Now is not a good time, Molly.

I can barely hear you.

My signal's going.

I just pulled into the garage.

I don't care where you are.

We need to talk about this.

Not right now.

Igot too much riding on tonight.

You know what this deal means.


it means more to you than us.

-I gotta go.

-You gotta Iet me explain.

-You owe me that.

-lt doesn 't matter.

It 's not what you think.


-Tom, are you there?

-Yeah. Hang on.


-You can 't enter this way after six.

-I 'll call you back.

-lt 's okay, I work here.

-Where 's your pass card?

-I forgot it. Where 's Eddie?

-He 's making his rounds.

You might want to check

back later.

-Hey, there, Mr. Weaver.

-Hey, Eddie.

-Forget the old pass card?

-Yes, I did, Eddie.

No problem, sir. This is Victor.

He 's working nights with me now.

That 's great.

He goes out with Rebecca.

You know, Rebecca in your office.

Yep, I know who Rebecca is, Eddie.

You take good care of Mr. Weaver,

Victor. He 's one of the good guys.

-So, you 're Victor, huh?


Nice meeting you.

Rebecca speaks a lot about you.

-ls that right?


Can you open the gate? I 'm late.

I got business, you know?

What 's all the racket about?

Somebody 's in my spot.

I 'm trying to get security over here.

Are you looking to derail this

thing before it even gets going?

Here's Eddie.

-I heard the horn. You guys okay?


Haven 't you heard?

A lack of order leads to chaos.

That 's why God created

reserved parking.

That 's my fault. I didn 't think

you were coming in tonight.

Tight ship you run, Eddie.

I'll call up and get them to move it.

Just take a minute.

No, don't bother.

We 're late for our meeting. He can

park somewhere else, right, Tom?

-Any spots down on five?

-A few, I think.

Lot 's been packed today. Can 't

you wait? It 'll just take asecond.

Eddie, I said we 're late.

Okay. All right. Sorry.

Eddie, it 's okay.

-Are you okay?

-Yeah, yeah. I 'm good.

Because there 's still time, you know?

You can still walk away.

Walk away?

What are you talking about?

I 'm just asking you very simply.

Are you in or out?

I 'm here, right?

-What is this? A test?

-No, I 'm just crossing my "Ts".

We go up there,

there 's no turning back.

I just want to make sure you

understand that.

Ten million dollars.

That kind of money can rattle people.

-Especially those that need it.

-I 'm not rattled.

But I do need it.

Don 't you mean "we"? She has

very expensive tastes, your wife.

What did you tell her

about tonight?

I told her I was closing a deal and

I 'd be home just after midnight.

What is it?

What 's wrong?

I think she's having an affair.

She is. But trust me,

it 's only sex.

Come on, you 're getting paranoid.

That girl is crazy about you.

One night, Tom.

One night and

it 's all back on track.

Your job. Your marriage.

Your life.

After tonight,

all your problems will disappear.

You're about to find out that

people with money matter.

Because you will be one of them.

Park down on Five.

Out of sight.

-What did you do with your card?

-I left it at home like you told.

How do I get up stairs?

Borrowed it from the cleaning crew.

No one will know we were up there.

Meet me by the elevators.

I 'll come down.

You didn't callme back.

-You didn 't give me a chance to.

-So that's it?

-You don 't want to hear my side?

-Not now.

Why am I not surprised?

-You neverface anything head on.

-What do you want from me, Molly?

I said I can 't do it now. Okay?

Fine. But whatever you 're

thinking, it 's wrong.

You're making a big mistake, Tom.
