Under him?




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...


Not lately it isn't.


Lately kiss my ass lately. That

isn't how you build an,

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 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?


It isn't me...
