The next actor to come onto the stage was Joe.
Casting Director: Hi. Thanks for coming in.
Joe: Hi. My name is Joe. Joe Romano. I'm here to read the thing I picked up outside with the lines.
Casting Director: That's called the audition scene.
Joe: Right. The one that says Romeo. I'm going to read that, because I saw the one that said Juliet, and I was like, not this guy. I'm not a Juliet.
Casting Director: Of course not. You'll be reading with Roger. He'll do the part of Juliet.
Joe: *Backs up, surprised* Whoa whoa whoa! You're going to read a lady's part? That's so stupid.
Casting Director: Can you just read the lines?
Joe: Okay, but uh, *Looks at Roger* Good luck buddy, because right now, you'll need it.
Casting Director: Start where it says My sweet.
Joe: Okay. Give me a moment. *Turns around, pounding his chest, and does five jumping jacks. He turns around, and looks at Roger again*
Joe: *Slams his foot on the ground* MY SWEET!!!
Roger: *Scared* What o clock tomorrow shall I send to thee?
Joe: *Picks up Roger* BY THE HOUR OF 9!!! FRIGGIN' 9!!! OKAY?!!?!
Casting Director: Okay, I'm just going to stop you right there.
Joe: *Calms down* I was just about to get to the good stuff.
Casting Director: I feel like we're going down the wrong road here.
Joe: *Angry* Excuse me?
Casting Director: You're playing this scene with a lot of anger.
Casting Director: This is the balcony scene. This is where Romeo declares his love for Juliet. It should be passionate.
Joe: Yeah, passionate. Like, I love you so much, I wanna punch a wall!!
Casting Director: I don't think Romeo will punch a wall.
Joe: I know that when I'm in love, I'm like, I love you so much, LET'S DO PUSH-UPS!!!! *Does three push-ups, and quickly stands up*
Casting Director:....Well, thank you for coming in.
Joe: You're welcome. Do I get the part?
Casting Director: Stop by tomorrow at 11, and we'll let you know. One more thing, I might suggest you go into therapy.
Joe: Therapy? Not this guy. *Points at himself with a thumb* Not this guy!!! *Leaves*
