A Play About Micky Dolenz
Stacy: Hey, Matt . . . you don't still want me to interview Micky Dolenz, do you?
Stacy: I can tell from your enthusiasm that's a big "yes."
Matt: I was drinking water. What's your angle?
Stacy: I don't know. I'm not really that into it, so if you don't want it, that's okay.
Matt: What's he doing?
Stacy: He's the bad guy in the new Aida or something. You know, Elton John at OCPAC.
Receptionist page: Matt Coker, line 50.
Matt: [on phone to wife] Honey, what's a good angle for an article on Micky Dolenz?
Matt: [to office] She says, "Why would you write about Micky Dolenz?"
Ellen: I once wet his daughter.
Anthony & Stacy: What?
Ellen: I once met his daughter.
Anthony & Stacy: Oh.
Anthony: Is he related to Amy Dolenz?
Gustavo: Nativo Lopez is a pig.
Matt: No, Amy Dolenz.
Gustavo: Who's that?
Anthony: I don't know.
Ellen: Is Amy Dolenz his daughter?
Ellen: Then I wet his other daughter.
Anthony & Stacy: WHAT?
Ellen: I SAID I MET HIS OTHER DAUGHTER.
Anthony & Stacy: Oh.
[An intern requesting anonymity begins giggling. Loudly.]
Anthony: Do we have any other interns? What was the name of that one here today?
Ellen: Is this really going into print?
Anthony: Yes, it's going on the cover.
Matt: Why don't you just turn on a tape recorder?
Ellen: Hey, the other night, [hee hee] I asked if Mike Ness was one of the Monkees!
Matt: "Pergola." Is that a type of floor?
Stacy: So should I really interview Micky Dolenz or not?
Matt: Am I answering, or am I going into the story?
Anthony: It depends on how witty you are.
Matt: Get me Peter Tork, and you've got a story.
