Good Morning, gentlemen.

James: He makes me want to be a better man.
Moving on. What attracted you to filmmaking. Who are your influences?
Andrew: Greta Garbo and Monroe. Dietrich and DiMaggio. Marlon Brando, Jimmy Dean. On the cover of a magazine. Grace Kelly, Harlow Jean, Picture of a beauty queen. Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rodgers danced on air. They had style, they had grace. Rita Hayworth gave good face. Lauren, Katherine, Lana too…
James: Bette Davis, we love you.
Madonna lyrics. Very funny.
Andrew Funny how? Like I’m a clown. I amuse you. I make you laugh?
No. It was just funny how you used the quote.
James: What is your major malfunction, numbnuts?
I’m sorry I think you’ve misunderstood me.
Andrew: What we have here is a failure to communicate.
Okay. Let’s change the subject. You’ve recently been accused of plagiarism. What were your immediate thoughts when you heard the allegation?
Andrew: Houston. We have a problem.
James: Fasten your seatbelts, this is going to be a bumpy ride.
Many online writers have condemned your actions but you’ve also had some support.
Andrew: I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.
Excuse me but so far in this interview you’ve just been quoting film scripts and song lyrics. Do you have any original thoughts of your own?
James: Why so serious?
You just did it again, that was from The Dark Knight.
Andrew: Well. Nobody’s perfect.
And that was Some like it Hot. Why don’t you speak your own mind. Tell the truth?
James: YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!
Oh screw it. This interview is terminated.
Andrew: I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!
Will you please leave.
Andrew: In case I don’t see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night.
James: Hasta la vista, baby.
