Kinda random, but whatever. The interaction here springs to my mind from time to time and I nearly laugh out loud about it. So many priceless lines that are of the type one would love to say at work while walking off the job. "This is a lot of SHIT, you know that, don't you?" "You people are such PESTS!"

The Joss Whedon script for Serenity, where Wash lives, is Serenity-190pages.pdf at www.mediafire.com/folder/1uwh75oa407q8/Firefly


That audio needs some context, otherwise it is just a quarrelsome, over-paid, old actor with a deep voice bullying a technician about a script that the tech did not write.
Quote:

Beginning in the late 1970s, Welles participated in a series of famous television commercial advertisements. For two years he was on-camera spokesman for the Paul Masson Vineyards, and sales grew by one third during the time Welles intoned what became a popular catchphrase: "We will sell no wine before its time." He was also the voice behind the long-running Carlsberg "Probably the best lager in the world" campaign, promoted Domecq sherry on British television and provided narration on adverts for Findus, though the actual adverts have been overshadowed by a famous blooper reel of voice recordings, known as the Frozen Peas reel.

Wiki analyzes Orson Welles' blooper at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frozen_Peas

I can see why Welles was pissed off while doing commercials: "Welles was cremated by prior agreement with the executor of his estate, Greg Garrison, whose advice about making lucrative TV appearances in the 1970s made it possible for Welles to pay off a portion of the taxes he owed the IRS." A dying old fat man doing crap commercials, rather than playing Shakespeare's Falstaff, to pay the IRS.

Yes, I am at least vaguely aware of the context.

I'll take that as a compliment, I love Orson Welles.

Though I admit I never will see what people see in Citizen Caine...
