The movie Glengarry Glen Ross is about a group of sleazy real-estate salesmen and their desperate attempts to hoodwink reluctant customers and one-up each other. It was adapted from David Mamet’s award-winning play of the same name. The movie contains a memorable scene where Alec Baldwin, as the representative of the head office, tells the salesmen that they must win a sales contest in order to keep their job.

- Their job
