Hi. Can I have a 7 and 7?

You look like an athlete.

I'm sorry?

You look athletic.

You know, like an athlete.

We're here

for a basketball game.

I knew that.

You don't see

too many girls in here.

Yeah. No, it's just

a close bar for me.

It's just... Close place

to get a drink, whatever.

Shh, shh.

Go get dressed, hon.

There's no school today.

- You don't got school today?

- It's Columbus Day.

Well, go get dressed

and wash your face.

Listen. I... I, uh...

I had a nice time.

Hey, do you, um...

Do you think I could get

a hundred dollars?

You wanna borrow

a hundred dollars?


You work at that place,

don't you?

- No.

- Yeah. You do.

No. It's just...

I could really use it.

Look, I don't got

that kind of money.

Well, why not?

Aren't you, like,

a ballplayer and all that?

Look, I'm sor...

I had a nice time.

You wanna get

something to eat?

Is he coming?

Look at this. You're gonna need

some new shoes, huh?


I'll take the dog out for you.

I'm gonna be late.

Almost forgot

about you, huh?

All right, let's...


Come on.



We'll go eat.

You know what you want?

Go ahead. Read it

and tell her what you want.

All right, we'll just have two of

the 2.99 breakfast specials.

That's scrambled?


- And coffee comes with

that, right? - Yeah.

- Do you have your

players card? - Oh, yeah.

Got ya.

This is nice, huh?

Well, I'm gonna

call a car.

And they can take you to Jenny's,

if that's what you want.


That'd be nice.

You get the day off.

Can I go get a pie?

They sell pie

at breakfast?

Well, I mean,

it's definitely a flood.

I know it's a flood,

but it's, you know,

not a natural one,

and that's...


Okay. Yeah.

Well, you're probably fine,

but I'm here if you change your mind.


There's no direct extension, but anybody

here can help you start a policy.


It's a call center.


- Hi. Sorry.

- Hold on a minute, will ya?

Max, um,

I was hoping that if... if, um,

Ted comes walking through here,

could you maybe

just tell him I'm around?

If I'm around, sure.

Actually, looks

like Ted needs you.

Yeah. Mm-hmm.

They're gonna use

the lot.

We can triple

the investment.


You wanted to see me?

We're getting a new

software package, okay?

Which means all of us are gonna

have to use the computers.

I'm just bringing everyone in in person to

see if there are any issues with that.

- Yeah, that sounds great.

- All right.

- So you got a big investment coming up?

- Yeah, what, on the phone?

You know the dirt lot

across the street?

They're gonna run

a gas line through it.

I know the guy

who's got the lease.

He doesn't know

anything about that.

We take over the lease,

we could triple it.

I always mean to invest.

You know,

you always hear about that.

"Invest for the future."


You want in?

I mean, we could maybe give you

a share for... 2,000.

- And I could triple it?

- That's what we're talking about.

But you gotta come in soon, by the end

of the week. We close on Friday.

Okay. I will.

Good. Give me your cell.

We'll work on the details later.

You know what? It's new, so I can never

remember the number.

- Look it up on the phone.

- I don't have it with me.

It's at home. I don't like to take

personal calls at work.

Hey, give it to me later.

This will be good.

- Yeah.

- Yeah. Shh.

Thought you

were going home.

Oh. Yeah.

I'm just waiting on a car.

How far are ya?

I can take ya.

Well, what about Ted?

I mean, don't you gotta work?

I'll take you, I'll come back.

Come on.
