A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
[Jeff] Do you habla Espanol?
[Lila] Yeah, of course.
[Jeff] Okay. Take it from the top then, and don't Americanize the Spanish. Let me hear the real deal, okay? Let me hear the Latino sabor.
[Lila] Hola. I am Lila Rodriguez. The Cinco de Mayo fiesta is the fastest growing Mexican holiday in the United States.
[Jeff] That's what I'm talking about. Okay? Remember, Ricardo Montalban would have no career if he had no accent. Comprendo?
[Lila] That's true!
[Ellen] Yes, honey.
[Steven] Ellen, how could you hire those people?
[Ellen] Steven, they are Mexicans from Home Station.
[Steven] They are from in front of Home Station. And they are illegal Mexicans from Guatemala and Honduras. It was a really stupid thing to do.
Guatemalans and Hondurans are not Mexicans.
[Ellen] These guys will paint the exterior and the interior for the budget you gave me.
[Cata] How moody! Eat your heuvos rancheros.
[Steven] Are you doing this on purpose? You didn't think this could ruin my career?
[Ellen] That's all you think about. You're getting worse than your dad. If we use regular Mexicans, it's going to cost a lot more.
