Season 1: Episode 4: Intellectual Property

Studio/Control Room
Casey: And Tanana, who obviously can't see the end-zone marker under the virgin snow, breaks into his touchdown dance on the 10 yard line. Only to be given a geography lesson by lineman Marvin Watkins. That's an incredibly embarrassing moment for any professional athlete, so when we come back, we're going to show it to you a couple more times. If only so that I can keep saying 'virgin snow.'
Dan: Stick around for more Sports Night coming up after this.
Dave: We're out.
Natalie: Two minutes back.
Dana: You know what, we're going to be 15 seconds short on the Bucs/Pacers.
Natalie: Jeremy, can you get Dan something interesting about Milwaukee.
Jeremy: I can tell you that it is not the capital of Wisconsin.
Dana: And while that may be true, I need it to be about the team, and, oh yeah, I need it to be interesting.
Jeremy: I said for starters.
Dana: I got it.
Natalie: Has anybody else noticed that Casey's been flinching a lot tonight?
Kim: He's been doing it for a couple of nights.
Dana: Flinching?
Chris: Like a tic.
Will: It's a flinch.
Dana: Casey, why are you flinching?
Casey: I'm not flinching.
Dana: Not now, but before.
Chris: It's like a tic.
Will: It's a flinch.
Dana: A tic or a flinch, what's going on?
Casey: There's a fly in the studio.
Dana: A fly?
Casey: Yes, a big one. It's been in here about 3 days now.
Dana: Dave, there's a fly in the studio?
Dave: I'm not seeing it.
Dana: Casey says there's a fly.
Dave: (to Chris) Is there a fly in our studio?
Chris: I'm not hearing anything.
Dave: (to Dana) There ain't no fly.
Dana: Casey, there's no fly.
Casey: Dana, there is a fly in the studio the size of a bald eagle. And every time he buzzez my head on a fly by, it sounds like a sound check at a Black Sabbath concert. You're not picking this up?
Dana: Dan, is there a fly in the studio?
Dan: Let him work through it.
(Isaac enters Control Room)
Dana: Isaac, I see you're smiling and holding a ratings book, both at the same time. What do we know?
Isaac: We're not number one, we're not number two. But we picked up a point and a half with men 18 to 49 and took it evenly from Fox and Bristol. Plus, I'm always smiling this time of night. You know why?
Dana: Double chivas on the rocks?
Isaac: That's right.
Natalie: You hear that? We're still number three.
Jeremy: Here we go. The attendance at tonight's game, 11,323, is exactly the same as the population of Hoisington, Kansas.
Dana: (deep breath) Ok Dan, here's the thing. You're going to be 15 seconds short on the Bucs/Pacers game. I have two options for you. Option one is that the attendance at tonight's game, 11, 323 turns out to be exactly the same as the population of...
Jeremy: Hoisington, Kansas.
Dana: Hoisington, Kansas.
Dan: And option two?
Dana: Talk slower.
(Casey starts flinching, waving his arms by his face, taking out his earpiece, waving his script around and looking intently for the fly)
Dan: Boy, it's almost hard to believe we're in third place

*C Break*

News Room:
Casey: Oh yeah, I'm in pain. See, this is pain.
Dan: Elliot, can you get me a recruiting file on Conference USA?
Casey: Very sure I would call this pain.
Elliot: Ah, just football or...
Dan: Football/Basketball
Casey: This is a pain that's gonna last well into the new year.
Kim: What happened?
Dan: Not important.

Dan & Casey's office:
Casey: They told me if I took care of my body, my body would take care of me.
Dan: (into news room) I need the last three years!
Casey: I took care of my body and my body just deserted me at that moment.
Dan: No, your brain deserted you. Your body is fine.
Casey: I have a broken ankle. You're not concerned I have a broken ankle?
Dan: Where does it hurt?
Casey: In my ankle, Danny. It hurts in my ankle.
Dan: You shouldn't move it.
Casey: I can't move it.
Dan: Well then you're all set.
(phone rings
Casey: Hey if that's Dana, I'm not here.
Dan: Why would it be Dana?
Casey: I'm saying that it could be Dana.
Dan: It could be a lot of people. Hello? It's Dana.
Casey: Hey, I'm not here.
Dan: Yeah, he's right here. What do you need? No he's not flinching or anything he seems fine.
Casey: I'm not fine, I have a broken ankle.
Dan: We got that off the wire.
Casey: Hey, tell her that I have a broken ankle.
Dan: Casey says he has a broken ankle.
Casey: Yeah, now tell her it hurts.
Dan: He says it hurts.
Casey: Okay, now make this part sound dignified and heroic...
Dan: Because he kicked a fire hydrant on his way back from lunch.
Casey: (stands)Would you stop talking about it now?
Dan: 'Cause he just found out that you were going to Vermont this weekend with Gordon.
Casey: That is not why! That is not why!(waves arms back and forth)
Dan: Yeah, he's walking around pretty good now. See you at the afternoon rundown.
Casey: Well thanks for the teamwork.
Dan: No problem.
Casey: Did she say anything?
Dan: She said you shouldn't kick fire hydrants.
Casey: I didn't see the fire hydrant.
Dan: What were you trying to kick?
Casey: You. I was trying to kick you?
Dan: Why?
Casey: You've known for awhile now that she's been seeing this guy, Gordon.
Dan: Yes.
Casey: And you didn't tell me about it.
Dan: Right.
Casey: Why?
Dan: I thought you might be upset. I can see now I was wrong.
Casey: Look, I'm not upset, all right. I've known Dana for 15 years. She just does this thing from time to time.
Dan: You mean have a personal life?
Casey: Yeah. She just does it to make me jealous.
Dan: I don't think it's gonna work, do you?
Casey: My behavior is not motivated by jealousy, Danny. This is not jealousy.
Dan: What is your behavior motived by?
Casey: It's an emotion I'm having a difficult time putting my finger on at the moment, but uh, it will come to me.
Kim: Dan, I just got a call from a woman named Malory Moss in Business Affairs. She needs to talk to you about some accounting.
Dan: All right, tell her it will have to wait. Casey and I are doing some work right now.
Casey: (putting ankle on desk) Ankle pain, ankle pain, ankle pain.
Dan: I'll be right there! (exits)

Editing Room:
Dana: You know something, I can't think of the last time I had a good idea.
Natalie: This segment's a good idea.
Dana: It's not a really good idea. It's a fine idea. It's a regular idea. You have a lot of good ideas. I find myself saying "Natalie's got a good idea."
Natalie: But you also find yourself saying, "Natalie if you screw that up again, I'll set you on fire."
Dana: That's true, too, and yet it's the good idea thing that I'm focusing on.
Natalie: Do you like this shot here?
Dana: All I'm looking at is the Pepsi sign.
Natalie: Moving on.
Dana: What was the last good idea you had?
Natalie: When I got up this morning, I decided not to stick my hand in the blender.
Dana: That's what I mean.
Natalie: How about this?
Dana: That's good.
Natalie: I think the way that you're handling the Casey situation is very good.
Dana: The Casey situation?
Natalie: I'm calling it The Casey Situation.
Dana: It's not a situation.
Natalie: It's a bit of a situation.
Dana: It's not at all a situation.
Natalie: I've already named it.
Dana: You know, from like the second that Casey and Lisa split up, everyone in this office is convinced that I have a strategy for getting Casey to fall in love with me.
Natalie: You're wrong. We knew you didn't have a strategy and we're glad you've finally come up with something.
Dana: I have not come up with something.
Natalie: Well at least you're asking for help.
Dana: Natalie, I am not employing a strategy.
Natalie: You're going to Vermont for the weekend with Gordon.
Dana: Yes I am.
Natalie: And you bought new lingerie.
Dana: Yes I did.
Natalie: And you went out of your way to make sure Casey knew you bought new lingerie.
Dana: I did not!
Natalie. Right. That was me.
Dana: Natalie!
Natalie: Well, let's get this show on the road already, huh?
Dana: There's no show and there's no road.
Natalie: You're going to Vermont with Gordon and new lingerie.
Dana: Yes, because I choose to and there's nothing sinister about it. I like Gordon. And I like Vermont. So I am going with Gordon to Vermont. And I'm taking new lingerie for me. This is for me.
Natalie: Well, I gotta say, you got Casey right where you want him.

Office of Business Affairs:
Dan enters office
Dan: Hi, excuse me.
Mallory: Oh hi.
Dan: I'm Dan Rydell, they said you wanted to see me.
Mallory: Yes, yes I do. Hi, I'm Mallory Moss. I just started this week, so please pardon the mess.
Dan: That's fine. Look, there's a revolving door here on Business Affairs and I go through this with all the new people. My out of town expense sheets tend to be a little unusual.
Mallory: Yes, I noticed, but that's not the problem.
Dan: What's the problem?
Mallory: During your broadcast on September 5th, you sang Happy Birthday to your partner, Casey McCall.
Dan: Yeah, but I can explain that. Wait, it was his birthday. Why do I have to explain that?
Mallory: You sang Happy Birthday on the air.
Dan: Dana cleared it.
Mallory: Who's Dana?
Dan: Dana Whitaker, the producer of the show.
Mallory: Oh yes. Well, my predecessor didn't clear it.
Dan: Who's your predecessor?
Mallory: Marty Shienbaum.
Dan: Who's Marty Sheinbaum?
Mallory: My predecessor.
Dan: Look, I don't have a whole lot of time...
Mallory: Listen, I think it's sweet that you and your partner sing to each other on television. Others may thing that it's vaguely gay, but I disagree.
(Dan looks at woman sitting behind him, who smiles meekly)
Dan: Thank you.
Mallory: Nonetheless, you can't do it anymore.
Dan: Why not?
Mallory: It's against the law?
Dan: It's against the law to be vaguely gay?
Mallory: It's against the law to sing Happy Birthday on television.
Dan: That doesn't sound quite right to me.
Mallory: It is.
Dan: You went to law school and everything, right?
Mallory: Yeah.
Dan: You took the bar?
Mallory: Three times.
Dan: It's against the law to sing Happy Birthday on television.
Mallory: Federal Copyright law.
Dan: Happy Birthday is protected material?
Mallory: Yes.
Dan: Who holds the copyright to Happy Birthday?
Mallory: The representatives of Mildred and Patty Hill.
Dan: Mildred and Patty Hill.
Mallory: The authors.
Dan: The authors?
Mallory: They wrote it.
Dan: They wrote the song.
Mallory: Did you think that song just happened?
Dan: Well, yeah.
Mallory: Huh. Well, it didn't.
Dan: Live and learn.
Mallory: Yes indeed.
Dan: Would they be happy with an autographed hat?
Mallory: Yes they would!
Dan: Great. (gets up to leave)
Mallory: Along with $2,500.
Dan: I'm sorry?
Mallory: They've billed the network $2,500.
Dan: $2,500 to sing Happy Birthday?
Mallory: Yes.
Dan: Ouch.
Mallory: Intellectual property, droit moral, fair use, royalty structure -- these things may not mean anything to you, but I assure you they mean a great deal to me and they meant a great deal to my predecessor.
Dan: Marty Sheinbaum.
Mallory: Marty Sheinbaum.
(Dan exits, then sticks his head back into office)
Dan: You know what? From now on I am only singing songs from the public domain.
Mallory: That'll teach 'em.
Dan: I'm not kidding.
Mallory: Go knock 'em dead.

News Room:
Casey: Jeremy.
Jeremy: Right here.
Casey: Would you follow me please?

Dan & Casey's office:
Jeremy: What's up?
Casey: I hold here in my hand a tape of last night's show. I will put it in the VCR, we shall fast-forward to the parts where I flinch, and you will see in the tape that there is a fly.
Jeremy: I don't think that this really is necessary.
Casey: You will bear witness. You will bear witness and you will tell everyone that I am not crazy.
Jeremy: I don't think anyone thinks your crazy.
Casey: I think they do.
Jeremy: I'm sure you're wrong.
Casey: Well, it feels like everyone thinks I'm crazy.
Jeremy: I have a lot of experience with that feeling.
Casey: I'm sure you do.
Jeremy: Yes.
Casey: Okay, right here, right when we come back from this scene, you're gonna see clear as can be that there is a fly right here. (Casey flinches noticeably on the tape. Casey leans in closer, while Jeremy continues to watch) Where the hell is the fly?
Jeremy: Well, why don't I just tell everybody that I saw the fly?
Casey: This isn't in my head.
Jeremy: Of course it's not.
Casey: No seriously.
Jeremy: I know.
Casey: There's a fly in there.
Jeremy: Maybe he only makes himself visible to you.
Casey: He only makes himself visible to me?
Jeremy: Like the rabbit in 'Harvey.'
Casey: No, this isnt' like the rabbit in 'Harvey'.
Jeremy: Of course not.
Casey: No, seriously.
Jeremy: I know.
Casey: Jeremy...
Jeremy: I'm just saying whether it's there you're not, you're making me believe it's there.
Casey: It's there.
Jeremy: I believe it.
Casey: Good.
Jeremy: Can I say something?
Casey: Yeah.
Jeremy: Can I speak candidly for a moment?
Casey: That's fine.
Jeremy: 'Cause I'm the new guy here and I don't want to overstep my bounds.
Casey: You're not.
Jeremy: I'm not overstepping my bounds?
Casey: Your bounds are fine. Don't worry about your bounds.
Jeremy: It just seems to me, what with kicking fire hydrants and your on-air hallucinations, that you've got your head turned around pretty good.
Casey: I'm not having hallucinations. The fire hydrant got in my way and there's nothing wrong with my head.
Jeremy: Good.
Casey: I'm not obsessing about Dana.
Jeremy: Dana?
Casey: Yeah. Dana's my friend, Jeremy, she's been my friend for 15 years.
Jeremy: Oh that?
Casey: Yeah.
Jeremy: Oh, as far as Vermont is concerned, it's my understand that the weekend is almost entirely about sex.
Casey: (pauses) Well that makes me feel, god, so much better.
Jeremy: Good. (gets up to leave)
Casey: I'm not interested in Dana, I don't care about her weekend plans.
Jeremy: Good.
Casey: No, seriously.
Jeremy: Call me if you find the fly. (exits)

*C break*

Conference Room:
Through beginning of this scene, everyone is throwing a baseball around the room
Elliot: You know, Landingham's getting dumped. It's either going to be Biselli or, the guy from Iowa State.
Natalie: Kitner.
Elliot: Yeah.
Kim: It's not gonna be Kitner.
Dan: It's gonna be Biselli, but either way, it's time to get this on the air.
Dana: You have sources?
Dan: We have a healthy hunch.
Isaac: You have sources?
Kim: Not for retribution.
Dana: Get someone to go on the record. That's when we'll get it on the air.
Dan: No one understands the value of a healthy hunch.
Isaac: Our lawyers understand the value of a healthy hunch. It's $400 and hour, plus court costs.
Dana: Get someone to go on the record. Now, what do we know about the phantom fly? (throws ball to Casey)
Casey: (pointedly sets ball down) It's not a phantom.
Dana: Fine.
Casey: It's not a phantom fly. It's a real fly.
Dana: We believe you.
Casey: I'm like Tippi Hedren in there.
Dana: Nonetheless, the flinching...
Chris: It's like a tic.
Will: It's a flinch.
Casey: Listen to me. There is a fly in the studio and this is not a normal sized fly, it is a jumbo fly. It has made a habit now of flying into my monitors at a great velocity. You would think at this velocity, that it would blow apart on impact, but apparently this fly has some sort of... protective coating that allows it to come right back at me.
Isaac: Protective coating?
Casey: Yes.
Dana: Does the fly have any other special powers?
Casey: No. Well, Jeremy thinks it might have some sort of stealth capability. (everyone looks at Jeremy, who simply throws his hand up and shakes his head)
Isaac: Dana?
Dana: We'll brush the studio.
Natalie: That's all. Final rundown's at 10:00. (everyone gets up to leave)
Dan: Hey, Isaac, you got a second?
Isaac: What's going on?
Dan: I got the Intellectual Property cops crawling up my butt.
Isaac: The Intellectual Propterty cops?
Dan: Yeah.
Isaac: Are crawling up your butt?
Dan: The heat's all over me.
Isaac: What the hell are you talking about, Dan?
Dan: I sang Happy Birthday to Casey on the air.
Isaac: When?
Dan: Well, on his birthday Isaac.
Isaac: Oh sure.
Dan: The network's being charged $2,500 by the copyright holder.
Isaac: Someone holds the copyright to Happy Birthday?
Dan: The representatives of Patty and Mildred Hill.
Isaac: Took two people to write that song?
Dan: Go figure. The important thing is, I'm putting together a list of songs in the public domain and I'm asking each person to pick a song they'd like to have sung to them on their birthday.
Isaac: Why are you talking to me?
Dan: For you, I've boiled it down to two choices: 'Jammo, Jammo' by Guisepo Verdi, or 'Yo-Ho-Ho and a Bottle of Rum.'
Isaac: Are you on any medication right now?
Dan: I'm gonna go with the Verdi.

Editing Room:
Jeremy: If you freeze frame this shot right here, and lose the Pepsi sign, you spot shadow the right inside linebacker, then cut back to movement on the whole field, that works.
Natalie: Jeremy, Dana's got me thinking. When was the last time you had a good idea?
Jeremy: It was right then.
Natalie: That's not what I mean.
Jeremy: It was a good idea.
Natalie: I was talking on a grander scale.
Jeremy: I see.
Natalie: I mean a good idea on the grand scale of human experience.
Jeremy: Yes.
Natalie: When was the last time you had one?
Jeremy: A good idea on the grand scale of human experience.
Natalie: Yes.
Jeremy: You understand I'm saying we spot shadow the inside linebacker?
Natalie: Yes.
Jeremy: That doesn't count?
Natalie: I feel like a freeloader sometimes, leaving the good ideas up to other people. I feel like I'm standing on the shoulders of generations past. Do you know what I mean?
Jeremy: Yes.
Natalie: Really?
Jeremy: My grandfather invented the clipboard.
Natalie: Did he?
Jeremy: Well, he didn't invent it, but he always use to complain that he didn't have a portable writing surface.
Natalie: I don't think you're getting it.
Jeremy: Yeah, I don't think so.
Natalie: I am certain, beyond any doubt, that if Dana and Casey got together as a couple, they would both be very happy. I think that's a good idea.
Jeremy: That is a virtuous idea.
Natalie: You don't think it's a good idea?
Jeremy: Well, I'm not really one to...
Natalie: Tell me what you think!
Jeremy: I think it's a bad idea.
Natalie: Look who's talking, you want to spot shadow the outside linebacker.
Jeremy: Inside linebacker!
Natalie: They are meant for each other!
Jeremy: The outside and inside linebacker?
Natalie: I meant Dana and Casey.
Jeremy: I think the outside and inside linebacker have a better chance.

Studio/Control Room:
Dan: 12 for 19 from the field, 11 rebounds, 13 assists, add it all up and it's what the old folks call a Triple Double.
Casey: It's what the Germans call a dreifach verdoplen, in Japanese it's toripuro daburu, and it's rawa engwa eu for those of you who speak the ancient language of Acadian. You're watching Sports Night on CSC, so stick around.
Natalie: We're out.
Dave: 60 seconds back.
Dana: (into mic) The ancient language of Acadian?
Jeremy: That was me.
Dan: Hey Dana, I was seeing you've got a birthday coming up and I was wondering how you feel about 'Oh Dem Golden Slippers?'
(Dana looks at Isaac)
Isaac: Just go with it.
Dana: (into mic) Yeah, that's fine.
Dan: (to Casey) By the way, you know what you got me for my birthday? A box of Mallomars.
Casey: You like Mallomars.
Dan: I love Mallomars, but these weren't $2,500 Mallomars.
Casey: They were good Mallomars.
Dan: They were fine Mallomars. All I'm saying is that you could have had the 4 remaining Spice Girls serve them to me in hot pants --- I'd still say I got gyped.
Dave: 10 seconds.
Dan: How's your ankle?
Casey: Broken.
Dan: You know what? Frere Jacques for you on your birthday next year. One chorus.
Dave: In 3, 2...
Casey: That's all for this edition of Sports Night, tune in on Monday night and we'll have the NFL, the NBA and all the college ball you can handle.
Dan: I'm Dan Rydell for Casey McCall and all of us here at CSC, thanks for joining us. Have a good weekend.
Dana: Vermont!
Kim: Gordon just called from his car. He's downstairs.
Dana: I'm on my way. I am on my way to Vermont. Five hours from now I shall be in Vermont. Do you know what I'm doing right now?
Kim: Going to Vermont?
Dana: That's right.
Natalie: (to Casey) Dana's leaving. Go say goodbye.
Casey: I have things to do.
Natalie: What do you have to do?
Casey: I have to take off my earpiece. (Natalie reaches across desk and rips out Casey's earpiece) OW!
Dana: The Green Mountain State. Maple Syrup. Want me to bring you back some maple syrup, Chris?
Chris: I've got maple syrup.
Will: I need maple syrup.
Dana: Maple syrup for Will.
Will: No, wait. I've got maple syrup.
Dana: No maple syrup for Will.
Dave: Good night.
Dana: Good night, guys.
Casey: (to Dave) Good night.
Dave: Good night.
Casey: (to Dana) Good night, have a good weekend.
Dana: I will.
Casey: (mumbles) I bet you will.
Dana: What was that?
Casey: I said I bet you will.
Dana: You bet I will.
Casey: Yeah.
Dana: What does that mean?
Casey: Well, it means that if someone were to offer money against the possibility of your having a good time this weekend I would take that action.
Dana: I'm gonna have a good time this weekend.
Casey: I bet you will.
Dana: Stop saying that!
Casey: Dana, I want you to go to Vermont. I want you to have a good time. I'm all for it, really, I am. Except for this: I don't think you should go.
Dana: Don't do this.
Casey: Who's Gordon?
Dana: Gordon's my friend. He's nothing anyone needs to worry about.
Casey: Aztec Two step "Turandot?"
Dana: Have you been following me?
Casey: No.
Dana: Have you?
Casey: I have not been following you. I'm not 10 years old. I looked at the calendar on your desk.
Dana: I can't believe...
Casey: Saturday the 2nd, Aztec Two-step at the Bottom Line with Gordon. Sunday the 10th, Turandot with Gordon at Lincoln Center. And I'm assuming, although your modifier was dangling, that you're going with Gordon to see Turandot, not going to see Gordon in Turandot.
Dana: Yes, that's right.
Casey: So?
Dana: So knock it off.
Casey: Knock what off?
Dana: This. This. Knock it off. You've been doing it to me since college. And we're not doing it anymore.
Casey: We're not doing what anymore?
Dana: Every time your life starts to spin out of control, you come after me. And you make me feel like you feel a certain way when you really don't. You did it in college. You did it in Dallas, you did it in L.A., and you're doing it now. I don't think you're cute. I don't think you're funny, I don't think you're smart and sometimes I don't think you're very nice.
Casey: (pauses) You don't think I'm funny?
Dana: I'm leaving now. (starts to walk away)
Casey: I apologize for nothing. (Dana stops) Well, that's not true. I apologize for some things. But not a lot of things. A few things. Several things. I apologize for about half the things.
Dana: Good night.
Casey: What do you want from me? I married Lisa.
Dana: Yes you did.
Casey: Well, now I'm not married to Lisa.
Dana: Lisa was a friend of mine.
Casey: Lisa can't stand you.
Dana: Lisa can't stand you!
Casey: Lisa can't stand Lisa.
Dana: Whatever the case, your life is changing faster than you can manage. You're depressed, you're angry, you're lonely and your frightened, but god, everything would be fine if I could just see Dana naked.
Casey: Oh Dana, believe me. I have no desire to see you naked.
Dana: Excuse me?
Casey: That came out wrong.
Dana: Make it come out right.
Casey: Look, of course I want to see you naked.
Dana: Louder.
Casey: I want to see you naked.
Dana: I can't hear you!
Casey: I want badly to see you naked. (Jeremy walks by and stops)
Dana: Yeah you better wanna see me naked! (Both look at Jeremy, who turns and leaves) Look, you know what I do when my life is starting to spin out of control? I buy a new lamp. Everytime I'm starting to loose it just a little, I buy a lamp.
Casey: Well you must have one well lit apartment, 'cause lady you turned a corner somewhere.
Dana: I'm not the one being hunted by an imaginary insect!
Casey: A fly isn't an insect.
Dana: Of course it's an insect.
Casey: Well, what is it that isn't?
Dana: A spider.
Casey: That's right.
Dana: So, while I appreciate the attention, you and I know it's not about me, it's about you being a lunatic!
Casey: Look, Dana, you seem to be under the impression that I'm harboring some kind of love for you...
Dana: No! You're under that impression, but I know that it's in your head just like the fly!
Casey: A: I am not feeling what you think I'm feeling. B: if I were feeling what you think I'm feeling it wouldn't be in my head and C: you have serious feelings for me that only now are you being forced to confront and that will likely send you into a lamp-buying frenzy.
Dana: OKAY! Let's review this, I don't think you quite have this. I have utterly no feelings for you what so ever, you are monumentally interested in me, only are not, 'cause it's all in your head!
Casey: Like the fly?
Dana: Like the fly!
Casey: Okay, so just to sum up: you're critically deranged!
Dana: You know what I'm taking with me to Vermont?
Casey: A team of world-class psychiatrists?
Dana: Black lingerie, lots of it. I'm gonna have a good time!
Casey: I bet you will!
Dana: KNOCK IT OFF. (pauses) You know what I am talking about, and it is not fair to me. It's not good for you. It's not good for me, and it's not good for the show. So knock it off.
(door opens)
Gordon: Dana?
Dana: Hey sweetie.
Gordon: Oh, hey. I was waiting downstairs. Thought something might be wrong.
Dana: No, sorry. Just tying up some loose ends. (kisses Gordon)
Gordon: Well that was worth waiting for.
Casey: Hey Gordon, Casey McCall.
Gordon: Hey, great to meet you. I'm a big fan.
Casey: You guys are gonna get about 8 to 10 inches of fresh powder up at Sugarbush. I checked the wire for you.
Gordon: Hey, cool. Thanks.
Casey: Yeah, no problem. Have a great weekend. (exits)
Gordon: Thanks. (turns to Dana) So, are you ready to go?
Dana: Yeah. I left my bags by the elevators. (As Dana walks through the studio, a fly buzzes her head causing her to flinch wildly and look around for the fly) Son of a gun.
