The day that was filmed was on a friday, and I had a terrible ear infection. Also, on that day, Robocop premiered along with Jaws IV. Unfortuntely, I saw them both.

Rick said...

Is that Bond, James Bond?

And Robocop rocked. Well, sort of.

Todd Vick said...

Which one is Moneypenny?

Hindsight being 20/20, why didn't anyone think to put something on those shelves? Some books, a toy clown, a company award, a toy mini-cooper, any thing to make it look like a real Corporate Fast Food HQ. However, the costume are perfect, especially Critter's sock tie and Chuck's hair helmet. Oooh, what I wouldn't give now for hair helmet of my own.

Steve said...

Ahh the sock tie. Fond memories. That tie has long since been relagated to the pile of oil changing rags in the garage.

If memory serves, we filmed this on a shoestring budget (thus the lack of accoutrima on the shelves). If this went like our other filming excursions, we were probably arrested shortly after this scene was filmed.

James, I;m getting bored checking your blog for updates and seeing nothing, so I'm going to make up some dialogue for Steve's and Chuck's characters in this photo. I encourage everyone else to do the same.

Scene 1 (Marketing Conference)

Chuck: Wake up Steve, someone has stollen all the office supplies and sock ties from your shelves.

Steve: Zzzzz, Huh? What the... This must be the work of Rickwell. That dastardly chap is never satisfied with his mini-cooper toys and coffee mugs, he has to steal my sock tie collection too. Argh!

Chuck: Chill Bra!

Steve: I thought we agreed not to call each other "Bra" anymore.

Chuck: Sorry, I forgot. Still, let's go get that guy.

Steve: Whatever, as long as you stop sitting on my desk in what I can at best consider and uncomfortably close proximity for two dudes in an office. Geez, gimme some personal space howboutit!

Chuck: Psfz. You and your intollerance. Aren't you learning anything from that awesome TightyWhitey blog? I mean come on!

Steve: You're right. I only fly gigantic aircraft, but one day I hope to be as coolas that TightyWhitey guy.

Chuck: Me too, pal. Me too.

End Scene

Steve said...

Chuck: You are getting more sleepy...there, now you are completely under. When I count to 3, you will wake up continue to think Americans actually landed on the moon, that the Clintons were attacked by the Right for no reason, and that every penny of your taxes is put to good use by the government. 1...2...3...

George said...

Alternate Scene:

Chuck: Hold still, Steve. I think you might have something stuck in your left eye.

Steve: What, like an eyelash?

Chuck: No, more like a stapler.

Rick said...

bwah ha ha - sock ties - nice sock ties.

Steve said...

Chuck: Steve, it would appear the part in your hair is growing larger by the minute. Soon your brain will be exposed.

Steve: No problem, I'll just close my eyes and go to my happy place.

Chuck said...

Wow! Don't read the comments and you find yourself gettin beasted.

And, btw, I can still grow out that helmet whenever I want. However, the facial hair is getting patching.

And the...well, I will just leave it there.

George said...

Ahhh, welcome back to the thread of comments.

I was awakened around 4am by the text message on my phone that you had added a new comment to this post.

Late nigher, huh?

Don't be offended by the "hair helmet" comment. I'm envious. My former hair helmet is barely a hair headphone set these days. However, I now have a hair cape on my back. Cool huh?

There is something about this photo that I really like. Perhaps it's the way Charles is poised, seated on the side of the desk like a reporter in a newsroom. And Steve, looking subjected and eager to please.
