WOMAN:
Danny, don't splash me!

[LAUGHS]

Stop. I'm getting wet.

-MAN:
That's the idea.

-[WOMAN GIGGLING]

-WOMAN:
Stop it.

-Hi, sweetie.

MAN:
Oh, come on!

Come on,

let's go back to my place.

WOMAN:
Maybe we should wait.

MAN:
Wait, schmait!

These two people

are not married,

and they're going

to have premarital sex.

You could go to hell for that.

All right, that's it.

You're not allowed

to watch this show anymore.

It inspires urges that are...

-wrong and bad.

-WOMAN:
Let's go to your place.

MAN:
Groovy!

You could go to hell

for those urges.

In hell, there is a fire

that will lap at you

for all eternity.

You gotta decide...

Do you want to go to heaven,

or do you wanna go to hell?

-[ORGAN PLAYING]

-[PANTING]

-[MAN GRUNTING]

Yeah. You a bad girl? Huh?

You a bad girl?

-I'm a bad girl.

-Yeah!

You're a dirty little slut, huh?

Dirty little slut,

-yeah.

-Um, yes.

Say it. Say you're a dirty slut.

-I'm a dirty slut.

-Yeah, you're a dirty slut!

[GROANING]

Oh. Hmm.

Hmm. Hmm.

Okay.

Oh.

[SIGHS]

Mm.

Why do you always call me

a dirty little slut?

Ah.

Come on. You love it.

I like having sex on a bed.

Is this because maybe

you're, uh, you're jealous

that I'm more successful

than you?

-[DOOR KNOCKING]

-MAN:
Mr. Brock,

we're ready for you onstage.

Peter, you have been in one

great movie after another.

Walk me through your process.

How do you prepare for this?

I tell you,

I play a lot of action heroes.

Um...

and in those-- in those movies,

I have heavy artillery.

I have guns,

okay?

I have a gun on me right now.

Not physically,

in the physical sense.

I put it on the table earlier.

It's right here.

Imagine it, okay?

-It's an emotional gun for me.

-Right.

This gun's here...

all the time.

Sometimes I put it in my pocket,

sometimes I put it in my...

That's how I prepare.

I'm always ready.

I'm always the action hero.

Bang! Not real.

But real.

-MAN:
Uh--

-I'll do it.

Don't do it.

I won't do it.

You've been doing this

for years, and years and years.

Certainly, you've heard some

of the talk on the streets.

People say that Peter is

just a tough guy,

a hard guy to work with.

How do you respond to that?

Yeah, Napoleon died exiled

on an island of-- of leprosy.

That's-- that's true.

-That's history.

-MAN:
Yeah.

Jesus died on the cross,

you know?

Um, visionaries die

sometimes quicker

than non-visionaries.

You're a visionary?

PETER:
Thank you.

But I'm not saying--

-Oh, you're asking. I think...

-It was a question.

...um, I think that's up

for kinda the press to decide,

and I think that bloggers,

and people

who write physical magazines

have said I was a-- a visionary.

People have--

have tweeted me about that.

You know,

you made Bros Before Hos.

Why don't you make

the female version?

I-- I wrote a great script.

It's called Chicks Before Dicks.

-Did you read it?

-Uh, look, Boo Boo,

you have all the talent.

You really do.

And I'm the one

that discovered you

and gave you

your big break, right?

-Yeah.

-Yeah, I promoted you

-to be my D girl, right?

-I want to be a writer.

I know you want to be a writer,

and in due time.

Really. Your writing is great.

It's fresh and very unique.

But you're bogging yourself down

talking about stupid shit.

You know what? You--

Nobody wants to hear about

women's stories, all right?

If you want to make a film,

you got to talk about a man.

You gotta write about a man.

That's what you have to do.

Well, can you read my script?

It's called The Year of My Yoni.

It's about a woman
