Meeting No. 2 and Ruprecht

Tomorrow James and I have our second meeting with the movie producer. The whole thing is still very foggy, but we have our hopes!

We've been working on developing an idea for her, and one night we got to talking about good con movies (what we're developing isn't a con movie). This clip is funnier in the context of the movie (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), but stand alone is still hilarious. In this scene Michael Caine is trying to seduce Diana, and Steve Martin (who is his con artist pupil) is trying to foil Caine by playing his insane younger brother.

How can you not love lines like, "May I take your trident, sir?" and "Now Diana as you were saying, you don't think the poor should be allowed in museums?"
