There’s no way to the king.
Seth’s reaction to the pitch? “The words, I was like, ‘Is that a good thing to say?'”
They stare at Judd, and Seth is worried about the outcome of the heavy moment. “Will he bite? Will I bite? Can we get out of it? Do we have the energy for him to do this to us and not change?” Seth showed his state of mind at the time. “I don’t know if I am. I’m generally a weak-hearted, weak-minded person. I’ll believe a lot of people, if they get [Tom], what time do I have? “
Seth feels that he “avoided the bullet” thanks to Judd’s intervention. “Thank god Judd was like, ‘Eh, I think we’re good. Let’s just talk about movies and stuff.'”
Seth was relieved, being said to be “tempted” and “if I was alone there, my singing would be different now.”
