If you won't do it for me,|do it for my father.

You worked together a long time.|You had a real bond.

Your father was a psychotic.

-You spoke at his funeral.|-I loved him. You, I can't stand.

Do this for me. Please.

The studio will go under.|I haven't had a hit in almost two years!

I have the last Eddie and Gwen movie ever made|and I can't get my hands on it!

Tell me what you want.|I'll tell you what I want.

I want only one thing.

If people think Eddie and Gwen|are back together, they'll see the movie.

-Make that happen.|-That'll be easy.

Just make it look like it could happen.

She has a restraining order against him,|and he flipped out.

He's living in some nut hut|in the mountains.

I don't care! I need Eddie and Gwen|back together again, smiling and happy!

-We can sell the shit out of it.|-And the Spaniard?

Unless I get a script called|I Schtupped Castro, I don't know.
