- Thanks for comin'. Nice to see you.

- Why are we slouchin' ?

I don't have that much time.

The gates are gonna be open

between 11:
00 and midnight.

I got my guy on the gate.

You go right through, no fuss, no muss.

- What are you worryin' for ?

- Let me worry !

Where's the stuff, huh ?

That's a lot of toxic waste you got.

You got a problem, baby.

No, you got !

Just get it to Jersey and dump it !

- Dumpin' it's a federal rap.

I'm takin' all the chances.

- That's why we pay you !

All right, come on.

Where's the money ? Yo, the money.

Come on, come on,

come on, come on !

What is this, the tip ?

This the tip ?

- You deal with the E.P.A.

See what it costs you !

- Make sure you're there by 11:00.

Aaah !

What are you guys, crazy ?

You wanna blow up the goddamn joint ?

[ Jackhammers Pounding ]

You drive carefully.

I don't want you to hit anybody.

Oh, here we go,

into the tunnel of love.

All right, get over, get over.

Who's got the cards ?

[ Horns Honking ]

We collected 32,563 tolls

between the first and second rock.

[ Chattering,

Typewriters Clacking ]

Grace !

Grace, are you in there ?

Come back. Grace !

[ Horn Honking ]

I found this

under my bed.

You think you could be

a little less discreet ?

[ Laughing ]

I found this under my bed.

I'll see you after work.

Listen, when I return this,

I have somethin' to tell you.

If it is good news, why not get it now

and have a completely good day ?

As opposed to one filled

with apprehension and tension,

which can lead to other related

physical disorders and high anxiety.

No, I will tell you later,

Island Girl.

- Tell me now.

- No. I'll tell you tonight.

- Hey, Frankie, how's your load ?

- Mostly in my shorts.

- I need a pit stop, bad.

- Just hold it. We're behind schedule.

- [ Dog Barking ]

- [ Men Laughing ]

- Need some help with that bag ?

- Maybe you need some

other kind of help.

[ Man ]

Stuck-up b*tch !

[ Woman Shouting ]


[ Siren Wailing ]

[ Coughing ]

"Dear Mr. Thompson."

Thanks a lot.

"Thank you for your submission.

Regretfully, at this time, we--"

Are laughing our asses off that

you even wasted the stamps...

by sending us your play.

[ Keyboard Clicking ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Phone Ringing ]

[ Answering Machine ] Hi, it's Maddy.

I'm out. The machine is in.

[ Beeps ]

Maddy, hi. It's Kimberly.

I have this important audition, and I

told Claudio you'd take my shift today.

I did it for you

when you went to Bermuda. Bye !

- Got ya !

- [ Phone Ringing ]

Hi, it's Maddy.

I'm out. The machine is in.

[ Beeps ]

Maddy, it's David.

I feel really bad

about the way things ended up...

and I want you to give me

three more months, and I--

I promise I'll--

I promise I'll tell her.

[ Woman ]

Honey, you've got to cut the cake !

- [ David ] I'll be right in.

- Oh !

It's George's birthday,

and we're having a party,

and call me on Monday.

I-I-I love you.

Oh ! Oh !

Go !

Traffic report says the bridge

is backed up to Westchester.

Forget the bridge.

Take one of the tunnels.

# [ Electric Guitar ]

[ Man ]

The "Territory:

It's still out there.

The "Territory:

It's still out there.

- The "Territory: Beyond."

- It's still out there.

The "Territory:

It's still out there.

It's exhausting being me.

[ Everybody Laughing ]

- Now the question is,

what do we do with it ?

- Sales are down 12%.

Broadening our marketing target

from inner-city youth...

to the more affluent

off-road vehicle group--

I know that.

Give me something

I don't know.

We're gonna have to stack some

G.R.P.'s with this commercial,

no matter where we run it.

- Now, the test results are maxing out--

- Speak English, Elliot.

We wanna put it

on the Super Bowl, first quarter.

Super Bowl.

- That's a whole pile of money.

- It's time to gamble, Roy.

It's not like

we have any choice.

We'll buy 60 in the first quarter and

we'll do a cut-down 30 in the second.

You wanna gamble ?

Let's gamble.

Jonno, let's go.

- How are we doin' on time ?

- Traffic's a mess.

- But if we take the tunnel,

we'll just make it.

- Let's take the tunnel.

Come on, Cooper.

Okay. It's all over.

- We're gonna have

a nice day in the city.

- Good boy.

Whatever good that specialist does

is undone by the long drive in.

He hates riding in the car.

It puts him off for days.

We're not taking him back

to that quack in Colts Neck.

Look, Eleanor,

he's perfectly capable.

- We don't even know

what's wrong with the dog.

- Who knows him best ?

- Me or a complete stranger ?

Let's go this way.

- All right.

You know what I'd like to do ?

I'd like to go to Rumpelmayer's.

- Cooper loves their cherry-vanilla.

- That's a brilliant idea.

- What'd they get you for, man ?

- They got me for stealin'.

What you up here for ?

Cheating on your expense account ?

No, I sell cellular phones

with cloned numbers.

So, how much you get

from the register ?

- A hundred, two hundred.

- You use a gun ?

No, I used my looks.

Of course I used a gun !

I sell five to ten phones

a week for $500 apiece.

I don't use a gun.

Can you multiply ?

I ain't stupid, man.

I know my math.

If you so smart,

why you up in here ?

I guess I shouldn't have bought

that BMW for cash, huh ?

[ Horns Honking ]

[ Tires Squealing ]

[ Tires Skidding ]

- That's ridiculous !

- He's the top man in his field.

I wouldn't dismiss him lightly.
