Peter and his gang of gym buddies think of ways to raise money, finally settling on winning a dodge ball tournament. White Goodman retaliates by creating his own dodge ball team to finish off Peter.

which is why I'm here.

- This place is in default?

- No. You're in foreclosure.

You were in default

when we sent you delinquency notices.

- I thought those were just warnings.

- They were warnings.

No one warned me. What happens now?

I make my payments out to somebody else?

You have 30 days to pay the balance

of your mortgage, or you lose your gym.

Perfect. What's the damage?

What do I owe you?


Personal cheque gonna be OK? Might have

to wait till the end of the month to cash her?

I do have to switch some funds. The charity

I like to work with is gonna take a hit.

Mr La Fleur, I can assure you

this is a very serious situation.


This is extremely serious, Mrs Veatch.

It's Ms. I'll need to review all of your financial

statements and assess any tax liabilities.


I don't know how you say "Ms" for "Mr",

but if there was a "Ms Mr",

I'm a Ms as well.

You do keep financial records?

Invoices, revenue reports, taxable income.

You kidding? I got a closet full of 'em.

I call 'em keepers.

- Problem is I've never really filed them.

- No kidding.

Just out of curiosity,

who would want to buy this place anyway?

Come on, squeeze it, squeeze it.

Yeah, come on, come on. Get it up.

One more, b*tch. One more, b*tch.

Yeah. Yeah.

- Now you're my b*tch.

- Yeah.

Yeah, baby.

Involuntary spasm.

Look at the show. Enjoy the show.

This a bad time? I could come back.

Looks like some real dude sweat going on.

Add three pounds to the scales in the

women's locker room before you go home.


I've got protein paste, carb laxative...

- Suffocated kumquat, perhaps?

- I'm trying to cut down on those.

- They're good. They are good.

- Know what you mean.

Walk with me.

Hey, Brianna.

Cellulite seminar tomorrow, 0600.

Nice job, Susie.

You call that a sit-up?

Don't slack, Trevor.

I'm watching you.

There's a good energy in the gym.

Let me guess why you're here, Pete.

Because I bought out

the second mortgage on your gym.

You've got 30 days to make $50,000,

or your gym becomes my gym.

I know we've had our differences...

Is that what you call

sleeping with three of my female trainers?

It was one night.

Or the strip-o-gram you sent me

for the Globo Gym one-year anniversary?

- It was meant to be congratulatory.

- It was also a man.

Let's not get hung up on details.

- We're both professionals.

- Really?

Last I heard, my gym makes money.

Yours doesn't.

My gym's worth over $4 million.

Your gym isn't worth four.

I have shareholders.

You haven't even got cupholders.

- Why would I want cupholders?

- The point is

Globo Gym is a beacon

of human physical perfection.
