Mr. Danielson?

He took my blanket!

Okay. Everybody calm down!

Calm down, everybody.

You'll get your blanket!

lt's mine! Legally, it's mine! lt's mine!

Nice, Evan. Really nice.

Evan, get help. Get help!

l don't need help!

What l need is my blanket!

- Man, you're crazy!

- l am not crazy! l want my goo-gaa!

l want my goo-gaa!

He wasn't always this way.

Once upon a time, he was a king.

The king of Somewhere.

Strong and powerful.

What l'm suggesting is that

you reallocate 8% of your equity

into international markets.

He protected his loyal subjects

and made them feel safe.

All right, are you looking at the charts?

Well, these are actually very

conservative projections. Yes they are.

But one day he left his Kingdom

and he got lost in the Land of Nowhere.

Something no one could

have ever imagined.

Imagine That

Everybody's upped their stocks...

I am here to taIk about finances,

Wall Street...

In Nowhere Land,

everybody wanted to be king,

or at Ieast they aII try to be.

Evan, it's Noah. I got a feather.

- You got a what?

- A feather.

lt was on my desk with a note attached.

- From Johnny Whitefeather?

- Yup.

What'd the note say?

"l'll be at your 9:00 a.m. See you

in there. Ain't nothing but a thing."

- Wow. Then the rumor must be true.

- What? What rumor?

- Stevens is cashing in.

- What?

- He's selling the company?

- He has to be.

His repIacement is gonna be me

or Johnny!

You're gonna get this job!

- Hey. Good morning!

- Good morning, Mr. Danielson.

- Good morning!

- Good morning, Mr. Danielson.

It was a very strange pIace.

...and they've narrowed it down

to our firm and two others.

And it is confirmed, Whitefeather is

gonna be in the meeting.

The King was reaIIy unhappy there.

He just couIdn't figure out why.

- Hey, Tod!

- What's up, Mr. D?

Take this down to graphics

and add it to my chart, all right?

- After l...

- Now.

- What about the...

- Hey, "now" now, man. What's up?

- How much are we paying that guy?

- He's an unpaid intern.

lt might be too much.

l think it was because he was

aIways working to protect his castIe

from those who wanted

to steal his crown.

Johnny Whitefeather.

Evan Danielson.

Fellow salmon swimming upstream.

- After you, sir.

- Thank you.

So those of us he left behind

went out into the land to rescue him.

Whip, l said l'd sit you down with

our two best financial managers.

Evan's been our number-one guy

for the last eight and a half years.

Johnny's been with us for 16 months,

but he's already

one of our top producers.

Either way, you'll be well taken care of

here at Smith/Stevens.

- Evan?

- Mr. Bryson.

You've made some

really sound investments,

but quite frankly, l think we can do

better. Let's see if you agree.

Evan Danielson's office.

Now, this will give you a solid base of

capital and a 9 to 11 % yield, annually.

Yeah, l understand. ls it...

His daughter?

Did you call her mother?

Because if l say it's urgent

and he's really, really...

The goo-gaa?

- Fantastic, Evan.

- Thank you, Tom.

- Johnny?

- Thank you, Tom. Whip.

Dave, Lee, Troy.

l see those looks of skepticism,

just like old man Stevens

the first week that he hired me.

Said to himself, "l hired an lndian.

Can he handle money?"

And how.

Hey, l really appreciate

you letting me contribute

a little piece of venison to your potlatch.


We're here under one sky.

All of us, under one sky.

Let's appreciate that.

One sky.

Evan Danielson,

that man over there is a seer.

Uses the whole eye.

But there is a difference between sight

and vision.
