You're making me nauseous.
Barry, I gave you this monologue for a reason.
To see if you were capable of playing a character with even the mildest set of balls.
You know, I'm seeing a trend in your work, and it's disturbing, and it's this You are deferential to every character in a scene except for yours! It's the way you read every scene.
And if you're gonna be an actor, it's a big problem.
Okay, listen.
I guess what I just thought was that my guy was trying to help these other dudes achieve a goal, right? And if it was me, I would want them You know what? That is so lovely.
If it was you.
Is that the way you see your life, as a human doormat? - No.
- "No"? 'Cause that's all we've ever seen in here.
And I'll bet you tits to donuts it's no different out there in the real world.
You were in the service, right? Right? Yeah, well, that makes sense, doesn't it? "Stand like this.
Clean your gun.
Swab the deck.
Peel a potato.
" Barry, do you ever ask for what you need? Or do you just quietly feel shame at your own desires while sadly doing the bidding of others? "Dear diary, today, "I did what everybody else wanted me to do.
Is that all right with you, diary? Love, Barry.
" Is that the life you wanna lead? - Look at me.
Answer me.
- No.
No.
You're just saying that because I told you to say it! Well, I don't know what you want me to say.
I want you to fight for yourself, Barry.
I want you to tell me one thing you desire.
- [SIGHS] - I want you to say out loud, "Hey, I want this!" Can you tell me one thing? All I want is to take this class.
Well, then you've got 10 seconds to make me believe that, fucko, or you're never gonna see the inside of this class again! [WHISPERS] And action.
Fuches! I'm not doing it! Any of it, okay? I know it's what you want, but fuck you! Okay? There's a lot of things that I wanna do, but you don't care about any of that! Take out a stash house all by myself? "Oh yeah, let's have Barry do it.
