"Spot-checks on....


Speaking of the merger,

are you rich and famous yet?

Congratulations in

advance on your promotion.


Dad, you got a e-mail.

I'm not a pain in the ass,

I'm being a lawyer.

There's a difference.

No more computer games, Matt,

it's time for school. Eliza, where are you?


You got a e-mail, Dad.

Matt's got toothpaste all over!


If you can't get them ready

for school, don't say you'll take care of it.

You're welcome.

Yeah, I'm here.

-And Liza needs a jacket.

I know. Liza!


A jacket doesn't go, Dad.


Matt, put on a sweatshirt.


That's for girls, a white sweatshirt.

Since when? Liza!

Dad, leave me alone.


Liza, I am the father.

When your father says put your jacket on,

you put your jacket on.

Ariel doesn't have a father.

She has two mothers.


That's interesting.

He's in a hotel with his secretary

patched in from New York...

...while I'm brushing the Cheerios

out of my file folders.

It's insanity.

Put your jacket on.


Put this on, sweetie.



You can take it off when you get to school.


When I say listen to Mom, listen to Mom.

Matt, did you pee?


I don't know why

you said you'd help me out...

...on a day like today,

with your promotion.


What's dad wearing around his neck?


You don't know what this is?

This is a tie.


Daddy's getting a promotion.

Dad, you got a e-mail.

Thanks. Let's go.

We're late.

Did you call about those

Disneyland tickets?

-With everything I have to do today?

-It's just one call.

Who are they for?

Mohammed Jafar.

He's foreman of the Malaysian plant.

You're the one person I know

who sucks up to the people below you.

Matt, don't kick the seat.

-What's that on your tie?

-Toothpaste. Let's go.

The one day you wear a tie,

it shouldn't look like a bib.

Hi, Cindy, what's up?

Garvin came by the office this morning?

About the promotion?

Matt, will you stop that?

He was surprised I was late?

What does that mean?

Did he say it in passing,

or like he really meant it?

I wonder why Garvin's coming by

the office at 8:
00 in the morning.

To congratulate you.

That's not like him.

He treats everyone like dirt.

Except the top guys.

Yeah. Except the top guys.

When this merger with Conley-White

goes through...

...and they spin off our division,

we're gonna be rich, Susan.

-We're already rich, if you ask me.

-No, I mean-- I mean really rich.

My grandmother used to have

this expression:

"Don't climb up there too close to God,

He might shake the tree."


Thanks for this morning.

Go! Go, go, go!




Smaller, faster, cheaper, better.

Yeah, heh.

Remember the first ones,

the way you lugged it around?

People were amazed. It was like

showing a Polaroid to a bushman.

Now, if it's bigger than a credit card,

it's too inconvenient.

Keeps you on your toes.

Eddie, it's Tom. Cindy said you called.

Sure, I can hang on.

How's the job search?

Did I tell you what they told me?

I was "surplussed."

Ever hear that word?

What's going on down there, Eddie?

What? That's crazy.

They should've said, "sodomized."

They're not gonna sell the Austin plant.

That's just a rumor floating around.

You don't see it coming. You go along,

and then one day there's no room.

Boom. No more room for you.

Smaller, faster, cheaper, better.

I won't mention names, I'm on a cellular.

No names. I'm just telling you,

it's not true. It's a rumor.

I was making 150 a year.

Big money. Boom.

It's probably what you make, huh?

One fifty?

Eddie, hang on.

Why don't you call Cindy...

...make an appointment?

I'll see if I can help out.

Eddie, they are not

gonna sell Austin.

If I'm telling you,

who else are you gonna believe?

Cindy. Pretty name.

Used to have fun with the girls.

Nowadays she probably wants your job.



Good morning.

-What did Garvin say? Want me to come up?

-He didn't say.

-He growled.


He was flirting. Did you get Arthur?

He's standing by on the DVL.

Lunch with Conley-White

got pushed up to noon.

We'll probably have those sandwiches

with the crusts cut off.

Their jaws were wired shut

at the same prep school.

-The merger's still going through?

-Why, you heard something?

No. Just, I....

What's that on your tie?

Garvin didn't say anything

about my promotion?

I thought you'd be in early today.

People from "Father of the Year"

haven't called?


-That's a joke.


Five seconds to Malaysia.

-Want me to close your door?

-Do I ever ask you to close my door?



Malaysian video linkup.

-Tom. You look, uh, frighteningly awake.

-What's wrong with Arcamax?

The drives are very slow. We're

getting seek times in the 140-160 range.

My guys think there's

a compatibility problem...

...between the controller chip

and the driver's software.

If it's the chip,

that puts us back a year.

The screen flickers. The current cuts

in and out. It's a design problem.

What do you mean? Every laptop

in the world's got the same design.

I sent you out some drives.

You should get them today.

This is bad, Arthur.

How could this happen?

Gonna bury it until the merger?

Don't you say anything.

Does anyone else know?

I'm a grave. What, are you kidding, Tom?

I still think, really, that Arcamax

will be a major, major hit.

I'll talk to you when I see the drives.

-Tom, did you get the macadamia nuts?

-Good night, Arthur.

They are so good.

He's off the phone. I gotta go.

Do you know a Meredith Johnson?

-Meredith? Yeah, years ago.

-She wanted to see you.

She's here for the lunch.

The entire company invited up

for this lunch?

Garvin brought the Operations Group

up with him.

Meredith is in Operations?

What should I tell her?

Bad day, in-laws in town?

I'm gonna see Lewyn about the 900s.

Get that worried look off your face.

If there was bad news,

Garvin would've sent Phil Blackburn.

Hey, Phil. You're not

coming to see me, are you?

-No. Why?

-Nothing. How are you?

Jesus. How are you, Tom?

You look all beat up.

I do?

You're letting it get to you. Don't.

It's Garvin, you can't take it personally.

Take what personally?

Look, maybe it's just a rumor.

What's a rumor?

I don't wanna spread rumors.

That's how these things get started.

-Talking about Austin?

-Who said Austin?

What am I missing?

I can't believe he didn't tell you.

He's so perverse.

Didn't tell me what?

-So how's Susan?

-Susan's good.

-How's Lonnie?


-Do you know she got tenure? Ha, ha.

-That's great.


Well, here's my stop.

I tried to explain to Garvin.

You know what he's like.

He's like a child.

F*** your feelings if they

get in the way of his big surprise.
