Getting Laid In A Way That Pleases God

Dead Beat made the mistake of mentioning summer movies. A subject dear to Mamet's heart.

"I read too many 'summer movie' novels," Dead Beat complains.

"Summer movies. I'm fascinated by summer movies. I think they're the equivalent of the state fair. At the state fair, we go to see the latest in technology, the special effects. We also go to see the prize heifers, the movie stars. We go to get a touch of the sordid or louche in the hoochie-koochie shows. And the state fair goes back to the Grecian and pre-Grecian summer festivals, much as you went to the Eleusinian mysteries to get laid in a way that pleases God."

"So what are you saying, Mamet?"

"A place for everything and everything in its place."

"Special effects and hoochie-koochie?"

"You bet ya. We all need a little hoochie-koochie, Dead Beat."

"Prize heifers?"

"Don't push it, Dead Beat, no names being offered."
