  • Quotes (14)

    • Ivan (with package): Delivery! They say good things come in small packages! Julianne: Do you mean Dave or the box, Barbapapa?

    • Julianne (about Brent): Which leads us to option number two … Erica: Mm-hmm? Julianne: We bring him down. We beg, borrow, steal - whatever it takes to win. Erica: There is a third option. We could just talk to him. Julianne (gently scoffs): Or we could go drink cyanide-laced Kool-Aid. Big "no" to both.

    • Brent: Survival of the fittest. Don't blame me, blame Darwin. Julianne: Brent! You're sitting in my office with my job. I think Darwin has made his point! Erica: What Julianne is saying is that we have no intention of interfering with River Rock's slate, so all we ask is you pay us the same professional courtesy. Brent: By pulling my offer on The Purple Door - a property I greatly desire? Erica: You don't … greatly desire it. Brent: But you do. Julianne: Okay, Erica, you know what? I can't listen to this anymore. Brent: Maybe you both need to grow a thicker skin. Business is war - and as you made crystal-clear at the Festival of Authors, we are not friends. Erica: Brent … Brent: Thanks for coming by. And btw., from now on, I will want any book that you greatly desire. I have told that to every lit agent in this country. River Rock'll pay, whatever it takes. Erica: What happened to you?

    • Erica: A-a-ugh. We should've never gone to River Rock today. That was … so humiliating. Julianne: Oh, hang on, this is kinda fun for me - I told you so.

    • Dr. Tom: "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" - Gandhi. Erica: I disagree. Dr. Tom: You disagree with Gandhi? Erica: Well, look, we went to River Rock. We sat in front of Brent and I tried to reason with him - and he made it perfectly clear that he wants to destroy us. Dr. Tom: So you feel you need to destroy him first?

    • Brent: Maybe you both need to grow a thicker skin. Business is war … Brent is repeating a phrase which became especially popular among business leaders in the 1990's. The idea is a distillation of concepts first put forth by the Prussian officer Carl von Clausewitz in his posthumously published work, Vom Kriege (roughly translated into English as On War) (1832). In the book, Clausewitz says "Rather than comparing (war) to art we could more accurately compare it to commerce, which is also a conflict of human interests and activities; and it is still closer to politics, which in turn may be considered as a kind of commerce on a larger scale." Clausewitz's ideas have been further refined to encompass the concept of seeing business as "war by other means" and the idea of business as "total competition". Motoman, the American robotics company (a subsidiary of the Japanese Yaskawa Electric Corporation) said it all in a 1994 advert in Manufacturing Engineering: "Business is war. Arm yourself."

    • Julianne: I have RRSP's. An RRSP is a Registered Retirement Savings Plan, a type of tax-deferred, Canadian account for holding savings and investment assets. The account holder can cash in any amount at any age, but the amount withdrawn becomes taxable income. RRSP's are similar to both IRA's and 401(k)'s in the United States and ISA's in the United Kingdom.

    • Jordan: Hey, Leo, grandpa here wants some music - just none of that weird-ass Radiomouth … Give us some HOOTIE! Jordan is disparaging the progressive alt-rock band, Radiohead, while calling for music by the more mainstream, preppie-orientated Hootie and the Blowfish.

    Allusions (2)

    • Julianne (to Ivan): Do you mean Dave or the box, Barbapapa? Teasingly addressing the large, bearded, rotund Ivan, Julianne alludes to Barbapapa, the title character of a series of children's books by French authors Annette Tison and Talus Taylor. Barbapapa (French for cotton candy or "father's beard") is a large, pink, pear-shaped blob-creature capable of shapeshifting. The popular stories have been translated into over thirty languages and also made into a series of short television cartoons and comic books.

    • Brent: To Julianne - not only my friend, my mentor and my hero … but also, the lady to my gaga. In toasting Julianne, Brent alludes to Lady Gaga, the American glam-pop personality known for her outré presentation and business acumen.
