Robert K. Bowfinger: Would you be willing to cut your hair?

Kit: White boys always get the Oscar. It's a known fact. Did I ever get a nomination? No! You know why? Cause I hadn't played any of them slave roles, and get my ass whipped. That's how you get the nomination. A black dude who plays a slave that gets his ass whipped gets the nomination, a white guy who plays an idiot gets the Oscar. That's what I need, I need to play a retarded slave, then I'll get the Oscar.

Carol: I know that I'm not supposed to be doing this, but I just want you to know that you were so real in your response to the aliens. I mean, I wasn't even sure that I could be a pod person, but now, of course, I'm enjoying it, because you made the aliens come alive. It was like they were living inside of me! Oh, and at first I was nervous about us having sex, but now I think it's a good idea, as long as we do it in a completely professional manner... and of course, you know there will be a lot of people watching. I won't bother you anymore.

[Bowfinger shows Stricter the footage of Kit exposing himself to the Laker Girls]

Terry Stricter: You realize there's not a court in the country that wouldn't consider this blackmail.

Robert K. Bowfinger: You know what? I don't know anything about blackmail... 'cause I'm just a guy, a guy with a great film in the can. All I really need is a shot of Kit saying, "Gotcha, suckas" and a couple of close-ups. Or we've to tag our film with a shot of Kit wagging his thing at the Laker Girls. Which is a great ending. I mean, who wouldn't wanna see that? Although technically, it's not such a good ending for Kit... because it could sort of stop his money flow... and possibly make that family film he's about to do, just pff-ff!

Terry Stricter: We'll have to think about it.

[beat]

Terry Stricter: I mean, we'll have to think about it... for Kit.

[Bowfinger muses, acts like he's checking his watch]

Robert K. Bowfinger: Would you be willing to cut your hair?

Robert K. Bowfinger: And why is this going to work? Because Afrim here is a damn fine screenwriter, as well as accountant and part time receptionist. I said to Afrim "If you can write half as well as you can add-" Well I didn't even have to finish my sentence. Twelve days later he hands me this, this masterpiece. Afrim, tell them what it's called.

Afrim: Chubby Rain.

Robert K. Bowfinger: Tell them why!

Afrim: Because when the aliens come down to earth, they come inside raindrops, making the rain chubby. Chubby rain!
