Blake from Glengarry Glenn Ross arrives at home after his
meeting at the real estate office. He walks in through the
front door and sees his family sitting on the couch, watching
TV. The living room is cluttered and disheveled.
What the hell is going on here?
This place is a mess. Son, put that
GameBoy away. GameBoys are for
cleaners. I am not fucking with
you. I had a terrible day at the
office and now I have to come home
to this. It's filthy in here.
(Looks over at his wife). You call
yourself a mother, you dirty whore.
I don't have to listen to this.
That's right. You don't have to
listen to anything because as of
tonight, we're divorced. You heard
me, divorced. Now you have just one
week to save our marriage starting
Oh, we're divorced again? Can't you
just relax for once?
I'll relax once this house is
clean. And now that I have your
attention, let's go over tonight's
Another contest? Dad, do we have
Shut up, you little prick. Now,
tonight is going to be special.
Tonight, you losers are going to
clean this house. Whoever cleans
the most gets a new pair of
slippers. Second place also gets a
pair of slippers, but not as nice.
And the last place loser gets to
sleep outside for the rest of the
Your son lost three toes to frost
bite from sleeping outside last
So win the slippers. Do you people
understand what I'm saying? You've
got mops and brooms. I paid good
money for those cleaning supplies.
That mop is weak.
The mop is weak? The fucking mop is
weak? You're weak. I've been
mopping this house for fifteen
So why not just clean it again now?
Fuck you! That's why. Only one
thing matters right now: get this
goddamn house clean. You hear me,
you fucking maggots? Just remember,
'A', 'B', 'C'. A, always, B, be, C,
cleaning. Always be cleaning.
Blake, we all know our ABC's.
Apparently you need a reminder. Now
get in there and start scrubbing.
You think all this dirt just walked
in here by itself? This filth is
just sitting there, waiting to be
cleaned. (Looks to Son) Are you man
enough to clean it?
Leave him alone, Blake. If we're so
horrible, then why are you even
You see this ring? I choose to be
here! Now it's your choice,
assholes. Are you cleaners or
(Looks at daughter) You think this
is abuse? You think this is abuse,
Blake, don't call your daughter a
You don't like it? Leave. I don't
care. I can roll up my sleeves and
clean this whole house in two
hours! Can you? Can you? 'A,' 'B,'
'C', you son's a bitches. 'A,' 'B,'
God Dad, just tell us what you
Don't play dumb. You know what it
takes to clean this house. It takes
blood and sweat. The filth is out
there, you clean it and everything
is fine. You don't, I got no pity
But dad, we're hungry. Can we eat
I left a pizza out in the car. It's
delicious, and none of you get any.
Why? Because pizza is for cleaners.
Blake's cell phone rings and he turns to answers it.
Hello? Uh, huh, yes sir. I'm sorry
sir. Of course, I. I'll be right
there. (Hangs up the phone). I'll
be back in an hour. This pigsty
better sparkle when I return or all
you motherfuckers are sleeping
outside this year.
Blake starts to exit stage left.
But Dad, what about the pizza?
The pizza is coming with me!
Blake exits, while his wife, son and daughter resume their
