– I hear you’ve got a pilot that plays well in (gestures to map of America) every demographic.
– Success is making yourself indispensable. America needs the Phawongo right now.
– But this is unbelievable: The militant left, neonatals, even the silent majority is screaming for more Phawongo.
– The Phawongo, he’s a high concept monster with a heart.
– Greg, my hands are getting clammy, my eyes are watering up. I think my heart just decided to move out of the house. I’m that excited.
– The way I see it the Phawongo may eat little kids but he doesn’t napalm villages. He doesn’t burn hooches.

– He’s fun too, you know. He’s downtown. He may be the first high concept monster who knows how to get down.
– But no drugs right? And believe me when I say I really, really want drugs in primetime.
– No drugs. He’s clean cut but he’s downtown. He’s like a historic downtown monster: think Italy, think Venice.
