So we walk in...

...shake hands....

Where do we sit?


-Right. Good. Down.

-Yeah, why not?

-Will you say hello first, or will I?

-Why don't I?

-Good. This is gonna be okay.

-It's gonna be marvelous.

Are you sure?

I dreamt that when we walked

into this meeting, I had no clothes on.

Well, I was wearing a doily.

And Julie McCoy from The Love Boat

was there and she had three breasts.

And then we kind of fell into a hot tub.

And all of a sudden...

...she wanted a commitment!

I'm freaking out. I'm freaking out.

Okay, Oskie...

...this is what we're gonna do.

We're gonna have a signal.

If you start to babble,

just watch the signal.

No babbling, no chatting... small talk. We got a signal now

so we can do this.

Okay, yes. You're right.

We can do it. Thank you.

We'll walk in there and kick some ass.

Say it with me.

Kick some ass!

Hold me.

It's a bit much, I know.

You look intimidating in this picture.

I asked, but they wouldn't run

a nude photo.

Now that would have been

really intimidating.

What are you doing today?

I can't disclose that information.

You never tell me anything.

I love it when you get all mushy like that.

This song is too slow.

When do I see you again?

Whenever I feel like it.

Mr. Newman.

It is now 3:

From 4:
00 until 6:30, you will be hearing

proposals for the cultural center.

I'll be right out.

Also, your wife called.

She's expecting you for dinner

at The Ritz at 8:00.

-Thank you.

-I'm out of here.

-Wait, Amy, let me--

-Call me later.

I'll buzz you when the first team

of architects arrives.

Peter, before we go in,

I just wanted to say...

...that I would never have

an opportunity like this without you.

So, you know...

...whatever happens in there,

I just want you to know that...

...I'm very honored to be your partner.

You are the best partner

that a man could ever have.

Now, let's go inside before

you start singing or something, okay?

Look at this.

It's Gilligan and the Skipper too.

What have you studmuffins

been up to lately?

Well, we've become triathletes, actually.

We bike, we swim, we....

-Also do the third thing.

-That's right.

Congratulations on your work in

that men's room in the bus station.

Yes, your use of mosaic

in the urinal trough...

...was reminiscent of our mural

in the Hancock Building.

Except people don't piss on ours.

That's not true. We read the reviews.

Ouch. Humor.

Decker and Strauss.

-Let's go nail this job.

-See you.

Watch your feet.

Pardon me.

Well, I'm not worried. You?

No. Absolutely not.

-We're dead.

-Yeah, we're dead.

Sir, the Charles Newman Cultural Center...

...would redefine cultural life in the city.

There'd be a museum, an opera house... international food court.


...Madame Butterfly...



Steinberg and Novak.


-Good luck, ladies.

-Thank you.


So you've worked with those two men?

We did.

Are they really, you know, partners?

Of course...

...Peter is, you know....

-But Oscar--

-No, Josh.

Actually, Josh....

No, Oscar is very, very, you know.

It's nice to meet you, sir.

It's nice to meet you, sir.

They hang out at, you know, bars.

And they march in the, you know, parade.

They have, you know... with, you know, men.

-It's very nice to meet you, sir.

-He can hear you.

-No, he can't.

-Yes, he can.

-I'm Peter Steinberg. Oscar Novak.

-It's nice to meet you.

-How you guys doing today?


Couldn't be better.

It's an honor to meet you.

And your office is....

Hey, you have a Buddha.

Oh, I love Buddhas. They're, like,
