I just wanted to say that I'm very happy for you. And everyone's gonna miss you who doesn't hate you for getting that big job.
Ah, you're doing fine. Keep it up, you'll be a creative director by 1980.
God, that sounds like a long time.
I'm telling you, it will happen. They just have to get used to the idea. Someday, people are going to brag that they worked with you.
What am I supposed to say to that?
I don't know. No one's ever said it to me.
