Humble is good.
Your self-esteemtook a beating,
but that'swhat brought outyour true talent.
Yes. You land hard when youfall from the top, right?
I used to be king here.
Now I'm nothingbut a mere peasant.
Or at best,a... a viscount.
I think "peasant"is about right.
Duke. On this set,I'm at least a duke.
My extensive actingrésumé dwarfs that ofthe average bit player.
Yes, that's true.But remember,
it's that kind of actingthat ruined you.
Or maybe archduke.
Whichever one getsto fire the director.
Oh, Lord, here we go.
Look, please justshow some humility--
like the other daywhen everything seemed hopeless.
Better yet, I'll whiptheir emotions into a frenzy
(melodramatically):by taking a dramatic...
Actors to the set!
Okay, here's the scene.
Calculon learns hiswife is unfaithful,
whines about howpathetic he is,
kills himself--laugh, laugh, laugh--go to commercial.
Oh, Calculon,I wish you had never escaped
from those brutalcrab fishermen.
I want you to knowI didn't wait for you,
not even for one day.
Then I supposethe honorable thing
would be to kill myself...
if I weren'tthe legendary Calculon,
the greatest acting unitof all time!
This show is about me!
And it always has been!
Now, find theco-executive hackwho wrote this drivel
and tell him I want37 more climactic speeches
That was terrible!
Just stick to the script.And if you don't get it
on the second take,you're fired.
Let's take five, people.
I-I've never heard that phrase--what does that mean?
They want youto do it again.
