The clip Interview with Dr. Lester from Being John Malkovich (1999) with Mary Kay Place, John Cusack
Come in, Mr. Juarez.
My name is Craig Schwartz, Dr. Lester.
No, sir, it's just a little mix-up with your secretary.
My name is Craig Schwartz. I tried to explain that to her.
She's not my secretary.
She's what they call an executive liaison.
And I am not banging her, if that's what you're implying.
No, sir, not at all. I think I must have simply misspoke.
Well, now, tell me, Dr. Schwartz what do you feel you can bring to Lestercorp?
Well, sir, I'm an excellent filer.
Are you? All right. Let's see about that.
Which of these two letters comes first? This one or this one?
The symbol on the left is not a letter, sir.
Damn, you're good.
I was trying to trick you.
Well then, put these in order.
Floris, get Guinness on the phone.
Yes, sir. Genghis Khan Capone. Fine.
Damn fine woman, Floris.
I don't know how she puts up with this speech impediment of mine.
You don't have a speech impediment, Dr. Lester.
Flattery will get you everywhere, my boy.
I'm afraid I have to trust Floris on that one.
You see, she's got her doctorate in Speech lmpedimentology from Case Western.
I apologize if you can't understand a word I'm saying.
No, I understand perfectly.
It's very kind of you to lie.
