Glengarry Glen Ross Act 1, Scene 3 Summary

  • Quick—guess where we are. If you said the Chinese restaurant, you are absolutely right. Go ahead and give yourself a shiny little gold star sticker.
  • This time though, it's Ricky Roma talking to a guy named Lingk, who's sitting at the booth next to him.
  • While this scene is technically comprised of two people, it's basically a Roma monologue. Roma talks and talks and talks about everything: the nature of life, decisions we make, women he's been with, the best meals he's ever had. Roma is smooth. Really smooth.
  • Eventually Roma brings up some property he's selling. Maybe Lingk will like it, maybe not—it doesn't even matter. They're just two guys talking, right?
