    CARMICHAEL: 1:00 on a Thursday. I'm sure I made it clear to you that the rent is always due, payable in full, by 1:00 on Wednesdays.

    PICARD: The play? A Midsummer Night's Dream. We have performed in London, Paris, Milan. Milan. To sold out houses. I assure you, you will have the rent, in full, with a bonus.

    CARMICHAEL: Oh, no, no, no, no. I've heard you silver-tongued devils before. I'll have the rent in full tomorrow by one o'clock or you'll be out performing on the street.

    [Back at Data's hotel room, Jack London opens door and enters followed by Samuel Clemens]

    LONDON: I wouldn't do this for just anybody, Mister Clemens. And I hope you won't spread it around that I let you in. People start talking.

    [Clemens starts searching the room.]

    CLEMENS: Of course not, Jack. And I assure you that Mister Data would be most upset if you didn't. If I can't find that Letter of Intent that he left me, our major investor is going to pull out and take his business elsewhere.

    CLEMENS: Oh, yes. Yes, this is exactly what it's all about. Ow! (he gets a shock from it)

    LONDON: You know, Mister Clemens, I'm going to do you another favour today. You're always looking for good stories, right? Well, I've got a real humdinger for you. The story of my life. Now, I know you may think I'm young, but I've covered a lot of ground and if I do say so myself, it'd make for some pretty fascinating reading. So, what do you think?

    CLEMENS: Young man, I have a maxim that I have always lived by. No one is more qualified to write your story than you are.

    LONDON: I'd like to do some travelling, maybe go to sea. And Alaska. I've had the strangest notion to go see Alaska.
