Gilda Radner: Lydia. I was just passing by your dressing room…
Elliot Gould: Oh, yeah. She’s an old friend, an old friend of mine.
Gilda Radner: She’s very pretty.
Elliot Gould: (trying to get off the subject) Yeah, right.
Gilda Radner: What does she do?
Elliot Gould: She used to be a model.
Gilda Radner: Oh. Do you like her?
Elliot Gould: Well, she’s an old friend and whenever I’m passing through New York I always try to see her.
Gilda Radner: Okay. Um, I just want you to know that I meant everything I said last night. And I know that you know that you meant everything you said last night.
