I could hardly keep my hands

off you the other day.

You looked so delicious...

I wanted to eat you all up.

I'm naked, Ben.

I'm naked. I'm being so bad.

Perhaps you ought to spank me.

I picked up some olives for you, baby.

Some big...


juicy, pitted olives.

Pink pimientos.

You're not doing it to be successful,

to make some money.

You love all that, but you do

this because it's what you love.

It gets you up early, keeps you

up la te. You have an impact.

You have a sense of contribution.

And life is joyous.

Most people never find

their real drive.

They're making a living

instead of designing a life.

They don't know what they want,

don't tap into their drive...

or discover their capability.

But I get you to follow through

as much as I can...

by teasing and pushing and

getting you to take steps.

As you build one step on the day

before, on top of the next...

after 30 days,

you've made a huge change.

It's a great sense of pride.

I know where I've come from.

I started out in a little

4-inch-square apartment...

feeling sorry for myself,

thinking nothing could change...

feeling mad at the world and my past.

But I was able to change,

and that came from being unwilling...

to settle for that anymore.

I knew I was more than

what I was living...

mentally, emotionally

and spiritually.

And I was able to find my passion.

That's what most people haven't done.

They don't know what they want.

They don't discover

what they're capable of.

So that'll be all right, then.

We'll just have the choir practice...

I think next Sunday,

a little earlier.

Sandra, how's the

real-estate business?

Fine. Are you looking?

No, I couldn't begin to afford

the kind of houses you handle.

Neither can most of the people

we sell them to.

I brought your sheet music

and cookies.

For the fundraiser. Great!

Why don't you take them up to Ben?

It's Bach, your favorite.

He's such a master.



And thrust!

Iconage public relations

and advertising.

Iconage. How may I help you?

One moment, please.

Good morning, Mr. Dunmore.

Good morning.

Maybe for you.

Iconage, how may I help you?


Good morning, Peggy. Dear Peg.

You look like you fell off a truck.

Thank you.

You look like an angel.

The meeting started 15 minutes ago.


Only 15 minutes late? I wanted

to miss at least half an hour.

Hold still!

I live for your touch.

Get in there.

Don't puke on Mr. Bradley.

Will you marry me?

- I think you're already married.

- I am?

Oh, yeah. Right, I am. Maybe later.

Morning, everybody.

Sorry I'm late, sir.

Sorry, everyone. Sorry.

I got one of those electric...

Now that the entire

brain trust is present...

we can get down

to the business at hand.

Senator Lassiter.

Roy had the misfortune...

of being caught in a rather...

less than honorable

position last night.

You think his position was bad?

How'd you like to be the hooker

who sucked him off?

Thank you, Jake.

Kevin, can we get to the girl?

The girl was a guy.

We all saw the picture, right?

She had a five o'clock shadow, an

Adam's apple and a Semper Fi tattoo.

We got to float a distraction.

We got to position it

so that Joe Public...

doesn't know which ball

to keep his eye on.

Not unlike the senator.

What are the alternatives? Mike?

The senator was tipped to head

the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Kevin? How about...

"He's turning down the offer

to become baseball commissioner"?

- He's never even seen a game.

- Gary, what've you got?

What've you got, Gary?

Gary, what've you got?

Goddamn it!

We've got to find something
