ALL
Every movie's a circus
On the wire without a net

JOANNA
Coffee?

MYRON
I'm up too early
Shooting at seven
I gotta go

ALL
Movies

BOY
What's wrong?

GIRL
Can't get a screen test
Don't you hate it
When a yes-man says no?

ALL
Movies

GIRL
Good part?

BOY
I'm a policeman
"Hands up, punk!"
That's all I say

ACTOR
First time you've worked on the lot there

ACTRESS
I must say R.K.O. are O.K.

ALL
Movies

BOY
Then what?

GIRL
He pressed a button
Out of the wall
Fell a four-poster bed

ALL
Movies

MYRON
Busy?

JOANNA
They shot my screenplay

MYRON
Isn't that great?

JOANNA
No, they shot the thing dead

ALL
Every movie's a circus
On the wire without a net

BOY
Lonely?

GIRL
That's how I like it.

BOY
Can't you be nice?

GIRL
Why? We're not on the set.

ARTIE
Hey, Joe
What are you, slumming?

JOE
Here for a meeting

ARTIE
This time of night?

ALL
Movies

JOE
Yeah, it's some studio smartass
You know I'm famous for being polite

ALL
Movies

ARTIE
Guess what?
I'm getting married

JOE
Congratulations

ARTIE
She'll be right back

ALL
Movies

ARTIE
Fact is, we were just leaving
She's been stood up by some uppity hack

ALL
Movies

JOE
Married. Who would have thought it?
Why don't you look happy?
Come on, be brave

ALL
Movies

ARTIE
It's this movie I'm shooting

JOE
You first assistant?

ARTIE
More like a slave

ALL
Every movie's a circus

ARTIE
But this is a circus movie as well
Problems, nothing but problems
Animals, actors
Two kinds of hell

ALL
Every movie's a circus
On the wire without a net

BETTY
Well hello, Mr. Gillis

ARTIE
You two have met?

JOE
I'm the uppity hack

ARTIE
And she's the studio smartass

BETTY
What's going on here?

BARMAN
Artie, they're calling you back.

BETTY
I just reread "Blind Windows"
It needs some real re-working, of course
If we fixed up the opening

ARTIE
Call up the wrangler
Pay off the horse
