EXT. - ABOVE GROUND POOLSIDE - Day
PAUL GIAMATTI is fussing in a lounge chair, struggles to find a good position for a tanning screen for his face. It's overcast and he has sunblock on the bridge of his nose. JASON KRAVITS is sitting backwards on a chair facing Paul Giamatti and STEPHEN TOBOLOWSKY is lounging with them, looking very comfortable and content.STEPHEN TOBOLOWSKY
I wouldn't worry about it. I have dozens of stalkers.
You wouldn't believe the kind of trim I pulled after Mississippi Burning. They called me the S-train.PAUL GIAMATTI
You played a klansman.
Yeah, it was crazy pussy. (turns onto stomach) I'd just pitch her a bone and she'll lay off.
I'm with Paul on this one. He needs to get a bodyguard. When's the guy coming over?

You landed Liam Neeson?

That's Dr. Giggles.
Oh, yeah, the retard from LA Law. What has he been up to lately?
He was in a little something called Star Wars.

Jason Kravits starts to object, but is interrupted by the gate opening. A MALE VOICE calls up.MALE VOICE
Hello? Anybody up there? I'm from the security agency. I'm looking for a...Paul Joomatty?
THE BOYS approach the railing of the above ground pool and peer down. OTS REVEAL of a schlubby, balding man who is a dead ringer for Paul Giamatti.STEPHEN TOBOLOWSKY

‘Toad coin?’ wondered the traveler as he examined the pebble. It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.
Spending $10-15 a day on perishable organic dog food is not a sign of a decadent culture in terminal decline, it's actually real good and worth it.
No lifeguard on duty. Maze run at your own risk.
