compliments

Would you convey my compliments to the purist who reads your proofs and tell him or her that I write in a sort of broken-down patois which is something like the way a Swiss waiter talks, and that when I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split, and when I interrupt the velvety smoothness of my more or less literate syntax with a few sudden words of bar-room vernacular, that is done with the eyes wide open and the mind relaxed but attentive.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Mrs. Chadwick:
Now, Miss Crawford. When this sort of thing has happened before, we've...



Joan Crawford:
BEFORE? Is this an institution of learning or a teenage brothel?

Chadwick has an impeccable reputation. And when students break the rules we curtail their freedom.

Well, we are leaving here, right now. Obviously she cannot be controlled in this environment.

Narrator:
But what if our gate was more Artist Friendly? We'll start with the guards. Those dark uniforms connote oppression and conformity.


[*bing!* The guards' uniforms change]



Narrator:
But new outfits, with pastel colors and high, pretty collars, seem to say, "I'm your friend, not your enemy."


[*bing!* Buttons appear on the shirts, reading, "Universal is A-OK!"]



Narrator:
How about some inspiring buttons to show our optimism? And what about that security gate? Black and white lines may remind artists of police and fear.


[*bing!* The gate is ridiculously decorated]



Narrator:
But a new gate, with attractive flowers and colorful birds, becomes a lovely decoration, not just a deterrent.


[*bing!* Floral arrangements appear around the guard kiosk]



Narrator:
Now with just a few more changes...


[*bing!* A tacky lawn ornament appears]



Narrator:
And some attractive porcelain deer, our gate is now Artist Friendly, and ready for the future. So how do you feel now, Miss Actress?



Traci Lords:
I feel welcome and relaxed for a meeting at Universal.


[She drives off]



Narrator:
That's splendid. Too bad the part you want will probably go to Demi Moore.

Narrator:
Oh, nothing. Here, have a wine cooler, compliments of your new studio.
