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? 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
(I don't gotta sit here and listen to this shit.)
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 youre given you
can't close shit. You ARE shit. Hit the bricks pal, and beat it 'cause
you are going OUT.
(The leads are weak.)
The leads are weak? Fucking leads are weak. You're weak. I've been in
this business 15 years...
(What's your name?)
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 you attention?
Interest - Are you interested? I know you are, because 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?
(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?)
You see this watch? You see this watch? That watch costs more than
your 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 you
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.
