[JUDD APATOW AWAKES IN BED, TREMBLING. HE ROLLS OVER TO TAKE COMFORT IN THE PRESENCE OF HIS PARTNER.]

Judd Apatow: I had that dream again…

Adam McKay: The one where you're reliving Todd Philips' career, post-Old Schooldiv>
Apatow: Yeah.

McKay: It's okay, sweetums.

[THEY BEGIN TO SPOON.]

Apatow: Adam…. what if one day I make a Starsky & Hutch

McKay: Jesus, Judd. You've made movies like Anchorman, Knocked Up, Superbad, and Talladega Nights. You are literally balls deep in street cred.

Apatow: But what about Drillbit Taylor?!? I need to make another classic now! Right now! Where's Rogen?!?

Seth Rogen: Right here, chief.

Apatow: Seth, why are you sleeping on my floor??

Rogen: I was out buying some new retro, classic rock t-shirts and got tired. Since I still had your spare key, I figured the Judd Apatow wouldn't mind if his leading man crashed at his pad.

Apatow: Whatever, let's brainstorm. I was thinking something along the lines of a stoner comedy with a thinly veiled life lesson.

Rogen: How about like "get a stranger pregnant and then learn to like her because she's hotter than you" or something??

Apatow: We did that one. You were there.

Rogen: Oh. Right. Well come on people, we need a plot here.

Apatow: Wait, a whatdiv>
Paul Rudd: A plot, my good sir, is a summary of…

McKay: Paul? Where the- ugh, nevermind.

Rogen: We need our movie to tell some sort of story throughout the film. It's called a plot.

Apatow: Listen, I've been making movies for over 15 years and I've never heard of that word.

McKay: Maybe Will could help us out. I'll send him our ideas so far.

Apatow: Okay, so what do you guys suggest for this "plot" idea?

[SUDDENLY, THE WALLS START TO TREMBLE AND DISHES FALL FROM SHELVES. THE DOORBELL RINGS. THE GROUP ANSWERS THE DOOR TO FIND ANOTHER CAST MEMBER.]

Jonah Hill: I'll do a cameo, man!

Apatow: Good God, Jonah. Have you just been continuously eating since we wrapped Superbad?

Hill: Yeah, man.

[MINUTES AFTER ASKING WILL FERRELL FOR A GENEROUSLY PAID CAMEO APPEARANCE, ADAM MCKAY RECEIVES A TEXT MESSAGE THAT SIMPLY READS, "LOL NO."]

McKay: Will says he'll think about it.
