Girl: You look familiar. Franco: I dunno. Have we met? Girl: I saw you on screen an hour ago. Franco: On the street? Girl: No! On the movie screen! You were in the movie we just saw! Girl 2: I loved it. I'm [Name redacted]. Girl: I'm [Name redacted]. It's a pleasure to meet you. Franco: Hi. I'm James. Girl 2: Where are you from? Franco: Well I'm moving here to New York City very soon ... Publicist (interrupting): You know girls, this is the Daily News right here ...
