This guy's my hero.
He comes in with some stuff, he wants it blown up 400 percent.
We say, "We don't do that.
" He says, "You got to.
" And you know what? We did it and now any time anybody wants 400, we just say, "Let's Ross it.
" And that's the only color that comes in.

Yeah, but Mischa is so interested in you that Sergei and I haven't been able to say two words to each other.

Why, what happened to him? Nothing.
He just really believes in that.

I told him he treats me like a park ranger or somethingugh and then I told him I wanted to take a break.
I don't want to take a break.
Oh, I'm sorry.
[SIGHS] - Egg roll? - No.
And then I called him, and he wasn't there.

I just hope you don't accidentally suck it up through your nose and choke on it.
Sergei would like to apologize for my behavior tonight.
Well, tell him, "Apology accepted.
" Oh, he's unbelievable.
