You can’t do it!
Don’t you tell me that! Don’t you ever tell me that! I am the producer of this show! If I didn’t step up, you’re nowhere. I put this thing together on a spit and polish. Look at that! That is a complete fucking fraud and it looks 100% real. It’s the best work I’ve ever done in my life, because it’s so honest. They told me I couldn’t remake Moby Dick from the point of view of the whale for a hundred and fifty million dollars to mess with… and I’m not even talkin’ about the video. I made this lame turkey fly. I did it, pure Hollywood. Tell you right now, for once in my life I will not be pissed on. You hear me? I want … I want the credit. I want the credit! Take care. Good bye!
