The Silver Lake Picture Show is a new community group that puts on public outdoor movie screenings. They’ve taken over the Sunset Triangle Plaza this summer for movie screenings themed around Los Angeles. The inaugural movie was my favorite Who Framed Roger Rabbit w/ Victoria Vu, Cole Stephenson, and Donald-Bradley Urquidez.
Eddie Valiant: You crazy rabbit! I’m out there risking my neck for you, and what are you doing? Singing and dancing!
Roger Rabbit: But I’m a toon. Toons are supposed to make people laugh.
Eddie Valiant: Sit down!
Roger Rabbit: You don’t understand. Those people needed to laugh.
Eddie Valiant: Then when they’re done laughing, they’ll call the cops. That guy Angelo would rat on you for a nickel.
Roger Rabbit: Not Angelo. He’d never turn me in.
Eddie Valiant: Why? Because you made him laugh?
Roger Rabbit: That’s right! A laugh can be a very powerful thing. Why, sometimes in life, it’s the only weapon we have.
Doom: Several months ago I had the good providence to stumble upon this plan of the city council’s. A construction plan of epic proportions. They’re calling it a freeway.
Eddie: Freeway? What the hell’s a freeway?
Doom: Eight lanes of shimmering cement running from here to Pasadena. Smooth, safe, fast. Traffic jams will be a thing of the past.
Eddie: So that’s why you killed Acme and Maroon? For this freeway? I don’t get it.
Doom: Of course not. You lack vision. I see a place where people get on and off the freeway. On and off, off and on, all day, all night. Soon, where Toontown once stood will be a string of gas stations, inexpensive motels, restaurants that serve rapidly prepared food, tire salons, automobile dealerships, and wonderful, wonderful billboards reaching as far as the eye can see! My God! It’ll be beautiful.
Eddie: Come on! Nobody’s gonna drive this lousy freeway when they can take the Red Car for a nickel.
Doom: Oh, they’ll drive. They’ll have to. You see, I bought the Red Car so I could dismantle it.
