ALL FOUR
Let's have lunch

JOE (spoken)
Yeah, I had an appointment with Mr. Sheldrake

JONES (spoken)
Name?

JOE (spoken)
Gillis. Joseph Gillis

JONES (spoken)
All right, sir, you know your way?

JOE (spoken)
Yeah

FIRST FINANCEMAN
We want the keys to your car

SECOND FINANCEMAN
You're way behind with the payments

FIRST FINANCEMAN
Don't give us any fancy footwork

SECOND FINANCEMAN
Give us the keys

JOE
I only wish I could help
I loaned it to my accountant
He has an important client down in Palm Springs
Felt like shooting the breeze

FIRST FINANCEMAN
Are you telling us you walked here?

JOE
I believe in self-denial
I'm in training for the priesthood

SECOND FINANCEMAN
O.K., wise guy, three hundred bucks

FIRST FINANCEMAN
Or we're taking the car

SECOND FINANCEMAN
We have a court order

JOE
I love it when you talk dirty

SAMMY
Bless you, Joseph

JOE
That you, Sammy?

SAMMY
How do you like my harem?

JOE
How come you get such lousy breaks?

SAMMY
One learns to grin and bear 'em

GIRLS
This is the biggest film ever made

JOE
What're you playing?

ANITA
Temple virgin

DAWN
Handmaiden to Delilah

JOE
Let's have lunch
Gotta run

You've got to find me a job
I'm way behind with my payments
I thought you were meant to be my agent
I need some work

MORINO
I only wish I could help
This town is dead at the moment
There's been this slowdown in production

JOE
Who is this jerk?

MORINO
He's my wunderkind from Broadway
Every major studio wants him

YOUNGER MAN
Playing one against the other

JOE
What I need is three hundred bucks

MORINO
Maybe what you need is a new agent

JOE
Hello, Artie

ARTIE
Joe, you bastard!

JOE
You never call me any more

ARTIE
Found a cuter dancing partner
How are things?

JOE
Not so great

ARTIE
Will this help?
Twenty bucks?

JOE
Thanks, you're a pal

ALL (spoken)
Good morning, Mr. DeMille

SHELDRAKE
This is Sheldrake
Bring some water
Get me that shithead Nolan

Nolan, sweetheart
Great to talk
This draft is so much brighter
You're the best
Even so
I've hired another writer

SECRETARY (spoken)
Mr. Gillis

SHELDRAKE (spoken)
Joe! What the fuck brings you here?

JOE (spoken)
You wanted to see me

SHELDRAKE (spoken)
I did? What about?

JOE (spoken)
"Bases Loaded." It's an outline for a baseball picture

SHELDRAKE (spoken)
So, pitch

JOE (spoken)
It's about a rookie shortstop. He's batting .347.
The kid was once mixed up in a holdup. Now he's trying to go straight

SHELDRAKE  (spoken)
Wait a minute. Wait a minute. I think I have read this
Somebody, bring in what we've got on...

JOE (spoken)
"Bases Loaded."

SHELDRAKE  (spoken)
..."Bases Loaded."

JOE (spoken)
They're pretty hot for it over at Twentieth

SHELDRAKE  (spoken)
Good!

JOE (spoken)
But can you see Ty Power as a shortstop?

ENSEMBLE
Let's have lunch

BETTY (spoken)
Here's that "Bases Loaded" material, Mr. Sheldrake
I made a two-page synopsis for you,
but I wouldn't bother to read it

SHELDRAKE (spoken)
Why not?

BETTY (spoken)
It's just a rehash of something
that wasn't very good to begin with

SHELDRAKE (spoken)
Meet Mr. Gillis. He wrote it

ENSEMBLE
We should talk

SHELDRAKE (spoken)
This is Miss Kramer

BETTY (spoken)
Schaefer. Betty Schaefer. And right now,
I'd like to crawl into a hole and pull it in after me

JOE (spoken)
If I could be of any help...

BETTY (spoken)
I'm sorry, Mr. Gillis, I couldn't see the point of it

JOE (spoken)
What sort of material do you suggest? James Joyce? Dostoyevsky?

BETTY (spoken)
I think pictures should at least try to say a little something

JOE (spoken)
I see you're one of the message kids
I expect you'd have turned down "Gone With the Wind"

SHELDRAKE (spoken)
No, that was me

ENSEMBLE
Gotta run

BETTY (spoken)
And I guess I was disappointed
I've read some of your other work
and I thought you had some real talent

JOE (spoken)
Yeah, that was last year. This year I felt like eating

BETTY (spoken)
Well, I'm sorry, Mr. Gillis

SHELDRAKE (spoken)
Thank you, Miss Kramer
Well, looks like Zanuck's got himself a baseball picture

ENSEMBLE
We should talk
Gotta run
Let's have lunch

JOE
You've got to give me some work
I'll take whatever's on offer
There must be some shit that needs a rewrite
Throw it my way

SHELDRAKE
I only wish I could help
There's no spare shit at the moment
Remember the greatest writers starved in garretts
Didn't care about pay

JOE
Are you trying to be funny?

SHELDRAKE
I believe in self-denial
Gives a man some moral backbone

JOE
Can you loan me three hundred bucks?

SHELDRAKE
I'm sorry, Gillis. Good-bye

JOE
I just love Hollywood
