Life of the Party

With suns and moons.

All over the place.

Tonight, tonight.

The world is wild and bright.

Going mad.

Shooting sparks into space.

Today, the world is

just an address.

To live in.

No better than all right.

But here you are.

And what was just a world

is a star...

Oh...

Don't do this to me.

The 8:
05 to

Manhattan-Penn Station.

...is now arriving.

Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

The one-mile relay.

That was our race.

Four guys, a million

raging hormones...

...eight legs, one heart...

...each of us killing ourselves

to bring it home.

The last runner had to make up.

...for all those precious seconds

the rest of us lost.

'cause we got distracted

by Lisa Fentner.

...in the bleachers...

with her mountainous chest

and fishnet thighs.

He didn't hold it against us.

He knew he couldn't

let us down...

...and he never did.

No matter how far behind

we were...

we had him.

We had the finisher.

All aboard!

I don't get it.

I mean, he was

this close.

Wrong shoes,

didn't you see?

He was wearing

fancy shoes.

He still has

the stuff.

Can you believe it?

After all this time?

I think he missed the train.

He'll be late for work.

I think everything else,

including the shoes...

...and the "stuff"...

...is irrelevant.

And that's why

you don't get invited.

...to any good parties.

What is your problem

with him lately?

I'm a realist.

No, you're a turkey.

Just 'cause he's got the stuff,

and you take out tonsils.

Orthopedists don't get much call

for tonsillectomies.

He quit.

People quit.

You really shouldn't eat that.

He had the wrong shoes.

However you want to see it.

Oh, I know what I saw...

...and he didn't just quit.

You missed the meeting.

We're going to be handling

the Luxor account together.

If you want to take

a moment, maybe...

And look this over.

Ah. Yeah.

Luxor. No problema.

You really don't

give a damn, do you?

About?

Oh, why we're here,

what we do, our job.

Maritime Insurance.

You know, Bertie...

...you grow up on

the Long Island Sound...

...anything "maritime" sounds good.

Thing is, they don't

mention that there.

won't be any

actual ships or water involved...

...so... Here I am,

landlocked on the tenth floor.

What are you doing? You're the

only person I know who still smokes.

An event very

inconvenient for me.

Ah...

You know what I think made

our country great, Bertie?

Broadway musicals.

Swear to God.

They took me when I was a kid,

our major outing from the burbs.

Oklahoma.

Where the wind comes

sweeping down the plain.

Oklahoma!

I mean, there's something

about those songs.

Lot of heart.

Lot of hope,

you know what I mean?

Don't worry,

Bertie...

I like girls.

Although,

I must admit...

...your eyes are

a particularly lovely.

...shade of blue.

Okay. It's "Bert. "

And you should put that out,

buy that gum...

...and get some work done.

Do you realize

I've been here.

...two years

less than you...

I'm a year younger...

I've already

been promoted twice.

You're losing it, pal.

In my opinion,

you've lost it.

And, just in case you thought

you were, or anything...

...you're not cool.

You do "Standing Tree"

position...

...not that.

I do this and

Standing Tree position.

Ta-da!

I told you how many times...

...a sleepy traveler

misses his destination.

Oh, shoot...

...heading up the East Coast

is not my destination.

There's hockey tonight.

My mother needs dinner.

Ooh, hey, what...

wh-what's this?

I see a president.

A geometrical shape.

Flowers.

Could it be?

Yes, it is.

Madison Square Garden.

Tonight:
Rangers, center ice.

You and your mom...
