Ned, how many times have you

staged your own sighting?

Can you believe it, it's me!

Hey, watch where you're going,

you dumb bastard.

I'll cut ya.

Wait a tic, you didn't have your

own brand of sandals, did ya?

Yeah, shockless monster footwear.

Look, I'm gonna go over my lines.

I owned a pair of those. They

were terrible.

I like jellies, remember them?

Them some satisfying sandals, I

tell you what.

It's real tough-

So, uh...

- Nice work, nice work.

I like it. -Thanks.

"Life After Myth. " It's um...

It's kinda like "Curb Your

Enthusiasm. "

But substitute Larry David for the

Loch Ness Monster, and then his...

Jeff Garland would be Sasquatch,

you know? Right?

Jeff Garland was Sasquatch in


No, no no. It's not Jeff Gar-

I'm just saying... um...

Uh, it's a "Jeff Garland"


- Oh, oh, oh.

- No, I don't have him.

- That's not Jeff Garland.

- No.

What's, uh, the demo?

I think it's more like, uh, 18

to... 18 to 35, maybe?

You asking me or telling me?

I would say 18 to 35.

To get the jokes, they need

know, uh...

mythological, uh, you know,


They need to know stuff about,

like, Chupacabra, who...

Who, who... Is one of the bad guys in it.

He's the antagonist. He's on a telenovela.

What? He's on a telenovela right


In the hypoth-, in the fictional

world, of the show...

Oh, in your show, he's on a


- In a telonovela.

- Right.

- Show within a show.

- Because he's Spanish.

He is Spanish. It's a, uh, a


Well, technically Puerto Rican

is what I heard.

Let me ask you this,

what's the show about?

I mean, I think...

I kinda already said it. It's

sorta obvious...

It's about myths, you

know, and them feeling...

...like has-beens and

burnouts and them trying to...

...exist in a world where...


Their star had faded or


"Life After Myth. "


What else ya got?

What else, what else do I got?

Another show?

Another concept? Another pitch?


Is this it?

No, this is the only show I

brought into pitch cuz...

This is the one I've been

working on.

- It's, it's, it's been like three

years of my life. -Oh boy.

And you know, but I, I could...

But I could bring something else

in but it would-




- All I'm saying is if he was

into it at all...

- He probably would've given me a

deal, right then and there, right?

- Come on, it was your first


- And probably my last too.

- I think I just... I'm not cut

out for it.

Oliver, you can't do this.

Yeah, obviously. I've just been

told that I suck, so that's clear.

- Can't do it. -I'm not

talking about your talent.

I'm saying you can't just have one

rejection and then think it's over

and go cry in a corner or something.

- Cry in a corner? What are...

Dude, I'm saying you need to have a little more

gumption, a little more faith in yourself.

It takes a long time to get your foot

in the door and you can't just give up.

Got a promotion. That's pretty


At your job job?

Yeah, jobby job.

You know, salary. Which is is good, cuz I've

been hourly guy since I was like a fetus.

Little bit more.

It's full time, Jules, so that usually

means many hours, all the days.

When do you think we're gonna do


We'll still do it. I promise.

We'll carve out time. I just...

I just gotta tighten the screws,

I gotta do the adult thing.

Buckle down.

This starving artist stuff is

for bums.

Huh. Yeah.

Uh, happy for you.


And speaking of bums, if you would please

direct your attention to the left.

Don't look too long.

She looking at me?
