Jerry: Yeah, real good. How you doin'?
Reilly Deifenbach: Pretty good, Mr. Lundegaard. You're damned hard to get on the phone.
Jerry: Yeah, it's pretty darned busy here, but that's the way we like it.

Reilly Deifenbach: Yeah, the three hundred and twenty thousand, you got the money last month.
Jerry: Yeah, so we're all set.
Reilly Deifenbach: Yeah, but the vehicles you were borrowing on, I just can't read the serial numbers on your application. Maybe if you could just read them to me--
Jerry: But the deal's already done, I already got the money.

Jerry: Yeah, well, they exist all right.
Reilly Deifenbach: I'm sure they do, but I can't read their serial numbers here. So if you could read me--
Jerry: Well, but see, I don't have them in front of me. Why don't I just fax you over a copy--
Reilly Deifenbach: No. Fax is no good, that's what I have and I can't read the darn thing.
Jerry: Yeah, okay, I'll have my girl send you over a copy, then.
Reilly Deifenbach: Okay, because if I can't correlate this note with the specific vehicles, then I gotta call back that money.
Jerry: Yeah, how much money was that?
Reilly Deifenbach: Three hundred and twenty thousand. See, I gotta correlate that money with the cars it's being lent on.
Jerry: Yeah, no problem, I'll just fax that over to ya, then.
Reilly Deifenbach: No, no, fax is--
Jerry: I mean send it over. I'll shoot it right over to ya.
Reilly Deifenbach: Okay.
Jerry: Okay, real good, then.
