Bill McNeal: Don't you think I should do the Al Gore interview? Because phone interviews keep me alert and if I'm not alert I might just start reading the news veeery slooowly, liiike thiiiis.
Ed Harlow: I will see what I can do.
Bill McNeal: Thanks, buddy. I know you'll make the right deciiiisiooon.
Jimmy James: What's on your mind?
Dave Nelson: Two things. Well, first, I want you to promise me when my time is up here, you'll tell me yourself and not have my replacement fire me.
Jimmy James: What's the second thing?
Dave Nelson: Well, uh, I wanted to let you know that I understand now that what you put me through today was a test.
Jimmy James: Could be. Or, could be I'm just making it all up as I go along.
Dave Nelson: Which is it?
Jimmy James: You'll never know.
Jimmy James: You know, Dave, I considered, what, thirty, thirty-five people for this job. Most of them had more experience than you, but you want to know what made you so special to me?
Dave Nelson: Oh, what's that, sir?
Jimmy James: [Cell phone rings, he answers it] What? Huh? Well, make it fast. I'm in the middle of telling the guy why he's so special to me. No, no, it's work-related.
Jimmy James: [looking at a stocks report] Ten points? What, are you kidding me? You pulling my chain?
Dave Nelson: Sir, is there something wrong?
Jimmy James: I own a lot of Euro Disney.
Dave Nelson: Mr. James, the Ed Harlow situation: it has been confronted and resolved.
Jimmy James: Wow, that was fast. Boy, you are a cold-blooded son of a gun, Dave. But, God bless you. I didn't think you were the firing type.
Dave Nelson: Actually, Ed quit. But that saves you two weeks severance pay.
Jimmy James: Quit? No, I didn't want Ed to quit. I wanted you to fire him!
Dave Nelson: Well, that's really sort of a moot point now, isn't it, sir?
Ed Harlow: [comes out of the elevator, kicks the box with his effects to Dave] Get the box, would you, Dave?
Jimmy James: Dave, Ed quits three times a week. Hell, sometimes he comes in on Sundays just to quit a few times without any distractions.
Dave Nelson: I did not know that.
Jimmy James: Well, it looks like you've got a walking, talking moot point to deal with, don't it. Pick it up.
[Dave picks up Ed's box]
