Linda:
Maybe we're going too fast. We should just take this a step at a time.



Lenny:
To hell with that. You don't STEP through life. "Teacher, may I?" It goes too quick for that. You gotta LEAP through life!

Lenny:
[at the board meeting where he first meets Max] Gentlemen, I won't bore you with the reading of my resume, some of which is actually true... We're born again with each new project. And all your past successes don't cut much ice when it comes to the Big Question: Will It Sell?... Sure, it'll sell. Over the life of the partnership, everyone will enjoy some small tax benefits... realize a nice, safe-though-modest return on their investment. You don't need me for that. But will it SOAR? That's another question... People struggle against smallness all their lives. Let them identify with something BIG!

Max:
[Max has discovered that Lenny put a check in Max's safety-deposit box, after "borrowing" $20,000 from the Century West Maintenance account, so that Lenny could treat Linda to a night in Las Vegas] A worthless goddamn CHECK?



Lenny:
What are you getting hysterical about? It was just a LOAN.



Max:
In all my life, I never treated ANYONE like I treated you! You were POOR; I made you RICH. You were DROWNING; I gave you a YACHT! And then you STOLE from me. After I treated you like a son. TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!



Lenny:
You want another check? I'll write you another check right now.



Max:
A check is no damn good. You want to be a liar as well as a thief?



Lenny:
Then tell me what to do. Just tell me, Max.



Max:
[hugs Lenny, then speaks softly] You gotta go. I can't have you around here anymore.
