Imitation of Life

That's why Robert
sent me to you.
He thought I'd get more...

personal attention
from you.

He could be right there.
You mind?

Incidentally, how's the new
Tennessee Williams play?

Bound to be a blockbuster,
but all cast.

Hello? Oh, Lillian!

Oh, well,
can't you break it?

Oh. No, I don't mind.
I don't mind you
standing me up. I'm fine.
I'll just kill myself.

Never be a bachelor.
There's no security.
I know how you feel.

Yeah? Say, how'd you like
to go with me tonight?

I'm afraid I can't.
Big party.
Lots of important people.

Well, I could see if I could
break a couple of engagements.

I'll call my place.
I'll call.
What's the number?

...One, two, oh.
Miss Meredith's residence.
Oh, this is
Miss Meredith's residence?

That'll be Annie, my maid.
I'll talk to her.

Annie, uh, call
the Waldorf and tell, um,

you-know-who I cannot have
cocktails and dinner with him.

Uh, I know who?
Oh, yes, Miss Lora,
I'll do that.

Thank you.
Well, Mr. Loomis,
it looks like I'm free.

That'll be just fine.
Should be an interesting
evening for me.

Hollywood actress and...
Oh, that reminds me.
Excuse me.

Yes, Mr. Loomis?
Annette, get me Hollywood,
Mr. Robert Hayes.

International Studios,
right? International...

Maybe you better not
go through with that call.

You don't think so?
Why not?

Because Robert Hayes
doesn't exist.
