(Dan tries the fish sushi)

Yeah.

 

 

[Dan is grunting from eating the sushin]

 

 

Carter

Yeah.

So l wanted to talk to you,

 

 

 

[Dan is still grunting from disgust]

 

Carter:

because, uh

 

Dan:

This is raw.

 

 

Carter:

…an increase

in ad pages is…

Well, it’s really

only part of the equation

in terms of achieving

the bottom line

my bosses want me to hit.

Understand, Teddy K.

is making cuts

across the board here.

ln point of fact,

l have to cut

$500,000  of salary

from the sales team

immediately.

 

 

Dan:

l don’t make

that much money, Carter.

 

 

Carter:

l know how much

you make, Dan.

 

Dan:

Well,

l wish you’d told me

that l was fired

before l ate

the goddamn fish. (gets up to leave)

 

 

Carter:

Oh, Dan! Dan! Dan!

[clearing throat]

l’m–l’m not letting you

go here.

 

 

DanL

You’re not?

 

 

Carter:

No.

You are an excellent salesma

You ran a good team.

l think

that you have the potential

to be an awesome wingman here.

An awesome wingman?

 

 

[Dan is laughing]

Dan:

 

B-But, Carter,

l definitely see

the benefit for you

in having an awesome wingman.

But what is

the benefit for me

at this point in my career

of being an awesome wingman?

 

Carter:

Well,

one benefit at this point

in your career

is that you get

to keep your job.

That’s a pretty good benefit,

don’t you think?
