Monologue from a screenplay-in-waiting, "A World Unto Itself"
Writer not given
Kyle Lawless: Let me give you a nickel's worth of free advice, kid. Today you're Hollywood's hottest prospect and you're living nothing short of the American dream; you've got the car, you've got the house, you've got the girl. Greed's your drug and you've never been higher. But as quick as you rose, you'll crash twice as hard, and tomorrow, you'll just be another yesterday's nobody. All this around you right now, the lights, the glitter, the glamour, it all fades away. When the odometer turns over at 30, and the most recent thing you've done is that "Guiding Light" episode that aired six months ago, you'll realize that this isn't where you want to be. But by that time, Tinsle Town'll have already evicted you.
