The holiday のシーンから - Be The Leading Lady
You know, l hope you don't find this strange......but l've just arrived here, and, well, l don't really know anyone. And l was thinking of going out for dinner tonight. Well, if you're not busy, would you like to join me?
Busy? Honey, l haven't been busy since 1 9 7 8.
l learned everything working in this place. Best job l ever had.
Wait, wait, wait. That was your first job in Hollywood? Louis B. Mayer's office boy?
Actually, my first job was as a Western Union messenger. That's how l met Mayer. l delivered a telegram to his office at MGM. When l walked in, all the girls in the office were in a tizzy. Their office boy didn't show up. l volunteered for the job. The next day, l was on the payroll. l was 1 7 years old.
Wooow…So was Hollywood really as great back then as l imagine?
lt was better. You know what l've been asking myself all night?
What? Why l'm bothering you with all these questions?
l'm wondering why a beautiful girl like you......would go to a stranger's house for her Christmas vacation......and on top of that, spend Saturday night with an old cocker like me.
Well, l…..l just wanted to get away from the people l see all the time. Well, not all the people. One person. l wanted to get away from one guy. An ex-boyfriend who just got engaged and forgot to tell me. Sorry.
So he's a schmuck.
As a matter of fact, he is. A huge schmuck. How did you know?
He let you go. This is not a hard one to figure out. lris, in the movies we have leading ladies......and we have the best friend. You, l can tell, are a leading lady. But for some reason, you're behaving like the best friend.
You're so right. You're supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for God's sake. Arthur, l've been going to a therapist for three years. And she's never explained anything to me that well. That was brilliant. Brutal, but brilliant. Thank you.
