Glengarry Glen Ross script
Synopsis: When an office full of New York City real estate salesmen is given the news that all but the top two will be fired at the end of the week, the atmosphere begins to heat up. Shelley Levene (Jack Lemmon), who has a sick daughter, does everything in his power to get better leads from his boss, John Williamson (Kevin Spacey), but to no avail. When his coworker Dave Moss (Ed Harris) comes up with a plan to steal the leads, things get complicated for the tough-talking salesmen.

WILLIAMSON:

Roma.

LEVENE:

Under him?

WILLIAMSON:

Moss.

LEVENE:

Bullshit. John. Bullshit. April,

September 1981. It's me. It isn't

fucking Moss. Due respect, he's an

order taker, John. He talks, he

talks a good game, look at the

board, and it's me, John, it's me...

WILLIAMSON:

Not lately it isn't.

LEVENE:

Lately kiss my ass lately. That

isn't how you build an org...talk,

talk to Murray. Talk to Mitch.

When we were on Peterson, who paid

for his fucking car? You talk to

him. The Seville...? He came in,

"You bought that for me Shelly."

Out of what? Cold calling. Nothing.

Sixty-five, when we were there,

with Glen Ross Farms? You call 'em

downtown. What was that? Luck?

That was "luck"? Bullshit, John.

You're burning my ass, I can't get

a fucking lead...you think that was

luck. My stats for those years?

Bullshit...over that period of

time...? Bullshit. It wasn't luck.

It was skill. You want to throw

that away, John...? You want to

throw that away?
