The Omnipotence of Dreams



(suspenseful music)

(sound of projector)

(suspenseful music)

(lightning cracks)

(melancholy music)

(jazz music)

(electricity buzzes)

(distorted jazz music)

(lightning cracks)

(rain patters)

(thunder rumbles)

(rain patters)

(lightning cracks)

Wow, I can't believe this

weather, it's just miserable.

(sighs) Top shelf.

(thunder rumbles)

Yeah, but I'm not

sure this is any better.

(loud thud)


(man mumbles)

(thunder rumbles)

Bet you Wilson's place

is worse than this place.


You guys staying at Wilson's place?

(laughs) No.

Well, he's married the boss's daughter.

(faint speaking)

(suspenseful music)

(faint speaking)


I hope he does (laughs).

She does have a little

extra padding (laughs).

(faint speaking)

(suspenseful music)

(faint speaking and laughter)

(suspenseful music)

What a dump.

Okay, so getting back to Wilson.

The very day of the closing.

Wilson, check the current

number on the Anderson account.

Don't use the current numbers,

use the projected numbers I supplied.

You know, I brought him into this deal.

(thunder rumbles)

I said to make

a quarter-of-a-mill on this one.

A couple more sales like this

and I can write my own ticket.

Just pad numbers and the Andersons pick up

the rest of the cost.

Okay, so you know what he says to me?

He says, "But, that's not honest!"

Iay hey, I'm not in business to be honest.

I'm in business to make money.

What a dink!

Okay, so after all my

reworking the numbers,

make sure to use the numbers

that I gave you, Wilson.

But no, Wilson's got it

all figured out (laughs).

So what happened?

The numbers are dropped.

Wilson didn't recalculate my adjustment

and instead of making

my four-quarter-a-mill,

I ended up walking away with half of that.

Oh man.

Well, what does he care?

He's the boss's son-in-law,

he doesn't have to worry.

The family's worth a fortune.

What a dink.

- What a day.

- What a day.

Right (laughs).

Sometimes I can't believe

how these idiots get in

these positions with authority, you know?

But he's honest.


What did the old man say?

What could he say?

The holidays are coming up.

You can't show up to Thanksgiving dinner

with bad blood between he and Wilson.

What will his precious little girl say?

He's content to have me

keep the holiday peace

in this house and all it cost me was 1/8th

of $1 million.


(sighs) With a handicap like him,

you won't retire until

you're well over 50.

Well, it affects you too.

I know!

Because of Wilson, I barely

cleared half-a-mill last year

and with the economy

the way it is and having

to interact with people like him,

it's no wonder we can

make a living at all.

- Dink!

- Dink!


It's too late.

It's too late.

No, it's wrong.

She's here for you.

You, she's here for you.

(thunder rumbles)

I don't know what I'm complaining about.

I don't want to have that money anyway,

not with the way the wife spend it.


The other day I came home

and she had all new drapes

made for the entire house.

Didn't she just have that

done a couple years ago?

Yeah, but she has a new friend who is

an interior designer.

They met at the club and

they go out on Thursdays,

girls' afternoon tea.

They go out for tea (laughs)?

No (laughs)!

Well, I don't know, I just said that.

Who knows what they do?

Think of ways to spend my money, no doubt.


I say to her, you had two

professional career choices

in life, marry a rich

man or go on Welfare.


Either way, it's a free ride.


And then the son comes
