I'm a producer of movies. I get my wagonloads of poets and dramatists, but I can't buy common sense - I cannot buy humanity!
Well, I don't know why, Mr. Merlin. There's an awful lot of it.
Yes, I know, but the moment I buy it, it turns into something else, usually genius, and it isn't worth a dime. Now, if you could stay just as simple as your are, you'd be invaluable to me. I'll put you on my staff. I'll give you a title, "Miss Humanity". Don't rush, you can finish your ice cream soda.
