Michael Caine and Aubrey Plaza in a sceen from 'Best Sellers'
- Can you just please humor me?
- OK, go on then.
- Mr. Shaw, what is your book about?
- Well, it's about 350 pages.
- That's very funny, Mr. Shaw. It's been what, 40 years since anyone has seen or heard from you? What have you been up to all this time?
- Well, I've been drinking. Cheers.
- You can't drink on television, Harris. This is going to happen tomorrow.
- I'm going to ask you again. Harris, it's been a really long time since anyone's seen you. What have you been up to all this time?
- (WHISPERING) God dammit.
- The-- why publish now, huh? What was the inspiration for this new book?
- Well, I didn't have a lot else to do anyway, so, you know--
- Money and boredom.
- Yeah. If you're really bored, you start writing, so you might as well make some money.
- See, people have switched the channel by now. You wrote your new book because of money.
- Yeah, money.
- You know despite your mantra--
- I needed money.
- The very popular hashtag "bull-bleep," is sweeping the nation, but I've read the book and I happen to think that there's an element of truth behind those words. That's right, a profound, deeper meaning that you're getting at.
- Toffee-nosed git.
- You can't call the host names.
- I'm not talking to the host.
Go ahead, give me an example of the truth in my book.
- You want to know what I think?
- Yeah. Well, you said you knew about the truth. Tell me the bloody truth.
