(Open on a man in scrubs, stepping up to a bank teller. He looks a little banged up)
Teller: How are you, Dr. Bellow?
Dr. Bellow: Fine.
Anncr. (VO): Before there's money, there's work. (Freeze. Rewind. Stop at the beginning of the man's day. He opens the door to his waiting room)
Dr. Bellow: Morning! Who's first?
(Cut to the waiting room—a cacophony of unruly animals)
Dr. Bellow: OK.
(Cut to him examining a panting St. Bernard, addressing the owner)
Dr. Bellow: No problem, don't you worry about it, we get it all the time, I'll have you outta here in a jiffy.
(Cut to him being attacked by a duck)
Dr. Bellow: Ah!
(Cut to him with a bandage on his nose, addressing the owner)
Dr. Bellow: OK, thanks. You're done.
(Cut to him with a ferret climbing up his arm)
Dr. Bellow: Has he adapted well to urban life?
(Cut to the ferret trying to bite off his finger. Cut to him apprehensively approaching a small dog. The room is getting more and more disheveled)
Dr. Bellow: So what are the symptoms?
(Cut to the small dog growling, latching onto his coat)
Dr. Bellow: He's got some spunk in him, doesn't he? (Cut to him with a llama, really banged up now, addressing the owner)
Dr. Bellow: What can I do for you?
(Cut to him and his assistant struggling with the skittish llama, knocking over equipment)
Dr. Bellow: C'mon, buddy.
(He falls, out of the frame)
(Cut to LaSalle logo and tag: "The bank that works.")
Anncr. (VO): LaSalle. The bank that appreciates your hard work.
