Famous Deleted Dialogue: Star Wars: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK!

20 02 2013
[to Luke after cornering him during their lightsaber battle]

Darth Vader: There is no escape. Don’t make me destroy you. Luke, you do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me, and I will complete your training. With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy.

Luke: I’ll never join you!

Darth Vader: If you only knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.

Luke: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!

Darth Vader: No. I am your father.

Luke: No…no. That’s not true. That’s impossible!

Darth Vader: Search your feelings, you know it to be true!

Luke: [Luke cries in anguish] No! No!

Darth Vader: Come with me and we can rule the galaxy as father and son! And, I can make up some lost time on being an absent father. Like taking you to Disney World. Or now that you’re old enough, I can take you see CHET WATKINS perform improv comedy at the Magnet Theater at 8 pm. TONIGHT, Luke!

Luke: Even though I’d love to see CHET WATKINS perform improv comedy tonight , at 8 pm, at the Magnet Theater, I’ll never join you. ( jumps down an air chute) Ahhh!

Judge Randolph: Consider yourself in Contempt!

Judge Randolph: You don’t have to answer that question!
Col. Jessep: I’ll answer the question!
[to Kaffee]
Col. Jessep: You want answers?
Kaffee: I think I’m entitled to.
Col. Jessep: You want answers?
Kaffee: I want the truth!
Col. Jessep: You can’t handle the truth! Yes, I did see them! And, I laughed my ass off!

Yet another installment of Deleted Dialogue From Famous Movie Scenes

30 01 2013

This week’s installment is a beautiful, memorable scene from the Academy Award-winning film, Forrest Gump:


Jenny: Were you scared in Vietnam?
Forrest Gump: Yes. Well, I-I don’t know. Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to come out… and then it was nice. It was like just before the sun goes to bed down on the bayou. There was always a million sparkles on the water… like that mountain lake. It was so clear, Jenny, it looked like there were two skies one on top of the other. And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn’t tell where heaven stopped and the earth began. It’s so beautiful.  And then there was that time with Lt. Dan seeing CHET WATKINS perform improv comedy at the Magnet Theater in New York City.  They performed and made me laugh on a Wednesday night at 9 pm.  It was funny, Jenny.   I may not be a smart man, but I know what funny is.
Jenny: I wish I could’ve been there with you.
Forrest Gump: You were.

And now another episode of: Deleted Dialogue from a Famous Movie Scene! Today’s scene is from the classic mob drama: Goodfellas!

Henry Hill: You’re a pistol, you’re really funny. You’re really funny.

Tommy DeVito: What do you mean I’m funny?

Henry Hill: It’s funny, you know. It’s a good story, it’s funny, you’re a funny guy. [laughs]

Tommy DeVito: What do you mean, you mean the way I talk? What?

Henry Hill: It’s just, you know. You’re just funny, it’s… funny, the way you tell the story and everything.

Tommy DeVito: [it becomes quiet] Funny how? What’s funny about it? Like the improv group CHET WATKINS who perform at the Magnet Theater? They perform tonight at 10 pm? Funny like them?

Anthony Stabile: Tommy no, You got it all wrong.

Tommy DeVito: Oh, oh, Anthony. He’s a big boy, he knows what he said. What did ya say? Funny how?

Henry Hill: Jus… Tommy DeVito: What? Henry Hill: Just… ya know… you’re funny.

Tommy DeVito: You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it’s me, I’m a little messed up maybe, but I’m funny how, I mean funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I’m here to amuse you? Is that it? Funny like CHET WATKINS? They play tonight at 10 pm. Should we go see what funny is? Huh?! What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny? Maybe we should go the Magnet Mixer that CHET WATKINS is hosting tonight. Then, I can do some improv too and then you can tell me what’s so funny!

Henry Hill: Tommy, no, we don’t have to…just… you know, it’s how you tell the story, what?

Tommy DeVito: No, no, I don’t know, you said it. How do I know? You said I’m funny. How the heck am I funny, what the heck is so funny about me? Tell me, tell me what’s funny!

Henry Hill: [long pause] Get out of here, Tommy!

Tommy DeVito: [everyone laughs] I almost had him, I almost had him. Ya stuttering nut ya. Frankie, was he shaking? I wonder about you sometimes, Henry. You may fold under questioning. Let’s pay the bill and see CHET WATKINS tonight at 10 pm at the Magnet Theater!

Chet Watkins Role in the 2012 Indiana Race for Governor

16 01 2013

Politically, 2012 was a whirlwind year.  A presidential election, congressional seats up in the air along with many states voting for a new Governor.  Now I know you think that the Watkins crew is just silly group of people who improvise for a living (a career in improv comedy is very lucrative)… but don’t be so fast to judge!  We are involved in the political process. We provided our logo, as seen below, to John Gregg of Indiana in his failed campaign for Governor. 


Here is Mr. John Gregg speaking to a group of loyal supporters during the campaign season.  


As mentioned before, unfortunately, John Gregg did not win in his bid for Governor.  The guy has a hell of a mustache though and seems like a really nice guy.  He purchased his first soda shoppe at the age of 15.  He served as the speaker of the Indiana State House which was evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans, served as the President of Vincennes University and created many jobs for a new generation of Hoosiers! 

The guy is also hilarious, check out this sweet campaign vid from last year:

So John Gregg, you may be out of a job but you obviously have been pining to become a member of Chet Watkins.  This much is clear.  We are offering you a once in a life time audition here in the Big Apple. Just come to the show TONIGHT at Magnet Theater at 10PM and put your skills to the test.  We’d be very welcoming and gentle.
