R-PATTZ in METHOD 101 (not directed by Bill Condon)
R-Pattz: OK, um, class. Let’s start with Percy Bysshe Shelley. One of the brooding-ist of the Romantic Poets. [shakes head, tousling his dusky mane] And the dude had great hair. I hope you guys came in character.
Student #1: [shouts out] I tried to drown myself in the Med last week!
Student #2: [mumbles] Apple polisher.
R-Pattz: Awesome. [long pause] We’re all, ummm, uh, committed to ah, um, commitment. Or we wouldn’t be soakin’ up these Festival rays. [opens book] “Ode to the West Wind.” [long pause] Funny. That sounds like, um.. [trails off] I always wanted to be on that show “The West Wing.” But they have to talk so fast. And being um, inarticulate, ummmm, it’s, kind of, my thing.
Student #3: Our thing.
R-Pattz: Right. [in his best Al Pacino] This thing of ours. Where were we? Umm, poetry. Yeah. [recites]
As thus with thee in prayer in my sore need.
Oh! lift me as a wave, a leaf, a cloud!
I fall upon the thorns of life! I brood!
Student #4: I bleed.
R-Pattz: We all bleed in Method 101, Markowitz. What’s your point?
Markowitz: It’s bleed. ‘I fall upon the thorns of life. I bleed.’
R-Pattz: Ummm, I don’t think you’re getting it. I mean, there are lots of B-words, but give me the big Kahuna.
Markowitz : Brando?
R-Pattz: [considers] OK. Half point. And what would the big man upstairs say?
Class: [as one] Just brood, baby.
