The clip partnership meeting and resigning from Jungle Fever (1991)
Gentlemen, I, um...
I think we all know why we're here.
My contribution to this company's success and growth...
speaks for itself.
Jerry, Leslie, you know I've worked very hard,
put in some very, very long hours.
We know that.
We both know that.
And now I think it's time for a vertical move.
I have moved as lateral as I can go.
And I think the only fair thing to do
is to accept me into the position of partner.
Now, I'm not making any demands.
I'm just saying...
You're not making any demands?
You ask for a partnership? That's not a demand?
I'm asking what I'm due. I deserve this.
I'm the next one in line. And besides, you promised.
We promised in due time.
"In due time" is what we said.
Look, fellows, time is due.
Look, we both understand how anxious you are,
and how patient you've been.
But... we can't do this now.
Not at this time.
Honestly, I can't say. I, uh...
Oh. You can't say?
Flipper, what is the deal here? What is...
Is this an issue of money or is it this new secretary?
It's not the secretary. And don't patronise me.
You know I work very hard.
I work very hard too!
I bust my balls.
I do too!
I work seven days a week!
How long have you been with us?
From the beginning.
What does that say? Mast and Covington!
That's my design up there.
I set up this goddamn company with...

The clip vincent-and-neil-sit-for-coffee from Heat (1995) with Al Pacino, Robert De Niro. Powered by: Anyclip. any moment from any film. Seven years in Folsom. In the hole for three. McNeil before that. McNeil as tough as they say? You looking to become a penologist? You're looking to go back? You know, I chase down some crews... ...guys just looking to fuck up, get busted back. That you? You must've worked some dipshit crews. I worked all kinds. You see me doing thrill-seeking liquor-store holdups... ...with a "Born to Lose" tattoo on my chest? No, I do not. Right. I am never going back. Then don't take down scores. I do what I do best, I take scores. You do what you do best, trying to stop guys like me. So you never wanted a regular-type life? What the fuck is that? Barbecues and ball games? Yeah. This regular-type life like your life? My life? No, my life... No, my life's a disaster zone. I got a stepdaughter so fucked up... ...because her real father is this large-type asshole. I got a wife. We're passing each other on the down slope of a marriage... ...my third... ...because I spend all my time chasing guys like you around the block. That's my life. A guy told me one time: "Don't let yourself get attached to anything... ...you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat... ...if you feel the heat around the corner."
