* JerkassHasAPoint: Blake tells everybody exactly what is needed to succeed in the Real Estate business, and he isn't polite about it. It's abrasive, full of ClusterFBombs, and it makes it clear to everyone in sales just what is necessary to succeed.

** The true Butt Monkey is probably Levene. Who A. Is singled out for pouring coffee during the Baldwin scene. B. Begs Williamson for the Glengarry leads, with a major loss for him, and doesn't even get them. C. He's the only person we see chasing the worthless Glen Ross leads, which of course go nowhere. D. When he finally does close, [[spoiler: it doesn't mean anything because Williamson describes the people as insane people who commit to fake deals all the time]] and E. [[spoiler: He presumably gets sent to jail in the ending.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheGhost: Mitch and Murry, the corporate heads who drive the whole shebang.
