from yesterday's close.

Thanks a lot.

I'm gonna walk.

maybe two.

I'm gonna sell every option

I can get, steal or invent.

- Did you see the way they were buying?

- Relax, Gabe.

The market doesn't close

for another hour. Excuse me.

jack, if Semco moves

one goddamn point up...

it's four million in margin

we're liable for.

It'll slide down. What about Bressler?

Didn't they position with us?

No? Sullivan?

It's like we got the goddamn clap

all of a sudden.

Whiskey, rocks, and a club soda.

- Hi. How you doin'?

- How are you?

Marcus will stand by us

if we lose a point or two.

He said he's thinking about it.

Semco's still trading.

- He said he didn't know.

- He said he didn't know?

jesus, that son of a bitch!

We started him.

He owes us!

Come on. Table.

So, the guy says to me, the horse

was gelded light. What do I know?

So, the guy says to me, the horse

was gelded light. What do I know?

He said the horse was gelded light.

I'm thinkin' to myself--

- Mr. Casey, telephone call.

- Thank you.

Excuse me.

Sam.

Thank you.

What about Marcus?

Okay, thank you.

Oh, God.

Oh, my God.

The buyout took place.

Semco just closed at 30.

Mom?

Dad?

- What is it, Son?

- Dad...

we've had some trouble.

See, we had this deal

that was goin', and...

we were sellin'

very heavily on margin.

We didn't expect

this buyout to happen...

- which, unfortunately, it did, and--

- How bad is it, Son?

Bad.

I lost it all.

Everything.

And you and Mom--your savings.

Oh,jesus.

Hey. We're Caseys.

We can take a punch, right?

There'll be other days, Son.

I was just gonna make a sandwich.

Nice roast beef,

salt and pepper, mayonnaise.

-join me?

- No. No, I can't. Thanks.

Come on. Your mother'll be

right back from the beauty parlor.

She'll be mad if you leave

without seeing her.

No, I got a taxi waitin',

and I got some other people--

I got some things-- I can't.

Don't you worry about us, Son.

You're gonna take a minute,

catch your breath, get right back.

- Right?

- Yeah, sure. Sure.

Won't change your mind?

No, I gotta go.

Here you go.

Thanks a lot.

Falcons leading six to nothing,

and it's the Wildcats'ball now...

on their own 20-yard line

as Norm Shuter, the quarterback...
