Tom Cruise’s explosive speech, Mission Impossible, left crew members ‘walking on eggs’

‘We are the gold standard. They are back in Hollywood making movies now because of us !! Because they believe in us and WHAT WE ARE DOING !! I’m on the phone with all the fucking studios at night. INSURANCE COMPANIES !! PRODUCERS !! And they are looking at us and using us to make their films. ‘

‘We are creating a thousand jobs, you sons of bitches!’

‘I NEVER WANT TO SEE AGAIN !! EVER!! And if you don’t, you’re fired! If I see you do it again, you’ll leave. And anyone on this team does that, THATS IT! And you too. And you too. Is that you. If you do it again, this is it.

‘No excuses. You can tell people that they are losing their damn houses because our INDUSTRY has been closed. You are not going to put food on their table, or pay for your EDUCATION IN COLLEGE. That’s what I sleep with every night. THE FUTURE OF THIS F *** ING INDUSTRY !! So, I’m sorry, but I’m beyond your excuses. I already said and now I want to and if you don’t, you’re out! ‘

‘Let’s not close this F *** ING MOVIE DOWN !!’

‘I’ts understood? If I see you again, you’re gone. And you too. Then YOU will cost him YOUR job. If I come on set, YOU are gone and YOU are gone. That’s it. Am I clear? Do you understand what I want? Do you understand the responsibility you have? ‘

– Because I will deal with your reason. And if you can’t be reasonable, and if I can’t handle your logic, you’re fired. That’s it. It is. I hope you are here. That’s it. That’s it, guys. ‘

“That’s what I’m thinking about. That’s what I’m doing today. I’m talking to Universal, Paramount, Warner Bros. The movies are going because of us. We close it, it will cost people their damn jobs, their houses, their family – that’s what’s going on. All the way down the line. ‘

‘And I care about you. But if you’re not going to help me, you’re gone. OK? Do you see that stick? How many meters are there? When people are around a computer with *** and walking around here, what are you doing?
