Adventures in Babysitting
2.13.2003 by , every Wednesday.
Nathan Lane comes over every Wednesday to the house to watch a movie, or just chat with Dan. Dan found these little chats so interesting, he decided to tape-record them and tell the world all the neat things Nathan had to say about movies and stuff.
Wednesday, February 14th, 1990
Adventures in babysitting (1989) (TV): Television pilot for a series that was never picked up. Based on the movie of the same name, it stars Jennifer Guthrie, Joey Lawrence, and Brian Austin Greene.
(it's Valentine's Day in 1990, and I brought my girlfriend at the time over to watch a tape of the TV version of Adventures in Babysitting. Nathan was there too.)
Me: Hey, Nathan, how are you?
Nathan: Hi, I'm Nathan Lane.
Me: Oh, sorry, this is Elizabeth. I thought she could watch the show with us. It's kind of a--
Elizabeth: Special day.
Nathan: Oh, of course.
(a really loud ringing)
Nathan: Oh, hold on, I think I might be getting a call on my enormous cell phone!
Me: Sorry there's no seats, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: Oh, that's all right.
Nathan: Hey, it's rock music on the phone, they're ready for the grunge revolution!
Elizabeth: Ha ha!
Me: What are you talking about?
Elizabeth: He's funny! Has he always been this funny?
Nathan: Let's ride our banana boards over to the video arcade!
Elizabeth: Oh, Dan, ha ha!
Me: Why are you laughing at him?
Nathan: Hammer time!
Me: I think you're hysterical.
Elizabeth: Oh, let me straighten my frilly pink dress. I was laughing so much it wasn't straight!
Nathan: I dress like Miami Vice!
Elizabeth: Yay, ha ha!
Me: Elizabeth, please.
Nathan: Everybody's humpin' around! Everybody!
Me: I think my watch is broken.
Nathan: Your what?
Me: My watch.
Nathan: Your what?
Elizabeth: C'mon Dan.
Me:...my Thundercats watch.
Nathan: That's right!
(a car horn from the driveway)
Nathan: Oh, that's Diana in her boxy Trans Am! I hope she brought Battle Bots and Hungry-Hungry Hippos!
Elizabeth: Oh, yay, can I get a ride home with you?
Me: But we--
Nathan: Sure, do you like--
(the door closed with a WHAM and Elizabeth walked out of my life forever.)
