Fun with Dick and Jane

Synopsis: The day before Globodyne's stock tanks, a la Enron, and its pension fund evaporates, the corporation's CEO and CFO set up middle manager Dick Harper to be the public face of the disaster. Jobless, and with no savings, pension, or home equity, Dick and his wife Jane sink slowly into poverty. He looks for work (as do all former Globodyne executives); he even tries day labor with the relatives of their Mexican nanny. A foreclosure notice sends Dick and Jane over the edge into a life of blue-collar crime. Then, as things finally look up, the report of an looming indictment pushes Dick and Jane toward a denouement with the real criminals, the white-collar guys.

Globodyne is a consolidator

of media properties.

Globodyne is a consolidator of media

properties. Consolidator. Oh, no!

Globodyne's a consolidator of

media properties and data retrieval...

...with a focus in fiber-optic

content provision.

It's basically a synergy

of Web-based...

...and platform-based

UNIX-driven delivery systems.

Okay, I made that last part up.

We spent months on this trip.

I just assumed...

...that you knew you needed

a passport to get into Russia.

But if I should have told you,

then I'm really sorry, Mr. Fairbanks.

It's not my fault airport security

strip-searched you, Mr. Fairbanks.

I mean, maybe you shouldn't have

made that joke. You know?

Hon? Fire.

You know what, I'm gonna

load you up with drink coupons.

Blanca? Can you make this little man

something to eat?

Are you sure about this?

The trainer said it's just

a minor annoyance.

He said it just reminds him

to be a little less vocal.

- Hey, Dick.

- Morning, Joe.

That a new car?

It's the new Mercedes S500.

You can only special-order

these from Germany.

- How's it run?

- Well, it's a Mercedes.

Check this out.

Mercedes, on.

Yeah? Well, watch this.

Beemer, sit. Stay.

Play dead. Good boy.

That's cute, Dick. Mercedes, off.

"It has come to our attention

that certain departments...

...have begun to run into situations."

Situations.

The big boys want

to see you upstairs.

Which floor? Twentieth?

Twenty-sixth?

Thirty-second?

- Not the 51st?

- Yes.

Congratulations, Mr. Harper.

- Go ahead and wrap this up.

- Okay.

- How do I look?

- Great.

- Anything in my teeth?

- No.

I need a paper bag.

- Hey, Oz.

- Hey, Dick. Morning.

It is, isn't it? Sure is.

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

Hey, did you... ?

Did you hear about Bill?

- Oh, yeah. That's.... That's wild.

- Yeah.

Yeah. I wonder.... I wonder

who's gonna take his place.

That's the big mystery.

Yeah. Yeah.

- You getting off?

- Not this time, Oz.

Son of a bitch!

That's it.

Hello. I'm...

...Dick Harper, and I'm here

to see Jack McAllister.

Oh, well, that's him now, sorry.

He had to step out.

Dick.

Damn glad to finally see you

up here.

Hey, man.

- Frank Bascombe, CFO.

- Nice to meet you, Frank.

Nice to meet you.

Listen, Dick. Dick.

Jack's very sorry that he couldn't

be here to congratulate you.

Well, on becoming the new

VP of Communication.

Are you--?

- Holy.... Thank you.

- No, no, no.

But also, he wanted to invite you

to his house...

...for an orientation meeting

on Monday morning.

Dick? Ann's got the address.

All right. Sure, I'll get that.

Okay. Ann?

- Thanks.

- Sure.

And thank you...

...Frank.

Cool exit.

How do you like your eggs?

Pardon me!

Ours is an age

of unmeasured prosperity,

Oh, yeah.

- You know what?

- What?

You should quit your job.

- Quit my job?

- Yeah.

Do you even know what you're getting

paid? I mean, I can't quit my job.

Well, not specifically, but....

Bob got VP last month,

he's making 1 50 plus bonuses.

Come on, you wanna spend

more time with Billy.

Do it. Just-- Come on.

Do it. Do it. Quit your job.

We must never become

a winner-take-all society,

- You know what we should do?

- What?

We should have sex...

...on Saturday.

I'll buy candles.

I'll pick up the new Starbucks sampler

featuring Sade.

Oh, you animal.

That is gonna be so wild.

Yeah.

Thank you.

Just make yourself at home.

Right.

Dick.

Yeah. Mr. McAllister.

- Dick. Hey, call me Jack.

- Likewise.

With my name. Dick, I mean.

Man. Dick Harper.

Dick Harper.

Dick Harper playing the harp.

Harpo Marx playing the jew's-harp.
