Winners: Endeavor Agent Caption Contest

By | Tuesday November 13, 2007 @ 6:34am PST

So here’s what I have learned about all of you from this caption contest. That you really don’t like agents. That you hold them in contempt. That you don’t trust them. And that you’re all very psychologically damaged. Some of your answers made me groan. But a lot made me laugh out loud. A few made me fall off my chair. First, enjoy my favorites, then scroll down to see 3rd Place, 2nd Place, and 1st Place…

Writer: “Glad to see you Endeavored out here. Ha ha…”
Agent:  “And you ask why I can’t get you work?”

Writer: “Come on, you can’t take credit for the strike!”
Agent:  “No, seriously, I called Patric Verrone and told him you’d be perfect for it.”

Writer: “Eva Longoria took my picket sign.”
Agent:  “I’m sorry, she’s with CAA…”

Agent:  “As your agent I commend you for sticking up for what you believe is right.”
Writer: “Thanks.”
Agent:  “As your asshole, consider yourself dropped.”

Writer: “I’m writing a novel.”
Agent:  “Yeah, neither am I.”

Agent:  “Good news. You’re next in line for the new horror assignment everyone’s talking about.”
Writer: “What’s it called?
Agent:  “Force majeure.”

Writer: “You want to pitch a reality show?”
Agent:  “Look at the talent we’ve got here. It’ll write itself.”

Writer: “This is terrible. Looks like we’re in for a long stand-off.”
Agent:  “Yeah, it looks bad.”
Writer: “Then why are you smiling?”
Agent:  “Mark Burnett just sent me a hilarious email. Sorry, what were you saying?”

Writer: “10% of zero is zero.”
Agent:  “Wait, my Blackberry has a calculator. That doesn’t sound right.”

Agent:  “What happens if the producers hire scabs?”
Writer: “Take a look at the dialogue they’re writing in the … Read More »
