Shelley Levene: Huh?

Dave Moss: You got the memory of a fucking fly.

Dave Moss: Yes, well that's very cute, but you're running this office like a bunch of bullshit.

Dave Moss: Cop couldn't find his dick, two hands and a map.

Dave Moss: [on Ricky] He's the top man on the board so he doesn't have to sit here and listen to this shit?
Williamson: That's correct! And as the hour is waning I suggest you those of you who are interested in a continuing job with this organization, get to work!
Dave Moss: This is garbage. A bunch of bullshit!
Williamson: Thank you for your time.
Dave Moss: Bullshit!

Dave Moss: Cop couldn't find his dick with two hands and a map.
Ricky Roma: What'd he beat you with his rubber bat?
Dave Moss: He's got no right. Cop's got no right to speak to me like that.
Ricky Roma: You gonna turn state's
Dave Moss: Fuck you, Rick.
Ricky Roma: HAH!

Blake: You're talking about what. You're talking about... Bitching about that sale you shot, some sonofabitch who don't wanna buy land, some broad you're trying to screw, so forth. Let's talk about something important. They all here?
Williamson: All but one.
Blake: I'm going anyway. Let's talk about something important. Put. That coffee. Down. Coffee's for closers only. You think I'm fucking with you? I am not fucking with you. I'm here from downtown. I'm here from Mitch and Murray. And I'm here on a mission of mercy. Your name's Levine? You call yourself a salesman you son of a bitch?
Dave Moss: I don't gotta sit here and listen to this shit.
Blake: You certainly don't pal, 'cause the good news is - you're fired. The bad news is - you've got, all of you've got just one week to regain your jobs starting with tonight. Starting with tonight's sit. Oh? Have I got your attention now? Good. "Cause we're adding a little something to this month's sales contest. As you all know first prize is a Cadillac El Dorado. Anyone wanna see second prize? Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you're fired. Get the picture? You laughing now? You got leads. Mitch and Murray paid good money, get their names to sell them, you can't close the leads you're given you can't close shit. You ARE shit. Hit the bricks, pal, and beat it 'cause you are going OUT.
Shelley Levene: The leads are weak.
Blake: The leads are weak? Fucking leads are weak. You're weak. I've been in this business 15 years...
Dave Moss: What's your name?
Blake: Fuck you. That's my name. You know why, mister? You drove a Hyundai to get here. I drove an eighty-thousand dollar BMW. THAT'S my name. And your name is you're wanting. You can't play in the man's game, you can't close them - go home and tell your wife your troubles. Because only one thing counts in this life: Get them to sign on the line which is dotted. You hear me, you fucking faggots? A-B-C. A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing. Always be closing. ALWAYS BE CLOSING. A-I-D-A. Attention, Interest, Decision, Action. Attention - Do I have your attention? Interest - Are you interested? I know you are, 'cause it's fuck or walk. You close or you hit the bricks. Decision - Have you made your decision for Christ? And Action. A-I-D-A. Get out there - you got the prospects coming in. You think they came in to get out of the rain? A guy don't walk on the lot lest he wants to buy. They're sitting out there waiting to give you their money. Are you gonna take it? Are you man enough to take it? What's the problem, pal?
Dave Moss: You - Moss. You're such a hero, you're so rich, how come you're coming down here wasting your time with such a bunch of bums?
Blake: You see this watch? You see this watch?
Dave Moss: Yeah.
Blake: That watch costs more than you car. I made $970,000 last year. How much'd you make? You see pal, that's who I am, and you're nothing. Nice guy? I don't give a shit. Good father? Fuck you! Go home and play with your kids. You wanna work here - close! You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you cocksucker? You can't take this, how can you take the abuse you get on a sit? You don't like it, leave. I can go out there tonight with the materials you've got and make myself $15,000. Tonight! In two hours! Can you? Can YOU? Go and do likewise. A-I-D-A. Get mad you son of a bitches, get mad. You want to know what it takes to sell real estate? It takes BRASS BALLS to sell real estate. Go and do likewise gents. Money's out there. You pick it up, it's yours. You don't, I got no sympathy for you. You wanna go out on those sits tonight and close, CLOSE. It's yours. If not you're gonna be shining my shoes. And you know what you'll be saying - a bunch of losers sittin' around in a bar. 'Oh yeah. I used to be a salesman. It's a tough racket.' These are the new leads. These are the Glengarry leads. And to you they're gold, and you don't get them. Why? Because to give them to you is just throwing them away. They're for closers. I'd wish you good luck but you wouldn't know what to do with it if you got it. And to answer your question, pal, why am I here? I came here because Mitch and Murray asked me to. They asked me for a favor. I said the real favor, follow my advice and fire your fucking ass because a loser is a loser.

Dave Moss: [complaining about the leads] Bullshit!
Williamson: Thank you for your attention.
Dave Moss: Bullshit!

Dave Moss: Fuck Mitch & Murray!

Dave Moss: Did they steal the contracts?
Ricky Roma: The fuck you care?
Shelley Levene: [retelling to Roma his sales deal] "Harriet, I wanna tell you something..."
Dave Moss: What's that supposed to mean?
Shelley Levene: Will you shut up? I'm telling him something.
George Aaronow: [George gets in] Can we get some coffee?
Dave Moss: How you're doing?
George Aaronow: Fine.
Dave Moss: Uh huh.
George Aaronow: If anybody's going out, I could use some coffee.
[George exits]
Shelley Levene: [still telling his story] You do get the opportunity.
Dave Moss: [to Ricky] The fuck that's supposed to mean?
Shelley Levene: You DO get the opportunities, you get it as I get it, as everybody get it.
Dave Moss: Rick, did I don't care that they stole the contracts?
Shelley Levene: Now, I had them on the kitchen and I'm eating their crumb cakes...
Dave Moss: What does that mean?
Ricky Roma: It means, Dave, you haven't closed a good one in a month! None of my business you wanna push me to answer you. So, you haven't got a contract to get stolen so far.

Dave Moss: The rich getting richer, that's the law of the land.

Williamson: Where's Mr. Roma?
Dave Moss: I'm not a leash, so I don't know. Do I?
