Robert Wuhl: Arliss Michaels
[Show opening voiceover]
Arliss Michaels : For most of us the dream of becoming a champion remains a fantasy. But for a special few it is very much a reality. We cheer them. We live through them. Athletes are our last warriors. My job is to make their dreams come true. My name is Arliss Michaels. I represent athletes. These are my stories.
Giselle : Perhaps I underestimated you.
Arliss Michaels : Oh I hope so. I make my living off of people that underestimate me.
Rita Wu : [Arliss is wondering why one of his clients, a black quarterback can't get on a team] I told you the reason why. It's as clear as black and white.
Arliss Michaels : More like black and puce. I just picked up a rumor that Theo Holt is gay.
Kirby Carlisle : Gay? No way. Theo Holt doesn't sing from the mike... We've chased tail together. He's been my wingman for a dozen missions.
Arliss Michaels : Has he ever shot down any planes?
