"I performed a tracheoctomy with a ballpoint pen ..." Genius.

Wonder was it scripted?

Schmutzie said...

"You can call me Iggy or Jim or Jimmy or me Iggy."

"Sorry I'm late Jim."

I don't know if it was scripted or not because they're both so damned good.

"You ordered for me?"

" that, like cool?"

"Oh sure yeah, I'll have coffee."

Is that an edgy conversation or what?

My friend LentenStuffe asked me if this was scripted, and I'm still not sure.

The movie, "Coffee & Cigarettes" came out in 2003. It's by Jim Jarmusch, and it has a bunch of these little vignettes with various people we love.

I'm going to post some more of them as my nicotine withdrawal becomes more life threatening to those around me.

As for this clip, I don't know if they're ad-libbing or not, it's so fucking good. I've watched it maybe 10 times, and each time I think Iggy is better than Tom, or Tom is funnier, or they're both great....

"Ya know, we're the coffee and cigarettes generation. Now the 40s was the pie and coffee generation."

"Yeah. Like Abbott and Costello..."

That's just great shit.
