Mr. Elinoff: So, J. Peterman wants to hire some of our cartoonists to illustrate your catalog?
Elaine: Well we’re hoping that if perhaps that the catalog is a little funnier ,people won’t be so quick to return the clothes ha ha….For example.. I..I really do….Well I love this one
Elaine shows him the cartoon
Mr. Elinoff: Oh! yeah… That’s a rather clever jab at inter office politics don’t you think.
Elaine: Ahan, Ahan….yeah…Euh but, Why is it that the, that the animals enjoy reading the email?
Mr. Elinoff: Well Miss Benes . Cartoons are like gossamer and one doesn’t dissect gossamer. heh..hemm..
Elaine: Well you don’t have to dissect if you can just tell me. Why this is suppose to be funny?
Mr. Elinoff: Ha! It’s merely a commentary on contemporary mores. (slides the magazine to her)
Elaine: But, what is the comment. (she slides the magazine back to him)
Mr. Elinoff: It’s a slice of life.
Elaine: No it isn’t.
Mr. Elinoff: Pun?
Elaine: I don,t think so.
Mr Elinoff. Volstein?
Elaine: That’s not a word…..You have no idea what this means do you?
Mr Elinoff. No.
Elaine: Then why did you print it.
Mr. Elinoff: I liked the kitty.
Elaine: (gets up) You know what? You people should be ashamed of yourself, you know ya doodle a couple of bears at a cocktail party talking about the stock market. You think you’re doing comedy.
Mr. Elinoff: Actually that’s not bad..
Elaine: Oh! really (laughs) well you know… I have others.
