The clip taking over the meeting from The Secret of My Succe$s (1987) with Michael J. Fox, John Pankow
Mr. Davenport, we realize you'll want to move some of your own people...
into the medium control positions here at Pemrose.
What we're concerned about, frankly, is the upper management positions.
Most of �em will have to go.
But a handful of �em...
who have been so helpful...
like yourselves, of course...
will be stayin' as long as you like.
Well, then I see nothing to stand in the way...
of the immediate merger of our two companies.
Is this the place? It is! Hey, good. Sorry we're late.
Get them out of here.
I'm sorry. This is a private meeting.
I have to ask you to leave.
Hold these, will you? Thanks a lot.
Call building security.
Howard, relax. Listen.
On behalf of the personnel in the mailroom...
the girls in the secretarial pool, the female executives here at Pemrose...
we wanted to give our blessing to this little merger.
Who in hell are these people?
Is that Don? Donny!
How ya doin'? You mind if I stand up? I think better when I'm movin' around.
Gotta tell you, Don...
at first, the idea of this merger made me as nervous...
as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
But then I realized I was wrong.
The combination of our products and your distribution capabilities...
could vault Pemrose right to the top of the market.
So glad you approve...
whoever you are.
Now if you get the hell out of here, we'll finish the job.
I can't do that for you, Don.
See, the problem here is management.
Things were bad enough when Howard was running the company.
Now we got you to deal with too.
Get them out of here, now.
He can't, Don. You see, Brantley made arrangements...
to buy five percent of the stock...
in your company, Davenport Enterprises, this morning.

Live television is the scariest medium of all... ...because it's millions of people. If you're going to act silly or not show up... ...it's going to be a glaring omission. I just remember being very nervous. He sat down and he played, and I was aware... ...of a real professional. What's there to be nervous about? He's there. I remember though, on the way back, he was a little pissed off... ...at Count Basie. What did he say? He said Count Basie kept looking at him... ...while he was playing. He was at the piano and that somehow bothered him. He said, "Next time he plays, I'm going to look at him."

I think he wants us to get out of here. The trip is over! Don't cry in the hallway. We're straight ahead, right? Do you have chicken livers and rice or something like that? Chicken? Chicken liver. Chicken liver. I don't think we have that, sir. Just a second, please. Chicken salad we have here, sir. Chicken salad or chicken? How about just liver? Liver? Ja. - Do you have anything that goes with it? - Veal liver. Veal liver with potatoes... ...French fried potatoes or mashed potatoes? - Mashed potatoes. - With mashed potatoes. - He has your food. - Hello, sir. You're going to get up now, aren't you? You didn't bring no ice.
