Imagine: John Lennon

But you said,
"They're going to crucify me."

- Lf you're gonna take it literally...
- Me is you.

Me... And I say that we're all one.
I didn't permit you to speak for me.
Who are you speaking for?

I took that liberty, Mr. Capp.
It's too much of a liberty...
I was speaking on behalf
of the people in general...

- in a poetic sense.
- You're speaking for yourselves...

As a representative of the human race...
I'm speaking for us all
whether you like it or not.

Whatever race you're
the representative of, I ain't part of it.

Maybe yours is the human race
and mine is something less hirsute.

But whatever race, it's your race.
- You belong to a race on your own.
- Everybody in this room...

represents humanity.
Everybody in this room.

No, you don't represent me, though.
You don't write songs for me.

I want to make that clear to all of Canada.
Especially for you.
I'll let Kate Smith sing my songs.
Who do you write your cartoons for?
I write my cartoons for money.
Just as you sing your songs.

Exactly the same reason.
And exactly the same reason
much of this is happening, too...

if the truth be told.
You think I couldn't
earn money by some other way...

by sitting in bed for seven days,
taking shit from people like you?

I could write a song in an hour
and earn more money.

Now look here, don't say this.
You got into bed so people like me
could come and see you.

But not for money,
that's what you're saying.

It won't do you any real harm...
except you might get some bedsores.
But I could earn money
in more easier ways than doing this.

I tell you what would do you harm.
So could I.

I could make a lot more drawing
people like you, than confronting you.

And I must say it's much more
appetizing drawing them...

because I can leave them.
I prefer singing to doing this
but I'm doing this for a good reason.

What you've just done is when you said:
"Taking shit from people like you."
Now, I was invited here.
You knew I was coming.

- Yeah, sure.
- That's right.

So we're not doing it for money.
- You indicated...
- You haven't any manners at all.

And you have manners?
- I'm your guest. And, really even if...
- And I'm yours.

No, you're not! This is your bedroom!
Mr. Capp, may I say one thing?
I'd be delighted with any conversation.
