Level 41 Edit

  • The next scene is "Prohibited Love".
  • Maggie enters the studio.
  • Maggie: Hey everybody... um... thank you so much for being here.
  • Maggie: As you can see, we're a pretty small team, even for an indie movie.
  • The technician enters the studio for delivery.
  • Maggie: That means this won't be your typical set wit the trailers and a big fancy craft services table.
  • Another technician enters for delivery.
  • Maggie: It also means some of you will be doing double duty.
  • "Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for the job..."
  • "...but Al Jr. is threatening to blacklist anyone who will work on your movie."
  • Technicians drop the packages.
  • Maggie: Well, um, I wouldn't want any of you to jeopardize their careers.
  • Maggie: So if any of you have concerns about this, you can just walk away. No hard feelings.
  • Some people leave the studio.
  • Maggie: To all of you that still stayed.... thank you from the bottom of my heart.
  • Maggie: Now, let's make the greatest vintage crime movie ever!

During the levelEdit

  • Maggie cleans up the boxes abandoned by the crew to remodel.

  • Vicki: You're making a movie and you didn't bother to call me?
  • Maggie: I'm practically making this on my credit cards, and I didn't want to get you in trouble with Al Jr.
  • Vicki: Oh yeah? Watch this...
  • Vicki calls Al.
  • Vicki: Hey, Al?
  • Vicki: I quit!
  • Then Vicki hangs up.
  • Vicki: That's one problem solved... and look, whatever you can afford, it's fine.
  • Maggie: You're serious? Oh my gosh! Thank you so much!
  • Vicki: It's my pleasure - I'll do whatever you need.
  • Maggie: Whatever I need?
  • Vicki: I see your gears turning...
  • Maggie: Vicki, WE'RE calling the shots now - not Al Jr. and the rest of the Boys Club.
  • Maggie: You're an actress. It's time to get you in FROMT of the camera again.
  • Maggie: I would love to cast you as the supportive actress.
  • Vicki: You know what? Let's start right now!
  • Vicki changes the clothing for the scene.
  • Vicki: Wow, back on the stage. After all those years...
  • Vicki: Please don't give me anything too ambitious right from the bat, okay?

Level 42Edit

  • Maggie: OK. We have Italian cuisine to highlight the atmosphere of immigrant quarter in 20s.
  • Maggie: But we still need to get that antique car for some of the scenes.
  • Vicki: We can shoot the car scenes later.
  • Vicki: Don't worry, one problem at a time, Maggie. Everything will be fine in the end.

  • Catherine: This script... I love it!
  • Catherine: You have to let me play Veronica.
  • Maggie: The lead? Catherine... I don't know what to say.
  • Maggie: You know this is an indie project, right?
  • Maggie: I could offer you some equity in the film...
  • Catherine: Tut, tut - we'll figure out all that boring stuff later.
  • Catherine: I love that it's a small, scrappy project - gets me back to my acting roots.
  • Maggie: I really don't know what to say...
  • Catherine: You can say you are giving me the part.

  • Maggie: Say, do you think we could see what YOU look like with a moustache?
  • Vicki looks agreed.

Level 43Edit

  • Maggie: I'm a big fan of your work... your EARLY work.
  • Maggie: I know you've been struggling with personal problems, lately.
  • Maggie: It's affected your work...
  • Frank: I don't have to listen to...

  • Diego: I'm here to help you with your movie.
  • Maggie: Are you serious?
  • Maggie: Thank you so much! But...
  • Maggie: ...but what about the cinema?
  • Diego: The theatre made some extra money during last few weeks and Ted is renovating it.
  • Diego: He said that I'm useless there.
  • Diego: You know, Ted liked doing things his way.
