Bus 27, Dearfield,

will be arriving at 9.25.

Here you go.

It's just 8 months, then

We're never apart again.

I know.

I know.

Nothing, nothing

is gonna change.

Trust me.

I do.

It's just...

We're still

gonna get married.

We're still gonna

build a life together.

Just keep reminding yourself

how good this is gonna be

for us When it's over.

I got this for you.

It's beautiful.

"To Ben from Wendy.

As for me and my house,

We Will serve the Lord. "

This is awesome.

Ben, I still feel like you're

gonna change out there.

What if this changes?

I Won't let it.

But What about our plans

for our ministry?

You're such a good preacher.

You can still do seminary.

We've been

through this before.

It's not something I Want to do,

but We can still do

the ministry We discussed.

We can still help people

even more noW that I've been

on the ground floor of a company

Where I can build a good career.

I have to do it in the City,

and you know that.

That career stuff

just doesn't...

I just Want

to be With you.

Hey, We're gonna

be great, We are.

This is your final boarding

call for Green Line 277

serving Long Mount, Zion,

Manitou, Westville,

now boarding at gate 2.

Green Line 277 final

boarding call at gate 2.

Okay, I gotta go.

I know.

Ben, this doesn't

feel right.

What if this is one

of those moments,

a moment We're gonna

regret later?

It isn't,

and it Won't be.

Have faith.

I do.


Here you go.

I love you.

I love you too.

Good morning, sir.

Happy birthday, Elaine.

Mr. Walker, shouldn't have.

Yellow roses.

Don't Want to make Jim

in HR jealous, yet.

You never

bring me flowers.

It's not your birthday.

I bet you don't

even know my birthday.

It's on a day in one

of those months, right?

Stop, you're

embarrassing yourself.

September 24th,

Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Kenosha, it's

near Milwaukee.

How they doing in there?

Got about three calls

asking for you.

Don't you think they've

Waited long enough?


You're terrible.

No, I'm the best.

Nice of you to join us.

Well, fine, so should We...

Can you believe they charge

$4.50 for a cup of coffee?

I think We're in

the Wrong business.

And you are?

I'm a fortune teller.

I can see the future.

Somebody'd pay

a lot for that.

They already do.

Okay, I think the issues

that We need to discuss

are right here on page 6.

You know, a couple

thousand years ago,

Rome was the most powerful

nation in the world.

No one Was even close.

Didn't he say he Was gonna

say something about the future?

Rome was so strong that when

she bent her gaze in the second

most powerful nation in

the World, Egypt,

the Egyptians surrendered

Without a fight,

Rather than go up against an empire

that never lost a war,

those nations who capitulated

were treated well,very well.

Those who didn't were still conquered

but rome was unkind to them.

Hey,your not Julius Caesar,ok?

No i'm not,he didn't

think big enough

So what makes you sure you'll win

Mr. Bessette,like most owner

founders the majority of

your wealth is tied up in

the stock of your own company

You believe in yourself and

you should.

You take only a nominal salary

but you like to live well.

So you've collaterized your

ownership to raise equity

which is very smart move

in an up market.

We are well supported in our

institutional relationships

and in no way invulnerable

in our credit.

- Past.

- Excuse me?

You've already answered 2 margin calls.

If the share price drops down to 75 cents

you will answer to a third

No we didn't.Dad, what he is talking

about?this guy is crazy.
