are you all right?

Are you okay?

It's all right, baby.

This your wife?

Yes--yes, it is.

Ma'am, what are

you doing out here?

I--I don't know.

I was in bed.

I got up a couple of

hours ago and she was gone.

I was scared to death

something happened to you.

Sir, I'm calling paramedics.

Please, just help me

get her back home.

( dance music playing )

( phone ringing )



Freddie, what are

you doing here?

Isn't your wife

due any minute?

Yes, Mary's sister

flew in to be with her.

You know, I'd be a wreck if

I couldn't keep myself busy.

Look, I appreciate

your dedication

but I am personally gonna

kick your butt out of here.

Family first.

Got it.

But there's a problem with

our vendor in Spokane.

So, let Ray handle it.

Where is he?

Have you seen him

this morning?

Yeah, he's been

looking for you.

Uh, they're back

in the conference room

with the managers,

some kind of big meeting.



Hey, good morning.

You okay?

Everyone's waiting.

Elizabeth, it's only

five to nine.

The meeting was

called for 8:

No. No.

Maybe I should go back

to giving you a hard copy

of your schedule.

No--no--no, I've got this.

Um, is that Roth woman here?


Oh, God, speak of the devil.

Good morning.

Good morning,

Anne Marie, how are you?

I'm well.

Got a new offer.

Where do you find

all these suitors?

What can I say?

In this economy, your

company's very attractive.

So this is not

a merger proposition,

like the Keener Brothers?

The Keeners are

family owned, like you.

And a merger would've

been mutually beneficial.

I'm sorry you

turned them down.

And today's proposal?

An acquisition.

You don't care what

happens to us, do you?

As long as you get your


Mrs. Mitchell, there's a

great opportunity here.

I'm sure you'll find

many reasons

to say yes this time,

I know it.

- How long 'til we start?

- Two more minutes.

Thank you.

Oh, we're just

happy to be here.

Ray, I see you're

showing some samples

from our new collection?


I--I hope you can appreciate

the true quality of Wendy Blue.

Actually, um, Mrs. Mitchell,

uh, these aren't ours.

Pauline, can

I introduce my client?

Pauline Mitchell,

Chan Shi Huang.

( speaking foreign language )

Mr. Chan asks what you think

of the quality of his products?

Please, sit.


Mr. Chan, what higher

compliment could I give you

then to believe that these

were made by our company?

Well, since we're running late,

I'll get straight to the point.

Mr. Chan has assembled an

international investment group

and has prepared

a genuine opportunity

for the future of Wendy Blue.

Well, I've already

had a sneak peek and,

Mr. Chan, your offer is

very impressive,

but I should remind you,

as we consider this,

ours is an American company,

all American designs...

( speaking foreign language )

...all manufactured in

our factories in

Idaho and Kentucky--

Precisely why we are

here, Mrs. Mitchell.

We've done our homework.

Well, I just want Mr. Chan

to know that we have rejected

past offers for those

who thought

they could only

buy our reputation.

We're not interested

in selling the company,

only to see our product

outsourced abroad.

( speaking foreign language )

I made a promise

to my family that

I would not let that happen.

Mr. Chan's group is

prepared to purchase

at four times market value.



( speaking foreign language )

Mr. Chan admires greatly

the work and reputation

of your company, and he thinks
