Yeah, I'm sorry..

Uh, dude.

Okay.

Listen, you know I love

I'd love to keep you and your

We're the shiz?

Yeah.

What's it gonna take?

You want me to send a vintage

Jaguar over to your house today?

I'll do it.

Um, s-sure. look, um...

I just think bottom line,

I can deliver a lot more value

for our shareholders.

I hope we haven't inconvenienced you.

I see you. I see this.

We appreciate your interest

in our little outfit,

but I think that's it.

Come on. That's it?

That's not it. What the f*ck happened?

Yo, hang on.

Hold up, hold up.

- You get the message?

- What?

I'm not letting you Neanderthals

in to rape my company.

Ever.

I'm sorry?

You're a bunch of bloated dinosaurs

who didn't even notice the monkeys

swinging by till yesterday.

Well, f*ck you, daddy's boy.

Hey, come on. Don't blow this up.

I got a track record from founding

one of the most exciting

new media brands in the world.

And what do you got?

Track marks from shooting junk?

Thanks for coming down.

It was great to meet you.

Sorry this isn't going to work out.

No, it's gonna work out.

No, it isn't.

Take care, dude.

F*ck. What the f*ck, Frank?

I...

How can we salvage this?

You still want to pursue this?

Yeah, of course I wanna pursue.

I wanna announce.

This is part of the whole thing.

This is the secret sauce.

Do we need to sweeten the offer?

You wanna bump the offer another point?

Do you wanna call your dad?

Do I wanna call my dad?

No, I don't wanna call my dad.

Do you wanna call your dad?

- No.

- No?

Do you wanna call your dad?

Does anybody wanna call their dad?

Okay, nobody wants to talk

to their f*cking dad.

So, we've started, so let's

buy this f*cking company.

I'm pushing the bid to 120. okay?

Okay.

How's it going?

Yeah, I'm right in the middle, Dad.

Did you close?

Yeah, it's okay.

We're not quite closed.

I'm going to 120.

So, that's good.

And are we still good

for the announcement?

Great, 'cause obviously

I'm soft floating

to, like, Frank and Rava,

and there's gossip getting soft floated.

By who?

Uh, by the ether.

I don't know.

Hey, hey, happy birthday,

you old geezer.

Look, it's exciting.

This is gonna be great for you, Dad.

Mm-hmm. I'm excited.
