IT'S NOT A SUGGESTIONOF WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.

IT'S AN ACTUALITY,IT'S A COMMITMENT.

IN LOS ANGELES,YOU WANT TO MEET SOMEONE

YOU GOT TO CALL 11 PEOPLE

TELL THEM ALL "I'LL MEET YOUAT THE MOVIE THEATER"

AND MAYBE ONEOR TWO WILL SHOW UP

AND ONE BY ACCIDENT COULD HAPPENTO BE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

THIS IS WHAT LOS ANGELESIS LIKE.

IF YOU'RE NOT THERE, IN NEW YORK

YOU MUST EXPLAIN TO THE PERSONWHY YOU WEREN'T THERE.

BECAUSE THE GUYS ARE GOING,"BARRY, WHAT HAPPENED?

I'M STANDING THERE THINKINGYOU DIED, WHAT IS GOING ON?"

AND YOU MUST EXPLAIN,YOU GIVE AN EXCUSE.

IN THE MIDWEST, OR ANYWHERE ELSE

IF BILLY JOE McALLISTERIS NOT AT DINNER THE NEXT NIGHT

IT'S BECAUSEBILLY JOE McALLISTER JUMPED OFF

THE TALLAHASSEE BRIDGE.

AND IN FACT HE DID JUMP OFFTHE TALLAHASSEE BRIDGE.

IN LOS ANGELES,THERE'S NO EVENT TOO IMPORTANT

WHERE SOMEONESTILL WON'T SHOW UP.

"DREW, TOMORROW IT'S REALLYIMPORTANT YOU PICK ME UP AT 6:00

BECAUSE I'M HAVING OPEN-HEARTSURGERY AT CEDAR-SINAI."

FOUR DAYS LATERYOU FINALLY HEAR FROM DREW

IT'S LIKE, "DREW, I HADTO TAKE A CAB TO CEDAR-SINAI.
