"When you say 'photocopy machine,' what do you mean?"
That was Lawrence Patterson, then the acting head of information technology for the recorder's office, and that line of inanity goes back and forth for quite some time. The fine actors of the Upright Citizens Brigade here make it utterly hilarious. And it was pretty funny stuff at the time, but - maaan - the actors just really trump up the drama of the proceedings.
The climactic ending is just incredible.
(Scene's 2011 feature story goes long on the details of the photocopy absurdity.)
