"I was just thinking what an interesting concept it is to eliminate the writer from the artistic process. If we could just get rid of these actors and directors, maybe we've got something here."--Griffin Mill.

When he finally takes action, his cool aplomb deserts him, things go seriously sideways, and Griffin's world begins falling apart
