Waiting for Guffman
written by Christopher Guest & Eugene Levy
Corky St Clair: I'm feeling good, about where we stand not with our cast, I think that the Elements--as Dr. Watson said to Sherlock--are coming together sir. I'm very excited about Ron and Sheila: the old standbys, the workhorses, I call them the Lunts of Blaine. Alan Pearl: interesting, how do these people? Where do they come from? Y'know, sure, I'd seen him around. It would have never occurred to me to walk up to the dentist and say, y'know are you interested in this? But I was shopping for my wife Bonnie. I buy most of her clothes and Mrs. Pearl was in the same shop and it just was an accident and we started talking about pantyhose and she was saying, whatever that's not the point of the story but what the point is was that through this accidental meeting its like, y'know, it's like a Hitchcock movie and you're like thrown into a rubber bag and put into a trunk of a car. You find people, you find them. Something. Is it karma-maybe. But we found him, that's the important thing. And I got Bonnie a fabulous pantsuit.
