Actually he wants EVERYTHING else. In the new reality comedy series "The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi," Robert balances the day-to-day antics of his hectic creative services business with the serious pursuit of his completely insane and over-the-top dreams such as getting his own TV channel, his own shopping mall and his own ice cream flavor named after him.
