Everything Must Go

Synopsis: After Nick is fired from his sales job, mostly because of his penchant for alcohol, he comes home and finds that his wife has kicked him and all of his stuff out of the house and onto the front lawn. He is pretty intent on just sitting in his chair, drinking beer, on the lawn. His cop friend, Frank Garcia, thinks he should at least pretend to have a yard sale to make it legal. He slowly starts making friends with a neighborhood kid who needs something to do, and a pregnant wife who has just moved in across the street, and Nick finds himself moving on and selling all his stuff.

Rule number one, know your products.

Okay, whether it's a PC or a piece of paper;

know how it works.

Number two, know your customers.

Learn everything you can about them.

Listen to what they want

and what they don't want.

Rule number three, go the extra yard, okay?

If you don't have the answer; find it.

It's that simple.

Okay, let's go get those numbers up.

- Hi, Nick.

- Hey, Gary.

- Solid presentation there.

- Thank you.

Same one you gave last month, right?

How'd it go in Houston?

Great. It went great.

- How's the wife?

- She's fine, thank you.

- Kids?

- Kids?

I don't have kids.

Oh, right. Yeah. You don't have kids.

So listen, Nick.

The company has decided to make a change.

My numbers are as solid

as they've ever been.

- It's not about numbers anymore.

- I've done everything the company

has asked me to do.

I promised that my drinking would be

under control, and it is.

Not in Denver, apparently.

I made this office into a major player

My record reflects that.

You want to talk about your record, Nick?

1998, one month paid leave

for alcohol counseling.

2000, another 30 days.

2001, accused of assault.

It was a softball game.

The guy was blocking the plate.

2003, DUl.

2005, destruction of corporate can

I've given 16 years of my life

to this company.

And the company has rewarded you

very well for your loyalty.

Mr. Goodson and the rest of the higher-ups

wanted you to have this

as a token of their appreciation.

You can keep the corporate car

until the end of the month.

You can keep your health benefits, too,

which is good.

Your files are all corporate property,

of course,

but you can take three file boxes with you

containing your personal items.

That should just about cover it.

And one of those cherry Slurpees, too.

- This guy. I don't know.

- I got it. I got it.

Hey, bro, I'll give you 10 bucks

for that twack right there.

Aren't you a little young

to be drinking beers?

Aren't you a little old to be drinking

that Slurpee there, gray balls?

Is that what they teach you in school,

little sh*t?


Hi. Are you in there?

If you are, can this happen another day?

Hi, it's Nick. Lm back.

I got your letter

I really want to talk to you, okay?

I'll just be getting some

of the stuff off the lawn

and getting it out of here

if that's all right with you.

When you're ready, we can talk.

And you probably already heard,

I lost my job today. So...

Okay, bye.

Oh, great.

Hey, Elliot. You're home early.

Well, benefit of being the boss, I guess.

You know, having all that stuff on your lawn

is gonna destroy your root system.

Yeah, I'm sorry about the mess.

- I'll have it cleaned up by tomorrow.

- Great.

Listen, Nick. You know me,

I try to keep out of people's way.

But if I'm honest,

I saw this coming a mile away.

Thanks for warning me.

No problem.

Come on.

I like your bumper stickers.

Right, I probably should have taken them off

before I hit Texas, right?

- Here, let me help you.

- Thank you.

I'm Nick. My wife Catherine

and I live across the street.


You can just put that in there

with the others.


So are you getting rid of your old stuff?

Yeah. Just a little spring cleaning.

- You a photographer?

- Yeah. Photography teacher.

- Really? Where do you teach?

- New York.

My husband...

Well, we are relocating for work.

I lived in Newark for two years.

Westchester County.

Well, welcome to Arizona.

Thank you.

Hey, could I ask you a favor?

Would you mind watching my stuff?

- I just need to run to the store real quick.

- Sure, yeah.

You know, no, I can't.
