HART: Now this is what I’m talking about. You’re not bad looking for a gal with a little tread worn off her tires. I mean that. Sincerely. Come on, Violet, Franklin Hart knows the value of each girl who has the privilege to serve under him.
Now… Let me tell you my philosophy of business, Julie. In a word: Teamwork. Everyone pulling together. It’s a shame, and I have always said this, that you girls don’t have the experience growing up playing football or baseball because that’s where you learn that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. If we all work together we can cut the balls off our competition and be sitting pretty on top of the hill.
You see that, Violet? That’s the attitude I’m looking for. I’m trying to explain to Jody here… how we’re all a team and right away you’re not there for the handoff! I expect an employee, especially one who wants to be promoted to management, to show a little flexibility and cooperation. You savvy? Now be a good girl and get my coffee. No sugar, just some Skinny ’N Sweet.
