A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
[Newsperson] NBA officials in the state, however, say they anticipate no disruptions.
[Steven] Give me some Spanish words: "familia," "que pasa," "cinco de mayo." How do you say, "We really miss you"? "Vengo pronto ja."
[Nick] Don't you think we should just keep it English only?
[Steven] What if they're listening? No, I have this feeling it will be a nice touch.
[Nick] Well, your 9:00 with Senator Shaw has been canceled. It is kind of great that he's gone, though, isn't it? The path is clear.
Senator Shaw is a "Closet Latino"
[Ellen] Anyone for Chinese? Floteria is closed.
[Nick] Ellen, can you and Tracy make a press conference tomorrow morning?
[Ellen] Sure, school's closed anyway. My friend Monica is gone. She was normal. She was just like me.
[Steven] Monica's from Argentina. And Chinese will be fine, thank you. Make it spicy.
[Nick] Isn't it ironic? Hating them got you Senator, now loving them can get you governor.
[Steven] My father must be turning over in his grave.
[Ellen Abercrombie, Governor Pro-Tem's Wife] There are still people who blame Steven for what happened. I don't think that's fair. My husband was a passionate campaigner against illegal immigration. Why is it that every rich white man who is against minorities is labeled a racist? California voted for him.
