Act 2 Begins
Such a day!
SUCH a day. You're just going to sit there, you aren't going to... come to... greet me... or
And the transition sucked. We have to work on the transition anyway.
The transition really did suck.
Onto the commercial! Go go go!
Such a day!
Such a day. You're just going to- sit there, you aren't going to... come to... greet me... or
That's dogs. Sometimes children. Come on over here.
All the way over there? Really?
A little. You aren't going to turn the sound up?
It's got to prove it's worthy.
Do you know what I want?
You want me.
No, no not you.
Are you sure?
Positive. It's been SUCH a day do you know what I want?
You want a bath.
So badly. Traffic was nutballs. The fluorescents at work were driving me crazy. You want to know the big news?
Someone is stealing lunches out of the refrigerator
Someone is what?
Stealing lunches! From the refrigerator! That's low, right?
Very low. Lunches which are properly marked.
Yes. With a sharpie. In big lettering. Last Friday they took Raul's leftover Chinese: sweet 'n' sour pork, pineapple fried rice. And his Fritos.
And this was all in a bag
He knows the moment he lifts it up before he even opens it
With his name on it in Sharpie
Oh f*** me. With his name on it. And his Fritos.
And this was all in a bag
With his name on it! In sharpie! He knows the moment he lifts it up before he even opens it: why is this so light. Monday Leslie's pizza pocket, Tuesday Robbie's quarter pounder with cheese, and
Excellent. No time for joy. Gibson you were, no, Quincy.
I was... oh. Um:
And. And Michi brought in a homemade chocolate cake for the office, you know, so moist, thick fudge frosting, and she took a piece and I came in right as she was putting it out and I had a piece
And Michael had a slice but 20 minutes later- 20 minutes later! - it was all gone. All gone. All in one day. You know what I mean?
All in one day. Nobody can eat all of that. This isn't someone who can't be bothered to go out. They're just taking it.
They're taking it just to take it.
Right? One of us is a predator.
You don't pack a lunch
No, I eat out. I love a Prêt a Manger. Their sandwiches are so cute, they're so tidily cut and packaged. I like the roast beef with arugula and part, I also like the turkey club sandwich, the bet; it's cold outside, snow outside but I'm tucked into the corner of the Pret cozy as can be with my perfect compact triangle of chicken salad and a hot chocolate and all the rest of the place just gabbling behind me. Hang on, I'm going to add the bath salts, before the tub is done filling. And maybe some bath oil. Oh it's all steamy in here. Hang on... Oh... Oh... Oh... yummy.
Really nice bath.
You want me to bring you a glass of Chablis?
Or mineral water, if you want a mineral water with a squeeze of lemon in it, or lime. Or I could get you a grape Fanta. Or one of those Italian sodas you like. Or a crab-raspberry juice. Or a Diet Coke.
Of course with ice. Why not with ice? The freezer is chock full of ice.
Sounds dreamy. I'll just have a Chablis. Or, no, a Diet Coke. No, a Chablis. God it's been a long day.
Sure thing. How's the bath?
Delicious. Rejuvenating. I feel like a Brand New Woman.
Yeah. Yeah. That's effective.
It's good, right?
No. Common misconception but, no. Quincy, really, do you want to be a Chablis drinker?
Seriously Gibson? At this point, all I care about my imaginary alcohol, is that it is aged.
Do you know what would be great, if we could get that smell. That bath salt smell.
Oh I hate that smell.
If we melted some and heated them up in a pan?
We'll be stuck with that smell all night.
If we just get a hit of it at the beginning.
I hate that smell. I'm not alone. Sam, you hate that bath salt smell, right?
That bath salt smell, when the tub is filling with bath salts.
Wait, what? Because there's a lot going on back here already.
Bath salts, bubble bath, that chemical odor.
Let's say a million just to say and lets say half of which is women let's say a half million so for each remaining woman 400 Diet Cokes which is
Which actually isn't
I was drinking a lot of them. I had them in the stream behind my place. It was hot. That summer.
And a lot of women aren't drinking them at all.
They might just be gone.
Except for the guy in Wichita.
Oh right, right, sorry.
You know it's just as well because that stuff was going to kill you.
No no no.
Don't worry I'm not going to lecture anybody, it's gone now, but that was a very scary sweetener.
We're negotiating for it.
We're negotiating for it? With Primetime Players?
No no, I know, the Reruns, when was that decided?
You were at the Landing and what you don't remember-
Alright wait yes. Yes. We can't-
What don't I remember? I was there.
Okay obviously we can't decide every decision by quorum, but I think we should decide on a category of decision which is decided by quorum. And I think repertoire should fall within that category of decision.
Gibson! Shut the f***!
No. Gibson. Jesus.
But I'm pretty positive that I don't know how much longer we can go on buying lines.
I got that person who wrote for Saturday Night Live.
Oh I remember that.
3 weeks ago. I didn't like the feeling.
Look our episodes are getting pretty good, we're putting together a rather accurate show.
Richard's is having the same problem too, I bet.
Thursday Night held out as long as they could. I think a lot of those guys went into the Shakespeares and some of them just sold themselves outright.
I hear Richard's has a stash of lithiums, and ten of those super powerful camping flashlights, and they're going to do a dusk to dark showing of a Streetcar Named Marge, which a spotlight finale at the end.
It kills me they've got Streetcar.
Our Commercials are excellent.

And I park the car but I don't put on the brake and you zip up your jacket and my fingers start to shake
because when you close that door when you walk away its the end of everything between us my new life will start today
(this is the part where we say goodbye)
yes now I know that I've got to say goodbye
(to everything we are it's the end of everything)
and I keep my cool and I do not cry
(it's the end of everything yes it's the end of everything)
and you close the door and I drive away and I keep my hands steady I didn't ask you to stay
now I'm on the highway and I roll the top down storm lashes my face as I speed from this town
I'm wet with the rain I'm all drenched with tears My body's been shaking for what feels like a hundred years
This is the part where I say Goodbye
(To everything it's the end of everything Yes I know that I've got to say goodbye to everything it's the end of everything) The Thompsons! Duh Duh Duh Duh Duh Duh Duh Duh- Duh duh duh dah!
Me, but that's just because I zagged when I should have been zigging. I have the time
Yeah I'm fine.
On the eye area, like a black eye
Like one of those dogs.
You need something black but with that reddish sheen, like viscous but also
But it's a cartoon I think even just, mud, something black and solid.
But it can't look like mud it's got to look like engine oil. So it's not just that he's dirty but it's that thing like all during the journey, he's clinging to ht underbelly of the car, hot engine oil in his face uh but he holds on, he preserves. Like that's what makes him scary.
I just think, something on a person's face is funny. I think it's better if it's not realistic I think that's just distracting.
Okay this is that discussion
This is a cartoon. THat's what we're doing. A cartoon. You keep trying to turn it into a Drama.
I'm not trying to turn it into a Drama Quincy I'm trying to create a... richer sense of reality and that's part of what makes it funny; things are funniest when they're true. Right?
I just think, if we're giving everything motivations, then where's the power, where's the joy. No motivation, no consequence, that's the point of a cartoon. Where else do we get to experience that, nowhere.
I'm just saying I think we have a chance to like, to like, engage at the same time with like... larger... are we just entertaining them? We have an opportunity here to provide... meaning.
Meaning is everywhere. We get meaning for free, whether we like it or not. Meaningless Entertainment, on the other hand, is actually really hard. Look if you don't like what we're trying to do why don't you go somewhere commensurate with your matchless aesthetic. Go to one of the Dramas. I heard that blonde in The West Wing, the one on the Tulsa circuit is pretty sick. Maybe they'll take you there. It's not like you're really pulling your weight here anyway.
Excellent. I heard that.
