SP: I am a black actor. Definitely not the first, but probably the most famous.
SLO: Are you sure you’re not the first?
SP: I’m actually not positive, but that would be very weird if I were the first.
SLO: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.
SLO: No, that’s the movie you were… Oh, I get it. Very funny, Mr. Poitier, very funny.
SP: They call me Mr. Tibbs.
SLO: That was something you said in a movie?
SP: I believe so.
SLO: I am probably the most famous actor ever, right?
SLO: But here’s something interesting, try to name a movie I’ve been in.
SP: Lawrence of Arabia?
SLO: That’s a good guess. I may have been in that, but you might just be saying that because of the whole Laurence/Lawrence thing.
SLO: Mostly, I did a lot of Shakespeare stuff, both on film and on stage.
SP: Ever play Othello?
SP: Did you play him in blackface?
SLO: I, uh…excuse me, I think I’m getting a phone call.
[Sir Laurence removes a container of mints from his pocket and pretends it’s a cell phone. He looks at it and puts it back in his pocket.]
SLO: So… Did you see that Ashton Kutcher movie Guess Who, the remake of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?
SP: Yes, I thought it was better than the original.
SLO: As did I.
SP: Did you see Ashton in The Butterfly Effect?
SLO: Phenomenal work.
SLO: And now this new movie with him and Portman is coming out.
SP: Yeah, that looks good.
SLO: It’s gonna be funny it looks like.
