"Lightbulb" (original title)

Yes, now, you

pick out the collar.

You tell me which

one you want.

Which one? Which one?


I don't know if there's anything

here I could possibly use.

Mr. Webber?


Matt Reeder,

International Gifts.

Oh, right, right.

Yeah, how are you doing?


He's not

talking today.


You know, why don't you...

why don't you wait back in the stockroom.

Thank you.

Anything with fur?

- Ooh.

- That's gonna' hurt.


Is he a member?



I have a question for you.

Being an employee here, do you

get to play a lot of golf?

Yeah, that's

why I work here.


What's your handicap?


Me, too!

No, really?


Well, six-pack.

I'm a really good drinker.

That's corny.

I know, that's terrible.

What do you say we...

we hit some balls sometime?

I'll drive the cart around.

I can watch your stroke.


Uhh, Preston.


How are you, buddy?

You've got a great smile, man.

You must have a

good dental planner.

Sam Schooler.

How are you?

So, what do you got?

Now, the unique feature

of The Dreaming Dog Watch,

Mr. Webber, is the animation.

As the seconds tick by,

you can actually see what the dog

is dreaming about.


I'll be darned!

It's clever.


And if you look, you'll notice

the... all the animation.

We call it

The Frustrated Golfer's Watch.

And you can see all the

curse symbols after you get

a little back slice.


You know what I mean?

We've all been there.

I know I have.

It's priced right.

What rates you got?

n is just the

one for the moment.

But we are..

Oh, no, you see, Matt,

my customers would buy this

watch like crazy, okay?

Provided you had

their dog on it.

Oh, hold on.

Call me crazy,

maybe it's just me,

but aren't all your

members golfers?

Uhh, yeah.

And they all wear

watches, don't they?

Yeah, just

not novelty watches.

Ahh, gotcha'.

More of a Rolex crowd.

A lady with a Yorkie

is not going to buy a watch,

as cute as it is,

with a Lab on it.

Well, I know

what you mean...

You gotta' get

all the breeds, all right?

Yeah, see, I like to follow


the customer what they want.

You know what I'm saying?

Yeah, I gotta' go.

Careful now.

He jumps.

You're going to tell

me that this isn't quality?

That's exactly what I'm saying.

And I'm also saying that you,

you need to pick up

a book on salesmanship.

Yeah, well,

I wrote that book, buddy!



I see you're still at it.

First time I ever

double-crossed the governor.

What can I do for you?

You mind if I sat down?

There's been a lamp burning

in the window for you honey,

go ahead.

Oh, I jumped out that window

a long time ago...

You can hit your

head against the wall,

try every angle,

rack your brain,

and then one day, out of

the blue, you get an idea.

The big idea.

The one you've

been waiting for.

A chance to win.

I'm going to go to bed, honey.

I've got a six o'clock flight.

Being with Gina made me

want to do anything to win.

- Well, I can appreciate that, sir...

- I'm not here!

...but our accountant

has been super busy.

Mr. Bederman.


No, he's in a meeting.

Yes, sir.

All right.


It's here!

Brenda, you get a raise.



Ooh, is that it?

Yeah, Okay.

Where's Brenda?


Where's she at?

Hold my calls!



I always wanted to sell a million

of something. Let's see this!

I babied this one.

Calling Hong Kong all night,

faxing diagrams...

- ...back and forth.

- Come on, cut the shit!

Let's do this!

Let me see it!
