It's unbelievable.

Everything all right here?

It's great.

You won't believe how difficult it was

for me to convince Larry

to come this weekend.

Mr. Thompson? Yes.

Have you taken some good pictures?

I think I have some dandies.

Excuse me.

Where are those 2 guys that you hired?

I suppose they finished

their work and they left.


Well, you can tell them that they're fired.

Speaking of that, why don't

you try a little of that

old-world charm that you're

so famous for on our guests?

I'm not running a charity organization.

I've always wanted to live near the water.

It's beautiful here, isn't it?

Yes, it is lovely.

How are you doing?

Fine. Charlie, right?


Good, Charlie.

What are you doing?

Trying to figure out what

everybody's doing here?

Here to buy land. What else?

Not everyone.

Our average is 1 out of 3 people

come along just for the ride.

You should be more careful who you invite.

We sure would like to,

but we get stuck with that

statistic no matter what.

What about this group?

Think you can figure out who'll

be the buyers and who aren't?

Not exactly.

But I think I've got you figured out.

Tell me.

Not only could you not afford a lot,

but I think you'd have a hell of a time

swinging for the boat ride.

Am I right?


Excuse me.

Have you had enough?

Enough what?

Party bullshit.

I know what you mean.

Why don't we take a look around?

See if this place is for real.

I don't think your wife would like that.

Uh, we have different interests.

I'm sure you do.

How about it?

Yes, Mr. Stratton is the vice president

of international management consultants.

I've worked for him about 20 years.

His personal executive secretary,

you understand.

It's quite a responsibility.

Cheap scotch. I think its all a come-on.
