I'm not gonna make excuses.

I asked for this.

All of it.

And I did it to become s

omeone else.

I wanted more.

We belong to a generation that watched

our future get stolen out from under us.

The American Dream our parents knew

has been hijacked by men

who are willing to lie, cheat and steal

to protect their wealth.

Used to be if you got good grades,

you got into the right school,

got the right job.

And after 15 years of hard work,

you get your name on the door.

But that world is gone.

People always tell you

be careful what you wish for.

I never believed them.

The lights always looked brighter

across the river.

Hey, come on!

Hey, I'm coming. Chill.

I'm paying extra for that?

Don't worry, it's covered, Scout.

- Nothing's covered, Dad.

- Where you going?

I'm going to the club with Kev.

- Which one?

- Why? You think you might know it?

Well, I have been known to frequent

discotheques in my heyday.

They don't call them that

anymore, but that's good.

Hey, don't let him smoke. He hides

cigars under that cushion there.

Don't smoke!

What's the matter? You jealous?

Oh, yes.

Club Rise, baby.

What took you so long?

Why don't you do yourself a favor

and lift the rope?

And how is that

doing me a favor?

Consider it an investment.

Come Monday, my boy and I

will be making so much money,

you'll be begging us to come back

to this flavor of the month of yours.

Look, no hipsters

and no virgins.


He's not a virgin.

I just watched him get laid outside.

I watched it,

I literally saw him get laid.

- Adam, come on.

- I saw him with my own eyes.

I'm going to be back.

Are you nervous yet?

Nervous? About what?

On Monday we pitch our product

to Nicolas freaking Wyatt, that's what.

Kevin, we've been working on that pitch

for four months. It's genius.

The only thing

I'm worried about is

who Wyatt's gonna fire

for not promoting us sooner.

How great is it gonna be

to pay our bills

and eat in the same month?

Oh, get ready

'cause it's happening.

You always say it's happening,

and then I end up paying for the cab.

This time's different.

This pitch,

it's gonna change our lives.

Promise you.

But I'm still paying for the cab, right?

- Yeah.

- Got you.

It's not me.


Yeah, I'll be right there.

Sir, can you turn around? We need

to go to Saint Joe's Hospital.

Adam, he's doing great.

He's up to his old tricks.

He's right through there.

We cleared out

the mucus, and he's fine.

But he must use

the oxygen more,

and he has to call us

at the onset of congestion.

- Yeah, he knows.

- Wants to do it his own way, huh?


- You can take him home.

- All right. Thanks.

As you can see, Mr. Cassidy,

the last two procedures

were not covered by insurance.

What do you mean?

I have extended coverage.

You did.

Wyatt Corp terminated it.

They can't do that. I have it.

I need to have it.

Unfortunately, they can.

A lot of our companies

are doing it now, cutbacks.

I don't have 40 grand.

We can help with a payment plan,

or a medical loan.

I'm really sorry.

Yeah. I'll figure something out.

We did everything we could.

We work for Wyatt Corp,

one of the top tech companies

on the planet.

When they hired us,

we were going to take over the world.

Six years in,

we were still just lowly cubicle drones,

watching our bosses take home

obscene bonuses...

...while we were stuck

with entry-level salaries.

We'd waited long enough.

It was our turn.

Our time to shine.

You all right?

Yeah. We're gonna kill it.

Yeah, well, if things go south,

just stay cool. All right?
