Keep it high.

Babe, you promised we

were gonna get away.

You know I want to. I can't.

Maybe in a couple years.

You're not gonna be

thankful when you're 50

and wasting your life in a cubicle.

You don't feel the same way, I see.

All right, badass.

Come on, you're the only

thing keeping me here.

Come on, I'm done

losing the rat race.

There are things I want in life and

my job helps me get those things.


Come on, keep it high.

You've never been there.

There's a calm that comes over you.

The water.

We could be the ones.

We could be the ones that got away.

And what about the mortgage?

I just refinanced.

And I have my student loans.

You know how important this job is.

It's a pleasure to be here.

Our first question...

Look it. Your real love's here.

You can box with him.

And we want jobs here in America.

You know he's the 38th

richest man in the world?

Yeah, well, if that's rich,

then I don't want to be rich.

Will you stop?

...really hard to get it down,

but our companies are

making huge profits.

And which have you become,

ignorant or apathetic?

I don't know and I don't care.

...only half cheaper

but maybe even a three quarter...

Oh, come on.

It was a joke.

A good one.

People trust our company

and what we do.

And I just hope that I

can always live up to it.

I believe I can because,

not knowingly,

I have never, ever done

anything that's been dishonest.

Left your key card on

your desk again?

I got you.


So, any plans for the 4th?

No plans. I'm just gonna

enjoy the holiday weekend.

Bet you can't wait

to get out of here.

No, working the double shift.

I can use the holiday pay.

Your kids all right?

Yeah, they're fine.

What's with the long face, then?

This is you.

- There you go.

- Okay.

If you need to talk, I'm here.

What's wrong?


Something terrible's happened.


This can't be easy to hear,

but they found Mike dead

this morning out front.



Apparently suicide.

He threw himself from

the top of the building.

- Oh, my God.

- I'm sorry.

You okay? I'm so sorry, Jane.

They already packed

all of Mike's stuff.

I can't believe they moved so fast.

What do you expect?


Can you gather around?

As soon as I heard the

very distressing news,

I wanted to be here in

person with you all

at this very difficult time.

We all have a huge hole

in our heart this morning.

Especially me.

Because not only was

Mike my employee...

he was also my friend.

We are like a family here

and we must all stick together.

As Winston Churchill said,

"Success is not final.

Failure is not fatal.

It's the courage to

continue that counts."

We will continue Mike's great work.

God bless you all.

God bless Mike.

Jane, a word.

Oh, of course.


How could a man...

It's interesting, isn't it?

This must have been the

last view that he had

before he jumped off the building.

Poor Mike.

You knew him well, didn't you?

Yes, sir.

What was his mindset?

That's just the thing.

I never thought Mike would be

capable of something like this.

Well, we never know

what we're capable of.

You know, it seems to me, Jane,

you are the ideal candidate

to take over Mike's position.

That hadn't even occurred to me.

Oh, please, don't be coy with me.

This is one great opportunity.

Does that excite you?

With all due respect, sir,

it's difficult to be excited

about anything right now.

Very well.

Remember, time waits for no man.

Oh, more good news.

- Hello?

- Jane, it's Pam.

Oh, my God. Pam, I am so sorry.

I don't know what to say.

I didn't know who else to call.

I just don't understand.

Mike would have never...

What can I do for you?

Mike has some photos on his

desk of him and the kids.

I just can't come to the

office and face everyone.

Do you mind getting

them for me, please?

I will grab every photo I see

and make sure you get

them right away.

I can bring them over to you,

too, if you want some company.

Pam, if there's anything

else that we can do,

me or Ray, please don't

hesitate to ask us.

We're here for you, okay?

Thank you, Jane.

Damn it, Colleen.

You can't just barge

in here like that.

I know, I'm sorry. I come in peace.

You've got to eat, babe.

- Jane.

- Thank you.

I'll eat it.

We have secrets between us now?

You're learning the game.

I didn't think he even liked Mike.

If you think Taft or anybody here

cares about anything but

their own job, you're nuts.

I want his job and he

wants Gault's job.

Did you know what

Mike was working on?

- What he was into?

- Into?

- Yeah.

- What was he into?

What is it you think we

do here, cure cancer?

I'm not quite sure what

you're getting at.

What is he doing?

Let me give you the same advice

I got when I started here.

The only way a woman is gonna

get ahead in this boys' club

is to keep her head down and be the

biggest b*tch on the block, period.

God, who said that?

You did.

My Lord.

This doesn't make sense.

Of all people...

You don't think Mike

was the suicidal type?

I don't know what

the suicidal type is,

but it wasn't Mike.

Then why'd he do it?

I found this taped to the

bottom of Mike's desk.

What is that?

Financial data

that implicates someone in this

company of major embezzlement.

The large pension securities accounts

have been completely depleted.

- The amount missing is staggering.

- Stop.
