Talent Agent Foster Valley meets with his favorite ventriloquist partnership, Hot & Crispy, to deliver some news that might make at least one member of the team insecure and the other insignificant. Part one of two.
Preparing for the meeting:
Foster: Go put your name tag on and finish setting up the chairs, please.
Myrna: Yes, Mr. Valley. Any particular side you’d like it?
Foster: No, right in front.
Myrna: That could be a problem.
Foster: For who?
Myrna: Well, it’s really not intended to be anything other than fashionable, but you see how my top has a slightly revealing neckline?
Foster: No. And we don’t talk about things like that here …
Foster: Myrna. About our clients, yes, because, a revealing neckline, even slightly can make a difference in certain casting opportunities, but not with the staff. And more importantly, why are you telling me this?
Myrna: Because putting it right in front here would mean it would have to be partially on my chest skin.
Foster: Chest skin? What are you talking about?
Myrna: The location of my name tag. For it to be right in front, means, it goes right here on the skin on my chest part.
Foster: I was thinking about the chair. Not the name tag. The chair goes right in front. Of me. Of my desk. So that I can look Tommy right in his eyes. The name tag you can put on the side. Of your chest part skin.
