Go! Go! Go! Move!



This is yet another liberal attack on our values,

our families and on our way of life.

On the subject of gay marriage,

remember this, people.

This is not about the union of

two people of the same sex.

This, this is clearly the work of liberal judges

who are trying to force their will

on you, the American people.

Society at large is better served

by maintaining the sacred tradition of marriage.

As in a man and a woman joined

together by holy matrimony.

The people know it. You know it.

And I know it. This is Jim O'Bannon reporting.

Good night, everybody, and thanks

for watching The O'Bannon Files.


Arbor's gone, sir.

Missed his assignment in Seattle.

What happened? I'm not sure what happened.

He just vanished.

So the guy doesn't complete his assignment,

and you have no f***ing idea where he is.

This is unacceptable.

Do you understand?

I understand. I'm gonna make it right.

I have Senate Oversight all over my ass.

And I'm meeting with the director tonight.

The last thing I need is a failed assignment

by a rogue agent who disappeared

and didn't follow orders.

He is your man. He is your responsibility.

Find him and fix it.

Yes, sir. Consider it done.

Good morning. How are you?

Good. Excellent.

This is Allan Campbell.

Hello, Allan. Do you know who this is?

Uh... No...

You're forgetting me already, Allan?

Listen, you know,

like I said, I'll...

I'll get you the money.

It's just a matter of time.

Well, that's great. Can you do it today?

No, no, no. Actually, I have a promotion today.

And after that happens, then I got it all covered.

The next time I see you, you better have my money.

Yeah, no, I understand. And I appreciate it.

Congrats on your career.


Oh, sh*t. F***.

Sh*t. God damn it.

You all right?


Nicely done.

That's a good look. Don't laugh at me, Drew. Come on.

What happened to your eye anyway?

My eye's fine.

Just let me... Let me have your shirt, please.


Just let me have your shirt.

I'm not gonna give you my shirt.

I can't go in to Gates like this.

You shouldn't have spilled coffee on it then.

Okay, well, I did.

And now I need your shirt, please.

Just... All right. All right.

Spill anything on your pants? You

want me to give you those, too?

Come on. Stop being like that.

Hey, everybody, I made it. Just kidding.

Big day, huh? Everybody pretty excited about it?

Hey, Allan made it.



happened with your eye, bud?

Nothing, man. I'm okay.

Yeah? Mmm-hmm.

I'm fine. Nothing, huh?

Doesn't look like nothing to me.

You got a new tie there, huh?

Classy. Gray. Didn't know that

was the new power color.

Strong choice. Thanks.

Mr. Gates.

Okay, fellas, we all have a lot of work to get back to,

so I'm gonna keep this snappy.

I've looked through all of your proposals.

And while I think all of you have

more than a little something to offer,

the proposal that hits the nail on the head

is the one that shows the most leadership

and vision that is gonna be required

to take this company into the future.

Congratulations, Felzner.

Thank you, sir. You are welcome.

And you can move into that new office

of yours whenever you'd like.

Excuse me, sir? Mr. Gates?

Yes, Allan?

Listen, you said that you liked my work.

You said that it was strong...

I said I liked your work, Allan. And I do.

Okay, so why am I not getting the promotion?

I mean, I've been here longer than Felzner.

Felzner is the future, Allan. It's as simple as that.

Are you okay?

Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine.

Sorry, bro.

Hey, honey, it's me. Call me when you get a chance.

Come on. F***.

Where are you? Sh*t.


Brian, this is Allan.

You stole my idea.

And I know it.

And I'm gonna let Gates know it.

You can't get away with this. You hear me?

I'm not gonna let you get away with this.

Come on, lady.

Hey, honey. I've been trying to call

you. Why didn't you answer?

Where's Mike? I saw his car downstairs.

You all right? Something wrong?

Hey, Allan.

When did you become so detached?


I'm gonna go.


Jesus, Mike.

I'm sorry.

I wanted you to know.


This isn't working, Allan.

You are always so distant, so concerned

with climbing the ladder.

For us, Syd.

It was always for us.

I believe you. I do.

But somewhere along the line,

you actually forgot about me.

I mean, look at us. We don't even

fight with passion anymore.

The hot and cold I can take, but

this numbness in between...

So does that make this all okay?

No, it doesn't make it okay.

But don't pretend like I'm the only one with secrets.

Look at your face.

You think I actually believe that was an accident?

No, I just was trying to get ahead, Syd.

That's all I've ever done.

Well, maybe trying to get ahead,

you just fell behind.


I'll go... I'll go get a hotel.

Allan, wait...

Can I get a J D straight up, please?

Big night ahead?


You okay?


Thank you.

Can I get another one? Preferably in

a bigger glass, if you don't mind.

That's the biggest glass I got, sir.

I guess I'll be keeping you busy then tonight.

What are you drinking?



If it was a joke, would it be funny?

No, no, I mean, to each his own.

We interrupt this game to bring you

this breaking news story right now.

Jim O'Bannon, host of The O'Bannon files,

a sometimes controversial news and

opinion show viewed by millions,
