Maybe I should do the negotiating? His day rate might be lower than his night rate.

While you're negotiating, see how much extra it would cost if he wore the pirate outfit. :P

What would you do for a million big ones? He writes you a check immediately, so you don't have to wait. Let's take the original premise first. Trade your spouse for one night? How about lie? Cheat? Steal? And if not one million, how about two million? Would you give it up then? How much would it take to totally corrupt you and your principles. I believe the premise of the movie is everybody has a price. True??
What would I do for a milliom bucks up front? I don't see this as selling out or being corrupt unless you're doing something corrupt. If it's a win/win it's liek any other deal. I would not do anything that causes me pain or gets me in trouble with the law.

I cannot do something like kill somebody for a million bucks because that would be involving someone else that I have no right to involve. Besides that would almost always be something against the law, violating rule #1.

As far as letting my wife hump Robert Redford...? Like any major financial decision we'd have to discuss it first.

So other than those few simple rules...anything else

Re: Indecent Proposal

I'd say no. I plan on having my own first million well before i'm 50, so i dont need the money.

Now if the offer were made to me and it was going to be with a hot chick, hell i'd do it for free. Would the deal require having to tell the wife about it?

Martha, I am shocked! You would take Johnny Depp over Richard Gere?

Yeah. . . I spend a lot of time thinking about this because it's so likely to happen.

Actually, the problem I have is that I look just like Jonny Depp and women keep offering me money to spend a night with them.

Cal, maybe you could lower your bill by supplying him with one when he shows up at your place.

Assuming that he's not a 13-year-old dog from Missoula...

Do you need a manager to handle your nighttime schedule?
