Int. Vancouver Condo – Day

DAVE MOSES sits at his computer. A DING! indicates “You’ve Got Mail.” It’s from DAVE STEWART.

Stewart: Gimme the one-liner for 'Hiccups', the show you’ve just finished working on.

Stewart: Who’s in it?

Cinema Seats

Though our original chairs have served us well, they were used when we bought them 16 years ago and weren’t getting any springier.

Int. FX Studio/Computer Lab–late night

I expect Fox Henderson to be kind of shy, but as he enters the lab, he warns me that he’ll probably swear a lot. He doesn’t. He does, however, have a lot of film projects, both behind him and ahead of him, to discuss.
