- Good morning, Mr. Seymour.

- Morning.

- Good morning, Mr. Seymour.

- Morning, Angela.

- Morning, Mr. Seymour.

- Morning.

- Good morning.

- Morning.

- Charlie, let's go!

- Is Dad coming tonight, Mom?

- I left a message on his machine.

- Call him again. Sometimes he forgets.

- See you, Cliff.

- See you.

- Bye, sweetheart.

- Bye.

Sam, I have to get budget approval

for this South China Seas thing.

That means we have

to go over your wish list.

Not now. I'm looking at furs at 10. I've

got menswear people in from Atlanta.

Where were you this morning?

I woke up and you'd gone.

I told you I had my exercise class.

- Bye.

- Bye.

- Morning, Sam.

- Hi, Sam.

- Yo, Marshall.

- Yo, Marshall.

I hear he's taking Sam

on this Far East junket.

She's a fashion buyer.

She's a logical choice.

So the fact that he's boffing her

has nothing to do with it?

- I said she's a logical choice.

- Oh, cute. Cute.

Confirm lunch with Davidson.

He's from L.A. Better make it sushi.

I'm going to my kid's concert.

You gotta have me out of here by 5.

Good morning.

Unbelievable.

Sorry.

- See you later.

- Bye. Yeah.

- Charlie.

- Hi, Dad.

Charlie, what can I say?

You can't believe the problems I had.

When I get back from my trip,

you're staying with me?

- Yeah.

- When Mom's on vacation?

Charlie, I'm gonna make

it up to you. I swear.

That's okay, Dad.

We've played better.

I guess I'll just have

to buy the album.

Hi. Come on, Charlie. If we're

gonna get a pizza, we gotta move it.

Let's go, Charlie.

My friends, ladies and gentlemen.

Welcome, Mr. Seymour, Miss Crespi,

to Thailand.

We hope you love our country...

...and buy so many things

to take back to America.

- Cheers.

- Cheers. Thank you.

Mr. Turk, long time. Long time.

If this business doesn't kill me, the

stairs will. I hope the climb's won'th it.

- Same old Mr. Turk.

- Right.

- You look good.

- Yeah, a regular movie star.

What do you got for me?

Always business first, huh, Mr. Turk?

- What's with Imelda?

- Nothing. Old Lady. Superstitious.

- It's real gold.

- Yes.

Very rare. From Tibet.

The lamas believe in reincarnation.

They use it in religious ceremonies

to change the house of spirit.

Don't try to up the ante with that tourist

bullshit, Kwo. Five grand.

Five thousand dollars?

Pure gold! Precious stone!

I think in America you get $ 100,000.

You know how many payoffs

I gotta make to get this to America?

Thais come down harder on art lovers

like me than they do on dope dealers.

Five grand. Take it or leave it.

What did you say?

I tell him this one's fragile,

so take great care.

Hey, I want this to go

with the rest of the samples. $ 1.50.

I bought all the guy had.

The store puts a lampshade on this...

...retails for, what, 75, 80?

Nothing like a 600-percent markup

to put a smile on your face.

- These will be on our flight tomorrow?

- Yes. Government deal.

- No problem with customs.

- Okay, I'd like this to go too, please.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Excuse me. Incredibly sorry.

Where did they come from? They

werert there when I went to the phone.

You've been gone

for a half an hour, Marshall.

I swear to God, that's it for work.

How are the drinks?

Look at you. You're lethal, right?

Can we have a couple more of these?

I have plans for tonight.

Tonight, we'll experience the wonder

of Marshall Seymour in the Orient.

I promise.

If you don't, I'm gonna show

everyone this at work.

- No, you're not. I don't think so.

- I think so.

I don't think you will. No.

- Why don't I take one of the two of you.

- Great.
