Show me the money!

Come on, that's bullshit!

Take five! What's wrong?

The take was perfect.

- "Show me the money"?

You stole that from Jerry Maguire!

- I was two when it came out.


Then say, "Show me the... cash."


That sucks even more!

That sucks even more than

this shitty movie, and this shitty set!

I know... I know you had a role

in some TV series...

Wait a second, I starred in

the biggest German TV series of all time!

Got it?

- And now you do student shorts

for 100 euros a day.

But you said 200!

That was before I knew

you were a little diva.

You filthy little...



Chris! Chris! Chris!



I'm responsible for this agency's

top ten kick-ass ad campaigns!

That's the way it is.

Remember the Volkswagen campaign?

That was me!

The Bitburger World Cup spot? Me!

But when it's time

to choose a creative director,

a job I've worked nine years for,

what do you do?

You give it to Gustav!

I'm so sick of this agency!

None of you

ever appreciated my creative vision.

Not one of you.

That's why

I'm going to say something to my bosses

from the bottom of my heart:

F*** you. F*** you all!

While you wasted your money

on whores and fast cars...

I'm talking to you, Alex.

I was saving my money.

Because I knew that someday

you'd stab me in the back.

And now I'll take my money

and open my own agency.

Then I'm going to crush you.

I'm going to pound you into the ground!

You're all dead!

Okay, that's enough.



I've had 12 years of Karate lessons.



Would you like to open

an investment account?

No thanks.

Are you sure?

Sometimes "no" can also mean "yes,"

or "yes, maybe."

Even though, in most cases,

"no" does mean "no."

Unless of course we were playing

some sort of exciting role game,

and we were tied to refrigerators,

for instance.

We'd have safe words

so we'd know that "no" means "yes."

Or that "chocolate pudding"

means "no,"

and "pickles" means "yes."

Do you want an account now?


Pardon me, would you like

to open an investment account?

If you say "pickles"

I'll staple your ears to your balls!

Perverted a**hole!




The kick has to come right from the hip.

That's right, from the hip.

- Hey, Chris. Over here.

I'll be right there, ladies.

I'll be right there.

Great job, girls!

On Thursday, I'll be even harder on you.

- The harder, the better.

How long are you going to play this game?

- Game?

Yeah, putting your hands on their hips,

their butts, their breasts...

Hey, I don't touch breasts.

At least not at work.

Come on, Chris.

You can't go on like this.

This is nothing. It's just a scratch.

That's not what the doctor said.

You can't renew your fighting license.

And your retina is in terrible condition.

A boxer can knock me out,

but not some stupid retina.

I don't need a retina.

I've still got eagle eyes.

That's disinfectant.

- I saw that.

I've still got women's boxing.

- Yeah,

until your six-pack turns into a beer keg

and your joints give out.

Do you think women are still

going to pay you to rook their hips?

I may be a little blind,

but I'm not dumb.

Let me show you something.

I hear you scared away another customer.

- I didn't scare her away,

I just don't like to con people

out of their money. It's immoral.

That's the business.

- Yes, according to Schumacher.

The guy's a slimebucket.

- A slimebucket?

He treats our customers like crap,

cheats on his wife,

and promotes his employees based on

breast size, not qualifications.

Thanks, Tobias.

- Sorry. You deserved your breasts...

I mean, your promotion.

Wanna grab a coffee sometime?

Where you're standing

will be the boxing ring.

The heart of it all.

The punching bags will go back there,

and the speed bags, you know?

And the lockers will go over there,

like in Mickey's Gym.

Mickey's Gym?

- From Rocky, with Sylvester Stallone.

The mats go over there,

with weights and a place to jump rope.

How can you afford all this?

- I've saved money all my life.

I invested my money really well,

and tomorrow

it's finally going to pay off.

I'll sign the contract,

and live my dream.

You dreamer.

What are you going to put down there?

- Oh, that'll be a sauna.

A sauna?

- Yeah. I'll show you.

I have to think

of my female clients too, after all.

Can't you think of me for a second?

- Yes, of course.

Can you spit that out, please?

- Oh yeah.

I'll chew it later.

- Chris?

Can we skip foreplay today?

- Okay.

I have to get home.

It's my husband's birthday.

Why is this door closed?

- Because of... flies.


- Yes.

Tiny little flies flying in and out,

the little rascals.


Do you know how many banks I supervise?

Nine. Nine banks.

I've got investment advisors shitting

heaps of money in eight of those banks.

But in the ninth bank,

the investment advisor is a real loser.

I mean an all-round loser.

Yeah, the guy doesn't even have friends.

And between us,

I think he's still a virgin.

Oh, God!

He sounds like a real zero.


I'm talking about you.

I've had lots of sex.

Heaps of sex.

Well, I mean not so much...

but I've got this problem...

with nudity.

I don't like being naked.

But I've set my sights on somebody,


I just don't want to rush her...

My father probably hired you
