You know, you ever heard

someone say that old expression,

"Everything happens for a reason"?

Well, I don't think that applies to me.

I mean, I spend every morning

rushing to work

trying to catch the same subway

to the same lousy job.

What's the reason for that?

See, I'm a researcher for one of the

biggest publishing houses in Chicago,

but where I really belong is in Creative.

The problem is, is my boss doesn't

know it yet, so I'm totally frustrated.

While my friend Paul keeps telling me,

"You gotta be optimistic.

You gotta be positive."

OK. OK. You know what?

Today is gonna be my lucky day.

Today is gonna be my...

- Aah!

- Oh! Wow!

Yeah, maybe its got a name

on it or something,

- Oh, come,,, What are you, nuts?

there for, like, a year?

I bet Taylor doesn't even know

you work there, I'd be pissed,

- Are you pissed? I'd be pissed,

- Yeah, I'm-I'm a little pissed,

You know, come to think of it,

I've never really seen you angry before,

Henderson, you ever

seen Tom really angry?

- No,

- All right, fine, So I don't get angry,

What is that, a bad thing?

It's, you know, you keep it bottled up

and then sooner or later,

you come into work and you mow

everyone down with one of those,,,

to know her if you just sit there?

It's Taylor's daughter, man, I can't just,,,

Paul, there is no way that she thought

that it was a wrestling magazine,

Oh, come on, Get over it, OK?

You're a little embarrassed,

It happens, OK?

Let me tell you something,

If I had a dime for every time

a gay naked magazine fell out of my,,,

I'm kidding, I'm kidding,

What? Paul!

No, But seriously,

so you're a little humiliated,

At least now we've established

that she knows who you are, right?

- I'm gonna have to leave the company,

- No, you're not,

Oh, God, There she is,

Oh, and I need to see the proofs

on Thailand immediately,

All right, What else have we got?

- Are you Tom?

- Yes,

- Mr, Taylor wants to see you,

- Oh,,, OK,


OK, you see? This is your chance, This

is fate, This is what I'm talking about,

It's about that new opening in Creative

and you're the man for the job,

You're gonna go in there and you're

gonna pitch him those book ideas,
