but we all get fucked

if the actuals crash.

That old man

is going to sink us.

Soon as I have Baer-Grant's

P and L report in hand

I will be speed-dialing

Is that a promise? I'm sorry,

I'm not aware of that term.

Tuxedos, droning conversations.

I don't think so. No.

I'll send your regrets.

Honestly, why must I bother?

You don't have the

satisfaction of avoiding it.

Yes.

I have

I tried to assure him that you

were very busy... What's his name?

A Mr. Seymour Butts.

I'm sorry?

Cancel my lunch. Make a reservation at

the City Club for myself and Mr. Butts.

My usual table.

Maria, put the reservation

under my name.

You ready to order, sir?

No, I'm still waiting.

This was ice tea.

Conrad, what a surprise.

Happy birthday, Nickie.

Seymour Butts.

I'll never get tired

of that one.

That's why it's a classic.

This is a nice restaurant.

They gave me a free jacket.

I'm sure they're gonna

want it back.

I remember being here

a long time ago.

Yeah, I took you here once.

No. I used to buy crystal meth

off the maitre d'.

Oh, really?

In college.

Which college?

Touch.

Miss me?

As much as that's possible.

You look good.

So do you.

To think I was worried.

Worried about me?

How long has it been since

Mom's funeral? Two, three years?

I thought you quit.

I did.

It didn't take.

Well, you can't smoke here.

I'm with you.

It's illegal to smoke

in restaurants in California.

F*ck California.

How are you?

Couldn't be better.

Elizabeth?

We're divorced. She remarried a

pediatrician or a gynecologist,

or a pediatric gynecologist.

Lives in, uh, Sausalito.

That's too bad.

I liked her.

And what about you?

What, you don't keep

track of me anymore?

Not since family week

at rehab.

So what brings you

to town, Conrad?

Everything all right?

Yeah.

Need anything?

Nope.

Really?

No I don't need anything

from you. I just

found myself laying naked

on the beach near Ibiza,

and all of a sudden

it clicked.

October 12th.

Nickie's birthday.

October 11th.

Whatever.

This is for you.

You shouldn't have.

What do you get for the man

who has everything?

"Consumer Recreation

Services. "

Well, I do have golf clubs.

Call that number.

Why?

It'll make your life fun.

Fun?

You know what that is? You've

seen other people have it.

It's an entertainment

service.

An escort service?

A profound life experience.

Sorry.

I'll just...

No, that's all right.
