Get this on the Twix,

will you, Nell?

Chicken feed, Ralph I've said it once

I've said it a hundred times

I know, D.J.

Now, about Seattle...

Don't miss the meeting on the 23rd

I called the airport, Mr. Mulroney

The Boston plane is on time

Then I'd better be going

Can't keep these people waiting

How about the Henderson deal?

Wire them two million five

Take it or leave it

I wonder if you'd okay this, D.J.

Not another electronics company, Paul

[Snaps Fingers]

We can pick it up for a song And since

we've gone into plastics so heavily...

Plastic, toys, electronics

What next?

There's one thing you young fellas

seem to forget

We are in the lumber business

We started out in lumber

and lumber is still number one

Of course, D.J.

But if it'll make you happy,

go ahead and buy it

Well, thank you, sir

- Oh, not that one, Gregg The Rolls

- The Rolls? Right, sir

May I have your undivided attention

for 30 seconds, D.J.?

- Yes, Ralph

- I can't emphasize enough

the success of the Seattle deal

depends on your being there

I'll do my best to make it, but in case

I miss, you've got all the facts

That's not good enough They don't

want me or Logan or Winkler

They've been promised D.J. Mulroney

They want that 50,000 acres of timber

Now, that's our bait

- And don't you forget it

- Of course

But if you're not in Seattle,

the whole deal goes down the drain

I'll be there, Ralph

Now, will you please stop worrying?

Ah, there she is

As beautiful as the day

I first brought her home

Remember? We had just put together

that Saga tuck lumber deal

And all the profits went right into

this car I remember perfectly

Yeah Well, that was in the days

when I only had one million

Still had to impress people

- I'll be doing my own driving, Gregg

- Yes, sir

Special occasion I'm meeting

some very important people

You've only got a half an hour

to get to the airport

Don't worry I'll make it

I always do, don't I?

Five minutes early Why don't you run

your planes on time?

It was the tail wind, Mr. Mulroney

Well, it's very important that

I should be here to meet them

- We're very sorry

- Where are they? Where are they? Where...


- Hi, Grandfather

- Hi, Rodney

My goodness, but you've grown

And, Elizabeth...

Well, you look more like your mother

every time I see you

- How is she?

- Fine She told me to give you her love

- And Dad said he'll bring you

champagne from Paris - Good

That's the sort

of a son-in-law I like

Oh, how were these passengers?

Well behaved, I hope

The perfect travelers It was

a pleasure to have them with us

- Good-bye, Elizabeth

- Good-bye

Good-bye, Rodney

Where are we going, Grandfather?

Oh, I thought maybe we'd head up

the Redwood Highway

I used to take your mother there

when she was your age

Then we'll follow our noses

on up to Seattle


Can we go on the yacht?

I've got a new one now

4,000-horsepower diesel

Does 25 knots,

if she's pushed

- Oh, boy!

- Cost nearly a million dollars

Well, how come

if you're so rich

you drive a funny

old car like this?

"Funny old car"?

I tell you, young man, this is a fine

car You won't find its like anymore

- Well, it's certainly a pretty car

- Yes, but how fast does it go?

Oh, fast enough

to get us there

When I get a car,

it's going to be a Maserati

Oh, Rodney, you're always

talking so big

Oh, there's no harm

in that, son

When I was a young lad in Ireland, I always

dreamt of owning myself a jaunting car

A jaunting car?

Never heard of that make

Well, Rodney, my boy,

it was the Maserati of its time

Real cool Hot stuff

One horsepower

- One horsepower?

- Yes, sir

- Lunchtime

- Great

Where's the restaurant?

Right here I thought it'd be fun to have

our first meal together in the open air

- Look, Rodney

- "Mulroney Grove"

Grandfather, are these

wonderful trees all yours?

Every single one of them

Mine, yours, everybody's

What did you do, buy 'em?

All that sign means is

that I had the privilege of seeing

that they'll always be here

- just for people to look at?

- Exactly
