Robert DeNiro: Yeah?
Martin Scorsese: Bobby! It's Marty!
RD: Hey.
MS: How're you doing?
RD: Good, good.
MS: How's the wife?
RD: Good.
MS: Listen, Bobby, I got this new picture.
RD: Yeah.
MS: Have you heard about this book "The Last Temptation of Christ"?
RD: Yeah, uh, Nicholas Katzenberg, or...
MS: Nikos Kazantzakis!
RD: Yeah...you're doing that?
MS: Yes! I'm doing the Jesus picture!
RD: Yeah.
MS: I've already got Harvey as Judas.
RD: Harvey, Judas...that's good, that works.
MS: Yes! Now listen Bobby, I want you...
RD: No.
MS: I want you to be my Jesus.
RD: No.
MS: Come on, Bobby. I mean, Jesus, it's Jesus.
RD: I don't...
MS: Bobby...
RD: I don't think I could do it.
MS: Bobby, don't say that.
RD: Marty...
MS: Bobby, Harvey is Judas!
RD: Yeah.
MS: Don't you remember Mean Streets? It's pretty much the same thing...
RD: Marty...
MS: ...except 2000 earlier. And you won't have to put on any weight.
RD: Marty...
MS: Bobby?
RD: I can't do it.
MS: You're breaking my heart, here, Bobby.
RD: I can't do it. I'm sorry.
MS: Well, then my question to you is this: who can?
RD: Marty...
MS: You want me to get Max Von Sydow... is that what you want, Bobby? Maybe Jeffrey Hunter?
RD: Marty, come on.
MS: You are breaking my heart, Bobby.
RD: I still love you, Marty.
MS: (sighs) I didn't want it to come to this... but you were terrible in The Untouchables.
RD: Marty!
MS: And Angel Heart! What was that? You were Satan!? You damn well better play Jesus after that.
RD: Goodbye, Marty.
MS: Bye, Bobby.

1999 Phone call
by cbrad

MARTY SCORSESE: Dante wants to build the set in Rome.
HarveyWeinstein: No, San Diego.
MS: Come on Harvey, how am I suppose to recreate 19th century New York in San Diego?
HW: Dante could do it.
MS: It's in Rome or I go to another studio.
HW: Has to be under 80.
MS: 120 is what we originally agreed on!
HW: Well now its 80.
MS: You manipulative little... well if its 80 mil then I'm shooting in Rome.
HW: You take a 44% pay cut and you can shoot in Rome.
MS: If I take a pay cut I get final cut w/o any interference.
HW: Can't be more than 140 minutes.
MS: 160.
HW: 140.
MS: No, damnit, I said 160.
HW: 140. Marty, I got some other calls here.
MS: 140 and I cast whoever for Amsterdam.
HW: Ashton Kuscher or no deal.
MS: Ashton who?
HW: The kid from that show about what it was like to live in the 70s.
MS: You're turning my fucking hair gray.
HW: It already is.
MS: I want Day-Lewis for the Butcher.
HW: Good luck getting him. Besides, I promised the part to someone else.
MS: Who?
HW: Hugh Grant.
MS: Hugh Grant? I'm hanging up.
HW: I really can't talk right now either-
MS: Okay, here's the deal. I shoot in Rome, Dante gets to do whatever he wants, I get Day-Lewis and whomever else I deem worthy of the supporting cast, and rights to distribute the film internationally.
HW: I think not. You can have the rights for Burma.
MS: Do they even import film?
HW: I very much doubt it.
MS: I'm going to need a year for principal and atleast 8 months in post.
HW: Hahah, right.
MS: And most of the crew is vegetarian-
HW: We're sending snack packs and rice cakes for the craft service tables. And Bob has a few cases of RC Cola in the basement we're going to have sent over. You're going to have to get your own ice though.
MS: Alright, well, I'm going to try to go make this thing now.
HW: Good luck! Don't fuck it up.

Boo.

 :?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.
