Rod: That ain't my problem, missy.

Carol: Oh, yeah? Well, I can make it your problem.[music sting and Carol grabs Rod violently by the balls]So, who sold you the stuff, huh?!

Carol: Oh, what's the matter Spinelli? You want your mamma?

Richard: And cut! That was great.

Rod:[exhausted] Moving on!

Richard:[to Carol] Hold up. I had an idea. Maybe you come at him soft, you know, you're real quiet-type like, but then you get your hands on those gonads and you really turn the screws on them, you know, maybe twist them.

Carol: Twist them.

Richard: Don't stop squeezing until you hear a crunch, you know what I mean? You hate him. He knows who killed your partner, ok? You know what I mean? Rod, you good, buddy?

Rod: Well, actually Richard to tell you the truth its just a little uncomfortable.

Richard: Cut! Come on, guys. Don't ad-lib in here. Don't ad-lib.

Black Actor: That was hurting me!

Carol: I really dug into him on that one.

Richard: You know what? I'd like to see more. Rod, what's wrong, pal?

Rod:[in extreme pain] A fire down below, Richard. Can we take it easy?

Richard: All right.Ok. Carol, let up a bit. Rod's getting sore.[whispers]Go at him even harder. If I know Rod this will be real Oscar stuff.[normal voice] Ok, nice and easy for Rod.

Carol: What's the matter, Spinelli? You want your mamma?

Rod: Uh-huh! I do! I WANT MY MAMMA! I WANT MY MAMMA!

[a boom mike is visible in the shot]

Richard: And cut! cut! Great on performance gang. But I got a boom mike in the shot. Hello? Ok, lets take it from the grab and do three in a row real quick. Ok? And action!

[scene plays, music sting, violent grabbing on Rod's nuts]

Carol: So who sold you the stuff, huh?

Rod: Yipe!!!

[music sting, violent ball grab]

Carol: Who sold you the stuff, huh?

Rod:[in pain] No, thank you!!

[music sting, violent ball grab]

Carol: Who sold you the stuff, huh?

Rod: Eeee-yaaak!

Richard: Great. We almost got it. Almost.

Rod: Richard, I'm getting some swelling. Could you come over here and take a look? I mean...

[Richard looks down Rod's pants]

Richard: Yikes! Is that from today?

Rod: I believe so. And it would in my best interest if we just moved on.

Richard: I can see what you mean. Gosh, I would hate to miss this shot, though. It really is the whole movie. Uh, could you give me one more?

Rod: No.

Richard: Tell you what. Let me talk it over with Carol. See what we come up with, all right? Carol, listen, Rod is losing it, ok? I'm in a real bind here. I don't think grabbing him is working. I don't know...

Carol: Well, why don't I just kick him?

Richard: I like it, I like it a lot. Rod, problem solved. She's not gonna squeeze you at all.

Rod: Great. As long as she doesn't come close to my testicle area, that'd be great. These babies are big, red and sore as hell.

Richard: And action! Go! Carol! Go!

[Carol kicks Rod square in the balls]

Rod: Cheese and biscuits!

Richard: And cut! Great! We got it, gang! We got it. That's a wrap! Unless you want another try Rod.

Rod: [in pain] No, no, no, no. I'm good. No, I'm gonna, just gonna go head on home and maybe catch a bite to eat or something. Maybe watch some tv and um,[Rod bends and picks up something from the floor] and, uh, uh, while I'm there, I might see if I can sew these babies back on.[Rod carries his swollen, red, black and blue balls in his hands]Yeah, yeah.[walks off]

[cheers and applause]
