Russell: Look. I don’t know how you two guys feel but we would really like to be in business with you.
George: Well, we would like to be in business. Let’s do business. We’ll have some business. Let’s have business.
Jerry: We would love to be in business. We’ll do business. We’re in business. It’s… it’s business. This is business.
Stu: Would it be possible to get a-a-a copy of ‘La Cocina’?
Jerry: Your off-Broadway play.
George: Oh, oh. Uh, you know. It’s the damndest thing. I, uh, I moved recently and my files, pfff, disappeared. Now, I-I don’t know if they fell off the truck or if there was some sort of foul play but let me tell you something. I’m not through with that moving company.
Jay: Hi, Jay Crespi.
George: Uh, C-R-E-S-P-I?
Jay: That’s right.
George: I’m unbelievable at spelling last names. Give me a last name.
Jay: Mm, I’m not-
George: Huh? All right, fine.
Stu: First of all, that was a terrific show.
Jerry: Oh thank you very much.
Stu: And basically, I just wanted to let you know that we’ve been discussing you at some of our meetings and we’d be very interested in doing something.
Jerry: Really? Wow.
Stu: So, if you have any idea for like a TV show for yourself, well, we’d just love to talk about it.
Jerry: I’d be very interested in something like that.
Stu: Well, here, uh, why don’t you give us a call and maybe we can develop a series.
Jerry: Okay. Great. Thanks.
Stu: It was very nice meeting you.
Jerry: Thank you.
Jay: Nice meeting you.
Jerry: Nice meeting you.
George: What do you think it is?
Jay: It’s like a… white discoloration. (we understand now why a sitcom needs so many producers)
Casting Director: O.K. guys, are we ready to start?
Jerry: Yeah, where is Russell? I thought he was gonna be here.
Stu: Oh you know I don’t know. I saw him in the hall this morning, I said hello to him. He walked right past me.
Jay: He must be worried about the fall schedule.
Stu: Ah, it’s a real bear.
George: Yeah. So what’s going on? We’re gonna shoot the pilot and then it’s gonna be on TV the following week?
Stu: Yeah. Right.
George: What happened to the raisins?
Jay: Yeah, there was a box of raisins there!
George: Did he just steal the raisins?
Stu: You think he stole them?
