What's your dog's name?
Uh, Scotty. I named him for F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Isn't that disrespectful?
Naming your dog after him? It's a little disrespectful. Think about it. You're a novelist. You think this guy's the greatest. So you name your dog after him to cut him down to size. This way, you can put him on a leash... and yell "Bad Scotty" and feel all superior because you pee inside. Kill your idols, man. I'm all for it.
This film is dedicated to Jay Kaplan who brought love and magic to everyone he met. See more
