Dan Aykroyd: Mack Sennett
[Chaplin tells Sennett he intends to leave Sennett's employ and open his own studio]
Mack Sennett : Charlie, I've been so rotten to you. I don't know if you can forgive me. I forced you to leave Butte, Montana. I made you accept a hundred and fifty per. You mentioned directing and I stuffed that down your throat too. Now tell me how else Uncle Mack can make it up to you!
Charlie Chaplin : I want to run my own show, Mack.
Mack Sennett : Don't kid yourself, Chaplin. You're not that big.
[spits on the floor, missing the spitoon]
Charlie Chaplin : That's the first time I've ever seen you miss, Mack.
[Sennett is explaining the film industry to Chaplin as Rollie edits a film]
Mack Sennett : Now I know this is all new to ya, but remember something, we're all new. This is not an ancient industry. This whole place here is built around speed. Start the story, start the chase. I get bored easy.
Rollie Totheroh : How much you reckon Mack? Couple yards of Mabel?
Mack Sennett : Hmm, yeah. Nah, make it three. But don't go thinking we sacrifice quality. I never make more than two motion pictures a week, but I'll spend up to a thousand dollars on each of 'em if I have to.
