Jason's Al Pacino Site

Glengarry Glen Ross


Times are tough in a Chicago office; the salesmen (Shelley Levene, Ricky Roma, Dave Moss, and George Aaronow) are given a strong incentive by Blake to succeed in a sales contest. The prizes? First prize is a Cadillac Eldorado, second prize is a set of steak knives, third prize is the sack! There is no room for losers in this dramatically masculine world; only "closers" will get the good sales leads. There is a lot of pressure to succeed, so a robbery is committed which has unforseen consequences for all the characters.
A cast that was brilliant in this movie - Al Pacino - Jack Lemmon - Kevin Spacey - Ed Harris - Alec Baldwin - Alan Arkin - Jonathan Pryce

Shelley The Machine - The leads are weak ..
Blake - The leads are weak? The f***ing leads are weak? You're weak. I've been in this business fifteen years.
Dave Moss - What's your name?
Blake - F**k you! That's my name. You know why mister? Cause you drove a Hyundai to get here tonight. I drove an eighty thousand dollar BMW. That's my name.

(Turns and points to Shelley) And your name is you're wanting. If you can't play in the man's game, you can't close them, you 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 here me you f***ing faggots?

(At the blackboard) '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 f**k 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. (leans over Shelley's desk) Are you going to take it? Are you man enough to take it? (walks over to Dave) What's the problem, pal, you Moss?

Dave Moss - You're such a hero, you're so rich, how come you're coming down here waste your time with such a bunch of bums?

Blake - You see this watch? You see this watch?

Dave Moss - Yeah.

Blake - That watch cost more than your car. I made $970,000 last year, how much you make? You see pal, that's who I am and you're nothing. Nice guy, I don't give a shit. Good father, f**k you, go home and play with your kids.

You want to work here, close! (walks over to George) You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you c**ksucker? 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, the materials you got, 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 know what it takes to sell real estate? It takes brass balls to sell real estate. Go and do likewise gents. The money's out there, you pick it up it's yours, you don't, I got no sympathy for you. You want to go out on those sits tonight and close, close it's yours. If not you're going to be shinin' 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.

(Walks back to Dave to get his gold Rolex) 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. (Blake walks into the office with Williamson.)

Dave Moss - A bunch of f**king nonsense. Treat people like that. What the f**k is he going to get off? Mickey-mouse sales conference.


"Is that what I did Dave? I humiliated you. Oh my God, I'm sorry."
