"What typeface do you want?"

"Oh, I don't care, whatever you've got, as long as it doesn't say comedy, or anything else about the movie."

"Done. And the images?"

"Again, don't care. This thing's a dead loss. You got any pictures of Jennifer Aniston, but sort of busy and uninteresting, like a screen grab, so people will know this is one of those in-between Anistons with like Woody Harrelson, that goes straight to video?"

"We can do that. Who's the guy?"

"Some guy from TV. Whatever picture you've got is fine. Just so long as their eyelines don't match."

"Got it. Hey, What's he doing?"

"That's a cup of his own spooge."

"Wow, that's really unappealing. Why's he smelling it?"

"I don't know. Maybe he thinks if it smells bad he's got cancer. Who gives a shit. Just paste it in."

"You got a lot of white space..."

"How many times do I have to tell you, I. Don't. Care."

"I'm just saying, you've got room for a tag line."

"Okay... uh... from the people who brought you Juno and Little Miss Sunshine."

"Is that true?"

"Yes. The people who made those movies were Americans, and the people who made this movie were also Americans. The American people."

"Okay. Here you go. What do you think?"

"I think I don't care."

"So you're happy?"

"Yep. Thanks. This is a really nice Kinko's."

"You're welcome."
