An excerpt …

(he’s late, as usual)

RAMSEY: (shouting) Gary! Anybody scene the fabulous Gary Galloway?

GARY: (poking his head in, smiling) Somebody call me?

MICKEY: I’ve got to do your makeup, Mr. Galloway.

PARIS: And your hair. We’ve only got a few minutes.

GARY: I need a coffee.


GARY: I can’t go on without my coffee. Paragraph 12, section six, under “star requirements.” Hurry, would you?

RAMSEY: I’m the director!

GARY: Oh. Sorry. I keep forgetting. Then at least move quickly.

(some coffee spilled accidentally on his trousers)

GARY: What do I do?

RAMSEY: Take ‘em off!

GARY: Take ‘em off! Quick! (to the other two) Help me! (the three mime removing Gary’s pants) What are you?!!! This is unbelievable! This is humiliating.

RAMSEY: Yeah, and you got funny legs, too. (handing the pants to Mickey) Here! Clean that stain! Quick!

PARIS: Twenty seconds!

GARY: My pants!

RAMSEY: Done yet?

MICKEY: It won’t come out!

RAMSEY: My gosh!

GARY: My pants!

PARIS: There’s the music!

RAMSEY: Get ready to roll!


(the broadcast was a disaster)

GARY: My career is over.

RAMSEY: Hey, things happen.

GARY: How can I show my face in public again?

PARIS: Should be easy. You’ve shown everything else.

GARY: No more awards.

MICKEY: Not for what we saw.

RAMSEY: Look Gary, we’ve got a job opening at the station.

GARY: What job?

RAMSEY: Well, it’s not much … we need somebody to come in at night and sort of clean things up.

GARY: A cleaning boy?

RAMSEY: Well … yeah. Sort of.

GARY: (a pause, then) Do I get a uniform?


GARY: (a pause, then a light in his eyes and he begins rattling) Could it be blue? I’ve got this great idea for this great blue uniform.
