My friends call me Johnny.
1. Pigozzi: So I’m one of those obsessed by groupies because I think that airplane-pilots have groupies. Writers have groupies.
2. Stahl: Why is it that you get the kind of groupies who want to talk during Sex.
3. Pigozzi: That’s a Nightmare.
4. Stahl: Well, it’s easy for me.
5. Pigozzi: Really? Do you have stalkers?
6. Stahl: I’ve had a stalker. Funny you should say that. Yes.
7. Pigozzi: Really?
8. Stahl: Yes, I’ve had some stalkers in my day, yeah. It’s very strange. I mean, clearly. You have a stalker?
9. Pigozzi: Yeah.
10. Stahl: No wonder you’re nervous. What Country?
11. Pigozzi: Russia.
12. Stahl: You have a Russian stalker?
13. Pigozzi: Yeah. A woman.
14. Stahl: Are they in Russia?
15. Pigozzi: I hope so.
16. Stahl: Wow.
17. Pigozzi: I asked my Russian friend, though.
18. Stahl: It’s funny because before you came there was this woman named Zvetlana.
19. Pigozzi: Zvetlana.
20. Stahl: Who knocked on the door and said.
21. Pigozzi: Could be her.
22. Stahl: Yeah.
23. Pigozzi: It could be her.
24. Stahl: How did she become obsessed with you aside from Good Looks, Money, and Connexions?
25. Pigozzi: I met her at the Cannes Film Festival.
26. Stahl: Of course you did.
27. Pigozzi: And she had very Beautiful arms. [Nomi Prins. Émy Guerrini. Lauren Whitehead. Alexandra Daddario. Alice Eve. Najla Saïd. Rania Khalek. Keeley Hazell.]
28. Stahl: Oh~. You.
29. Pigozzi: And I succumbed.
30. Stahl: You succumbed to her loving arms.
31. Pigozzi: And then she's become completely, completely crazy.
I tell you, it was one moment I would have loved to forget in my Career.
32. Stahl: We all have a few of those. If you only have one moment, you’re a lucky man. [Accurate.]
33. Pigozzi: There’s a few more than one.
34. Stahl: I have years I’d like to block out.
35. Pigozzi: Really?
36. Stahl: Oh my god, are you kidding me?
37. Pigozzi: Really?
38. Stahl: Sure. Happily I can’t remember them, so it sort of happened anyway.
