MARK:

They're all hard to get into. My friend

Eduardo made $300,000 betting on oil

futures last summer and he won't get in.

Money or the ability to make it doesn't

impress anybody around here. Everybody

can do that.

ERICA:

He made $300,000 in a summer?

MARK:

He likes meteorology.

ERICA:

You said it was oil futures.

MARK:

If you can predict the weather you can

predict the price of heating oil. You

asked me that because you think the final

club that's easiest to get into is the

one where I'll have the best chance,

ERICA:

(BEAT)

I've lost my place again.

MARK:

You asked me which one was the easiest to

get into because you think that's where I

have the best chance.

ERICA:

The one that's easiest to get into would

be the one where anybody had the best

chance.

S.

MARK:

I just think you asked--the placement of

where you asked the question--

ERICA:

I was honestly just asking. Okay? I was

asking just to ask. Mark, I'm not

speaking in code.

MARK:

Erica--

ERICA:

You're obsessed with the finals clubs.

You have finals clubs OCD and you need to

see someone about this who'll prescribe

some sort of medication. You don't care

if side effects may include blindness,

okay, just do it.
