Dialog from Amongst Friends on Entourage
23 August 2006 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Did anyone else catch Johnny Drama filming the Edward Burns pilot on Entourage, and borrowing the same dialogue that Bobby (Rob Weiss, co-Exec Producer of the show) utters just before the robbery scene?

"Nobody went up there and told you nuttin. It's not the same anymore. It's different now. It's not just happenin over there - it's not just happenin over there - it's happenin here - it's happenin everywhere. All tree of 'em went - boom, boom, boom - one after the next..."

Rob Weiss didn't write that episode though - some dude named Brian Burns did. Maybe Weiss got to have some fun inserting his favorite tough guy talk from 13 years ago into that little movie within a show...
