You tell me what that is.

You stay right there. I'll be back.

- Hi, Bernice.

- Miss Olivia.

Hey, you be a good girl.

I'll see you after work.

- Okay.

- Bye-bye.


Bobby, get up.


Get out of here. Go on.

Go on. Get.

Look at you.

Hey, look at your friend there.

Ma, why didn't you even

wake me up?

I should body-slam him.

Hey, man, can...?

- Good morning, Donna.

- Good morning, Mr. Tinsdale.

- These are for you.

- Thank you.

- Have a nice day.


- David.

- Donna.

Drake, Gearson & Burke,

may I help you?

- What was that all about?

- No big deal.

- I thought you two were an item.

- She just couldn't cut it, that's all.

Yeah, right.

Sheila, good morning.

Have my presentation materials

come up from the mailroom?

- Not yet.

- Not yet? Call the mailroom.

How about the conference room?

Have they got chairs?

The audio-visual.

Have they set up the projector?

Waymon, will you relax?

I've taken care of everything.

This is the biggest deal

of my career.

I'm aware of that. Why do you think

I've been here since 6:30 this morning?

- Get going. Atwell is waiting.

- Thank you.

- Good luck.

- Won't need it.

Oh, are you okay?

Can I help you with something?

I fell for you, babe.

How about lunch this afternoon?

You've got to be kidding.

How about dinner tonight?

Okay, lunch tomorrow?

How about a frank right now?

Slice of pizza?

Well, well, well.

Hey, hey.

- What happened last night?

- Don't know about you...

...brothers like me

gotta work in the morning.

- You see I'm in the house.

- Yeah, but you late in the house.

- Hey, but I'm in here.

- I don't see how you do it, man.

Stay out all night long

and come in here and be up all day.

Me, I gotta be home by 12 midnight

if I gotta face Monroe in the morning.

Hey, as far as I'm concerned...

...Monroe can get the bozac,

you know what I'm saying?

Johnson, you wouldn't happen to be

just getting here at 9:15?

No, homey, I was on time.

You didn't see me.

I was back there getting busy.

What kind of fool

do you take me for?

- Well...

- Watch it.

I am not one of your tack-head cronies.

I'm the boss.

The head nigga in charge.

Now, you get

your late ass to work, pronto.

Don't forget that package

for Mr. Tinsdale.

It was supposed to be on his desk

first thing.

Guess who had to take the heat

over that?

But no more, Johnson.

No more.

- Homey don't play that.

- You watch too much TV, man.

No, I'm serious, man.

Monroe don't play no games.

Yeah, well, neither do I.

I'm tired of this punk sh*t, man.

I came here to be a real-estate broker,

not no damn mail boy.

- I'm moving up.

- Up where?

Upstairs. Land of suit and ties.

Power lunches,

more girls than you can stand.

I'm getting paid in full.

Waymon Tinsdale's supposed

to help you get there?

- That's right. Because that's my boy.

- Your boy? Man, don't make me laugh.

Your boy

was supposed to help you...

...get in that training program

two years ago.

You ain't

but a late-in-the-house dreamer.

- You ain't going nowhere.

- Yeah, that's what you think.

Boy just don't know

when he got it good, do he?

Gentlemen, real estate

in New York City is at an all-time low.

Overbuilding and the soft economy...

...have caused a record number

of foreclosures... New York in the last year.

Now, the good news

is that the opportunities for cash buyers...

...with the ability to wait out

this temporary market correction...

...never been better.

Gentlemen, if you please.

We believe the Savoy Tower property... the most spectacular opportunity
