"When you write a script, it's like delivering a great big beautiful plain pizza, the one with only cheese and tomatoes. And then you give it to the director, and the director says, "I love this pizza. I am willing to commit to this pizza. But I really think this pizza should have mushrooms on it." And you say, "Mushrooms! Of course!" And then someone else comes along and says, "I love this pizza too, but it really needs green peppers." - "Great," you say. "Green peppers. Just the thing." And then someone else says, "Anchovies." There is always a fight over the anchovies. And when you get done, what you have is a pizza with everything. Sometimes it's wonderful. And sometimes you look at it and you think, I knew I shouldn't have put the green peppers onto it. Why didn't I say so at the time?"
