            Wendy,
                   (clears throat)
            let me explain something to you.
            Whenever you come in here and
            interrupt me, you're breaking my
            concentration.

JACK hits his forehead with his hand.

                         JACK (CONT'D)
            you're distracting me,

He picks up sheet of paper and tears it up.  Then he throws
the pieces down.

                         JACK (CONT'D)
            and it will then take me time to
            get back to where I was, understand?

            Fine.  Now we're going to make a

            and you hear me typing,

JACK taps typewriter keys.

                         JACK (CONT'D)
            or whether you don't hear me
            typing, whatever the fuck you hear
            me doing in here, when I am in here
            that means that I am working - that
            means don't come in.  Now do you
            think you can handle that?

            Fine.  Why don't you start right
            now and get the fuck out of here,
            hmm?
