"Oh, I love Louis. I really do. Great guy. But you see Gary, in a town like this, there are two kinds of people: the predators and the prey. You and me, pal, we're predators. Louis B. Mayer needs to learn a thing or two about the food chain."

"I like the way you think, Harry. I do. And I want to work with you. But I also need to make sure that my involvement with Warner Brothers is lucrative. And I don't mean money."

"Oh?" said Harry, patting his lips with a napkin. "And what else can I provide for you, my friend?"

"Harry, you're in the picture business. You know the...benefits we require to do our jobs."

9/14/2011 #94

"Oh, I do. But they are many and...varied. Am I to assume you'd like all of them?"

"Well, we'll have to sign the contract first, then take a look at the script. The rest, as they say, is the icing on the cake."

"Fine with me."

9/14/2011 #98

"So, we'll have our lawyers send over a contract."

"Fine by me." Gary replied.

Lilah smiled and walked through the door. "Thank you."

Jack found a booth and sat down after Lilah. "Gee, but I'm hungry."

"After last night that doesn't surprise me," Lilah said with a smile.

"What happened last night?" Jack asked. "Oh, that's right."

Lilah chuckled and shook her head. "Last night was great."

J.A. Fletcher

"That? That was nothing."

"I know...but it was nice, nevertheless."

"Sure." Jack said. The waiter came and he ordered hotcakes. "What would you like, Lilah?"

9/19/2011 #108
Phoebe Powers

"I'll have the same."

9/19/2011 #109
J.A. Fletcher

The waiter left. Jack took Lilah's hands.

"I forgot to ask you." He said. "Do you know how to sing?"

Phoebe Powers

She looked over at him. "A little though I wouldn't say that it is all that impressive."

"If we get you a coach, you might be able to sing for a band."

"I'm willing to try it, but do you think that is a good idea considering everything else?" Lilah asked.

"It'll give you something to do." Jack shrugged. "You don't want to be a housewife, do you?"

9/19/2011 #114
Phoebe Powers

"Not necessarily. All right, taking singing classes could be fun."

9/19/2011 #115
J.A. Fletcher

"Sure." Jack replied. "That's what actresses do. They sing."

9/19/2011 #116
Phoebe Powers

"Then being able to sing would be an added asset."

9/19/2011 #117
J.A. Fletcher

"Sure. And when they finally get around to start putting sound in pictures, we can make a musical. Shouldn't be long. Another six months. Maybe a year."

9/19/2011 #118
Phoebe Powers

"That sounds exciting."

9/19/2011 #119
J.A. Fletcher

"Not really." Jack replied.
