Richard: So finally I'm just sitting there and I
decide, you know, "This is Stan Grossman. What the hell?" And I start pitching
him the nine steps. And about- I don't know - two minutes in, he stops me, he
says, "I can sell this."
Frank: Mm-hmm. Interesting.
Richard: Yeah, and this is the guy who knows how to do it. You know, you
start with a book, and then you do a media tour, corporate events, DVD, VHS
series. I mean, there's a whole fascinating science into how you roll these things out.
Richard: Yeah, so he's in Scottsdale right now, you know...building the buzz
and kind of getting the whole hype thing going. He's doing what the pros call a
ticking clock auction.
Frank: Oh, how about that!
Richard: Yeah, and I can detect that note of sarcasm there, Frank.
Frank: What sarcasm? I didn't-I didn't hear it.
Richard: But I want you to know something. I feel sorry for you.
Frank: You do? Good.
Richard: Yeah, I do. Because sarcasm is the refuge of losers.
Frank: It is? Really?
Richard: Yep. Sarcasm is losers trying to bring winners down to their level
and that's step four in the program.
Frank: Wow, Richard, you've really opened my
eyes to what a loser I am. How much do I owe you for those
pearls of wisdom?
Richard: That one's on the house.
Frank: It is?
Richard: It's on the house. That's on the house.
Sheryl: Okay, you guys, that's enough.
Frank: That was for free?
Richard: No charge. No charge.
Sheryl: Stop it!
Frank: He started it.
Richard: That's- Oh, wait a second.
Sheryl: You are so bad.
Richard: Quiet. This is it. This is that call. He-Hello? Stan? Stan? Stan
Grossman? Richard Hoover. Finally. How're ya doin'? No, I know. We were, uh, on
the highway, and I lost you on my cell. Forget about
it. How'd we do?
Sheryl: Honey, I'm using the ladies' room. You need to go?
Olive: No. I'm needing go practice my routine over there.
Sheryl: Okay, well, don't go too far.
Richard: Well, I think that we just gotta talk to him a little. No, you gotta
talk to him. No, Stan, listen to me. Hold on now.
