Having worked on scripts that were never allowed to leave the studio’s premises, that were under armed guard at all times, and where all personal devices were prohibited to ensure there was a super-secure air-gap, I’m very surprised he was allowed to walk around with the MBA at all.

My guess is that the MBA had a “joke” script on it as a decoy in case it got mislaid or stolen, and somehow it got mixed up with the real script before filming. I can think of no other explanation.

Bitterness doesn’t fade. Time just makes it thicker until its concentration gives it a sweetness you want to apply to everything.

No, wait... I’m thinking of balsamic vinegar.
