VOICE (M. H. )  SHUT UP IN THERE.  Alright, you all know the drill.  When your number is called, step forward and repeat the phrase you've been given.  Understand?

Gruden:  Hand me the film, you darn heckworker.

VOICE (M. H. )  Number 2, step forward.

(Leach steps up and makes a gun with his thumb and forefinger.  He mocks criminal intensity, pointing at the mirror.  He camps up his line.)

Leach:   Give me the film, you gosh-darn, heckworking pile of heck, or I'll rip off your-

VOICE (M. H. )  KNOCK IT OFF.  Get back in line. 

Leach:  Aaarrghh.

(Leach steps back.)

VOICE (M. H. )  Number 3, step forward.

Davis:  Hand me the darn film, you heckworker, what the heck?
