that's on every night

between those "Fixodent"

commercials, right?" That shut him up.

Hey, Steve.

Hey, Steve.

Hey, guys.

- Gloria, that necklace is you.

- Thanks, doll.

I got some new merchandise.

For your girlfriend.

- As soon as I get this piece done.

- How is it coming?

- Horrible.

- Uh-huh.

It's the fundamental nature

of the magazine, Lew.

- Mallory, can I get some copies?

- Sure.

People want photographs,

they can buy Newsweek.

They do buy Newsweek.

And Time,

and US News & World Report.

And our losses are a joke.

Let me guess. He's on you again

about a redesign.

- Yeah, cover page and graphics.

- And photographs.

Let me remind you Steve,

this magazine hasn't changed

its look since the ' s.

How is it?

It's good.

- You hate it.

- No, it's good, It's a little rough.

No, it's the worst thing

I ever wrote. It's horrible.

If you guys don't help me with it,

I'm not even going to send it in.

- When is it due?

- Tomorrow.


I may have to kill myself.

I mean, The New York Times


Will you guys

help me with it, please?
