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:

It isn't me...

4.

LEVENE:

...it isn't you...? Who is it?

Who is this I'm talking to? I need

the leads...

WILLIAMSON:

...after the thirtieth...

LEVENE:

Bullshit the thirtieth, I don't get

on the board the thirtieth, they're

going to can my ass. I need the

leads. I need them now. Or I'm

gone, and you're going to miss me,

John, I swear to you.

WILLIAMSON:

Murray...

LEVENE:

...you talk to Murray...

WILLIAMSON:

I have. And my job is to marshal

those leads...

LEVENE:

Marshal the leads...marshal the

leads? What the fuck, what bus did

you get off of, we're here to

fucking sell. Fuck marshaling the

leads. What the fuck talk is that?

What the fuck talk is that? Where

did you learn that? In school?

(pause)

That's "talk," my friend, that's

"talk." Our job is to sell. I'm

the man to sell. I'm getting

garbage.

(pause)

You're giving it to me, and what

I'm saying is it's fucked.

WILLIAMSON:

You're saying that I'm fucked.
