The clip 7 1/2th Floor Story from Being John Malkovich (1999) Welcome to the 71/2 floor of the Mertin-Flemmer building. As you'll now be spending your workday here it's important that you learn a bit about the history of this famous floor. -Hello, Don. -Hello, Wendy. Don, I was wondering, do you know why our workplace has such low ceilings? It's an interesting story. Many years ago in the late 1800s James Mertin, an Irish ship captain, came to this town and decided to erect an office building. He called this building the Mertin-Flemmer building after himself and someone else, who local legend has it was named Flemmer. Well, one day, old Captain Mertin received an unexpected visitor. Captain Mertin? Aye. What want ye, girl child? I'm not a child, but rather an adult lady of miniature proportions. I see. Well, if it's charity you're after be gone with ye, you foul demon! I'm not asking for alms, Captain but, rather, the ear of a kind man with a noble heart. Well, speak then, if you must. Captain Mertin, I'm afraid that the world was not built with me in mind. Doorknobs are too high, chairs are unwieldy and high-ceilinged rooms mock my stature. Why cannot there be a place for me to work that's safe and comfortable? Thy story has moved me like no other. Therefore, I shall make ye me wife. And I shall build a floor for ye between the seventh and the eighth in me own building so at least there'll be one place on God's green earth where ye and your accursed kind can live in peace. So that's the story of 71/2.

The clip Craig takes over Malkovich Part 3 from Being John Malkovich (1999) with Cameron Diaz Wanting to be John Malkovich. I see. Well, perhaps you can. But, Dr. Lester... I am not Dr. Lester. I am Captain Mertin. I don't understand. It was 90 years ago that I discovered a strange portal. And I found that this portal led to a vessel body and that I could live forever by leaping from vessel to vessel. So Dr. Lester is such a vessel? Yes, he is. You still there, sweets? I figured out how to hang on as long as I want. It's all a matter of making friends with the Malkovich body. Rather than thinking of it as an enemy that has to be pounded into submission l've begun imagining it as a really expensive suit that I enjoy wearing. This illustrates how I will move into my next vessel, Malkovich on his 44th birthday.
