Good morning, gentlemen
It must be something important, you wanted a meeting so early.
At least it didn't keep you awake all last night. Once the gimmick came to me, I couldn't stop thinking about it. It's a promotion stunt. One that could rack up the biggest coast-to-coast dance audience in the history of show business.
Look it's early in the morning. Outside of coffee, nothing's going to keep me from yawning except money. You haven't mentioned that yet.
We gain, the record ...
