"You wouldn't-"\\
Dire: "HA, NO. RELAX. [[GenreSavvy TOO MUCH]] [[RomanticComedy ROMCOM]] POTENTIAL FOR DIRE'S TASTES. BESIDES, IT WOULDN'T WORK OUT.

** Also Taylor's reaction to Dire and Danny Hebert getting along so well:
--> "Union Rep?" I asked.\\
"YES. QUITE A NICE FELLOW. DIDN'T EXPECT HIM TO KNOW SIGN LANGUAGE. MADE THE NEGOTIATIONS MUCH EASIER, DIDN'T HAVE TO WAIT ON A TRANSLATOR."\\
