Why do we have to choose sides?
Obama: It's like when someone dies in a rent controlled building - you gotta take immediate action.
Mclame: Yeeah, but Bashar and the Christian beheaders are going to need their grieving time.
Obama: Their grieving time is a luxury I can't afford. I'm calling the Christian beheaders tonight, and if you want a clean shot at Bashar, I suggest you do likewise.
Mclame: (Nodding) Yeah, yeah..
Obama: But we gotta make it seem like we're not calling for dates.
Mclame: Then why are we calling?
Obama: Good question. (More to himself than to Mclame) Why are we calling?
(Both start chanting "why are we calling..", thinking deeply)
Mclame: (Loud) Oh! (Obama has a surprised look) I've got it! I've got it! We're calling just to say, "I'm there for you."
Obama: (Nodding, trying it out) "I'm there for you."
Mclame: Then, after a period of being "there for you", we slowly remove the two words "for you", and we're just (Makes a "ta-da!" gesture) "there".
