no matter where we run it.

- Now, the test results are maxing out--

- Speak English, Elliot.

We wanna put it

on the Super Bowl, first quarter.

Super Bowl.

- That's a whole pile of money.

- It's time to gamble, Roy.

It's not like

we have any choice.

We'll buy 60 in the first quarter and

we'll do a cut-down 30 in the second.

You wanna gamble ?

Let's gamble.

Jonno, let's go.

- How are we doin' on time ?

- Traffic's a mess.

- But if we take the tunnel,

we'll just make it.

- Let's take the tunnel.

Come on, Cooper.

Okay. It's all over.

- We're gonna have

a nice day in the city.

- Good boy.

Whatever good that specialist does

is undone by the long drive in.

He hates riding in the car.

It puts him off for days.

We're not taking him back

to that quack in Colts Neck.

Look, Eleanor,

he's perfectly capable.

- We don't even know

what's wrong with the dog.

- Who knows him best ?

- Me or a complete stranger ?

Let's go this way.

- All right.

You know what I'd like to do ?

I'd like to go to Rumpelmayer's.

- Cooper loves their cherry-vanilla.

- That's a brilliant idea.

- What'd they get you for, man ?

- They got me for stealin'.

What you up here for ?

Cheating on your expense account ?

No, I sell cellular phones

with cloned numbers.

So, how much you get

from the register ?

- A hundred, two hundred.

- You use a gun ?

No, I used my looks.

Of course I used a gun !

I sell five to ten phones

a week for $500 apiece.

I don't use a gun.

Can you multiply ?

I ain't stupid, man.

I know my math.

If you so smart,

why you up in here ?

I guess I shouldn't have bought

that BMW for cash, huh ?

[ Horns Honking ]

[ Tires Squealing ]

[ Tires Skidding ]

- That's ridiculous !

- He's the top man in his field.

I wouldn't dismiss him lightly.
