[Lynn] What was your favorite birthday?
My favorite birthday?
You mean my birthday right?
[Lynn] Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Oh! My favorite birthday
was the first time I ever worked in New York.
I was 18, I was doing a Tom Stoppard play on Broadway
called Arcadia, and
it was my 19th birthday and during the curtain call
Billy Crudup, who was in the play with us,
stopped the curtain call and told the whole audience
of 1500 people that it was my birthday,
and everyone sang me Happy Birthday.
It was amazing!
[Lynn] I'm really beginning to feel bad about my life
I've had such bad birthdays. No, don't!
That's really sad.
[Lynn] Well you've had a stage of people singing to you,
I've never had even like five.
Okay, well next time it's your birthday I'm going
[Lynn] to come and sing for you. Okay please.
And please bring others, like 400.
I will, I'll bring 1500 people.
