This is Rick Dees.
If you want a song played,
call the radio station right now.
You park in an abandoned lot.
You attend the movie.
You come out to find that thieves
have ripped off your stereo.
This wouldn't have happened...
... if you'd purchased the
James Brown auto alarm! Listen!
scattering thieves near and far!
Get yours today!
What are you doing?
- Oh, never mind.
What time did you go home
last night, 3:
You look like you've been
in a plane crash.
- This may shock you, but humans sleep.
- I know, I know.
Gruen gave me a big project.
I think it's some kind of test.
Where's my depreciation schedule?
I've lost my deprec...
I think I have everything.
- How much time do I have?
- Four minutes.
- You should wind down.
- I'm getting something out of it.
You won't believe
what happened last night.
You worked on your presentation?
Not at all?
I had drinks at The Blue Dragon...
Don't tell me one of your sex stories.
- Bringing the embalmer tonight?
- She's not an embalmer. She does hair.
- No. I have a date with a gorgeous...
- In the parking lot of the club...
...I see this woman,
maybe 35, kind of classy.
I figure she's waiting for her car.
So, what the hell, I talk to her.
Turns out, she came in a limo. I say,
"I've never been in a limo before."
She stares at me for 30 seconds,
then says, "Let's take a ride."
In the limo, she pushes a button and
a wall's up between us and the driver.
She hits another button,
a sunroof opens.
Bar slides open.
She pours us vodka,
plays Sly and the Family Stone.
Next thing I know, we slide onto PCH.
Full moon, 2:
00 a. M,
vodka, limo, music.
And I'm thinking...
- I don't believe you.
- We start to kiss.
I slide my hand up her dress.
What do I find? Garter belt!
- All your women wear garter belts!
- So I tell her I want her...
...from behind, standing up,
with my head sticking out the sunroof.
We're going 60, my head's out
the roof, my hair's flying...
This didn't happen. There was
no limo, no woman, no sunroof...
I'm ashamed to know you. How do you
As you know by now, Yakamoto has
agreed to entrust the management...
...of all his personal
No small thanks
to the efforts of Harry Gruen.
I'm sure Mr. Yakamoto's
confidence in us...
...will increase with the lethal charm
you'll all exude tonight.
A word of caution.
He's very traditional.
Old-fashioned ideas about women.
Wives must follow certain rules.
Can't speak until spoken to, don't sit
until he does, all that crap.
...he keeps a stable of concubines
you wouldn't believe.
...this is a very old-world guy.
So watch yourselves, and keep
your wives away from the mai tais.
Okay, a few facts
about the man. Denny...
...show us Yakamoto's
holdings for '85.
Damn. Spreadsheets are still printing.
Machine's been down.
Okay, forget it.
Walter, let's have your report.
Yakamoto Worldwide has shown almost
Even in a disastrous third quarter...
...his fish oil conglomerate...
...bolstered his net worth
by some 27%.
Walter, you look like sh*t.
Where were you last night?
I was here until 3.
This is the money business.
Image is everything.
Look at you. This jacket is sh*t.
See, men like Yakamoto don't make
deals with the lint man, here.
- Now look at Denny. That's a suit.
- Armani, sir.Rate this script:2.0 / 1 vote
