[Dr. Dre's "What's the Difference?" Instrumental Version plays in background]

[Eminem:] Heyyy!
[Steve Berman:] Hey, EM, what's up?
[Eminem:] Steve Berman. What's goin' on, man, how you doin? Good to see you again. Whassup?
[Steve Berman:] EM, could you come here and have a seat, please?
[Eminem:] Umm, yeah, what's...
[Steve Berman:] Vannessa, shut the door.
[Secretary] Okay.
[Eminem:] So what's up? How's orders looking for the first week?
[Steve Berman:] It would be better if you gave me nothing at all.
[Eminem:] Wh-
[Steve Berman:] This album is less than nothing. I can't sell this f*cking record.
[Eminem:] Wha-
[Steve Berman:] Do you know what's happening to me out there?
[Eminem:] Wh-wha-what's the problem?
[Steve Berman:] Violent Ground told me to go f*ck myself!
[Eminem:] Who's Violent... ?
[Steve Berman:] Tower Records told me to shove this record up my ass! Do you know what it feels like to be told to have a record shoved up your ass?
[Eminem:] But, I-
[Steve Berman:] I'm gonna lose my f*ckin' job over this. You know why Dre's record was so successful? He's rappin' about big-screen TV's, blunts, 40's and b*tches. You're rappin' about homosexuals and Vicadin.
[Eminem:] I mean...
[Steve Berman:] I can't sell this sh*t!
[Eminem:] What...
[Steve Berman:] Either change the record or it's not coming out!
[Eminem:] What, I...
[Steve Berman:] Now get the f*ck out of my office!
[Eminem:] What am I supposed...
[Steve Berman:] NOW!
[Eminem:] Alright man, whatever.
