Car Dogs

Mark is the sales manager at Chamberlain Auto, the dealership that promises to do "Whatever It Takes" to put you in a new car. But on a scorching hot Saturday in the middle of the Phoenix summer, Mark has a chance to get his own dealership - and out from under the thumb of his father. Mark has to sell thirty-five cars by the end of the day. The question: Will Mark do whatever it takes - including betraying his sales team and himself - to get what he wants?

Available sales

to the showroom, please.


I know how people feel

about car salesmen.

Most of the time,

I completely understand.

You might not

believe this, but...

I can't tell you how much I wanna

build something different.

I know.

Honey, I know.

I hear you.

Woman, on telephone:

I really don't think you do.

No, I do. I'm...

Mark, please.

I really do.

Yeah? Okay, so?

Ashley, you're right.

I promise...

I've had this reservation

for a month.

You're absolutely right.

Yeah. Okay.

I just can't...

Then I'll

see you at 5:

No, I can't. I...

Who makes a reservation...

Can't we just

push it to tomorrow?

Mark, I need you to understand

what this feels like.

Uh, okay. Okay.

I understand.

I do. No, I do. I do.

But you need to

understand, too, okay?

I am under

a lot of pressure here.

I'm not just...

We've talked about this,

and you're the one who told me.

- Yes, I know.

- To the floor.

I know. I know.

Stop being a wimp, then.

I know, and I meant that.

Okay, but you need

to listen, all right?

You just...

No, understand.

You know him, all right?

You know my dad,

and he is killing me right now.

Today I have had to do

some things that...

That I'm not exactly proud of,

and I need you, okay?

I just need you on my team.

I need you on my team

for one day, please.

I've always been

on your team, mark.

You are the one

who's canceling on me.

You just don't get it!

Well, why don't you

explain it to me then?

Because I don't have time, okay?

Don't have time

on our anniversary?

No, I don't have time, because I'm

supposed to be on the floor, okay?

Because I have a number that I

have to hit by the end of the day,

and once I do hit that

number, I swear to god

everything is gonna be different

for you and me, okay?

I promise. And I'm

not only talking about

all the money that

I'm gonna bring home,

but about the time and attention

I'm gonna be able

to give our marriage,

our relationship, okay?



Boss, I got nothin'.

She's 70, right?


Then she sure as shit

didn't come down here

just to kick some tires,

now, did she?

100, 200, something,

anything, whatever it takes.

Available sales to the showroom.

Available sales to the showroom.


No problem.

Green pea.


Yeah, you.

My name's Tyler.

No, it's not.

It's green pea.

You get a name when you sell a car.

Who's training you?


Charlie, show Mr. Baldrich

to his new vehicle.


Zig Ziglar

just closed number 15,

and I hope that Roley

has a big band.

I like to wear my watches

nice and loose.

Hey, are you training this?

I'm facilitating his career.

Well, then please do so,

because I don't need him

standing on the showroom floor,

looking like a lost puppy

that can't find his mom.

Come on, Simba.

Let's go.

Hey! Mother-daughter

two-car deal.

Where we at?

They'll be here in an hour.

Better be, 'cause according

to this, you only have 3 1/2.

Where we at?

Well, Christian's make 15.

I just closed Caleb's for 16,

which means we

got about 3 1/2 hours

to sell another 19.

The good news?

You'll be lucky if that number

doesn't jump back up

to 20 or 21.

What? Why?

Yes, because Christian's

mother-daughter two-car deal

has yet to show.

Yeah, I know.

And Sharon's guy

from yesterday called.

Whoa. Wait, the guy that was

hitting on her all day?

Yes, him.


What did he call about?

What does he want?

He called her to tell 'em

he's on his way back in.

His way back in to do what?

Unwind. What the f*ck

do you think, mark?
