You the one blowing it. How long

you think you can f*ck everybody?


Hold on right there. I've got a

very excellent reputation around

this town.


So how come you take two nice suits

of clothes from Harry and never get

his daughter on David Letterman?


Hell, I'm not an agent. I'm a



Mister, you're nothing!


Believe me, Valerie's on the

waiting list to audition. Harry's

got no complaints. He just let me

pick out this tie the other day.


That Harry's a damn fool!


Mario, please let me make this up

to you. How about I arrange for

the opening night party for this

new off-Broadway show I'm handling

-- to be held at your place with

local TV coverage on nine and

eleven? I mean I had it promised

to another client -- who actually

pays me money. But it isn't firmed

up yet. And I could throw it your

way. Maybe.


What is involved?


You'd toss in the buffet for say

seventy or eighty. The producers

would supply their own vino, of

course. I'd deliver you a

truckload of celebrities. And if

they like the food, they'll all

come back, naturally.


What celebrities?


You want Liza Minelli? An Oscar

winner. Or Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.?


Is he still alive?


I saw him last night going into the

Four Seasons. I'll bring you over

a whole VIP list when we come by

for dinner.


How come everybody wants to eat but

nobody wants to pay?


You can't think small like that.

Hey, you still feature musicians

Fridays and Saturdays?


At least they work for their meals.


What about Harry's daughter as an

extra added attraction? She'll

belt out five or six showtunes --

two sets a night -- and it won't

cost you a fucking nickel.
