
so be it.|
|00:40:05||There's an absolute morality?
|00:40:08||And then what?|
|00:40:11||If you think there is,
go ahead, be that thing.|
|00:40:15||Bad people go to hell?
I don't think so.|
|00:40:18||You think that,
act that way.|
|00:40:20||A hell exists on earth?
Yes. I won't live in it.|
|00:40:33||Did you ever take a dump, made you
feel like you slept for 12 hours?|
|00:40:37||- Did I?
|00:40:40||- I don't know.
- Or a piss?|
|00:40:47||Great meals fade
|00:40:50||Everything else gains.
Do you know why?|
|00:40:53||'Cause it's only food.
This shit we put in us,|
|00:40:57||keeps us going...
it's only food.|
|00:41:00||The great fucks
you may have had,|
|00:41:03||what do you remember
|00:41:05||- What do I remember?
|00:41:11||I don't know.
|00:41:12||I'm saying what it is,
it's probably not the orgasm.|
|00:41:18||Some broad's forearm
on your neck,|
|00:41:21||something her eyes did.
There was this sound she made.|
|00:41:27||Or it's me in the...
I'm telling you...|
|00:41:30||I'm in bed the next day,
she brought me café au lait,|
|00:41:34||gives me a cigarette,
my balls feel like concrete.|
|00:41:41||What I'm saying,
what is our life?|
|00:41:45||Our life is looking forward
or it's looking back.|
That's our life.|
|00:41:53||Where's the moment?|
|00:42:00||And what is it
we're so afraid of?|
|00:42:03||Loss. What else?|
|00:42:05||The bank closes, we get sick,
my wife died on a plane?|
|00:42:11||The stock market collapsed?
What of these things happen?|
|00:42:15||None of them.
We worry anyway. Why?|
|00:42:20||What could we get
|00:42:21||- For them?
- For the leads.|
|00:42:24||What could we get
for the leads?|
|00:42:26||I don't know. 10 bucks a throw.
15 maybe. I don't know.|
|00:42:32||For the leads, you're saying?
Say somebody took them,|
|00:42:35||- went to Jerry Graff?
- Yeah. How many leads do we have?|
The premium leads?|
|00:42:39||I've got to think they've got 500.
Say 500 leads.|
|00:42:43||You're saying a fella could take
those leads and sell them to Graff?|
|00:42:46||The leads to Graff.
Yes. I was saying... yeah.|
|00:42:48||A guy could take...
like anything else, it seems to me,|
|00:42:51||that is negotiable,
a guy could sell them.|
|00:42:54||- How do you know he'd buy them?
- Because I worked for him.|
|00:42:57||- You didn't talk to him?
- No. What do you mean?|
|00:43:01||- Did I talk to him about this?
|00:43:03||Are you just talking about this,
or are we just talking about it?|
|00:43:05||- Just speaking about it.
- Speaking about it as an idea?|
- We're not actually talking about it.|
- Talking about it as a robbery.|
|00:43:13||As a robbery? No.|
|00:43:21||So all this...
you didn't actually call Graff?|
|00:43:23||- You didn't talk to him?
- Not actually, no.|
|00:43:26||- You didn't?
- No, not actually.|
|00:43:28||- Did you?
- What did I say?|
|00:43:30||- What did you say?
- I said, "Not actually."|
|00:43:32||Fuck you care, George?
We're just talking.|
|00:43:34||- We are?
|00:43:35||- Because it's a crime.
- Robbery. That's right.|
|00:43:41||It is a crime.|
|00:43:45||- It's also very safe.
- You're actually talking about this.|
|00:43:48||- That's right.
- You're going to steal the leads.|
|00:43:51||- Have I said that?
- Are you?|
|00:43:52||- Did I say that?
- Did you talk to Graff?|
|00:43:54||- What did I say?
- What did he say?|
|00:43:56||What did he say?|
|00:44:01||He'd buy them.|
|00:44:12||You're gonna steal...|
|00:44:14||you're gonna steal the Glengarry
leads and sell them to Graff?|
- What's he gonna pay?|
|00:44:21||He figures there's 500 leads,
let's say 10 bucks apiece,|
|00:44:24||- that's $2,500 each.
- That's right, George.|
|00:44:30||- You're saying me?
- No, you and me.|
|00:44:32||Yeah. That's exactly
what I'm saying. $2,500 apiece.|
|00:44:36||You and me for one night's work,
and a job with Graff|
|00:44:39||- working the premium leads.
- A job with Graff?|
|00:44:42||- Is that what I said?
- He'd give me a job?|
|00:44:44||He could take you on.
|00:45:10||I was dialing the direct line
to my daughter's room.|
|00:45:16||well, yeah, I'm sure she's asleep.
But... where's the duty nurse?|
|00:45:22||They canceled her...
well, let me talk...|
|00:45:25||who am I speaking to?|
|00:45:30||I'll have the money there
|00:45:34||It's a big decision,
|00:45:36||At times a guy
has got to make one.|
|00:45:39||It's a big decision
and it's a big reward.|
|00:45:41||$2,500 and a job, it's a big reward
for one night's work.|
|00:45:47||Sometimes a guy...|
|00:45:49||sometimes, a man
if he wants a reward...|
|00:45:52||That's absolutely right.|
|00:45:54||He'll do one thing,
one thing on one night.|
|00:45:56||That's absolutely right.
The thing is, it's got to be tonight.|
The leads ain't going to leave?|
|00:46:04||They bring those leads up,
wave them under your nose,|
|00:46:07||tomorrow they take them downtown,
parcel them out.|
|00:46:09||A guy wants those leads,
he's gonna have to get them tonight.|
|00:46:12||Tonight is the thing.
Talk about a chance.|
|00:46:15||It's when a chance
|00:46:16||You got to go
in there tonight.|
- I'm sorry?|
|00:46:21||You have to go in.
You have to get the leads.|
|00:46:23||- I do?
- It's not something for nothing.|
|00:46:26||I took you in on this.
You have to go. It's your thing.|
|00:46:30||I've made a deal with Graff.
I can't go in.|
|00:46:32||I've spoken out on this too much.
I've got a big mouth.|
|00:46:35||"The fucking leads," et cetera,
"the tight-ass company," blah, blah.|
|00:46:38||- They'll know when you go to Graff.
- What will they know?|
|00:46:42||That I stole the leads?
I didn't steal the leads.|
|00:46:44||I'm gonna go to the movies.
Then I'm gonna have a late drink|
|00:46:47||- at the Como Inn with a friend.
|00:46:50||You want me to break into the office
tonight and steal the leads?|
|00:46:54||- Oh, yes, George.
- What does that mean?|
|00:46:55||Listen to this. I have an alibi.
I'm going to the Como Inn.|
The place gets robbed,|
|00:47:03||they're going to come looking for me.
Why? Because I probably did it.|
|00:47:05||Let me ask you this...
are you going to turn me in?|
|00:47:08||What if you don't get caught?|
|00:47:10||They come to you,
are you going to turn me in?|
|00:47:11||- Why would they come to me?
- They're going to come to everybody.|
|00:47:13||- Why would I do it?
- You wouldn't, George.|
|00:47:15||That's why I'm talking to you now.
They come to you,|
|00:47:17||- are you going to turn me in?
|00:47:19||- Are you sure?
- Yeah, I'm sure.|
when they come to me,|
|00:47:26||if I have to go in there,
and if I get caught...|
|00:47:29||- they come to me...
- You don't have to go in.|
|00:47:32||I have to go in, see?
That's something I have to do.|
|00:47:36||Are you going to give me $7,500?|
|00:47:37||75? I thought we were
splitting five grand.|
|00:47:40||I lied, all right? Your end is 25,
my end is my own concern.|
|00:47:43||Now, stick with me here.
If they come to me,|
|00:47:46||I'm caught, they're going to ask me
who were accomplices.|
|00:47:52||To the law, you're
an accessory before the fact.|
|00:47:53||- I didn't ask to be.
- Tough luck, because you are.|
|00:47:56||- Because you told me about it?
- That's right.|
|00:47:59||Why are you doing this
to me, Dave?|
|00:48:02||Why are you talking this way to me?
I don't understand.|
|00:48:04||- Why are you doing this at all?
- None of your fucking business.|
|00:48:08||Just in or out?
You tell me.|
you take the consequences.|
|00:48:11||- I do?
- That's right.|
|00:48:13||- And why is that?
- Because you listened.|
|00:48:16||Well, when will
Mrs. Nyborg be back?|
|00:48:17||You know, I hate to keep
calling you this late, Bruce,|
|00:48:20||but I feel a responsibility,
I must say. When you have...|
|00:48:26||You know, they say,
"You don't buy it, you rent it."|
- The thing.|
what do you keep?|
|00:48:37||I mean, you don't keep
|00:48:45||- You know?
|00:48:47||It's just... you try
to stave off insecurity.|
|00:48:52||You can't do it.|
- No. That's what I'm telling you.|
|00:48:56||Stocks, bonds, objects of art,
real estate, what are they?|
To what? To make money?|
|00:49:05||Perhaps. To lose money?
|00:49:09||To indulge and to learn
about ourselves? Perhaps.|
|00:49:13||So fucking what?
What is it? They're an opportunity.|
|00:49:16||That's all they are.
They're an event.|
|00:49:19||A guy comes to you,
you make a call. You send in a card,|
|00:49:22||I have these properties
I would like for you to see.|
|00:49:25||What does this mean?
What do you want it to mean?|
|00:49:28||You see what I'm saying?|
|00:49:33||Things happen to you.|
|00:49:37||Glad I met you.|
|00:49:40||I'm glad I met you,
|00:49:43||I want to show you
|00:49:46||It may mean something to you,
it may not.|
|00:49:49||I don't know.
I don't know anymore.|
|00:49:54||What is that?
And maybe that's true.|
|00:50:03||And that's what I said.|
|00:50:07||But look at this.|
|00:50:09||What is this?
This is a piece of land.|
|00:50:14||Listen to what I'm going
to tell you now.|
|00:50:44||- What happened?
- Where do you work?|
|00:50:46||I work, yes.
I work here.|
|00:50:49||- What is it? What happened?
did they get the contracts?|
|00:51:05||All right, tell me.
Now. Tell me.|
|00:51:07||- They stole the contracts?
- Excuse me, sir.|
|00:51:09||- Did they get my contract?
- Excuse me, fella.|
|00:51:11||- Did they?
- Would you excuse us?|
|00:51:12||Don't fuck with me, fella.
I'm talking about a Cadillac car|
|00:51:14||- that you owe me.
- They didn't get your contract.|
|00:51:17||- I filed it before I left.
- They didn't get my contracts?|
|00:51:19||They got... excuse me.|
|00:51:23||Fuck, fuck, fuck!
|00:51:26||- Williamson, open the fucking door.
- Who are you?|
|00:51:29||- They didn't get the contracts.
- Did they?|
|00:51:31||They got... listen to me.
They got some of them.|
|00:51:34||- Some of them?
- Who told you?|
|00:51:37||Who told me?
Who told me we had a robbery?|
|00:51:40||We got a fucking board
up on the window.|
|00:51:42||Who is this? Yes.
Yes, I confess. I did it.|
|00:51:46||Now, leave me
a second here, please.|
|00:51:49||- Okay, now, talk to me.
- I'm still trying to sort it out.|
|00:51:51||- So far...
- Talk to me. Talk to me.|
|00:51:54||They got some
of the contracts?|
|00:51:57||Lingk. James Lingk,
which I closed last night.|
|00:52:00||- You closed it last night?
|00:52:02||- I filed it. It went down.
- You filed it?|
|00:52:06||- James Lingk?
|00:52:08||- It was sent downtown?
- Yes, all right?|
|00:52:10||I filed it last night.
It went to the bank.|
|00:52:12||- It went downtown, all right?
- You filed it?|
|00:52:15||Then I'm over the fucking top,
you owe me a Cadillac.|
|00:52:17||- I don't...
- I don't want to hear any shit.|
|00:52:20||I don't give a shit.
Lingk puts me over the top.|
|00:52:23||You filed it. It went downtown.
Now you owe me the car.|
|00:52:26||- The robbery makes difficult...
- Fuck you! You owe me the car!|
|00:52:29||See, 'cause this is how
we keep score, "bubby."|
|00:52:31||You told me, "Close thus,
and so you get the car."|
|00:52:35||- I got it.
- Would you excuse us, please?|
|00:52:38||You hear what I said?
Do you hear what I said?|
Your excuses are your own!|
|00:52:55||"Recontact James Lingk.|
|00:52:58||6:00 P.M. Morton Grove."
|00:53:01||When do you expect
|00:53:04||This is Ricky Roma
from last night.|
Just, just... wait a minute!|
|00:53:10||Just to say... to thank her
for a wonderful time.|
I'll call back later. Thank you.|
|00:53:16||They should check
if we're insured.|
|00:53:23||"10:00 P.M., Octavia."|
|00:53:26||Please don't leave.
I'm going to talk to you.|
|00:53:30||- What's your name?
- Are you talking to me?|
|00:53:32||- That's right.
- My name is Richard Roma.|
|00:53:47||I... you know,
they should be insured.|
|00:53:50||- What do you care?
- Then they wouldn't be so upset.|
- They wouldn't be so upset.|
|00:53:55||- Mitch and Murray.
- Yeah, you're right.|
How are you?|
|00:54:02||You mean the board?
You mean on the board?|
|00:54:10||I'm fucked on the board.
|00:54:14||My mind must be other places,
'cause I can't...|
You can't do what?|
|00:54:19||- I can't close them.
- Well, they're old.|
|00:54:22||Look, look at this shit
they're giving you. Huh?|
|00:54:26||- Yes, they are old.
- They're ancient.|
This shit's dead.|
|00:54:31||- It is dead.
- Waste of time.|
|00:54:32||- Yes. I'm no fucking good.
- Hey, fuck that shit, George.|
|00:54:37||You had a bad month.
You're a good man.|
|00:54:39||- I am?
- Yeah, you had a bad streak.|
|00:54:41||Look at this. 15 units, Mountain View,
the fucking things get stolen.|
|00:54:45||- He said he filed...
- He filed the big one.|
|00:54:49||He filed the guy from the bar
that I closed last night.|
|00:54:51||All the little ones,
I got to go back.|
|00:54:56||Can you believe this?
I got to go back and close again.|
|00:54:58||I mean, talk about
a fucking beat|
|00:55:01||that would sap anyone's... wait,
wait, wait. Where are the phones?|
|00:55:05||- They stole...
- They stole?|
|00:55:08||- What kind of an outfit is it...
- They stole the phones.|
|00:55:10||...when criminals come and they take...
they steal the phones?|
|00:55:13||They stole the leads.
They stole the phones,|
|00:55:15||they stole... aw, Christ.|
|00:55:18||What am I going
to do this month? Shit.|
|00:55:22||You think they're going to catch...
where are you going?|
|00:55:24||Down the street.|
|00:55:28||- Where are you going?
- To the... what do you fucking care?|
|00:55:33||- Aren't you going out today?
- With what, John? With what?|
|00:55:37||Well, answer me.
They stole the Glengarry leads.|
|00:55:40||- They stole Rio Rancho.
- I have stuff from last year's file.|
|00:55:44||Oh, oh, oh.
Your "nostalgia" file.|
|00:55:47||Oh, great. That's great,
'cause I don't...|
|00:55:50||- Do you want to go out today?
- I don't have to eat this month.|
Give them to me.|
|00:56:00||Fucking Mitch and Murray
are going to shit a...|
|00:56:04||What am I going
to do all month?|
|00:56:07||See, the thing
of it is,|
|00:56:09||is were the leads insured?
- Were the leads insured?|
|00:56:15||I don't know, why?|
|00:56:17||'Cause if they weren't,
I know Mitch and Murray...|
- They'll be upset.|
|00:56:28||He said we're all going
to have to talk to the guy.|
- The cop.|
|00:56:32||Great. We have to talk
to the cop.|
|00:56:34||- Another waste of time.
- A waste of time? Why?|
|00:56:38||Why? 'Cause they're not going
to find the guy.|
|00:56:40||- The cops?
- Yes, the cops. No.|
|00:56:44||The cops aren't going
to find the guy?|
- Why do you think so?|
|00:56:47||Why? Because they are stupid.
Where were you last night?|
|00:56:51||- Where were you?
- Where was I?|
- I was at home.|
|00:56:54||- Where were you?
- At home.|
|00:56:56||See? Were you the guy
who broke in?|
|00:56:58||- Was I?
- Then don't sweat it. You know why?|
- You have nothing to hide.|
|00:57:03||- When I talk to police, I get nervous.
- Yes, you know who doesn't?|
|00:57:06||- No. Who?
|00:57:09||I don't know
what I'm going to tell them.|
Always tell them the truth.|
|00:57:13||It's the easiest thing
|00:57:21||How am I going to make a living
on these deadbeats?|
|00:57:23||- Where did you get this from, a morgue?
- Look, I'm...|
|00:57:25||Come on. What's the point?
What's the fucking point?|
|00:57:28||I got to argue with you,
I got to knock heads with the cops,|
|00:57:31||I'm busting my balls
to sell your dirt|
money in the mattress.|
|00:57:36||I come back, you can't even
keep the contracts safe.|
|00:57:39||I got to go out...
fuck this shit.|
|00:57:41||I'm going to go out
and re-close last week's stuff.|
|00:57:43||No, the word from Murray
is leave them alone.|
|00:57:45||If he needs a new sig,
he'll go out himself.|
|00:57:47||- Murray's gonna go out?
- He'll be "president of the company|
|00:57:50||just in from out of town,"
|00:57:54||Okay, okay, okay.
Give me this shit.|
|00:57:57||- I'm giving you three leads.
- Three? I count two.|
|00:58:00||- There's three leads there.
- Patel? Fuck you.|
|00:58:02||Fucking Shiva handed
this guy a million dollars,|
|00:58:05||told him, "Sign the deal,"
he wouldn't sign.|
|00:58:07||And the god Vishnu, too,
into the bargain. Fuck you.|
|00:58:10||You know your business, I know mine.
Your business is being an asshole.|
|00:58:13||If I find out whose fucking cousin
you are, I'm gonna go to him|
|00:58:16||and figure out a way
to have your ass... fuck you!|
for the new leads.|
|00:58:27||Get the chalk!
Hey! Get the chalk!|
I did it... I closed 'em.|
|00:58:32||I closed the cocksucker.
Get the chalk.|
|00:58:34||Put me on the board, John.
Put me on the Cadillac board!|
pick up the fucking chalk.|
|00:58:41||- Rick... eight units, Mountain View.
- You sold eight Mountain View?|
|00:58:45||You bet your ass!
Who wants to go to lunch?|
|00:58:47||Who wants to go to lunch...
12 grand in my commission.|
magazine subscription leads.|
- Bruce and Harriett Nyborg.|
What the hell happened here?|
|00:59:01||Fuck! I had them
on River Glen.|
|00:59:03||- What happened?
- Somebody broke in.|
|00:59:05||- Eight units!
- Big deal... I broke a bad streak.|
|00:59:10||Shelly "The Machine" Levene.
|00:59:12||Thank you, George.
|00:59:14||- grab the phone, call Mitch.
- They took the phones.|
|00:59:18||They took the leads,
the cash, the contracts.|
|00:59:21||- We had a robbery.
|00:59:23||- Last night, this morning.
- They took the leads?|
|00:59:30||What? They beat you
with a rubber bat?|
|00:59:32||Cop couldn't find his dick
with two hands and a map.|
|00:59:35||Anybody who talks to this asshole
is a fucking asshole.|
|00:59:37||- You gonna turn state's?
- Fuck you, Ricky.|
|00:59:39||I ain't going out today.
I'm going home.|
|00:59:42||I'm going home because nothing's
|00:59:45||- Anybody talks to this guy...
- Guess what "The Machine" did.|
|00:59:47||- Fuck "The Machine."
- Mountain View, eight units.|
|00:59:50||Cop's got no right to talk to me
that way. I did not rob the place.|
|00:59:53||- Did you hear what I said?
- Yeah, he closed the deal.|
|00:59:59||- You did that?
|01:00:03||- Fuck you.
- Guess who?|
- Just now.|
|01:00:07||- Guess who?
- You just... this morning?|
and blah blah Nyborg.|
|01:00:12||- You did that?
- Yeah... $82,000.|
|01:00:16||- Those fucking deadbeats.
- My ass. I told 'em... listen to this.|
|01:00:20||- I don't want to hear your war stories.
- Fuck you, Dave.|
|01:00:23||I said, "You have to believe
|01:00:25||Give me a lead.
I'm going out. I'm getting out.|
|01:00:28||- Fuck the leads. I'm going home.
- "Fuck me, Bruce.|
|01:00:33||- You have to believe in yourself."
- We haven't got a lead.|
|01:00:34||- Why not?
- They took 'em.|
|01:00:37||They're fucking garbage, any case.
The whole goddamn...|
|01:00:40||"You look around, you say,
'This one has so-and-so. I got nothing.|
|01:00:43||But why? Why don't I get
|01:00:46||- Did they steal the contracts?
- What the fuck do you care?|
|01:00:48||What the fuck
is that supposed to mean?|
|01:00:50||Will you shut up?
I'm telling him something.|
|01:00:54||Could we get
|01:00:56||- How are you doing?
|01:01:01||Anybody's going out,
I could use some coffee.|
|01:01:05||- "You do get the opportunity."
- Fuck is that supposed to mean?|
|01:01:09||"You do get the opportunities.
You get 'em as I get 'em,|
|01:01:12||- as everybody gets 'em."
- I don't care they stole the contracts?|
|01:01:14||I got 'em in the kitchen,
eating their crumb cake...|
|01:01:16||- What does that mean?
- It means, Dave,|
|01:01:19||You haven't closed
a good one in a month.|
|01:01:21||None of my business,
you want to push me to answer you.|
|01:01:23||So you haven't got a contract
to get stolen and so forth.|
|01:01:26||You got a mean streak in you.
Shut the fuck up!|
|01:01:29||Ricky, you got a mean streak in you,
and what are you babbling about?|
|01:01:32||You bring that shit up...
on my volume?|
|01:01:34||If you were on a bad one and I
brought it up to you, you'd harbor it.|
|01:01:37||You'd harbor it a long while
and you'd be right.|
|01:01:40||- Who said "Fuck 'The Machine"'?
- Fuck "The Machine"?|
|01:01:42||Fuck "The Machine"?
Fuck "The Machine"!|
|01:01:45||What is this, courtesy class?
You're fucked, Rick.|
|01:01:48||Are you fucking nuts?
You're hot, so you think|
|01:01:51||- you're the ruler of this place.
- Wait a minute, Dave.|
|01:01:53||- Shut up!
|01:01:55||You want to decide who
should be dealt with how, is that it?|
|01:01:57||I come into the office today,
I get humiliated by some jag-off cop.|
|01:02:00||I get accused of...|
|01:02:02||I get shit thrown in my face because
you're top name on the board?|
|01:02:06||Is that what I did, Dave...
I humiliated you?|
|01:02:09||- Oh, my God, I'm sorry.
- Sitting on top of the world.|
|01:02:13||Sitting on top of the world...
everything's fucking peach fuzz.|
|01:02:15||I don't get a moment to spare
for some bust-out humanitarian|
|01:02:19||- down on his luck lately?
- Fuck you!|
|01:02:21||Fuck you, Dave...
you know you got a big mouth.|
|01:02:23||You make a close, this whole place
stinks with your farts for a week...|
|01:02:26||how much you just ingested.
Oh, what a big man you are!|
|01:02:30||"Let me buy you a pack of gum...
I'll show you how to chew it."|
|01:02:33||Your pal closes, and all that comes
out of your mouth is bile.|
|01:02:36||How fucked-up you are!|
|01:02:39||Who's my pal, Ricky? Hmm?
And what are you?|
|01:02:44||What are you, huh,
|01:02:48||What the fuck are you,
|01:02:50||What the fuck are you,
"Friend to the working man"?|
|01:02:57||You got the memory
of a fucking fly!|
|01:03:01||I never liked you,
|01:03:04||What is this,
your farewell speech?|
|01:03:07||- I'm going home.
- Your farewell to the troops?|
|01:03:09||I'm not going home.
I'm going to Wisconsin.|
|01:03:11||- Have a good trip.
- Aw, fuck you!|
|01:03:14||Fuck the lot of you!
Fuck you all!|
|01:03:21||You were saying?|
|01:03:28||Come on... you got 'em
in the kitchen,|
the stats spread out,|
|01:03:35||you can smell it.
Come on, snap out of it.|
|01:03:39||- You're eating her crumb cake.
- Oh yeah, I'm eating her crumb cake.|
|01:03:42||- How was it?
- From the store.|
|01:03:45||- Fuck her.
- "Bruce, Harriett...|
|01:03:48||we have to admit to ourselves
that we see that opportunity|
|01:03:52||and take it... and that's it."
Now, we just sit there.|
|01:03:55||- I got my pen out.
- "Always Be Closing."|
|01:03:57||God, that's what
I've been saying... the old ways.|
|01:04:00||Convert that motherfucker,
sell him, make him sign the check.|
|01:04:03||They got their money
in government bonds...|
|01:04:05||I said, "Fuck it... let's go
all the way, the whole route."|
|01:04:09||I take it and plat it out... eight units,
82 grand, and I say to them,|
|01:04:13||"This is now. This is that thing
that you have been dreaming of.|
|01:04:19||You are going to find
the suitcase on the train.|
|01:04:21||The man walks in the room,
that bag is filled with money.|
|01:04:24||Harriett, this is it, and Bruce...
I don't want to fuck around with you.|
|01:04:28||No, I don't. I don't want
to pussyfoot around.|
|01:04:31||You think you got to look back
on this thing? I do, too.|
|01:04:35||Now, I'm here to do good
for you and me... the both of us.|
|01:04:38||What is the point
of some interim position?|
|01:04:41||The only arrangement
I will accept is full investment.|
|01:04:45||And I mean it, that's it...
all eight units. Period."|
|01:04:48||Now I got the pen
in my hand, Rick... hey.|
|01:04:51||I turned that contract around...
that's eight units, 82 grand...|
|01:04:56||and I said,
"I want you to sign."|
|01:05:00||I sat there five minutes.|
|01:05:03||Then I sat 22 minutes
by that kitchen clock on the wall.|
|01:05:09||Ricky... not a word,
not a motion.|
|01:05:11||And what am I thinking?
"Is my arm getting tired?"|
|01:05:14||No. I did it.
Just like the old days,|
|01:05:17||like I used to,
like I was taught.|
|01:05:19||- I did it.
- Like you taught me.|
well, if I did, I'm glad.|
|01:05:24||No, what I did...
I locked on 'em.|
|01:05:26||I locked all on them...
nothing on me... on them.|
|01:05:29||And, oh God, I am holding
my last thought,|
|01:05:32||"Now is the time."|
It was great.|
|01:05:39||It was so fucking great.|
|01:05:42||It was like
they wilted all at once.|
- No gesture, nothing... just together.|
|01:05:49||Honest to God, they both
|01:05:54||And then he reached
and he took the pen and he signed,|
|01:05:58||passed it to her
and she signed.|
|01:06:00||It was solemn...
|01:06:02||I let it sit, and then I nodded.
I said, "Harriett, Bruce,"|
|01:06:07||then I pointed into the living room
to the sideboard.|
|01:06:10||I didn't know there was
a sideboard in there.|
|01:06:12||He went over,
he brought us back a drink...|
|01:06:14||little shot glasses
with a pretty design in 'em.|
|01:06:19||And we just toasted
|01:06:23||Great sale, Shelly.|
|01:06:29||Fuck! Send me out!
Give me leads!|
|01:06:32||- Williamson! Send me out!
|01:06:33||- The leads are coming.
- Get 'em to me.|
|01:06:36||I talked to Mitch and Murray
an hour ago. They're coming in.|
|01:06:38||- They're a bit upset over this.
- Did you tell 'em my sale?|
|01:06:41||How could I tell 'em your sale?
I didn't have a tele...|
|01:06:43||I'll tell 'em your sale
when they bring in the leads.|
|01:06:46||We had a little... you closed the deal,
you made a good sale. Fine.|
|01:06:49||- Better than a good sale.
- I have a lot of things on my mind.|
|01:06:52||They're coming and they're very upset.
I'm trying to make...|
|01:06:55||All I'm telling you is, you can tell
them it was a remarkably good sale.|
|01:06:58||The only thing remarkable
about it is who you made it to.|
|01:07:01||- What the fuck does that mean?
- If the sale sticks it'll be a miracle.|
|01:07:04||"If the sale sticks"?
Why shouldn't the sale stick?|
|01:07:07||Oh, fuck you!
You do not know your job.|
|01:07:11||Do you know that?
A man is his job!|
|01:07:13||You are fucked at yours.
You hear what I'm saying to you?|
|01:07:16||Your "End of the Month"
|01:07:18||you do not know how
to run this office.|
|01:07:20||You haven't got the sense.
You haven't got the balls.|
|01:07:22||Have you ever been on a sit?
Has this cocksucker been on a sit?|
|01:07:25||- Did you ever sit...
- If I were you, I would calm down.|
What are you gonna do, fire me?|
|01:07:30||Oh, oh, Rick, ooh.|
|01:07:32||- It's not impossible.
- Really? On an $80,000 day?|
|01:07:35||- It's not even noon yet.
- You closed 'em today?|
|01:07:38||I got up early this morning,
tracked 'em down, and closed it.|
|01:07:41||What I'm saying to you
is that things change.|
|01:07:44||That's where you fuck up.
You don't know. You can't look back.|
|01:07:48||You don't see who's coming.
Maybe it's someone new, huh?|
|01:07:52||Maybe it's someone else,
but you don't know...|
|01:07:54||you can't look back, because
you don't know your history!|
|01:07:57||When we were on Rio Rancho,
who was the top man, huh?|
two months, three months?|
|01:08:01||How about eight months,
for three years in a row!|
|01:08:04||Luck... was that it, John?
Or purloined fucking leads?|
|01:08:08||- It was talent!
|01:08:10||Door to door.
It's called "cold calling," John.|
|01:08:13||Shit, I don't even know their name.
They don't want to buy what I've got.|
|01:08:17||Soft sell... we were doing it
before we had a name for it.|
|01:08:20||- Am I right?
- You're right, you're right.|
|01:08:22||You wouldn't know, you cock...
he doesn't even know what a streak is.|
|01:08:26||What the hell are you?|
|01:08:28||You're a fucking secretary.
|01:08:31||That's my message to you...
fuck you, and kiss my ass.|
|01:08:34||If you don't like that, I go across
the street and speak to Jerry Graff.|
|01:08:38||Period. Fuck you.|
|01:08:40||Listen to me... you put me
on that fucking board,|
|01:08:43||and I want three
promising leads for today,|
|01:08:46||I don't want any bullshit,
and I want 'em close together,|
|01:08:49||because I am
going to close them all.|
|01:08:51||And that's all I have
to say to you.|
|01:08:56||He's right, Williamson.|
|01:09:01||I'm sorry, but it's wrong,
and you know whose fault it is?|
|01:09:05||Mitch and Murray.|
|01:09:09||To hell with him.
Let's get some lunch, huh, Rick?|
|01:09:12||The leads won't be
up here till later anyway.|
|01:09:14||You're a client. I just sold you
five waterfront Glengarry Farms.|
|01:09:17||I do this with my hair,
throw me the cue "Kenilworth."|
|01:09:20||- Which is it?
|01:09:23||I own the property.
My mother owns the property.|
|01:09:25||I put her into it.|
|01:09:27||You look on the plats
when you go home. You'll see...|
|01:09:31||A-3 through 10,
26 through 30.|
|01:09:33||- Take your time. If you still feel...
- I won't need more time, Rick.|
|01:09:37||- I've bought a lot of property.
- I've got to talk to you.|
|01:09:39||Jim, what are you
D. Ray Morton.|
|01:09:45||- I'm glad to meet you.
- I put Jim into Black Creek.|
|01:09:48||- Are you acquainted with...
- Black Creek? No.|
|01:09:51||- Ooh, in Florida!
|01:09:53||- I meant to speak to you about that.
- We'll do that this weekend.|
|01:09:56||My wife suggested
I look into it.|
|01:09:58||Beautiful rolling land...
I was telling Jim and Jinny.|
|01:10:01||Ray, I got to tell you something.
You eat in a lot of restaurants?|
|01:10:05||I know you do.
Ray is with American Express.|
|01:10:07||- Can I tell Jim what you do?
|01:10:09||Ray is the director of all
European sales and services...|
|01:10:13||what I'm saying is, you haven't had
a meal until you've tasted...|
|01:10:16||I was at the Lingks'...|
|01:10:18||what was that service feature
you were talking about?|
- "Home cooking."|
|01:10:22||- You had a tag phrase you used?
the monthly interview.|
|01:10:27||- The magazine!
|01:10:29||Is that something
I can talk about?|
|01:10:31||It won't be out until
the February issue, but go ahead.|
|01:10:35||- Are you sure?
- Go ahead.|
|01:10:37||Ray was eating at one of his
company men's homes in France.|
|01:10:40||- The man is French?
- No, but his wife is.|
|01:10:43||Ray, what time
do you have?|
- I got to get you on the plane.|
|01:10:49||- Didn't I say the 2:00?
- No, the 1:00.|
|01:10:51||Remember the 1:00... that's why
we couldn't talk till Kenilworth.|
|01:10:54||You're right, the 1:00...
|01:10:56||- A pleasure.
- I got to talk to you.|
|01:10:58||I got to run Ray to the airport.
Let's hustle... John!|
|01:11:01||Get on the phone to Pittsburgh,
American Express there, for Mr. Morton.|
|01:11:05||Tell them he's on the 1:00.
I'll see you.|
|01:11:08||Christ, I'm sorry
you came all the way in.|
|01:11:11||I'm running Ray to the airport.
You wait here and...|
|01:11:14||no, I can't. I'm meeting your man
at the bank.|
|01:11:17||I wish you'd have phoned!
Are you and Jinny going to be home?|
|01:11:21||- I don't know.
|01:11:24||- I'm sorry?
|01:11:26||Oh, God. Excuse me, Ray...
just a minute.|
|01:11:29||Jim, I told you who he is... the senior
vice-president of American Express.|
|01:11:33||His family owns 32 per...|
|01:11:35||over the past years, I have sold him...
I can't tell you the dollar amount...|
|01:11:39||but quite a lot of land.|
|01:11:42||I promised him five weeks ago that I
would go to the wife's birthday party|
|01:11:46||in Kenilworth tonight.
I have to go, you understand?|
|01:11:48||They treat me like a member
of the family. I have to go.|
|01:11:51||It's funny... you get a picture
of the corporation-type company man,|
this guy, I'll tell you.|
|01:11:58||We'll go to his house
|01:12:00||Let me see. Tomorrow.
I'm in L. A?|
|01:12:07||I'll take you to lunch.
Where would you like to eat?|
|01:12:09||- My wife...
|01:12:11||I can't talk now, Jim...
I'll call you tonight. Coming, Ray.|
|01:12:14||My wife said I have
to cancel the deal.|
|01:12:18||That's a common reaction, Jim,
and let me tell you what it is.|
|01:12:21||That's why you married her.
One of the reasons is prudence.|
|01:12:24||No, it's a sizable investment.
One thinks twice.|
|01:12:27||It's also something women have.
Reaction to the size of the investment.|
|01:12:32||Monday, you invite me
to dinner again...|
|01:12:34||- This woman can cook.
- I'm sure she can.|
|01:12:36||We are going to talk.
I want to tell you something.|
|01:12:39||Something about your acreage
I want you to know.|
|01:12:42||I can't talk about it here,
I really shouldn't, and by law...|
|01:12:46||the man next to you...
bought his lot at 42...|
|01:12:50||phoned to say
he already had an offer.|
- I'm coming.|
|01:12:54||Ray, what a day.
I'll call you this evening.|
|01:12:57||I'm sorry you had to come
all the way in. Monday lunch.|
|01:13:00||- We have to go.
|01:13:02||She called the consumer...
the attorney general?|
|01:13:05||- They said we have three days.
- Who'd she call?|
|01:13:08||The attorney ge...
it was some consumer office.|
|01:13:12||Why'd she do that, Jim?|
|01:13:15||I don't know.|
|01:13:16||But they said
we have three days.|
we got three days, yeah.|
|01:13:24||- To... you know.
- No, I don't know.|
|01:13:28||- Tell me.
- To change our minds.|
|01:13:31||Of course you have...
|01:13:34||So we can't talk Monday.|
you saw my book.|
|01:13:40||Jim, Jim... I can't.|
|01:13:42||You saw my book.
|01:13:44||We have to before Monday
to get our money back.|
|01:13:46||Three business days,
|01:13:48||- Three business days.
- Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.|
|01:13:51||- I don't understand.
- That's what they are, three business...|
|01:13:54||if we wait till Monday,
my time limit runs out.|
|01:13:56||- You don't count Saturday.
- I'm not.|
|01:13:59||I'm saying you don't include
Saturday in the three days.|
|01:14:01||- It's not a business day.
- I am not counting it.|
|01:14:05||Wednesday, Thursday, Friday...
so it would have elapsed.|
|01:14:10||What would have elapsed?|
|01:14:12||If we wait till Monday
it would have elapsed!|
|01:14:13||- When did you write the check?
|01:14:16||- What was yesterday?
|01:14:17||- And when was that check cashed?
- I don't know.|
|01:14:21||What was the earliest
it could have been cashed?|
|01:14:23||- I don't know.
|01:14:27||Today. Which, in any case,
it was not...|
|01:14:30||there was something on the agreement
I wanted to go over with you.|
|01:14:33||It wasn't cashed?|
|01:14:35||I just phoned downtown...
it's on their desk.|
- One moment.|
|01:14:40||One point, in fact, of which
I spoke to you of which,|
|01:14:42||I can't talk to you
about it here.|
- Listen to me.|
|01:14:47||The statute is for your protection.
I have no complaint with that.|
|01:14:51||In fact, I was a member
of the board when we drafted it.|
|01:14:53||So quite the opposite.
|01:14:55||"You can change your mind
three 'working days'|
|01:14:58||from the time
the deal was closed."|
- Wait a second!|
|01:15:02||Which is not until
the check is cashed!|
|01:15:04||I'm through with this "meshugaas."
Nobody should talk to a man that way.|
|01:15:08||- How are you talking to me that way?
|01:15:10||- How can you talk to me that way?
- I'm gonna flag a cab.|
|01:15:13||- I didn't rob...
- Shelly, get in the office.|
|01:15:16||"Where were you last?"
Is anybody listening to me?|
|01:15:19||- Where's Moss?
- Is this Levene?|
|01:15:23||Perhaps I could assist you.
Excuse us, will you?|
|01:15:26||I work here! I didn't come in here
to be mistreated!|
|01:15:30||- Go to lunch, will you?
- That's why I came in to work today.|
|01:15:32||The leads come in,
I'll let you know.|
|01:15:34||- That's why I came in!
- Just go to lunch.|
|01:15:36||- I don't wanna go to lunch!
- Go to lunch, George.|
|01:15:39||Where does he get off
talking that way to a working man?|
|01:15:41||Take it outside. We have people
trying to do business.|
|01:15:43||That's what I came in here for.
That's what I'm trying to do!|
|01:15:45||- I meet Gestapo tactics.
- Excuse me.|
|01:15:48||I meet Gestapo tactics!|
|01:15:50||I meet Gestapo tactics.
That's not right.|
|01:15:52||No man has the right...
no man has the right...|
|01:15:58||"Call an attorney"...
that means you're under...|
|01:16:02||he says, "Cooperate
or we'll take you downtown."|
as long as I've...|
|01:16:06||Will you get out of here?|
|01:16:08||Will you get out of here?
|01:16:10||I'm trying to run an office here.
Now, will you go to lunch?|
|01:16:14||Go to lunch.
Will you go to lunch?|
|01:16:31||- Excuse me.
- Where did Moss?|
|01:16:34||- Excuse me, please?
- Did he go to the restaurant?|
excuse me, please?|
|01:16:43||I'm sorry, I...|
|01:16:47||I apologize to you. It's...|
|01:16:50||It's not me,
it's my wife.|
|01:16:55||What is it?|
|01:16:57||- I told you.
- Tell me again.|
|01:16:59||- What's going on here?
- Tell me again... your wife?|
|01:17:02||- I told you.
- Tell me again.|
|01:17:04||She wants her money back.|
|01:17:06||We're gonna speak to her.|
|01:17:08||No, she told me,
|01:17:11||- We're gonna speak to her, Jim.
- She won't listen.|
|01:17:15||She said if don't get my money back,
to call the state's attorney.|
This is something she said.|
|01:17:21||- We don't have to do that.
- She told me I have to.|
|01:17:23||- No, Jim.
- I do.|
|01:17:25||Listen, I do...
if I don't get my money back...|
I'm talking to you.|
|01:17:29||Listen... will someone
get this guy off my back, please?|
|01:17:33||- You have a problem?
- Yes, I have a problem!|
|01:17:36||Yes, I do, my friend.
It is not me|
|01:17:38||that ripped the joint off.
I'm doing business.|
|01:17:41||I will be with you
in a while, got it?|
|01:17:45||Where are you going?
Where are you going?|
|01:17:50||This is me!|
|01:17:52||Jim, this is
|01:17:57||Jim, anything you want,
you want it, you got it.|
This is me.|
|01:18:04||Something upset you.|
Sit down now.|
You tell me what it is,|
|01:18:13||am I gonna
help you fix it?|
right I am.|
|01:18:21||I'll tell you something,|
|01:18:24||sometimes we need
someone from outside.|
|01:18:32||Sit. Talk to me,
|01:18:38||I can't negotiate.|
|01:18:42||What does that mean?|
Say the words.|
|01:18:52||I don't have the power.|
|01:18:55||Okay, I said it.|
|01:18:57||- What power?
- To negotiate.|
|01:19:01||To negotiate what?|
|01:19:05||To negotiate what?|
|01:19:09||- What this?
- The deal.|
|01:19:13||Forget the deal, Jim.|
|01:19:15||You got something on your mind,
what is it?|
|01:19:23||I can't talk to you.|
|01:19:25||You met my wife.|
|01:19:33||I met your wife,
|01:19:44||Come on, let's go.
Let's go, let's go.|
|01:19:46||Get a drink,
|01:19:47||No, no, she told me
not to talk to you.|
|01:19:50||Come on, we're gonna
go around the corner.|
|01:19:52||We'll have a drink.
Who's gonna know?|
|01:19:53||She told me to get
the check back, otherwise...|
|01:19:55||Forget the deal, Jimmy.
Forget the deal.|
|01:19:57||The deal is dead.
You know me, the deal's dead.|
|01:20:01||Am I talking
about the deal?|
let's talk about you.|
|01:20:15||I'm gonna tell you
|01:20:18||Your life is your own.|
|01:20:22||You have a contract
with your wife,|
|01:20:24||you have certain things
you do jointly,|
|01:20:28||you have a bond there.
And there are other things,|
|01:20:31||and those things are yours.
You needn't feel ashamed.|
|01:20:37||You needn't feel
that you're being untrue|
|01:20:40||or that she would
abandon you if she knew.|
|01:20:44||This is your life.|
|01:20:57||Now, I want to talk to you
because you're obviously upset,|
|01:21:00||and that concerns me.|
come on, right now.|
|01:21:06||Let's go, come on.|
- The check, it's...|
|01:21:14||What did I tell you?|
|01:21:16||No, what did I tell you
about the three days?|
|01:21:18||Roma, would you?
I'd like to get some lunch.|
|01:21:21||I am talking with Mr. Lingk,
if you please.|
|01:21:25||I will be with you in a while.
Just check with Mr. Williamson.|
|01:21:29||- People downtown said...
- Call them again. Mr. Williamson!|
|01:21:35||Mr. Lingk and I
are going to go to the...|
|01:21:37||Oh, yes, please.
The police can be...|
|01:21:40||- What are the police doing here?
- It's nothing.|
|01:21:43||- What are the police doing here?
- We had a slight burglary last night.|
I was just assuring Mr. Lingk.|
|01:21:49||Mr. Lingk? James Lingk?
Your contract went out.|
|01:21:51||- Nothing to worry about.
- John, John...|
|01:21:53||- Your contract went out to the bank.
- You cashed my check?|
|01:21:55||- Mr. Williamson...
- The check was cashed.|
|01:21:57||The contract was filed
and deposited in the bank,|
|01:22:00||and we're completely insured
in any case, as you know.|
|01:22:02||- You cashed the check?
- Not to my knowledge, no.|
|01:22:06||- Though I'm sure we can...
- Not to my knowledge.|
|01:22:13||Don't follow me,
just don't follow me, okay?|
|01:22:18||I've let you down.
I know I've let you down.|
|01:22:20||I'm sorry, forgive me. I-I...|
I don't know anymore.|
|01:22:29||I... forgive me.|
|01:22:48||You stupid fucking cunt.|
I'm talking to you, shithead.|
|01:22:54||You just cost me
|01:22:57||$6,000, and one Cadillac.
|01:23:03||What are you gonna
do about it?|
|01:23:06||What are you
gonna do about it, asshole?|
|01:23:10||You're fucking shit.|
|01:23:12||Where did you
learn your trade,|
|01:23:15||you stupid fucking cunt,
|01:23:18||Who ever told you
that you could work with men?|
|01:23:22||Oh, I'm gonna have
your job, shithead.|
|01:23:24||I'm going downtown.
I'm gonna talk to Mitch and Murray.|
|01:23:27||I'm going to Lemkin!
I don't care whose nephew you are,|
|01:23:31||who you know,
whose dick you're sucking on,|
|01:23:34||you're going out.
I swear to you...|
let's get this done.|
|01:23:41||Anyone in this office
lives on his wits...|
|01:23:45||I'm gonna be with you
in a second.|
|01:23:50||What you're hired for
is to help us.|
|01:23:54||Does that seem
clear to you?|
|01:23:57||To help us!
Not to fuck us up!|
|01:24:02||To help men who are
going out there|
|01:24:05||to try to earn a living,
|01:24:09||You company man.|
|01:24:10||I'll tell you something else,
I hope you ripped the joint off.|
|01:24:14||I can tell our friend here something,
might help him to catch you.|
|01:24:22||You wanna learn
the first rule|
|01:24:24||you'd know if you ever
spent a day in your life?|
|01:24:28||You never open your mouth
till you know what the shot is.|
|01:24:35||You fucking child.|
|01:24:50||You are a shithead,
|01:24:55||Can't think on your feet,
you ought to keep your mouth closed.|
|01:24:58||Can you hear me?
I'm talking to you.|
|01:25:01||Yes, I hear you.|
|01:25:03||Ricky's right. Can't learn in an office,
gotta learn it in the street.|
|01:25:06||And you sure can't buy it,
you gotta live it.|
- "Mmmm," yeah!|
Because your partner depends...|
|01:25:14||I'm talking to you,
trying to tell you something!|
|01:25:16||- You are?
- Yeah, I am.|
|01:25:17||- What are you trying to tell me?
- What Roma was trying to tell you.|
|01:25:20||What I told you a long time ago.
You don't belong in this business.|
|01:25:23||You might listen to me.
One day you could say,|
|01:25:25||"Hey, maybe the guy..."
oh, fuck it.|
|01:25:27||Listen to me now.
Your partner depends on you.|
|01:25:30||The man who is your partner,
depends on you.|
|01:25:33||You go with him
and for him or you're shit!|
|01:25:36||You are shit...
you can't exist alone.|
|01:25:38||- Excuse me.
- "Excuse you," nothing!|
|01:25:40||You be as cold as you want.
You just fucked a good man|
|01:25:43||out of $6,000
and his goddamned bonus|
|01:25:45||because you didn't
know the shot.|
|01:25:48||You can do that and you're not
man enough to say it gets you?|
|01:25:50||I don't know what...
if you can't take something from that,|
|01:25:53||then you're... scum!
You're fucking white bread.|
|01:25:56||A child would know it,
|01:25:59||If you're gonna make something up,
be sure that it helps.|
Or keep your mouth shut.|
|01:26:05||I'm done with you.|
|01:26:21||How do you know
I made it up?|
|01:26:25||How do you know
I made it up?|
|01:26:28||What are you
talking about, huh?|
|01:26:33||You said, "Don't make something up
unless it's sure to help."|
|01:26:38||- How did you know I made it up?
- What are you talking about?|
|01:26:50||I told the customer his contract
had gone to the bank.|
|01:26:53||Yeah. Well, hadn't it?|
|01:26:59||No, it hadn't.|
|01:27:03||Don't fuck with me.|
|01:27:05||Don't fuck with me!
What are you getting at?|
|01:27:07||I'm saying this, Shelly...|
|01:27:13||usually I take
the contracts to the bank,|
|01:27:16||last night I didn't.|
|01:27:19||Last night I stayed home
with my kids.|
|01:27:24||How did you know that?|
|01:27:29||One night in a year,
I left a contract on my desk.|
|01:27:34||No one knew that but you.|
|01:27:37||Now, how did you know that?|
|01:27:39||You want to talk to me or you
want to talk to someone else?|
|01:27:43||Because this is my job!|
|01:27:44||This is my job on the line
and you are gonna talk to me!|
|01:27:48||Now how did you know
that contract was on my desk?|
|01:27:51||You are so full of shit!|
|01:27:54||- You robbed the office.
- Oh, sure, I robbed the office.|
|01:27:56||Oh sure! You asshole.|
|01:27:59||What did you do
with the leads?|
|01:28:01||You wanna go in there?
I tell him what I know,|
|01:28:03||he's gonna dig up something.
You got an alibi last night?|
|01:28:06||You better have one!
What did you do with the leads?|
|01:28:09||If you tell me what you did
with the leads, we can talk.|
|01:28:13||I don't know what the hell
you're talking about.|
|01:28:15||If you tell me where the leads are,
I won't turn you in.|
|01:28:18||If you don't, I'm gonna tell
the cop you stole them.|
|01:28:20||Mitch and Murray will see that you
go to jail, believe me, they will!|
|01:28:23||Now, where are the leads?|
|01:28:25||I'm walking in that door.
You got five seconds|
|01:28:27||- or you are going to jail!
- Go ahead.|
|01:28:29||I don't care,
|01:28:32||Where are the leads?|
|01:28:40||I sold them.|
|01:28:51||To Jerry Graff.|
|01:28:54||How much did you
get for them?|
|01:28:56||How much did
you get for them?|
|01:29:00||- I got half.
- Who got the other half?|
|01:29:03||Do I have to tell you?|
|01:29:12||Well, that was easy,
|01:29:14||- His idea.
- Was it?|
|01:29:16||I think he got
more than five, actually.|
- He told me my cut was 2500.|
|01:29:26||Wait a minute.
Okay... hey, hey, John!|
|01:29:28||Wait... okay, John!
Come here, come here.|
|01:29:41||I gotta tell you,
I'm ready to "do the Dutch."|
|01:29:43||I'm done. Moss gets me,
"Do this, we'll get well."|
|01:29:46||Why not? Big fucking deal.
I'm halfway hoping to get caught.|
|01:29:50||Hey... put me out of my misery.
It taught me something, John.|
|01:29:54||What it taught me...
you gotta get out there!|
|01:29:56||I'm not cut out to be a thief,
I'm cut out to be a salesman.|
|01:30:00||And I am back.
I got my balls back.|
|01:30:03||Now... you got a slight
advantage on me.|
|01:30:07||But whatever it takes, John,|
|01:30:10||to make things right,
we're gonna make it right.|
|01:30:12||We are going
to make it right.|
|01:30:18||I want to tell you
- You have a big mouth.|
|01:30:26||You've got a big mouth!|
|01:30:28||And now I'm gonna show you
an even bigger one.|
|01:30:31||Where are you going?|
|01:30:33||You can't do that!
You don't want to do that.|
|01:30:36||Wait, wait, wait,
|01:30:40||It's $2,500. Go ahead
and take it, take it all.|
|01:30:43||No, I don't think so.
I don't think I want your money.|
|01:30:46||I think you fucked up my office,
and I think you're going away.|
|01:30:49||Are you nuts?
I'm gonna close for you! Take...|
|01:30:53||I'm gonna make this office and be
number one on that board again.|
|01:31:05||This is what
we're gonna do... 20%.|
|01:31:09||I'm gonna give you 20%
of all my sales.|
|01:31:13||20%, as long as I'm
with this firm.|
|01:31:18||- 50% of all my sales.
- What sales?|
|01:31:22||What sales? My God,
I just closed 82 grand.|
|01:31:24||Are you out of your fucking mind?
I'm back! This is just the beginning!|
|01:31:28||Just the beginning?
Where have you been, Shelly?|
|01:31:30||Bruce and Harriett Nyborg...
do you want to see the memos?|
They used to call in every week...|
|01:31:37||when I was with Webb...
we were selling Arizona.|
|01:31:42||Did you see how they were living?
How can you delude yourself?|
|01:31:47||- I've got their check.
- Forget it. Frame it.|
|01:31:49||- It's worthless.
- The check is no good?|
|01:31:51||You want to stick around?
I'll pull the memo. I'm busy.|
|01:31:54||The check is no good?
|01:31:56||You want to call the bank?
I called them.|
|01:31:58||I called them four months ago
when we first got the lead.|
|01:32:01||The people are insane.|
|01:32:06||They just like talking
- I'm sorry.|
- Because I don't like you.|
|01:32:53||Guy couldn't find his fucking couch
in the living room.|
|01:32:59||What a day.|
|01:33:03||I haven't even had
a cup of coffee.|
|01:33:09||Jag-off John opens his mouth,
blows my Cadillac.|
it's not a world of men.|
|01:33:22||It is not
a world of men, "Machine."|
- It's a world of clock-watchers...|
|01:33:30||officeholders, what it is.|
|01:33:34||It's a fucked-up world.|
|01:33:38||No adventure to it.|
Yes, it is.|
|01:33:46||We're the members of a dying breed.
|01:33:50||that's why we got
to stick together. Shel?|
- I want to talk to you.|
|01:33:57||I've wanted to talk to you
for some time...|
|01:33:59||for a long time, actually.
I said, "The Machine"...|
|01:34:03||there's a man
I would work with.|
|01:34:06||There's..." you know,
I never said a word.|
|01:34:10||I don't know why I didn't.
I should've, I don't know why.|
|01:34:13||And that shit you were slinging
on my guy today...|
|01:34:17||that was so good.
|01:34:21||excuse me for saying this,
it's not even my place to say it.|
|01:34:24||That was admirable.|
|01:34:27||It was the old stuff.|
|01:34:30||Hey, I've been
on a hot streak.|
Things I can learn from you.|
|01:34:39||- You eat today?
|01:34:43||Want to swing around the Chinks'...
watch me eat, we'll talk?|
I'll stay around awhile.|
|01:34:49||Hello, Mrs. Schwartz?|
|01:34:51||This is Richard Roma
with Premiere Properties.|
|01:34:53||You or your accountant requested
information on a land investment|
|01:34:56||which would offer you
depreciation and the chance|
|01:34:58||of a substantial return
on a small investment.|
|01:35:01||I'm in from Florida
just for one day...|
|01:35:03||- Mr. Levene?
...so I only have that one lot left.|
|01:35:07||Would you come in here,
|01:35:09||I don't have too much time
and I'm on the midnight plane back,|
|01:35:12||so if you or your husband
are truly interested...|
|01:35:14||because I can't hold
this parcel past...|
|01:35:19||Well, what would be better
for you... say, 6:00 or 8:00?|
|01:35:24||Go ask him. Shel... we're gonna talk?
I'm going to the Chinks'.|
|01:35:28||When you're done, come down.
We're gonna smoke a cigarette.|
- Get in the room.|
|01:35:32||Hey. Hey, easy, pal.
That's "The Machine."|
|01:35:36||This is Shelly
"The Machine" Levene.|
|01:35:39||- Get in the goddamn room.
- Rick, I...|
|01:35:41||- I'll meet you at the restaurant.
|01:35:44||- Ricky can't help you.
- All I want is...|
|01:35:46||What do you want?
You want to what?|
|01:35:48||- Rick? Rick?
- Hello? Excellent.|
|01:35:58||Not at all...
thank you very much.|
|01:36:11||They find the guy
that broke in the office?|
|01:36:15||No. I don't know.|
|01:36:23||Did the leads
come in yet?|
I hate this job.|
|01:36:38||Anybody wants me,
I'm at the restaurant.|
|01:36:45||Hello, Mrs. Delgari?|
|01:36:48||Yes... you requested some information
about Rio Rancho Properties?|

|01:38:52||# When you're in love,
my, how they fly #|
|01:38:55||# Blue skies
smiling at me #|
|01:39:00||# Nothing but blue skies
do I see #|
|01:39:05||# In the morning
there's bluebirds #|
|01:39:07||# Singing a song #|
|01:39:11||# Nothing but, nothing but
bluebirds from now on #|
|01:39:15||# Let me tell you
I never saw the sun #|
|01:39:18||# Shining so bright #|
|01:39:20||# Never saw things
going so right #|
|01:39:22||# Noticing the days
hurrying by #|
|01:39:25||# When you're in love,
my how they fly #|
|01:39:28||# Blue days #|
|01:39:31||# All of them,
all of them gone #|
|01:39:34||# Nothing but blue skies
from now on #|
|01:39:39||# Nothing but blue skies
from now on #|
|01:39:44||# Nothing but blue skies
from now on #|
|01:39:50||# Now on #|
|01:39:53||# Nothing but blue skies. #|
