Who Is Cletis Tout?

...a great movie.
I love the movies.
I mean, the old movies
you know, where it
was all about the story.

I've got a story.
I'll bet you do.
Yeah, yeah,
this one's got it all-

prison break, jewel heist...
Pitch me.
Pinch you?
Pitch me.
It's a Hollywood thing.
It's where the asshole
with all the power

you know,
makes you dance like a monkey.

What's in it for me?
Maybe you get
to live a little longer.

Maybe if your story's so good
when that pager rings,
I might forget where I am...

I'm at the movies.
Nobody remembers their job
at the movies.

Uh, well, let's see, uh...
I think it was 1977,
New York City...

no, no. No, no, no.
No one will shoot in New York.
It's way too expensive.
Let's call it
"city non-specific."

And the whole thing's
in the '70s?

No, no, just the...
just the beginning.

Like a flashback.
I love the flashback-
much maligned,
oft-misunderstood flashback.

Pitch me.
It was 1977...
the uh, the city's
diamond exchange.

There was a magician...
well done.
