Fred: Hey Chris, what are you walking like that for, did you dislocate your hip?
Chris: Dad, I'm pacing and that's my model walk and for the last time my name is not Chris, I'm Sparkles. Chris is dead and he's never coming back. It's been a week since I graduated "Handsome Boy." How come nobody's called with any work for me?
Fred: I don't know. About an hour ago I accidentally knocked the phone off the hook for three seconds, maybe everyone tried to call you then?
Sapphire: Stay out of my way, understand? Because this rockets headed for the stars and there isn't enough oxygen up there for the two of us.
Chris: I'm sorry, what did you say? You got a butt-lift? How embarassing.
The concept for Handsome Boy Modeling School inspired Hip Hop producer Prince Paul (originator of the "skit" on hip hop/rap albums) and fellow producer Dan the Automator to collaborate on a concept album titled after the fictional modeling school.
