MIKE: No. No. I don’t smoke.
LOUIS: … the drug test that you took would indicate otherwise… Matter of fact, in this instance, we could use this to our advantage.
MIKE: What are you talking about, Louis?
LOUIS: … But if someone of his generation who shares the same proclivities…
MIKE: Are you saying you want me to smoke pot with him?
LOUIS: I’m saying you can help me land him as a client.

Hey, Tom. You just missed a great game. We were, uh… We were just… I was beating him. You know, 10 years ago, before these dot-com millionaires, there were men of substance in this club. You know, men who understood how business gets done.
Well, maybe he’s just not interested in talking business while he’s in a towel.
Mike, he’s not interested because he doesn’t think I’m cool. And he’s a pot-head who thinks that anybody who doesn’t smoke is a nerd. I mean… So I treat my body like a temple. Does that make me uncool? I don’t think so.
But on the other hand, you kind of seem his type.
Why do you say that?
Because you’re young. And you think of yourself as hip. Whatever, I guess. You know, I’m sure you enjoy the occasional bong hit.
No. No. I don’t smoke.
I mean, that’s just a little strange.
Why is it strange?
I mean, because, you know, the drug test that you took… Well, that I made you take, would indicate otherwise. You’re not going to dispute it now, are you? Relax, Mike. Relax. I’m not offended. I’m not even surprised. Matter of fact, in this instance, we could use this to our advantage.
What are you talking about, Louis?
I’m just saying. You know, back in the day, to woo a client, you would take them to dinner. You would buy them a drink. But that’s not going to work with Tom. Not in a million years. Not with me, anyway. But if someone of his generation who shares the same proclivities…
Are you saying you want me to smoke pot with him?
I’m saying you can help me land him as a client.
That’s the only reason I’m here, isn’t it?
No, Mike. Stop. Just stop, okay? I assure you, no one was more disappointed than me when I found out the results of your drug test. Okay? But then, I had to say to myself, “Louis, do what you do. “Make lemonade.”
And if I don’t?
You’re a smart kid. And I really want to see you succeed. Ball’s in your court. Hey, Tom. I was just going to tell you I wanted…
Dude creeps me out, man. And he never wears a towel. Ever.
Yeah, tell me about it. Hey, uh, I know you must hear this all the time, but… Totally addicted to your website, man.
All right. Who placed sixth in passing yards last year?
Carson Palmer. 3,970.
How many sacks did James Hall have?
Ten-and-a-half. Yeah, I know. I rounded up.
Well, your league doesn’t, or I’d have come in better than 20th.
You’re Ross’ Raiders. Right?
Yeah. Mike Ross.
Yeah. Good to meet you.
Congratulations, man. You’ve got a nice little team there.
No, if Roethlisberger hadn’t let you down, you would have been top 10 for sure. I’m telling you.
Yeah, well, that’s what happens when you get high before the draft, right?
You get high?
